Dun Dun Dunnnn

Let me first start out by saying that oh my gosh, it's going to be a busy semester. Not only are classes about to start for the spring (I'm taking 2 grad courses), but work is also very busy this time of year. Usually I only get "slow" at work in the month of February and September. Not totally sure why that is. But none the less, I am busy the majority of the year with little breaks.

I definitely felt the busy-ness yesterday. When I got home from work, I took a shower, ate dinner, and then went to bed. It was much needed. I slept like a baby. I'm only telling you this so that if my blogging slacks a tiny bit (hopefully it doesn't) then that's why. All of that being said, sometimes I like to be sneaky and publish posts like today.
Since I want to see who truly reads my blog on the reg, I am requiring anyone who wants to win this giveaway that I'm hosting to leave a comment on today's blog post (this one)! I know, I know... maybe everyone isn't a fan of my tricks. I like this idea because I would much rather a dedicated reader win the giveaway than someone random. I truly and honestly appreciate my readers and want to reward y'all! You can comment anything your little ole heart desires.

Happy hump day.

  1. I've been going to the gym and watching Scandal after work everyday and it's been SO nice! I am almost a little bummed about my classes starting, but trying to remember that the sooner it starts, the sooner I can finish the semester and that will be another semester down. It's always nice to "meet" another adult student that works full time.
    Oh, and I guess enter me in the giveaway too!

  21. I really want to win that bag....but you know I love your blog anyway!! Have you seen The Croods (the movie your gif is from)? It's hilarious!! It's a kid's movie, but it's so good and I highly recommend you watch it if you haven't. I mean, Ryan Reynolds does a voice of one of the characters. It's already a winner!

  29. Yay, I especially like your trick because I noticed my comment wasn't published the other day on your giveaway post! I was using GOAir wifi on the flight to Colorado so I'm sure it had something to do with that, grrr lol.
