Random Musings

 

I feel I may be emerging back into the blogging world slowly but surely. My Google Reader is under 300 new posts and I feel like I’ve actually caught up in your lives. Maybe it’s weird but I don’t feel I should ever post unless I know what is going on with you, my readers.

This post is going to be full of randomness:

1. I went to the Southwest as promised and it was beautiful. I loved the Sun shining and my partner, L,  is absolutely hilarious. L and I oddly went to the same Junior High, High School, and College all the while only knowing of each other. She is great and we had so many laughs during this business trip. We also are a great working team, I’m so blessed to have her as a wing woman.

2. I got sick on the flight home and currently sound like an 80 year old woman who happens to spend all her free time in a smokey bowling alley. I’ve been on meds but regardless it has made me so tired.

3. I just bought a hotel room on Priceline.com and was shocked. I was able to get a 4 star Chicago hotel room for $85. Handsome and I are going to do that instead of heading back to the suburbs come my work party.

4. Handsome got a job! I am so so proud of him. He impressed his company and he’s going to defy everyone’s expectations. His worth ethic is unmatchable and I’m so relieved and excited he gets to demonstrate this now to a company!

5. I’m still in  the search for a roommate. I’m picky but only because there are a lot of randoms out there and I want a great match. If you know any sweet gals moving to Chicago, let me know!

6. I find it so hard to shop for men, ie. dad, bob. Seriously, boys are so much harder to shop for. I use sites like gifts.com and they really help by suggesting gifts for each personality type. It’s still so hard though.

7. I rented a dress from Rent The Runway and am so so excited. I got it for my work party and have known many ladies who have had such success on this site. They send you a second size in case your estimated dress size is wrong and have free return shipping. They also have only the best dresses, including dresses that I’ve seen all celebrities like C. Underwood. I’ll be donning a Robert Rodriguez dress for my work party, can’t wait to share it with you pretties. I so strongly  encourage you to check them out if you haven’t, I’ll even refer you: Rent The Runway

8. There is a product available called Spray on Snow. I read about it in my Midwestern Living magazine and am astonished. I need me a bottle of this special magic. You can literally decorate your holiday decorations with fake snow! I can’t make this stuff up people.

9. I love Holiday parties be it cookie making parties, Ugly Christmas Sweater parties, and fancy shmancy parties. I’m thinking of having a cookie making party. Last year I literally baked about 200 cookies for both Handsome and my families.

10. Would anyone be interested in doing a Christmas Ornament Exchange? This could be for both twitter and blog friends. Let me know, I’ve seen so many adorable ornaments at Hallmark and though this could be a fun way to get to know one another.

I’ve missed every single one of you lovely readers.

  1. Isn't is a huge accomplishment to get that google reader number down!?

    I can't wait to see your dress rental! Sounds like a great idea...

    I'd love to do an ornament exchange. Just loving those exchanges and swaps this holiday season...
