Heya! Happy Friday! I hope you had an amazing Thanksgiving last weekend and got some holiday shopping done.
Life is so crazy, friends. I had planned on getting this post up earlier this week but my site was having issues. On Sunday night, I realized that my pins on Pinterest weren’t forwarding to my site and then when I’d visit my site directly, it was forwarding somewhere else. I completely freaked out and my husband got on the phone with our hosting right away. I didn’t know how this could happen since we already pay for security on my site.
Well, our host found the issues – I had a couple of unused plugins that were outdated. Since I never deleted them from the backend of my site, they got infected with malware and caused my whole site to do what it was doing. So, we restored my site to 24 hours prior, updated everything, and removed any inactive plugins. Well, my site design was all messed up after that and my comment system, Disqus, was not showing up at all. Such a headache. It took up until Wednesday night to figure out why Disqus wasn’t showing up on my site and to be honest, so much happened with troubleshooting that I can’t even tell you why it didn’t work, haha. BUT!! Thank God my comments are back up and running! The rest of my site design is working again, too.
It was such a hot mess. I was already under immense stress before this happened and after this, I was completely discouraged and exhausted. I knew it’d all get figured out but it was such a weight on me, especially for this time of year.
Other than all of that, life is pretty good! It’s very busy and I have a ton of (mostly) exciting things coming up, so I can’t complain. 😉

WATCHING… Well, I finished Pretty Little Liars! On one hand, I’m glad I’m finally finished with it. On the other, I really miss it! I watched Life Sentence on Netflix the past couple weeks and I was actually a huge fan, which surprised me. I’m bummed there’s no season two. A lot of my shows are pretty much on a winter break now, so I’m open to Netflix recommendations!
EATING… Homemade personal pizzas! They’re quick and easy to make which I love. But, I’m trying to get away from them because I’m still trying to keep eating healthier.
LOOKING FORWARD TO… This season of life to be over LOL. The stress and anxiety have been off the charts lately and it’s not any fun at all, especially this time of year. So, I can’t wait to get through it all. Can it be warm again already?
DRINKING… My favorite holiday drink from Starbucks! Caramel Brulée Latte! Seriously, it’s delicious.
PLANNING… For 2019!! I have lots of projects in the brainstorming works right now – from potential partnerships to more exciting things. 😉
DAYDREAMING ABOUT… A vacation. Seriously, I need one ASAP.
WEARING… This SUPER cozy chenille sweater. I saw it and knew I needed to try it on right away. I fell in love with it. I was so glad it actually fit me how it should! Praise up!! 🙂 P.S. It’s only $24!
– SHOP THE POST –
There’s a ton coming up on the blog next week, like my recap of my day trip to Disney! Keep your eyes peeled, friends! I hope you’re all doing great. 🙂
