Leslie…OUT

No I am not having another mental breakdown. I mean yes I am..I have breakdowns everyday..they usually occur in the laundry room while hanging all the laundry. Just letting you know I will probably be M.I.A for the rest of the year. Doing the Holiday and family thing. Also, My Birthday falls on Christmas Eve. […]

Christmas Sugar Cookies

So I had an argument with my 2 alter egos. I had the unrealistic cook on my left shoulder and the practical cook on my right. Oh and they had it out. But thank God for my sanity, the nice little practical cook won this year. I was asked to make sugar cookies for my […]

HI..confession

Well, well, well…fancy meeting you here. Been a while huh? Santa came early, I have my nice new MAC Book Pro. I am still learning my way around it. So bear with me. I must admit, I have enjoyed my break from blogging. So much that I actually was going to call it quits. We […]

DEAD COMPUTER

Just letting you know I will probably be M.I.A for the rest of the year. Doing the Holiday and family thing. Also, My Birthday falls on Christmas Eve. And how dare you ask me how old I am! You never ask a lady how old she is(and I use the term lady very loosely..you should hear how loud I can burp). I will say that I will be celebrating my 5th anniversary of my 29th birthday. umm huh. And then there is Christmas and New Years. Busy Busy Busy.
So I wish you all a very Happy Holiday Season. I hope your homes are filled with love, laughter, family, friends and food!!!!

So I had an argument with my 2 alter egos. I had the unrealistic cook on my left shoulder and the practical cook on my right. Oh and they had it out. But thank God for my sanity, the nice little practical cook won this year. I was asked to make sugar cookies for my my sons class. You know, a whole bunch of 6 and 7 year olds..the ones who don’t give a damn what the cookies actually looklike..the only requirement is they have some sorts of sprinkly or shiny crap on them. My unrealistic cooked wanted me to make fancy and gorgeous decorated cookies. But like I said, Mrs. Practical won!!! Yaaahooo. So I present to you my simply decorated sugar cookies. Easy peasy.

HI..confession

Well, well, well…fancy meeting you here. Been a while huh?

Santa came early, I have my nice new MAC Book Pro. I am still learning my way around it. So bear with me.
I must admit, I have enjoyed my break from blogging. So much that I actually was going to call it quits. We all know how very time consuming it is. I felt like my blog was my first priority..I felt like y’alls blogs were also top priority in my life. I feel guilty if I don’t visit each and every one of your blogs on a daily basis. I feel like if I don’t go to your blog you wont come to mine. That is my number one pet peeve of blogging..the politics. We all might not admit it, but that is how it works, and I can’t stand it. So in order me for to continue to blog, I have to come to terms that I cant do it all. I cant blog..answer ALL comments..comment on all of your blogs..wipe my kids asses..do laundry..play Mom, play wife and work all at the same time. I honestly don’t know how some of you do it. You must be SUPER bloggers. Take the Pioneer Woman for example. I don’t go to her blog. You know why? I am jealous. She must be super human. How does she do it? Seriously? Home schooling, kids, mega blog with daily posts on multiple subjects. Does she have some secret elves that help her? Cause if so, I want one or two..ah hell, make it 3. I want to continue to blog. But please, if I don’t leave a comment on your blog, that doesn’t mean I am not reading and I don’t love you. It just means I am trying to keep some sanity in my life and not let blogging run my life. K?
Who is to thank for my blogging return? My sister. When I told her that I was going to stop blogging, her response was…”You can’t, you just can’t!” She is my older sister, I have to listen to the Mighty Wise One! So I continue to blog. I continue to blog until my next mental breakdown!!!
I leave you with some of our Christmas photos. The wonderful Kelly Noel took them.
