Blank Space

Recently I've been struck with the dreaded sickness all bloggers hate -- writers block

In other words, I have been very uninspired recently. I think the month of January typically does this to me. I get sick of the dirty snow, I am tired of sitting inside doing nothing, there are only so many girl scout cookies I can eat while watching movies, and the lack of Vitamin D leaves me feeling like the most boring human alive. Basically January does a lot of good things for me ;) 

I also blame this budget I put myself on in 2015. Do you know how dull life is when you don't frequent Target every other day? Exactly. The struggle is real my friends. 

However, instead of dwelling on how lame I am [it's true], I'll dive into what I have been upto in life recently and maybe it will prompt a thought or funny story or something that doesn't suck. 

+ Shawn and I went to church for the first time in freaking ever last Sunday and I bawled like a baby. Like straight up ugly cry. I was trying to hide my face from everybody but I couldn't. The good news is all sorts of other hormonal women around me were also crying so I felt 14% normal. Do you know how beautiful it is to watch people publicly display their choice to follow Christ? Man that stuff gets me. It's good, really good. 

+ My sister and I took her daughters out for a girls night this past weekend. The selfie stick was in tow and before I knew it I turned around to find them using it all by themselves in the backseat of the car. My favorite quote of the night was when we were at Charming Charlie's and my 4 year old niece was trying to pick out her purchase and declared "It's all just so beautiful - I think I need to go to Dollar General instead". 


+ My doorbell just rang and this is what was sitting there waiting for me. God bless you Stitch Fix, I can't wait to try these beauties on and show em' off to all of you. 


+ Anybody else start singing T Swift after reading the title of this post? Good, me too. 

+ I have to apologize to anybody who is following me on Pinterest [as I passively insert a link to my Pinterest account so you can follow me] . We are in the process of planning our bathroom remodel and I have been knee deep in all things tile, vanities, and a bunch of other dreamy things that will never happen. Also, if you have an 8,000 square foot master bathroom you most likely aren't human. Just throwing that envious statement out there. 

+ I am considering hosting another #1800MinuteChallenge for February and March. Anybody else interested? If so, comment below and I'll get that shaz together and we will get our booties in shape together. 

+ It felt really good to just sit here and type out anything that came to mind. Thank you for that. And if you didn't read a single word, well -- glad one of us has a life. [hint: it's you].

  1. Yes, a million times in agreement with the over-abundance of laziness and the great NEED for another 1800minutechallenge. I did so well on the last one, blowing it out of the water with nearly 2500 minutes. I need more of your inspiration in my life. And I need to get off this damn couch. Kamden is napping and here I sit, watching Housewives of Beverly Hills. Those women have gabillions of dollars and housekeepers. I, on the other hand, do not. There is a family of dust bunnies in the corner of the living room that either need to pay rent or be kicked out. Yes, the struggle is real. :)

  8. #1800 is def in the cards and needed at the moment. Make yourself feel better about not being at Target everyday, if you were Canadian it would be a for real forever sad little story.

  17. I've been feeling the same way! I was determined to get back to a consistent blogging schedule but just feel like I draw a blank everytime I open my laptop. Looking forward to the #1800minutechallenge and hearing about your stitch fix!

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 :)
