i heart long weekends!!

hi blog world!

yes, i have been MIA. for no good reason. lazy i suppose. ( i think we can blame it on the awesomeness of sunshine.......) seriously, once the sun and warmth hits cleveland, you almost have to be outdoors. i  literally have been outside everyday for a week. yes, even sleeping. ha. kidding. (did you seriously think i would sleep outside with bugs and arachnoids???!!!)

ok, first and foremost: kudos to liz from sunny bug world for awarding me the

  3. i HATE people who put up their christmas decorations but still  have their flipping halloween and thanksgiving pumpkins on the porch. seriously.
  4. on the same note....i hate discombobulated christmas lights. they all have to match or be color coordinated....(yes, i am anal like that)
