I'd like some new glasses this Christmas. I have not been a "very good girl." I figured you'd appreciate the honesty and spoil me in light of encouraging good behavior. (Though, to stay congruent, I will continue to be a bad girl [does it count if it's in a good way?].) I will provide cookies, milk, a flask of Crown Royal and a Playboy in exchange.
Bros before ho ho hos,
I came home early. More specifically, I came home on the 31st of January instead of the 28th of February. It's a bit of a difference, I know. I felt, for several reasons, I had to come home. It's good being home. I hid nothing when it came to talks of how much I missed everyone, so my desire to be home veins from that (partially).
I slept super late today. Today was pretty basic - slept, got online, chatted, went for Olive Garden, came home, watched Hot and Fluffy with Chris, Chris went to his room to *ahem* "go to bed" and I started my workout. It was pretty basic, but it lasted for about 40 minutes. I'm going to work on flattening my stomach and strengthening my arms/legs, so that was my focus tonight. Tomorrow when I'm feeling adventurous I'll tinker with the treadmill and see if I can't it going.
It's a little after 4:30am as I begin to write this blog. Sleeplessness has overtaken me and my mind is restless. Moonlight is slipping through the blinds and cascading small lines of light upon the carpeting, striping the living room with a soft glow.
Hello, dear readers. I'm safely in Texas after many hours of traveling. So much has happened even though I'm only in the beginning of my journey. I've met Chris' father, brother and sister-in-law. I've also met his best friend Jacob, Jacob's wife Liz and their adorable baby son, Zen. I had the privilege of eating absolutely amazing Mexican food at a very small restaurant in Quinlan. Chris even humored me and stopped by T.G.I.Friday's before we headed home, where Vanilla Bean Cheesecake was purchased and promptly devoured. (It's my favorite desert. Nothing will ever top it. It's like an orgasm for my mouth. [Note: "FOR my mouth", not "in my mouth". Easy, boys.])
I apologize for my extended absence from the website. I have no excuse other than laziness and being distracted by shiny objects.
Well, it turns out that I've developed acute Laryngitis and a friendly helping of Strep Throat. I can't taste or smell anything. My eyes are watering constantly and I've been blowing my nose more than I ever have in my life. It hurts to swallow liquids. I'm cold all the time, even if I have multiple layers of clothing on and a few blankets piled on top of me.
Halloween was a blast. I wore a French Maid costume. I know what you're thinking: OMGSHORT?! Yes. Yes it was. I looked fantastic, if I do say so myself. Brett, Erica, Travis and I went to McCulliffe's first and had a few drinks (including a very delicious Pumpkin Spice shot) and then went back to Erica's for the house party. There was lots of alcohol. I got sick. >.> Thankfully a big strong Marine carried me upstairs and put me in the guest room so I could pass out. The night was tame but very fun. One of my best Halloweens yet. :)
My birthday this year was mighty fun. Spent time with family (seeing my extended family from Virginia was wonderful) and friends, had a lot of out-of-state visitors. Blowing up the castle cakes with firecrackers was probably my favorite part of the evening. (Yes. You heard me right. We baked two cakes in a castle-shaped cake pan, took them outside, stuffed firecrackers in them, lit the fuse and ran. It was my Mother's idea for my nephew several years ago and I just loved it, so I wanted to do it this year.)
I made a new piece in Photoshop today. I'm quite happy with the results. In my first attempt I nearly gave up because I couldn't figure out how to create the effect that I wanted, but upon perusing the internet I found inspiration.
