Yep, prodigal blogger finally back. I was sorta taking a Spring Break break - trying to trim the electronics especially over the long Easter weekend when we went away to the River for a few days. Wonderful time, didn't have to work too much, and the weather was fantastic. And things have just been so busy between work, sick kids, sick me. I've kept a semi-conscious state on Polyvore, but that's really about it.
I did have to kick my own butt to get back on here (with some help from a little nudge from Anon & casual-crew - thanks!) because I think I've just been kinda in the blahs lately. Honestly, the holidays didn't do me in - it was the 2 back to back blizzards and 7 pounds. Thanks, Mother Nature. Yes, I know, it really is my fault - declining activity, increasing amounts of (let's be honest) crap eaten and where does that get us? You don't have to be a rocket scientist to realize it's going to add a few pounds. Maybe I should be grateful it was only 7 accumulated over the past couple of months?
And then my Lenten plan. First of all, the distracted driving part - getting rid of that - was fantastic. A true eye-opener. And I'm so glad I did it. The reigning in clutter part? Just didn't happen - work was just way too crazy. And to go back to the previous thought yeah, wellness just did not figure into the equation as I'd planned.
But spring is a time for rebirth and renewal, right? It's funny - while we were at the river, I helped my mom go through her closets - which I LOVE to do (always easier to go through someone else's, right?). And it made me realize that I just really really REALLY need to go through mine. With what time? Oh yeah, that... well the upside to the crazy hours is that there are only so many hours in a contract and it has to slow down sometime...which is now. Leaving me a bit more time for the things that I really need and want to do. Like blog. Like go through my closets. Like get back to walking Lucy as much as I should. Speaking of Lucy, here's the latest photo from Spring Break:
So the pink part...I need to get into a whole discussion on foundation later, but I was at the Nordstrom Bobbi Brown counter on Friday, and what did I spy with my little eye? New lip product...Treatment Lip Shine SPF 15. I got Pink Glisten 4.
