Sticky Bliss

These are the best sticky buns I have ever had! Oh, and they are dangerous!

I found a little time today to update two pages on my blog.




Life is nutty right now.

Kid: Gwen is 1 month old. We have figured out our routine so things should get easier for a short time...right? Please.

Homestead: We should be moving in a few weeks. We are still waiting to find out when we close on our new house. It's making me a little crazy. I have so much packing to do. Where to start? Yikes.

Work: Jeff hasn't been feeling all the great (hmm...could it be stress?) so he took it a little easy last week. Looks like that will change this week. His partner (his dad) is in Michigan right now working a storm and if it goes really well, the Anderson's might be going out to Michigan for a few weeks. That will be fun. (insert severe sarcasm)

As for me, I actually do have a tiny bit of work to do over the summer. I coordinate and plan the annual client appreciation event my boss hosts every August. I have 350 invites to design and make before July 10th.

Hobbies: I really need to find time each day to work on my scrapbook biz blog. The motivation is right there...almost within grasp...if...I...could...just...reach...a...little...further...

I would also like to work a little more on my photography skills. I was inspired by some photo's I saw on a few of my favorite blogs today, and I would like to develop better skills. We'll see when I have time to work on this one.

Health: I lost a ton of weight at the start of my pregnancy and then again after Gwen's birth. I'm feeling like I'm losing a little ground and need to focus better on eating habits and exercise. I was told to hold off on working out until about 6 weeks. I'm at 4 and I'm chomping at the bit! I think I'll start easing into exercise today. I see a nice long walk in my and Gwen's future. I refuse to be a frumpy mom. I need to set a good example for my daughter!

So...I have a lot to focus on. Better get to it.



No Time

Slowly but surely I will return to the blog world. For now, I simply don't have the time. I'm consumed by my perfect little angel, and the blogging world will just have to wait...
