With every sunset comes a new day & new possibilities


Big announcement: this week was the last installment of Weekend Update. It was a great run and a huge part of this blog for several months. I've met so many wonderful bloggers as a result! I never thought when I came up with the idea, my little linkup would grow to be as big as it did. I decided to open it up to be co-hosted and unfortunately due to creative differences we've decided to part ways. The linkup was designed to make new friends and that is still my goal. So, I'm continuing on my own way with Monday Morning Gossip.

Monday mornings are rough. So like the water cooler chats you have at the start of the work week, this will be a place to gossip. If you want to link up you can blog about what you did over the weekend, what you're looking forward to this week - life lately!

A button is in the works and will be ready Monday. Be sure to stop by and link up!

In other news, Lent is upon us. Exactly what my soul needs now - a 40-day cleanse ha. This year I am giving up bread (thanks for the idea Mree!) and committing to working out three times a week. Wish me luck! To celebrate Fat Tuesday I tried a new local crawfish joint. Although it looks nasty it was delish.


Annd with Valentine's Day upon us, you deserve a little something. Enter my current giveaway for a chance to win a pretty stack bracelet! A winner will be announced tomorrow.

Lastly, I hit 1,000 followers! Such a big deal to me because I truly love blogging and meeting new people. I believe the blogosphere should be a positive place and each of the 1,000 follower matter to me! Thank you for the follow (if you are), if you aren't, get on it! ;)

we tried to go out for crawfish last night, but didn't quite make it. I did have a hurricane, though, so that should count.

good luck with lent! I just finished the Whole 30 - so 30 days w/o lots of things including grains - so I know it's possible!! But definitely hard :)

Ashley Barnhill said...

Giving up bread?! That is impressive! I love bread!

Agnes Mayer said...

SMD @ lifeaccordingtosteph said...

I've been doing my The Weekend That Was post pretty much since I started my blog. I'm happy to link up to your new Monday Morning Gossip party! Best of luck with it!

Kudos on 1000 followers! You rock!

I'm not giving anything up, but I am committed to 40 minutes of activity a day for 40 days of Lent (46 days, actually).

Mree said...

I'm so proud of you!!! Giving up bread is so hard!! But you can do it. I'm giving up shopping and NO ONE thinks I can do it. I'm determined to proof them wrong!! Hair products excluded!!
I love monday morning gossip! What a great idea.

Claire Kiefer said...

Excited for your new venture. :) And a little sad that I did nothing to celebrate Mardi Gras! It wasn't in the cards this year but one of these years I'm gonna throw a party complete with beads, king cake, & zydeco . . . it's gonna happen!

Tiara Wasner said...

Congrats on the 1,000 followers and new linkup adventure! I'm giving up coffee. So like bread it's going to be tough, but we can do it :)

Josie said...

I'm so excited about your new Monday feature! And it's totally time for Lent -- I need to kick the rest of this holiday weight stat. I'm giving up chocolate, peanut butter (I KNOW), and ordering food in. It's going to be a rough 40 days, haha.
