This beautiful watercolor of me in Paris painted by my grandpa.

The first Friday of December always puts me in a countdown mood.

1 more Friday before Darrin and I adventure down to Iowa to visit two dear friends.

2 more Fridays before the fall semester officially ends.

2 more Fridays before our crazy busy but always enjoyable Christmas week begins.

4 more Fridays before we’ll have officially rung and kazooed in the New Year.

5 more Fridays before my baby sister marries her best friend.

6 more Fridays before we can finally breathe after all of that wedding hullabaloo.

We’re counting down to a lot of excitement over here. Research breaks. Road trips. Weddings. And Darrin and I might just kick off this first Friday of December at the local bowling alley, where I’ll show off my notoriously horrible but incredibly creative bowling technique. You wanna see a gutter ball? Oh I can show you a gutter ball, my friend. THAT, I can DO.

So here are a few shots of ourΒ Insta-life from snowy Minneapolis!

Hope you have a great weekend!
