Hello Autumn!

Hello again~

Let's just pause for a moment and contemplate the fact that tomorrow is October 1st! Holy smokes, right? Or is it just me that seems to feel almost a month behind the times?

So let's see. Life Lately.

 My birthday was here and gone recently. Yay for birthdays which are pretty freakin' awesome in regards to pressies and cake and movie of choice. But I'll admit I had a "How old am I?!!" moment for the first time this year. It was an odd feeling. Like, "Dang! I'm actually a grown up..... And have been for a few years. How have I not really noticed this before?"

No matter. It was a great birthday.

I got great presents, too. When is a present not great, right? But my presents were greater than average.

Like this throw pillow from Treskie. 
The best pillow ever, no?
I am a pillow hog. Especially when I'm watching a movie. I like to be barricaded with pillows. And I need something to squeeze and hid behind during scary parts. :) 

Pearl earrings and a necklace from the Parents! Which I was thrilled about because I've wanted a set for...a jolly long time!  (Not real pearls, in case you were wondering. I'm not a pearl snob. Those pretty cheepies are perfect for me, thank you very much!) I actually got a quite a bit of jewelry for my birthday this year. It made me so happy since I have a sad lack of nice jewelry. And See all the pretty nail polish? I want to try all the colors! 
Katrina got me that CD right there. It is awesome. Just saying. 

Last but not least: DO YOU SEE MY C.A. Shirt!!? It's perfect! *Hums, "When Captain America throws his mighty shieeeeeeld..."*
A while back I mentioned to Mahri that I'd like to learn to use a fountain pen because A.) they're gorgeous and B.) Because they require better handwriting skills which I could definitely use some work on and C.) Because it's way cooler to write with a fountain pen than a ball point pen, okay?
And she got me one! 
As you can see, I promptly made some squiggles and scrawling with it. Then I wrote my name. Twice. To be sure I remember how. And than I gave myself some very good advice. :) 


I sort of feel like this post is coming of a bit gloating-ish. I got stuff! Me! Me! It's all about MEEE!

Right. Moving on quickly. 

This song is so lovely. It's probably my favorite on his new album and since I'm a very emotional person, I get all dewy-eyed every time I hear it. 

I've been making a lot of bouquets at work this last month. And I do mean a LOT. I really enjoy the work and for the most part I'm pretty dang happy making pretty stuff and playing with flowers. Sometimes it's crazy busy and stressful and sometimes flowers die when they shouldn't. But overall, it's pretty okay. 
A couple days ago I made a impressively large bouquet. It was...honken. That's a word. It means large. Add it to your dictionaries. Thanks.
I really love burlap and lace. 

I am looking forward to this next month. October is beautiful and wild and spicy. Full of wind and color and sweaters and warm drinks. 
At least, that's how it is in my mind. October is the epitome of autumn. And chi latte's which, I'm a little ashamed to admit, I'm suddenly a bit addicted to. 
October feels like change, doesn't it?  Not just the change in the season, but a change in life. It's full of possibilities. And chi lattes. :) 

Alright. I think that's enough of me waxing lyrical (or cheesy) and I should pop off and get some other, very uninteresting stuff  done before I get in my pajamas and get cozy for the evening. 

God Bless!

So....I'm back.

Alright. It's been....a long time since I've been around. So let me just start by saying,

So, nope. I haven't been on vacation since the beginning of August. How cool would that have been! No. I just haven't felt like blogging at all.


I got back from my lovely vacation ages ago. It was the best. Lots of wonderful things happened, mostly involving lots of delicious food, tickle fights, movies, pillow fights, really late nights and really late mornings, almost toxic levels of caffeine,...And did I mention delicious food? Oh, and window shopping! Lots and lots of window shopping, which always involves trying on All The Hats! Because ever since we've been friends my friend and I have always tried on All The Hats!

There was this one really cool place that was bursting at the seams with Disney and Pixar stuff mixed with music boxes and Phantom of the Opera memorabilia that made my little heart go all pitter-pattery. I mean check it out! 

Then there was the day at the ocean. Lots of walking and talking and splashing in the waves. And some truly awful selfies.

And the traditional Moonspinners night. Cause I'm still a sucker for that movie.

For whatever reason, once I got back from my trip, I didn't feel like being on my computer at all. I haven't emailed, or blogged or commented on blogs or really even kept up with anyone's blog. I don't know what it was, but I just wasn't in a technology mood. I wasn't feeling it, you copy?

I have been really busy with work, (in a good way, thank goodness!) and I didn't want to spend my free time blogging. I tried quite a few times to do a post. I've gotten as far as opening up my laptop, bringing up the blog page, staring at the screen for 5-10 minutes and snapping it shut with a 'maybe later,'

I've been spending my free time reading, playing with my punching bag,

watching some fun TV shows and trying to get back into some sort of singing/music routine. I need to practice singing again. I just need to schedule my time.
How's all that going for me, you may ask. Let's just say it's a work in progress.

Over this last week I've actually been missing my blog and all you freakin' awesome people out there that, for whatever reason, actually seem to like my blog. 
I miss reading your stuff and letting you know how much I like your stuff. (Honest moment, I'm rubbish at commenting even when I'm following you like a hawk follows a rabbit, and that's something I'm going to work on!)

So, I think I'm ready to be back. 

I have some other, "life lately" type things I want to post about, but I think I'll save that for another night. You can overdo these things, you know. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! It's nice to know you're still there.

God Bless!
