Better Late Than Never

I've been MIA. I've been a terrible blogger in the sense that I have been reading but not commenting very often. I've been an awful supporter. I'm sorry! I can't even tell you why. I have been taking a break from all the infertility stuff, and it is doing wonders for my heart and mind. But doing so has also left me feeling disconnected and like I am ignoring the one thing I truly want. Apparently I have some feelings I still need to work through...

Nonetheless, things are well, and I am thankful the holidays are here! I love this time of year: the hustle and bustle, the lights, the music, the excitement and anticipation, buying gifts, celebrating and reconnecting! I love it all, despite the complete busy-ness that also makes some of us pull our hair out and overextend ourselves and our time!

I've been waiting on My Peah to send me some of her Halloween pictures since they showed my full costume, but she is having issues with her Internet. I told you I would post some Halloween pictures, so here are a few from the Big Bash. Even though they're over a month old, it's better late than never, right?

This is My Peah (my BFF) and me with my crazy red eye lashes that could also serve as an airplane landing strip. I just had to wear them, although with that grin on my face, it's hard to look like a true biker.

This is My Peah's brother, "T", and their sister. Her sister, "E," was actually my "lover" for the night.

And this is "E," and me again, showing off our matching tattoos.
You can kind of see my cool pleather pants in this shot.

*I have been informed that the word "cool" and "pleather" do not belong in the same sentence,
but they truly and sarcastically do for Halloween.

This is the end of the night (as if you can't tell). Just posting these pictures is cracking me up. It was so nice to let loose and enjoy myself with friends.

Another end-of-the-night picture. HA!

And since I'm smiling right now, I thought I'd post something to make you smile: A Giveaway!
Jill has a magnificent basket she is giving away in honor of her 100th post on The Averitt Family blog! Go offer her congratulations for her 100th post and enter her drawing. You will absolutely be amazed at the beautiful goody-stuffed basket she put together for one lucky winner! Congratulations, Jill! We are honored to have you as such a strong supporter in our community!

I've really missed ya and I knew something was up. Dont worry, I understand the need for some time off. Babes and I took a 3month break this year. We had the best sex going! No pressures, no looking at dates, no doctors poking my hoo ha, nothing. Sorry, TMI.

Praying for you, my friend.

Love the pics and love that Christmas quote. I wish Christmas went on year round. I wouldn't get sick of it. Really.

I'm so happy to see an update from you!! Great, great pictures. You look like a total bad ass - a really pretty one - but a bad ass at that. (;

Take all the time away you need. Of course you are missed, but your well-being is so much more important. I'm happy to hear your heart and mind are feeling some peace. Many hugs.
