Negligent Blogger

I must apologize to those few fans I have who actually come to my blog to cure their boredom for a least a few short minutes. I have not been posting quite as frequently as I would like, due to outside factors...strike that...it's just one outside factor-LIFE!! Once October hit I knew things would start speeding up with things like party planning at work, the time change, Halloween, upcoming holidays, shopping, etc. Things start to get hectic around this time of the year, and 2009 is certainly no exception. To be honest this entire year has pretty much been a racing blurr...but that's life, right? No sense in complaining, things could be much worse!



So Bubba and I technically had our first Halloween "together" this year. And by together I mean out on our own, being able to decorate our house, carve pumpkins and give out candy-even if we only got about 10 trick-or-treaters. That's better than none! Anyway-we had our first Halloween and I think it was a success...we dressed up as Peggy and Al Bundy from Married With Children!


Another thing that I've been thinking about lately is my career path. It's a tough pill to swallow every month as I am paying my student loans and realize that I am probably only putting about 25% of that specific education to use. Before I graduated I knew that if I moved home, my odds of actually having a career in advertising or public relations was pretty slim to none, but that was a risk I was willing to take in order to be close to my family and the one place I truly love, St. Mary's County. But now, like I said, it can be hard to deal with, but that's just something I'll have to get over. In fact, I've never been more ready or willing to try and pursue something non-traditional in my life when it comes to my career. I was telling my mom just the other day that I am good at "stuff", how do I make a business or career out of "stuff"? And just what do I mean by stuff? I love organizing, simplifying, decorating, cleaning, making things look pretty, anything classic, planning themes for parties etc. That is my "stuff", so how do I make that happen? Your guess is as good as mine (and much appreciated!;) Since I was young I knew I wanted to be a stay at home mom some day, and as I get older, I've realized that it's hard for families to only have one bread winner and that for a mom to contribute, but still spend the ample, quality time she desires with her children, her own business or work from home business would be the best way. I'm just planning ahead here people :)

So I must mention another thing that is coming up very quickly that I am so overly excited for, I'm almost embarrassed to admit it...New Moon - the movie comes out on November 20th and I've already got my tickets! I'm still in the process of reading the final book from the saga (Breaking Dawn) but absolutely LOVED New Moon and am so excited to see the movie version...I've even developed a small crush on the under-aged Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black) in addition to the beauty that is Edward Cullen (Robert Pattison). I mean look at them, who could resist?
