If you remember, Kelly and I originally started doing Monthly Musings here on LDB. Once a month we would post our current ramblings or fill you in on life. However as we’ve gotten more in the swing of things with creating and posting recipes regularly, the Monthly Musings have fallen by the wayside. We’ve decided they will now be more of a Quarterly Musings kind of thing. Or basically just whenever we want them 😉
This fall went by so fast, I can’t believe it! Though looking back through pictures I now realize why it passed so quickly: I was so busy! Every weekend was either traveling or a Boise State football game. My job switched to a normal Monday-Friday schedule (I had been working weekends the past two years) yet I could hardly tell a difference because I was constantly doing something.
October came with a trip to my parents in Eastern Washington, where we spent a rainy fall weekend picking apples and making our own apple cider. One of my favorite fall traditions!
Then came a combined trip to Park City, Utah with my girlfriends to celebrate a birthday and then to Salt Lake City, Utah to watch the USC Trojans play the University of Utah. USC lost and it was a quick weekend trip, but a very fun getaway nonetheless.
In case you somehow missed it on Instagram, I was a Crazy Cat Lady for Halloween. It was quite the hit, though things are getting a little out of hand. Cat birthday cards were the theme this year.
November brought my 26th birthday, which was celebrated with my girlfriends by wine tasting. You know you’re getting older when your only birthday request is that you do something that involves not having to socialize with any other people.
My parents and sister traveled to Boise to spend Thanksgiving with me here, and we were joined by my boyfriend, roommate and other friends who had to work the holiday. We then all went to a BSU football game and about froze our faces off. We won though!
December was a whirlwind of cookie baking, shopping and gift wrapping and before I knew it I was headed back up to Washington for Christmas. I spent four days at home and barely did a thing. It was so nice and just what I needed.
Kelly is currently in Ireland (!!!) and will be back after the New Year, so it’s just you and me until then! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and are preparing for a fun New Year’s Eve!
