After weeks & weeks of reading Kathy's Hump Day Confessions and giggling to myself as I read everyone's posts I am finally joining in the fun!

Despite the weather (more on that tomorrow) summer is approaching. And with summer comes bathing suits. On two separate occasions this week I popped in a Yoga DVD and then sat at my desk and watched the DVD without actually getting up and moving. E for Effort?

I'm trying to grow parsley in a little flower pot that we made at Day Camp…it's been 2 weeks and there is no sign of anything growing. I'm not sure how much longer I'm going to continue to water dirt before I give up and accept it's not going to happen.

I finally watched the first two seasons of New Girl. I enjoyed the second season more than the first but honestly Jess kind of annoys me. I don't like one demential characters and Jess is pretty one demential. 
I have been on a really strict budget since the start of 2014. No unnecessary purchases. I haven't spent money on anything other than gas, groceries, student loan payments, rent and a handful of suppers out since January. This week I got tickets with friends to see the Backstreet Boys in May and almost have myself convinced to splurge on a cute camera strap before summer.

I am also itching for a new blog design. But I don't have $100 of dollars to spend and right now I'm not willing to spend the time to do it myself. If anyone has suggestions of bloggers who do design/layouts in the $30-$40 dollar range? Ideally closer to $30. Or cheaper. 

My camera is still at my parents house because I forgot to pack it when I moved. The only plus side to this is not having it has made me REALLY want to have it. So once we're reunited I will make up for lost time with lots & lots of photos.

I was crazy enough to think that I could pick up blogging right where I left it and am so disappointed to discover that is not the case. It's never been about the followers or comments but it is pretty disheartening to put time into blogging only to check stats and realize nobody read what you wrote.

I've been thinking about what to make for lunch since I finished eating breakfast at 9:30 this morning.

As soon as I decide what to make/eat for lunch I will move on to thinking about what to make for supper.
I am probably going to drink more than one cup of coffee today. And I'm okay with that. Snow days were made for blogging & multiple cups of coffee. 


  1. Trying to decide what to have for lunch is seriously one of my biggest issues each and every day. I need to just start packing!

  2. why are you keeping yourself secret, missy?! and for real, blogging is WORK. i have never worked so hard at something before and i do this shite for free!! i wish i could find a place that will pay me to blog on my site :)

    thanks for linking up!

  3. I need to add New Girl to my Netflix list. I started watching it when it first came out but then life happened & now I'm so far behind.

  4. Found you through the link up and thought I'd let you know that Erin @ Love, Fun & Football is currently designing my blog for $40! I think she is upping her prices soon so if you're interested you may want to contact her. I have loved working with her so far. I've changed my mind a million times but she has the patience of a saint! :)

  5. haha yoga videos can be pretty entertaining! Funny story, in Tennessee they actually had a E for effort grade lol

  6. I just started the second season of New Girl. Love it. I can't believe I wasn't watching it all along.

  7. The designer who did mine also has pretty premade templates for $30!

  8. I got tired of The New Girl because Nick is so whiny and kinda immature. I don't mind quirky Jess that much. Sometimes when I wake up, I am already thinking about that night's sleep :). Coffee. I must have!
