Back to Blogging & Updates

I have not been on my blog or done any kind of update for 2 months now - which is rare for me. But I have been so busy and since I am now doing social media for 2 companies, I don't have much blogging energy left for own personal blog. (As I am typing this hubby just said "You're actually doing your blog?!?!) I know it's been a while when he's saying that! He used to give me heck about how often I was on my blog.

I love blogging and updating my own personal page, but when things get so busy, it becomes and chore and I've decided that I will do it when I have time, but I'm not going to stress or worry about it if I don't!

That said - some good things have been happening at The Nabors house! M got a promotion!! It has been something he has been working towards for a while and when he found out a few weeks ago I was just SO happy for him and for us! I am so thankful!!

The day I got the call that M got the job, I ran around looking for a new leather laptop bag for him to take to work. I have been wanting to get him one for a while and I was on a mission! I finally found one, got it wrapped then went looking for some nice pens! I got him some super nice pens that write like a dream. I also planned on taking him to dinner that night to celebrate! We went to a fab place here called Mesquite Chop house and enjoyed great food and drinks!

I have also taken on a new project for along with my job at the magazine. I am doing some Corporate Styling for a company and that along with my work for the mag is keeping me quite busy!!

Before M started his new job - he had a week off and we enjoyed that week running around and going to a local festival. We never have free time to do those types of things and so we really enjoyed that time together!

And while I'm uploading a few pics - here are more from the past month . . .

{before heading to a reception for friends of ours who recently got married in Napa Valley}

{The couple who got married are middle aged and have everything but I still wanted to get them something, so I put together a "Napa" themed basket for them. Their reception had a wine theme so I made an "m" for their last name out of wine corks, bought some cooking oils from Napa Valley (they like to cook), wine glasses and a great candle. I hope they liked it!!}

And over the weekend, hubby and I went to dinner with some good friends of ours! I tried a new look and did a nude lip - still not sure about it, but think I kind of liked it for a change!

The only other update I have is that my parents are moving to DALLAS and I'm so excited!! My Dad got a promotion and so they are relocating! I'm so happy because they will now be only 7 hours away instead of 13, and it's Dallas!! Can we say SHOPPING?!?! So looking forward to it!!

That's all for now! I'm afraid I may not be very good about leaving comments these days, but I'll try my best. I know that if I'm not leaving comments on other blogs, I may not get many comments in return, but that's A-OK!

Hope everyone is doing well! I have missed all my sweet blogger friends!!
