Pardon the interruption! I'm not sure the last time I've gone this long without blogging, but now that I'm back at home, I thought it was time to catch you up on life....lately!
La La Land--I saw this a couple of weekends ago and LOVED it. I'm a huge musicals, and love the sweeping music numbers in classic films/Fred and Ginger. I didn't like the ending, but understood why it ended as it did. I've been playing the soundtrack constantly when not listening to Christmas music.
Moana--It has been a tradition for the past 16 years, that my youngest sis and I have watched a movie around Thanksgiving or Christmas at the theatre. This started when she was 5. She brought her hub and his younger bro and I think they enjoyed it. I liked it.
Finally mailed out Christmas cards...on the 22nd...which most people didn't get until yesterday.
Unwrapped presents and spent time with family--while I loved everything, my youngest sis got necklaces for me, her, and our sis Jess. Mine has Big Sis, Jess has Middle Sis, and Holly has Lil Sis. It's so sweet. I think my family liked their presents?
Had fun playing with nieces and nephews
Hit up some after Christmas sales--did you see my haul on my blog's Facebook page?
Cleaned away all the Christmas--the earliest I have ever done so!
Now that Christmas music is over for me, it's been a lot of George Michael (rip), La La Land, and pretty much anything on the radio.
A Life in Parts, an audiobook by Bryan Cranston--I really enjoyed this. I knew nothing of the man, never having seen much of his shows, but found his life and career interesting. It's also a bit of a master class in acting. It made the trip back home and back to Atlanta fly by in the foggy weather.
I felt so awful during the holidays but am finally getting better. I just wanted to sleep, which is very unusual for me. Ugh.
The crazy temps! It was in the 80s back in my hometown for Christmas. We were joking that we were dashing through the leaves instead of snow and blasting the air conditioner.
So excited to see that Maybelline shared my pic on Insta! Usually you get asked by a brand and you suspect they might share your pic, but this was a nice surprise.
I'll be back tomorrow with makeup and more!
