Ahhhh the first full week of my extra long Christmas vacation has started!! Just soaking it in. You have no idea how good it feels not to have to study ANYTHING… and on a side note I’m 1/7 of the way done with PA school! This semester flew by… I still remember our first day of class like it was yesterday- we were all nervous/excited and had no idea what we were in for. Approximately 30 tests later, we know the ropes.
Thanksgiving break was much needed, but still too short (especially because I had to study for 3 finals, yuck!). It was still very nice to spend some time with friends & family. Ryan & I headed to Marion for lunch with my parents and later that evening went to his sister Jessica’s house for some more turkey & fixin’s. I was a bum and didn’t take any pictures, except for this one. I was very proud of my first homemade cranberry sauce- it was almost too easy.

I also TRIED to go Black Friday shopping, but that didn’t turn out so well. I don’t think I can handle the waiting in line for hours anymore.. I’m too impatient. And I just went to a boutique. You will never find me in a Wal-Mart, especially when customers are stabbing each other to get an Xbox One… makes me sick! Anyways, the break ended with a fun birthday dinner for Ashton- Happy 25th!
I’m probably more excited for Christmas this year than I ever have been. Ryan’s family & my family are both coming to town and there is also a trip planned for the Biltmore House! Surprisingly enough I’ve never been, even though I grew up 30 minutes away, and have been dying to go for a while now. Stay tuned for fun holiday photos!
We kicked off some of the holiday festivities back at Campbell. On the day of our very last exam some of us sported our tacky Christmas sweaters. I was definitely jingling a little bit during our last final, sorry guys! We also hosted the first annual “Save the last PANCE” (cleverly named after our certification exam) in honor of the first graduating class. The night was complete with food, lots of wine, a DJ and the fox song haha. I hope all my classmates have a wonderful LONG break & then we do it all over again on January 2nd!
