Oh yeah, I have a blog….

It’s been over a month now since I’ve wandered over to LJ. Oops. My apologies for completely failing to blog last month (and keep up with all of your blogs – I’ll do my best to catch up soon). It’s not that I didn’t want to blog, in fact I had several ideas for blog posts, I just never acted on them. Really, it feels like September 1st happened and then suddenly it was September 30th just like that. I didn’t realize how quickly time was getting away from me until it was gone.

So since I’ve failed to do all my usual postings, I’m just going to do a quick summary of September all in one post. I promise to make it as short as possible.

In September I….

  • Threw my sister a Baby Sprinkle for my 2nd nephew Abel (who’s scheduled to arrive on Halloween!). It was extremely overwhelming in the food prep department (12 hours the day before, 9 hours the day of), but overall a beautiful event. You can see pictures HERE.
  • Got THESE awesome books in the mail. YAY for the return of pre-orders!
  • Read 4 books. I really had hoped to read more, but since one of these 4 books was the size of 3 books there just wasn’t time for anymore.
September Reads

Boys that Bite (Blood Coven, Book 1) by Mari Mancusi
Fathomless (Fairytale Retellings, Book 3) by Jackson Pearce
The Dream Thieves (Raven Cycle, Book 2) by Maggie Stiefvater
Styxx (Dark-Hunter, Book 23) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

  • Wrote 770 words. This is shameful, I know. I’m trying a new tactic this month to get back in my 5K game. Fingers crossed it helps.
  • Listened to a lot of random indie tracks. My favorite Music Friday tracks can be heard HERE, HERE, and HERE.
  • Started training for the Color Run. Mom and I get up at 5am to run before work. It felt insane at first, but I rather like it now – even with my forever aching muscles.
  • Went to the Milburn Orchards with Gideon like last year. If you’d like, you can see pictures HERE.
  • Saw the end of two of my favorite TV shows, Dexter and Breaking Bad. I wrote a reflective piece about show endings HERE.

So that’s basically it. Maybe you didn’t really miss much by my lack of blogging. How was your September?

TV Junkie

I've watched a lot of TV lately.

I don't typically watch all that much TV honestly. I mean, I have a few shows I like, but typically I DVR them and watch them on the weekend. But with a lot of my "regular" shows ending or pausing for winter break recently, I found myself missing TV.

Showtime recently offered a free preview period and I decided to fill my TV void by finally catching up on shows I was seasons behind in (because I do not have Showtime), like Shameless and Californication in marathon style. Both shows, I continued to think couldn't possibly keep entertaining me, but Shameless especially has become such a favorite show it's invaded my dreams.

With all of my Showtime shows caught up on now and the free preview period over, I've decided to finally catch up on Breaking Bad too. Strangely enough, it's another show that I keep thinking can't possibly entertain me enough to keep watching and yet it does. I love when TV proves me wrong.

The Walking Dead comes back on soon, something like 24 days. I can't wait.

Also, in addition to these "big" shows, I've become completely addicted to Property Brothers. It used to just be a thing I'd watch if I just happened to leave HGTV on, but now it's in my DVR cue too.

When did I become such a TV junkie? At least it's not cutting into my productivity at the moment. What are all of you watching?
