You are probably thinking that I gave up on yall, aren't ya.... well I haven't. Hooray.
I'm just going to throw it out there and tell you, I'm a bad blogger. I would say I've been busy and give you some excuses, but I'm quite sure everyones been really busy lately, and a lot of people are still posting. So this one goes on my permanent record yall.
I will admit I've been way overwhelmed here lately. Most of the time I feel like I'm not actually interacting with people who live on my planet. Not to mention occasionally I simply shut down. When I say shut down, I mean hiding in a corner rocking.... cookoos nest.
Hopefully I will be recovering pretty soon and back to normal... or at least what we usually perceive as normal.... right?!

Good news... I'm alive!
I should also probably mention that we made it back from Vegas in once piece, mostly. I'm pretty sure we walked at least 30 miles though, so our feet were so sore to say the least.
I would defiantly call it a success though. I will have to upload some pictures for y'all. Of course I didn't take as many as I would have liked to, but at least I have some share with you.
This weekend was a pretty quite one, we had some sleep to catch up on after all. I think I fell asleep at 8 pm on Saturday! I'm such an old lady, eh!?
Pictures soon, I promiiiise!!

This girl went to see Huey Lewis and the News at Billy Bob's with UH and our best friends.
If you don't know who Huey Lewis is, I'll forgive you. Chances are you know his music, even if you can't place the band. It may also help to mention that he hit his prime in the music industry in the 80's....
We got some great pictures though and even a video or two!!

I feel like I have claimed a million times before that it's been crazy hectic, but it really has been.
I work for a company that just launched the new iPhone 4s and things have not made sense since!
Blame that!!! k?!
Things don't seem to be settling down now either. So it seems I have a lot to share with you.
Starting with where we will be this week....
And boy am I excited. We are actually hopping on a plane today!!! I will be back in a week, but in the mean time I figured I'd try filling yall in on the DL!!

You've ll seen the awesome Pinterest pins of door wreaths lately, right?
Being the skeptic I am I figured it wasn't actually possible or plausible to make "cute" felt flowers.... I my have been wrong though.
I promise I thought about busting out my dslr to document this for you, but I didn't... So your stuck with lame phone pictures. I'm a work in progress.
I will say I only spent something like 10 dollars in this project, so I'm happy with it. I am not happy with the blisters on my fingers from burning myself with the hot glue gun though!
The felt roses.
Finished project. It numbers look slightly crooked, I don't think they are though....?

The thing is, I've been pinning on my iPad a lot... and I haven't mastered the art of sharing those pins with you from my iPad.... and I haven't seen my laptop in days it seems. Poor thing must feel neglected.
I think I may do the iOS5 update to it today too.... I'm just hoping I don't ruin it.
In the meantime I thought I'd share with you a self portrait I took. I just received my tripod and remote clicker(?) thing and was participating in one of those.... 30 photos in 30 days deals, and this is my result.

I was doing so well for a while... and then... I let it go. I think you can apply that statement to a lot in life actually... hmm.
I think I can accurately claim that my life has been hectic. Newlywed, puppy, work, cleaning. I added cleaning, because I think it should be listed separate from newlywed. Housework sucks.
Pre-wedding we had a maid once a week. I know... I'm a brat. When we became engaged we decided to save the money and put it towards the wedding. Almost two years later, we haven't gone back... yet. I really feel like I should do a better job keeping up with housework... it's just hard.
I remember my mom saying that, and I can guarantee you I rolled my eyes. I would go back and slap myself for that one, now.
Not to create excuses for myself or anything, but I work 48 hours a week and go to the gym for... round trip... about 2 hours. That leaves 8:30 PM tooooo.... 12? to clean. Who wants to clean after that kinda long day.
Any who, I've gotten much better. It's not so bad if you just try and maintain daily.
I may never master the art of cleaning.

I know I pinned yesterday, but still...
It has been craAAAzy at work lately. It has really picked up lately and I find myself feeling like I ran around like a chicken with no head all day. Do you ever feel that way? Like you were really busy all day but when you try and list the things you accomplished... you draw a blank.
Also, Gmail seems to be temporarily... out. What?! That actually happens??? I miss my email already! :)
Lately I've been contemplating picking up the iPhone 4Gs. I'm not sold though. I don't want to just hop on the bandwagon because everyone else has. The one big motivational factor to do it????
Two words: Designer Cases

I am so out of it today though. I feel sick. It kinda sucks. So I'm really sleepy and slightly cranky, but I will try and keep that to myself today. That has been my goal just about all day. So, moving on.

It's technically still Friday, so while this may be a later than normal post it does mean I didn't skip out on y'all today!
I've been toying with the idea of getting an iPad for a while now, but I always talk myself out of it at some point. I'm very fortunate to have the things I have and I guess I just feeling guilty sometimes for wanting something when I have so much.
I've been weighing the pros and cons with UH and really digging to make sure that it was something I really wanted and would really use. I absolutely don't want something that I'm not going to actually use... no matter how much it costs.
So UH told me to give it s few more days to think about and if I still wanted it then we could talk about it fo realz. I don't make quick decisions about these kinds of things, so I said yeah sure.... Sounds good.
Well... I best UH home from work today and he comes and gets me and tells me he has a surprise for me. I got a little hopeful when he says, don't get excited it's not an iPad. If you know UH then you know that when he says phrases like that, you listen.... Cause last time he said that he got me a box of nails.... Seriously. Then he turns around to grab it and says.. It's an iPad TWO! Sneaky little boy, he got me sn iPad 2!
I'm pretty sure this is the coolest present that UH has gotten me for no reason in our vast 6 year history. UH doesn't get me big presents for no real reason, and he doesn't have it, certainly not to prove anything, I know he loves me to death no matter what.
A keeper, with or without presents, that man is.
Hope y'all have an awesome weekend!!

That does mean I'm linking up for this, though:
This week my temptations are DIY projects. Some of these I may have posted already or recently, but sometimes I just think I'm Martha Stewart. I really hope I attempt at least one of these this weekend though! :)

Not to mention, I love seeing what other people are pinning. It's a glimpse into a persons life ya know?! What projects are they up too, what is their fashion styles, what are they cooking tonight?! I'm so nosy.
