Ringing in the New Year

Mr. B and I are spending tonight with some friends in the city. I'm super excited because it's basically a big wedding…lots of food, lots of drinks, and lots of dancing.

I get to wear a sexy dress and some hot shoes, so I can't wait!

What are your plans tonight?

Happy New Year!!

What I got for Christmas

I felt a little silly making a Christmas list for my family, being that I don't live with my parents, I've been out of school for quite some time and I'm married. Buy my family insisted and they wanted a list from Mr.B too.

My list consisted of:
-work socks
-a wine decanter
-a stainless steel pan
-iTunes giftcards
-earbuds for my iPod

Nothing that I really needed, but things I was going to buy for myself anyway. I got all of it and then some…my family (and husband) are awesome! I only had to return one thing and it wasn't because I didn't like it, it was because it had a hole in the arm. Not too shabby for not telling anyone where to buy things or what size.

What was on your wish list?

What does this look like?

Hmm....which one of these things is not like the other? I really don't think that's appropriate for work ;-)

Catching up

Due to today's snow, I feel like I've really been able to catch up on alot of things. I cleaned out my DVR queue, which had some pretty old shows in there. I fixed the hem on two of my work pants that had been sitting, balled up, in the bottom of my closet. I finally made some Christmas cookies. I love the Nestle swirled milk and white chocolate chips. They.are.amazing!!!! And always a hit at parties. I also hung up some clothes that had been laying around as well as some stray Christmas cards that needed to go up on our front door.

Some updates on life in general:
-I passed my class for the semester...thank god!
-Mr. B and I are planning on putting our house on the market in the spring (as long as everything else goes as planned)
-I recently got a bonus, which had great timing (Merry Christmas!)
-And the BIG news....I got a raise!!!!!! Believe me, we are definitely counting our blessings. I know that alot of people are struggling and losing their jobs; we are so lucky to work at a place where they are still promoting and hiring people.

Tonight was supposed to be Mr. B's family Christmas dinner, but due to the beautiful and plentiful snow, it was postponed until next Sunday. I was totally bummed because I was going to make some pumpkin cheesecake, but I'm kind of glad after seeing how bad the roads were today. We made it to the gym before they closed at 1pm and coming home was treacherous and slow.

Since the snow is supposed to continue tomorrow, I'll most likely give the house a good cleaning and work on a baby blanket I've been messing with since October. I made a super cute skinny, striped scarf for a friend's birthday present, but of course, I didn't get to take any pictures before I wrapped it up. I liked it so much, I might just make one for myself :)

My eye

Recently my blog posts and facebook status updates have involved my right eye. For the past couple of week it's been acting up and looking like it had pink eye.

Last time I went to the eye doctor she told me I had allergy bumps underneath my eyelid and that I needed to use this eyedrop stuff to fix it. Well that worked, but ever since the seasons changed at least once a week I was waking up with a swollen, red right eye. This happened again this past Thursday and I had enough. I had an emergency appointment to have the Dr. look at my eye again. My tickly little eye decided to clear itself up just in time foe my appointment Friday, but te bumps were still there and my story was convincing enough that she prescribed me yet another eye drop. Two, in fact.

I have to use on of them 4 times a day until tomorrow and then I have to use a different one 2 times a day until the problem stops. Now, if I'm supposed to use the we drop everyday how will I know when to stop using it?? This is much like my allergy mess…I've attempted to go off it for a few days and when I do I always get a sinus infection. It's quite lovely.

I asked my doctor why all of a sudden are my eyes rebelling and her answer was that your body changes every once in awhile. And then she added that I'm going to experience so many more changes as I get older…gee, thanks. That's just what I wanted to hear!!

Off to put my second drops of the day in!!!

Being Away

In my old job I used to travel at least twice a month. I absolutely hated it. I mean, at first it was great…you get to see new places and travel on your employer's dime, but then the little things started to get to me. Like not being home to see friends that were in town and missing birthdays. Not to mention eating out every single meal and just being completely exhausted.

My new job doesn't really have me traveling much, but when I do it's usually local or to a fun place (like Spain!). This week I had to make a quick jaunt down to DC to go to some meetings. The trip hasn't been bad so far…I got to see one of my cousins that lives here, so that was a plus, but I can't help but think I'm so happy I don't do this for a living. I'm a creature of habit and I miss my boring same ol' same ol' life. I miss my husband and going to the gym…I miss being in my own bed and eating the same food I always eat. I'm boring, but I'm ok with that.
