Well...This is Long Overdue.

To quote the ever-so-wise Holden Caulfield (yep, I did just open my blog post with a quote by a character from the Catcher in the Rye.): "If a girl looks swell when she meets you, who gives a damn if she's late? Nobody."

Soooooo perhaps I have been slacking on my blogging.

Okay, I've definitely been slacking. BUT! In my defense- I've been really busy. Like, really really busy. To the point where I have literally written BLOG!!!!!!!! in my planner every day and by the time I sit down to do so, my fingers threaten to leave me if I make them do anything but sit on Pinterest for hours or hold a nice beer (well, lately it's been a nice glass of wine or vodka soda...of the sacrifices I make for hot-body-ness).

REGARDLESS. Here I am- balancing a really delicious oatmeal/fruit medley on my lap and with a huge cup of coffee next to me...and yes, I do realize that it is 2pm, but I've also been sick all weekend and am finally human enough to move from the bedroom to the couch. Big progression, people. 
Oh. That's another thing. I got really sick this weekend and was not able to do much except gain the superhuman ability to not keep down food (TMI, but whatever.) and watch endless hours of Freaks and Geeks reruns...and Pinterest.

But today, I am going to get back on the train of life and blog away, get a lot of stuff done, workout again(maybe even run if this wind will ENDDDDD.)
Thanks for the inspiration, Pinterest.
Anyways. since I last blogged I've done a plethora of things. I've now lost 6.5 inches from my body (1.5 from my chest, 2.5 from my waist and 1.5 from my hips. Hollatchagrrrrl) and have embraced my no-oven lifestyle. Seriously, not having an oven has also repressed my baking addiction, which in turn leads to no baked goods in and around my mouth. BAM- silver lining.

I've also run a total of 127 miles so far in 2012! Wooo! I think I'm honestly becoming addicted, but I feel like there are worse things to be addicted to than running and Jillian Michaels DVDs. Like drugs... or stamp collecting. I cannot wait until it is no longer wintery/snowy so I can break these bad boys out:

I'm in love. The coozie is perfect, too.
Aren't the beautiful? I just want to wear them all the time. Cuddle with them. Stare longingly at them. Share precious moments with them...etc.

Which brings me to my next point. When you are a good person, people will be good to you. I feel like as blessed as I have been my entire life (THXMOM&DAD) and how many great times I've had, I've also gotten walked over a lot. I'm too trusting and that leads me to being a doormat sometimes- sidenote: I'd probably be a tiedye doormat.

HOWEVER. The world works in mysterious ways. Ever since I've moved to Michigan, I have really seen who my true friends are and realized that people actually miss me as much as I miss them. It's a good feeling. Those shoes are exhibit A. I posted them jokingly on my facebook wall saying how I wanted them...well, the amazing-super-great-fantastical TJ Sellers sent them to me. No reason. Just did. What a gem.

I love nice people.

Oh, I should probably inform you of what I've been doing at my REAL LIFE FULL TIME JOB.
Aka...I got a job offer and I totally took it because Events North is a dream come true and I'm slightly obsessed. I am the happiest girl and while that means that I'll have to put on my big girl pants (and snowshoes...and scarf.) and move to Michigan permanently... I could not be happier.
Events North looking super legit at Winter Wow!Fest. Yes, I am wearing an earflap hat. Judge away.
We just finished up working on Winter Wow!Fest, which went so well! Winter Festivals are seriously just awesome. What was my part in this festival you ask? Well, I was in charge of coordinating all of the snow sculpting teams and making sure all their needs were met. Yep. Snow sculpting.

...that is an 8ft tall snow sculpture my friends. Winter things.

So to sum up this post, my life in Michigan has been super busy, but simply great. I'm starting to find things without my GPS (if you know me...you'll know that my sense of direction is approximately zero percent so this is a HUGE accomplishment) and I am slowly making friends and adjusting to snow-driving. I am also beginning to like running in snow more than in ridiculous heat. 

I am also going on a blogging rampage right now, so there will probably be like...2 or 3 more this week. GET PUMPED.

28. I not-so-secretly love french fries. I could eat them for every meal. I would also be obese, but still...they're delicious.
