I've been pretty checked out of Blogland this month and when I have stopped by, it's been just for a hot minute. So today I'm just gonna give you a little November update on my life.
:: Here's the thing about working in athletics - November sucks. November is the transition month. By that I mean that the fall sports aren't over yet, like football, soccer, and volleyball, but the winter sports have officially begun, such as basketball, swimming, and wrestling. This month I personally work football, men's soccer, volleyball, men's basketball, women's basketball, and a few stand-alone athletic events. This month alone I have 8 men's basketball games and 7 women's basketball games - and those are just the basketball events! It's just a lot. So I'm tired. This is also my excuse for not being around Blogland.
:: Today is also my oldest brother's birthday. Shout out and Happy Birthday to Michael! (family tree saga and explanation found here, there are diagrams)
|Michael is the one choking his wife.. Christmas 2012. We're so normal.|
:: So as most of you know, when I'm not running around playing athletic supervisor, I work in a CPA office. Well guess what, we're moving! December 1st we will be beginning the process of moving into a new, much needed (holy shit I can't even tell you how much needed) office building. So I mean, if I didn't have enough going on this holiday season, we decided to pack up an entire office and move it. We so smart.
:: When I'm not working, and in between my DVR watching, I've been watching YouTube makeup tutorials. Or makeup hauls. Or makeup reviews. etc. etc. It's turned into an obsession. Just so many beauty videos in general. The good news is that I've been learning so much and you know, if you're a long time reader, my goal in life is to know a little about a lot, just enough to make me dangerous. Boom.
PS. If you need some YouTube beauty blogger recommendations I suggest starting with Laura Vitale, Jaclyn Hill, Nicole Guerriero, or Casey Holmes. But really there are a ton of really good ones out there, so actually if you know of someone, send them to me!
:: I have a thing with smells. Actually, I just decided this entire bullet point could be a blog post, so look for that this week. Here's the quick version - I have a candle addiction and I would rather buy candles over just about anything else. Well currently I have a Buy 2, Get 2 FREE from Yankee Candle coupon in my email inbox and I'm trying really hard to ignore it…. *insert wide-eyed emoji here*
:: OH, Kate, who is one hilarious no-reply blogger, (yea, I'm calling you out, Kate) wrote a comment on my post about my marathon cooking day recently where I talked about how I screwed up my vegetable soup and I didn't know what I was going to do about it.
Well, to update everyone and to make a long story short, I had to throw it away. I tried putting a few whole potatoes in it to soak up some of the salt and them removing those potatoes, didn't work. So then I tried scooping out a ton of the juice and adding new fresh juice, still didn't work. When I say I royally screwed up this soup, I'm being serious. So in the trash it went. Whomp Whomp.
:: This happened yesterday. Running a few errands, came across an RV. I laughed and was all "OMG Breaking Bad, Walter White and Jesse Pinkman are in town, LOL, SO FUNNY, let me get a picture!" and then I took a picture.. And then zoomed in..
That's all for this morning, folks! I have a huge list of things I need to accomplish today and no surprise here, but I have to work a men's basketball game tonight! Hopefully you'll see me again this week, because I have at least 2 post ideas in my head currently, so here's hoping they actually happen.
