Gone But Not Forgotten

A myriad of excuses is the only explanation I can explain for my recent absence from the blogosphere. But really, I hate excuses.

Yes, life got busy, it got hectic. But, um. It does that for everyone. The fact that it did it for me...not special. Or acceptable.

We make time in our lives for the things that matter.

This blog matters.

I promise.

I sometimes forget that people read this thing. I don't understand why anyone would find it remotely interesting. Then last night a friend remarked that I hadn't updated. And I remembered. Sometimes people do read it.

So in my absence I have been busy. I have been to two more concerts. Mr. Ted Nugent and Lady Gaga. I am not sure which provided more entertainment from a people watching perspective, albeit for different reasons, but both were worth the money spent on admission.

I have unpacked, organized, purged, acquired and still find myself being anything but settled. But one thing I can promise. Working from Love it.

My new employer. Amazing. I am going to love the job.

Challenging? Yes.

Hard to explain? Definitely.

Flexible, empowering and dynamic? For sure.

I've crossed two more items off the list.

I ran my 3rd 5k. Well, run being an operative term. My sisters asthma wasn't feeling it in the humidity so I stayed with her and we walked our fair share. So why am I now considering a half Marathon in Vegas?

And that pesky #11. The one thing on the list I thought would never get crossed off. Yeah, I crossed that one off too.

I also read a few more books... reviews below.

Sweet Little Lies (L.A. Candy, #2)Sweet Little Lies by Lauren Conrad

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Totally cheesy but a great easy chic lit read. Especially for Hills fans. If you are like me you spend the majority of the book trying to figure out who is which real life person and what storyline/tabloid article is being alluded to.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I am not sure there are many authors out there more talented than Jen Lancaster. She is purely hilarious. She writes in a way that I can only aspire to.

The Last SongThe Last Song by Nicholas Sparks

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I wanted to hate this book. I wanted to hate it because Perez Hilton says Miley Cyrus is annoying and for whatever reason...I believe him. I wanted to hate the book because Disney asked Nicholas Sparks to write the screenplay/book as a starring vehicle for Miley.

But I loved it. I read the book in 2 days and once I have a free moment I am tracking down the DVD and watching it. Even with the girl I am supposed to hate as the lead character.

Wait, why is it that I hate her?
