December was a crazy hectic month – between travel (recaps to come!), holiday stuff, family gatherings and being sick like 25 out of 31 days of the month (maybe a slight exaggeration, but I seriously kept getting sick!) I am welcoming January with open arms! So here’s what is currently going on in this world of mine:
Loving: The new year. I love thinking back on 2012 and brainstorming goals, ideas, bucket list items for 2013.
Reading: I did some heavy reading while we were traveling to and from Utah for the holidays. I read Wither and will probably pick up the sequel to start on that – and I read Unwind (which is the first book in my new yet to be named book club). Unwind was really good – a little freaky subject matter but a page turner! I heard the second book UnWholly is even better but I am forcing myself to wait to read it until after our book club meeting.
Watching: Movies! There are so many good ones that came out over the holidays! If you haven’t seen it, Les Miserables was amazing! Everything TV wise has been on hiatus but I am really excited for Girls to start back up, season 2 looks really good. If you don’t already…watch it. You have time to catch up on last seasons shenanigans before season 2 starts. Oh and Shameless is coming back with all it’s dysfunctional glory.
Anticipating: My first MARATHON. In less than 2 weeks I will be running 26.2 miles for the very first time! I am oddly terrified and excited at the same time.
Listening to: Music has been all over the map lately but this song has definitely been a little over played..
Planning: A highly anticipated trip to Europe!! Lance and I decided not to exchange gifts this year (for Christmas/Birthdays) and to go on this trip instead. I’ve been trying to convince him to do a Europe trip like this for 10 years so I literally cannot contain my excitement! We are going to London, Paris, Venice and Rome – so if you’ve been to any of those and have suggestions please share (especially food/activity related ones!).
Working on: Getting in the groove with my new job at work. Right after Christmas I started a new position – same place, but new duties, office location and hours (a TON more hours to be exact). I’m hoping I get this balance worked out soon..I already feel little frazzled.
Wishing: For more SLEEP! I think I averaged about 4 hours of sleep per night all last week. Thankfully the freelance consulting project I was working on is all done (yay!) so this week looks like it will be back to normal.
