Disney and Wizarding World, finally!!

Saturday, December 31, 2011 § 0

It's the new year, and I'm going to go ahead and jump the resolution gun by posting all of the photos and posts that I meant to post weeks ago.

SOOO here's a little bit of our trip to Universal Studios and Disney World!
Our new favorite place in the whole world. 

Traditional english breakfast served in The Three Broomsticks!

Butterbeer.  So. effing. GOOD. 

Look at all the Potterheads. 

Round 2!


Getting London-crazy in the Epcot center!

Please hold. DanRad's on the phone. 

And back to Disneyworld for a few more rides.  We had an AMAZING time!

WOW I have not posted in forever.

And that's because I've been at Disney World and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter!!  Pictures and videos to come up soon.

While this week has been absolutely amazing (it was our first time at both parks) it's been filled with stress, too.  A professor accused me of plagiarism, I'm freaking out over grades, and nothing seems to be working out for me the way I planned it.  BUT that's life, and as Christmas is fast approaching I think it's time to dispense of the depressing posts and continue with the magical and fun posts.

Therefore, here's a Christmas Harry Potter picture to make this post less sad.

New room.

So, since the current side of the dorm building that we live on is about to go under construction, we get to move to the other side of the building that is newly renovated.  We even got the chance to pick fourth-floor rooms, which are basically the mansions of Parmalee (not really, but that metaphor got out of hand).  They've got vaulted ceilings, freshly painted walls in nice colors (tan and light olive green, so soothing), and a bathroom that looks like the inside of a Holiday Inn.  And I LOVE the Holiday Inn.

We got the chance to go up there and check it out, and oh my damn...that is some spacious shit.  It got the cogs turning in my head, thinking about how I'm going to decorate my side of the room and I found some pretty beautiful pictures for inspiration on Pintrest:

I'm so excited.  

Pictures of the completed dorm will probably not be available until after'll take us a while to decorate this baby!!

Happy, happy Tuesday, 

I'm having a hard time focusing.

There are a lot of things going through my head, and a lot of attractive college boys wandering through the halls of the library.

It's not my fault the internet works so well in here. And is so fast. And streams videos really quickly.

It's...not my fault.

Happy studying,


I just wanted you guys to see this.

Because I can't stop watching it.

This looks so cute, and I'm in love with both Emily Blunt and Jason Segel.

PERF. Can't wait.

Until later,

Downtown Denver.

When I wrote that title, I accidentally wrote 'Downton' instead of 'downtown'.  I've got Downton Abbey on the brain!  God, I can't wait for the Christmas special.

ANYWAY... I went to the Denver Parade of Lights this weekend.  

And then we went ice skating on Saturday....

Taking forever to put on my skates....

Colorado is such a beautiful place to live.  

Happy holidays from me to you,

P.S... here's a video originally for my family but here I am, sharing it with you.  Enjoy. 

Happy Birthday.

To my wonderful, beautiful, smart, hilarious big sister; my best friend for 18 years. 
You are 21 now so enjoy your newfound freedom (with the alcoholz) and never forget how beautiful and amazing you are.  I LOVES YOU OKAY? 

Happy 21st.  

Today was an ordinary day.

And yet, it was great.  It's the little things, folks, the little things.

Here are my little things:

1. Waking up to snow.

2. Skipping class and watching an old Christmas movie with my roommate.

3.  Impromptu trek across the snow-covered campus for a sandwich with a friend.

4. Eating creamsicles in 20 degree weather.

5.  Trying to sled with a laundry basket but falling face-first into the freezing snow instead.

6.  Running on the track for the first time.

7.  Rewarding myself for (sort of) not cheating on my running with a dinner of watermelon slices.

8.  Pez for dessert.

9.  A call from my wonderful high school yearbook adviser that made me feel 17 again (oh, to be young....)

10.  Homework accompanied by Josh Groban.

It's a wonderful life, folks, so you should hop on board the happiness train and ride it straight to hell.  I honestly don't know where that came from, and it really didn't make any sense, but I'm keeping it on here anyway.  NOBODY'S PERFECT

Hope you guys have a magical weekend.  I'll try to blog on Sunday, since tomorrow me and some friends are driving down to Denver for the annual Parade of Lights.  Please pray that my car doesn't catch a piece of ice and topple off of the interstate.  Kay.  Thanks.

By the way, here's a little clip of our sledding excursion.
