From My iPhone: Let’s Get Reacquainted…Again

The famjam and I went to Montreal and Toronto for the 2015 IIHF World Junior Hockey Championships. We’re die hard WJC fans and it was the trip of a life time. Tommy isn’t a fan of having his picture taken with the rest of us, but at least we got one. Can you feel the love?

There was a little bit of baby time during Christmas. I was lucky enough to have my favorite Thomas the Train fanatic visit me during our stopover in Halifax. And then this adorable little hockey fan decided the view of the game was better from my lap than her mom’s one row back. Little Lady is not scared of strangers.

I’ve gotten in the habit of boozin’ while I’m bathin’. Its the best. Seriously, you should try it sometime. Unless you’re pregnant, in which case that would be bad, so please don’t.

And of course I saved my favorites for last. My first ever order arrived last week, and I’m loving it all so far (details will follow soon I promise.) And of course the blog’s very first photo of J.W. because I’m pretty proud to show him off. Don’t you love our shirts? Yes, we match. Yes, it was on purpose.

Happy weekend! Currently I’m being super lazy while I should be getting ready for lunch with J-Dub’s brother and sister-in-law. Haven’t me them yet, so I’m a teensy bit nervous. Megan tells me to be myself, but few take to my non-stop chatter and questionable comments. She’s the only one who loves me for me haha. The bf is pretty on board with taking pictures of all the things, so here’s to hoping there will be some documentation of the weekend and its happenings.

See you Monday!

Its Been A While…

Let’s talk blogging, or at least the lack of it that has been happening around these parts for the past few months.

For most of 2014 I lost my motivation to put much effort into writing. I tried to push through, I really did, but in the end this place was basically abandoned. I thought about it often, daily even, but I guess I just didn’t care enough to clean up the cobwebs growing in the corners around here.

Twenty Fourteen was a mess of a year. There were certainly some good points, I got to throw Sarah a bachelorette party, stand by her side as she got married, visit Megan in Edmonton, and met an awesome guy. But as many highs as there were, there were substantially more lows. J screwed with my life again (and I let him), and after that I kind of spiraled, not in a drugs and alcohol sort of way, but I was being destructive when it came to my friendships. I did things and acted in ways that I am extremely not proud of, regretful and embarrassed about.

So, when my poor choices finally caught up to me, things were a little dark for a while and somedays (most days) I’m still dealing with that.

This past year I also became very frustrated with the progress (or lack there of) I was making around here. I put too much importance on the number of page views and followers I had and I got frustrated that this place didn’t become popular quickly like other blogs. I forgot about why I started this blog in the first place; to document and share my likes, wants, thoughts and experiences with others.

You’ll see a lot of new changes around here in the next while. New name, new design (I’m hoping to work with Erin from Two Thirds Hazel) and a lot more consistency from me. I want to get back to loving this place.

It may take me a little while to get back on track, but I hope you’ll stick around. Seriously, things can only get better from here.
