November Wrap-Up

I know, I know. This is a whole week late. But I’m currently sitting at a coffee shop, eating beignets and drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows in it. Jeromy is sitting for his last section of the CPA exam, I just submitted my final presentation of graduate school, and life is wonderful. So cheers to more posts this month, more books being read, and more time to think about the things going on in the world!

November in One Word: Pup-Infatuated (Obviously.)

My Favorite Memories in November 2014:

  • Going back to work full time… Yes, it’s a favorite. It feels great to be back in the classroom and productive again.
  • Finding out that Kay is having another little boy!
  • Helping Jeromy study for that last section of the CPA Exam. One. Last. Section.
  • Giving that final presentation in my capstone class
  • Getting to know (and love) 85 eighth graders
  • Thanksgiving at a restaurant for the first time ever
  • Obviously, all of the playtime with the puppy dog, and watching Addy and him become BFFs

Books I Read this Month: 

  • Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta (Review)
  • Wild by Cheryl Strayed (Review)
  • Matched by Ally Condie

In Case You Missed It (Best Posts from November):

  • My Future and Why I Refused to Set Goals for November
  • Books I’m Itching to Re-Read

New Obsessions:

  • Organizational Things. Boxes and Folders and Shelves and Crates!
  • The Finale of Scandal and How to Get Away with Murder
  • Cooking a gumbo big enough to feed an army, then eating leftovers for a week.

3 Things I’m Sad to See Go with November:

  • Couch Days with the Pets
  • Graduate School (What what!)
  • Weekends without Plans… Hello, Holidays!

    3 Things I’m Looking Forward to in December:

    • Graduation from the MBA Program! Eek!
    • All things Christmas and family and friends
    • Jeromy (hopefully) being done with the CPA Exam!

    Favorite Quote from a Book I Read this Month:

    “I knew that if I allowed fear to overtake me, my journey was doomed. Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told. I decided I was safe. I was strong. I was brave. Nothing could vanquish me.”
