I'm Addicted To Everything But Blogging. Maybe.

Let's talk for a moment about how hard it is to get back into "blogging mode" after being in "vacation mode". It's not hard.
It's impossible. 
And because I am in no mood to try to "overcome the impossible", I'm not going to.
Instead--I'm going to leave you with a few (okay a lot) of pictures from my families recent getaway to Michigan. I'm also going to go try to lose the twenty pounds I put on over the past three days.
Wish me luck.

First lets start with our crib for the weekend--
and because no crib would be complete without the liquids....
we brought the liquids. And the solo cups.
Which then caused many rounds of "Red Solo Cup" to be sung for three days straight.
While the majority of us were thrilled to be on vaca...one of wasn't.
Let's look at a typical day shall we? Just say yes. It will make this post run much smoother.

And late late evenings (Okay so like 9 pm...)
And that my friends, are the ingredients to a perfect day.
Except guess what?
I still have 650 more pictures to show you.
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay for addictive personalities.
Here we go.
my conceivers. also known as my parents.
And that's a wrap friends.
I just spent entirely way too long putting together this post.
Which also makes me think that I just defeated the impossible.
So much for that vacation mode I was in at the beginning of this post..
Reality, you have set back in sucker.
Hey---maybe tomorrow I will have something other than pictures to share with you!
Like words or something crazy like that.

Have a good one love monkeys.
ps. If I owe you an email...an answer will come. Eventually. As soon as I lose those 20 pounds. 
Talk to you never. 
pps. Thank you mom and dad for such a fun weekend. Love you both oh so much. 
Let's do it again sometime ;) Like tomorrow maybe?

  14. Looks awesome. Your blog is great. Quit taking credit away from yourself. Plus, I come to see the pictures and feed my online shopping addiction anyways. It's not like every outfit you wear makes me want to go purchase bits and pieces...oh wait yes it does.

  15. Gorgeous pics! It looks like the East Coast somewhere. Where were you?

  16. Did ya'll coordinate the khaki bottoms in the last picture? Looks like Christmas card photo material up in dat joint! (Just tried to sound all gangsta to offset all the preppy-ness but failedddd).

  31. you and your mama = twins. also, that baby is so so adorable..aw. AND also- what lens do you use on your camera?

  32. i could probably find this elsewhere on your blog, but what type of camera are you using?? great pics! also, i saw someone else asked but so curious- what brand purse? is that a michael kors?

  33. Ok, so I read this when you posted it ... but I came back to look at the cry baby and comment. I can not quit laughing at this picture. Which is really mean of me. But you're the one who posted it, so look who's mean now. It really is the best picture. Oh and the gorgeous, fake-looking sky is ok too. Wowza.

  34. I'm going to see Easton Corbin and Luke Bryan in concert tonight! Is it weird that my first thought is yummm Luke and my second thought is Erin and I could be concert besties. :)

  35. Personally I am just pist my legs dont look like yours. And that you and your mom have like twin dogs. That pretty much tickles my fancy!


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
