Me > Blogging Funk. I Win.

1.03.2014
So if you couldn't tell by the title above or my recent posts, I've been in a blogging funk. I blame the holidays. They came up and captured my heart as of lately and this lil bloggie of mine has sorta been pushed off to the side. First it was Christmas in all it's glory with all things pine scented, glittered, and oven baked. Then it was the remodel. When I didn't wear make-up or dress decently for days due to demolition, sheet-rock and paint. Then New Years came strolling in and swept me off my feet to a cabin far, far way in the boonies of Pigeon Forge were I spent 99% of my time turning into a raisin in the hot tub. Man I wish I had a hot tub. For now I'll just reminisce in my quaint little bath tub with my jets blasting, candles burning, and my wine sippin', beef jerky eating self. (my health kick starts tomorrow).
But now all the holidays are over and I have no excuse until I have to start sweating over Valentine's Day. Oh that word makes me cringe. I have never liked V-day. Don't ask me why. Maybe it has to do with the fact that it's one day a year when we are expected to do some "above and beyond" act to remind the person we are with that we love them? How about we should do that all year long yo? Surprises and spontaneity win every time. Jon is lucky. I don't expect anything on V-day. Well, I expect flowers, but only because I ask for those all year long. I'm thinking this year we will just head off to the Hot Springs with a bottle of wine and hide away from all the heart covered restaurants for the night. Pretend the whole 10 letter word isn't happening and it's just another day in Mill's paradise.

I realize I just got really off track in the last two paragraphs. I don't really know if I had a plan this entire time or if I just let my fingers have a mind of their own tonight. Maybe all this to say, I'm getting back on the blogging bandwagon. I'm taking the blogging bull by the horns. I'm back in the bloggin' saddle again. And I hate Valentine's Day.

PS. In more exciting news, Rachael from The Rachael Way, was kind enough to ask if I'd like to be involved in her giveaway for a Naked 3 Palette. And since I'm extremely jeally and want it all for myself, of course I said yes! Good luck you rascals you.

  1. I've had problems blogging lately too, I think it's been more of a time issue with me though. I am ready to dig back in and get back to more makeup and beauty posts! Happy new year :)

  4. You aren't the only one who has neglected their blog. Sometimes I feel like this is a part time job! But I am sure you will get back in the swing of things and write about the things dear to your heart :) Look forward to reading more of your posts :)

  5. I SO understand the blogging funk! The holidays really sucked me in, too, and I didn't fight them at all. I think it was just what I needed but now I'm so ready to get back to my normal routine, especially blogging. :) Also, you are not alone in the lack of Valentine's Day love...not my thing either! Here's to blogging...we're back, Jack! :)

  6. What a great idea; get away for the night, pretend it's not the ten letter word. Great idea. Personally I will be hanging out with Ben and Jerry that night, so you beat me! Glad you are back on the blogging saddle, can't wait to read along and see what a great 2014 you are gonna have!

  9. I've been super lazy about updating my blog while my husband was on leave and the kids were on school break. I need to get my groove back! lol

    I am not a fan of Valentine's Day either. However, I celebrate with my kids. They're my Valentine's!

    Love the giveaway! If I didn't already have the palette, I would totally enter!
