Random Musings (Monday Edition)

1. Friday we had a snow day - yayaya! The perks of working at a school. =)
2. Saturday night we had some friends over for a game night and I don't think I've laughed that hard in a long time.
3. We are not moving anymore. It's kind of a long story, but it's really for the best.
4. I am all unpacked and reorganized.
5. We decided to decorate for Christmas and I love it.
6. I have all the Christmas shopping done, wrapped and under the tree. This was done a week before Christmas - new record!
7. Yesterday we played cards with my family for five hours straight, it was awesome!
8. Church rocked my socks off last night and despite a hard week, I have peace and joy that only comes from having faith and trust in my Savior.
9. I really really really want a dog right now. I have always wanted one, but it's getting bad how much I want one.
10. I am so excited to have a week and a half off work! I plan to go to the gym for at least an hour every. single. day.
11. Garth and I celebrated our ten months at this delish Mediterrean restaurant.
12. My work is treating us to Bahama Breeze for lunch today - SO EXCITED. It's sad how excited I get about food sometimes, really.
13. Garth and I are still undecided about New Year's Eve. We might treat ourselves to this gorgeous hotel we stayed at for our wedding night. What are your plans?
14. I had thai food twice this weekend and it was amazing.
15. It is 10 degrees with a wind chill that makes it feel like negative ten. I want to move down south.
16. With Love from New Orleans tagged me to go to my pictures and choose the fourth folder and fourth picture in that folder. If you have not checked out her blog, please do! I love her! She is so sweet and we are so alike! Here is my picture, dancing at a wedding this past summer:

I tag YOU.

I am so jealous of your snow day. The entire town was shut down except for the university I worke at, cause they don't close down for anything.

I'm pretty sure even in the apocalypse they'd maybe cancel night classes. Maybe.

Pleasant Drive said...

What a great weekend! I'm glad that you guys get to enjoy a little Christmas cheer in your apt this week. Now, about the dog. Think long and hard about how difficult it is to go out of town when you have a dog. We have 3 dogs, and they keep us tied down. I love them, but boy, they are a LOT of work! We didn't really consider that beforehand.

With Love from New Orleans said...

Aww!!Thanks Lindsey! I agree.. we are definitely blogging twins. I am sorry about the whole moving situation.. what a least you are happy and that is all that matters!

I loveee working for the university.. I have two work today and tomorrow.. but after that I don't have to go back until the 5th.. amazing!

OO I so hope Garth gets you a puppy.. what would you name it? What kind do you want?

Anonymous said...

Ok I am so jealous that you work at a school and have snow days! Why wasn't I a teacher?!?!?!

Second, it is freezing cold here too. Last night and today have just been down right bitter - the wind is just terrible.

And third, I really wish I had the time off you do around the holidays! Work out a little for me too ok?!?!?!

Kari Beth said...

Love the random musings! So fun! We played dominos with my family for 4 hours straight last night! I love family game nights!

bekah said...

our new years plans? We are moving, and staying home. Well...the new home! Im actually pretty stoked about it, even though it will kind of be like camping.

SassyEngineer said...

I wish I got snow days. I live so close to work that I was basically told I would have to come in because if it snowed everyone else would be stuck! Oh well. I hope you have an awesome Christmas!!!!!

The Pink Chick said...

So jealous of your snow! I'm a Georgia girl, so snow is a very rare thing around here!

Do you think you will get a puppy any time soon? If so, you have to post a ton of pictures! I have 3 dogs, but I wish I had a dozen! I love my puppies so much!

With Love from New Orleans said...

I SOOOOOOO hope you get one!! We have a beagle mix. I really want a puggle.. a perfect blend!

SassyEngineer said...

I tagged you for something different :)

The Ballard's said...

So jealous of your snow day! Puppies are fun but a lot of work. I wanted one so bad and I love him he's just more trouble than a kid would be...I think.

jenkins_k08 said...

Shanny said...

Glad you unpacked, reorganized and decorated just in time for Christmas, Yay!
Enjoy your week and half and let us know what you decide to do for New Years Eve. =)

RachB said...

I LOVE your blog!! So fun!! They just put me on bed rest today so this is perfect timing for a new blog to become obsessed with!! I can't wait to read your past blogs too! Ha.

Following Him said...

Love your for what I am doing for New Years...I am flying from Boston to DFW and going to bed early. I will be at a conference from the 27th-31st. Have a wonderful Christmas!

Mrs. S. said...

I am glad to hear that you are able to decorate for Christmas. If you are anything like me, you need SOMETHING up that is Christmas-y. Have a wonderful Christmas!

jlc said...

Cute cute cute.

And ummmm yeah, I def see a pooch in your future. :)

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

I left you an award on my blog!

Megan said...

Yay for snow days!! I hope you all can get a dog soon!!..Sadie has been so much fun for us to have, but she is a lot of work..and we can't take long day trips without making sure someone can take her out. You should totally treat yourselves to a nice hotel for New Years..that sounds fun!!

Jennifer said...

I love your random musings. We are still trying to decide what to do for New Year's. All of our friends have babies now, so no one wants to go out. :(

Lump said...

you two are way cute!! and I love game nights!! :)

Rachel said...

Ok I read today's post first and said good luck on the move; now I read your not moving...I guess I should start with the later posts first LOL

I am sure you made the right decision for you and your family.

Sooo glad to hear your all decorated!

Jules said...

Sounds like a wonderful and productive weekend! That is great that you decorated and I can understand wanting a dog.
We're still undecided for NYE too. I like the hotel idea!
