Crazy Christmas Break

I know I look like a blogging machine right now...however, I thought I would give some updates while our internet is actually cooperating. Not to mention, I really do not want to study for my Church History final.

My last final is today and Jeff's is tomorrow. After that, our Christmas break officially begins, but we will still be in NB for a few days. We are going to Kari and Andy's wedding on Saturday. Jeff wanted to stay around for the staff Christmas party this year, so we are not flying out until Tuesday. Be will be driving down to Boston with the newlyweds. They will be spending their honeymoon there and driving our car back to NB, and we are flying out of Boston to go to Minnesota. For the first few days we are in Minnesota, Jeff will be on the farm, finishing up his truck (hopefully). I will be staying in the Cities with our friend, Raquel. That weekend Jeff will pick me up and we will head north to my parents' where we will be staying through Christmas. On the 26th we will drive down to Morris to see some of Jeff's family (including his parents who will be up). That we be a very short visit because we are then driving down to Oklahoma. We will spend a few days visiting Jeff's grandparents in Oklahoma before driving back to NB.

It is going to be a crazy break. We probably won't get as much rest as we are used to, but hopefully we will get some. The best part about all of this is that when we get back, we will be starting our LAST semester of classes. That is such an exciting thought. Have a great day everyone. much love

Red Whale

In the last post, I mentioned us drinking Starbucks. However, I am not a huge fan of Starbucks (but it does beat Tim Horton's any day). This year, through some friends of ours, we discovered this amazing little coffee house near St. John...Red Whale. Even though it is a 45 minute drive, we love going up there on date night, to read, to study, for meetings...for just about anything. They have all sorts of specialty teas and coffees. Everything is fair trade and delicious. Our favorite is their Mexico blend, although Kenya is good as well. They also sell all sorts of syrups, and have a sugar-free options which is great for South Beach. We have definitely been drinking a lot more coffee since this discovery. If you're ever in New Brunswick, we highly recommend you check it out. Words cannot describe...

Kari's Bachelorette Party

A few weeks ago some of us girls went out for Kari's bachelorette party. We went to St. John for the night. We had fun walking around beautiful dowtown St John, eating some Mexican food (which is hard to come by in NB), shopping at Indigo, and drinking some Starbucks. Kari's wedding is this Saturday, and we are really excited for it.
