Kristen Lately. . .

Christmas was great, I enjoyed spending time with my mom and grandma. We baked cookies and just got to hang out all together, which is too rare these days. Then I spent time with my dad and we even went sledding -- SO MUCH FUN!!!  : )

New Year's Eve, well that's a whole other story! J and I had plans to drive down to our hometown and play cards against humanity and ring in the New Year with our best friend and his family. I woke up feeling just awful. Full blown sinus mess, I was sneezing and sounded almost as terrible as I felt. But I convinced J I was okay enough to go, I really didn't want to be a party pooper; so got bundled up and started towards the highway. My mom called and said a guest she just checked in at the hotel said if a person didn't have 4 wheel drive they were crazy to travel in this weather! He was right, the closer we got to the highway the worse the road conditions got. We made the call to turn around and spend the night at home resting being lazy and safe after all. . . I am finally beginning to feel better.
Jobby-Jobs: At this rate, any job in my field will make me more than happy. I got a call from the background investigator assigned to me through the county jail, they're still moving forward with me as part of the hiring process . . .*fingers crossed* And I also have an interview Monday tomorrow morning for a Parole Agent Position. What a killer first job out of college? I can't even imagine...but I truly want it and I'm hoping for the best!  Then J also got a call from the Sheriff's Office, he did really well on the national dispatchers exam and they want to interview him!!!! I am so excited for him. He's such a hard worker and while he actually has a full time position in his field, the company he has worked at for two years and currently works for is just not where he wants to be. Soooooo, fingers crossed that 2014 is finally our year. . .  I have a sneaking suspicion that it will be a fantastic year for the two of us ; )

My birthday is January 13th. Yayyyyyyyyyyyyy.
I never know what my plans will be, but one thing I can count on is crazy weather!
This year? The snow storm came early and I hope there isn't going to be a repeat the week of my bday. . .
Holy cow! Basically everything is closed already, for tomorrow!
Every school, colleges included, banks and many other businesses.
Ohhhh, Michiganders. ahaha 
I know the southern states are freezing their arses off in the chilly-for-them weather, but this arctic mess is no joke!

Wind chill temps in the negative double digits?
So much snow cars are stuck in the middle of the road?
Multiple cities issuing state of emergency and asking for help to remove snow?
Governor Snyder and the Michigan State Police issued a statement/warning saying do not venture out if at all possible...

Yep, and I love the Mitten state! I mean, I don't always love the cold temps and I may complain about shoveling or even wish for Spring to come early but I would sure miss all this snow and cold if I didn't get to live and experience this season every year!

So that's all I got for this post, hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday evenings! Stay warm, friends

<3 KC
