Guess who's back? Back again...

Well, well, well.  It’s been pretty quiet around these parts and though I do apologize for my absences and for saying that I’m going to blog more and then not doing so, I feel like we all (or most of us, anyway) have been struggling with the blogging blues lately.  The fall and winter months have been flying by so quickly that it’s still a shock to me that 2015 is only a few weeks away!  (YIKES!!)

With the reality of the new year being so close, I feel like it’s about damn time that I put my blogging butt in gear and go out with a bang.  That being said, I’ve got a few sponsored posts coming up this week as well as 12 days of giveaways from the 21st to the 1st to carry you through the new year.  Nothing too crazy, just a few little gifts to show my appreciation for your continued support and friendship throughout the year.  The values and type of prizes vary but they’re all items that I’ve tried and loved – so you know they’re good.

The past few months have been absolutely hectic but I'm hoping to do better once the craziness of the holidays have passed.  Since we've all been in this blogging funk, let's dip our toes back into this whole blogging thing together by sharing a quick update on what we've been up to.  Here's mine:

- Trace had his last surgery and is doing wonderfully!
- Chloe has been excelling in school and is now reading at a 2nd grade level.
- Aniyah started volleyball this quarter and though she started off rough, she's shown major improvement and I love that she has sports to keep her motivated and active.
- I've been working out here and there and have a lot more energy throughout the day but I'm working on a regular schedule to keep myself motivated.
- Joey started coaching little league and he loves it - especially since all the kids love having him as a coach.

So that's my update.  What's yours?  Anything exciting happen lately?  What have you been up to?


  1. Well well, look who it is :) I feel like a lot of people have stepped back from blogging or quit completely so it is nice to have someone come back!

  2. Nice to see you around again, you have been missed. I have been slacking on blogging consistently as well. The winter makes me lazy, that is the best excuse that I have anyway. Happy to hear your family is up to great things too!

  3. Heeeeeyyyy girl! You're planned posts sounds awesome! Can't wait to see what you're giving away/your favorite things! What's up with me-- finished Christmas shopping last week, mailed out cards this week, and just have to make some scarves & another batch of cookies and I'm done. Yeaaaa. Feels good to actually be able to enjoy the season this year. Last year, I was definitely stressed out.

  4. Glad to see you back!

    Blogging is a lot more time-consuming than one would think. Sabbaticals are just necessary sometimes, especially for those of us with children.

    What's going on here? I started art journaling, which is something I have completely fallen in love with. Like, it's changing my life in ways I've never imagined.

    Other than that, just taking care of the kiddies, suffering from sleep-depravation and blogging.

    A friend and I started a link-up called Write or Die Wednesdays. It's pretty small at this point, but we've built a tight-knit group of regulars :). It's a lot of fun too.

    Looking forward to seeing what you've got going on!

  5. Glad your update is full of all positives! I don't blame you for being MIA though- it gets busy this time of year and I don't even have kids!

  6. I hear ya, it's easy to step back from blogging once in a while. Happy to see you're back :)

  7. You're back! YAY! My updates include working out to Blogalites for the last couple of weeks. Check her out on youtube, she does these quick 6 minute workouts which are super fast, and doable even for someone who's busy! And I've been seeing this great guy lately as well. :)

  8. Glad your back and glad to hear he had his last surgery and is doing great! I too have been up and down and Im now starting to kick into full gear again!
