Monday Madness

I feel like my life has been nuts the past 6 weeks since I went back to work full time! I am trying to pay the attention to this blog that it deserves, but I think I may be falling below the mark. I think a Monday Madness is in order to get everyone up to speed.

I've been working full time hours for about 6 weeks now. I was supposed to know at the January if my morning hours were going to be a permanent thing, but unfortunately I was only extended until the end of March. I'm still in a "we'll see" phase at work. This got me super bummed and super stressed. I hate things waving in the balance. It totally knocks me off my game.

I am now fighting off my second cold this winter. I hardly ever get sick. I feel like I can't keep these colds away! Nothing's sexier than smearing Aquaphor all up in my nostrils.

The Olympics have started and the Bachelor is half over. It's been an amazing few weeks for TV!

Nick and I do not celebrate Valentine's Day because our anniversary is coming up super soon! We will be celebrating 6 years on marriage on March 1! The traditional gift for 6 years is iron. Anyone have a cute ideas? I'm drawing blanks on gifts. I usually can come up with something creative, but my brain is jammed too full right now.

My dog has been nuts since I stared back to work full time. He has major anxiety issues in the morning, is super rammy at night, and it testing the boundaries behavior-wise. Poor dog.

It's been cold and snowy since before Thanksgiving. OVER. IT.

I got into a car accident last Monday. Ugh, so scary.

I'm so excited to get my first Ipsy Glam Bag this month! You can join in the Ipsy fun too - just click here.

This summer I will be celebrating my 30th birthday! My sister and I are going to Nashville in July and a friend and I are going on a Bahama's cruise in August (she turns 30 a day before me). Vacation can't come soon enough!

City and sand this summer!

I hope everyone else has felt a little bit more control of their life than I have!

Have a great week!
xo, Ashley
