Daydreams Turned to Nightmares!

How can something so seemingly good bring me this much stress?!
There I was, sitting at my desk at work daydreaming for a moment about all the fun that will be occurring in the next couple weeks. I was actually alone in my office with a smile pasted on my face {thank God no one decided to pop in at that moment!} because I just couldn't contain the excitement! At this time next Friday I would be graduating with a bachelor's degree in communication, getting ready for my big party and about to hop on a cruise ship. How much better could it get! hit me. Just as quick as the smile appeared on my face, it vanished.
Oh. My. Gosh. I have to lose weight! Like, now! In an instant I just realized I would have to wear a bathing suit in the middle of winter and I'm definitely not looking my hottest right now! All these insecurities just turned up from out of nowhere and I almost wanted to cry. It was horrible, I tell you, horrible!
So you wanna know how I turned that frown upside down? I decided I'm just going to do the best I can in the 2 weeks that I have left. I joined a gym ASAP and it's only salads for this girl from now until the cruise! Call me crazy, but my daydreams have stayed positive ever since I made that decision :)

 I'm Liking: Christmas time is in the air {and the music} everywhere! I love that every store that I have walked into lately has the Christmas tunes blaring! Some of my all-time favs are:
All I Want for Christmas Is You – Mariah Carey

White Christmas – Louis Armstrong

O Holy Night - Celine Dion

and of course...Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!
I'm Liking: My house is decked out in holiday decor! Danny even strung lights on the plant shelves throughout our living room! Stay tuned tomorrow for a picture update of our home!
How wonderful would it be to live in a neighborhood like that?!
I'm Liking: today I actually got to wear a scarf to work...and I looove scarves! I have a huge variety but living in the Sunshine State doesn't really give me much opportunity to dress up in my winter-wear!
As always, I'm Loving my hubster Daniel!
Have a terrific Tuesday!
love always,

Love the new blog design so Christmasssy! First of all, I have been there girl, I feel like that eveey so often and am SO excited but yet the cruise is stressing me out too bc I have not lost the weight I have wanted to since I've been so busy trying to finish school these past few months and working. So keep thinking positive and about the great accomplishment we are about to have in just a few short days then the celebrations! xo
