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 #205: About Me


I have no idea how often I will escape to this place, but since I recently added this ol' blog address to my Instagram Profile, I thought maybe I should dust her off and welcome any new readers.

I have so many thoughts rolling around in my head CONSTANTLY that maybe this would be a good spot again to release them, and keep me from online shopping too much during my lunch break ;)  I hear a faint AMEN from my husband.

Anyway, the title of my blog may lead people to make snap judgments about me or my beliefs, which is unfortunate, but also the society we live in at the moment.  First, it created a sort of catchy blog name, and I liked it.  And, yes, I am a conservative, but that label has sooooo many different meanings depending on what media outlet you last listened to so I thought maybe I would use this post to re-introduce myself to old friends and share a bit about how I have grown in the last few years.

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 #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 …
