[Blog] Housekeeping & Life [Update]

Life has been hectic! I feel like it's just go, go go! No time to slow down, never mind actually stop or even take a relaxing deep breath.

Michele at Short Girl Long Island asked me to participate in a blog series she has, Teach Me Something Thursday. Last Thursday, was my post on pumpkin carving (without a knife), which you can see here.

Amber, from Airing My Dirty Laundry One Sock At A Time, has finally released her book, which you can find here. It's $0.99 and honestly a good read. I'm about 80% through and I love it! Amber's blog was one of the very first blogger blogs I followed, ever.

Have I mentioned recently how much I love Jennifer and her blog, Southern Living: Preppy Style? Jennifer is one of my favourite bloggers and her blog is a 'must read' for me.

And finally, one of my best friends, Holly, (her blog can be found here). Her company, My Dream Sample Box is a favourite of mine. I know that her October boxes have gone out, but you can still order!

So, what have I been up to?

About 2.5 months ago, I moved to a new city. I'm still getting settled in my apartment and haven't had the chance to really explore the city and see what it has to offer. I haven't even made a trip to the local mall- which a lot of people are surprised to hear. 

I'm now working full time (which I hadn't done for 2 years), so that's been an adjustment. Plus, my social life is, well, social! When I was living in rural Ontario, my social life was non-existent, pretty much. 

Two weekends ago, a childhood friend got married. It was great to see her so happy! Her wedding was beautiful, elegant and fun! I had a great time and was so blessed to be include in her special day.

Two weekends ago was (Canadian) Thanksgiving. I loved being home and being with my family. We had our traditional turkey dinner on Sunday, which is when we also celebrated my 'baby' cousins 15th birthday! My aunt even brought out Disney Princess birthday hats for the 'kids'. So much fun. On Monday (real Thanksgiving), we had roast beef- which was good- with my grandma and celebrated my parents wedding anniversary. 

This weekends social calendar includes a gala tomorrow night, a to be announced outing with my sister and a house party invite both on Saturday. I'm sure it will be another busy but fun weekend. 

Last weekend, I ordered my Christmas cards. It might be a little early, but I send out a ton of cards and it takes me forever to write them all out!

Speaking of Christmas...
