Goodbye Blogging

I think that I am officially done blogging. I really enjoy reading other people's blogs but I just don't think that writing one myself is really "my thing". To me the blogging world seems to be separated into 4 categories... 1. The funny, witty and honest blogger who says the most un PC things and really tells it like it is while cracking you up. Love this blogger. 2. The super creative blogger who always has a great new craft idea or fabulous home decorating tip. I love reading these blogs but I get super envious and bitter b/c I am far from creative. 3. The oh so annoying braggers. These are the bloggers who are constantly bragging about how perfect their children, husbands, homes, clothes, lives in general are and think that "being honest" about their lives means they occasionally post a no makeup picture of themselves. It's obnoxious. And finally there are the bloggers like my self...number 4. The bloggers who are really trying but their lives are just kind of boring. They either have no kids to post about or they are just no good at Witty banter, crafting, bragging or blogging in general. As I mentioned I fall into the boring blogger category and I'm positive that I will never fit into any other category.

So with that said I will no longer be blogging. If you are a friend of mine in real life you can find me on face book. I love posting photos so as always I will be overloading my face book page with them. I still plan to stay in the blogger world by keeping up with the 10 or so blogs I have been following for the past year...most of you follow mine (or occasionally read mine lol) so you know who you are ;) I love reading yours so please keep em coming!

Just for fun here is a bullet list on why I am not the "blogger type":

I do not have a child.
I am not pregnant.
My wedding and the planning for it is over.
I do not know how to use a glue gun, sewing machine, or scrap booking scissors.
I am way to opinionated.
I am not perfect, and no one would buy it if I tried to act like I was.
I do not buy designer clothes or search the internet for them (but I wish I could)
My house is old, and small and needs quite a bit of work (well less now than before).
I have no decorating skills, seriously I'm lucky if I can pick out sheets to match my comforter.
I do not like cupcakes...or cake in general.
I cook but not gourmet, I mean I cook spaghetti or baked chicken but nothing fancy.
No one wants to see pictures of my dog and cat, even if they are super cute.
I do not like Toms shoes, they are ugly. But I do love that they support a great cause.
I do not like most trends like this ^^^^^ that everyone else loves.
I live in uggs, yoga pants and no makeup.
My idea of a vacation these days is a trip to Philly or a cheap cruise...nothing fancy for the Mixons.
My furniture comes from places like Rooms To Go, not boutiques or Pottery Barn.
Sometimes I am skinny-ish (before vacation), but mostly I'm kinda chubby, no one needs to hear about that.
I really don't have a good sense of one would look to me for tips that's for sure.
My family is awesome, but loud and crazy and drinks a lot.
Ok I drink a lot too...I may or may not be a wine-o.

I'm pretty sure that's enough to put me in the running for the worst blogger of the year award? Ha!

I am not a very tech savvy and the entire blogging process is nothing but a pain for's just not my thing. With that said I have just discovered how to post a video!? Crazy huh? So this is about 10 months too late but here is an adorable video of Baby Cheeks and her Uncle Matt when she was about 6 months old (last Feb.). This is when she first began to really talk and babble alot...and chew on her hands hehehe

a cheeky halloween

Yes it is November. Yes it's only a few days until Thanksgiving. Yes I am just now posting about Halloween. Sue me.

Baby cheeks went as a bumblebee, mainly because my favorite costume of all time was my bumblebee costume circa 1987. My mom was so tickled to see the pictures, but maintains that I was still the cutest bumble bee she's ever seen...we'll see how her story changes once she has grand kids ;) Sam and I went to all sorts of fun Halloween play dates and parties and so did Mommy and Sam, then we all went trick or treating to finish off the Halloween week!

The last photos are from "Miss Katie's" adult Halloween. Matt, Liz (our sister wife ha!) and I went out to "gay Halloween" in Dallas. There is a huge block party and parade in Oak Lawn every year, it was amazing people watching and further confirmed my love of gay people. We met up with Liz's friend Jon and a few others and somehow ended up at Dragon Fly. How you start out a evening at a gay parade (dressed as a gorilla, devil, cat and wrestler) and end up at the Hotel ZaZa is beyond me, but we had a great time!

Sorry for the photo overload!
