My friend Carmen got engaged today and asked if I would be her Matron of Honor (it is so weird typing/saying that). I said yes with the conditions the wedding not be when we might be moving late this coming summer,( what else can you say really if it is an old friend asking you), and I am beyond honored. I will be seeing her next week when I am home to talk to her about what she wants. I'm hoping for a nice bridesmaid dress in chocolate brown from Watters and Watters. The girls dresses we had by them ended up being perfect.

So I know it has been forever since I have blogged. I am now working part time at our local Pier 1. It is saving me money on car insurance and sanity for not having to drive in the snow. We have had some serious snow this winter season. Being from Florida and having spent some serious time in California, I am unused to the cold and snow. I am very slowly adjusting to single digit days. It was in the negatives for most of today. We are being told it will get up into the 30s by this weekend.
On the thesis front it is going slowly and has been a very negative experience on a whole. I need to add some details to it on my next day off of work as well as finish an entirely new chapter and hope it helps get me to the magic number of 50 pages.
The reason I am updating my blog is that I found a really neat Etsy store that I think would be good for people looking for unique holiday gift ideas Luca Chocolate. The owners of the store make the Bacon Box which is various chocolates with bacon as the main ingredient. It seems like a neat idea.
