Out with the old, in with the new10:55 AM
December is an exciting time for all of us - the holidays coming, everyone is putting up their tree, decorating their house, many will be on vacation soon and it's my birthday month!
But first, let's talk about this new blog. Thanks to all who updated your feed with my new URL. Even if you didn't, I'll stalk you anyway. I still have a few things to figure out, had to revert to a standard template because custom templates are total fuckery and I can't find the time to edit code to my preference. Why must custom templates screw with your image sizes and I have to edit CSS to over-write them? I'm already missing my paid Typepad account.
Anyway, let's kick off this new blog with a typical "what's been going on 'round here" post:
+ I've been crocheting lots of things, namely (Christmas) gifts.
(unfinished) Spiderman hat for my friend's 3yr old son.
+ The library just loves messing with my routine - it sent me a bunch of books all at once when I've been busy/distracted with other things and haven't felt like reading. I've been waiting for Dark Matter for months but when I saw that there were 41 people in line, I decided to force myself to sit down and start reading instead of returning it and having to wait another eleventy billion months. Glad I started reading it because it's SO GOOD.
+ Back to Treat yo'self birthday month...We start with a fancy dinner with my girlfriends on Sunday, followed by a luxurious facial next week Saturday. The following week is a half day at the spa and the week after that is a wonderful TWO HOUR massage.
+ It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas. The tree is up, outdoor lights are up as are our blow-up thingys. Kayla makes it a point to give Santa a high-five every time we come home.
+ Totally looking forward to our Christmas breakfast tradition where hubby makes us a feast. This year I've asked him to try this recipe: baked cheesy hash browns #getinmybelly.
+ when you get a free Starbucks drink, you get the biggest one your stomach can handle and fuck calories because free calories don't count. I thoroughly enjoyed my first Peppermint Mocha to welcome in December.
+ How true is this?
+ Did you see the guy who punched a Kangaroo to save/free his dog from the clutches of that ripped 'roo? And the Kangaroo's expression after the punch like, "OHNOYOUDIDN'T, BRO".
+ Esquire did a Tom Hardy Photoshoot and interview. You're welcome.
