Life Lately

Happy Thursday guys! I think this might be the first time that I missed an entire month on my blog. Did you miss me? No? You know what? I don't blame you. I hate flaky people as well. It's actually a pet peeve.

Anyway, in the event that you do have a minute to hear me out - here's 'whats new with me' lately (categorized of course because #TypeA ):

PS - No credit can be taken for this perfection of a photo. I paid for a shutterstock subscription a while back and got this stock photo on there... its to cute not to use!

1. Blog - I feel like my blog has become an apology fest and I hate that. I'd miss a month then get anxious about not posting, so I stall some more, then apologize and miss another month. A vicious cycle. Sorry guys. I truly don't blame the unfollows  that I've gotten at all because frankly it's annoying.

So no apologies today, I'll just say that life's busy (in a good way) and I'm still here. Just less. I guess.

The funny thing is I have sooo many posts drafted, so many photos on my camera and so many things to say. I'm just life-ing and living right now and life is good. I just need to figure out a way to find time to share all of this goodness.

Anyway, in case you missed it, I posted a book review on Tuesday. And here's a funny story. I actually thought I posted a confessions blog yesterday. It was drafted and scheduled ... but this ole rusty blogger scheduled it for the wrong day. At least I wont have to draft one next week? #silverlining.

Also the blog turned 2 at the end of February ... Happy belated Birthday?

2. Work - works been going great! For those who don't know I'm a commercial litigation attorney. I still absolutely love my job though it keeps me busy as heck. It legit consumes my days and so I often work long hours. I'm actually rarely ever home before 6 pm and sometimes work weekends. Sounds stressful but because I like it, it's not. I haven't taken vacation yet but I'm eligible in July!

3. Travels - well I'm eligible in July as I said ... OC and I have plans to go to Barbados in August, and after that I may go to Virginia with my mum!

4. Domesticating - I've become domestic. Or at least I'm trying. See, turns out my dude hates fast food and I'm also trying to lose weight. What that means is I try to cook a lot more than before, you know, after I get home from work late. What that also means is I may just take start taking pics of what I cook and posting more recipes. Lemons into lemonade over here.

Sidenote - I cooked the best rice I ever cooked in all my years of cooking rice on Tuesday. Gave myself a pat on the back too and did a jig ...

5. Weight Loss - guys ... In the last few months I gained so much weight - too much. It's so bad I can't even take a selfie without cringing. My face looks like a chipmunk - storing nuts. My Instagram is now full of quotes becuause photos of myself are a no go haha. I'm trying to find the motivation to fix it though. Trying ...  #ButCake

  2. Welcome back! Don't worrying about apologizing. I didn't blog for 3 months because of work and just other things took precedence. Love your update! Sounds like life is going really well!

  3. Happy blog bday! It can definitely be hard to keep up with blogging and life all at once. For a lot of years I had the same issue! I finally seem to be in an OK groove. :) Barbados sounds AWESOME. Excited for you! I haven't been to Virginia yet either! KC and I have been cooking at home more too, and making an effort to work out more even for small amounts of time each day. Which usually means 20 minutes of yoga! Hey, it's something! :) Happy April! XO - Alexandra

  4. I have not been keeping up steady blogging, either! Whatever.. it happens. You have a job and a life, and as much as I would love to get paid to blog, that's not the case. Update whenever you can and if it's often, that's great and if not, oh well. That's so awesome that you love your job that much. I wish I enjoyed my job a lot and hopefully one day I can find one that I do! Mmmmm homemade rice sounds so good. I'm kind of the person everyone gives their food to in the office right now, so I can't say much about weight gain lol. But homemade stuff is good.

  5. Welcome back!! Sounds like life has been treating you well lately. Good to know you love your job. I certainly don't love mine lol Barbados should be a nice getaway for you and the guy!

  6. Welcome back! I can totally relate to blogging sometimes needing to take a backseat, but I'm excited to hear more about what you've been up to!

  8. Girl, do no apologize for not blogging in awhile. Life happens!! We are just glad we get pieces of you here and there :) I love to hear that you are loving your job!!! And look at you becoming domestic. I got real domestic when Chris came around too. Maybe you can share your amazing rice recipe with us sometimes?!?! Yum!!!! And don't stress yourself out if you gained a few pounds. I have good times and bad times with weight. All you can do is take it one day at a time and know that if you made a bad choice today, just do better tomorrow or next meal :) Good seeing around friend!

  9. I've missed you lady! So hard to hear you're doing well! I love Barbados-that is going to be such a fun trip! :) Also, the cake struggles are real!

  10. Oooh commercial litigation - I did defense litigation for years and it can definitely be time consuming! And don't apologize about not being able to blog more. Do it when you can and don't stress about it!

  11. I think having a good blog/life balance can be really hard (especially if you also work full time, and obviously you do ... I do as well). I struggle with that constantly, but you know what? Blogging should be fun and not stressful. When I start feeling like I'm not in the mood to post or that I'd simply rather be doing something else, I take a break. I usually don't take longer than a week off from it because I usually feel like going back to it after that. But you're absolutely right ... You shouldn't have to apologize for living your life off the blog! I say just do whatever works best for you. :-)

    Oh, and I totally hear you on the weight struggles. I was doing really well with cutting back, eating healthier, and working out at the beginning of the year, and last month I just decided to eat whatever I wanted and didn't work out as often ... And I gained back two pounds I'd previously lost. I also feel like I show extra weight in my face. I have a round face and I swear I look like a chipmunk when I gain weight! I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels that way. Haha. Good luck getting back on track, though! It sounds like you're well on your way if you're starting to cook at home more often ... That alone can really help!

  12. i can see why you haven't been posting lately..your life sounds so busy! Never feel bad about that..it's something we can all understand. I do appreciate you linking up with Kristen and me today though!

  13. No apologies necessary! You have the BEST excuse for not blogging = "life-ing" :) I love that. And, that gif of the girl dancing outside the school bus? Golden. I'm happy to hear that OC is still in the picture. :) :)

  14. Girl I feel the same way about rice lol. I don't know what it is but I am not a great rice cooker but then again I don't really eat a lot of rice either so lol. And don't apologize, things happen. Or rather shit happens... I'm just glad you're here now :).

  15. i was literally thinking about you last night--like where did she go? and then i knew i had to stop by today! i'm so glad you are doing well!!

  16. Yes, happy belated birthday to your blog! So happy to hear work is going so well, if a little hectic. Hope your experiments in home cooking go well!

  17. So unrelated to the post but that chocolate croissant looks soo good, I would have used that picture too ;) I've definitely scheduled blog posts for the wrong day and then been confused as to why they didn't post-- or accidentally set them to post to a day in the past, which causes all kinds of bloglovin' chaos. So glad to hear you're enjoying your job- that definitely makes a huge difference when what you do is on the stressful side.

  18. Don't worry about apologizing. The only person I apologize to when I miss a scheduled day or posting, or two, or three, is my mom, and that's because she calls me up and asks where her blog post is....

    Homemade food is good stuff--honestly, my own cooking tempts me more than just about anything I can get at a restaurant...

  19. Glad to hear you're enjoying your new job and that everything is going well! Life's been a roller coaster for me too lately and I'm struggling to hang on to everything, but I just keep trying to remind myself that I can only do so much and to take it day by day. It's great to hear from you, but it sounds like all the things keeping you away are awesome, worthy things!

  20. LOL "#ButCake"..that made me laugh. love that you love your job. funny how even the most stress can be handled well if you enjoy what you do.

  21. Life happens. It just does. I've been having the exact same problems and I agree with Kristen. Screw apologies and screw the people that unfollow. If you can't blog, you can't blog. It's not a job. It's something you do because you enjoy it. Something I have to remember as well.

    I'm also having issues with weight. I've gained so much and I hate it. So I just joined a gym last week and have already been there twice and am cutting down on soda, drinking more water and trying to watch what I stick in my mouth lol. I'm also trying to cook some healthier things so that the leftovers are still healthy and plentiful for the days that I cannot cook.
