So I haven’t kept up with my blogging. Shocking, I know! I am going to give credit to my girl Wendi over at This, That and the Other Thang for inspiring me to finally get back on the blogging track. (By the way, do yourself a favor and go follow her. She’s the best.)
This summer has been crazy busy for me. I can’t remember the last day where I had absolutely nothing planned and don’t know when my next free day will be. But I’m definitely not complaining. This summer has been insanely fun even when the heat’s become unbearable. (If we could stop with the 90 degree weather, that’d be great!)
Even though I’ve been really busy I want to stop neglecting this blog. But first I’d like to play some catch up with all the things that have been going on with me lately and all the ridiculous thoughts I’ve had.
Nothing made me realize just how old I am more than my most recent trip to Miami. I went to Miami for a bachelorette party two weeks ago. It was so much fun. I drank some awesome drinks, ate delicious food, and lounged by the beach/pool all day. All in all it was a fantastic vacation but oh boy did it take a lot out of me! Partying for three nights straight was more than my 30-year-old self could handle. I’m pretty sure I got all my partying out for the rest of 2016.
I climbed an actual mountain last month. Mount Tammany on the Delaware Water Gap to be exact. It was tiring and there were a few times while climbing up that I thought I was going to die but ultimately it was so worth it. The view was amazing and when we got back to the bottom there was a river where we could go swimming. While I despise exercising normally, I definitely think that climbing mountains could be my thing. If you don’t walk away from the new Ghostbusters a little in love with Kate McKinnon, I question whether you’re really human or not. Seriously though, go see the new Ghostbusters movie. The trailer doesn’t do it justice at all. It was highly entertaining and Kate McKinnon is AMAZING!!
I hate all of my family and friends on FB. If you think I may be referring to you, then I am definitely referring to you. Just SHUT UP! You are all idiots and absolutely no one cares about your political views. Also, let me introduce you to the site snopes.com. Let it become your new best friend.
Speaking of political rants, this entire election just leaves me sad and angry. I don’t want to get into it too much cause I don’t want to be like my dumb FB friends I was talking about before, but this election is just depressing. I genuinely fear for the country I live in.
And that’s what you missed. Well there’s definitely some other stuff going on but I’ll save those things for their own posts. For now I’m just happy to be back and can’t wait to start blogging again.
One of the reasons I left Facebook was for that exact reason. I thought to myself the other day, “Maybe when the election is over, the tirades will stop.” HAH expect to see political rants, whether Hillary OR Trump become president, for the next 4-8 years.
Sadly, I feel like the political rants are never going away. I still use FB to connect with people I can’t see often and it’s great for planning events. So I wouldn’t completely delete it but I have unfollowed SO many people.
I think event planning is the downside, I’ve realized. I’m a bridesmaid for a friend and I’m already wondering how I’m going to contact people to invite to her events like the bridal shower and bachelorette party haha
When I did my sister’s wedding planning, I sent out emails for the bach party so there could be correspondence about dates and things we’d be doing, etc. For the shower, I mailed out actual invitations that I got from Party City. I only like using FB for small things like a bday dinner or something.
Welcome back! Yes, it seems that this summer is crazy busy for many people, especially with the presidential campaigns and everything. Hope this fever (and literally, this heat!) will die down soon. Same goes for Pokémon Go!
…and yes! Kate McKinnon’s character in Ghostbusters was my absolute favorite. She’s hilarious! 😀
Ugh the heat is unbearable here. Fall can’t come here fast enough.
Happy to have you back blogging! I’ve been in love with Kate McKinnon since I first seen her Hillary Clinton impression and also entirely agree with you about Facebook miss you miss you too
Kate McKinnon is the best part of SNL right now. She’s awesome!
Hahaha I was trying to find Ghostbusters in English this rainy day because I prefer it to the Spanish voiceover. We have theaters with Spanish subtitles because sometimes they don’t like it either. Basically everyone here is like Trump sucks too hahahaha! Seriously I think you would like Latin America.
I am thinking more and more I would like Latin America as well. America just isn’t doing it for me anymore, haha.
You, my dear, ARE THE BESTEST OF THE BEST! Welcome back, chica bonita! First all, thank you for your incredibly kind words. You seriously just made my day. And night. And week. Secondly, holy awesome Batman! Super jealous you got to go to Miami (and I probably without a doubt would have been right there with you post-Miami trip—we are getting oldish, girl.) Major high-five for climbing a frickin’ mountain too! Geesh! Lastly, Kate McKinnon is my spirit animal and will SNAP if I see another political post on the ‘book. No more. No. More. So glad you have you back, hon! xoxoxo
Haha, it’s crazy how much I always agree with your posts so much.
FYI, I wanna thank you for being one of the few people on FB who manages to avoid the political rants. It’s refreshing.
Haha! Pretty sure we’re the same person. And you are so welcome, girly! Ugh I am SOOOO over all of this political mumbo jumbo. Two more months. Just two more months…
It sounds like you’ve been having a great time! Well done on climbing a mountain!
I can only imagine what you guys are going through with this election. I thought the Scottish independence referendum was bad, and the EU one was even worse. However, the fact that a certain person might become President, and that (were I American) some people I know might actually support this, would drive me to despair.
Yea, things have been rough where you live as well. It would be comical if it wasn’t so sad. I am genuinely scared for where this country is headed.
It always makes me happy when I read your posts! x
Aww thank you! I’m glad you enjoy them.
the same goes for me. Its like a breath of fresh air lol!
