Hello bloggy woggy, sorry I’ve neglected you.
Can you believe the holiday season is practically upon us? I don’t know about you, but it drives me insane when I see Christmas decorations out before Halloween. The retail industry has taken some of the magic out of the holiday by making it all about gift buying. Before you know it, Christmas trees will start popping up in July. Anyways…
Here are some random thoughts and ramblings.
Halloween has come and gone. JD and I threw another successful Spooktacular. I can’t believe this was our fourth one! T and I went with a 20s theme for our costumes and dressed as a flapper and a gangster. I’m not going to lie, but I thought we looked really cute!
My 28th birthday is on Monday, and I will officially be in the back end of my late 20s. It’s crazy to think about. I was flipping through a photo album last night and stumbled across some old photos of Little S and me, and we were so young. Then I found ones of T and me, and we were such babies. It’s funny to see how much or little you’ve changed over the years.
In honor of my birthday, T and I are making a weekend trip to Asheville. I am really excited. We will see leaves, stay in a cute B&B, go out to a nice dinner, and just have an all around amazing time. I. Can’t. Wait.
Since I will be out of town on my actual birthday, I’m getting together with some family and friends on Friday night for a birthday dinner. We are going to Abattoir, and I can’t wait to check out the menu. I’ve heard a lot of really great things about the restaurant, and T and I have been meaning to go for quite some time now. I’m glad we’ll finally get to experience it with friends and family.
I swear I’m not a total birthday whore, but we are also going to see Cirque du Soleil’s Ovo next Tuesday. Every review I’ve read about it says that the show is amazing. I love that Cirque always happens to make a stop in Atlanta right around my birthday. It’s so convenient.
After three years of growing out my hair, I finally decided to cut it shorter again. I like the convenience of having long hair and being able to pull it up easily, but I like the way short, layered hair looks on me. My hair is just too fine and thin for it to look stunning long.
And finally…you all know how much I like to cook. Well, the other night I was chopping up some parsley for the spaghetti we were making and thinking to myself, I have pretty awesome knife skills, when the worst possible thing happened. I sliced into my finger, pretty badly. I cut into the side of my finger, then sliced through the nail. Yeah, I know. It was not pretty. My poor left hand and arm keeps bearing the brunt of my knife-related injuries. The worst part of it all, I had just honed the blade, so it was extra sharp. My poor little finger. So much for getting a birthday manicure this weekend…
