Coming, Coming, back, back, from Cali, Cali

A good blog friend of mine and I once discussed how stupid it is to apologize for a delay in posts. It really is dumb, I know that the world didn't stop turning because "Candyfloss & f'ing Persie" wasn't updated for a few days. However, it still feels wrong to not address my absence! As I mentioned before, I flew to California last week for a week long business trip. There was a lot to do there: training, working, networking, etc. My mind was swelling with new relationships and ideas. And on the downtime that I had? I decided that instead of being in my hotel room writing Blogs until the wee hours, that I would instead flee into the near areas and explore what I could while I could. Sight-seeing on business trips, whether solo or with groups, is one of my favorite things to do and I convinced myself to put down the keyboard and do just that - so I didn't go onto Blogger all week.

So how was California? Good! And more to come this week. However, as I've talked myself into change lately. There's a few very, very simple ideas that I'm going to run with (crazily) for the next few weeks to get where I want to be- you ready for them??? They're pretty heavy.
{On UC Davis campus 6/23/2011}

The California Girl in me will spend the entire week eating low-carb, working out, using self-tanner and getting some slicker heels. Thank you California for reminding me of the importance in said objectives. (PS- I actually have a lot of legitimate, corporate system navigation that I'm taking home with me from the trip. So this here notation serves as your reminder that I'm not a ditz.)

Happy to be back and look forward to talking to you all again every day this week!!! :)

The world totally did stop turning...didn't you hear? :) I missed you and can't wait to hear your new ideas for change. Maybe it'll inspire me to make some changes myself! You look so gorgeous!

Ashleigh said...

Welcome back! I always feel weird not addressing it too even though, yeah, it's kind of dumb... ;P
Don't blame you a bit for taking a breather, hope you had fabulous time!

Kara said...

So glad you took time to smell the roses while you were on your trip! I can't wait to see all the photos of the cute outfits I'm sure you were rockin' :) Welcome back to the blogosphere!

The summer dress you're wearing in the photo above looks pretty, light and comfortable. I like the ruffles, the waist ant eh look of the print and the fabric.
There's no need to apologize whatsoever. If there were think how many gazillions of apologies I would owe. It's good that your enjoying life and at the same time taking care of both your body, taking care of business, and even taking time to have stopped by my blog more than once since I last posted (thank you).

Such a gorgeous pictures! I'm jealous of your Cali trip :)

I was actually thinking of the same, regarding absence because I haven't made any updates for 2 weeks now. I was also away on "business (bahahaha)" and in no mood to be on blogger or the internet overall. Foolishness is a topmost priority. Blogging and internet come last.

But I sure do have a lot of fodder.

Welcome back!!

You are right you shouldn't have to apologize for being gone but I totally missed your posts while you were gone! and lucky you, us Canadians want to go to California about 98% of the year lol

And this is awesome, definitely the way to go! We all need a break from blogger every once in a while, and I'm glad you spent yours in such a fab place - it seems you came beck renewed, so to say :)

Leia said...

Yay, you're back! Well, the world doesn't stop turning but we sure do miss you when you don't blog :) I think that bloggers often do slow down their posting in the summer because there's so much to do and enjoy when the weather is nice outside!
