Another Blogging Break?

As you can all see by the lackluster content of late on Lindsay Weighs In, I’m just not feeling blogging right now.

I don’t really get excited to write posts anymore, and most of the time I feel like I’m grasping for content. I’m searching my brain for a post that means something. Not just a survey, or a weekend recap or a list of links. I like all of those posts (and I think you all do too?) but it’s not what I want this blog to be about all the time. I want to talk about things that matter.

Maybe I’m being to hard on myself. Maybe this blog of mine has just run its course. Maybe I just need to take a step back again for awhile and see if this is still something I want to do.

Almost three years of my life is documented on the Internet. Sometimes that freaks me out, but most times it’s fun to know that I can look back and see exactly what I was feeling 2 years ago. That girl who wasn’t sure of herself isn’t really who I am anymore, though I appreciate the past that brought me to my present.

I suppose I’m not sure what I want to do in the long-term, but I do know that this is a hobby and I’m not going to continue to do it if it’s not making me happy anymore. There’s no point in making myself stressed for something that’s supposed to be fun. I don’t make money from this blog (I never really intended to), so I can just walk away from it if I decide to with no real repercussions.

I’m so appreciate of this blogging community and all of the friends and opportunities I’ve had a result of Lindsay Weighs In, but I know I can still be a part of this community even if I’m not blogging anymore.

Right now, I’m not sure if I’m going to stop blogging, but for now, I’m taking a break. Thanks for understanding!

Big hugs & love,

Hugs and love

J and I graduation

F – Favorite Song: All time favorite song would be anything James Taylor, I grew up listening to his music and it just reminds me of really happy times. My current favorite song is “Something in the Water” by Carrie Underwood.

N – Number of Siblings: Two. Love you crazies!

Siblings

O – One Wish: Edited to add: I am not pregnant! WHOOPS! Thank you for pointing this out, Rachel! The blogger I filled out the survey from is. Oh goodness! A happy and healthy baby (Previous answer!) I am wishing and praying for instead the strength to reach my weight loss goals once and for all. And then I can be healthy enough to have babies one day. BUT NOT TODAY! Oh my, I’m so embarrassed!

U – Underwear Color: Gray and purple.

V – Vacation Destination: Well, I grew up going to the beach every summer so that is 100% my happy place and I love it there. There’s lots of other places I’d love to go, though. Fun fact! Both J & I’s parents had their honeymoon in Maine, so we’d both really like to go there together. And, I’d love to go somewhere tropical. AND, I’d love to visit lots of other countries. Sign me up for everywhere, please.

Sunset

W – Worst Habit: Oh goodness. Hmm… I worry too much.

X – X-Rays You’ve Had: A decent amount! I played soccer for 14 years so I had my fair share of injuries and x-rays though I’ve never broken a bone. Well, I’m still convinced that I broke my arm in middle school during soccer practice, though since it was such a hairline fracture if anything they didn’t cast it. I still played that season with my splint wrapped up. God love my Mama. She’s a champ.

I’ve also had lots of x-rays over the years at the orthodontist and dentist. I had my most recent one at the orthodontist this week! I’m thinking of getting Invisalign because my teeth have shifted (not wearing your retainers for years will do that to a girl!) and they really bother me. And, I suspect that they will x-ray my thumb next week at the Orthopedic doctor to make sure nothing is broken before they inject me with a cortisone shot to help my tendonitis. I swear, I’m a mess!

Y – Your Favorite Food: Cupcakes. Duh.

birthday cake

Z – Zodiac Sign: Taurus!

Think out loud and answer some of these questions! This has been floating around the blogsophere for some time, so I had to jump on it. I can’t wait to hear your answers!

Weekend Happenings [#10]

Hi!! I swear sometime soon I will write something of substance on Lindsay Weighs In, but today is not that day 😉 Let’s recap the [marvelous] weekend!

weekend happenings

I actually really like writing these posts, though I’m not totally sure if YOU all like them. C’est la vie. (JK, tell me in the comments.) :)

Friday was low-key, I unpacked a bit (ahh, moving!) and Rosie was at Camp Linny and JoeJoe (bahah, me so funny.) while my Mama was away for work. She had fun! And so did we, but Rosie’s time at camp showed that we are SO not ready for a dog, no matter how much I want one.

Rosie

THAT FACE. I can’t handle her cuteness. She is such a funny little thing!

On Saturday, I worked an event for work most of the day and then headed out dinner with my love and some wonderful other people! I had the most delicious food and the atmosphere and service were excellent! (Manga Qui is the name of the restaurant if you’re a local reader!) I had a glass of Prosecco with my meal and oh my goodness, that may be my new favorite. The company of course was fantastic as well :) I continue to be so happy and feel so blessed about the people J has brought into my life. We’re both so lucky to have such wonderful friends and family! /sappyparagraph. Anyway, we definitely be back!

Sunday we attended a graduation, going away and birthday party at the Hershey Vineyard. It was hot as heck out, but it was so much fun! I definitely want to go back for a wine tasting soon! I also attempted some unpacking, but how can you really unpack when this cutie wants to take a nap on ya?

Rosie 2

Seriously. Priorities, y’all. 😉

The unpacking can wait until tonight, though I am determined to get it done tonight before I lose my darn mind. I like order and knowing where things are – haha! Here’s my hope for you all this beautiful Monday:

Monday be short
