And Christmas is Over.

I can't believe its over already! I hope Santa was good to everyone :)
I had a great Christmas. Great times with my family and M's family. It always happens so fast. Then we got snowed in,,, so that kind of dragged it on a little bit!

(this isnt here...unfortunately real snow doesnt look like this lol)

The winner of the Christmas giveaway is...... Chronicles of Neely!   Thanks for playing girl!

Now we are getting closer to real life again since New Years is coming and then Jan 2 its go time. But I still have no job, so I am working on finding one...sort of. I am not too excited to get another job, it has been nice being off.

I got the Itouch from M for Christmas and its actually pretty amazing! I can't believe I didnt have it before hand. There are so many different applications that I can use and download! Anyone have any great ones that I should download right now? Please pass me the names,,,, I need to get away from the bakery game lmaooo

My 2011 New Years Resolutions

Its really hard for me to think about what I would want to accomplish in 2011 right now. 2010 was a very different year for me. A lot of things I didn't expect and then some good things on top of that.

So we shall see what 2011 brings me.  Hopefully its not an odd year that is horrible like 2009.

Here it goes..

1. Get a new job that I might like and can stay there for a while.
2. Travel more.
3. Get very close to finishing school. At least 8 or 9 classes this year.
4. Pay off my Barclays card
5. Keep my relationship if it continues to be healthy.
6. Get my Pura Vida tattoo
7. Stay the same weight if not lose a couple pounds
8. Find a hobby.
9. Learn how to make my own Sweet Potatoes for Thanksgiving

Wrapping With No Tape....

Definitely not the nicest jobs wrapping I have ever done. BUT I had no tape. So.... I couldnt use any wrapping paper. You would think I would have just bought tape... right. lol

I am DONE! Done Christmas shopping. Thank god! I couldn't stand it anymore. The stores are miserable... I cannot deal with the amount of people that are out and in the stores.. especially the parking situation. People would kill over a parking space I swear!

I've extended my $75 giveaway until Friday. You can use it after Christmas too (in case you didn't get everything you wanted!).  So sign up now!  GIVEAWAY

Anyone else still have gifts left to buy?

Sunday, December 19, 2010

I just wanted to make sure everyone knew about this website. They provide you with codes to all these different websites to get coupons for you. Check this out!!!!!! I remembered hearing about it on the radio a couple weeks about and couldnt remember the name but definitely check it out.. it could help in any shopping you have to do for the holidays!

Reading Twilight Again

With all this free time in my hands, I usually dont do this but I really wanted to read the Twilight series again. I hate re-reading books because I already know what happens in them and I usually find myself skipping pages, but I started reading Twilight again yesterday and I pretty much have forgotten all of the details in the book so reading it over again made it so good!

I am really excited about this.

Does anyone have a suggestion on any books that are like Twilight that I can read?  I remember hearing something about the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo?   Any suggestions on that? Also, someone mentioned Vampire Academy... ?

ps....less than 1 week till Christmas... holy crap!

The Gift of Unemployment

So it happened on Tuesday. And I have been embracing the non-working days hard core. Sleeping. Being with M. Drinking. Christmas Shopping. Watching TV.

It is almost like a huge weight has been lifted off of me. They are paying me until the end of December and I am not working. Soo.... it didnt turn out completely horrible. I have a demo I have to do for a company on Monday and if I get that job, I start January 5th, so in all I would have about 20 days off and 5 days where I wasnt getting paid. Not terrible... this will be the most amount of time I have had off in a VERY VERY long time. And honestly, if I dont get that job, it isnt the end of the world. There are many options.

So over the next couple of weeks the most important things are, christmas shopping (which I am almost done with!), being with M, getting my hair done, and applying for jobs. School is done so I dont have to worry about that and the last thing is really just reading and hanging out and going to the gym.

As upset as I was about everything that was going on, I think this will open up options for me and not hold me back from exploring new things.

The amount of money I will save from not getting gas every other day will be good as well! I was really upset at first and now I am just trying to embrace everything that has happened and hopefully everything will work out .

And the countdown until Christmas begins....

i really appreciate everyones advice about the M situation. as i still really dont know what to do, im glad to get other peoples opinions on the matter. i am going to ride it out and see how it goes. i dont want to not be with him right now and i am not married and i had no right to be snooping. i knew what i was getting myself into when i met him but its whatever. i have way too many other things to stress over besides this right now.

so here i am. i hope everything goes okay. the job interview was good. i have a follow up next week. ahhhhhhh.

its supposed to snow on Sunday, of course because its our party. On a brighter note, I sold my first picture this week from Etsy!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

i hope everyone has a nice weekend!

a non titler

You have a special place in the world. All you have to do is find it. Do not give up on yourself, on the truths you have realized. Do not give in to those who would crush your dreams like nutshells. And never turn away from forever love.
 — Ellen Hopkins. (quote found via Little Reminders of Love) 

i found this and needed to share it with you because it was good to find today. i have been so down, its so hard to get up in the morning.
im so upset that i am this down, and its the holidays and everyone else is happy. it makes me feel like i cant really talk to anyone because i dont want to bring them down too with my problems. and i hate that i dont have much positive things to write about here as well because i dont want to depress any of my readers either!! so im sorry if it is :(

there are 2 huge things in my life that are depressing me.  My job and the fact that its ending and something i saw about M.
I am sad to leave all my friends at work and have to start over again. I dont think there will be a choice and i will just have to leave. So the process of finding another one really sucks.

i found something out about M. i saw something that i probably shouldnt have and it is eating me up inside and i dont know if its true or not, but all evidence points to the fact that it is true..

i need your advice.

if you find something, that you are NOT supposed to be looking in and its bad, what do you do? do you confront them? do you forget you saw it? do you break up with them?

i dont know why this happens to me. why cant someone just like me?

please, advice. i need it bad.

a lovely but sickly holiday weekend

love this picture :)

ahh..back to work.

i hope everyone had a nice thanksgiving weekend. mine was very low key, considering i have been deathly sick since Tuesday and have yet to get better.

I actually haven't drank or went out to a bar since last weekend and I honestly can't believe I didn't go out once this weekend. I think if i had been feeling better, i would have attempted it, but i didnt.

I did however accomplish a bunch of other things this weekend like catching up on watching movies! Elf, Along Came Polly, Click, Meet the Fockers, Sex & the City 2, Grownups, uhm.... many others. But it was great. I did a project for my class, hung out with M, and the best part, created an Etsy store!!!!

I am actually very excited about my Etsy store. I have many pictures that I can add to it, but I dont know if anyone would actually buy it.. but I am very happy! Please check it out and use the 15% discount code NOVELISTA at my Etsy Shop.

This is basically my attempt at being creative, so we shall see how it goes.
This is my favorite one so far....

A Novelista Barista Etsy Shop!!!

I have been trying something out. I really don't know if anyone would actually like my pictures, but everywhere I have been I have taken a lot of landscape pictures of the different places I have traveled. And I personally thought they were nice lol... So I wanted to see what the deal with Etsy was and if anyone was actually potentially interested in them.

Sooo... take a look at them and let me know what you think. I am open to criticisms or feedback.


AND if you are my reader, and want to buy a picture, you get 15% off when you put in the code: NOVELISTA.


A giveaway will be in order VERY SOON :)

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

I thought today was a good day to talk about what I am thankful and grateful for. But I decided against it, since I am grateful for many things, the list is pretty similar to what you could imagine it would be.

I really wanted to take a moment to think of the people who cannot enjoy Thanksgiving with their families, don't have enough money to eat the food that we can eat, and who are just plain not able to enjoy this day as a holiday.

So I wish everyone the best day today.
