Shady’s Holly’s back, tell a friend…
…and SOOO happy to be back! I missed y’all :).
First and foremost, thank you to Janetha, Alison, Matt, Angharad and Katharina for sitting in the hosting chair as the acting Healthy Everythingtarian this week and writing a wonderful variety of guest posts. I loved each and every one of them (which ALL got rave reviews from my co-workers!) – THANK YOU!
I also have to thank YOU all – I also got some lovely feedback from the guest posters saying how wonderful Healthy Everythingtarian readers are, and for that, my homedudes, you WILL be rewarded (hint: scroll down to the end of this post).
Good news…I am not homeless in Madison! Woowoo for that! When you read this, I am actually probably currently moving into my new digs. I actually haven’t seen the apartment (one of the downsides of moving from another state…eek!) but a friend looked at it for me and gave it the go-ahead, so I am crossing my fingers it’s no drug house or anything. I guess we’ll see…
This week away from the blogosphere was full of totally awesome firsts…
my first can of Zevia ever
my first giveaway win ever
my first CREAM CHEESE+PEANUT BUTTER+NUTELLA empanada ever
my first Shocktop beer ever
…as well as lots of normal daily activities…
pedis with my sissy (my ruby red toesies are on the right)
the usual yogurt-fruit afternoon snack combo
coupons from the lovely peeps at Chobani
wise words of wisdom i find useful when wanting to rip my hair out
…and, of course, full of friends!
me + my high school junior year prom date
me and some of my besties
Man, so much housekeeping to do! Listen up yo, here we go, here we go…

Another bloggy award…this time the lovely Justine from Confessions of a S.A.H.M. passed on the “Honest Award” to me for being opinionated (comes easily to me), truthful and writing from the heart. Thank you darlin! I’m supposed to pass it on…but I have to pass it onto all of you for being “honestly” fabulous readers :).
You’re probably thinking, ummm blogger award? In addition, an exciting announcement should also be made by the end of the week for y’all! Stay tuned to find out exactly what that upcoming news entails. Gosh, I’m so mysterious…muah ha ha!
Finally…I have to give a huge, long overdue shout-out to my (former :() co-worker Laurie who is single-handedly responsible for giving me the kick in the butt I needed to start this blog. In other words, she is the one you can yell at thank for my foodie ramblings, bad jokes and daily appearances here on The Healthy Everythingtarian. Love you Laur!
So, get ready to back on normal schedule including some “This and That” love and a looonnnngggg overdue “Holly Investigates” post. Now that I am finally settling in, the bloggy goodness is going to skyrocket with awesomeness. Does that even make sense? Ahhhh…whatev – enjoy the weekend everyone!
