Hey y'all!! I have been working on this post since 11.24....so I am posting it today (12.15) but this will just go to show you how crazy things have been in my life....it takes me two weeks to get a post up here!!!
I know I know I know....after many emails and sweet comments from all of my followers I have decided to return. I won't be as fanatical about my blogging as I was in the past only because there are so many wonderful blessings sprouting up around us here in "real life." I have to say, I missed blogging, but I realized (gasp!) how trivial my blogging came compared to the real events happening in my life....some of you may not agree, but it's just not important enough to take time away from my precious Bug. She is growing up before my eyes and when I get home at night, it's honestly the furthest thing from my mind.
BUT...good news for all of you, I have made it a Pre New Years Resolution to blog at least once a week- WITH pictures!!! So many of you have emailed me/facebooked me/in person checking on me about my blogging and wanting to know where the heck I have been- and let me just say-it meant so much to me. Here's what's been going on in our lives.....
1. Bug turned 6 months old- and is about to turn 7 months the beginning of January. EEEK!!!! Where is my little baby?!?!?
2. I have been diagnosed with kidney stones. I have been having some pain for a few months now, and I just chalked it up to you know.....but four weeks ago I hit a brick wall and had to go to the ER (fun fun) in the middle of the night....after lots of testing, and even MORE serious painkillers, they found the culprit!! I had just been to the doctor the week before and they were thinking it might be an stress induced ulcer. Stress? Seriously? No stress here - riiiiiight- (which, was also a factor in the culmination that I would not blog anymore) and they ordered all these tests to be done in a few weeks....I go back today for a checkup and we're hoping all the weird other things going on were in fact related to the stones and nothing else. We can only pray.
I passed one stone two weeks ago and there's several more in there....hopefully they will make their way out soon. I can honestly say that this pain is a pain like no other. I cannot even describe to you how it feels. For those of you ever cursed with one of these suckers, you know what I am talking about. The nurse had an inkling when I was in the ER when he asked me to describe what I was feeling and I could barely talk and my entire body was shaking, he said he knew at that moment that it was a kidney stone- I laughed thinking NO WAY!
Well enough about my pains.....on to bigger and better things. My precious little girl and amazing husband are doing well- thanks to all of you for asking. I will post a collage of pictures after this...you WON'T believe your eyes!!!!
And my Girl Scouts? Well they are fabulous....we have come so far. We had our Holiday Party with them and it was a blast. They are the most precious girls and I just love every second I get to spend with them. I learn so much from them- way more than I am sure they learn from me. We are on Winter Break right now for them so we will resume in January. I can't wait to get back to them!
I turned the big 2-5 last week!!!!! This has been an amazing year and I am so thankful for all of the wonderful blessings. I have such wonderful friends and an amazing family who all spoiled me so richly on my big day...I got a brand new pair of Uggs so I can finally retire my old ones, my COWGIRL boots (yay!), Chanel perfume (divine), some jewelry, some vino, a beautiful picture of me with my Bug, some stemware, and some china (that I treated myself to, thank you) and to round it all out we had an amazing night out on the town with lots of debauchery. So all in all....it was a wonderful birthday/month.
I will post some pictures of my chunky monkey and some of the fun things that we are experiencing with her right now!!
Man, it's good to be back!!!! Missed y'all!!!!
