Greetings from WordPress

Howdy folks,

I've moved over to blogging at WordPress. You can find me and my shenanigans here!

It's not you, it's me.

Hi all,

Thanks for sticking around and I'm sorry for the radio silence. It's never intentional but life happens. I'm working on some other things right now and may not be back here regularly for a while. Don't worry, I'm not breaking up with you before Valentine's Day.

2013 is almost over.

Despite my best efforts, I turned 25
Crafting Easter eggs
Enjoying good music, food, and company at Googa Mooga with free VIP tickets.  Later in the trip, I met Matthew Broderick. 
Reliving Rocky's glory days in Philly.

Me and my wedding date, using as many photo props as possible.

I found myself back in DC, riding bikes in front of the White House with these two patriotic beauts. 

Grandma and Papa celebrated 65 years of being married

Oliver and I dressed up as Charlie Brown and Snoopy for a Halloween party

I attended my very first country concert...and enjoyed it. 

In November, my oldest sister had her first baby the day before Thanksgiving.

In December, I played bingo and had lunch with my grandma's church group consisting of many older women who are avid supporters of both bingo and a modest lunchtime

Oliver's Resolutions: 2014

Oliver's resolutions and goals for 2014:

+ Sniff less...or at least less aggressively

+ Find a healthy balance between eating dog food and trash off the floor

+Be more appreciative of my growing collection of sweaters, jackets, hats, and other accessories

Copy Cat: D&G Glitter Frames

When I was shopping for glasses a few months ago,  I came across something incredible. GOLD GLITTER CATEYE FRAMES! I was overjoyed but in the end didn't like they way they fit my face. 


D&G DG3167 Frames, $179 at Lenscrafters

I ended up buying these in crystal sand (no longer available) but stumbled across more glitter frames from Bonlook in their holiday collection. It's tempting not to go for yet another pair of glasses, especially when they're less than $100.

 "Selfie" frame in caviar, $99 at Bonlook 
(anti-reflective lens included)

When I bought my frames from Bonlook, I was worried that they would look or feel cheap or break on a moment's notice. The day I got them, I was in a wreck where my car rolled. My glasses were nowhere to be found but later we found them in the very back of my car, unscathed. So if you're worried about the quality, don't be! 

Other frames that are tempting me right now:

Chatty Cathy frame in party blue, $99 at Bonlook

Kitty frame in black/clear, $95 (lens included!) at Lookmatic

Maxine frame in beige, $95 (lens included!) at Lookmatic

And just like that...

I'm a teacher! Today was my first day and I'd be lying if I said I didn't come home at 4 pm, have dinner, and take a nap. I forgot how lively high schoolers are! And I forgot what the sky looks like at 5:30 am...totally black. I forgot to take a first day of school pic but just imagine a bright dress and a jean jacket to get a good idea.

After I woke up from my nap, I made a Target run in which I spent more than intended (has that ever NOT happened?) and enjoyed Starbucks for the second time today.

Cheers to surviving!
