Every time I come here to write, my mind immediately goes blank. I have so much I want to share, but I can’t seem to form coherent sentences or meaningful thoughts. Does that ever happen to you?
Nonetheless, I apologize for my absence. I don’t like half-assing anything in life, and this blog is no exception.
So, where have I been? Grab a cup of coffee and let’s catch up.
I got to go home and spend time with my family for Thanksgiving, which was wonderful and refreshing. I spent 90% of the long weekend on my parents’ couch watching Christmas movies and eating pie; as every 25 year old with a few days off of work should.
The other 10% of my weekend was spent waiting in line with my little brother to get our picture taken with Santa at the mall. I’m not kidding.
The following week, Frankie D turned 26! We celebrated with some beers and a shotski of Fireball, followed by a most classy dinner out in the Village at L’Artusi
where I ate enough pasta and brussel sprouts to last me until 2014.
Sidenote: Movember is officially over, therefore Frank and I are hanging out again. (I don’t do beards.)
I went to my first (and thankfully not last) Ugly Christmas Sweater Party of the season. Deck the halls with… bows of grosgrain? Don’t mind if I do.
I even got a kiss under the mistletoe! Great success, indeed.
On Monday night, Kelsey had the girls over for what she dubbed an “Elevated Ramen” night… better known as a “We Are Poor and Can’t Afford Much Else” night. For a measly $7.34, this meal fed 8 people. And it was freaking delicious. And I made new friends. You can’t ask for much more than that!
We may be poor, but we are fabulous.
Besides all of that, I’ve been BUSY both personally and professionally; trying to wrap up 2013 and lay down a solid foundation for 2014. That sounds lame as Hell, but I mean it. Bring on the New Year! I’m ready for a new adventure.
(But first… Christmas.)
What’s new with you? XOXO
