I'm totally not sticking to my word of the year to "simplify" and I'm drowning over here... I have been up to my eyeballs with party planning, Sugar Bit trunk shows and travel for market, finalizing taxes, working on our Disney trip, juggling our family time, and I need everything to start moving in slow motion because I know I can't keep it up much longer. Put it this way, I am waving the red flag and calling in reinforcement.
Cancer sucks... there, I said it. It has impacted way too many people around me lately, and I can't stand hearing that word any more. Go away cancer.
Competition: why does everyone feel the need to compete so much with each other? Is it that bad to be happy for someone when they get a promotion or hit a goal or whatever it may be... empower your friends guys!!
I've been slacking on the skin care routine lately... so many products to use morning and at night and I am lucky if I shower daily. Basically, if I wash my face before hitting the bed, I call that a success. I know, I need to be better.
I had some "unknown" comments about sponsored content and wanted to address it head on. I get it, you don't like a ton of sponsored posts... note taken. I will be honest and say that it is nice to work with companies on collaborations that I enjoy talking about. And yes, there sometimes is money involved which helps out in terms of blog design, updates, giveaways, etc... please don't hold that against me, BUT having said that, I will work to make sure I'm doing a fair mix of original content and sponsored posts. Constructive criticism please. Any ideas on some fun topics you'd like me to write about or feature?
The beach is in 4 weeks and I have said for the past two months I would make it to the gym 3-4 times a week = complete fail! I'm lucky if I make it twice :/. Damn you lurking Easter candy, baby shower cookies and cupcakes and everything else I keep finding that includes sugar... and yeah that occasional champagne as well!!!
Apparently I am turning to a coffee cup collector...the more the merrier as far as I am concerned and I'm liking the way it looks in the cabinet. A little fresh change of pace for my normal, all white, type-A loving ways.
I haven't been reading OR commenting on many blogs these past few months and I miss the connection between ladies and friends in the blogging community... hoping I can remedy that and be more present! To you blogging friends, I promise I'm paying attention, I'm just not being as "engaged".
I need a date night out with my husband... like ASAP. We've been so busy with social and work and other obligations that we've let our monthly date night out routine go out the door. I sure do miss that one-on-one time with my Jeff. We have one coming up in a few weeks and I am counting down the days.
I get SO nervous when I post fashion features on the blog... maybe I overthink it and am too critical of myself, but I know I will never be a model, nor do I claim to be, BUT dressing up from time to time and showing off closet pieces sure beats a "normal" day!
Any confessions you're just dying to let out???
