You all seem to LOVE the confessional posts where we toss ourselves out there with the good, the bad, and the ugly so I thought I'd share some more confessions for my weekly Five on Friday post!
ONE || Hoarding scares the crap out of me and I am SO not one to "collect" things, though I have recently noticed I am an avid purchaser of napkins for parties, holidays, and such... Anyone else out there love them? Homegoods, Paper Source, and Swoozies are my jam and I can always find some goodies there under $10.
TWO || We let our nanny go last week... and as hard as it was, it took so much anxiety and stress off my plate that I knew it was the right choice. Luckily,we had been interviewing for quite some time and think we found "the one" and fingers crossed our new addition is the right fit... I think a full nanny breakdown blog post is in my future... anything specific you'd like to hear? I feel like I have a wealth of knowledge on this topic now, whether I'd like to or not. Damn you Mary Poppins for setting the bar so high!
THREE || Caroline's birthday is less than two months away and of course planning is already in full swing [thanks to the fab Beth Hart Designs, per usual]... I might have just died a little bit inside when she said she wanted it at JumpStreet, but I know it's HER party and she will be thrilled to have her little friends join in the Disney princess fun... adios to my "pretty" parties though I know Jeff is super excited. And of course, I had to add in a little something super special so her favorite Princess [AKA Cinderella] will be coming to play, too! Thanks fabulous friends at Party Belles of Nashville.
FOUR || Ever feel like your heart and your head are telling you two different things? 'm struggling with wanting to open a brick and mortar storefront for Sugar Bit... it's been weighing on me for a very long time and it's always been part of our five-year business plan, but it's so overwhelming and I get anxious, scared, hesitant, etc. I am really trying to pray about what the future holds for our growing company and I am grateful for how far we've come, but I can't lie... I desperately long to connect with our sweet customers face-to-face and serve a need for our local shoppers. Only time will tell, right?!?!
FIVE || We are starting to plan the details [AKA dining and experiences] for our Disney trip in September with our travel expert and there are so many options that it is completely overwhelming for an OCD/type-A person like myself. Thank heavens for Excel, a Disney guru, and easy to navigate websites to make it SO much easier! I best be saving my money for all the sweet matching ensembles, Bippity Boppity Boutique necessities, and all the other Disney treasures... oh Dole Whips I heart you so!
That's all I've got for this week's confessions my friends... hope I didn't bore you too much with my rambling and nonsense. Excited for a fun weekend filled with family outings, baby registry fun for one of my best gals Saturday, church on Sunday, and catching up on some household chores before going out of town next week. Cheers
