Catching Up

Hey everyone, it’s been a long time. Sorry about that! As usual life got in the way of posting. Don’t worry though, it’s been mostly fun things (along with a few more complicated thing).

Let’s do a quick catch up in pictures, shall we?

Christmas was here (who knew??)

Me and my favorite coworker, Lily. (who has since quit, sad face).

The guys built a tire x-mas tree. Yeah, I work in a “junk yard”. Whatever, we can be creative if we want!

I hosted an ugly sweater contest. Wait.. I mean a ugly/cute sweater contest. Patsy wanted to wear “the adorable sweater” she made in 1991. These were the winners. We had a penguin too?

This is my manager..

And this is my 50+ year old coworkers screensaver.

I’m sorry… I HATE twilight. I honestly think that it is the worst excuse at a novel ever written. (This is obviously my opinion, sorry if I offend anyone). I will say that I have a hard time taking her seriously though. Also please note the jar on the desk. I made all my coworkers goodie jars. (and had the intention of writing about it, silly me ;-)). The jars included Christmas socks, lotion, hand sanitizer, lip gloss nail polish and mini lint rollers (from Lorelei).

I had a super blessed Christmas over at my parent’s home.

J’s wrapping/stickers were the best 🙂 He also got me the adorable apron that I am wearing in the previous set of pictures.

D and I got each other the same teacup set… bff much? Or maybe we just shop together too often?

I ran out of time to decorate, so mini tree it was. Bonus points to whoever can spot the reindeer imposter..

Toby cat helped me wrap gifts

I FINALLY got the floating shelves hung (only six months in the making).

All of the snowmen and Santa/the reindeer are from my Grandma’s Christmas decoration collection

Lori got a hold of this Santa (dated 1969). Once I finished crying I dubbed him Confucius Santa. His poor beard will never be the same.

Hand painted goblets and k-cup holder from another bestie. How lucky am I??

Table decorations. The deer are from 1967. How awesome is that??

Cards from friends and family. Flowers from my love for our 9th anniversary.

Redecorated our front door wreath

And to top off an awesome holiday season? I got to spend an entire week with my best friend ever (really my sister). We got started on wedding planning (for real) so I will have some posts up on that soon.

  1. I love all the pics! And OMG I SO AGREE WITH YOU ABOUT TWILIGHT! Back when they first came out my sister was reading them, and as an unabashed lover of YA lit I picked one up and couldn’t go past 5 pages without throwing it down in disgust. The books worse are the 50 Shades series, and those started out as Twilight fan fiction so it’s all connected. 😉

    • You were so smart for throwing it down! Once I start something I “have” to finish it… I want that time in my life back hahaha. 50 Shades was related to Twilight?!? What?! I’d totally believe it based off what I have heard about them.. I absolutely refuse to read them though. haha!
