1. Hello, HELLO. Yikes, I didn't mean to take so much time off of blogging but what's done is done. To those of you that thought you'd gotten rid of me for good - my apologies! I'm back in action for the time being. Any blog topics you'd like me to attempt to tackle? Guessing not but thought I'd ask ...

2. As you probably guessed I did not take the photo above but my lovely sister-in-law took it on Christmas day in Wichita. I could dedicate many a post to our travels and return but I'll just pick up right here in the present tense. Yay for January. Or shall I say Janu-Arie? I shall, regrettably.

3. Speaking of the Bachelor - Arie might be a big fat disappointment but I'm thrilled that Ashley is back to her recaps - the funniest recaps in ALL of the internet land. Sharleen is another favorite and if she ever leaves us - I'll live. Barely. Oh, my favorite ladies are Becca K, Tia, and Seinne. Not in any particular order.

4. And in one final blog nod ... these gave me a good and hearty chuckle.

5. I don't know how I've made it this far without addressing one of my favorite hot topics: the weather. It's unseasonably cold here in Florida (coldest night in eight years last night, according to the local news!) and at a frigid 59 degrees this afternoon the bundled up kids barely made it from the car to the house after school. I'm not sure how we're ever going to survive a real winter when the time comes (and it's coming!). If you could spare a prayer for future us - we would be much obliged.

6. I have been keeping warm wearing these comfy black jeans complete with strategic holes in case you're in the market for something similar or identical. The reviews back me up! I've been eyeing this shirt for months and months and I'm shocked that now that it's 40% off there are still lots of sizes still in stock. No time like the present, Patton.

7. The cold/dry Kansas weather almost did my skin in but took advantage of a holiday sale and placed an emergency Ole Henriksen order and got things remedied asap.

Bonus Take: I don't know how to adequately thank you all for your kind comments, emails, prayers, and cards following my last blog post re: Simon's sweet mom. Simon and I were so touched and appreciate your thoughtfulness so very much. Thank you!!

Happy Friday!!

Linking up with Kelly!

  1. Yay! Miss your posts, Grace! Didn't you once mention that there will be another move soon in the near future? I know it's hard moving around like that. I was an air force brat growing up so I know what that's like.

  2. Yay, SO happy you are back to blog land! Especially since it’s Bach season. The blog recaps are what keep me going. Do you read Lincee’s (I Hate Green Beans) recaps or listen to her podcast? Hysterical. Also love your sale tips, and seeing what your adorable family is up to. Welcome back!

  3. So happy you're back! Arie is one massive disappointment, yes. I literally cringe every time he opens his mouth to speak...or kiss, for that matter. Praying that wherever you move to, the first winter is a mild one. :o) Can't wait to see how you design your new abode!

  4. Grace, what skin care line or product did you use to re-hydrate? Can't seem to keep my face moisturized this winter with the crazy cold weather!

  5. Those jeans look super comfy.. I am wearing the athleta jeans everyday right now because they are so forgiving and my postpartum with #5 bod needs all the forgiveness 😂

  6. It's so funny how cold 59 feels when you are not use to it ;) Here in Texas our winter has been all over the place and I noticed that I am more cold here then when we were skiing over Christmas break.

    1. I washed them no problem - didn’t dry them though! Which is the usual with my jeans. :)

  11. I was in your neck of the woods this week! I heard that same news report on the weather. I am from Ohio so it felt warm, but we could have used a few more degrees at the pool!
