Phew, back home at last! I spent the last week up in New York visiting my mama (and dropping off Gypsy to stay with her a bit— we’ll be a one-dog family for awhile now), then in New Jersey for Felice’s bachelorette party & bridal shower! I’ll be sharing photos soon-ish.
So although I haven’t had much time to write (work & business to attend to since I’ve been home), I have been keeping up with my blog reading, and these are my top picks of interesting/cool/touching/fun blog posts I’ve read recently. Thought you might enjoy while I spend the day unpacking (and sick in bed, sniffle sniffle).
+ New website with beauty tips & tutorials from Lauren Conrad & Co!
+ A really, really creative & thoughtful video a girl made for her deployed Marine.
+ An awesome post about self-image and loving the body you’re in.
+ Cool ideas to help emotional organization & being healthy sans the gym.
+ A military spouse’s biggest fear… two weeks before her husband was supposed to return.
+ My newest favoritest blog from a twenty-something on blogging like a pro.
+ Fashion find! What to wear to fairs & festivals.
+ An awesome tip on travel photography that I will be trying on my next trip!
+ Borders is going out of business: I picked up this book last week I can’t wait to read!
|This is me. Staring at my computer screen. Thinking, “What was I supposed to be doing?”|
I just don’t know what to do next. So much to do, but not a clue where to start. I hate when this happens.
I seriously spend way too much time online. Most often, I call it “research.” Research for my website, research for work, research for my blog, research for inspiration.
But really, I need to stop “researching” so much and start DOING.
I have so many ideas for projects, blog posts, business concepts, etc. and I need to put them into ACTION! Like starting an Etsy shop? That’s something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile. And getting my site up and running? Another on the list. Updating my scrapbooks? Eternally on the list. It goes on… and on… and on.
Right now, just a few of my top [non-work related] projects include:
How do you stay motivated and make the time to get your projects done?
I think I’ll go organize my closet.

Today I’m off to Boston to visit my bff Sue! She has a blog too, about her adventures as a single gal living in my favorite city in the whole world, Boston. She recently had surgery and will be out of work 6-8 weeks, which I just know will drive her crazy because she’s used to working nonstop, 25/7, and for the most part enjoys it. But I have to visit her one last time before I move, especially now when she can use the company!
My closest cousin, Amanda, is coming with me for the day. It’s the only day off she has all week, and we’ve also wanted to spend time together before I move. So I get to see two of my favorite people today and take a break from packing and my to-do list! Speaking of…
P.S. My love called twice yesterday after over a week since last hearing from him… I love that man! He always knows just what to say and we always have the best conversations in the world… I can’t wait until he’s home! It’s been a very long, stressful, dangerous, anxious, scary deployment!
