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.

Black Friday & Holiday Travel

On the radio this morning while driving to work, they were talking about the different horror stories of Black Friday and some things you should keep in mind when you are traveling for the holidays today.

I love this show by the way. I was never a fan at first but have recently grown to love it. Elvis Duran & the morning show.... has anyone heard it before?

I have actually worked in retail in Aeropastle before many years ago. I had to be in the store at 4am to get ready and by the end of the day, the store was a complete MESS and it was insane chaotic. Thank god I never had to do it again.

Anyway, I am not traveling anywhere besides driving to my parents house and then to M's house. Other then that, I'm not going anywhere. And I am DEFINITELY not shopping on Friday. NO WAY would you catch me in a store on Friday. Worst day ever to be anywhere near a mall or a store.

They were also talking about holiday travel and how some people are just not fit to travel. You have to understand that when you are traveling, there WILL be delays, there WILL be lines, they MIGHT lose your bags, and there WILL be children crying and people yelling. But that is what comes with travel. And some people just lose it and can't handle it. Which is all completely true. I cannot imagine having to be in an airport today on the busiest traveling day of the year, because I have been in an aiport at 3AM and there have still been lines and all that stuff going on and there wasn't that many people there. So I wish everyone good luck in their travels!

Will you be traveling or shopping this holiday?

I Don't Know What It Is....

Why am I stuck in this slump? I feel like everything is just so blah and I can't get out of it. I am not excited for anything because everything could be up in the air in December and I just don't know. And things with M are fine... but I constantly think he is doing something wrong behind my back and I don't know how to kick that feeling.
Maybe it's just the rain. Maybe it's with everything being so shitty lately.

I spent much needed time with my girl V this weekend helping her unpack all day and all that. It was good. I needed it. Then I spent time with my girls from work Sat night, so that was a lot of fun.

I've talked to M many times about his ex, and for some reason she just will no go away and I am afraid that I will keep pushing myself away so I don't get hurt.

I dont know. I am stuck. I need to get pulled out.

Ps.... cheery note... Monday Giveaway!!! sign up now!
