I’m so sorry about the lack of new posts around here. As I said in my last few posts I’m in the process of moving. I know I said that things would run rather smoothly during the move, but I sort of put the brakes on all of that. I really hate when my posts go live and I’m not here to respond to comments. I’m going to try really hard to get my two weekly posts up while responding to comments, but if I can’t I’ll try to at least get the one post up. I’ll also be catching up on your blogs. I know I’ve fallen behind on that too. I promise to catch up though!

I promise that there are big things coming! I have about a hundred items on my desk that I can’t wait to talk about. It sucks that by the time I get around to it it will no longer be new. But let’s face it, that’s never stopped me before. While I enjoy talking about shiny, new and exciting things, I’ve been known to talk about Holiday items well into Spring. Yeah, be on the lookout for that! But I’m a very thorough person and I like to take my time when testing out new items. I suppose I could always just slap some stuff up and call it a day, but that’s just not what my blog is all about. It’s always been about my own personal experiences with products I truly love. And I like that to shine through all of my posts. I hope you all understand.

I’m pretty excited about this move. The apartment we’re currently in was only supposed to be temporary. I guess we got a little too comfortable because that temporary stay lasted almost 3 years! But a lot has changed these past few months and we had to move closer to where my husband works. The area is really nice and I hear nothing but great things about the schools. I’m also excited to hear that there are lots of walkers in the area. Maybe I can finally get back on track and get those steps in. Last year was a very hard year for me and I wasn’t nearly as active and I should have been. Anyway, the house itself is just perfect! It’s not too big and not too small. It’s everything I was looking for in a home. Honestly, the only downside for me is the lack of a basement. While tornados are pretty rare they do happen. So I have slight anxiety about that. Otherwise the place is perfect for us! I got lots of good vibes walking through the place. Lots of positive energy which is just what we need. Be on the lookout for photos once we’re completely settled in.

Things should return to my regular schedule starting on Monday. Thank you for understanding! And thank you for continuing the check in on Midwest Glam! It really means a lot to me!

The featured photo is of the new handbag my husband got for me earlier this week. Isn’t it the cutest?

  1. Congrats on the new home girl! I don’t have a basement either and it does concern me. But then most houses in Florida don’t have them because they ed up flooding a lot. But we just always go get in the bathtub during storms. Can’t wait to hear more about your new place once you get settled in. XO

    • Yeah I’m told the tub is the place to go. Not that it would help much if we ever had the big one. I guess when it’s your time it’s your time lol. Thanks, Julie! <3

  2. Congrats on your house move – sounds like you have a lovely home – getting a good feeling about a space is important!

    Love your bag! xx

As much as we all enjoy your posts, taking a bit of time for yourself while you settle in is important. <3 I look forward to reading more about your new abode and all of the other things you have planned.
