There's children throwing snowballs instead of throwing heads they're busy building toys and absolutely no one's dead!

Apparently we’ve all arrived in Christmas Town here on Blogger & the world like Jack Skellington up there. However my favorite part of Christmas is driving around and seeing all the lights. Some people go all out like the Griswolds & the sides of my mouth can’t help but curl up in a smile. I enjoy getting the gifts, not necessarily the shopping madness, but the look of “OMG YOU GOT THIS FOR ME??!! I WANTED THIS!!” makes it worth it. I can’t wait to wear my black & red Santa hat this season & get my tree up early this year not 3 days before. Soo much to do, literally…Where is the time going?

I can’t believe its December. It baffles me how much my life has changed since last December. I was so depressed last year for so many reasons. I was lost in the sea of my decisions & getting over the consequences. I’m shaking my head as I write this because it was a very hard time for me. But the difference a year will make. I think that’s why I’m so enamored by the movie & story behind, “Eat Pray Love”. She grew into a new healthy more beautiful & true to herself person. I think I did some of the same.

Since last December I’ve found someone I might want to spend the rest of my life with. I have a new love for cupcakes & all the decorations. I don’t have any better patience, BUT I speak my mind more. I’m not settling for the least, I’m striving for the best. I might get into my first place next week…last December that was a pipe dream in my head that I never thought it could be a reality. I got to see my favorite band in concert and EVEN after 3 years they still remember me from being in their music video. I’ve lost 10 pounds, gained 20 pounds, lost 5…but I now know the value of the gym. Sometimes you need a lil help, I think I’ve learned that it’s okay to ask for help. I’ve been to States I’ve never been to & widen my lil life more than ever.

I think what I find coolest is what I’ve done that was NOT on my New Year’s resolutions. Hehe.

Well I got one month left to finish those odds & ends of the year. I gotta find my New Year’s Resolution list so I can see what maybe I squeeze into the last month. Oooo my zombie novel. It’s been in the back of my mind for months that I haven’t worked on it. Maybe I’ll go hardcore on that….hmm it’s a plan. Okay off to sleep to dream of zombies. 

What’s your resolution from 2010 you’re going to try to get done in December? I’d love to hear!

Am I hearing wedding bells? Haha- out of everything that one sentence is the only one I want to talk about. Haha. Well, I am super happy this year has turned around for you.

Krystal said...

I love how you said the coolest things you've done were not in your resolutions- it's so true! We just never know what is coming up in life and who knows what will come this coming year! isn't it exciting :)

C'est La Vie said...

every year i make a priority to go out and see the lights everywere.
i just watched nightmare before christmas last night!! :) tim burton rocks

tess said...

you really have had a great year Melanie! I am so happy for you and so proud of you! You really made the dream happen this year and I agree that striving for the best is 10x better than settling. You're an inspiration to persevere on longterm goals (your new condo! excited for you!) and to just see where life takes you (CJ!).

My goals for next year:

*start writing something, anything. I've been thinking about it for half a year now, better write something finally!

*figure out what I want to do this summer whether that be an intense internship or just a job. But whatever I decide will point me in the direction of my future career

just call me jo said...

I'm VERY old so I don't make resolutions any more. It's futile...and I can't remember them after I make 'em. I know, I could write them down. Nah! Too rigid. I'm weird and old.

Melissa Blake said...

Hahahaha, I'm not even sure I HAD a 2010 resolution!

Couture Carrie said...

Inspiring and lovely post, darling!

I have some blogging goals I still want to accomplish before the year is out...

Okay, first off, I really want to watch The Nightmare Before Christmas now. Loooove that movie! Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday. I love the decorations and everything. I've already got my tree up (well, a few trees. Lol.) and lights on the house. This year just flew by didn't it?

Overall it sounds like you've had a good year. So here's hoping that things get even better! :)

Teenage Bride said...

Hello dear!! December certainly does sneak up on us!! I LOVE IT!

Bathwater said...

I'm glad the condo is finally working out. It has started to snow here that is the first actual sign I've seen that has even made me feel that Christmas is close.

Kristin said...

Love and cupcakes...Does it get any better than that?

the eternal list said...

y'know, i've always wanted to watch NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, always say i will, but never find the time. will my netflix queue help me out this year? maybe...

:*

My resolution is to be more patient. I also love driving around to look at all the Christmas lights, my whole family would do that every year around the holidays. So fun.

applepie said...

You know honestly, I thought that the main character in Eat Pray Love was a real selfish person. She was winy and just thought about herself.
Just my two cents.

What do I want to do in December? My list is about a mile long. But what I'm working on right now... losing 10 lbs!

The Owl Diary said...

Sounds like you've had quite the year. I hope I'm in a happier place by next December. & I agree-- I don't know where the time is going. Only a month until 2011! ♥

Cole Garrett said...

Sounds like we were riding the same waves this year. I was a complete wreck by the end of 2009, but 2010 was the best year of my life!! And there's still a teeny bit left in it!

I hope the possible-love-of-your-life thing works out for you! Hey, maybe both of us will get respectively married next year. :-P

Cafe Fashionista said...

Personally, the arrival of December has made me sad for the sheer fact that it just doesn't seem like Christmastime to me. I feel like Cindy Lou Who in "How the Grinch Stole Christmas." Where are you Christmas?

Luckily, I never made resolutions for New Year's; thus, I have nothing that I need to accomplish before 2010 is out!! :P

Katy said...

Congratulations on having a successful 2010! I've had a bit of an up and down year too, and I'm looking forward to making the most of 2011...

Four said...

Congratulations on the steps you've taken! Have a fantastic holiday!

Happy December. And if you need a reader for your zombie novel (ahem) please email it to me. I'm an AWESOME pre-reader and I super know a lot about the undead. :)

I don't make resolutions for New Year. I make Anti-Resolutions. :)

Oh gosh, Nightmare on Christmas is my sisters favourite movie. I was so scared of that movie as a child and now I cant even sit and watch an animation or cartoons ): I guess this is another reason of when I discovered I was all grown up. No longer having the patience to watch cartoons is really really sad and depressing because it means I no longer take life as it flows, it means I know have anxieties and worries and cannot chill out and be comforted by the humour of animations ):
