I know I’m posting a lot later than I normally do, but damn, this weekend (or entire week, rather) has gotten away from me! What is it about the holidays that makes time go by in a flash? We’ll be celebrating the new year in no time…eeeek!
Anyhoodles, I wanted to pop in with my “currentlies” for November…partly because you guys know I LOVE this post each month and partly because I feel like we haven’t “talked” in a while! Oh and look at that, I got a haircut! Yep, this is what happens when you go to get a “trim” after six months of dead and split end build up…I had to say goodbye to TWO INCHES of my Rapunzel lock, but hot damn, look at that volume!
I was in the mood for a good, fun read this month, so I pulled The Nanny Diaries out of my bookcase and shook the dust off. I bought it at a used bookstore years ago and never read it. Within the first three pages I was laughing my ass off. It’s pretty much the babysitter’s version of The Devil Wears Prada…only WITHOUT a happy ending. I wanted to chuck the luckily-it-was-only-twenty-five-cents book across the room! Seriously, I believe all books without happy endings should come with a warning label. Grrr!
Still gearing up (and practically shaking with excitement) for the Glass Animals concert…in THREE DAYS!!!!
Current Guilty Pleasure:
ALL THE PUMPKIN THINGS!!! Somebody stop me! Umm, no wait…don’t. 😉
Current Nail Color:
I am so impatient when it comes to painting my nails…I almost always end up smudging more than half of them before they’re completely dry. But I did miraculously find the time to do a little at-home manicure twice this month…rocking an ancient bottle of Avon polish!
Netflix released new episodes of The Carrie Diaries!!! For a girl who’s never watched more than five episodes of Sex in the City, I sure do get excited! 😆
Honestly? I’m feeling overwhelmingly content at the moment. I have everything I could want out of life right now which feels absolutely incredible.
I think it’s safe to say, I expressed my love of bars this month…is it bad that I just obtained two more boxes to my already never-ending stash? FYI, the correct answer is no.
The ongoing obsession…which only helps me justify my coffee buying addiction. Ha!
I made up for the fact that I waited a YEAR to get Elvira’s oil changed by renewing my driver’s license AND my car tags a whole MONTH early!
Current Bane of Existence:
The dark days of
hell winter hell.
Current Blogger Crush:
Tracy aka Tracy Shutterbean. I’ll confess that this has been going on for a WHILE now. I’ve been stalking her on Instagram for umm, almost a year? She takes the most beautiful photos…of anything! She’s a list lover, an amazing cook, has a fabulous eye for organization and decor, and one of the coolest moms out there!
Also, I NEEEEEED her kitchen table!
I got a massage a couple of weeks ago…first one in MONTHS! Omg, it felt so good!
Not sure if it’s just that time of year or what, but I can’t help but pause and feel so incredibly thankful for everything (and one) in my life right now. Family, friends, coworkers, person who let me out in traffic the other day…I know, *gag*! 😆
My goal to go pant-less for the entire winter season just got a little easier with yet ANOTHER addition to the leggings collection. Thank you TJ Maxx!
Oh my god you guys…oh.my.god! Not only did I get Friday and Saturday off for my birthday (which is actually on Sunday), but I also get to travel to my favorite winery for a WINE TASTING CLASS! It was only $45 for a ticket and they teach you all about how to be a wine snob…and you get a set of glasses to take home with you!
What’s gotten you sthuper duper excited this month? 😉
