M.I.A.

Ohhh yea, I have been missing in action for a while now, and I deeply apologize.  But I do have good reason for it....wait for it ................................................................................................................................ pure laziness.  I know, I know.  It's a terrible excuse for my LOB {lack of blogging}, but it's the truth.  And I promise to never be anything but honest with all of you. 

Work has been a little busy, and I've been exhausted by the time I get home.  Most likely, my tired nature has to do with me and my hubby's new gym routine.  We used to do the gym at 5AM every day when we lived in our townhouse.  Then we sold our place, moved in with the in-laws, and totally lost touch with our workout habits for over a year.  No bueno.

Now that we are settled in our new house, we started that same routine back up at a new gym.  Getting up at 5AM is the worst thing ever, but getting a workout in before I even get to work is the best feeling ever.  We've been at it for a little over a month, but I think my body is still adjusting to the whole, get up early and go to sleep earlier thing.  I find that I'm pretty beat by the time I get home.  That means all things home-project-blogland go out the window to make room for curling up on the couch and getting cozy with my DVR'ed shows.

But have no fear...my uh-mazing parents arrived last night, and for those of you who follow my blog {I love each and every one of you, with all my heart, btw}, you know what that means.  We are about to get down to business!  On our to-do list...hmmmm...well what isn't on our to-do list.... 

Maybe I should have said, "on our radar for the next couple days" is our home's exterior.  {I took Monday through Wednesday off next week so I can spend time with my parents and get some work done on the house.}  Even though we painted and de-jungle-ified our home when we purchased it....we didn't finish those tasks completely.  The cold{ish} weather moved in and we ran out of money in our budget.  So the trim was never painted and our landscaping {or lack thereof} needs some mayyyyy-jor work.

All this activity hopefully means I'll have lots of fun stuff to share with you guys in the coming week...and it also means I'll be able to work all this off...along with the Bonefish Grill dinner I'll be housing tonight! ;)

If you couldn't tell from the first picture above...today is my birthday.  And no, today isn't bad luck for me.  In fact, I was born on Friday the 13th, so I consider the day lucky!

Have an awesome weekend everyone! :)

  7. Happy Birthday!!! I know what you mean about being tired after work. My alarm goes off at 4:00am during the week so I can get a good sweat on before I start work at 7:30am. By the time I get home I'm ready for bed!

  10. I feel you 100% on laziness! I've started running in the evenings after work and by the time I'm home, run, showered, and eaten it's like 9pm. I'm hoping to eventually get my time figured out better, but for now the blog takes the backburner.

    Have fun with your parents! Can't wait to see what you get done.
