Not a real post.

Sorry to disappoint you, those of you who are still actually with me, now that I only post like once in a blue moon. :) This is not a REAL post, not in the sense that there shall be actual writing, or pictures... or any of those things that make a blog interesting, really. However, I did so want to tell you about a few other new bloggers that have entered my little world. (The funny thing is Steph just posted about this actually, and you may want to check out her post, because it's way cuter as she was actually ambitious enough to do pictures with it!)

I already told you about my lovely friend Kourtni and her new blog.... and then, after she joined about a million other people did (see, Kourtni, trendsetter indeed!). One of the new girls just so happens to be her sis Ashlei, who has so cleverly named her blog My Dirty Laundry, and I'm lovin' it. I might also add that Ashlei does my brows for me, and she's FABULOUS, so if any of you locals are looking for a good brow wax or facial, she's your girl. There are so many fun and funny things about Ashlei to love, but my favorite is seeing how she's grown and matured into such a beautiful young woman in so many ways. I used to give her piano lessons when she was just a skinny little kid, my "little chica"-- that seems so long ago now. Anyway, I'm glad she's here in blog-land. :)

You all know my darling cousin Stephanie. And I'm sure most of you know about her husband Cale. But, did you know that he started a blog of his own? Cale (NOT Kale) is always an interesting and entertaining dude, who certainly brings a unique element to our family gatherings. (I mean that in a very good way, don't worry!) He keeps us laughing, and I am interested to see what he will blog about.

I've also added a link for my friend Susan. I haven't seen her in years, probably, but every once in a while we end up running into each other, and it's always so good to catch up with her. Now, I'm so glad to be able to keep up with her on a regular basis through her blog, instead of waiting for that chance happening at the mall or Target! :) I met her when she used to work with my husband at a credit union, and I spent many of my visits to see Jeremy standing at the reception desk chatting it up with Susan. Glad to see you on here, girlie!

Another friend of mine, Cheri, has begun her own blog too. I love reading about her life, since she also has two adorable girls (one is even named Emma!), and she lives on a farm and gets to garden and do lots of things that the Midwest girl in me secretly has a hankering for. (I think the very fact that I said "hankering" may indicate something...) Welcome, Cheri!

Last, but certainly not least, I am quite pleased and excited to tell you that my very own two well-beloved and sweet sisters have started blogs! YAY!! Jerusha can be found over at Short but Sweet, and Lydia over at Sweet Nothings. I am so happy to have one more way in which to keep in touch with my girls as we miss each other desperately (yes, desperately) across the miles. I could hang out with these girls every day and never get enough of our fun times and talks... I love my sisters very very much, and I'm sure you will too once you get to know them! How could you not... they ARE related to me, after all! (teehee, just kidding, pardon my moment of conceit)
Now, if only my other sister-bestie Jessica would start blogging, my little world would be complete!

I think that's it. If I missed anyone, please tell me, and I will make amends immediately. *Edit: Lisa's wonderful sister-in-law Ruth just told me of her new blog. I'm excited to welcome her too, and I know what she writes will be worth reading. She's a very intelligent thinker and writer, as well as a sweet and fun gal. Yay, Ruth! You can check her out here at Love.Learn.Live

My hopes for blogging, really blogging, are high this week. Ah, Monday's optimism! But I've decided not to make rash statements anymore. No more shall I promise you posts about birthday parties and belly shots, only to fail in posting anything at all. It's cruel, really.

All I have to say is, I cannot wait until the first trimester, and all of its energy-zapping hormones, is over. :)

Oh, honey don't feel bad. I'm not even in the 1st trimester anymore and I actually went to bed at 8:45 last night. ME!!! lol.. Miss Night Owl herself. And that's sayin' something.
Anyway, wow all the new blogs! Fun fun fun!

*CPA* Su said...

Thanks for the shout out Talia! =) I do miss those days of chatting with you and Miss Jessica at the front desk! And I agree, Jessica needs to jump right on the band-wagon...ASAP!!

Megan said...

I love that you honor each friend and sister who jumps on the bandwagon. My guess is that Jessica will be here in no time! = ) Oh...I am SO relating to you on the lack of blogging. Not that you're doing this, but I'm overthinking EVERYthing these days- which makes it impossible to think of one thing to blog about. And then the energy to do it...yeah that's a totally different story. LOL

Ryan, Angela and Peyton said...

Steph Corwin said...

Great minds, my Talia :) Though yours was much more in depth than mine. We complement each other.

Ruth said...

You are such a great supporter and cheerleader, Talia! Thanks for all of the kind words. You are pretty thoughtful and intelligent yourself, you know. =)

I hope you get some energy back soon!
