Home for the Holidays
Hey guys!  This winter season has been pretty fun so far, I must say!  I've been hanging with friends, enjoy newness in my life, and continuing to find new ways to be creative!  It has also been eye opening.  A lot of changes, new people in my life, and I am enjoying every minute of it!  I am, however, missing my best friend Sasha (who is currently residing in Germany).  We keep in touch pretty well, but it's not the same, not physically seeing/hanging out with her.  I have plans to visit her next summer, but it just isn't the same bringing in the New Year without her!!

As this year is coming to an end, it's time to reflect on life's blessings.  Revisit the good and the bad.  Realize the things you would like to change, and things you would like to evolve.  Holding on to the memories of loved ones you lost, and finding a way to move on, to keep peace and balance in your life!

I always make New Years Resolutions.  Although it may be cliche, I think it's great to have goals and aspirations, and working everyday to achieve these goals is what keeps me going!  Keep reaching!

Like my hair?!  I am loving it!  I was inspired by Alex of The Good Hair Blog, and it is so easy to maintain!  I'll be adding this new "doo" in my rotation of "go-to hair doo's!"
Sharing with you all some decorations around the house :)

All of my Christmas shopping is done (I did it all online), and all I have to do is wrap my presents!  I'll probably save that for Christmas Eve... There needs to be some last minute element to cut down my anxiousness/excitement for Christmas Day!!

I've also been on the hunt for a New Year's Eve outfit, but am having no luck!  Every dress I find myself liking is either sold out or unavailable in my size.  I may have to go to the mall and find some pieces to whip together.  Do you guys have any plans for NYE?  I am heading to the city again, but my plans aren't solidified.  Whatever I do, I just want to bring in the New Year with the people I love!  

Happy holidays!!


Rollin' in the club with some scrubs.
Friday night was VERY festive.  I ended up going out with Sasha, then meeting up with a couple friends at a local bar.  Now, this bar is known to be on the "sketchy" side.  Not sketchy in a dangerous way, but sketchy as in the people that frequent there.  It's a weird mix of 45+ year olds, college kids, 21-30 somethings like myself, and the occasional 60+ year old individuals whom have no business being out at a bar at midnight.

My friends and I roll up to this place, nothing's going on, but the dj is pretty good, so we start dancing.  I also told the dj that he MUST play some Nate Dogg in honor of his recent departure from this earth (R.I.P. Nate Dogg).  Of course it only takes a few people to start dancing (aka us), then everyone else joins in.  Everything was going smoothly until the first creepster enters the picture:

Subject 1: Short man in scrubs.  Yes, scrubs, like a nurse's scrubs.  As if he got off work from the hospital and went straight to the bar to get his groove on.  My girls and I were the only ones really dancing, so he and his two female friends start dancing, but then he starts dancing with us.  At first it was "Cute, haha, you're older, and tryna get down with some youngsters, get it!"  But then it was like, "Dude, chill, relax, please leave my personal space, thanks."

And he wasn't even into us like that *flips hand into limp position* but it was still a lot.  We literally had to run from him at one point!

Subject 2: Random grimey dude that hit on me, then hit on my friend right next to me, then hit on me again, ending with him literally chasing us down the street asking for our numbers.  I wasn't drinking that night (thank goodness), there was so much going on.

Welcome to my life in the suburbs.

After that we headed to a friends apartment and had a post-bar dance party, which was hilariously funny.  We had such a fun night, one for the books!

I was rapping Nicki's verse from "Monster" in this shot haha.  I really need to monitor the stank faces in my posts.  It can be a lot, I know...

My legs look stumpy in this pic... *Kanye shrug*

This past week I've also come to the conclusion that thrifting isn't for me.  I've tried a handful of times, and it's always a fail.  I have no patience for that kind of thing.  That is why online shopping works.  I know what I want, I search for it, and I find it.  Of course the occasional mall visit is enjoyable as well ;)

Besides that, I've been on the job hunt.  I can say that I'm getting closer, but not quite there.  Hopefully I'll be able to share some exciting news with you soon... (hopefully)!


P.S. Today is the second day of Spring, and I woke up to an inch of snow  -__-
