Helloo! Welcome to the new week! I had an awesome week off and am not ready to get back into school. BUT...only 3 weeks til Christmas break!

Marvelous is....ULTA

Seriously, I am in love with all of their merchandise, but especially their holiday merchandise. Gift list!

Marvelous is....a wonderful, family and friend - filled Thanksgiving weekend.

I was so glad to spend this Thanksgiving with family whom I rarely see, and also my good friend! And now I know that we're going to visit Grammy and Papa over Christmas break - yay!!

Speaking of which, marvelous is....the Christmas season!!!!!!

I mean really, need I say more?!

Marvelous is..a couple of successful runs

It's really amazing how much endurance and conditioning you lose (or I lost) after a couple of non-running months. But, I really needed those, and I'm excited to work my way back up!

Marvelous is...circuit workouts!

I love these things!! Especially on rainy days. And I love how they combine cardio and strength in a short amount of time.

Marvelous is....Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee

I need more of this coffee, asap! It may just replace Starbucks, dare I say it!

Marvelous is...SAT Practice

Okay, I know that this is kind of a lame thing to be marvelous, but the practices are sooooo helpful in preparing me for the actual test. Which is this Saturday....!!

Marvelous is....finding out that I'm more left-brained than right-brained

So I was a dork and decided to take a left/right brained test. I was 58% left-brained and 42% right-brained, so almost half and half. I totally thought I would be more right-brained - I hate and am terrible at math, anything logical or thought-provoking (ha!) and am certainly more creative than I thought I left-brained person would be. But the results were really surprising, and also quite accurate! Most of my strengths were a combination of both.

Marvelous is....taking a love-language test

I am really really a dork and for some reason, finding out my "love-language" sparked my interest. There are 5 languages, and mine, in order from most to least primary, were: Personal Touch, Quality Time, Words of Affirmation, Receiving Gifts, and acts of service. I'm not surprised at all about personal touch (it almost sounds weird, but it's very important in relationships), but I was surprised about how low receiving gifts was. But I answered as honestly as possible, and that's what I got.

Personal Touch:
A person whose primary language is Physical Touch is, not surprisingly, very touchy. Hugs, pats on the back, and thoughtful touches on the arm—they can all be ways to show excitement, concern, care, and love. Physical presence and accessibility are crucial, while neglect or abuse can be unforgivable and destructive. Appropriate and timely touches communicate warmth, safety, and love to you. (source)

Marvelous new haircut!!

I finally went for it and actually cut off all the gross dead ends. And I love it this length!!

That's all for today guys - have a maaaawwwvelous Monday!!


  1. LOVE the hair! Too cute! I am definitely left brained - no creativity here lol!

    1. Thanks girl - and being left-brained is good! I think you're definitely creative if you can write and keep up a blog! :)

    2. btw, I can't leave comments on your blog for some reason still!!

  2. YOUR HAIR LOOKS GREAT! I also like how you swept the bangs to the side. I also like your straight across bangs. You can rock either one. Christmas makes me so happy!! I smiled so big when I read 3 weeks until break!! (:

    1. Aw, thank you! They're a little grown out, so they get in my eyes when I wear them straight across. And I know, I just want to get through finals and have 2 weeks off!!!! :))

  3. Your hair looks fabulous!! And I love taking tests like that. I'm gonna take the love languages one right now!
    Best of luck on your SAT—I'm sure you'll do great!
