I'm Back!!

It feels like forever since I have written a post in awhile. I think I have been in a writing rut and not to mention the holiday season is in full swing.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, full of food and family and not to mention the long weekend off from work was amazing. Don't get me wrong I love my job but there is something about waking up on a Monday after having four days off that just makes you feel blah. Not to mention I've given up coffee cold turkey so my mornings are very interesting. Trust me it has been hard, not just the headaches from the withdrawal but I also just miss it!

My holiday season is booking up pretty fast, I love it but sometimes I just want no plans at all. I just want to sit back and enjoy the season. I put up all my decorations this weekend and will be getting our tree next Sunday, early I know but I want to enjoy it instead of rushing to put it up and take it down. Ryan thinks I'm nuts but I secretly think he loves it! 

Well I must get ready to head to work, but I just wanted to jump on here quick to let all those know that I have not abandoned my blog, just took a little hiatus to get my head together.

Enjoy your Monday!

Until next time.

Some Snowfall and a Thursday Link-Up

Hello my blog loves, one day closer to Friday, how can you complain...oh wait it snowed yesterday! I could not believe it when I glanced outside this morning and saw the snow covering the ground.

Not okay!

Anyway, its Thursday and I'm linking up for It's Ok Thursday. Not sure if I can come up with enough things that I am letting slide this week, but I will try. 

It's okay...

...that I am going to start my Christmas shopping and decoration planning this weekend.

...that I have finally realized I need to get into shape and will start working out everyday before work.

...that I haven't had time to catch up on my celebrity gossip. Miss my Perez.

...that I'm listening to Christmas music.

...that I bought new boots last weekend and I will be buying them in black this weekend.

...that I have given up on working on some friendships, I'm happy with the people in my life.

....that I have NO IDEA what to get Ryan for Christmas. No Clue!!!

...that I get tired at 8:00. Is it bedtime yet?

Well with it being almost 8, I better get ready for bed haha but seriously. I'm going to go cuddle with the guy for a bit, then off to bed.

Goodnight all....until next time.

My Fellow Americans

Happy Election Day! I hope everyone had the chance to get out and vote today! I voted via absentee ballot because I'm now living in MA and just haven't registered here yet. Anyways I was pretty excited that I was able to vote and as we sit here in anticipation waiting for the election shows to start and the ballots to be counted, I thought I would take some time to write a bit.

I'm sure everyone has heard about the Nor'Easter that may be hitting New England this week. Don't get me wrong this is my favorite time of year I love the holidays and spending time with family and friends, but the weather that accompanies this time of year is not my favorite. I don't like being cold and I hate the snow. But all I can do is throw on a cute scarf and jacket and face the elements. That was my little vent sesh for the night.

Speaking of the holiday season. As crazy as it seems, I am going to get a head start on my Christmas shopping this weekend. I have quite the lengthy list of loved ones this year and need to start now so I don't overwhelm myself. Also, its the first year me and Ryan are celebrating the holidays in our own place which means I have to of course start my collection of decorations as soon as I can! 

If only my living room looked like that!

Well stay warm everyone and if I don't write (because I'm too wrapped up in Christmas shopping, no pun intended) enjoy the weekend!

Until next time!

Friday is The Best Day

I love that feeling of waking up on a Friday when you know this is your last day to have to get up early, its a great feeling.

I have failed as a blogger this week but I have just been too tired to post. But I made a promise to myself that if I could post at least once a week I would and here it is!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Halloween! We had no Trick or Treaters which made me sad but I kind of had a feeling living in an apartment that we really wouldn't have any but of course I bought candy anyway, now I must fight and have strong willpower not to eat it.

I know I swore up and down that I would not see Paranormal Activity in theaters, but I was peer pressured into it. Ryan had his friends up on Tuesday night and we went out for a few drinks and the next thing I knew I was at the movies. In all honesty it wasn't that scary - a few jumpy parts but nothing like the others.

This weekend looks nice and relaxing which is good because before we know it the holidays will be in full swing and it will be busy busy busy. I will be spending Saturday visiting with family and just enjoying the beautiful weather we are expecting. Sunday of course will be house keeping and football per usual!

Have a good Friday everyone!

Until next time!
