Hello! I took a very unexpected (but much needed) hiatus from not only my blog(s) but from other means of electronic communication.
I haven't been around here in blog land or facebook land or e-mail land. 
I've been busy with reality land. 

(or just reality.)

So first thing is first: 
Giveaway Winner is......
Woo Hoo! Congrats!

Since I've taken some time off lets recap:

-I rearranged our living room - unexpectedly & I moved our brand new expensive TV by myself. The Hubby just about had a heart attack when he came home..... It sort of made me feel like I could do ANYTHING!

-Some holiday paper plates CANNOT be used in the microwave. We set our microwave on fire. Yikes!

-I've learned how to function on the energy gained solely from caffeine...Can you say quadruple espresso???

-I have the itch to take care of something and I really don't want it to be a baby, so we are ready for a puppy!

-I'm missing NY like crazy... and I have looked up tickets to go home just about everyday this week. (yea... in my dreams...)

-I've found out what love language the Hubby speaks and how I can learn to speak his dialect!

-I'm planning my brother's trip to Japan in a few months & it will mark the very first time my brothers and I travel without parental buffers. Should be fun, yet interesting....

-I flourish when I have a busy schedule (please ignore the fact that I dropped the ball on blogging...) - I realize that I'm most alert, I remember the most, and I function the best when I know when and where I have to be....

-After a financial aid meltdown, I just found out that I'll finish my degree next summer with minimal student loans!

Okay.. I could really go on and on and on... but I'll save those for some good blogs...

Movie Critic Friday will be back up and running this upcoming week.... I've watched some good ones (and some not-so good ones)!
I'm happy to be back to blogging. 
please don't hate me....


  1. Ooo I've gotten that itch twice..the urge to take care of something and my husband brought home a puppy both times. Hence why we have 2 dogs, ha!

  2. I'm so glad you're back! I've actually been thinking about you the past couple of days (is that weird in blog-land?!) and hoping you were doing alright! I can't wait for Movie Critic Friday. I saw "Up in the Air" this week and it was FANTASTIC!

  3. Glad you are back ~ I've missed you!!

  4. Yay! Glad to see you're back!

  5. Too cute. Well anytime you have an itch to take care of something, you can always come over and take care of my little ones. Haha. I know they'd love you. :)

    So you seriously set your microwave on fire from paper plates? I didn't know that could happen! What kind of paper plates were they so I know not to use those in the microwave???

    I too have been missing my home like crazy. I've found myself plenty of times looking at the hops schedule and checking plane ticket pricing. I'm hoping to go home in November for my SIL's wedding, but we'll see. I may just take a hop this summer though.

    With financial aid are you not getting the CAA?

  6. Glad to have you back!! Totally understand the need for a break from electronics

  7. I was wondering if you were ok. Glad to have you back and I can definitely understand the need for a break.

  8. Hey! I was wondering where you'd gotten to :) Sounds like you've been busy, but in a good way! Good luck with the puppy search.
