I'm really upset with myself for not taking the time to update my blog lately, but I promise you, I have not had one minute to myself ever since I came back from France. I still haven't uploaded my pictures, I have not started our Christmas shopping, and I still have SO much to get done at work before the holidays.
I came back to a ton of work to catch up on, followed by our month-end close week, and I've been so tired at night that I have not had the energy to get on the computer at home. My weekends haven't been light either, which is another reason why I have not started my Christmas shopping - I know I'm going to regret this when I am fighting for a parking spot at the mall this weekend.
I won't go into a lot of details, but to give you an idea, here are a few things that have happened since my return from France:
My younger brother Kevin turned 19, my niece turned 4, my soon to be brother-in-law David turned 27, my cousin Jordan turned 18 one of my good friends Amy got engaged while I was in Paris, and asked me to be in her wedding; oh and...guess what...I have found my wedding dress!!!!
Happy Birthday Lil Brother!!!
Happy 4th Birthday my love!!
(yes, this outfit is from Zara, and I was pretty much wearing the same one - no I am not brainwashing her...yet!)
Happy Birthday Gregors!
Happy 18th Dadou (Jordan, and his mother - my cousin who is battling cancer right now)
Congratulations Amy and Kyle on your engagement!!! I am SO excited to be a part of your big day :)
I know this doesn't sound like a lot, but let me just say that I have attended all of these birthdays, and have managed to stay sane during yet again another crazy month-end close at work. Is it possible that I ALREADY need another vacation!?
At least, I took the time to put up our Christmas tree, and decorated our apartment for the holidays. I cannot wait for next week - we get the Friday and Monday after Christmas off - so happy about that! I'm ready for family time (which I missed while being in Paris during Thanksgiving), some good foods, fun presents, and spending time with my other half, because I really feel like I have neglected him these past few weeks.
Our tree - with Hannukah colors for my mom :)
Oh and check out Michael's parents AMAZING tree!!!
I love the stocking she had made for us.
And as for the wedding dress...well, you will just have to wait! All I can say is that it was love at first sight, and I cannot wait to be able to show you pictures!!!
Ahh can you tell that most of these are mobile pictures?! I seriously need to take the time to upload my pictures!
I hope you are all doing well, and getting ready for the holidays! We are so close!!!!
