I usually don’t skip my Thursday posts BUT I’m doubling up on posts today to make up for it! 🙂 I’m kind of combining two different post into one – hopefully it will answer some of your questions.
First of all, HAPPY first day of fall! If you know me at all, you know I’m happiest during the fall – especially October. There’s just something about all the fall feels. I really think I’m supposed to live in the mountains somewhere and John wouldn’t be opposed to it. However, we are happy here and love being near family so we’ll be “staying put”. Anyway, when I was growing up I was your typical Type A-type gal . You know the type: the ones who do not allow any red-dot notifications on their iPhones! Love being organized, love planners, love pens, love school supplies, cute containers, etc. Seriously so stereotypical, some may roll their eyes. Then adult life happened and I’m just not quite like that so much. For example, I have 367 unread texts right now! It’s so bizarre how quickly life changes after college when you are married, buy a home, start a career. Between running my business single-handedly & trying to keep our house in order while John is practicing medicine, we never have time to slow down & relax, i.e. no TV, no books, no Zumba! Now, add Luke to the mix and whoa! Of course, he’s our #1 priority and I am determined to rethink everything so that I can spend every second I possible with him & with John …& Fitz… and maybe even squeeze in a Zumba class!
After re-reading ^, allow me to clarify that I loveeeeee All Things Above. I know how fortunate we are. .I just get asked quite frequently about how I balance it all and I’m basically admitting I do a poor job of it BUT I am working on it! I just need to get past the growing pains and get organized. (Enter Coco) Yep, my mom’s expected arrival time is 6:00 p.m. tonight. While she and Luke are reading and talking, and singing and strolling, I’ll be getting organized…maybe for the rest of the year (wink). Yesterday I learned from a poll I took on Twitter inquiring about which posts are your favorites that you all LUV beauty posts. Home posts ran a close second. BTW, I have lots of home posts on the blog but I plan to create a HOME tab this weekend so you can easily access all of the rooms in our home. If there is something specific in the home you’d like to see that isn’t featured, let me know. I’ve already done posts on holiday decor as well but I can do an updated one for this fall, too.
We can’t discuss organizing and planning without mentioning a planner, right? I use the same planner each year from Target. It’s a perfect fit for my LV agenda & I actually prefer it over the LV planner. I have to give Target an A+ on their school supplies aisle with all their fun stickers, magnets, washi tape, post-its, etc! (insert smiley face). Oh, btw, those cute, colorful gold-trimmed markers you’ve seen on my IG stories are from Walgreens and they stocked in every Walgreens! Okay, time to prep for the Coco☺.
I’ll link every thing else in the widget below.
