Dear Blog, I'm sorry I've been neglecting you

Between the photo challenge being over, reading slower (aka reading at a normal pace) and writing on my other blog more - I haven't been updating as often.  And it seems that I'm not the only one who's noticed so here's what been keeping me busy / sane / happy lately.

  • Christmas decorations.  Seriously.  I love decorating the tree at my house and I especially love seeing the city all lit up when I leave the office.  
  • Spending an entire day with the best friends this past weekend.  What was supposed to be breakfast and a movie (we saw Breaking Dawn.. don't judge us!) turned into an entire afternoon of walking around the mall, shopping and talking.  (If you must know, the movie sucked as expected but it was the best of the bunch.)
  • Cleaning out my closet.  I get some weird satisfaction from throwing out shit I don't need.  And on Sunday, I filled three duffle bags with clothes that I'm going to donate.  
  • I haven't been busy the last few days at work. So I got to relax, blog and hold actual conversations with my gchat buddies.  Goodness, I missed that! 
  • I've been taking my time reading "Falling for Me: How I Hung Curtains, Learned to Cook, Traveled to Seville, and Fell in Love" by Anna David but I'm loving it so far.  Every other sentence makes me laugh.  Can't wait to share my review soon. 
  • Long coffee breaks.  I enjoy picking up my caramel macchiato and taking a walk around the block.  The fresh air always clears my head. 
  • Anticipation of my four day weekend.  It's going to be jam-packed with lots of activities.  

What kept you sane this week?

[Pssst someone please answer so I don't feel like I'm talking to myself!]


with love,
