Five Things

1. I have this thing where whenever I am taking photos for blog purposes I put my hand up by my ear. It is the most illogical thing however I don't plan on stopping anytime soon as it is the only "natural" pose I have. Because I always cup my ear, you know... 

2. I made the stupid decision to drive by our old house today. Here's the thing -- while I love the improvements we have made to our new house, this place still doesn't feel quite like home. And so I cry a lot about that. This could very well be because I am a woman and crying always sounds like the next best thing to do, but I truly didn't think I would struggle with this whole moving thing so much. The good news is however that I now know how to make my husband very unhappy with me [because before I hadn't had a clue...]. All I have to do is ask him while he is in the middle of painting a door if he thinks we should put our house up for sale. His answer in case you are wondering is absolutely not with maybe a few other words in between. 

3. In approximately one week from today I will be at the happiest place on earth -- Disney. I don't know who is more excited, my four year old niece or me. I have a pretty good feeling it's me. 

4. IT SNOWED TODAY LIKE CATS AND DOGS. Except it was actually just snowflakes that fell from the sky and not living animals because that would be really disturbing and probably damage a lot of cars. 

My husband knows that I make a really big deal about the first snow so he called me out to the living room this morning while I was in the middle of putting my make-up on, which led me to believe that Maggie pooped and he was showing it to me so I could clean it up, BUT NO. He simply grabbed my hand and told me to look out the window. This may have resulted in a few dancing spins and dips and exclamations of "WE DID IT!" [it's just my natural go-to cheer], along with Dunkin' Donuts munchkins and hot chocolate. And then when life couldn't get any better, I got to work and my co-worker decorated my desk with inside snow and lights which meant life in fact could get better.

Long story short, the first day of snowfall makes for the best day in all of Winter and ever. 

5. On that note, it's time to go decorate my house for Christmas...fa la la la, la la la la



  1. I agree about the first snow fall and the 2nd and the 3rd, 4th, 5th...all of them. I love the snow and I'm so jealous right now. Soak it and enjoy :))

  2. Yay! I am so excited to decorate for Christmas too! It is SO cold in Texas, and it might even SNOW this weekend. I'll be screaming "we did it" too! Wishing you a fabulous weekend. oxox, Amanda

  3. Your co-workers are SO sweet!!! And that hubby moment made me say "AWWW." I love snow, I wish we got more here in Alabama but low and behold it mini flurried here today!!! EEE!

  4. I think it's normal to feel attachment to houses. It's going to take a while for the new one to feel like home, but it will.

    That picture of the snow though is beautiful. I'll come over and curl myself up now if you don't mind.

  5. Wow that photo is beautiful!!! We just moved to NC from AZ and I am crossing my fingers that we get a little bit of snow this year!!

    I totally know what you mean about feeling homesick from your last house. I randomly look at photos online of our old house that we sold in AZ and get teary-eyed. That was our first house - the house where we brought our two little girls home in and the house we loved so much!

    But...your new house is BEAUTIFUL and will be home to so many new and wonderful memories! Especially since you are remodeling it yourselves!

  6. I'm glad that I'm not the only one ready to decorate for Christmas!!! Yay!!!

  7. First snow - exciting!! There's an extreme light chance of snow flurries here on Sunday (which is my birthday & the fact that it is so cold already is insane because just a few years ago I was wearing shorts on my birthday!!) Until it snows I will live through you northern girls!!

  8. Inside snow lights? That is amazing!

  9. That's cute how they decorated you desk!

  10. Wow you have the best coworkers! I confess that my tree is up - no ornaments yet, but soon :)

  11. I still mourn the house I left when I was 5. It's normal. For what it's worth I show everyone I know insta pics of your new house all the time....

  12. Moving is hard. Snow makes it better.

  13. We were renting the house we lived in before we moved into the house we just bought, and I cried giant crocodile tears because I missed our old house so much even though it really wasn't ours. I It's been about four months since the move, and I still find myself missing little things here and there. But, I am happy with where we are at now and I just have to remind myself of the good things that came from moving. Also, yay for first snow!

  14. You totally rock the cupping ear pose! Totally love those booties, by the way.
    It doesn't snow here in California but I'm also excited to begin decorating my place!

  15. I really hope your "WE DID IT" cheer comes with Elle Woods style squealing!

  16. That's so sweet that your co-worker decorated your desk - now I'm having office christmas decor jealously ;) haha And before you know it your new house will be filled with new memories and will start to feel like a home! :) xo, D

  17. We've already got our Christmas decorations up in the house, just in time for Thanksgiving! Love seeing what you've done with your beautiful home!


  18. I SMELL SNOW! Here's to your new home and new memories and lots of snow angels along the way :)


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
