It's been a while since I've had a proper random rambling session here on the blog. Grab a cup of tea, get comfy, and let's have a little chat then, shall we? So how have you been? Yes, YOU! It's been a busy month in Liesl Land, and the dust is finally beginning to settle after a hectic Holiday season, a crazy New Years Eve party and finishing up work for the end of the semester at school.
I also had dental skin graft surgery... AGAIN! Third time's a charm, right? There might just be some truth in that, as so far everything looks good and the stitches are coming out on Monday. Hallelujah! I can't go through that again; not being able to eat, speak, laugh... those are my favorite things to do! I'm thankful that it seems that the surgery was successful this time.
In exactly a week I'll be heading off to South Africa on summer vacation. My level of excitement is through the roof, as I haven't been home in 2 years. All I want to do is spend time with my family, catch up with my friends, go to the beach, play with my dog, eat Mom's food, go shopping, read and relax. My brother is also getting married, and it will be my first time being a bridesmaid.
Yesterday was my dad's 64th birthday. I haven't seen him in 2 years and can't wait to give him a bear hug when I get home! I'm thankful that my parents are healthy and happy, and that I'll be able to spend some quality time with them.
Some more exciting news is that my blog recently reached 300 000 views! That's insane, and I feel so blessed. A big thank you to all of you who regularly visit Pretty.Random.Things. and leave me nice comments and send me sweet messages. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, I really appreciate it. And welcome to all the new followers, nice to meet you! Make sure you enter my latest giveaway for a chance to win a Sigma Beauty Travel Kit.
Also, I was finally able to get rid of the horrible pop-up ads on my blog. A while ago I signed up for the Clicksor.com advertising program, and only chose to have some banner ads in the side columns. For some reason Clicksor.com thought that my readers would appreciate some very inappropriate pop-up advertisements. Sorry about that! But thanks to all the sickos out there who actually clicked on those ads, because now I have a nice check in the mail coming my way! You win some, you lose some.
I've been trying to take more pics on Instagram lately. If you like snooping around someone else's daily life, come on over to my page and snoop all you want. I post pictures of anything that tickles my fancy. Also, feel free to leave your Instagram link in the comments, or send me a message, I'd like to check out you guys' pages as well.
Okay, this post is turning into a short story, and my tea is finished, so I'm going to say goodbye for now. If you read all of this, well thank you. You must be at work or extremely bored?... Just kidding! I hope all of you are doing well, and that your heart feels just as happy as mine does right now.
