Blurbs, because I apparently don't have anything important to say

Hi, folks! It's been two weeks since the last time I said anything. Longer since I said anything important. I do need to get better at this whole consistency thing.

Life is mainly back on track after the month-o-suck. Just busy. 

In the meantime, here are a few short points of my interest.....

I saw 'About Time' this weekend. Go.See.It. It's wonderful. Charming, funny, sentimental.... Just adorable.


Speaking of Rachel McAdams, there are rumors of her and Ryan reuniting. I'm crossing fingers that it is true.

This cute little buzzfeed exhibits why they are meant to be together.... http://www.buzzfeed.com/mackenziekruvant/ryan-gosling-and-rachel-mcadams-forever


My work FINALLY got me a decent phone. I've been stuck using a first generation Blackberry for 5 years.

Thanks to some finagling from our CFO, I was able to get a brand new Hot Pink IPhone 5c. It's glorious.

I wanted a cute display of my work perks for the cover of this phone. Shutterfly actually does have the option of getting a case with a liner (adding a layer of protection to what would otherwise be just a pretty piece of plastic). However, the design options they had weren't really what I had in mind.

I found exactly what I was looking for on Zazzle, but their cases didn't seem to be very protective.

That is where PicMonkey came in. I basically recreated the design I liked (with a few changes) in PicMonkey and then saved it as a jpg. Then, I went back to Shutterfly and used the option of just uploading one picture as your case background. In just a few short days, I shall have my customized-just-the-way-I-want-it phone case.....

It is ridiculous just how excited I am about a phone case.

Also, I'm not receiving any sort of compensation from Shutterfly, PicMonkey, or Zazzle. I wouldn't mind some free cards or a photo book, though, Shutterfly.


I feel both ahead of the Christmas game and behind it. I've already crossed several people off of my list in the present department (when usually I do not buy the first gift until Black Friday) and I have a set of cards already (thanks, Minted). However, I still feel like I'm playing the rat race game.


Running. I need to do more of it.

I also need to do some sort of weight training.

I just feel blubbery. Not good.
