I have never ever wanted to take a cruise after seeing how often people get sick, oh and have you seen the Titanic? Well that all changed whenever I heard about this amazing The Walking Dead themed cruise, if only I had a few extra bucks!

Then of course there is this beyond delicious looking BLT, which I could probably eat all day everyday for the rest of forever.

If I hadn’t recently made some coasters that I fell in love with I would be all over making some of these Diy moon phases coasters because they are so fun!Diy moon phases coasters

This post of 50 really great free fonts will make you smile big time, I know I did!

These pineapple pink lemonade popsicles not only look really pretty but Id imagine they are also really delicious as well. unnamed-5-e1435602230374

Then again this super easy 2 ingredient peach sherbet also looks really good and probably pretty diet friendly!

I came across these Disney cross stitch round up at some point last week and fell in love and once again told myself that I need to learn to cross stitch asap!Disney cross stitch

Here I am, minus a body part or so

I have been totally mia lately, and I apologize. I had some issues with my gallbladder and scheduled my gallbladder removal surgery for last Tuesday, but at the time that I scheduled the surgery I was still feeling well enough to sit at my desk and write so I planned on writing enough to cover my time away from this amazing site. Before I knew it I was unable to sit at my desk those days leading up to my surgery, which is why this site has been sort of quiet recently. IMG_3271 The surgery itself sucked. My gallbladder was to be removed through a series of four holes in my stomach and by removing it this way it was supposed to limit the amount of pain that I felt. Well you tell that to the nurse who was in the recovery unit who refused to believe me that I was in so much pain. I only stayed in the hospital for just under 2 hours (I think) after my surgery, which meant that I had to actually move. It was brutal. The doctor spoke to my husband and apparently I had two really large gallstones that were causing the pain, while he was having that conversation with my husband he also told him that my recovery time would be short and that I have no restrictions. That would lead me to believe that life would be back to normal in a day or so.

Wrong. This is what pretty much all I saw for almost a week:

Yep, thats my couch. I made the couch my home for the next week because my bedroom is in the basement and the stairs were too hard to handle not to mention that my incisions were so sore I couldn’t take the chance of John bumping it in his sleep.

Luckily for me the kids were really sweet, and John helped so much that I was able recover as quickly as possible. Though, I would like to take a moment to call out my sweet middle son who slept on our other couch that he would push right next to the couch I was on so that he could hold my hand as we slept. With him being 13 it came as a complete shock but it was so nice knowing that he was there if I needed anything.

Now it is one week and one day after my surgery and I feel almost normal as long as I don’t do much and as long as I don’t touch these incisions. Honestly I miss riding my bike the very most, I can’t wait to get back on her and feel the wind in my face!

Oh, and don’t worry, things are semi normal now and that means you will be able to find all of the posts that you love here again!!

I absolutely love abandoned places, especially this set by Dainty Squid. If you like this type of thing too you should follow her because she posts a lot like these. IMG_6589-001

Im sure I have mentioned that despite everyone else in my family having a magical green thumb, somehow I managed to kill every plant I have owned. Which is probably why I love this cardboard cactus so much.

I have been really trying to feed the family much healthier and overall they have adapted to fresh fruits and veggies, with the exception of green beans. However these parmesan green beans look like something my bunch would gobble up!

If December would actually walk nicely on a leash I would totally make one of these for her. I have seen some of these on Etsy and going for a pretty penny at that!

I feel like I am forever wanting to change my work area, probably because I spend so much time in it. Which is probably why I love this metal memo board and its so great because it allows you to change up your work space often!

This round up of Summer art printables is really great!

This is a really great list of blog post idea for whenever writers block strikes again.

The worst part about renting is that I can’t paint the walls or do any pretty wall art like this. I can’t wait to own our own home again.Pink_Candy_Striped_Wall
