Hey there, Happy Holidays and junk! I've been having these weird headaches, I think they have something to do with my sinuses but I'm not really sure... so been a bit tired and out of it but here I ammmm. Last weekend my fiance and I threw a housewarming party, I of course, drank too much wine in anticipation and felt a little fuzzy throughout it but I sobered up enough for us to play Apples to Apples and overall it was a good time. I've been dying to get my hands on Cards Against Humanity btw, it sounds right up my foul mouthed/dirty minded alley. It was nice seeing everyone and everyone gave the place high praises. I've never planned a party like that before, my previous experience was just having people over for drinks and pizza, this was somewhat the same but felt more "formal" I guess. My nerves were on high alert the day of the party, I always have this fear that no one will show up or that everyone will have a super shitty time. So in anticipation I cleaned the house and organized over the course of 2 days, I wanted the place to look as perfect as I could make it look and it might have been a bit of overkill. I get why so many people turn to entertaining magazines, party planning is freakin' tricky business, I felt so much pressure to make everything perfect and make sure everyone was having a good time. All that aside, I have to say how amazing it feels to be in a place that feels like home though; a place I'm comfortable in, a place I'm not ashamed of, a place I want people to see, and a place where I'm with people who don't make me feel bad about myself. I can't wait till every room is in order but 5 out of 9 rooms ain't bad progress. Only one room has been completely taken over by boxes but we need money and furniture to complete it, all in due time my starfishes, all in due time (this is what I say to myself when I feel stressed out thinking about it). I am especially excited for the future of the patio room in the warmer weather, I have sparklified wine guzzling plans for it, basically meaning I plan on throwing up a ton of Christmas lights and drinking copious amounts of wine within its walls. I might have mentioned these plans before, maybe, probably... most likely. Well, I wanted to share a few pictures of the current progress of the house, the living room/dining room area is the most put together at the moment so onward to the show...

I'm at my Moms celebrating Christmas with my family at the moment, I got a lot of cute stuff for the house that I will share pictures of soon. I hope everyone has a blissful day.

Current guilty pleasure:  As the norm with me, it is hard to choose just one, but I'd have to go for either chocolate chip cookie dough dip or cinnamon swirl bread with duncan hines vanilla glaze. 

Current nail color:
Well my hands are currently naked, I know... what scandal. My feet are in a state of despair, more normal behavior on my part, but my feet are still OPI Ruby Pumps - it is one of my favorite colors. I'm searching for a green sparkly I like, I'm liking green lately.

Current playlist: 
The Sisters of Mercy - "Lucretia, My Reflection" / Project Pitchfork - "Steelrose" / The Frantics - "Werewolf" / Steve King - "Satan is Her Name" / The Neanderthals - "Ghoul-A-Go-Go" / Jill Tracy  - ALL / Adam Hurst - "Ritual" / The Girly Birds - Trespassers William

Current drink:
Lots of water, coke, and iced tea but I've been daydreaming of making rum and coke popsicles. 

Current food:
Does habitually chewing on my finger count as food? The last thing I ate was the cinnamon swirl toast with vanilla glaze, how can you beat cinnamon rolls in under 2 minutes? I'm also eying up the pomegranate I have in the fridge, I wonder if it knows that it is next...

Current Favorite TV Show:
The Walking Dead, Blackout, Killer Karaoke, and Mad Men of course. How awesome has this half of 'The Walking Dead' been?

Current wish list: Round Pintuck Pillow in Purple/Red/Black/All!, Destroyed Denim Jeans, Polka Dot Tulle Dress, Monster High Scaris Skelita Calaveras, Krylon Spray Paint / Many Colors, China Glaze Cast a Spell, Mad Men: Season 5 Blu-Ray, Jill Tracy Audio CDs, Large Iron Skillet - One in the house is not enough,  Entry way table, ornaments, new couch, queen size bed, end table for Jason, enough Christmas lights to stop the heart of an elf!, etc...

Current needs:
A shower? A proper income? Dental care?

Current triumphs:
Moving into and organizing, furnishing, and cleaning our new place. I really love this house even if it needs to be constantly cleaned!

Current bane of my existence:
The swelling I keep getting in my feet, ankles, and legs. It is super annoying and worrisome. 

Current celebrity crush:
Christina Hendericks, which is not a different crush but still a crush, look at her - what a babe.

Current indulgence:
I have been indulging mostly in food that have already been mentioned but in my imagination I have been shopping non-stop, does that count?

Current blessing:
Jason. Hero. Halo. Family. Our place!

Current outfit:
(I'm going to just list the last few things I bought at a thrift store since my outfit is shit) Maroon velvet button up shirt, Black velvet knee length skirt, white and blue plaid button up shirt, pink converse shoes

Current excitement: Maybe thrifting and antiquing later, Jamie and Christina's party tonight, putting up my Christmas tree with my mom and little sisters next weekend, and our housewarming party the weekend after that. December is a busy month.

Current mood:
I'm feeling pretty good, if only my body would cooperate a little more.

Current link: Bearded man serenades Bill Murray with heavy metal.
This is really cute, you should watch it. I hate to do this but my shop is still open and it needs some biters, I mean love, it needs love. >>>>> My Shop.
