Mic check, mic check. One, two. Testing. One, two.
I know what you're thinking. Who is this person?!
|That's me, in case you've forgotten.. Or in case you don't follow me on Instagram|
Let's not be boring and discuss my multiple reasons I've been totally missing from Blogland. Because honestly, who cares? Instead, today I'm going to get you all caught up on my life, so we can get back to your regular programming.
\\ I know I just got done saying I wasn't going to talk about my absence, but I did want to say that a contributing factor to the lack of blog posts is because I was not enjoying it as much as I would have liked. As I told Allie the other night, I just needed a break to remember why I like blogging and to remember why I think it is important, especially to me. Last week I started to miss it, so I think that was the sign I was looking for.
\\ While I've been gone from Blogland, I've been working. Working and working and working. I'm a little burnt out, if we're being honest. I was just talking to my dad yesterday about how it was almost hard for me to enjoy Thanksgiving, because I worked so much every day leading up to it and then I knew I had to work the entire weekend following Thanksgiving. And I hate that. I hate that I don't feel like I got to really enjoy the holiday, especially considering I was completely surrounded by so much of my family and that was so wonderful. Now I sound like a whiney brat.
\\ The night before Thanksgiving, because our town is a college town, we always have "Townie Night" at the bars. I usually skip out on Townie Night, but this year I was talked into going and I'm so glad I did! I got the chance to catch up with a lot of old friends who are usually not in town and spend some much needed quality time with some of my best friends, who have been very patient with me all month long while I was hibernating.

\\ My tree is up! It's all gold and silver this year and I'm a little in love with it! It feels very classic or maybe I'm just reading too much into a Christmas tree.
\\ ALSO, I've been DVRing Christmas movies (i currently have 17 on my DVR waiting for me, this is not a lie or an exaggeration) and I'm currently watching a Hallmark Channel movie and they are bleeping out the word "God". A Christmas movie is bleeping out the word God. I'm so annoyed by this that I'm not going to comment on it further.
\\ My favoritest lady Sarah sent me this sweater on Twitter and I was like "OH THAT'S SO CUTE, I NEED THAT" andddd then I actually went and bought it. I'm totally in love and obsessed.
\\ We are officially (i think?) moving offices this week! I'm a tiny bit stressed thinking about it, but I'm mostly really excited to not be in the current office anymore. The logistics of this move are a nightmare, I have to say. Also, my poor boss lady may or may not have extended herself a little thin this month, so she's stressed, which makes me stressed. Basically, if you live in the area, steer clear of my office this week!
That is going to be all the catching up for you guys today! I think it's about time for me to get to work!
