Four more days until Christmas! I swear this year has flown by. The pic above is from Rockefeller Center; I usually take this picture myself ever year since my job was the next block over, but since I’m in GA this year, I wasn’t able to 😦
Anyway, my first semester of grad school is over and I am happy to see that all of my hard work has paid off. Before I started I decided that I wanted to graduate Summa Cum Laude, and to reach that dream I have to start with one class, and making sure I do well. So for this class, my final grade was 98. I was so excited that I posted a picture of my grade on Instagram and one of my sisters’ asked: “Where’s the other 2%?”. I guess you can’t please everyone.
I am done with my Christmas shopping. I am not one of those people who like to wait until the last minute. I bought Lorenzo 3 gifts and I bought a gift for my grandmother. A few years ago I suggested that my family do Secret Santa, this way we can include everyone and we only have to buy one gift. I bought her a new purse, some earrings, and I gave her some Mary Kay products too. I don’t know which of my family pulled my name, but I haven’t received my gift yet 😦 I hope I don’t have to start making phone calls.
I don’t have a clue what Lorenzo got me, but I’m pretty sure it will be good. He is really good a gift giving. But since he never gives any clues as to what he wants, I got him some stuff that I know he wants: a new pull over V-neck sweater, 2 dress shirts and I also got him a gift card so that he can get a new suit from Jos. A. Bank. I’m not a fan of gift cards, but he is very “particular” about his style, so I’ll go with him to pick it out.
I’ll make sure to update you guys on what he gets for me and I hope that he likes his gifts too. I am also still working on my New Year’s Resolution list and want to make sure I am not just making a list, but also a plan to make sure that I stick to them.
So, is everyone done with their Christmas shopping? What are some last minute gifts ideas for the people that you love? I would love some new gift ideas for men. I sometimes have no clue what to get Lorenzo and I want to get a head start on his birthday…..in June.
