I know I was really bad about keeping up with this, but I've been working a lot on my other blog (Universal Jetsetters), trying to up my page views and actually get to a point where I can start monetizing it. So unfortunately, this has fallen behind, but now that I've got a bit of a plan for the other one I should be able to divide my time more evenly.
Thanksgiving was great and it was so nice to see extended family who I haven't seen in a while. And I love to eat, which isn't news, so stuffing my face with all that delicious, yummy food (and wine) was wonderful.
The weather was unusually warm the past couple of weeks, but so far the past couple of days have been a typical winter. Cold, grey, and rainy. It's nice though because I don't like how the past couple of weeks have been so warm (it doesn't feel like it's almost Christmastime!).
We finally have a somewhat plan for what we're doing in the coming months so I'm pretty excited for that. We're going to be here until the 23rd, but then we're going to go back to the UK for Christmas, but then are coming back again for our family friends' wedding party on New Years' Eve. Then we'll be in the US until the 7th and will then head back to the UK. Through a combination of miles, points and good deals we really haven't paid much at all for all of the flights (thanks also to a generous Christmas gift from my parents). I also got a part time job working in the shoe department at Macy's for the holiday season, so while we're just here hanging out at least I'll be doing something productive with my time. It'll be good though because I love shoes and I get a 20% staff discount, and that's pretty cool.
Unfortunately, I got very wrapped up in the sales this weekend and bought a coat and 2 pairs of pants. The coat was a Christmas gift from my parents, but we didn't know what size I was so we ordered 2 in a different color each, but then this morning we woke up to find a bunch of fashion bloggers had reviewed it and it's now sold out of every size in every color. Glad I ordered when I did! Hopefully one of them fits though since I most likely won't be able to order another. I will let you know when they arrive!
Other than that I haven't got a whole lot to report on, so I'll have an update on things later this week.
