a current state of the union

Wednesday, November 20

 I have to start off by saying it has been some time since I've sat down to write a post without a clear purpose. Usually I'm frantically posting pictures of an outfit I love, or an event that happened while it's still relevant, or month resolutions before the month is over.

SO, it feels nice to just say hey. Things are grand. I would love to take some outfit pictures but the daylight isn't allowing it lately (BUT- the persistent blogger in me has been "micro-blogging" some outfit pics via perfectly PRIYA on Twitter. It's actually been really fun!). I try to keep it real over here but: I really am loving my new schedule and therefore lifestyle. Here's what else is going on lately...

and for those of you who are more visual learners:
friends//friends [adventures lately]

- I am going home for Thanksgiving in ONE week. [Whaaaat?! I am so excited and it hit me so fast!]

- As plans go, I am moving in Jan/Feb to West Nashville. [I know what you're thinking, but you just moved! We haven't even seen pictures of your place {That's still going to happen, btw}! Here's the sitch: Shel is buying a home. I am moving with her.

- In an effort to stay fit and feeling well, I'm trying to be disciplined about what I'm eating + exercising consistently. [This includes: getting a YMCA membership, drinking either coffee/alcohol/soda but not all in one day, eating healthy snacks all day, and shopping at TJ's so I'm eating veggies.]

- I've picked up some goodies online AND through people downsizing their closets (theeeee best). So, getting dressed these days has been pretty easy and fun! [All it takes is some pick-me-ups.]

- I'm silly, and as I've told several people I work with: I just didn't realize that when I started working I'd make so many awesome friends. I already have like, several girls I ADORE and I keep making new friends. I'll stop ranting about my job but I look forward to going to work and I miss people on the weekends! [I can't believe I got so lucky.]

- As of Saturday I'm done working regularly part-time (along with my full-time job). And man, I'll miss it a little, but the regular FREE TIME is outstanding. My evenings this week are packed though, just catching up with lots of friends and maybe babysitting on Friday? [Being an adult rocks.]

- I am by no means any expert on blogging, but in any blogging conversation with a friend I always hear myself saying the same thing: make sure YOU love it. Make sure you love what you're writing and that you look forward to doing it. Unless you're making a living from it, it should be for yourself (and even then...). So there's my blogging thought for the day. 

Thank you for reading, friends! I look forward to catching up on your lives, via blog, Twitter, emails, letters, text messages, phone calls, whatevs!

Time flies doesn't it!? Can't believe next week is Thanksgiving. So much! I totally love that you are looking forward to regular free time. I never thought about free time being "regular" before...it's so true. =D

Sounds like you are one busy bee...and all in a good way :-) I cannot believe Thanksgiving is nearly here already! I cannot believe this year is almost over as well! Have an amazing time at home for Thanksgiving. I'll have to check my Twitter more often to catch your microblogging!
