blargity blargh…that weekend was too short! Back to the grind…so monotonous.
I’ve given myself a challenge–to try and not live for the weekend. It’s hard for me. Even though I love the week & enjoy what I do throughout, I LOVE the weekends so much.

OK…so that sheet of photos right there? Yeah, that’s me….like right now.
Several weeks ago at work I had to take a photo on picture day for the yearbook. Of course I did not know this until about two minutes before said photo was taken and I completely forgot about said photo two minutes after it was taken. That is, until I check my mailbox this morning and find this.
Seriously y’all…this is is just getting crazy. The older I get, the YOUNGER and YOUNGER I appear. Seriously–how old is the person in this photo? 12? Maybe pushing 13 or 14?
Real answer? I’m turning 28 next month. Like, as in two years away from 30.
Is it that I do not wear makeup? Is it all the yoga? Is it that I refuse to smile like a normal person and more like an unsettled elf? I’m sure I’ll appreciate this youthful look one day, but when you’re accused of being undercover by the Trader Joe’s wine cashiers, it’s a little more than annoying.

wow–I know it’s already Tuesday, but I just have to talk about my wonderful weekend. The weather was beyond beyond beyond–had the windows open all weekend. Nothing particularly crazy happened but oh it was wonderful.
Saturday: teaching some great yoga classes, walking dogs, bookclub outside with wine, having my parents over for lasagna, then we worked on our jigsaw puzzle while drinking and playing cards–so fun!
Sunday: big yoga practice, cleaning and laundry while watching Real Housewives of New York (Aviva be crazy!! And I’m worshiping Carole this season), porch sitting at Rach’s with loads of spinach dip + big slices of chocolate cake, reading, meatloaf dinner at the parents w/ Kaylex, followed by an evening sitting out by the fire pit.
Ahhhh it was so great! Evidence here in instagram photos:

Falling asleep typing this…long, but such a fun holiday weekend. Tons of food, drink, and laughs with great friends and family, including two Thanksgiving dinners, “light up” festival downtown, and the putting up of two Christmas trees!
Tonight was some much needed relaxation with homemade pizza, tomato soup, and SkinnyGirl margarita. Now getting in bed to start a new book. Looking forward to three days of PTO…no work until Thursday!
best $5.00 I’ve spent in a loooong time:

Feeling very contented today. Not only did we finally get internet in the new house, but digital cable and DVR too! I know this might sound silly to most, but for us this is BIG. We haven’t had channels on our TV in three years…we are still in shock.
Now that it is officially the Christmas season, I can start playing carols and decorating! This morning I am cooking for Andrew’s family Thanksgiving, which is later this afternoon.

Pretty gloomy day for my birthday—major rain and dark, dark clouds. Plus I had to work all day–in a very quiet office with a very slow-moving clock. However, I still managed to find a few ways to brighten up the day:
New birthday socks—-thanks Mom!
First Peppermint Mocha of the season:
One more day of work, then playtime for an entire week! Let’s hope that we can get internet in the new house before then…

A couple weeks ago I mentioned why readers hate to move…Now that we are finally settled into the new house, I realize I kind of love moving because I get to put the books back on the shelves. I’m sure all readers can identify with me right? I mean, how satisfying is it to arrange and rearrange your treasures until they are “just so” on those bookshelves?
Ideally this is done while drinking a fancy beverage and listening to some fabulous music. For this particular move, I enjoyed wine and my Best of 2011 playlist, which includes some Adele, Ellie Goulding, Bon Iver, and many more…but just wait, I’ll get more into that in a future post.
I always feel more settled when my books are in their rightful places. Speaking of, I think I will go read right now.

Pretty cute shark, but after watching American Horror Story I wouldn’t want to be here after dark.
