oh my.

oh. my. god. becky. look at how long this blog has sat.

It’s an ongoing theme, isn’t it? Let the blog sit. Post on the blog about how long I’ve let the blog sit. Oh well. Why break routine now, huh?

Sadly, there is nothing exciting to update. No pretty pictures to post, because who really knows the last time a camera other than my phone has sat in my hands? So cell phone photos it is….

I finished a quilt….after *cough* two years *cough*

Tula Pink Anchors Aweigh

This sucker was a labor of love and slightly terrifying as the recipient had no idea it was coming her way. I knew the nautical theme was a perfect fit, but everything else was a big fat question mark. Two years of love…and what if she hated it?! I handed it over last weekend and I think it’s safe to say that it was very well received. PHEW!

herringbone baby quilt

And then I got all twitchy and remembered how much I love to sew, so I am whipping up this little baby quilt as another surprise gift. Turns out, quilt math is super important and maybe I shouldn’t avoid it as much as I do, as this little guy is turning into the weirdest sized quilt. It’s the thought that counts.


And I just really want to tell you about my most favorite new addiction….blackberry serrano yogurt. Yes. and Yes. Go now and try it.

Her name is Beyonce

Her name is Beyonce

And then Beyonce happened. I accidentally bought a new car. Oops. (yes, her name is Beyonce) Ok, it wasn’t really an accident. We’ve been in discussion to take this step for quite some time….it was So. Hard. for me to get rid of my Civic. I loved that little car so very much, and she still had the new car shine….but little is the key word. We needed something a bit bigger. And since I am sort of a financial badass with our moola (if I do say so myself) we were able to make a fabulous trade to get this badass Beyonce. And I am in loooooove. This car is sooo perfect for me, and the icing on the cake is little ‘ol me waltzed into the dealership flying solo, and bought this all on my own, reveling in my negotiating prowess. RAWR. You know the commercial where the woman puts her feet on the desk and asks “what can you do for me?” I might have put my feet on their desks.

Want to know who does not love Beyonce?

Where's my other car?

Tinsley does not love Beyonce. at all.


Speaking of dogs. I’ve been spending my time with lots of them. It’s what I do. It’s what I love. Man, is it exhausting. But look at that face! Totally worth it!

fit body fit mind

And I am still getting my sweat on. I cannot even believe I have been committed to fitness for over a year now. It has taken a loooooong time (ummmm, my whole life?) but something has finally clicked and I love knowing that it is now just a part of my life. It still takes a lot of effort, and lately it has been a serious struggle trying to fit fitness into a schedule that consists of very long days on my feet, but I just make it work. Somehow. Some way.

And that, my friends, is why I haven’t updated my blog. Because my world is pretty boring HA! But my mom loves an update (Hi Mom!) so we’ll let the blog live on for my mom, my only reader 🙂
