I think I will drop out of school, sell everything I have and move to France, where I will carry a French baguette in my purse, eat chocolate like it's my job, and pitch a tent at the top of the Eiffel Tower. I will wear totally awesome boots every day of my life and to fit in I won't shave. Definitely beats studying 13 hours a day...can you tell I've reached my limit?
Thankfully, I have a study buddy!
Also, it is freezing here! What happened to Christmas in shorts?
But, thankfully, I have this fur ball to keep my feet warm...and those lovely slipper socks. (By the way, I am wearing jeggings....can I please tell you that I LOVE them. The comfort of leggings the style of skinny jeans. The end.)
So because I have no life/time right now, and because it's, "31 degrees at the most famous beach in the world" (said the country music radio station this morning), I made Tomato Basil soup. Even though I don't usually like tomato soup I have fond memories of it. It's like the winter wonderland food of choice. It just makes me think of winter and snow and grilled cheese and panera. I really liked this recipe. You should try it.
