Out with the Old..

Bring it on 2011! I am determined to make this a better year. Not that this hasn't been a good year .. well, it's been an OKAY year, but I want this year to be epic! I have big plans for 2011. Yessireebob! On the 31st I will be flying for the first time (to Florida to spend New Years with my friends Toni and Brittany!) which I am counting as 2011 epic moment #1. Hopefully it won't be the only one on my list. I always make a resolution for the New Year. Last year I decided not to drink any soda, and I actually did it! That's right folks, no pop for Kellie for 365 days. I think this might be the first time that I actually did stick it out. This year I have a few New Year resolutions. 1. Drinking ONLY water. This should be more difficult since my no pop kick did not include sweet tea, juice, etc. 2. Running several 5Ks. My goal is to run the first in under 30 minutes. After that I want to drop a minute each race. I think that is very reasonable and it will keep it f

Shingles All the Way

Yes, that's correct. Thanks to Helen, I now have shingles .... during Christmas. HOW WONDERFUL. Thankfully we knew what it was and caught it much earlier than hers, so the medicine should knock it out in about a week.

Oh well, as one of Helen's christmas sweatshirts says, "Tis the Season to be Stressed." haha. I kept telling Helen that no Christmas present in the world can make up for this, but I guess she can't help it. :/ On a brighter note, the Ugly Christmas Sweater Party was a success, for the most part. This is a pic of me with my friends, Brittany and Hilary in our sweaters! :) Merry Christmas!

Who Wears Christmas Sweaters? People Who Don't Like to be Cold.

There are so many wonderful, exciting things about Christmas time. The warmth of the fireplace, being with family and friends, the snow, the hot cocoa, the Christmas sweaters, the....Wait. Did I say Christmas sweaters? Yes, I said Christmas sweaters! Why? Because they can be worn to the Ugly Christmas Sweater Parties! Each year I tear through the corners of stores like Gabes and Goodwill in search of the tackiest, ugliest Christmas sweater ever worn by mankind. After I find that sweater, I go to the dollar store and find more tacky things to glue to it, making it even worse. We all dawn our gay apparel, which gets funnier as the night progresses. Our party is this Saturday. Finals will be over, everyone will be home for break, and i think we deserve to celebrate! SOOOO EXCITED! Sometimes if I don't have time to shop for a sweater, I will just borrow one from Helen. Those that know her also know that she enjoys a good holiday sweater. Well, Zac and I were walking through the
