I promise I started this post on Tuesday but I just couldn’t come up with 5 things. So I’ve been mulling over it for the past couple days, trying to get you the best of what’s happening right now.
Slowly but surely, here you go:
1 IT’S NOVEMBER Y’ALL - I don’t know if it has the same effect on you, but every time this month rolls around I feel like I blink and the year is gone.
We have two more months, y’all. Two more months to make the most of whatever New Years Resolutions we set out for 2013. I wonder how I’m doing.
Honorable mention: thanksgiving festivities, last minute travels, no shave November/Movember, sweaters and scarves, being able to wear boots again …
2 I’M FINDING THAT I’M A STICKLER ABOUT SEASONS - You may not know this about me, but I am very particular about certain things being in their respective seasons.
For example, I only bake pumpkin chocolate chip cookies two months out of the year - October and November. But as soon as it hits Black Friday, it’s officially Christmas Season and I switch gears for Christmas cookies.
But I realized that it’s not just baking, in my personal opinion:
- Christmas music should only be from Black Friday to New Years Eve.
- That’s also the same window where I need to watch my 5 Must See Christmas Movies
- Not to mention Advent Calendars! I want to make one for the apartment.
- I’d like to make Red Velvet Cupcakes around Valentine’s Day (I haven’t really followed through on this one much, but I should).
- I only watch (500) Days of Summer in summer (along with a few other to-do’s).
- And zombie movies around Halloween (which I failed to do this year)
I’m going to enjoy the rest of the Autumn Spirit as long as I can.
3 SPEAKING OF SEASONS, I’M NOW ENTERING A VERY BUSY ONE (SORT OF) - Generally speaking, Nov/Dec is a time that flies by super fast. I don’t know if it’s the holidays or the shorter days, but it just seems to always be so busy and jam-packed. In a way, I know that I’m approaching busy season in my creative to-do’s.
i may have really jumped the gun on just setting up a ton of meetings , because now my project list is growing a little too fast. Which is a good thing, but it’s also a little intimidating. But I’m up for the challenge!
(I’m sorry for the F-Bomb in the photo below. I just felt like this photos perfectly resembles what the creative process is like, so I kept it.)
4 CHUCK IS ON NETFLIX, SON! I’m totally starting that from the beginning and trucking straight through.
It’s really important to have great shows to watch when you edit pictures … or are Pinteresting.
5 I REALLY LIKE HAVING FRESH FLOWERS IN THE HOUSE - Recently we hosted a birthday breakfast at Tres Dudes and a beautiful bouquet of flowers stayed behind by accident. And I have to admit, I loved having them here to brighten the place.
But flowers only last so long, so now we have a new batch of autumn-colored flowers. I had to share! Mostly because they’re pretty but also because they’re right in front of my face.
