Excuses Excuses

Am I the worst blogger on the face of the planet? Nah, probably not, but I haven't been the best one lately either! I still feel like my life is a whirlwind and though I'd like to think it will calm down a bit soon, I'd be kidding myself because with the baby shower, Halloween, my sister's baby being born, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc. that just isn't going to happen! So what have I been up to lately?

Reveling in the fact that we picked the best wedding date for peak foliage. I think I've mentioned it before know it's dorky, but when Brian and I were picking a wedding date we researched peak foliage dates in Pennsylvania. We went with October 17, 2015, and I think it is going to be perfect. Within the next week almost all the leaves will be changed over and it's going to be pretty!

Suffering from my stupid allergies. Luckily last week my doctor gave me a steroid shot to help calm things down because functioning was not something I was capable of there for awhile. I love love love fall and these allergies have kept me holed up inside as much as possible and away from the beautiful 50-60 degree fall weather! At least I have my fall/Halloween decorations to look at, my candles to smell, and my fireplace to keep me warm.

Taking care of Reese after her $730 dental surgery. When we got her back, unfortunately she hadn't been taken care of very well, so after getting her shots and groomed (she got a lion cut and it's adorable), she needed a dental cleaning and to have 4 teeth removed, poor thing! She's doing great and will be back to eating solid food tomorrow.

Working an extra day a week in the office. So you know how I "work from home" for my job now? Well I still was going into the office Tuesdays and Thursdays 9-12, and now I am also going in Wednesdays 1-4. Meh, it's alright, I'll take it.

Caught up in baby shower planning mania. We have like 45 people coming to my sister's surprise baby shower next weekend! It's being held at my parents' house, and it's been a lot of work. Between having to rent tables and chairs to put in my parents living room (which we are going to have to take all the furniture out of for everyone to fit in there and in the kitchen), ordering the food and cake, making and printing games, favors, ordering and making decorations, etc., it has been nuts, but I cannot wait. Seriously, it's going to be awesome and I can't wait to share pictures. Also, I can't stop buying baby clothes and looking up baby stuff. Hopefully when my nephew is born it will cure this baby fever.

Watching tons of fall TV and Beverly Hills 90210. Fall seriously is the best time of the year. The shows are just top notch (now I sound like my dad). I watch Revenge, Madam Secretary, The Good Wife, Selfie, Manhattan Love Story, 19 Kids and Counting (#ashamed), The Goldbergs, American Horror Story, Nashville, How to Get Away with Murder, and Parenthood (okay okay and Girl Meets World..what? It's cute). Am I missing any of your favorites? Brian's just happy hockey's back.

Rooting on the Orioles in their playoff run! Let's hope for the World Series, Brian and I will be 100% getting tickets to that. Let's go O's!

  1. Ahhh I remember my baby shower, so much fun!

    I tell you what will cure baby fever, go spend two nights with your sister and her new nephew. Poof baby fever gone!

  2. If you are suffering from allergies and the steroid shot worked, you should consider a nasal steroid. My doc gave me a prescription for something that you spray up your nose (that is a steroid) and it has worked WONDERS. Seriously night and day difference. I can't remember what it is called, but maybe ask about it?

  3. kelli is 100% right. spend the weekend with your sis and her new baby and trust me, you'll be SO HAPPY to be able to hand the baby over, leave and sleep for dayssssss LOL

  4. Poor Reese, she looks so sad! But adorable lmao. I think my cat would kill me if I gave him a lion cut.

  5. I'm sharing looking up the foliage dates with my friend who wants a similarly fall-loving wedding!

  6. Ahhh kittaaaayyyyy! Poor little kitty, I hope Reese is back to tip top shape soon! So cute!

    I LOVE PA in the fall! LOVE LOVE LOVE! You are not alone on the allergies though, my friend! Ugh!

    I have never had baby fever in my life. Puppy fever? All the time. Baby fever, not so much. Perhaps because I have six nieces and three nephews. I get my fix and then I am ready for some quiet! Haha!

    My favorite shows are Revenge, Scandal, Good Wife, Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, Law and Order SVU, How to Get Away With Murder, and soon Grimm and PLL will be starting back :)

  7. Eek! Your wedding is going to be SO fall!!!! :) already can't wait to see pics! You've been a busy bee!

  8. the fall tv line up is soooo good this year. i have never watched (recorded) so much TV in my LIFE. revenge, HTGAWM, goldbergs, from a to z, there is SO MUCH!!!!
