Happy New Year!

It's been quite some time since I've been around here! Let's play catch-up:

Last semester was quite hectic as was the beginning of winter break. I worked a ton and crocheted my fingers off trying to finish a christmas present for Chris's brother. I decided over the summer that I was going to crochet a 1-up mushroom blanket for him.

I made a friend over the summer and then parted ways with her a few weeks ago. I'm not going to go into too many details but we basically had different priorities and ways of treating others. She is a terribly needy person and to be frank, she stressed me out.

I start my last semester in a week! I'm only taking 9 credits because that's all I need to graduate!!!!!!!

Chris and I welcomed a baby girl into our family in early October.... Her name is Trinket and she is a short-hair Chihuahua. She was given to us by one of Chris's co-workers. She is smaller than the cats but they get on famously.

Anything else??? Oh, Chris and I did a bit (a lot) of rearranging around the house. Maybe when it's settled down I might post a mini tour of our little house.

Chris and I spent New Year's Eve at Epcot. We had way too much fun dancing and not so much fun trying to squeeze through the hoards of other people from one country to the next.

I don't plan on taking such a big break from blogging in the future, but I almost didn't come back. I feel like a lot of bloggers are just fluff. It's hard to figure out who's in it for the creative release and who's just in it for the money. Yep, I said it. Sure, it would be great to have a ton of sponsors and blog full time but I would rather my little bit of the internet be more than just fluff so from here on out I don't wanna read someone else's fluff and you won't find the fluff here. If I like something I will share it, but I will not write about something because I want others to think I'm cool.

Speaking of cool, Who likes Shabby Apple? I received an email today about a sale for 20% off. I forgot I was an affiliate! It's clearly been awhile... Check out the side bar for the button.

Anyhoo, the blog is getting a much needed makeover, so bear with me. How was everyone's holiday? I'll try to post some real photos next time. I hate having to post IG ones because I really do know how to work a real camera!
