Homeward Bound

{Source}

Greetings and Happy Friday!  First things first, isn't that tree awesome?  The lovely Nora found that picture and passed it along to me - it's so fitting for a book-obsessed person like me! I most definitely have enough books to create a tree like that!

After work today, I will head home for Christmas.  It still boggles my mind that it's Christmastime, but I am excited to celebrate with family, eat great food, challenge my grandma to a game of Scrabble (and inevitably lose, seriously she is a master at this game), play some board games, and sleep in a bit each day. 

I'll be heading back on Sunday evening as I need to use my day off on Monday as a study day for the CFA.  Yep, the studying commences.  I have 3 work trips in the first 6 weeks of the year + my sinus surgery so I really need to buckle down and get a solid start on the studying!  I'll be talking more about the CFA in January, so if you are curious about the test/study process, stay tuned! 

For those who celebrate Christmas, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas weekend!  I'll be back next week with a recap, and some 'best of 2011' lists!
