What I did when I wasn't here

I'm baaaaaaack. I missed you.

I needed a break, y'all. I was stretched too thin and making poor choices left and right and I'm not about that life. Since I tapped the brakes on the blog-train, I had so much extra time (for activities!) to do a bunch of things on my to-do list, like:

Hang art.

I wanna dance!

One of my favorite pictures ev that my friend ChelsCon Photography took.

Paint walls. 

I'll do a tutorial for this shiz latah.

Write a book. Well maybe not an entire book, but I've started. Getting ready to cross that one off the ol' bucket list

Learn French. I mean I started to learn French, but I haven't mastered it yet. What is this, The Matrix? Gimme some time. They're worse about not pronouncing letters than we are, but at least there's some consistency as opposed to how superfucked English is. It's rough eating cookie dough with a cough, although I've had a sudden breakthrough and determined I've had enough. It's tough being this thorough. I mean, seriously.

I also decorated a lil bit. I like to call this wall "why a man will never live here".

WHATEVER,  I like flowers. And rainbow chairs. IDGAF. 

Out of sheer convenience, I also started lining up the shoes I wear the most often downstairs by my door rather than the jumbled mess I used to trip over and curse the gods. 

This is shocking, but it turns out walking down stairs with a toddler and a gym bag in 5-6" heels is a death wish. I could never be a princess. I mean I could, but it would be more along the lines of a rough and tumble princess that doesn't fit the mold and all the other princesses would make fun and laugh at me, but I'd totally win the heart of the prince in the end with my quirky charm, interesting back story and oddly specific skillset (Heyo!), that I would use to thwart the antagonist's evil plot. 

And we can't forget about that time I bought a basil plant, promptly killed it, brought it back to life, and killed it again.

Nailed it.

The coolest thing that happened during my furlough was that we got a little visit from Thor and Captain America and they left souvenirs.

Lights are from Target

Next on my list is to finish out my bathroom - just need to stain the cabinets and hang art, and then paint my kiddo's toy closet. It's his little Harry Potter closet under the stairs, except I don't make him sleep in there. I'm gonna do a superhero theme, I mean I pretty much have to now. (Does anyone out there illustrate comic books? Email me if so, I have some questions about another project I want to start.)

Another goal is to set all of my clocks to read the same time. Dream big, folks. It's all about setting realistic goals.
