London & Edinburgh

I have been absent from my blogging for quite a while now! Over Thanksgiving break, I was in London visiting my best friend Jess for 10 ten days. It was a lot of fun and VERY expensive. We also went to Scotland on Thanksgiving day for 3 days. It was a blast and very cold there. I saw my very first "real" castle. Here are a few photos from my trips:

My 50

I am a person who loves making goals for myself and I am stubborn and stick to them... that's just how I am! So for those of you who love goal setting, check out My 50. It's a website where you can add the "fifty" things you want to accomplish in your lifetime. It's a lot of fun to do and you can also see what other people have as their goals to get ideas and inspired. Feel free to check out my list as well. Enjoy!

Yesterday for Halloween, I went bar hopping with my friend's family & friends. They rented a bus to take us bar to bar and there were about 80 people there. The theme was Frankenstein, but Kurt and I planned to be pirates before we knew we were going to this. So Kurt dressed as Jack Sparrow and I got a pirate costume off ebay for $16.00 and cut the bottom of the skirt to give it a more pirate feel. We had a lot of fun but were very tired by the end of the night. I can't believe Halloween's over!!
