I knew it had been awhile since I had blogged, but didn't realize how long until today, a little over a month since my last post, sheesh, where has the time gone?! Well..I'll tell you where the time has gone - it's called getting a new job, traveling every weekend, birthdays, Holidays, etc. etc. Finally feeling adjusted to the new gig, and feeling like my life is getting a little bit back to normal. Which means my friends, I have a lot to fill you in on.
I started a new job about a month ago, and it's been a whirlwind since, it's all for the better, but even though change is good, it is also sometimes extremely hard. You just get in this nice comfort zone, and the thought of leaving that and starting over again can just give you a big ole' knot in your stomach. I've been with the same company for the last four years and had made wonderful friends there, but I was ready for the next step in my career path so it was time move on. I put a tremendous amount of pressure on myself, pressure to always strive for more...so far the decision has been a good one and time will tell.
Patty boy's 28th Birthday was last Sunday, so after a great Thanksgiving we celebrated his birthday by doing a little shopping, brunch, and taking it easy. We also got the Christmas lights up, tree, and all decor up, LOVE this time of year! Christmas shopping is about 99% done, which makes for a happy girl. I love to have wrapped presents under the tree so I'll get to enjoy it all for a few more weeks. We got a group of our friends together yesterday for some more celebrating and had a great time. I got him an iPad for his b-day and that thing has not left his side, I must say it is pretty cool, it is great for using in the kitchen when cooking..which I did quite a bit of this weekend..which brings me to my next point.
My Aunt Tammy has a Christmas Cookie/Candy Exchange party every year and today was her 6th annual party. I was baking away last night and created the most amazing, scrumptious, dessert ever!
|I found a recipe for Brownie Covered Oreos, but put my own little twist on them and put Peanut Butter Cookie Dough on the bottom, it was definitely a good decision- yum!|
I'm so very much looking forward to the next month. Tomorrow I'm going to a Women's Seminar - Woven with a few good friends, very much looking forward to this. We have a Christmas Dinner Party planned with friends coming up, looking forward to Christmas lights, more fun times with friends and family, and hoping this beautiful weather will keep up. I've heard several people say they are ready for it to get cold, nope not me, I'd be totally content if it never got any colder than this! Lovin' it!
Here's to family, friends, and remembering what this time of year is all about!
