For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. -Isaiah 9:6 Merry Christmas!! May you get to spend this wonderful day celebrating with family and friends.

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year....


Err it's been almost a month since my last super quick post so I thought I would do a massive picture post on what I have been up to.
Minus the sucky weather this time of year-that we happen to be getting this weekend this time of the year isn't too shabby.
Fun holiday lights, decorations, food, festive sweaters, activities, sports on tv, time spent with loved ones, and the holiday cheer is so much fun. :) Personally fall is my absolute favorite, but the holiday season is pretty great itself.
I'm all done with my shopping for gifts at this point in time and hopefully everyone loves what they get!

Nervous to see what Andrew got me. It's in a small bag. "Not jewelry." He doesn't do gift cards-too impersonal he says. It's not on my list. He went shopping with his mom and sister....and has been using certain emojis. Several people have asked if I am getting a certain thing. So it makes a girl wonder....hmmm. The item rhymes with thing. ;) He keeps insisting it's not, but it truly makes me wonder what's in the tiny bag.....trying oh so hard to not get my hopes up.

I'm ready to have the holidays off from work and possibly get out early from work on cmas and Nye!

Have a few celebrations with my family and then one with Andrew's family. Should be fun times ahead.

What are your plans for the holidays? Any special traditions?

Tree at a casino.

Andrew and I put this together. Choo Choo

Festive reindeer for my office.

Got this as a gift from a co-worker

New bag!

Target steals. 

Festive guy at a local bar.

Vera steals. Yay for half price and FREE items.

New phone case.

New shirt the chapter got! I couldn't resist.

Couldn't resist this shirt either....

Holiday popcorn!


Greatest snow man in all the land. This guy also sits at my office.

Any the pic of my friends and I didn't upload. :(

Happy Thanksgiving. May you be blessed to spend it with loved ones and have your belly be full. Count your blessings, life is short.
Prayers for those who are struggling with any aspect of life.
Isn't the kitty cute? :)

Fall is My Favorite


Not sure if any of you watch this show, but I started watching Survivor last season with Andrew and each week we try and watch the latest episode together. This season on the show loved ones are playing with/against each other. I believe this show is on it's 14th season? If you haven't been watching I recommend you tune in. :)

Managed to get a few pictures while the leaves in the neighborhood were pretty and still on the trees.
This one is across the street from our house and it always has the brightest leaves.....not shown here, but wish y'all could see them in person.

Halloween has passed, but a lady at work made some pumpkin chocolate chip cookies the other week at work so I took a gander at it. They actually turned out pretty well, considering it was my first time ever baking something pumpkin. 
My co-workers literally ate them up. HA. 
I figured since Thanksgiving is coming up I might make them again for when we celebrate with family.

I LOVE FALL. It's my absolute favorite time of the year.

Some of the best shows are on. The outdoor activities are SO fun. 
Football and basketball games are being played. It's the perfect time for a fire pit night with friends. :)

What is your favorite season and what about it?
Have you ever made something with pumpkin besides a pie?

Two-Way Street?


Not sure about you, but I've always thought friendship was supposed to be a two-way street. If one person stops making an effort, the friendship turns into just being acquaintances or all contact is lost.
Sometimes people go down different paths in life, and relationships naturally end, other times life brings you back together, and the friendship picks up where it left off, like nothing has changed.
In other situations one person tries to stay in touch for a while, and when no response is given back....that person trying to maintain the friendship gives up all hope.

Why do people make things so frustrating? Why are people so rude? A simple response is appreciated and considered nice.....
Yes it stings a bit when someone you no longer talk to for whatever reasons delete you on FB...first world problems?
But when you're still "friends" on FB, instagram, twitter, used to double date, and are considered "sisters" it stings a little extra hard when they post on social media but don't have the time to text you back/fb chat you.
Maybe they changed their number? Doubt it.

I give up. Yes it hurts a little to slowly have your "good friends/friends" list dwindle over time....
Guess that means I need to get out more and meet new people? Get more involved in my free time?

Anyone else have this problem with people not following the two-way street unspoken rule when it comes to friendship?

What I've Been Up To....

I've been MIA for a few weeks. Nothing too exciting going on around in my neck of the woods. Just trying to enjoy the lovely fall weather, the warmer days that is...
When you're stuck working 40 hours a week in an office plus 5 for lunch each week life doesn't get too exciting, except on the weekends.
By no means do I consider myself a true blogger-I don't post daily, I don't do ootd's any more, I don't have social media pages dedicated to the blog, I don't take artist pics of my daily happenings. I'm kinda boring, so a rare update is what you'll get if your interested in my happenings that is.
This blog is mostly to read about other's lives.
Anyone else feel that way?
So here's a re-cap of what I've been up to.
Proud alumna of the Xi Phi myself a half zip when the chapter ordered them. :)
Love me some chevron.

Hit up power and light with friends for a happy hour.

Saw the mums at the cider mill. 
If you're ever in the area: Louisburg Cider Mill has THE BEST cider donuts around!
The pumpkin patch, hayride, corn maze, etc are pretty awesome as well. :)
Makes me want to make another trip to it, just for the donuts.

My brother came home from college one weekend, we went bowling,mini golfing, and to IHOP with one of his friends and Andrew.

The Greater KC Chapter of AFSP held their annual community walk. Just shy of $50,000 raised!
Memorial balloons rising up to the heavens. 

Sporting my newest KC Chiefs shirt! 7-0 baby!
Can't touch this...nuh nuh nuh nuh...

Andrew and I at the pumpkin patch part of the Cider Mill.
It was a great day for a quad date with friends. :)

I'll try to get better at updating this blog. Sorry for being MIA.
What have you been up to lately?
Anything you'd like to see on the blog?
