Geeez... MIA much?

First of all I would like to apologize to all my readers for not posting much in awhile.

I have no excuse other than I've been swamped with work and have been avoiding my computer like The Plague.  Seriously, I'm on the computer all day at work and I usually just want to avoid my computer at home by the end of the day.

A small update on my life-

1. I haven't been running yet since I set those goals.  Why? 1) I didn't get a chance to get new shoes and am a huge scaredy cat that my injury is going to come back.  2) I had every intention to run yesterday, but decided to walk and chat/catch up with a friend instead.  It was still exercise, but no running.

2.  I got stung by a bee yesterday.  While walking/chatting.  And it hurt like a mo-fo! I haven't gotten stung by a bee in YEARS.  I usually run a way from bees (which apparently you're not supposed to do) or end up looking like an African Tribal Dancer as I swat it away.

That's not the actual bee by the way....

But yesterday? I didn't stand a chance.  I was just walking along minding my own business and a bee flew between my arm and torso and stung me on the inside of my bicep.  I called my dad (of course) and he joked that I could blog about how to get bigger biceps- no weights required! sheeeeeesh...

Anyway, after a swipe of apple cider vinegar and some tea tree oil ointment, I'm all better.  No itching, swelling, or pain, just some slight redness.

3. Tara at Dashing in Pearls is participating in a 30 day challenge.... and I've really loved all the topics she's written about.  I've seen other 30 day challenges in blog world- picture challenges, song challenges, all about me challenges... but this one seems different.  I like the the topics and Tara has shared some really insightful and personal information.  So I decided to jump on the bandwagon.  Here's a list of the topics that I swiped from Tara:

I know the type is kinda small but bare with me.  Also? I don't like to be confined and do things in order so I'm using a random number generator to pick the topics for me.  First topic chosen?

Oh how fitting.

15. You're Favorite Tumblrs.

Now I assume it isn't referring to my favorite cups but rather to my favorite bloggers. Stay tuned for that one!


  1. I loved her challenge--I think it's a great thing for bloggers to tackle! Hope you're able to get new shoes soon!

  2. eek! hope youre feeling better after the bee sting

  3. Yay I am so excited you're going to do it too! My blog betttter be on that favorites list! HA!

  4. I'm not gonna lie.. I was about to call in a Missing Persons Report;)

    Glad you're back & glad you're doing the Challenge! Having blog topics on hand is always a great resource!

    PS: Love the natural bee sting remedy! Most people would just "spring" for some benadryl! Hope it's already better..
