Conversation #12: Long overdue shout-outs!

I had some issues with blogging a while back, and I knew it would cause my number of followers/readers to suffer.  However, some of my great blogging friendships suffered to, and it was my fault.  I just want to give a few shout-outs to some bloggers that I have known for most of my blogging career, and I haven’t been able to comment on their blogs lately.  I usually have to do most of my commenting on my phone, and embedded comments don’t work.  I’m so sorry to those of you I have neglected!

First – Preppy 101.  You are one of my favorite bloggers ever.  I LOVED your daughter’s wedding.  So beautiful!  I love reading your blog because it somehow just comforts me.  I’m sorry I haven’t been able to comment lately.  I still read and love you!

Next – Jennifer at Diary of a Southern Belle.  So I totally fell off the fit wagon and keeping up with you on that.  I’m trying again though.  I’m so excited for the wedding plans, and I LOVE the sewing projects.  I actually made one of those McCall’s day dresses too (can’t remember the number right now).  Anyway, I really miss leaving you comments!

Last, but certainly not least – Cole at All the Small Stuff.  You have always been so supportive and comment even when I haven’t been around for weeks.  I have loved watching your house search, and thanks for being a great blog friend.  Sorry I have neglected you!

To any other bloggers I have neglected (which I know there are), I’m so sorry!  I love my blog friends, and I’m finally feeling a bit more regular with blogging again.  I’m trying to make a little time each night for fun things I enjoy instead of cleaning and household chores every evening.  Anyway, I hope you are all having wonderful weeks!

You're such a sweetheart! Thank you so much for the shout-out. I miss seeing your comments, but life happens, and sometimes we all don't get to comment as much as we'd like! :-)

You are so sweet! I have fell off the fit wagon too! That is probably not the best since I am getting married next year, but I am going to try to get more consistent with working out again. Don't feel bad for a minute that you don't comment! I am horrible at leaving comments! I just never seem to have the time to comment on all the blogs I want to comment on. Plus my computer died! I ended up buying a new Mac, so I am trying to get better at it again! Sorry for neglecting you as well!

Thank you so much!! You are such a sweetheart! I have been horrible about commenting lately also. I read and think about what I would comment and then just move on ;-) Glad you liked the wedding pics. I'll have more. :-) Now that the wedding is over, I hope to be a better reader/commenter!! xoxo

Conversation #114: Wardrobe Checklist (and retail detox update)

I read something a while back that sort of spurred me into thinking I needed to do this whole retail detox thing.  I'm just going to get it out there - it has been way hard for me and I'm super embarrassed and disappointed by that.  I did well for the first two weeks, and then I got into this buying and returning things habit because I felt bad after buying it.  I told myself that I could still buy things, but only with extra money I earned from ebay.  That worked for a while too, but then I caved to the Lands' End Canvas sale last weekend.  I bought three tees, a skirt, and a cardigan.  I think that all but maybe one tee will be going back and hopefully I can stop this extra shopping. 

Okay, back to the "thing" I read...

It was an article in Real Simple magazine targeted at helping you never buy the wrong thing again.  It has great tips in it, and the wardrobe checklist it includes really brought it all back home to me.  I started going through the checklist an…

Conversation #204: My Jesus...

Oh Facebook and social media of all kinds...we have a love hate/relationship.  Lately, these days, I feel it is more hate only because I allow myself to be depressed by things I see.  I recently told someone the other day that I had lost faith in humanity, and then it hit me, that is exactly where I should be.  We are a fallen people in a fallen world, and I should have NO faith in humanity.  Why did that take me 30 years to figure out?

So there has been a lot of political/social stuff swirling around, and division among Christians, and I hate it.  Like I said, I have no faith in humanity and realizing that was a good reminder it should ALL be in the Lord.  Even though there are definitely things going on in this world that reject the truth of the Gospel, Jesus, the thing that scares me the most these days is the phrase I alluded to in the title: "my Jesus wouldn't believe this" or "I can't follow a God that would say that" or "I just don't believe…

Conversation #203: So I married my mom

I don't know if people say this to men, but I heard a lot while growing up that girls tend to marry someone like their dad (I guess good, bad, or ugly).  I don't know how true that really is, but relatively early on in our marriage, my husband and I realized I married my mom.

This doesn't mean my husband is feminine or my mother masculine, but to say that they seem to be the same person.  I am definitely more like my dad personality wise so it probably make sense that I married someone more like my mom.  Now I will say my mom, being an actual woman, generally makes her a bit more empathetic and understanding to the eccentricities of being a woman.  I don't think any man, my husband or otherwise, will ever be able to understand the intricacies of being a woman. However, I also feel like he can talk to my mom, and being that they have both lived with me and seem to speak the same language,  can benefit from her wisdom and knowledge of co-habitating with me and enlighten …
