As I’m sure you’ve noticed, if you have still been visiting, that I have been a terrible blogger as of lately. I feel like I’ve been letting down my readers and my sponsors, and I feel like a complete failure for not keeping up.
I’m going to share something very personal here, which I usually don’t do, but I want you all to get to know me and understand me a bit better. I suffer from depression, and it affects my entire life. I am medicated, but I still suffer from intense mood swings and often feel like I am in over my head with everything I have going on in my life.

So I had planned to do a Friday nail linkup showing off my Easter nail look using colors from Julep’s February box, and then tomorrow showing off my Easter outfit. Guess it’s not happening. For some reason I can not upload my photos into WordPress. I’m not sure what’s going on, but who does blog posts without pictures?!
Also, you will notice a huge decline in quality of the photos on my blog (if I’m ever able to post them), because I am again having problems connecting my good DSLR camera to the computer. I’ve tried two different cords and a cheap card reader, but the cords don’t work and the card reader is shitty. Read more...(328 words, 1 image, estimated 1:19 mins reading time)

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, I’ve pulled a major disappearing act on the blog. I wish I had a great reason, like that I was on vacation in Cabo or in the middle of the Amazon with no internet connection, but sadly I have no good excuse.
Call it blog burnout, but I started spending more and more time away from the computer. As a certified internet addict, I thought I may explode or something, but it actually felt good. Really, really good. The longer I spent away from the computer (no checking emails or anything!) the harder it was to think about logging on and facing my growing piles of emails and blog posts.

So you may have noticed the website was down for a day, but we are back up and running smoothly. I also took a “mental health break” over the past few days, meaning I actually stepped away from the computer and spent some time with my family and some much needed time out of the house.
This winter has been a rough one. Not so much in terms of weather, although all the snow does get to me. It is more the fact of being a one-car household and the fact that I’m not currently driving. As anyone who’s been in this situation knows, the winters are long and brutal and I don’t get out of the house much because of it. Read more...(376 words, 1 image, estimated 1:30 mins reading time)

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of hzfweb. All opinions are 100% mine.
Whether they’re a blogger or not, every new mom is concerned about her baby’s growth. Are they growing fast enough? Are they tall enough? Do they weigh enough?
At pediatrician visits, they take the baby’s height and weight and put it into a growth chart, which gets the baby’s growth percentile that shows us where our baby stands compared to others of his age and the national average. New moms rely on these growth charts to check up on how their baby is growing. We usually only get to see these every few months at well-baby visits, but now there is a way to generate a growth chart at anytime – right on your blog!
