Breaking My Radio Silence

What have I been up to in the past few months since I blogged? Well, a lot. A lot of good and a lot of not so good - I've definitely gone through some tough times recently (two funerals, one being my grandmother), but I've had some pretty great times, too (new wedding dressie and wedding diet success!). It's nice to take a step back and take a breather, but it's more than nice to come back to blogging. I don't want to recap all that's been happening, but I'll let you in on some more recent things that I've been up to.


A new laptop! I was handed this lovely computer down and it is sure a lot bigger than my last little netbook thing. The other computer was nice, but it was so small that it didn't even have a CD drive! This is brand new, big and pretty, and I'll definitely put it to good use blogging (and watching Game of Thrones).


Comfies! If you weren't already aware, the midwest hasn't caught onto this "spring" season this year. As I type, I'm watching heavy snow come down at the farm as the start of another "4-8 inches over night." At the end of April. Soo - if mother nature is keeping the cold weather going, I'll keep the comfy activities coming. Mollie Makes, my favorite magazine lately, and a new one by the same creators - The Simple Things. I really like that new one, but it's kind of a tease, because all the articles have to do with spring time. Blueberry tea and my latest obsession, lavender and lemon scented candles.


New game new game new game!! Nothing like finishing one Japanese dungeon crawler (Etrian Odyssey IV) and starting a new one. Soul Hackers will be the first official SMT game that I've played. Actually, I gotta get moving - I want to start playing as soon as I'm done with this entry. 


Some Soul Hackers genius. Humor in the 90s applicable to today as well.


And lastly, my contribution to the cyber punk atmosphere in Soul Hackers: acid washed shorts. Because why not.

Now, I'm going to go pour another mug of coffee (with the peppermint mocha creamer Markie picked out "since it feels like Christmas out there, we might as well play along"), fill a bowl with popcorn, and play some SMT. (NEXT TIME ON MEMADONNA: I detail why I'll marry Tyrion Lannister the Imp after only watching five episodes of Game of Thrones, I write a love letter to Cassey Ho of Blogilates for kicking my butt into shape, and I also write a love letter to Lush sea salt spray.)

    2. Awesome! I was doing really good with eating well, going to the gym, and hooping to get healthy, but I think this weather has me in a rut now. Can't wait to hear what you've been up to!

  2. Wow, you look great! You've inspired me to try pilates via blogilates, since I'm having a hard time getting to the gym between work and prepping for finals.

    1. Thank you! Yeah, it's great for when you don't have time to leave anywhere and when the weather is too cruddy to just go outside. :)
