I'm Back...And a Really Awesome Blog Tour!

So, it looks like today I'm hitting a couple of firsts.

The first night Cruz's elf, Buddy, is back to visit us...well, technically he will be back tomorrow morning, but you know what I mean.

My first workout of the month...granted it's only the 5th, but still. (And let it be said, Kelli kicked my a**.)

My first blog post of December...#slacker.

And my first ever blog tour.

When two of my fave bloggers (and Instagrammers...and Facebookers...and Twitterers - is that a thing?) Lindsay and Leslie asked me to be a part of their blog tour, I said of course! Followed quickly by, what the heck is a blog tour?

And I quickly realized it's awesome. A couple of amazing bloggers feature other amazing bloggers to their readers and then you repeat it...and they repeat it...and their faves repeat it. You get the point.

Basically you get to learn about a lot of other really great blogs, or if they feature a blog you already read, then it simply justifies that you have great taste. Right? Right.

1. What am I working on?
I wish I could say I had a ton of posts at-the-ready, be prepared to be blown away and all that jazz, buuuut that's not the case. I do have tons of ideas, though. And once I get some more time - it's coming soon, I promise you - I'm going to deliver on these great ideas, but until then? I will try to get my blogging on as often as possible. If nothing else, to humor myself.

2. How does my work differ from others in its genre? 
Why do I write/create what I do?
My content is really nothing different than every other blogger out there. I just love to share.  I love to share what interests me, what's on my mind, what I love most in the world. Generally, it's Cruz. Because, well, look at this handsome little fella. Don't tell me you wouldn't blog all about him either.

3. How does my writing/creating process work.
If Cruz does something interesting? I write about it. If he says something funny? I write about it. If I like an outfit, product, restaurant, person, book, shop...I write about it. If I'm really feeling something, whatever that something might be? I write about it. I want to chronicle this amazing little life we have going on right now.

So, that's it. Those are the reasons I blog. I just love it. And I don't care if you think it's lame..because I also love all the ladies I've met through blogging. (And, yes, that's a thing. You "meet" a ton of people blogging, right? Do I still have to justify this?) It's a pretty great community. 

Speaking of those ladies I've met through blogging that I are three of 'em. I promise you won't be disappointed if you check them out.

Check out Laurie/andiamo here

 Say hi to Pamela on Sequins & Seabreezes here

 Get your farm on with Karli here

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Pink & Fab and Martin Manifesto...your gorgeous gals rock. And to the three lovely ladies I mentioned above, you've gotta check them out.

And while you're at it? Have an amazing weekend!


  1. This is fabulous! I mostly love that your posts/process are as unplanned/random as mine. Phew! And the world (at least my little corner of it) LOVES all the stories and pics of your handsome lil' dude! Have a fabulous weekend!

  2. I love that your elf is named Buddy. I would walk around constantly saying hi this is Buddy the elf what's your favorite color!? But then I would be kinda annoying I would wager? Little kid Hunters are the cutest. Ever. I'm looking forward to checking out some new blogs so thank you!

  3. Love this! And I agree with Laurie - Buddy is the perfect elf name ;) Keep the Cruz pictures/stories coming because he is ADORABLE!! Happy Saturday!

  4. I hear ya on the meeting some great people through blogging! I feel like I have to explain it to people every time and when I say "my friend", my husband says "your virtual reality friend"? I'm like noooo! I actually met two bloggers in person a couple weeks ago and still see one bc she lives closer (the other lives in a different state) and my husband met her and her family and now know she is not a serial killer and her family is nice lol.

  5. I cant wait to read about all the fabulous posts you have dreamed up!!! Cruz posts are my favorite - he's just the best!

  6. I always crack up over the elf names everyone comes up with. My sisters kids named their Elf Mr. where did that come from??? Glad you are back!!

  7. Finding the time to blog... it's a real life struggle, yes? Loved this one. I'd write about Cruz often too! What a stud. Thanks for the blogger recommendations! :)


Your comments make me smile! Thanks for taking the time to share some love =)
