Days go by...

Where in the world have I been for the last 6 months!?!  Not sure if anyone is still hanging in there (even my mom:), but I'm going to catch you up anyway.  

Most of these initial pics are from Instagram, which I freaking love!  Michele, my awesome friend from TX, suggested I start using it and now I'm addicted.

We haven't done anything too exciting in the last few months...still loving my Birdie.  I'm afraid I am officially becoming a cat lady, as I got a few cat specific Christmas gifts.  So, so scary.
It's just so hard not to gush over your cat when she is the most adorable thing ever.

I mean, look at that face!
Plus, she has awesome upper body strength as she likes to hang on the door begging to be let in!
See...she truly is awesome...

Went to a few work conferences...
Apparently, I like to stay hydrated or maybe I'm a cup hoarder.  I think it may be the latter.
Cat lady and cup hoarder - where is my TLC reality show?!?

Saw one of my best friends get married...
Her reception was at the Fox Theater in Atlanta.
It was absolute perfection.

AP!  You made the blog!!!

Her bach bash in Asheville was also ah-mazing.

I call this photo...4 girls, 2 days.

Day drinking in Asheville on a food tour with your favs.
Life does not get better than that.

Celebrated Christmas.
Or rather, Christmas fails.
I will have you know this was not my precious Bird.
It was my cheap @#!$^$#^&*!^$ tree stand, which I now hate.  Hate. Hate. Hate.

Don't worry - we recovered.

Drink some, er, lots of champ.

Ate the best pimento cheese you can buy.
Seriously, find this stuff.

Did some decorating.
Can't wait, wait, wait to show y'all some before and after pics.  

Read some really good books.
This one is a tear jerker!  And it was about dogs - see there is still room in my heart for more than one animal....
Plan to share more of my reads later this weekend.  Stay tuned.

Did some traveling.
More on that later too.

Seriously, the best thing about traveling/flying is the Sky Mall magazine...
You should not be able to put a price on these gifts.

Well, that is all for now.  I promise to be back soon.  Lots more to discuss.

Ps.  If you haven't already, check out Suri's Burn Book on Tumblr.
Its my new fav blog.  Hands down.
Thanks MKY for the suggestion.   I heart you - and the donkeys send their love.  Miss.

So I found that exact brand of pimento cheese at my grocery up here in MD and about fell over it is so good! Love having a little taste of the South. I just bought The Art of Racing in the Rain- and am looking for some new reads as well.

Happy New Year! And welcome back!
