I promise I’m alive

I’ve been a really horrible blogger lately. So here’s a quick “I’m still alive” post:

  • I love my job. I’m meeting cool people and interacting with a lively community. Also, I took a tour of a landfill today and it didn’t smell bad. Learn something new everyday.
  • TK loves his [new] job. He’s been there about a month and seems to be enjoying it. He works in downtown Little Rock and gets to go to the River Market for lunch sometimes. That makes me a little jealous, although I have some pretty neat food options near my office, too.
  • I’m running my 5K in 11 days. That’s really soon. I’m pretty excited about it. Pics will totally show up on the blog shortly after the race.
  • I just joined Vine. Well, I had a Vine account for a while and never did anything with it until a couple days ago. I also discovered I had several followers already and had no content. My bad. My user name is Angela Spencer [original, eh?] and it’s mostly videos of my sweet Kora Boo for now. Also, she’s getting all grown up. It’s weird.
  • TK and I are figuring out where we want to live. We’re still with family for now but we are anxious to get out on our own. This road has been fraught with learning and disappointment, but I think it’s all for the best. I hope. We’ll be sharing more on that in the next few weeks/months.
  • I haven’t read two books a month. But I have been consistently reading and will have an update on that shortly.
  • I do wish I had taken photos of the cupcakes I made for a Dexter marathon party one of TK’s friends hosted over the weekend. The cupcakes were yellow cake with raspberry filling topped with buttercream frosting and splattered red icing to fit with the Dexter theme. It would have made a great post but I didn’t think about it. Oh well. Next time!
  • I’m doing an online course on how to build a website. We shall see what I learn and if I can apply it.

Certainly that’s not all that’s happened since April 4, but I can’t think of much else to say.


A simple update

Well, it’s a good thing I didn’t make blogging on a regular basis one of my goals for 2013! It’s been a CRAZY few weeks and I haven’t done too much worthy to share. So, in the spirit of blogging, I want to just give you a simple update on life.

  • Our lease is up soon so we’re looking/packing/freaking out a bit (well, that last one might just be me) about what’s coming up in the next couple months. At some point I want to get a small house we can make our own through all my Pinterest finds, but at this point we’re working on paying off our lovely school loans before we start thinking about buying a house. Maybe someday…
  • Kora is growing up so fast! She’s getting her last puppy shots in a couple weeks. We had a bad experience at one vet and found another that we love, so that’s fantastic! She discovered her bark the other day which was quite entertaining. Too too funny 🙂
  • My goals for the year are going well so far! I’ve read two books this month (working on a third) and I will be posting a review of the books I read at the end of every month. I have a crazy span of genre I like, so don’t be too shocked when you see it. We’re eating really healthy stuff recently, too. As far as running that 5K … I’ll get back to you on that.

Other than that life is just kinda rolling along. We’ve had a couple threats of “snow” here in Atlanta yet I have only seen one lone flurry on my commute today. Oh well.
