Recent Happenings ...

Good gosh golly I've been gone for a bit and half. It's August, my birth month, so I figured blogging had to happen since I'll be celebrating all month long. 

Life's been full and busy and good. Really good. Quite frankly, while I missed this space, I just couldn't bring myself to blog. That's about as blunt as it gets. I have no excuses. Life was happening and I was along for the ride. Blogging wasn't.

Anyhoo, today I'm here  so how about a catch me up aka photo dump. Photos are the best way to describe anything right? So here's what I've been up to...

* * * I had a beach day or two. I live on an island and don't go to the beach half as much as I should but I got some beach time in recently.

* * * Saw my sister who flew in from Australia!!!  I haven't seen her since I went to Australia in October 2014. Totally the highlight of the last couple months.

* * * Celebrated One year at work - I cannot believe its been a full year at my current job. Time does fly when you're having fun. It's been challenging and time consuming and lots of work - and I've loved every second of it. 

* * *  Had lots (and lots) of drinks and time with friends ...

* * * Went to the zoo... We have one zoo here and I haven't been to it in years. Frankly, I'd much rather see animals in the wild... I had fun though.

* * *  Went to a wedding or two. Though my makeup was a little to light for my face - not sure what happened with the foundation - the lip colour makes me like this pic.

* * * Cooked new things (and gained weight). My take on penne bolognese - see above fat face photo. Don't try to convince me otherwise - self-awareness is one of my best qualities.

* * * Stumbled upon some baby and childhood photos at my parents home and realized .... I was a cute kid.

* * * I also read 5 million books - no really, I read a lot. I even drafted a post for show us your books, then realized it was today... It wasn't ready to post and I couldn't just jump back in without a catch me up post. So hopefully next month?

If you read to the end kudos... 

That's all from me for today and I actually also have a post drafted for tomorrow - look at me blogging :)

Have a great Tuesday guys!!

  2. welcome back! glad that life is taking you for a fun ride these days. i'm always in a blogging slump during the summers and when i don't feel like posting, i don't so no worries about not being around these parts.

  3. Hey girl hey!!! Happy Birthday to my Leo friend :) August is the best birthday month, right?!?! I can't believe you have been at your job for a year??? I distinctly remember you telling us about the switch and it feels like a month ago not a year! Beach weekends are the best and I am so glad you got to see your sister!

  13. Yep, I completely understand how sometimes blogging just isn’t on the to-do list. Life should always take first priority!

    That is so exciting you got to visit with your sister! Looks like you’ve been busy with fun, family, friends, and happy times.

  15. Vocation time is the best ever fun time I have ever experienced. But during that time, It's really important to take care of health and you can do it better with hgh supplement which would help to keep you energetic all day long.
