It's Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas!

(This post was intended for Monday, but I just forgetting to hit Post!)

I am so excited for it to be December and the Christmas season!
It is my favorite time of year! 

This long 4 day weekend was amazing!
I ate way too much, as I'm sure most of you did.
But this is the only picture I took. 
I spent my time with family and my phone and camera were put away.

After dinner, Zach and I met up with our friend and her mom and I went Black Friday (or Thursday, in this case) shopping for the first time in my life. I've always been on the selling side of things, so being on the consumer side was interesting.
Waiting in line to get free t-shirts!
It was fun, and we didn't go out early enough to wait in line, except when checking out. 

Friday night was my dad's family thanksgiving and I again ate way too much.
I didn't take any pictures, but later that night I found this selfie my brother took with my phone.

The rest of the weekend was pretty lazy, except Sunday we decorated for Chistmas.
1. Our beautiful tree
2. Our first couple ornament
3. Some of my favorite ornaments, 2 of which are part of different Hallmark series
4. Our tree Angel and snowman tealight holder
5. One of our wall shelves with 2 shelves decorated
6. Holiday beanie babies
7. My Hallmark carousel and more beanie babies
8. Our stockings 

I am so excited to be able to celebrate Christmas this year with my husband!
Our first married Christmas and being in our own place!
It's going to be a great season!

New Look?

I figured it was about time for a new look. 
I would love to say Erin did this handy work, but a gorgeous blog design is not currently in the budget, so I found some cute free designs to keep my blog looking good until I can hire Erin. 

What do you think? 
I like it.
Even Zach likes it!

On another note, I'm pretty excited for this 3 day work week.
I don't think I've ever had one and gotten paid for the 2 days off without taking vacation.

And what better way to spend those two days off work then spending time with family and eating your weight in delicious food?
Zach and I have a Thanksgiving with my mom's family on Thursday, and one with my dad's family on Friday. It's going to be a fun two days.

Until next time...

Well apparently, I'm not very good at blogging as of late. 
And I'm sure I sound like a broken record when I say this.
I mean, I've only blogged twice (here and here) in the last 3 months. 
I haven't even told you about my new job!

Things have got to change around here. Right? Yeah.

For right now, until I can get on a good schedule, my goal is to blog at least once a week. 
Even if it's just a funny meme or quote or something.
I don't want to go months without blogging again, if I can help it.

For today, here's a throwback Thursday to 6 and a half years ago.
We were babes!
Yesterday marked 6 and a half years since Zach asked me to be his girlfriend.
It's been a wonderful 6 and a half years together and I'm so glad I get to call him mine!

Happy Thursday!!

A Little Update.

So I may or may not have just realized I haven't posted in 2 months. 

And I've been married for almost 4 months and haven't said much about it either. 

I'm batting a 1000 with this little blog here. 

My hope is to start posting again within the week and telling you all about my new job, the wedding, and life in general. 

Until then, enjoy this selfie of me rooting on the Bengals at work in my orange and black. (Even if they don't play until 8:30 tonight.)

An Evening Post

A week from today I start my new job and I cannot wait! 
I can't wait to be able to tell you that I had a great weekend, instead of telling you I worked all weekend.
I can't wait to have the same days off as my husband, and be able to sleep in with him.
I can't wait to have a set schedule and plan things.
I can't wait to have a consistent paycheck (I'll be salary).
I can't wait to meal plan.
I can't wait to set aside a weekly time slot to plan my grocery trips.
I can't wait to know several weeks in advance if I'll be able to say yes or no to something.
I can't wait to be able to set up a blogging schedule.
I can't wait for a lot of things.
I just can't wait!

This Sunday is family dinner and I'm so glad I'll be able to enjoy it without stressing about work.
The last few weeks at work have been awful and I don't see this week getting any better, so once Saturday night comes, I'll breathe a huge sigh of relief and enjoy my Sunday.

And once Monday morning comes I just need to...
