Why Does This Season Have To Be So Stressful

I’ve been MIA the past few weeks. I’ve been unbelievably busy, almost nerve-wreckingly so. But I’ve missed this place, and I’m glad to be back.

Between getting things ready for year end at work, studying for my final, and getting ready for Christmas, I’m surprised I’m not bald or completely grey. But thankfully the end is almost here.

 I had a trial run for my hair for the wedding that is THIS Saturday. Cannot believe how fast time is flying.
And those are the earrings I plan to wear.
But not that lipstick, because my entire family hated it. Booourns.
And then I went to my first ever bachelorette party.
 Debrah’s massive Bachelorette Bitch glass.
 All but one of the bridesmaids and the bride. 
It was pretty snowy outside so we decided not to rock heels for the occasion.
 We had a bit of a snowstorm Sunday night. I had to walk home from my cousin’s house in this mess.
 And then I woke up to this.
There’s supposed to be a set of steps there somewhere.
My car drifted in, and the plow bank was higher than the front of my car.
I really don’t mind shoveling and snowblowing my driveaway. Its exercise and it gets me off the couch and out in to the fresh air. But I’d really really prefer to not have to get up at 6am to do it.
But on a positive note, its beginning to look a lot like Christmas. And yes, I sang along in my head as I wrote that. 
I’m almost done my Christmas shopping. Maybe only one or two things left to get. I left most of my shopping until the last few weeks, because I had to study for that stupid final exam in Macroeconomics, and because I kinda had to spread out the spending. 
And because I left it until basically the last minute I’ve been stressed, because I had no clue what to get anyone. And for most people I can use gift cards as a back up plan. But not for my mom. I had a bunch of ideas, but none of them were panning out. And I spent all of yesterday panicking about not having anything for her. So much so that I may have broke down and cried about it after work last evening. But someone somewhere must have heard my sobs, because when I went to the mall last night I decided to go back to Pseudio on a whim just in case they had what I was looking for, and they did! And obviously I can’t say what I bought, because someone, ahem Shelley, told my mom all about this little piece of the interwebz.
And then I went to Target, and discovered that every.single.piece of clothes that I fell in love with since the store opened had been moved to the clearance section for $5 each!!! Which just really sealed the deal on it being a fantastic night, because I bought a few items for myself, and snagged a gorgeous blazer for my friend for Christmas. So you should definitely keep an eye out around these parts next week, cause I’ll be wearing those lovelies for sure.
And I’m going to stop rambling now, because I’m sure your sick of it and its soon quitting time aka 5 o’clock, and I have to go celebrate the first birthday of this adorable face. 
Happy Birthday Jesse Bear!
