My Week in Review: Weeks 40-43

Ooh, I’ve been remiss! In my defense: Holiday and Sick. So I’m doing a big Week(s) in Review catch-up here and can then proceed as usual starting next week. Do you guys even *like* Week in Review? I’m coming up on Fashion Schlub’s 1 Year Anniversary and am thinking about switching some things up. I feel like I get more new people liking and commenting on the WiR posts, which I guess is good? I don’t know? I’m just stumbling my way along in Blog-Land. Thoughts?

Gosh, THIS seems forever ago! I’m actually just taking the tree *down* this weekend. Sadface.

1

Janey was helping not helping decorate the tree. Funny little crooked-faced cat.

2

Janey loves sitting with me at the computer. And the sofa. And bed. And the toilet. You get the picture.

3

I’ve been trying to eat more fruit. My reward for eating an orange is a vegan gingerbread cupcake from Batata Cafe in Northport.

4

I love old building advertising. I loved painted signs, I think they’re so much more charming than big plastic or polyvinyl (or whatever those canopy type things you see everywhere now) signs.

5

Meh. I so loved the other book of hers I read, Secrets of a Charmed Life…I was disappointed by this one.

6

The last day of work before vacation is lovely. We’re all so productive and get just tons of work done.

7

I drank a toast to the start of vacation. Alright. I drank a *couple* toasts.

8

Exmas Eve with my baby.

9

Christmas Day. We exchanged gifts at my apartment then went to dinner at our favorite Chinese restaurant and drove around looking at Christmas lights. It was a nice low-key day. I like a low-key holiday.

10

My boy.

11

We drank a toast to the holiday. Alright. We drank *several* toasts to the holiday.

12

I LOVED The Light Between Oceans by M.L. Stedman. Do recommend.

13

Ha ha. Christmas had too many toasts and threw up in their front yard.

14

I spread my friendship wings (ha ha, someone dear to me used that phrase once when I was making a new friend and it has just always stayed in my heart and head) and made a new friend when we photographed one another for our respective blogs – Marcy of Fearlessly Just Me. You can see some photographs I did of her here.

15

That day we shot was cold and super windy and we were out in it all day and I got SICK. This is what sick looks like.

16

I’m trying to tackle some small projects in the apartment this winter. This is one of the cubbies staring me in the face when I sit at the computer and I was tired of it. The top pic is the before, the bottom is after. Ahh. But where did I put those chocolate chips??

18

Which brings us to today and it is snowing out so I’m staying in with some work, some projects and some reading. But not enough snacks. Unless I can find those chocolate chips.

19

Phew! All caught up! Holidays are over, tree is coming down, now the long cold blah winter begins. Will have to make effort to spice things up! Who’s with me??
