postsecret is a favorite blog of mine.

but lately, there haven't been a lot of secrets that i really loved.
until today.

ah, the holiday season

now that thanksgiving is over, it's official that it's christmas!
this means:

christmas movies and music
holiday drinks and food and such
gift giving
colder weather

which should all make me say yay!!!!

but right now, i'm simply not feeling it.
i'm not sure why.
i just am not in a christmas-y mood.
i decorated a little bit yesterday, but today?
the christmas spirit is not in me.

sad. :(

a life update

i had a friend email me to tell me she saw something about me having a job through the comments here on the little blog and had no idea what i was doing.
and then i realized that it's been a long time since i simply updated y'all on life.
so here goes.

the last time i updated at all about this, i was still unemployed from the move back to the atl from good old bmore.
sometime towards the end of september, i went to charleston to see some friends, go to the beach, and look for a job or something (i was pretty convinced that was where i was headed). the trip, however, confirmed for me that charleston, however lovely and wonderful and fun, was not where i was going. but while i was there, i was given the number of a guy to call who was looking for a director for an after-school program/apartment ministry here in the suburbs of atl. i called him and got an interview.

picture time!

thank goodness it's friday!
and i haven't done a friday favorites post in a long time, so before i get to the pictures, here's my friday favorites for the last several weeks:
*having beauty and the beast on dvd!
*it's cold outside :)
*the holiday season is upon us
*being provided with a job...or two or three
*living near enough to family that when something awesome happens, i can join the celebration
*free work done when the car freaks out

and now...halloween goodness!

the pumpkin i carved....isn't he friendly looking??
and here he is all lit up!

 halloween decor!  isn't this towel so cute??
and lastly, my halloween hot chocolate! don't you love how the little ghost-mallow is kind of waving to you from on top of the whipped cream?
and before i go toda…

a few random tidbits....

1. it is finally chilly enough here to be fall!

2. i'm glad election season is over. really tired of listening to all those blasted political ads.

3. while sitting in meetings today, i looked at my hands to discover they were blue. assuming it was transfer of dye from my jeans, i didn't really think a lot about it. until i got halfway home and saw that they were no longer blue, but normal colored. my hands were blue because i was so cold!!! i don't think that has ever happened before, and that's really saying something.

4. i miss my kids from the j.
