Why I blog- Part 2

Here is why I blog::
1.I've always dreamed of being a mommy blogger
2. I wanted to be able to stay at home and make a little money on the side
3. I wanted to share my thoughts and become a part of something bigger.
4. I wanted to use this as my journal
5. I enjoy reading other posts and it inspires me to blog.

When I first started my little blog. I thought that everyone would be reading it. But then I looked at the blogs that I was reading and realized that they were all 'mommy blogs' or 'diy blogs'. So until I had Little blog always seemed boring. And I really didn't have anything to blog about. 

Sometimes blogging about my personal life seems to be hard for me. I've gone through a lot but when people know you have a blog, I don't want to write about things that may be about someone else...does that make sense?
I don't want to become a facebook status...impersonal and passive aggressive. You know the ones that say 'I wish I had true friends.' 'Today was so horrible...'
I wanted my blog to be a reflection of me. Honest and bold. But its hard to do that without offending involved parties. 
There have been times where I have lost friends, said unkind words, and had to say no to friendships. I don't want to write about that yet...maybe its too soon. One day.

I loved the idea of being able to make money at home while raising my babies. That is still a dream of mine. However, I have found the joys of being a part of a community to be much more rewarding. I like that I can relate with others on this 'blogosphere'. I've made a few friendships...but I know that I need to put more effort into continuing those relationships. The past month I had a hard time keeping up with all this media and blog stuff. Balance is what I really need to learn. I'm getting there. 
Then I read a blog post today @ Blogguidebook and there it was...a simple answer.
Why do I blog? I blog for coffee. 
The concept is totally what I've been trying to put my words into. 
Find a little hobby that fuels my love for community. That feeling of coziness and love. Relaxing among femininity.
A cup of coffee!
So here I go, extending myself and asking for you to refill my cup, but only if you want to :).

I hope you have enjoyed reading...and maybe I can refill your cup!


Coffee Talk

Howdy, ya'll...
It has been a busy week here at Hurley Love. Still trying to get our home into place. I've been trying to wake up a bit earlir to get back into blogging. I feel like August came and went and I regret not being more involved in the blogospere. Please forgive me..Thanks :)

I was doing #BeachWeek with Tone it Up, but Wednesday's workout kinda destroyed me. I was supposed to do stairs, but I did step ups (like stepping onto a ledge then back down). Well I did it for 4 mins and 5 intervals. That day I also walked/ran 9 miles!! Ooopsie!!
Here is the workout that I adjusted:

I also have lacked big time on responding on She Reads Truth!! I gotta get on that. I have loved and enjoyed reading Proverbs so much!!

However I have gotten to make Little Miss laugh a lot this week!! Always brings a smile to my face!

Werll I'm hoping to get out and do a mile jog today! Check my twitter to see if I did :)

Have a great Labor day weekend!!

Got my hair did

I recently got my hair done. I saw that Courtney over at Baxtron Life did a blog post about her hair. I loved that idea. So I copied her (post...not hair. She is so cute and can pull off any hair cut.) My sister in law is pretty stinkin' amazing at hair! I don't know how many hair stylists would let their clients hold their baby throughout the whole thinkg!!
This was our inspration:
 Here we go

 Well...what do you think!
Looking back at all these photos its funny to see Lilly's expressions.
