super fun weekend

{-- my little bud, Eddie, in his new winter sweater --}

I've decided to keep my blog here, at its current address. I thought about moving it but decided against because why should I change for anything or anybody! My life is great and I still want to share the happy moments I have with you and not lose anyone in the process.

I had one of the best weekends. I've been super busy and super happy, I can't keep up. It all started with our Halloween party at work on Friday. We took off at noon and went to Skate Daze where we roller-skated/rollerbladed and played lazer tag. I've never played and it was a lot of fun! We played two rounds and won the second :)

Day before, I got together with my mom and she helped me pull together my DIY costume. A few people got it. Let's see if you can. Below is a sneak peek. My shirt had flames on it and I had a tail. It has to do with what I do for a living.

The party ended at about 2:30pm and they let us all start our weekend early (I love my job!). I went home, took a long, heavy nap on the couch with Suki and headed to my parents to pick up my dad. Left in the evening to my sister's in Lincoln to stay the night and go to the game on Saturday. And, what an awesome game! High fives, jumping up and down and "Whooos" all throughout. So much fun. Go big red!

Leaving the game and then Lincoln Saturday evening; I got home and met up with a good friend of mine and we headed out to Benson to a Halloween party at Krug Park. All sorts of people watching, my cup of tea.

Sunday was such a chill day, they're probably my favorites. I meet my mom every Sunday for coffee and reading and I typically nap and lounge all morning and afternoon. Followed up coffee with my friend coming by again, cooked dinner (Chicken Waterzooi de Poulet, a yearly seasonal must) and we watched Big Bang Theory and American Horror Story. Oh my! Have you seen American Horror Story?? We watched from the beginning on On Demand and it was phenomenal. I couldn't believe how good it was. So bizarre, freaky and super intriguing. Can't wait to get back from out of town this week to watch the new episode.

I hope your weekend was as stellar as mine and here's to another super busy week ahead!

back home

{ -- Eddie after I got home, my little booger is sleepy heads -- }

I may be alone but it feels good to have a 'home' to come home to :) It's not much but I love my apartment. I just need someone to fix it up for me; style it and make it more comfy. My recent trip to NY brought me to a couple friends of mine and their apartment. It was awesome and I really wanted to take photos but didn't want to be too forward. I joked about having her design my apartment and help decorate it, I instantly get jealous of those who can do that and actually follow through. She quickly said, 'yes' and was very serious about it. I think I'll send her photos this week and see if she's still interested and can help give tips on items to help organize and decorate the space. First step: pick up, pile up and make room to start organizing items.

I have quite a bit of photos from NY that I'd like to share and will do that this week as well, so come back to see those! It was pretty amazing but I'm glad I'm home.

NYC, here i am!

I can't believe it but I am here in New York, in my second day and got to see the view already from a previous post. This image is mine this time and I got to see it in person :) and I get to see more.

Last weekend was amazing and saw some really awesome bands play this weekend with a good friend (and, I didn't have to buy his ticket...perrrfect). Posted a short video of Of Mice & Men playing (beware, lots of screaming and 'angry' music after click) and got to meet a few of the band members. Photos below. It couldn't have been a better weekend.

Can't be more thankful. I hope your weekend was just as eventful and full of the things you love and what makes you happy. I know mine was. Life couldn't get better? Could it?? I'm in New York!
