She's Back!

"Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." ~Dr. Seuss
Here I am back in blogland.

So, how's everyone doing? What have I missed? I've tried to keep up with you via Twitter, but some of you don't have it and I don't know why so I feel so out of the loop!

I'm really excited for this new blog of mine because it's just for me. I think that when I blogged at "That Girl & Her Pug" it eventually became about doing it for other people or watching what I said so I didn't offend anyone. Ultimately, that's why I decided to take a step back - because I wasn't being true to who I was and what I wanted to say. None of that crap here, though. For reals.

So, I know you're dying to know what I've been up to the last few months - right? Don't answer that unless the answer happens to be "yes", ok?

Here's a little rundown for you{because I still like lists}:

1. I completely changed careers. Like 180 degrees of a change. It's interesting and that's all I'll say about that.

2. I've lost a total of 33.5 pounds now and I'm really in high gear so there's no stopping me. In fact, yesterday I just had a "clean out my closet because these fat clothes don't fit me anymore" party. What? Like you've never been to one of those? Ok, so I was the only guest, but it was fun. And since I didn't want the clothes left in there to feel lonely, I went shopping. It's what I do.

3. I've started running and I'm determined to do a 1/2 marathon by December. I never thought this was something I would do, but I was inspired by so many of you to start running and I'm not looking back.

4. I got a new bed! This may not seem significant, but for me it's been a life changer. I love my new bed and I feel like I sleep better and have a better attitude because of it.

5. I've been church hunting. I've been to a few and I'm still trying to settle, so hopefully I'll find "the one" pretty soon because I miss having a church home. You really don't know what you have in one until you don't have it anymore.

So, there's my life from January - May in a heavily condensed nutshell.

Please bear with me as I get the blog beautified - y'all know that's never been my strong suit in life. HTML still sounds like an abbreviation for a venereal disease to me, but I'm trying to learn.

Also, I've got a big giveaway coming up sometime this week or next, so stay tuned for that!

Otherwise, I'm going to start making the rounds to my very favorite blogs and hoping to discover some new ones along the way. If you have any suggestions please pass them on to me!

Have a great Monday!
