Success

Do you know what today is?  It’s actually a two part answer.  One you don’t know the other one you do.  Let’s start off with the most important one.

It’s the oh so fabulous hubs’ birthday.  🙂  HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  We’re definitely going to have a month long celebration since we’ll be celebrating this weekend with friends, then while we’re on our vacation, and then when we return with family (we’re stopping at home after our vacation before coming back to the left coast).

So what’s the other thing?  I’ve successfully completed my month (It was supposed to be 30 days but I said NO to posting on the weekends.  Rest days.) blog challenge.  It was fun but hard work.  There were definitely days I was more proactive with posting and scheduling them in advance.  Other days where I posted at the 11th hour because I was so busy.  But I love it.  I’m going to keep trying to post daily for you loves.

I know the posts lately have been more geared toward my upcoming trip.  I want to share my tips and tricks with you all when it comes to travel.  While I’m not a complete expert road warrior, I’ve picked up a trick or two and want to share them.  I’m hoping to have more lookbook posts soon.  Lately, I’ve been lazy and uninspired (usually dressing in jeans or shorts and a tshirt) leaving my hopefully fashionable looks for our upcoming trip.  Same thing with the foodie posts.  My sister and mom were in town for 2+ weeks and we were either eating out or my mom cooked or we had tons of leftovers, so I haven’t really experimented in the kitchen like I usually do.  I’m hoping to make a couple things to share with you before we leave, especially since we have a ton of food in the refrigerator and don’t want to have to throw it away.  It’s when we don’t have much in the refrigerator or I know I have to use something up (before it reaches that point of going bad) that I feel most creative then.  Thinking about it now I’m thinking an egg dish may come out of it.  You know how I love me some eggs.  NOMNOMNOM.  Thinking about it just makes me hungry… I may have somethign with an egg on top for lunch  🙂  I’m also still trying to figure out how I’d like to post my DIY bracelet tutorial.  I took picture and videos but I didn’t like how they turned out so I may have to redo them.  I also have a couple other DIYs to show you like this no-sew tutu I made for my nieces.

I’d love to hear any suggestions you may have on what you’d like to see more of.  Lookbook posts?  Traveling Tips (although I have a couple of those coming up in the next week or two)?  Recipes?  DIYs?  Home decor (although we’re STILL in the process of decorating)?  Jewelry organization (I think I may have one for you since I set up my mirror amoire)?  Make-up organization?  Comment below and I’ll see what I can put together for you.

With that said, I want to thank you for stopping by and subscribing.  I’ll try to blog or schedule some blogs while on vacation.  If I’m not updating here, I’ll be updating my twitter.

HAPPY FRIDAY!  HOPE YOU HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

blog challenge

Why, hello there!  I know it’s been almost a month since my last post and I apologize.  I went home for a couple of days for the niece’s birthday.  Then I went to Jersey for work and was working somewhat late hours and didn’t have the chance to blog, which was followed by a weekend trip to New York with my sister and cousin.  Since then I’ve been lazy and just all out of sorts… thinking about possible life changing situations.  I dont want to talk about it too much because I don’t want to jinx anything.  If things work out I will share it with you.

I’m still in the process of vamping up my blog which I’m sure you could tell.  The hubs FINALLY got a chance to take pictures for my banner and icon but after we took the pictures (which were taken at dusk) & looked at them, we decided I was wearing the wrong colors and would need to retake them, but we haven’t gotten the chance to.  It’s a long process because he’s such a busy body with work and school.  I would do it myself but he’s my graphic designer.  😛  I love when he works on creative stuff for me/us.  He designed our wedding invitations, programs, menus, escort cards, table names, etc and I wouldn’t have it any other way.  I was SO in love with the result even though it took a bit of disagreeing in the beginning.  ha.

Anyways,  to make up for being such a bad blogger I’m going to try to do the blogging challenge.  It’s blogging for 31 day, but that’s a tad impractical.  The weekends should be days off so I’m going to try to blog consistently on the weekdays for a month.  Thereafter, I have a big trip but hopefully I can schedule a couple blogs ahead of time to post.  I would say I’d blog on vacation but I’m not sure about all that.  The posts will be a variety of topics from diys, food, lookbooks, wishes, reviews, hauls, random thought of the day… you get the idea.

So here’s my first post… I hope ya’ll will join me in this journey.  🙂  Day one down.
