christmas eve.

christmas eve was full of christmas pj’s, christmas treats, christmas songs, and some healthy competition, provided by spouses wrestling and a ping pong tourney. we were having so much fun we didn’t realize how late it was until we went to bed at two in the morning. sorry not sorry.

gina turns twenty one.

it was georgina’s birthday on sunday. we had church and jade’s famous indian chicken and renn’s famous brownies and my famous picture strings. jk they’re not that famous. but they are awesome.
happy birthday george. this was only part one. part two is coming up soon….

before christmas.

our 12/12/12 chrismakkuh party happened and it was a hit. hot chocolate, treats, snowflake making, and we had everyone write down advice for their twelve year old selves. hilarious stuff.
valentina turned twenty four! we went to dinner and went back to her apartment for cake and dancing. i made a funfetti cake using diet cherry 7up instead of eggs and oil. and might i add, it was delicious.
a roommate [plus valentina who is basically a roommate] christmas happened. and to put it lightly, i totally scored. two yogurtland gift cards, an awesome notebook, a star wars kids book [be still my heart], some nail polish, and a beautiful iphone cover. what did i do to deserve such thoughtful friends?

merry and bright.


miss atomic bomb.

i will shortly describe why the new killers music video is absolutely perfect and so wonderful.
1 – it is the prequel / sequel to mr. brightside.
2 – mr. brightside is my favorite song of all time.
3 – mr. brightside is my favorite music video of all time.
4 – this song and video are an extension of these favorite things.
5 – brandon’s face.



i am a huge fan of consecutive numbers. or any patterns of numbers really. i get this from my dad, i’m sure. remember my eleven eleven eleven adventure last year? it was a big deal and it was kind of amazing. these consecutive dates aren’t going to happen again until january 1st, 2101. i can’t even comprehend that right now.
this year my roommates are having a 12/12/12 chrismakkuh extravaganza. it is bound to be legendary. i will give details of the party later. just know that ugly sweaters and my christmas socks are involved. for now, i will list twelve things i love about my life at the moment:
  1. everything the killers have given me this year.
  2. my beautiful and apartment and bedroom.
  3. the fact that i get to see my family in ten [!!!] days. should the world choose not to end.
  4. and i get to see the killers in seventeen days.
  5. learning that things can change drastically in a short amount of time.
  6. robin sparkles, my spirit animal rav4.
  7. my rediscovered love for reading and writing.
  8. the velvet taco.
  9. my family and friends who love and support me and think it’s awesome i live in texas.
  10. i live in texas.
  11. being gently reminded that you never get to stop making friends.
  12. learning that i really can have great control over my life and attitude.
happy 12/12/12 y’all! go kiss someone’s face.
