Happy Holidays my blog family!

How was your Christmas? Houston was unusually hot this year at 82 degrees, I’ve been sleeping with the fan on all week. We celebrated with way too many tamales and Santa’s questionable presents.

Every Christmas my work does a wreath auction to raise money for charity (sometimes with holiday vacations included) and I love walking down the hall to see what people made. Last year there was 11 Frozen themed wreaths. Seriously. (This year only two, thank goodness)

Here were my two favs!

And now for the Christmas highlights…IMG_6771My favorite present I got! My cousin gets me :)

My mom/Santa got me a paint by numbers as requested, and decided to go in an interesting direction of wild horses..?

Top 5 Books of 2015

Top 5 Books I Read in 2015

Some of these were published in 2015 and are brand new, yay! And some are really old and only just now have gotten on my radar. Most (all) “Top Books of 2015” lists only include books published in 2015, but I say why limit yourself? Cheers to another good reading year! May 2016 bring many more great reads :)

1. Assassination Vacation

murder! suspense! U.S. presidents! historical musicals! Everything I never knew I wanted in a book.

2. Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: And Other Lessons from the Crematory

“A girl always remembers the first corpse she shaves.” ((first sentence)) whaaaa educational yet ever so morbid. Done and done.

3. The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt

THE MOST INTERESTING MAN THERE EVER WAS

4.  A Court of Thorns and Roses

Because sometimes I need to feed the inner YA in me and no one does it better than Sarah J Maas. (ok except for Sarah Dessen, obviously)

So timely! I will never think about the internet/people  the same way again. Maybe not the best written book out there, it is definitely one that has stayed with me and kept me thinking all year round.

What’s on your list?

Trying Something New: Blue October

I dragged my friend with me to see Blue October for the sole reason of hearing them play my 7th grade jam, Calling You. Ok yes still my jam to this day- I know all the words and nothing would make me happier than scream singing them.

Things I learned at a Blue October concert:

  1. I should probably only go to concerts where I know their songs
  2. Old people like Blue October too (like really old)
  3. Sometimes a band needs a 40 minute intermission (?????????????)
  4. You can look up a band’s set list online (amazing, thank you technology!)
  5. “Post rock instrumental” bands are a thing
  6. I will only buy seat tickets because standing is for youths.

We ended leaving early because it was kinda the worst concert I have ever been to. And they didn’t even play Calling You. I checked. Online.

 

I’m all for trying something new and always hope for the best, because how great is it when you go out on a limb and it’s a giant success! happy day! shout from the roof tops! annnnd sometimes trying something new leaves you with a fun story for your next trying something new adventure (or awkward work party) :)

After lounging around the house all weekend recovering from the sinus allergies from Mordor, I’m ready to kick this week’s butt. anddd need a little help getting amped..

I’d like to take a moment to thank the music gods for R. Kelly’s Remix to Ignition. Yes,  I know all the words. No, I’m not ashamed.

Let’s keep throwing it back with this song.
