The truth is, each day a million things pop into my mind to blog about, then I sit down in the evening, begin a post, and my mind goes blank. I blame the baby.
I hope to post about maternity style (or the little I have, anyway), but I feel like I need to be just a tad larger and for that post.
I have jotted down recipe ideas I would like to attempt, but I have been too tired, and just resort to the old stand-by's.
Crafts and kid projects have been planned and, even if carried out to completion, there is little or no documentation before I forget all about them.
I am in the very slooow process of re-decorating the living room/dining room area, but I want a finished project before presenting it in whole. (Don't get excited about the beloved before-and-after photos, as I forgot to take any "before".)
All this to say, I can guarantee you a post next week about an awesome and local vacation we will be taking.
You see, a dear friend of mine decided to buy a house, flip it, and rent it out for vacationers. We leave Friday and will be there all weekend. I am getting so excited, and I can't wait to share with you all about it.
