Hey y’all! I’m interrupting our regularly scheduled program with another non-fashion type blog post on this lovely Blogmas Day 9! Don’t worry and don’t fret, because this will be just as good, if not better.
Let me give you all some back story. My roommate (and best friend) and I have been doing a “Roomie Christmas” together every year since we were in the dorms as little bitty freshmen. It’s hard to do Christmas Christmas together being from different states and having different schedules, but we always seemed to find time to create our own holiday before we go home to our families. It’s a tradition we both love and cherish and hope to take along into the future, even when we aren’t roommates anymore (sad to think about, I know).
December 9th, 2018 marked the last Roomie Christmas as college undergraduates at the University of Iowa, and honestly it was the best!
We tipped off the celebration with some Christmas music and dancing, followed by a Christmas tree photo shoot (of course), and next our 3rd roommate joined us for the construction of our gingerbread village, Ginger-ville. Honestly, I know it seems silly! But it’s always been the perfect way for us to take a break from finals and destress for a little while before the real grind of finals week begins. And I mean, c’mon, it’s an EXTRA CHRISTMAS!
So this year was super special because of one gift in particular. It’s our senior year, so it’s marking a lot of our lasts. And one last that I don’t want to think about is the fact that this will be our last year (and now semester) together as roommates. So what does she do? She gets the one gift that brings all those things I was pushing down STRAIGHT BACK UP! From our first selfie together to our most recent memories, she got all the important events and moments to fit onto one blanket.
Instant flood gates!
Sarah absolutely KILLED IT too! From the giraffe mug and the fun tea to the candle and chocolate, she obviously knows me well! I’m already sipping on her presents as I sit and write this blog post! I’m so thankful for my roomies and I’m so glad that this last Roomie Christmas went down with tears, cheers, and reminiscing the years. Thanks to Sarah and Megan for being the best roommates and for making my Christmas away from Christmas extra special.
I will definitely miss having two Christmases and I will miss having a best friend as a roommate, but you know what they say. When one door closes, you make a blanket so you can remember every piece of it!
All the details of this year’s “Roomie Christmas” are pictured down below! Including what I received!
I got her a less impressive blanket! But she loves pink, so she loved it!
And that’s a wrap on Roomie Christmas 2018! Thanks for tuning in folks! Tomorrow be ready for your usual fashion fix!
