Life … and things .. mostly random things

Howdy doooody my dear interweb friends …

Did you miss me? I missed you! A lot. Too Much.

But I’m here to tell you that

  • I haven’t forgotten you
  • I love your faces
  • I want to do a giveaway soon because this girl has over 500 instagram followers and that boggles my little brain!!

So I took a bit of a blogging hiatus; not on purpose … just a life thing. There was a bunch of other stuff I needed to focus on.

My bestie is married. MARRIED! Yes, no longer my right hand-partner-in-crime … also, this officially means we’re both adults … married, responsible for husbands, paying taxes and all that jazz. Kids of the playground, don’t rush this stuff … it’s not as shiny and sparkly as it seems … it has it’s perks … but don’t get blown away.  But it was a love filled, happiness exploding ball of sunshine … aka it was perfection. And, it’s very possible that I ugly cried more at this wedding, than at my own … she was just so beautiful!!

One more wedding to go at the end of this month, and then officially my group of friends will live happily ever after … until kids come along. OMG one of my girlies had a little boy and he’s as cute as a button and I’ve nicknamed him Joe because 1) It’s no where close to his actual name 2) I’m a jerk. But I love his face, and I’m so proud of his mama and papa .. they’re going to be amazing parental units.

I also haven’t been feeling all that jazzy, and I didn’t want to bring that sort of negativity to the blog. Even though summer is supposed to bring about sunshine, happiness, laughter, and extra ice cream sprinkles … it’s just not jiving with me right now …  I think part of why I love blogging is the honesty associated with it, but seriously mixing butter, sugar and anxiety does not produce cupcakes!

But I’m back.

Back and full of inspiration and tons of fun stuff I want to share. I want to know what you’ve done over the summer – have you traveled? WHAT HAVE YOU EATEN!?! How many ice cream cones can you down in one cottage trip … you know, the essentials of life.

Speaking of essentials, can someone PLEASE tell me how to rid the world of stupid mosquitoes … I have enough bites for someone to mistake me for having the chickenpox – one specifically on my neck that makes me look like i’m a 16 year old with a hickey … SO NOT CLASSY!!

They know me so well!!

They know me so well!!

In the next couple of months, you can expect giveaways … tons more cookies … and recipes that are sure to leave you with a slight sugar high. Also, I feel with us finishing the first week of August, I need to do all the summer things and ease us all into back-to-school and then fall.

Ready to throw up a little, my favourite local grocery store already has  pumpkin spiced cookies out … I gagged … and then proceeded to buy 2 boxes. #SorryNotSorry … and I’m still eating all of the strawberries, peaches and watermelon I can wrap my fingers around.

I think that’s enough random mammer-jammer for a while. Happy Friday you gorgeous people!!

Wisdomist Wednesday : Enjoy the Simple Moments

I had such a good night last night.

Nothing fancy, nor over the top.

Just my husband, myself, pjs, good food and a movie.

Mr. LTSL and I watched top gun (Watchin’ in slow motion as you turn around and say….. Taaaake my breath aaaawwwwway), had dinner, and just hung out together at home.

It was perfect. We were completely devoid of our phones/ computers / Ipad blah blah blah technology.

It was nice, and also a good reminder that it’s okay to disconnect from the digital world every once in a while. The world won’t stop, you can catch up on twitter / Instagram/ Facebook in the morning.
