I knew it, I knew it, I knew it, but yesterday you all proved you're the best group of readers around. I just kept hanging out in the comments and was all like: WUT. Awesome. Me too! Prego feet swelling out of heels? Oh, been there, felt that pain. She's so cool. I totally relate! Go Cyclones! Um, please just keep typing and talking to me because I feel like we could be best friends. Snickerdoodle Macchiatos? NEED.
And then there were some of these crazy little comments about mom-style posts and hair tutorials and recipes and in those moments I was all like: Screeeeeeeech. Halt. WUT. Why. No. You be cray.
Honestly, I'm shocked that any of you would want to hear that kind of stuff from me! I need to do some serious thinking on that. I can for sure guarantee you that there will be no selfies of me. I did finally give in and try StitchFix* the other day, and true confessions, I tried taking a selfie of me in some of the clothes to share with you all and no. N.O. Eli started crying when I showed him the picture. Or maybe that was because he hit his head with his new toy hammer, but whatever. I even tried closing my eyes, and looking down, and sticking my hand in my pocket. Those tricks DO NOT WORK. I do plan on showing you all how StitchFix went down for me since a few of you have asked, but there most definitely will not be any of those selfies in there. It might just break the internet. And we can't have that.
But, if style/recipes/hair is what the readers want, then that's what the readers will (maybe) get. You guys gave me tons of good ideas and I'm super excited about sharing some new stuff. I feel like I'm bursting at the seams (of my boring, non-blog-worthy wardrobe) with ideas for blog content, so I need to get organized and find some time to really hash out the direction of the blog. LOTS of you asked for more DIY's and that's a tough one for me. I love DIY, but really struggle with building the tutorials. I think it's because I like get things done as fast as possible, and it takes a lot longer if I'm trying to snap photos and break it down into simple steps for the bloggy. And sometimes, there is truly not method to my madness, so it's not blogable, you know? I love that you guys want more DIYs, but I'm going to be upfront, likely that will always be about 25 percent of the content here. But it will be here, so I hope you'll stick around.
I do hope to keep talking a bit more about home design and our house, sharing Eli updates and keep on keepin' on with my tales of my many struggles and few triumphs in motherhood. Those posts ain't going away any time soon. And of course, This Is How I Feel is a staple around here and always will be.
Oh! And I meant to mention, today is technically a NMC (New Mom Confessions) but the person who was going to be posting today actually had her second baby yesterday, so after thinking long and hard about it, I decided to let her off the hook. But I have a confession. Only one though because it's so embarrassing, mmmmk? The other day, I threw up (food poisoning) in the bathroom at an event I was at and couldn't leave from. Which I can totally recover from. But I also peed a little at the same time and did not have a new pair of pants.
Yes folks, this is the glamorous life after this kid.
