i've lost it...

... my mojo that is.

It all started innocently enough. I was preparing for a 4 day work/vacation in Monterey with the hubs and kids for hubs company's annual shareholders meeting. {Translation: Hubs works 14 hour days for like 3 weeks preparing for this and then works all day Friday and part of Saturday and has Sunday off in Monterey. Company puts us up in a big fancy shmancy suite and gifts us massages and tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium to make up for crazy work hours.} Fun, but not a total vacation if you know what I mean. Still great, who would've paid for our suite otherwise? This time I got smart, I took a nanny {translation: our 13 year old baby sitter} with us who was all to happy to help me with the kids while John worked in exchange for loot and great company parties and beach BBQs.

So I digress. All the preparing led me to no blogging. Then the actual vacation happened and I'm a freak and won't announce on my blog that I'm out of town, so that explains that part of the absence. But then we got back and the laundry piled up and the toys were screaming to be purged and reorganized and darn it if the pantry didn't *beg* me to be moved and rearranged again. And then I thought, what the heck will I blog about anyways? I have no projects completed, I'm too lazy to upload all our vacation photos. What. Do. I. Do?

So, I did this: Nothing. And you know what? It felt pretty good. So since you've now read {if you're not snoring by now} 4,356 words of mine with no pretty pictures or POINT, I am going to post random non-sensical fabulousness I've collected recently online. Hope you enjoy. And yes, I got 2 awards in my absence and right now I am so tired I can't even find the images to post and then forward to 20 people. Please forgive me. I hope I find my mojo soon. You'll be the first to know when I do. Thanks for checking in on a sista and everything. Y'all are the best.









p.s. If I stole one of the above images from your blog, I sincerely apologize. I cannot for the life of me keep track of where I get things from. I save them for my own enjoyment then when I'm desperate for something to post on, like now, I scrounge them up. My sincerest apologies if I offended you or committed a faux-pas.

I giggled all the way through this, I can SO relate. I have been feeling the same busy-ness of life and loss of mojo. Glad you are back! It's OK.

When real life is thrust in our faces, sometimes blogging doesn't happen...it's okay. We missed you, but we've all been there...just don't give it up for real.....that would be unfortunate for us! :)

Gorgeous pics! I love that 2nd one especially. I won't announce that I'm leaving town either. I'm happy for you that you got to on a trip even if it wasn't totally vacation.

It's all good, and sometimes a bloggy break is the best medicine :) Hope you had a good time! :) Jen

Everyone needs a break now and then. Sounds like you had a good one! When blogging becomes pressure, it's time to step back until it is fun again. It shouldn't feel like work!
Did you get my comment about your addy? I totally deleted your email by accident so I need the address again. I'm a dope!

I think it is great to just put-it-out-there and be no-nonsense about the times in our lives that we have just had enough. Bravo to you!

Thank you for sharing these images with us. I absolutely love the first one as it is completely after my design heart.

I'm adding you to my favorites!
