I Never Thought I'd...

Every single day I open this blog and start writing, and nine times out of ten I quit halfway through. I feel like I've lost my blogging voice and I don't know how to get it back. I'm working on it though. I keep hoping for some kind of break through, something that gives me all the answers and puts me back in the place I was at a year ago. I refuse to accept that I may never get back there, it just might take some more time.

So that's where I'm at.. but today is fun because Juliette made a link-up and I kind of couldn't say no to participating. Let's do this!

The Other Juliette

I Never Thought I'd...


... do another link-up. Only for my BFF J. Also, sorry Faith but Weekend Shenanigans and I broke up and we are never getting back together. Ever.

... spend over 2 years working outside of the retail world. Fashion is in my blood and I'm itching to get back. Only time will tell!

... learn how to ski, and love it. I only went twice this Winter, but I can't to spend more time on the slopes next season!


... like Taylor Swift, but then I watched this video and she's just so genuinely sweet and it made my heart smile. Also, she awkward dances and so do I.

... love my life in Denver as much as I do. For years, I couldn't wait to get out and move somewhere else. Now I'm content to be here for as long as I can.

... have three tattoos and get annoyed when people talk trash about them. For a long time they were a non issue for me, and now I feel passionate about mine and how much I love them.


... learn to live without cable. The Bravo withdrawals are real, but I've found so much more productive ways to use my time.

... enjoy cooking and eating bacon. For almost my entire life I have told everyone that I hate it and won't eat anything that contains it. Now you can give me all of the bacon, please and thanks.


... fall back into the struggle of working out. Last year, I worked out 6 days a week for several months. Now, I'm finding it hard to get there at all. It's on my list of things to fix!

...  enjoy the Whole30. It has really jump started my desire to eat healthy, whole foods and be aware of what I'm putting into my body.

... like cats. I've always been a dog person and I still am, but cats are growing on me and I think I have to give credit to Grumpy Cat for that revelation.


... miss GIFs the most about not blogging. Without blogging I have no reason to use these little nuggets of entertainment and that is a travesty.

Okay, I'm done now. Happy Thursday! KThanksBye.

  1. Did you know that you can send GIFs via iMessage? I know. Use them while texting your BFFs. It's changed my life.

  5. How in the world do tattoos sneak up like that? I can't believe how much I love mine (good thing because they aren't understated) but when someone judges me based on them I want to drag them out to my car and make them spend the day realizing I'm not a hoodlum, white trash, a slut, or a criminal (because people literally think that in the small, conservative town I'm from).

  6. What would the blogging world do without gifs haha.

    So it's taking everything I have to NOT end my blog. It's so much pressure! It started out as my home away from home & sometimes I borderline hate opening up my blogger. I don't know what to do! Help me...

  7. I love that a) you blogged b) you tossed in gifs and c) that you've finally come around to bacon! "Bacon, the only reason I am not a vegetarian."

  8. I don't think you've lost your voice at all, buttercup :)))
    Can't wait to hear how Whole 30 is going! And honestly when people trash tattoos I feel a little ill. Which is dramatic, but true. How DARE they. And I have a JESUS TATTOO so leave me the hell alone ;)

  15. You are a much better woman than I am to even attempt going without Bravo!

  16. Oooooh gracious it makes me happy to see you posting. And WHAT how do you go without Bravo? I wish I could like record all the housewives and send them to you. Oh, and you can send me gifs all you want, all day long. I'd be the happiest girl in all the land.

  17. I'm losing my voice too. Maybe it's something in the water. Or let's blame it on the altitude? Or maybe we're just too busy loving real life? I think I'll go with that.

    Can I hire you to dress me everyday? Does that count? I'll only hire you if you can make my yoga pants look stylish though.

    AND WAAA ... I usually am ready to hightail it out of whatever city we're in but I'm going to miss it here :( Thank you for being a major reason why the Big D feels like home <3

  18. I lost my blogging voice for a while and am finally getting back to it. So, I can relate.

    I love the GIFS.

    I found you on Bloglovin'

  19. You... didn't eat bacon?!?! Girl, make up for lost time! I used to not eat red meat and then I ate it any chance I had. I'm in a bit of a blogging slump too. It's hard to regain focus when you're just not into it.

  20. Girlie - it looks to me like you got your blogging voice back! :) I missed you!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. These posts are my favorite! And seriously, what did anyone do before GIFs?

    ReplyDelete
  22. I don't think you've lost your voice, I just think you are enjoying life outside of blogging! I knew one day you would really start enjoying Denver, and I'm happy you are doing so well. Eating better is more important than working out, so just wait until you find the motivation to workout again. Yay for bacon! I knew you would cave one day!

  23. I'm glad you like Taylor Swift, she is my absolute favorrrrrite. I'm currently in the workout struggle as well. I'd love to visit Denver & I really enjoy what you've mentioned on here :)

    Double also, lets get our heads back in the game on this workout and eating clean shit. Yeah, I said shit. Oops.
