Well…as you can see, I decided to start a new blog. You may or may not have been reading my previous blog, Greek Yogurt & Apple Slices, but I wanted to start new….start fresh. I wasn’t sure that I even wanted to blog anymore at all, but I really did enjoy it. I might not be blogging as MUCH as I did when I was writing at Greek Yogurt & Apple Slices (which was typically once a day), I plan to just write when I feel like it.
So why the new blog? Honestly it came down to the whole ‘blog comparison’ thing. I feel like my previous blog kind of fell under the ‘healthy living’ category, and well, I am just kind of over that category. Don’t get me wrong, I still read that cateogory of blogs (some of them are even my favorite blogs to read!), I just didn’t want to feel like I could ONLY blog about those particular topics. I got WAY too caught up in the ‘she eats that everyday, boy do I feel like a pig, or works out ‘X’ amount of time..and I only workout this amount of time.’ It was getting out of control and ended up bringing me down more, rather than being a positive thing in my life. So I stopped reading those blogs, actually I stopped reading most blogs for a while- I just needed a break, and now I’m only going to read stuff that I truly ENJOY reading…and not blogs that bring me down, or that don’t appear to be ‘real.’ <—I’m sure you know what I mean.
Now I’m just going to be an everything blog. I don’t want a category. I will be sharing a bunch of stuff; things that were on my old blog- like new recipes & workouts…but also just fun stuff- like articles I might of found online that I think other people might like…or my favorite hair products. Who knows what I might think of, I just don’t want to be a ‘categorized’ blog. I’m ready for a new look .
Just give me some time to get this new blog up to date- I’ll be adding some tabs at the top…and it needs some more color or something! I just have to figure it out .
You might of wondered where I’ve been. Well, for starters….the holidays were great!! We (my husband Craig & I), spent Thanksgiving in Maryland with Craig’s family & then Christmas here in Florida with my family.
^before the Ravens v. 49ers on Thanksgiving night.
^Chopping down my in-laws Christmas tree- my first time chopping down a tree.
<—Craig & I had Christmas at our house. Don’t mind the treadmill behind my head, but DO notice the purple tree..for the Ravens, of course.
I got a bunch of pig & Ravens gear…including my favorite player – Lardarius Webb’s jersey-
And Craig got some new toys…
Including a dragon car to ride around on.
No, I’m just kidding…it was for our nephew Ethan, although I think Craig may of wanted to keep it for himself.
I also turned 25 on December 26th- a QUARTER of a century…eek! Craig surprised me with a trip to St. Augustine & a night at a bed & breakfast.
<—highly recommend this place!
We went on a horse drawn carriage ride through the city at night, and then enjoyed dinner on the oceanfront. Perfect way to celebrate turning 25.
Shortly after we went down to Fort Lauderdale to spend New Years Eve with my best friend, Lea.
We had a great time…and enjoyed ringing in 2012 with some of our favorite people! It’s hard to believe it’s already 2012!
Then it was back to reality, and time to get back to the grind at work. Now January is almost over…and we are heading into February. It’s getting closer to Valentine’s day, which I know is one of the most hated holidays, but I have to admit I really do like it. Maybe it’s because I love those little conversation hearts, or just because I love to love. I’m not sure, but I have liked the holiday ever since I was little.
I just googled ‘conversation hearts’ and this popped up…
they must of guessed it, those were the EXACT hearts I was looking for. HA! Totally kidding. I don’t know how I feel about ‘snookin 4 luv.’
Anyways, time to go & work on some house stuff. It feels like every weekend we have been doing some kind of renovation or changes to our house…have to admit, I kind of love it! I also need to work on this new blog.
Hope you enjoy your day! I plan to take advantage of this gorgeous weather we are having this afternoon- it’s perfect for a run!
