As I Cee It

Archive for the ‘random’ Category

Good morning!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and were able to share the holiday with your friends and family. Our family got together at my sister’s house for the fifth year, and the food was BANGIN’.

I will be heading out shortly to go shopping for Black Friday with my sister. It’s a tradition of ours, and one that we both enjoy immensely. Before I do so, I wanted to give a heads up of what’s to come. I am challenging myself to get back in the spirit of blogging as I celebrate the holidays. I’m calling it the 25 Days of Christmas (you know, like the holiday movies I love that come on ABC Family). Each day, my plan is to share a holiday-related post. I won’t lie to you and promise that I’ll make it. I certainly hope I do. However, the idea of coming up with 25 topics is a bit daunting. Feel free to shoot any ideas my way.

I’d also like to remind you of Small Business Saturday and Giving Tuesday. Most of us that are shopping today will be heading towards the heavy hitters – your Best Buys, Targets, malls – just remember to frequent your local establishments and give back to your favorite charities as well.

There is a lot going on in my world. Is it earth shattering? No. Is it getting heavy for me? Yes. Then one of my BFFs tagged me in an Instagram chain whatsitjiggy. Background: I don’t like chain thingamajigs.

I immediately panicked and texted her about the chain thing. Then I did it anyway. Because I was at least one glass in and thought it would left me up a little.

What am I doing right now, asked @jennifre? Signing up for free courses while drowning the day’s stress in ice cream and white wine. #widn

The end.

My cousin was in from out of town one weekend and because she liked our Instagram pictures from rock climbing, she wanted to go with us. It was up to my sister to inform her of the proper rock climbing attire – she did not do so. When my cousin and my sister arrived at my house, I hadn’t finished getting dressed yet. I was, at that point, in a sports bra and yoga pants.

Me: [Seeing her colored denim and Gucci loafers] What are you wearing?? We’re going rock climbing.
Cousin: Nobody told me what to wear. I didn’t know.
Me: My sister was supposed to tell you so you didn’t come out all super cute and stuff.
Cousin: Well, I didn’t know we were going to be showing off six-packs.
Me: [Looking down at my stomach] Girl. That is not a six-pack, it’s a deep breath.

The last member of the trio that keeps me sane is @toni_with_a_t. As much as I hated the grad school that shall not be named, I can always look back on our friendship as the highlight of that time. Thanks for always being down for whatever ridiculous idea either of us can come up with and for being an incredibly encouraging friend. I am inspired and motivated by your faith, I can only hope to emulate your ability to accept feedback, and I am endlessly amused by the semi-secret hoodrat ratchet chick that lives inside of you. #NationalBestFriendDay
Next! This is my Eebs. She moved all the way to Baltimore so we could hang out. Fine, ok, that was a lie. But! She's still a great friend. @eebs101, I am in awe of your dedication to serving others, I am impressed by your 17 job grind, and I admire your optimism. Thank you for keeping me from going off on people and for helping to expand my thoughts and for accepting the times when I just want to be stubborn and sit in my feelings before I even consider really addressing them. And thanks for being there when I'm ready to do so. To next year's island vacation! (Which will happen cause we need it.) #nationalbestfriendday
It's #NationalBestFriendDay so let me do my shoutouts to the trio. First up is @Jennifre, whose years of service I won't mention cause that'll age us both. Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a fantastic friend over the years. We've both grown as people and in a way that keeps us bonded rather than pulling us apart. I value your honesty, I applaud your creativity, and I appreciate all of our conversations. May the Broadway shows keep a'comin, may we return to Whine & Wines, and may we always remember that we are here to support each other. This one is for you - FOR YOOOOUU! (That's my Principal Frye sketch voice, btw.)
This was an interesting and slightly terrifying experience. Shoutout to my friendtographer @jennifre for her work here and accepting my panic moment when she told me to get back into the clear box hanging off a very tall building so she could get more pictures. #Skydeck #Chicago #WillisTower #SearsTower
