Just Passing Through...and a Starbucks Giveaway!

Hello! I'm Casey...the writer behind this blog, who hasn't typed a single sentence here in almost a month. I'm definitely not apologizing for being absent because apparently, according to some invisible blog world rule book, it's frowned upon to do that (sorry, not sorry then?). However, I will tell you I've been off doing life and enjoying the crap out of it. That's usually how it goes, when you're busy and filled to the brim with good stuff around you...blogging leaps to the back burner. Things settle down and then you remember, "OH! I have this place I used to like to write in...maybe I should get back to that." Me, in a nutshell.

Long story short, here's my month (and a few days) in review:
-Spent 4th of July back in NC with family (seriously lovely).

-Stayed in NC for the following 3 weeks while D had another AF training in Ohio. Why? Because why the heck not? Lots of mommy and me time logged.

-Came back to FL for 4, maybe 5 days, celebrate 8 years of wedded bliss with my handsome stud muffin of a husband, and then jaunted off to NYC to spend a 8 days with my little sis. Felt incredible to do that whole unpack/repack thing. It had been a while!

-Walked basically 800 miles around Manhattan, Jersey, & Baltimore during my trip (ate a lot and didn't gain a single ounce, thank you!). I should have told you guys that I'm on Snapchat prior to this trip because my Snap game was on point that week. Been on this thing for almost a year and only ever snapped my family--lame, I know. You can find me at Caseadilla1016.

And now I'm back home and sad panda about it all being over.

I'll elaborate more on all the fun I got into later, but today (and this rest of this sure to be hellacious week) is devoted to slowly reducing the length of my never-ending to do list. I basically ignored the non-urgent stuff during my NYC trip, so now I'm heavy eye-rolling at crap I should've done. Story of my life. Anywho, I'm drinking all the coffee, embracing the carpal tunnel, and pretending I don't have piles of dirty laundry burning a hole in my floor today as I'm slapped back to the reality of a post-vacation Monday. Worst kind of Monday, innit?

To help YOU make it thought whatever kind of week you're bracing yourself for, here's a chance to win $45 worth of Green Tea Lattes or Birthday Cake Pops at Starbee's (my new annoying name for Starbucks, thanks Wendy!). Enter the Rafflecopter below and I'll have my fingers crossed for ya! Oh, and big thanks to Rebecca of Caravan Sonnet for hosting and the fab gals below for co-hosting! 

As for you guys, we'll talk later this week, ok? Adding you to my list. ;)
