I'M NOT DEAD YET

***UPDATE!! I JUST GOT MY FIRST WELCOME BACK ANON. (OF COURSE) HATE MESSAGE TODAY!! GOD IT'S GREAT TO BE BACK AND BE LOVED BY SO MANY, LOL! LIKE IT OR NOT, I WILL BE BACK, CAN'T WAIT :)



I know I have been MIA for a looooong time now and I'm sorry. I have just had a lot of stuff going on in my life right now and doing nails just hasn't been in the mix. I will be back, but I'm sorry I can't give you all an exact date, I'm hoping by the end of the month things will be back to normal around here. Wanna hear a quick list of all that has been eating away at my time??? Ok, well here goes:
car trouble (without a car for almost a week!!)
Computer down at work
School starting
Little starting football
Little's Birthday (Today!! He is 8!!!)
My Mom's birthday (on the 9th, a milestone #60!!!)
Baking about 10 dozen cookies for my Grandma

is that enough to grant me a reprieve?? God I hope so!

Anyway, I miss you guys but I promise I WILL BE BACK :) In the mean time, here are a few family pics.


Little at Baconfest in Enid - plates of bacon and bottles of beer, does it get any better??? Top that with a free pig nose and it's simply Heaven!


Nanners tricking you all into thinking he isn't a hellion on wheels!!


Little's first day of second grade.


The double cross peace sign must be Little's signature pose this year!


See what lengths Dinks will go to for a morsel of food? I love that girl!!

Wondered what was happening with you. I know Little had school to begin. Your really having so many things going on. Take your time to relax and then things will get going. Can't wait to see a picture of Little in his football uniform. I don't know how you have this blog plus all the work you do with having a family. I'll always be checking back with you. Mwah!

Brooke said...

ANON #2 - Well apparently YOU missed me enough to still keep checking my blog AND not only that but to take time out of your busy miserable life to leave me a message - so THANK YOU!!

Tempera said...

Glad to hear from you was wondering how Nanners was doing. He looks peaceful here lol. Happy Birthday to Little. Sorry to hear about your car. And I have to say I missed you. When I found your site I fell in love. Nails, Chi's family all the things I relate to. And to top it heh my daughter starts student teaching today for second graders. A busy life is a good life.

Scandalous said...

BWAHAHAHAHA Brooke your comment to anon#2 is priceless. ahahahahaha God I've missed you can't wait til you're back!

Brooke said...

THANKS GIRLS FOR THE WELCOME BACK! I MISSED YOU ALL SOOOO MUCH :)

Nicole said...

Hey Brooke! I was just thinking about you the other day wondering how you were getting along, and for ANON - oh how brave! Apparently we missed her even if you didn't.
*hugs* I can't wait to hear more about what you've been up to and how Little's birthday went!

Good to see you back =D

Nikki Warner said...

Heah..good to see you and great family pics!

VAgirl said...

I know this is going to sound so petty for me too write but I'm in a mood so I'm going to! I'll never understand why someone feels the need to try to spread their ugliness! To the person who wrote the nasty comment- WTF??? You don't have to come here and if you feel that way then don't and leave it to those of us that happen to love this blog.

Brooke - glad to see you back :) Yours is actually the first nail blog I check each time when I log on. I happen to love your setup and how it shows the pics on the right side of so many others. That way I can catch up on yours plus see what else new has been posted all at once. I was beginning to wonder what happened to you but just figured life gets in the way sometimes.

VAgirl said...

sorry about the poor speling on "too write" :(

Nixxy said...

Don't worry Brooke - we'll all be waiting when you get back! :) Sometimes a little blog hiatus is very refreshing.

Helen (Nice Things) said...

Happy Birthday Little!

And Brooke - we all missed you. Anon can take a long walk off a short cliff xx

Stiletto said...

Happy Birthday to Little and Happy Belated Birthday to Mama!!!

We obviously miss you, but we will continue to wait while things hopefully quiet down for ya!

Theres a great quote I heard awhile back and i think it's perfect here...

"Those that matter don't mind, and those that mind don't matter!!!"

Skulda said...

WELCOME BACK!!!
Lulz at anon #2.
Maybe one day I'll get my own hate messages. LMFAO.

So glad to hear you're ok out there and will be back. Don't forget to take care of yourself while doing all you're doing for others. Little is adorable. And of course Banana and Dinky are precious. Glad Bananas was ok after the vet visit.

PysiaPatrysia said...

ohh :) welcome back

R3Beauty said...

Well I don't care what Anon #2 says, I miss you! So hopefully life slows down a bit for you. Sending good vibes your way so the car issues get worked out and the um do you really want good vibes for that work PC?I mean that kind of sounds like a welcome vacation for me! HA! Happy B-day to the little man! They sure do grow up fast!

Maggiemeister said...

How typical the rude one was, not even leaving their name. How stupid and mean.

I have been looking in on your blog for some time now and enjoy it a whole lot. I also use it as a jumping off spot because you have other interesting bloggers listed that I can visit.

Keep on Keeping On!

Crystaliciousss said...

oh banana is soooo cute, so cool when you can tug them in like little babies heehee:) Sometimes ulan is allowed to sleep in bed when the papa is on a business trip and he is my second husband, lying with his head on the other pillow watching me and falling asleep peacefully :)

Welcome "almost" back!! ;-)

SuperGlam said...

I've been missing your designs. Hope you are well. Come back soon!

Arrianne said...

So true what you responded to Anon 2 with. It takes balls to post hate mail under an anonymous name. Take it as a compliment, only the good ones get hate mail, haha!

Brooke said...

Miss you, darling!! I totally understand - it is REALLY HARD to keep up with a blog. We adore you!!!

Lauren E said...

Missing your posts but like I said before, family first! Take care!

Kimberly said...

Brooke, I went looking for you on Twitter too. Yes, I miss you! I will be, along with so many others who ADORE you, waiting for your return.

Don't you just hate nasty anonymous people? They want to sucker punch you but don't have the courage to say who they are.

Looking forward to seeing you back. <3
