Time Out!

I am taking a brief, but much-needed, blogging break. My house looks like a remnant camp of Occupy America, I’ve not been to the salon in weeks so my eyebrows look like Abe Vigoda and Andy Rooney had a baby, my husband now refers to me as “What’s-Her-Name Who Used to Take Care of Me“….it’s all just a big ol’ hot mess around here!!! And just keeping it real, folks, I need some plain old R&R! 🙂

I am so grateful for each and every visit, and I hope you’ll hang in there with me. I’ll be back next week (or possibly the next…depends on if my stylist has to send out for more wax to tackle these caterpillar eyebrows!) stronger than ever. Meanwhile, especially if you’re a first-time visitor, please take a look around and see if there’s anything you like!

Have a glorious week (or two!), and I’ll see you on the flip side! 🙂

  1. Take care of you. I hope your stylist doesn’t have to use a machete first to get to those brows. Chillax and have one or two of those cute little drinks with an umbrella in it. We’ll be here when you get back.


  2. I understand completely, and you must be exhausted because you go above and beyond on your lovely, memorable tablescapes!!! Take all the time you need to “catch up” on home and feminine maintenance….giggle…..we will all be here waiting for your return to keep us informed on “beautiful” tablescapes.


  3. I’m a “stacker/pile maker” myself. Every once in a while, I have to deconstruct all the piles that I’ve created. Always think that I’ll embrace the “handle everything once” philosophy, but so far…not so much. Have a good blog break. Cherry Kay


  4. Oh my goodness Alycia. You poor thing. You deserve a much needed rest! We can’t you having these dreadful caterpillar eyebrows, can we?
    Take your time, We will be here when you are ready to go at it again.


  5. You have a wonderful time getting some well deserved R&R getting yourself all dolled up and spending time with your sweet hubby!……Have fun Alycia!! We certainly do not want you looking like Abe’s daughter!!….xoxo’s…will miss ya..!!


  6. Alycia, you are hilarious. I was in the same dire straights, and have been visiting and such but not posting. I will very soon. But I needed the haircut, color, eyebrow waxing, etc etc etc. And housework which never ends and I live alone!!!!! What is up with that?! Take care, get stuff done, and we’ll be waiting right here for when you get back. xo


  7. You need a CRUISE….. and a MASSAGE….and a MANI/PEDI….. and some YOU TIME. Take a deep breath and feel the freedom and unstack!!!!! It’s been wickedly hot and now, it’s time to CHILL….. “SEE” you on the FLIPSIDE…..


  8. Enjoy your time off…I didn’t touch a computer while on vacation…no blog…no facebook…nothing, and it was amazing! Get some rest and enjoy a little pampering! We’ll see you when you get back.


  9. LOL! You are too funny Alycia! Hey, I am redoing the shop and I will post some picks when I get it done. Looks like you need to go to Hawaii or somethin. If you need a tour guide, I’m your woman! 🙂


  10. Alycia, take your time, enjoy your break, there is plenty on the site for all of us to swoon over. I commend you for doing what you do through all the heat that’s been smothering KC. My brother (Bishop Hogan alumni) is sleeping in the basement to keep cool because the air conditioner is on but not very effective.


  11. You are crazy but I understand, looked at my house and I’ve decided to go to the movies today, it will be here when I return. Maybe the CLEAN house fairy will visit.


  12. I understand completely! I took a week off and the blogging world didn’t end, like I thought it might! But, two weeks tops, my dear, or you will find me on your doorstep with a hazmat suit and a bucket of cleaning supplies! Sorry, I don’t do windows or eyebrows. 🙂


  13. Hi Alycia!

    Take all the time you want/need to get yourself refreshed. I so enjoy reading your blog and reading the comments you leave all over blogland 🙂

  14. I totally get every word! I have been so busy lately that I have barely have the time to sit still for a pair of minutes and write, let alone read. When that happens, the creativity goes off in that same hand basket as the house and appearance. Yup.

    Enjoy your break as you reintroduce yourself to the salon and vacuum.

    Are you still trying to participate in July’s austerity measures? I’m positive that an eyebrow wax is considered a “need”. So positive in fact that I had one yesterday afternoon.

    Enjoy! Refresh! Reinvigorate!
