Ive been saying I want to get into shape for a longggg time. And im finally doing and being seriouse about it. My mom got me a membership to a very nice gym by my house, and I have to say...ive been working super hard! It has a ton of great classes and little "gadgets" to help me stay on track. I go everyday (except Sunday) And sometimes multiple times. I cant wait to see the results in a month!

This Christmas was a lot different then usual for a lot of reasons. However it was really wonderfull for more reasons than not. I truly am blessed to be here in Argentina. I feel like its really preparing me for my future. Being here means I have to act like an adult sometimes and I think that its a good thing to practice. I had a great time spending Christmas with the missionaries as well. They truly are inspirational. I wish that everyone could see young men and women doing the Lords work, and the effort and dilligiance that they put into their everyday lives.
The people in Argentina really focus more on family time and traditions, more than they do on the gifts and I love it. Honestly just having a good family party, staying up late, having a great time, remembering all the things to be greatfull for, thats the best part of Christmas to me. I was fortunate to recieve great gifts that are helping me reach my goals. My mom really does know me well (:
I hope the missionaries enjoyed talking to their families. It was sooo sweet to watch the Elders in my home talking and sharing their testimonies with their families. These 6 months have gone by fast, but I feel like im finally settled in and am ready to start and complete my goals. I love and miss everyone in Florida soooo much! And I wish you all a Merry Christmas.

You know the song.. "99 bottles of beer on the wall, 99 bottles of beer...
you take one down, pass it around..
98 bottles of beer on the wall.."
Well heres my rendition.. "200 missionary (handmade) snowglobes on the counter..
200 missionary snowglobesssss...
you take one down, pass it around
199 missionary snowglobes on the wall"
Why did I make up this rendition you may ask? Well, my mom had a great idea to make snowglobes for the missionaries for Christmas! Which is awesome and they turned out super cute!!!! They have a little tree with the mission logo and glitter "snow" and the a missionary and his companion are in the jar, with a Argentine ribbon tied on the bottom! Super cute right!? But let me tell you something...doing 200 of anything! That has to be personalized and takes atleasttttt 4 WHOLE days to make, is just too much.
Next year, we of course will make more Christmas presents, but maybe a little more facil (easy) (;
P.S pictures will be comming soon.

I love music. I always have, since I was little listening to children songs..to listening to Enya and Eifal 65. I listen to it all the time! I like listening to new things as well. I would say my favorite kinds of music would be country, Pop, and piano. Now its brazilian music like (Ai se eu te pego) and wachituro music (Argentine) columbian (Shakira) Latin america (Makano).
I find that I learn a lot of spanish by singing to the music. My close friends are brazilian so I often listen to that too, and I love it. Who knew I would ever listen to this music?

I was also able to spend lots of time with some other close friends. Eli decided she wanted to take pictures soo off to photobooth we went. My friends have really helped me settle in nicely and have been here for me since I moved. They respect my religouse beliefs and support me, and I think thats what meens the most. Im so happy to have them, and every moment is so special!

I absoloutly love planning, and decorating and creating new things. Sometimes im at a loss for new ideas. When my cousin came to Fl, a while ago she mentioned a site called Pinterest. I sort of forgot about it, but then one of my sisters mentioned it to me. Needless to say..im addicted....Well maybe not addicted but thats pretty close.
Whenever I have spare time(which that seems to be rapidly decreasing) I hit up Pinterest for new ideas. Im seriouse...that site is the best!!! I use it for baking ideas, hair ideas, style ideas, and so many other things. I love it.
The reason why im blogging about this is because at some point when im older and have a family and have forgotten about this site. I will look at my blog book and remember my great days of pinning.

Yes, indeed. Its 24 days untill christmas and it is summer here in Argentina. If it werent for the stores with christmas decorations, im not sure it would be very evident that its christmas time. For those who are in Florida, I know what December is like. Sometimes warm, sometimes inbetween, and sometimes freeeeeezing! Well here, its nothing but good old high 80¨s...however summers only just barely begun.
I love christmas time! I love picking out presents for everyone and seeing smiles and everyone being so close. I can never go to sleep at a decent time because im so excited! (the funny thing is though, that im always the last person to wake up..by a long shot haha) Im excited for my first Christmas here though! I dont think we where here long enough last time to have celebrated it or atleast I dont remember.
The only thing I was a little bit sad about was that, instead of going and searching for the perfect tree under a huge tent by the side of the road...we went shopping in a store, and brought home our tree in a box. First time ive ever had a fake tree. I must say though it turned out quite cute!
Our usual trees are very elegant and this year I was excited to decorate our tree like Argentina! It turned out way cute (major props to my mom)
