Dear Bath and Body Works,
Stop sending me all the emails with the deals and the coupons and...just stop. My wallet can't take it and my husband is starting to give me side eye with the piles of Wallflowers and hand soaps. ENOUGH.

Dear Summer,
I like you, I mean you're not my favorite season or anything, but you're cool because of my birthday and longer days. But can we stop with all the rain now? It's getting a little ridiculous.

Dear football,
I miss you. There is nothing good to watch on Saturdays and Sundays. Please come back.

Dear carbs,
We need to talk. You're really great and all, and it's been fun. But I think we need to break up. You pretend to be my best friend and we have so much fun together. Then suddenly I realize my pants don't fit and I feel like crap. It's not me, it's you.

Dear decaf coffee,
I used to enjoy you just for the flavor, but now I'm getting old and I need the caffeine to function at work. Or maybe I've built up too high of a tolerance to caffeine and it doesn't effect me the same as it used to. Either way decaf, you're kiiinda useless now.

Dear life,
Could you ease up a little? I don't need it to be smooth sailing all the time, but a little break here and there would be great, mmkay? Thanks.

Remember Me?

So that was a really long blogging break. I'm not even sure how to start other than to jump right back in. So hi! How's things?

I guess I'll jump in with a few things I've been up to since my last post (over a year ago, yikes):

  • Went on a somewhat impromptu trip to Savannah and SO want to go again

  • Adopted a bird (Like, an Amazon parrot, he's huge) 

  • Started a new job in a new industry (partially why I fell off the face of the blogging earth, it kind of consumed my life for a while) 

  • Working on completing a certification for said job

  • Celebrated 10 years married to this guy

  • Actually developed a slightly greener thumb and am totally obsessed with gardening now (grandma alert) 

  • Thoroughly enjoying that my in-laws live a few minutes away from us now and we see them all the time (I have the best in-laws ever, BTW) 

  • Discovered I love off-roading with Adam and our fellow Jeep friends (who knew?) 

  • Met some awesome new work friends (they are seriously the best, we even hang out on the weekends and don't get sick of each other!) 

  • Fallen more in love with coffee (obviously) 

  • Got back into cakes again and loving the creative outlet + side hustle cash

  • Hung out with the cutest kids ever (AKA my nieces and nephews) when my SILs were in town

I guess that about sums it up. What have you been up to??
