Oh yeah, I have a blog….  
It’s been over a month now since I’ve wandered over to LJ. Oops. My apologies for completely failing to blog last month (and keep up with all of your blogs – I’ll do my best to catch up soon). It’s not that I didn’t want to blog, in fact I had several ideas for blog posts, I just never acted on them. Really, it feels like September 1st happened and then suddenly it was September 30th just like that. I didn’t realize how quickly time was getting away from me until it was gone.

So since I’ve failed to do all my usual postings, I’m just going to do a quick summary of September all in one post. I promise to make it as short as possible.

In September I….

  • Threw my sister a Baby Sprinkle for my 2nd nephew Abel (who’s scheduled to arrive on Halloween!). It was extremely overwhelming in the food prep department (12 hours the day before, 9 hours the day of), but overall a beautiful event. You can see pictures HERE.

  • Got THESE awesome books in the mail. YAY for the return of pre-orders!

  • Read 4 books. I really had hoped to read more, but since one of these 4 books was the size of 3 books there just wasn’t time for anymore.

September Reads

Boys that Bite (Blood Coven, Book 1) by Mari Mancusi
Fathomless (Fairytale Retellings, Book 3) by Jackson Pearce
The Dream Thieves (Raven Cycle, Book 2) by Maggie Stiefvater
Styxx (Dark-Hunter, Book 23) by Sherrilyn Kenyon

  • Wrote 770 words. This is shameful, I know. I’m trying a new tactic this month to get back in my 5K game. Fingers crossed it helps.

  • Listened to a lot of random indie tracks. My favorite Music Friday tracks can be heard HERE, HERE, and HERE.

  • Started training for the Color Run. Mom and I get up at 5am to run before work. It felt insane at first, but I rather like it now – even with my forever aching muscles.

  • Went to the Milburn Orchards with Gideon like last year. If you’d like, you can see pictures HERE.

  • Saw the end of two of my favorite TV shows, Dexter and Breaking Bad. I wrote a reflective piece about show endings HERE.

So that’s basically it. Maybe you didn’t really miss much by my lack of blogging. How was your September?

It's easy to fall behind on blogging sometimes. It's more than understandable for you, since you've been so busy! (Like, all that food prep you did. OMG. I would've died.) Because of that busy-ness, you shouldn't be ashamed at all by those 770 words. All it does is prove you actually put in the effort to write when you easily could've just shrugged it off all month! Regardless, I hope the new tactic you plan to try works, since I know how much you want to amp up your monthly word count. Also, I think it's impressive how you read four books this past September, and not just because one of them's a mammoth. That accomplishment averages to one book a week! I wish my average was that good, but it's hard for me to get into novels lately...
