Where the BLEEP have I been?

Hello, friends.

I've missed you...
I've missed my DIY projects...
I've missed trying new recipes...
I've missed crafting...
and, I've missed blogging.

First of all, I want to thank all of you for sticking around in my absence. And, because you have, I feel that I owe you an explanation. Shortly after I started this blog I had some major life changes. Wonderful and great life changes, but changes nonetheless.

As some of you know 'Team Ibrahim' struggled for many years with becoming more than just a two-person team. We finally found success with our 4th IVF procedure and had our beautiful daughter, Elia. We were told we had to wait a whole year to try again because of the strain that the treatments and pregnancy can put on the body. We listened and we waited a year...and a week. We did another IVF transfer on July 17th and found out 2 weeks later that we were expecting again.

Just days before receiving our exciting news I was offered an amazing opportunity to do contract work for a local company. The owner is someone that I have looked up to for years and is considered a trailblazer in the social media industry. I jumped at the opportunity for both personal growth and a chance to pay down the debt we had accrued starting our family.

So, to recap: a new blog, a new job, a one year old, and a new pregnancy...all in the span of a couple of weeks. Overwhelmed does not even begin to describe how I was feeling. Extremely grateful but extremely overwhelmed.

Since I'm now well into my 2nd trimester and feeling much better and finally getting some sort of routine down with my job and family I'm planning on working my way back to my blog. Because, again, I really, really, really miss it.

So, that's it. Thank you for sticking around and I hope to be posting some fun projects soon! In the meantime, if you have a blog--I'm probably already following it, but if not, I'd love to! Leave your url in the comments and I'll stalk you check it out!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Yay and Good Lord all that the same time! Yay because you're back and I missed you!!! Good Lord because you have a LOT on your plate momma! (But I already knew that LOL) Take it easy and I can't wait to check out some of your new projects.


    1. Thank you, my blogging BFF! So happy to have your support (it really does mean the world to me)! :)

  2. Congratulations on all the good changes... and for knowing when you need to cut something out temporarily to keep your sanity! Remember, I live in Olathe, so maybe one day we'll run into each other at Hobby Lobby or something. haha

    1. Thank you! I love following your blog/posts! It's sorta crazy that we live so close and have never met...or have we. Was it you that I wrestled to the floor at the Hob Lob for the last (fill in the blank)?

  3. WooHoo! Congrats on all the fantastic changes! I'm so happy for you! Welcome back :)


    1. Thank you! I'm happy to be back and can't wait to follow you and your adorable family! :)

  4. Wonderful news! Be kind to yourself and don't take on too much.

    1. Thank you for your sweet comment. :) It's MUCH appreciated!
