Monday Happy Things

I don't like Mondays. They're too many days away from the weekend and they're always too bright. So to bring a little happy to your blog feed on Mondays, I've decided to post some happy things every Monday. Enjoy!

Y'all. If you love hot chocolate but at all, you have to give this a try. I treated myself to one after my Thanksgiving Turkey Trot and that alone was worth running a 5K in 18 degree weather.

One of my favorite things about the holiday season is holiday gift sets. Especially when they involve nail polish...or lip gloss...or eyeliner...or, you get the picture. :)

Apple Pie
No hyperlink needed. This is my very own creation. One of my favorite things to make during the holidays is apple pie and I've already had the chance to make it twice! (Recipe coming soon!)

And honestly, what would be a happy Monday post without a picture of a cute animal?

Hope y'all have a HAPPY MONDAY!

About November 7, I became aware of National Novel Writing Month. Apparently it's a month long push for writers who are working on a novel to write 50,000 words in one month. The cool part is, there's a website and lots of social networking that goes along with it. Since it's already November 9th and I haven't even started, I thought about not joining at all, but why not? Better late to the party than not going at all. I'm not sure I'll be able to write 50,000 words this month but I thought it would be fun to play along anyway. (Especially since BFF Lizy is participating as well.) And as much as I'd love to sit around here writing y'all awesome stuff, I'm still having a bit of blogging writer's block and apparently I have a book to work on. ;)

I'm Back!!!

I did something a little crazy. Try to hide your surprised face. I completely scrapped my 'new' blog. Well, it wasn't really new anymore. Truth be told I'd been writing there for about 2 years but it never really felt like home. Every time I wrote there I felt like I was trying to keep up some sort of image. I felt like it needed to be bloggy, Pinterest-y, search engine-y perfection. And that made it not fun, and kind of boring.

Then a couple weeks ago during a wine-fueled revelation, I decided to scrap it and come back to my roots. And what are my roots, you ask? This perfect, lovely, totally me little blog! Here I feel like I can write what I want and be who I am and not worry about anything else.

What am I going to be writing about, you ask!? Whatever I damn well please! With my old blog I kept thinking I should narrow down a niche to make sure I appealed to a specific audience but with this one it really doesn't matter. Of course it would be nice if people want to read my blog, but I'd rather them read it for my voice and fun posts than for tips and tricks specific to a niche.

I should also share that when I first started the My Everyday Life Blog (the blog I just scrapped), my dad emailed me almost immediately and told me he didn't like it and that I should go back to my old one. As usual, I should have listened. ;)
