Life lately

It's only been eight days, but I feel like I haven't blogged in forever. My apologies!

Last weekend, Aimee and I went to NYC to visit our friend Elizabeth, and it was literally one of the most fun trips I've ever had. 

We drove, which actually wasn't that bad at all because Aimee is a fantastic driver and stayed super calm during NYC traffic. We got there Friday night and had some Mexican food and margaritas, which were fantastic. 

Saturday we were all excited to participate in Santacon, which is where basically everyone in New York dresses up as Santa or something similar and goes to various bars all through the city. 

We. Had. So. Much. Fun. 

We dressed as reindeer, and we were so glad we got to see our friend Rachel for a little while, too! 

Elizabeth and I: 

On Sunday, it was raining and freezing, but that didn't stop us from going to see the Rockefeller Tree, which was so beautiful. It was my first time seeing it in person. 

Aimee was also able to catch up with some of her family who she hasn't seen in awhile, and I was able to see my cousin Jayme, too! 

We left the city Monday, so I've been spending this week trying to catch up on life. I can't even believe Christmas is so soon! I have so much wrapping left to do, so wish me luck!

One of those songs

Every now and then, I hear a song that makes me stop whatever I'm doing and just listen. 

Gary Allan's "Every Storm (Runs Out of Rain)" is one of those songs. The first time I heard it, I literally sat in my car until it was over, and then I immediately ran inside to download it. 

And the best part? You can download a free acoustic version of the song on his website as an incentive to donate to the Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy relief.

The best medicine

Need a few laughs to brighten your day? I'll share my Buzzfeed obsession with you.

You can thank me later. 

The next time you need a few laughs, try googling "worst Twilight tattoos" or watch YouTube episodes of Ellen when she scares people.

You're welcome, friends.
