Anyone remember that show?

 

Because I was kind’ve banking on the fact that the song would now be stuck in your heads.

[you’re welcome!]

 

Well, I feel like I’ve been singing that song a bit too often, lately, because every post that I’ve written and either published or scheduled to publish the next day has apparently not actually done so.

 

Every.  Single.  Post.

 

What in the world?!  I didn’t realize.  In fact, I never even double-checked because I just assumed that when wordpress told me it was publishing that it wasn’t a big, fat, liar-pants.

 

So I’m sorry for disappearing after saying that I was finally back.  And frankly, I’m not sure I even remember everything that I posted on because… well… nothing is stored anywhere!

 

Regardless of the list of excuses (ex: “I swear it wasn’t my fault – wordpress ate my homework!”), I’m hoping to post some projects that I’ve been working on here and there for friends and family as well as my own house, and also hope to finally get some half-decent pictures of the house up for y’all so that you can see what I’m working with.  The goal is then to put out some ideas and feelers and see if any of you have some tips for decor or ideas for where I can score some great finds – the plan is for this to be a bit of a collaborative effort, rather than just another DIY page.

 

I’m also planning to post some half-finished or not-yet-begun projects to get some opinions on where to take them.  A kind of “reader’s choice” for some things, with some already completed projects and how-tos mixed in for giggles.

 

Well… that’s all.  I know it seems like another excuse, but I swear I thought I had posted at least 3 times within the past couple of weeks, so I’m sorry to seem MIA again… I actually wasn’t this time!  Now this time, I’m copying everything and verifying it has published from a difference device.

Because fool me four times…. and I’ve really just earned it at that point.

 

Toodles!

The Case of the Missing Blogger

Wow.

How is it even possible that it’s been so long since I last posted?!

So I went MIA due to some ridiculousness at work that had me working crazy hours and not even wanting to touch electronics when I got home or on the weekend.  And then I started recovering… but was out of the habit.  And the next thing I knew… MONTHS had gone by since I last posted.  Sorry Friends!!

Where there’s plenty to fill you in on.  I finally built my first piece of furniture which I am stoked to tell you about.  And I’ve done a few other crafty builds as well.  Got another batch of projects lined up and even had some visitors come into town.

And if you can believe it, we have no been in Texas for over a year!  Whaaa?!  Where did the time go?

Anywho – Lots to fill you in on, but I am SO so sorry for being such a slacker.  I’ve so missed y’all and have been trying to catch up on your lives over the past few weeks, though I’m waaaayyy behind, so be patient with me.

Hugs!

Whoa!

When you read the title of this post, you have to read it properly.

And by that, of course, I mean as though you were watching an episode of Blossom. (remember that show? Those were the days)

I don’t even know where to begin.

The sanity check that I posted last time? Yeah… I had no idea what I was in for. The last couple of weeks have been CRAZYtown!!

There’s so much to update you on, that I couldn’t possibly do any single thing justice… So here’s a concise version:

– We finally listed our town home for sale. We got word that an offer is coming in (tomorrow?) so pray pray pray that it’s a good one that we can work with.

– I went on my work-sponsored house-hunting trip this past week. It was amazing! Not just the house-hunting, but getting to see Studly after being apart for two weeks, as well as getting my first glimpse of our new home city, and how could I not mention…..

– We found a house! Well… that’s the understatement of the day. We found THE house! And I’m pretty sure that I mentioned previously that the plan was to rent for the first year, in order to get used to the area and find where we’d really want to live and actually put down roots before starting a family, BUT…. Then we found this house. Holy Moses it’s amazing! I never in my life thought that I’d get to live in such an absolutely gorgeous house… It’s a dream home! I’m still pinching myself, really. If I wasn’t such a weirdo about putting personal details on the interwebs then I’d post pictures, but oh MAN oh man… It’s just…. Unbelievable!

– I leave in two weeks. TWO. WEEKS. Movers and “the truck” are due to arrive in just over a week (finally confirmed the dates), and that’s it. I’m moving clear across the country with my stud and my pup and that’ll be that. It’s really happening!

I’m not sure that I can really express through a blog just how much this move means to us… Or just how much we’ve longed for such an opportunity. So just know this – if I could sit across from you and tell you this in person, I’d probably end up crying. I’d be beaming… And I’d more than likely go on and on for quite some time.

Thanks for your support, blog buddies. Can’t wait to share more with you as things happen.

Oh…. And SO sorry for keeping you in the dark for so long. I clearly left out quite a bit of detail on these things, so ASK QUESTIONS! It’d be much easier to fill you in without forgetting things that way. 😉
