goal schmoal

everywhere I look I see and/or hear people making goals, talking about goals, or already destroying their goals.

I'm not a resolution person. why make a goal for myself that we all know I'm not going to stick to for a whole damn year. geez, 365 days? that's too long.

but I feel like I should maybe do something to up my productivity. I'm kinda over the 101 list to be honest. so I may exnay that and just go with this::

14 is the number this year, so 7 things I shall do. that makes sense, right?

1. clean my room. I mean really clean it, like Stephanie style decluttering. I have way too much shit that just needs new homes.

2. organize movies. I need to do serious organization on my movie collection.

3. healthy eating. just watch what I eat, some ice cream here and there is fine, but I'm gonna try to snack on healthier items.

4. read 15 books. 15 is a lot for me, I don't have a lot of time to read but I do enjoy it. in 2013 I read 16, so lets see if I can do it again.

5. catch up on movies. I haven't seen a lot of movies that are apparently really great, like Dumb and Dumber and Hook. so I need to catch up on my Netflix queue.

6. be patient. I'm going to work on being more patient. I always feel rushed, I always want to get things done immediately.

7. less clothes. clean out my closet. I have too many hoodies/shirts that go unworn, they need new homes.

did you make any goals for the new year?

things my family says (2)

round one was a bigger hit than I thought it would be. then again, my family is pretty damn entertaining.

so, without further ado, I give you...

"it was a lot better than future past ones" - Dad

"dammit, I forgot to tweet about Christmas!" - Mom

"Mom, it's 2014" - Brian

"I hate goats, they should all die" -Mom

honorable mention from my friend Carrie: "I can only day drink so much in a field"

and again, some more from my coworker (all from the same guy)

"so I had an imaginary conversation with you earlier"

"*something in French* it means lovely willow tree. just kidding, it means my small cheese omelet"

"I bought it at Hot Topic, got judged by some guy in a bunny suit.. it was one of the weirder days"

"I'm like a goldfish with eating deviled eggs"

 me: "is there a Kwanza station?"  H: "yea, it's 107.9"  (where we live 107.9 is a rap station.)

and from another coworker...

"Cassie, I can picture you going to Spain and dancing all the time"

hope everyone has a great New Years Eve and a phenom 2014!

my first NHL game

last Saturday my friend Erin and I made the trek from Cleveland to Columbus for the Blue Jackets vs Flyers hockey game. (it's about a 2.5-3hr drive).

on the way down we jammed out to the usual, Backstreet Boys, Nsync, country, lion king music, etc. and we only got slightly lost when my gps told me to get off at an exit and as I'm on the off ramp it rerouted and decided it was a different exit that I should take.

once in Columbus we were going to grab a bite before the game, we attempted to eat at Thurman's which was featured on Diners Drive-ins and Dives, but that was a 40min wait. after that we decided to just park by the arena and walk to a place nearby. we didn't have too much time tho, so we tried Steak Escape, which was a Subway type place but better in my opinion. I got the rajun cajun wrap with chicken. topped with tomatoes and lettuce, some grilled onions, and finished off with hot sauce. it was pretty good.

then we headed into the game. I was rocking my Flyers jersey. (it was the first time I ever rooted for the non-home team.) I got a few high-fives from other fellow Flyers fans. and did a few "woos" when we scored. the Flyers lost 6-3, but it was such a fun time! I even got to see my boy Schenner get in a fight!

Brayden Schenn, or as I call him, Schenner.

to start the game we went up to our actual seats, which were just in the nose-bleeds, but for the 3rd period we went down to better seats and were 20 rows back from the ice. it was awesome. I love the energy at hockey games, the fans are so intense, it's fantastic.

have you ever been to a NHL game?

Christmas Survey

I saw this on Heather's blog, thought it was quite festive, and seeing as it's Christmas Eve...

eggnog or hot chocolate?
I like both.

does Santa wrap presents or just sit them under the tree?
wraps, and labels "from: Santa." the handwriting is very similar to my moms.

colored lights on tree/house or white?
colored. for sure. we do Red, White, and Blue on my house. MERICA!

do you hang mistletoe?
nope. I think one year we put one up though.

when do you hang your decorations?
typically the weekend following Thanksgiving. and get our tree either that weekend or the next, depending on how busy we are. (this year my parents decided to get a fake tree without preparing me for it, and I'm pissed about it. I hate fake trees, I think they're stupid.)

favorite holiday dish?
Christmas breakfast. my momma makes a huge breakfast after we're done with presents and what not. eggs, bacon, sausage, waffles, hashbrowns, the whole shebang. I love it.

favorite holiday memory as a child?
going to my papa's on Christmas Eve and my gram's on Christmas. my cousins, brothers, and I would spend Christmas Eve searching for Santa on one of those websites, and playing games we made up.

what is on your Christmas wish list?
headphones, a new Browns shirt and Tribe shirt, Are You There Vodka It's Me Chelsea, new hair straightener. and then stubhub giftcard, livenation giftcard, kohls/jcpenney giftcard.

do you open gifts on Christmas Eve?
nope. well, kinda I guess.. we go to my cousin's and exchange gifts with them.

snow, love it or dread it?
love it on Christmas and Christmas Eve.. otherwise, it's just eh.

real tree or fake tree?
REAL. no question about it.

do you remember your favorite gift?
I've gotten so many fantastic gifts, I don't know what would be my fav.

whats the most important thing about Christmas for you?
spending time with the fam.

whats your favorite holiday desert?
idk, Christmas cookies...?

whats your favorite holiday tradition?
going to my cousins on Christmas Eve and my grams on Christmas day.

do you prefer giving or receiving?
receiving. lets be honest. I like both actually.. I enjoy the look on their face when they open your gift and see something they wanted or something they like but didn't expect.

whats your favorite Christmas song?
thats a tough one. I love all Christmas music, I guess I'd say...

A Holly Jolly Christmas by Burl Ives on Grooveshark

candy canes, yuck or yum?

favorite Christmas movie?
National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (which also happens to be Luke Bryan's fav too) but I also really love Elf. and Home Alone. and Rudolph. and Prep & Landing.. which isn't technically a movie, but whatever.

what do you leave for Santa?
we used to leave cookies and milk, with a few carrots for the reindeer.

do you prefer to shop online or at the mall?
online I think. this year I basically ordered everything.. but I do love Black Friday shopping.

Christmas letter or card?
we used to send cards out, now we don't send anything. but I like getting cards sent to us.

hope everyone has a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS!! :)
