Hey everybody!

It's starting to look a lot like Christmas these days! Been super cold and raining hard for about a week or so. But I've had a great couple of weeks, everything is movin' and a groovin'!
Thanksgiving was a smash hit, Morgan and I got to visit two different houses, eat tons of delicious food, and catch up with some friends into the wee hours of the night. We had a great week, and even though I worked a lot of the time she was here it was so much fun to see her and show her around my little world. The week itself was exhausting, but full of much needed fun. I also have formulated the ABSOLUTE BEST macaroni and cheese recipe ever. Soooo good, and that went over well at the dinner we went to.
My birthday went fabulously well, ate at a restaurant I've wanted to go to since I've moved here. The food was great, company was wonderful, and had a great night celebrating.
Finished up my final marketing project on Thursday, a 25 page project for one of my classes. Wrapped up my budgeting project as well, and did several presentations over this last week. Just two more days of school and then I'm done with my management classes, looking forward to being back in the kitchen. We get to visit some of the top local businesses in Portland and see their kitchens and back rooms on Monday and Tuesday, so that should be fun. Also, my friend Althea and I are trying to plan a little end of the year party for Tuesday night. I don't have to work, and then no school or work on Wednesday! Yippeee!
Most of all, I'm looking forward to having some lovely days of family relaxation in NYC in just over a week! No school, no work, and my family for 10 whole days! I'm so excited I could burst.
Just wanted to catch everyone up! Hope all is well in everyone's part of the world, things here are just lovely!
