Hi there...
Remember me? The once faithful blogger about my life, paired with a few good recipes and occasional upload from Pinterest?
Well I'm back!

I am a creature of habit.
I like a good routine, and when my routine gets out of whack, so does my normalcy.
So when I started working 10-12 hour days the last few weeks
I quickly reverted back to the Lindsey from 3 years ago
The one who didn't blog and the one who didn't work out

I realized this weekend that I do not want to fall back victim to that lifestyle again, so I vowed to myself this week that I will

* spend more time with Justin *
* get back into the gym 4-5 days a week*
*not stay in the office past 6pm*
*start blogging again*

So without further adieu, I thought I could do a quick recap since the last blog post and what has been going on in my life...
because while the ol' blog might have been on a hiatus, luckily my life was anything but that!

Our family took our annual trip to Holiday Valley
We had a limited amount of snow when we arrived, but we still got by and had a blast like always

I celebrated my 29th birthday
with the best family and friends a girl could ask for

added colorful new items to my spring/summer wardrobe
celebrated the wonderful life of my great grandma
hung out with 2 of my favorite little munchkins
became addicted to Snyder Pretzel Bites: Hot Buffalo Wing flavor
Made sweet treats for my co-workers
took up a new obsession of painting my nails
and took a road trip to Indy {a 6 hr roundtrip drive in a day} for a camera class

oh yea... and I have fallen victim to this sweet little game as well!
are you playing? Let me know your user name and we can start a game!

So now that you are all caught up on my life over the past few weeks...
what have you been up to? What have I missed in the social media world???

I've missed you all, and can't wait to get back into a routine again!

Yay, Lindsey is back!! ;-) Loved the recap. Your trips to Winter Valley always look like SOOO much fun. And I hope your family is doing well after your Grandma's passing. Okay, and one more thing-- how are those birthday cake oreos?? I HONESTLY have seriously considering buying a package, enjoying two (maaaaybe three) cookies, and then throwing the rest away (I just CANNOT be trusted with Oreos...) Hope you get back into your groove quickly and painlessly! :-)

Glad you're back! :)

I tried the birthday Oreos at your request and they are delicious!!

Also those buffalo wing pretzels. My favorite snack EVER. I can eat a bag of them in about 2 days. So bad, but so good.

I'm addicted to Draw Something too mateyab32

glad to have you back!
I live for routines and I don't like when I have to break them.

I have been obsessed with nail polishes lately- and I barely have any nails. plus we have a great nail polish taste! Essie is my fav.

Domesticated-Bliss said...

Oy! I love those Buffalo pretzel bites! Welcome back!

Hilary Lane said...

I feel like I could have written this!! My once 8 hour days have turned into 8 hour days at the office plus 4-5 hours of work at home afterwards. I feel like the worst blogger & girlfriend!! Those nail polishes are cute! & your vacay looks like so much fun!

Jenn @ West Sac Honey said...

Good for you I feel you on the normalcy schedule.. I need to get back on the workout train too...

P.S. still cracking up thinking about the tadpole drawing you did!

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

Welcome back!! It looks and sounds like you've been one busy girl!

Sara said...

Happy late Birthday! I am glad to hear things are going well! :)

Melissa said...

yay! you're back. happy 29th, it will be a great year. i cannot believe i will be 30 this year. jealous of your ski trip, we have been dying to go snowboarding but with two kids now it seems impossible.

and, i am so sorry to hear about your grandma. it is never easy but losing a grandma is one of the hardest things i have ever dealt with.
