Hey! I’ve been seeing a lot of monthly roundups from other bloggers (for like, years now…), so I decided to be [fashionably] late to the party and recap The Gathered Home’s September.
In the unduly and ungodly hot month of September…
I was in an article in the LA Times – Twitter IPO Hurdle!!!!! (Nope, not excited at all…)
Lifestyle blogger photo: “Ooh, I’m so calm and collected and famous and totally not holding my phone with awkward-looking-bony-fingers at all”:
Real life photo, which I’m pretty sure is just too embarrassing to post, but I will anyways because I am honest like that:
Yep, definitely too embarrassing…
Also, one million thanks to the sweet author who put me at ease during the phone interview (I have a near-phobia of speaking on the phone) and left out any mention of my strong Texas accent that ONLY manifests itself when I’m nervous – I call it “obnoxious hick”, if you need a mental image. I’m also eternally thankful that she didn’t directly quote me on either “smack dab in the middle of” or when I used a strange-old-man-voice to say: I feel like an old fogey. Like, ‘What is all this new social media crap?’ (Stay classy, Brynne.)
It was fun. And it was like skittles. (Everyone says “like crack” but I personally don’t have any experience with whether crack is like having your name in print in the LA Times or not, so I’ve substituted something else that I do have experience with, and that experience is that I can’t eat just one or even ten or twenty skittles… It’s the whole darn bag. Every time. What I’m getting at with this is that I want to eat some skittles now. And that seeing my name in print was delightful.)
So that was my September. Good Lord, it was busy. Crazy, but fun. Exhausting, but rewarding. I’m ready for some crisp fall weather, shiny new projects, the chance to wear boots and a sweater, and my first pumpkin-spiced-something of the season… Onward, October!
