Hummpday Confessions & #Hashtags - Things I've Been Doing Instead of Blogging

Wednesday, November 25, 2015

I confess, I'm kinda looking forward to the rain tomorrow night... ~~ Houston Foodlovers Book Club:

So just going to lay it out there today and talk about some things I have been doing other than blogging. I miss blogging! I have gotten horribly off track on the scheduling of my evenings which is when I used to do a lot of my writing. Also work, work is insanely busy like all the time. At my old job I had down time and honestly I could do that job and ten other things at once because it was not super challenging. Then I was unemployed for like 5 months, hello blogging all day every day.  My current position is with a much larger firm and truth be told I am kind of rocking it... I'll say it. I love it too... bonus. But I gotta work during the day, no bloggy time except maybe for a little bit on my lunch hour. Which brings me here... on a Wednesday talking about my weekend and confessing with Kathy and Nadine and hash tagging with Lolo and Lauren all that good shit.

My children are currently on Thanksgiving break and spending the week with their Dad. Let that sink in for a moment... I am sans kids for the whole week!!! You guys know I adore the hell out of those little reflections of me but when they go hang with the other one I am just so freaking ecstatic. It's a vacation in my own home and I love it.  #Thanksgivingstaycation

This week is going to  pretty much be like this cause I'm definitely going out a lot...

and maybe a little of this cause I'm def staying in a lot too...

Also I have been eating some wonderful things lately. My Aunt was in town last week and she took me out to dinner and let me pick the place. I chose this wonderful little spot that I talked about here, The Wrecking Bar Brew Pub in  Little 5 Points which is a little cool area in town. It's on a list of 38 places to eat in Atlanta that I am working my way thru and I highly recommend it! We had some Beer, Snapper, Sirloin and Apple Crisp... seriously good food. It was also recently featured on Guy Fieri's Diners Drive Ins and Dives... so yeah, GO!

I am also currently bingeing on fire and wood that's what she said and new velvety blankets for my bed since it is officially cold in Atlanta. Ok don't hate me northern people, it is cold enough for fire... that is all. I am from MI so I know it's not really cold but when it dips into the 30's at night and your house gets no sun it's like a tomb and we light the fireplace and save dolla dolla bills on gas. I bought a cute little fire pit too at Wal-Mart and assembled it all by myself... See... think I might be christening that this weekend with a little driveway bonfire party. #finallygotwood #letsburnone

I am going to my bestie's house for dinner tomorrow and I may even venture out into the world for Black Friday which I have never done before. I need a TV for my bedroom and the deals are looking too good to pass up! Do you black Friday shop? Any tips for me? I am still not sure it's for me. #blackfridayvirgin

Hope everyone has a #blessed holiday and eats all the delicious foods!

Happy Thanksgiving & Happy Wednesday!!!

  3. I miss having fire pit parties. This freaking island is still 80 degrees!

  4. Black Friday is the devil. Do NOT do it, lol I used to love it but now... omg... the people are so freakin' irritating they ruin the whole experience. And the sales aren't what they used to be several years ago either.

  5. hells yes to alone time. i love my family and all but sometimes they needs to GTFO so i can have my ME time and keep my sanity.

    happy thanksgiving!

  6. Sometimes you need a little alone time. I am behind on my blog reading this week, otherwise I could have shared all my black friday tips with you! I am a black friday pro. Been doing in since 1993 when I was 10 years old. Hahaha. Did you get what you ventured out for?
