Not Me Monday With a GIVEAWAY!


I know, I know... it's been 17 days since I have made a post. I AM SORRY! It has been more than just a little bit crazy around here the past couple of weeks. There are many major major major changes happening in our lives right now, and I am not even going to attempt to try to explain them in a "Not Me" style post. That would just be too confusing! So stay tuned for a post later on today that will explain all the reasons for my bloggy absence.

Meanwhile... I'm excited to join MckMama for another week of Not Me Monday! By now, you know how this little game works, and I hope that you will join us in this glorious form of free therapy!

Speaking of therapy, I am doing pretty well with the final phase of stopping all of my anti-depression and anti-anxiety meds. I went through two days of either severe withdrawals or I possibly had some kind of weird and painful stomach virus. Or maybe I had a two day flu. I'm not 100% sure what it was, but I really think it was from stopping the meds! Regardless, I did NOT complain to my husband that I felt like my brain was buzzing with electricity during those two most awful days, as well as for a few days after that. I also did NOT hear my husband telling someone that he felt like he was riding the "Crazy Tiffany Roller Coaster" during that first week. Geez... I just thought that I was a little bit edgy!

I am NOT seriously thinking about registering for a 10K run at the end of September. Considering that I have only run two times in the past two weeks, and considering that both of those runs ADDED TOGETHER still don't equal to 10K, this may be a slightly crazy idea.

I have NOT been trying to decide what color to paint the walls of my living room for over a week now. I love the color that it is currently, but it is really dark. I decided that the room needed to be brighter, so I've been searching for the perfect paint color. The problem... nothing compares to the color that it already was. So, I finally decided to just paint it half a shade lighter than what it originally was, mainly because I need to clean up the giant mess that I made in my color choosing process.
And finally, I am NOT super excited to host my very first giveaway! Currently, I have 82 followers (I LOVE Y'ALL!) and my hit count is at 9,752. Whichever event occurs first, either 100 followers or 10,000 hits, that lucky person will receive what I consider to be a FABULOUSLY AWESOME prize! You can check my right sidebar to see where all of the counts currently stand, and if you are the 100th follower or 10,000th hit, please send me picture proof and you will be my lucky winner!

And, just because I want to make it even more interesting for all of you (and to give those of you who are already followers an extra chance) I will be giving away a SECOND prize winner at random to anyone who comments on this post! You can even receive bonus opportunities to win by commenting to let me know that:
  1. You are a follower of this blog.
  2. You are following me on Twitter. (just ask... I'll confirm for you to follow)
  3. You have posted my button on your blog.
  4. You write a post or a link about this giveaway.
  5. You just want to tell me how wonderful and awesome you think I am.
So there you have it. My entrance back into bloggy-land, a "Not Me" post, a give away, and a promise for another post to come later today... all wrapped up into one little post right here just for you.

Happy Monday everyone!

I am NOT commenting on this, or becoming a follower (ok, I am so embarrassed that I am not already. Totally thought I was!) until it gets closer to 100, or 10000, k?

Hey missed you!

I was just thinking the other day that you hadn't blogged or Twittered much recently and I hoped everything was okay and now you are back!

I love the paint wall - that is hilarious and seriously would never fly with my husband. He would be livid if I did that. haha.

Okay, so I already follow you on here and on twitter. your button has been on my blog for a long time now. and i basically think you are totally awesome (and not just because you let me email you with wedding questions or just to vent :)

I'm thinking about registering for a 5k run at the end of september too, even though I haven't run in a while. Maybe the same one? I ran it last year after training for a month and never ran again after that.
