Thoughts on Thursday and Confessions


Thursday, June 1, 2017

Ahh, what is it with this week? I just can't seem to get my crap together to get a post done in time. I realized quite late last night that I hadn't written my confessions/thoughts on Thursday post and I had to scramble to get one going.

Anyways, let's get onto it.

CONFESSIONS...

- While I am sad that yesterday was my girls' last day at this daycare, I am soooo happy. Now I won't pick them up from school and be covered in dirt. The daycare's playground area is in the dirt. Now I know many places have this, but their new daycare has astro turf, that rubber ground cover and cement.

- I am really going to miss a lot of the girls' teachers. I loved catching up with them in the mornings and getting to know them all. The girls have been going there for 2 years and a month, so they become family to you.

- I have been working so hard on my IG game, and I am not seeing the results I would like. I have been posting more regularly (except Memorial Day weekend), interacting with new people, being more mindful of my hashtags and using better descriptions and my numbers still haven't moved much. Ugh. Not a fun game.

- I am receiving something pretty awesome because of this blog, but it requires a signature and someone to be present to receive it. I kept getting FedEx notifications, but was never home, so I had it sent to a FedEx location to pick it up. Well it wasn't there when I went to get it. I hope it is there tonight. I just want my thing please.

THOUGHTS...

- I had my first fill on my lashes last night and I am still loving them so much. I don't feel as naked face wise when I don't have any make up and they just look really good. Though I found out from my cousin this weekend that she pays a whole lot less for her fills than I do. Might have to jump ship on my friend and go to the girl where my cousin goes. #savemoneywhenyouhavekids

- I forgot about What's Up Wednesday even though I had a post already started for it. Oops.

- Remember there will be no confessions/thoughts on Thursday post next week as it is our monthly Girl Chat link up and the topic is, "What are your Summer staple items?"

- How is it June already? June means beach time, a mini vacation, lots of sunshine and outdoors time. Bring it on.

- Has anyone else had a drop in blog views? I am not sure if it is the summer and lack of being online or my blog is falling off the face of the planet, but the last week has been way lower numbers than usual. Just me?

  1. I definitely think blog views are down due to summer / end of school. Everyone seems super busy with any end of school events, and enjoying the beginning of summer!

  4. Ok, so I'm like so out of it with blogging and can't get my sh*t together either!! The fact that I posted about summer staples yesterday when that's our girl chat topic, OMG!!! What a moron. Well, at least it's done LOL!!

    I'm so excited for the girls and their new daycare! but I know it must have been sad to say goodbye to everyone! And yes, totally have seen page view drops this past couple weeks but I remember that happening last year at the same time!

  5. The IG game is just ridiculous! I hate the follow unfollow and I refuse to play. Ha ha! Can't wait to hear what you are waiting on.

  6. I've had blog numbers drop, but I think that is also partly due to my hiatus from the blogging world. However, Lindsay told me that (and I cannot recall where she received this information from) that most bloggers see a decrease during the summer. You are not alone!

  8. And just like that 6 months of this year are almost over. Mind Blown! My stats have dropped but I have been a little MIA lately. Oops. IG....Im picky with who I let follow me so I have nothing. I remember when I took #babybigtruck from the day care she first started at and moved her to where she is now it was like I went through a break up. Not fun I feel ya!

  9. How are we in June in already and half way through the year?! Yes to all the summer fun!! I'm having a hard time keeping up with blogging lately and know I'm guilty of one of those ones who hasn't been as active. I do think the summer has a lot to do with a decrease in traffic.

  10. This year is flying! I had a similar situation with fed ex this week, I was getting wine and it kept getting delayed and when I went it wasn't there too, so frustrating! There's always a lull in summer I feel, people take vacay and enjoy the freedom feeling. Have a great day!

  12. I just texted my bestie this morning and was all...June????? Really???? It is insane how fast time is going!!! I am glad to hear that the teachers and stuff at daycare are sort of like family to you. I just registered my daughter for one yesterday and when I was leaving, the director gave me a hug and I was thinking...I hope this is a sign that this was the right decision! I am following you on Instagram now, so you number moved up at least one :)

  14. This has been the story of my life for a few weeks now! There has been zero time for blogging. And when I have a few moments to blog I get completely overwhelmed with how much I need to blog about. Ha. Vicious cycle! IG is so finicky. Their algorithms make things difficult. I hope you see results soon. Can’t wait to hear what you’re getting!!

  15. My blog numbers ALWAYS goes down during summer. Once school is out, people just stay away from computers it seems.
    I still dont know how people rack up the IG followers - legit anyways - I know some do those programs that gets you followers but I'm not all about that.
