Matt =)

When my friend Matt and his girlfriend Katie were visiting for Thanksgiving, Matt commented on our DVD collection.  He had noticed that although I had Saw I, II, V and VI, I was missing III and IV. 

See, back in 2006, I made Matt go see Saw III with me in the theater.  He had no desire to see it but being a good friend and knowing I wouldn't go alone and couldn't talk anyone else into it, he sucked it up.  Despite the fact he hadn't seen the first two, he liked it.  And so he started back at the beginning by renting the movies and has followed the series ever since. 

After a particularly emotional day (due to being overwhelmed about career making decisions that will affect the rest of my life...nothing big or anything), I arrived home from work and found a package from Matt.  I wasn't expecting anything so it took me by surprise.  Inside I found the following...

No idea why but I just lost it.  I could barely see my phone as I tried to text him.  The tears would not stop coming.  He just made my day.  He wanted to make sure I had all the movies for a Saw marathon.  Guy best friends can be so awesome and thoughtful.  I suggest you go out and get yourself one.  But don't steal mine!

Thank you Matt.  You are the bestest and I love you.

I'm Back! (For Now)

Sooo...hi!  It's apparently been over a month since I've last posted.  My bad.  I'll make it up to you all with a brand new giveaway starting tomorrow!  Am I forgiven? 

I'd love to tell you all what's been pretty much keeping me from writing the past month or so but as Ashley explains here, there are things regarding your employment that just can't be put out there if you still want to have a job the next day.  I'll sum it up by telling you the following:

I had another job offer.
I really considered it.
I went back and forth for weeks.
I made the decision to stay with my current job (my wonderful, awesome, amazing current job - just in case anyone from corporate is reading this...HI!).

It would have been nice to discuss it all here and maybe get some input from you all but I know I made the right decision for me in the end.  Now hopefully I can get back to my regularly scheduled blogging.  HA!  Like that will ever happen.
