Excuse me while I clean some of this dust of the blog. This time of year is so tough for me because of the holidays and my show schedule at work. I am still walking around like a cast member of the Walking Dead, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel and I am starting to see a glimmer of it. Have you ever been so tired that everything ends up becoming silly? You just laugh because you have no idea what else to do. That is where I am. Its better than crying I suppose (although yesterday I did feel like crying because I am so tired, worn down, burnt out, and not feeling well). Next weekend is my last weekend of working and then my social life (what there was of one) will slowly be coming back .
I thought I would take you one this crazy month through pictures. I could write out an extremely long post, but who wants to read when they can look?
Let’s back up to December.
At work, I stared sharing my office with our new employee. I didn’t mind at first, but today I find myself plotting destruction to his chair. The singing, the humming. MAKE IT STOP!!! LOL. After over a month of SHARING MY SPACE, he moves into his office tomorrow. Holy Lord, thank you Jesus. I am not trying to be mean, but when you have to practically share your desk for a month………..
I bought Matt’s wedding ring:
We celebrated Christmas with both of our families and one of my favorite things I got was this book (I received many amazing things, but I could not take a picture of them)
Matt’s brother-in-law has challenged me to complete a few projects from this book (since he gifted it to me). Hold up…lets get through the wedding, friend. We have lots o’ projects to complete there.
We moved. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, but it was mighty cold. We ended up going with a smaller apartment, but we will be saving $300 a month just on rent. And the commute? MUCH EASIER!! The area we are in is so quiet and while we still have a crazy methed out neighbor above us, as long as she has crashed from her high, it is rather peaceful.
I know I posted this before, but its worth telling again. I MADE IT! One year without french fries. Since the big day I could start eating them again, I have made sure to have fries at my favorite places. Want to know something? They aren’t very nice to my stomach. In fact, I am thinking of cutting them almost out of my diet because I just don’t like them as much as I used to. I will still enjoy them, but I am not going to gorge myself.
Again, I know I posted this before….I started taking protein shakes in the morning to help curb my monster appetite. Since doing this, I have lost 6.2lbs! Then work and eating went a little crazy, but I am still maintaining my 6.2. I am also going to start hitting the gym to really get in shape. I saw a pin on Pinterest that really inspired me. For every time you work out, you throw a dollar in the jar. After x amount of days, you take that money and do whatever you want. I think I am going to track my weeks and after every week, throw a dollar into savings. I am in desperate need of new clothes and shoes, so at the end I think I will treat myself to a visit to the outlet mall. I haven’t thought it through, but on workouts I really push myself to be better, I want to give a higher dollar amount. Motivation you see.
My work friends all came down to Atlanta to help work on my crazy show and while they were here, we had plenty of fun nights out. One night, Thomas Jefferson joined us for margaritas. He is a good guy
We had skee ball tournaments and an intense ping pong match (I lost both).
Here is where the silliness started kicking in. It was week who knows of working straight through and we were all so very tired. So tired we decided to hang art on my wall while leaving the cardboard corners on. And yes, my picture is still hanging (cardboard corner intact).
Here is a picture of one of three show floors after my show moved out and while we were moving another in. In case you were curious.
An exhibitor gave us their Unicorn Droppings after they made a batch of candy. The candy this company makes is really awesome and I wish I had better pictures of their process, but my cell phone sucks. I can do many things with the droppings….I can grind it up and use the flavored sugar to bake with (my flavor is blueberry i believe), I can cut chunks off and put them in coffee, or just eat as candy.
Look what I found in the trash! These are now going to become my project pieces for the wedding. Stay tuned for a DIY!
The Voice had their auditions at work. No Adam sightings though. Just the producers and talent search. I should have asked….do you think the producers look at the singers? Or are they soley judged based on voice?
And finally some friends and I went to dinner on the last night they were here and we had such a great time. I tried this banana bread beer and it was surprisingly good. It smelled more like banana bread than it tasted. It tasted more like the types of beers I like. I would def drink this again.
I am still trying to catch up on sleep with this crazy month. I find myself in bed falling asleep around 8:30 and I don’t try to stop it. Matt has switched his schedule at work, so he is now working days and we can FINALLY spend time together. We can actually eat dinner like real people!!
So now that this month is coming to an end, wedding planning is going to take full swing. There is still A LOT to do and only FOUR months to do it in. Can you believe it?
What have you been up to?
What is your favorite type of beer? What is the craziest flavor you have tried?
