A Surprise for Me this Morning

When you've resigned to the fact that you are a once or twice a quarter at best blog poster, have a good 30,000 hits or so to your blog - EVER - and only do so because your relatives and friends beg you to do so after seeing your latest creation on Instagram, you kinda just let your blog slide.
(Hidden message: Follow me on Instagram because I'm far more interesting over there.)
But when a hilarious, consistent, and wildly popular blogger by the name of Taylor gives you some unexpected but very welcome publicity, and you get the notification on your Twitter feed, what do you do?
You run your butt out of the gym locker room as soon as you can slap some mascara and clothes on, hair in a wet knot (blogger knot?  Maybe I am a real blogger?)  and write a stream-of-conscious post so you look like you're actually sort of relevant.
This is me and E from a couple of weeks ago on our fabulous trip to California - this specifically was from a dear friend's wedding in San Diego; we also visited LA, Santa Barbara, Santa Monica, Malibu, and Coronado Island.  An amazing ten days that I wish I could live over and over.
Relevant post coming soon, I guess, but this is to say HI and please check out my other posts, you'll love them.  And please GFC me - I'm probably the only person left out there that actually uses Google Friend Connect but hey, what can I say.
Another note - I did the Whole 30 at the prompting of Ashley Paige, last month and I totally loved it.  I will recap this later this month!  (Well, it's the 27th, but you know what I mean.)
So I definitely pumped this post out in record time, so I guess I have no excuse not to write more often. Thanks, Taylor, for the swift kick in the butt, and great chilling with you again!
Thanks for visiting!


  1. Holy Smokes! 30,000 views!! I've been blogging for almost a year and I am lucky if I am pushing 6,000 by tonight! Lol. See, you're totally relevant, Good for you, girlfriend! I love Taylor and enjoyed our Blogger Happy Hour together. I am excited to see more posts from you too! I totally love California, especially that area. oxox, Amanda

  2. 30,000 is nothing to scoff at! I get super excited when I hit a blog milestone or get a shout out too, so I understand the feeling :)

    Another Beautiful Thing

  3. That is so fun! Congrats on getting featured!!!

  4. Hey, I just followed you (not literally. Fear not.), so keep writing and creating, please. My kitchen is also a disaster and our laundry room and pantry are one and the same, hence we coined it the paundry room, and it is teeny tiny and there are six people in our family and there is nowhere to put the dang food. Thankfully we're renting for just a few more months and better kitchen is high on my list!
