Happy Monday crew, whew we survived Thanksgiving stuffing...I thought for sure I was going to pop, for good. Look I am going to stop the blogger small talk and say it like it is- I am freaking pooped. Mommy bloggers, let alone, Mommy full-time-job bloggers you are truly impressive, I do not know how you do it! No I am not a Mom, no I am not pregnant, but I am currently balancing (or attempting to) a rather packed schedule. Moms of course lead this life always, hence my admiration and praise. Anyway, I chose not to disclose this information earlier for whatever reason, but I have been taking a grad class on top of my full-time job and it has been kicking my ass. Not due to content, I think I am doing pretty well in my class as a matter of fact, but time...man am I lacking time. Thus, my poor poor beloved blog has suffered. I think this photo pretty much sums up my current existence...blurred, tired, pony-tail, no make-up and a blessing of a husband. I promise, by the end of the holiday season I will be back and ready for you! I have some very big news coming your way, so stay tuned and in the meantime please bear with me, slurred prose, scattered posts and all.

  1. Awww I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving and I'm guessing that in being totally stuffed equals an amazing one?! I know what you mean, I'm always in awe over bloggers who manage to juggle life, babies and jobs plus keep to a regular schedule on blog land. I wish I knew their secret.

    Until we hear from you next, take care,

  2. Oh girl, I feel you. I'm EXHAUSTED-- bone-tired. I can't wait for holiday break so I can finally slow down and be at peace.

  3. You're a honey! I'm a full time job mommy blogger and if it weren't for the hours between 10-12 at night, I also don't know how I would do it. I suppose I give up sleep for something solely for me! I love how real you are, posting a vulnerable shot! So cute!!!

  4. Oh my I understand fully! I love my blog it's so fun, but lately I've been thinking- I can't keep this up, I don't know how people do it all! Hope a little break lets you catch your breath, and you feel better soon!

  5. I feel you! Blogging is another job and it gets difficult balancing life and the blog. I use to be very consistent and had a really great habit of blogging regularly, but a couple of bumps in the road lead to weeks of no post. :(

    Keep up the great work! We're all rooting for you!


  6. Oh god I understand you completely - there just aren't enough hours in the day!
