Sorry Folks, Georgia Is Closed.

Feb 26, 2015

Thank you, Winter Storm {whichever name we're on now, I can't keep up this year} for giving me a snow day yesterday! As soon as the snow started falling my boss called it, and the office closed. Yay! OH and the governor of Atlanta also shut the city down at 2. We take our snow very seriously around here. Lets not forget Atlanta's infamous Snowpacalypse  2014. Am I right? Buncha crazies.

I wish I could say Evelyn was super excited about this abnormal winter weather that arrived yesterday but I would totally be lying. When it started falling while we were in the car on the way home she started crying. Poor baby was scared of it. Once we got home and she saw Kingsley having so much fun in the backyard I convinced her to at least give it a shot. She clearly was not impressed.

Currently | Vol. 3

Feb 25, 2015

It has been quite some time since I've done one of these so I thought I'd give a little life update in the form of a questionnaire. You can find Vol. 1 here and Vol. 2 here. :)

Thinking About:

How ready I am for Spring to arrive. Being that I live in the South, I know many of you are probably scoffing at me right now (HA what does she know of winter, anyway?) but seriously I hate the cold. And for a southern girl like me, these past few weeks of below freezing HIGH temperatures have definitely been enough for me to start dreaming of Spring time. Not to mention the ridiculous amounts of snowfall that they've forecast for this afternoon! {Fingers crossed that weirdo groundhog was wrong this year and Spring will show up sooner than later. Whats up with that little dude anyway?} Feel free to check out my Pinterest board for some warm weather inspiration! 

Weekly Wishes | Vol. 4

Feb 23, 2015

Ah, Monday. Today did not start off well so I'm hoping that putting my goals down on paper {so to speak} will help turn my luck around. It's all about optimism. Positive vibes only please.

If you'd be interested in checking out previous Weekly Wishes here they are:

Vol. 1
Vol. 2
Vol. 3


Hit publish on at least 4 of the blog posts I have just hanging out in my drafts as unfinished thoughts. I'm tired of seeing the number grow ever larger and having so many half finished projects. It's time to check some things off my bloggy to-do list! (Plus it'll certainly help me out with my goal from last week about scheduling my posts more frequently. Win-win.)

This Weekend: Relax

Feb 20, 2015

Last weekend was seriously so wonderful for me. Why? What made it so wonderful? Believe it or not, I did absolutely nothing last weekend. And it was so much needed.

Now, I say "nothing" but what I really mean is that I had no definitive plans set for those two days. This is such a rarity for me you guys. At first I honestly just didn't know what to do with my time. Finally I decided to roll with it instead of making plans with someone and just see what happened. And it turned into one of the best weekends I've had in quite some time.

My main focus was de-cluttering, and I like to think was pretty productive in that sense. I de-cluttered my home, my ever-growing to do list, and most importantly, my mind.

That Time I Went To See Katt Williams

Feb 18, 2015

Let me just start out by saying I LOVE Katt Williams. Seriously. The guy's hilarious and you and I both know it. However, my first experience at his comedy show was just not very good. Don't get me wrong, he was a good entertainer, made me laugh, told good jokes, current events were covered. It was good. Except that he ran off stage 30 minutes into what was supposed to be a 2 hour run, ending the show early and leaving us all very confused.

Turns out he really was sick. Like went to the hospital and was on bed-rest for the rest of the week and had to cancel tour dates sick. So on that note, props to him for coming on stage at all the night I went. I can certainly respect him for trying.

It really wasn't Katt that was the issue with his tour though. Even with him running off stage and the show ending early. What was worse were the less than quality "comedians" for lack of a better term that we had to endure for the 2 hours before Katt made it on stage. There were I think 4 total and only one of them barely made the cut to be called an actual comedian...the others were pitiful, at best. One even decided to go the route of making all of her jokes centered around sex and exes, etc.

Word of advice, if you are an aspiring comedian and you're on tour with Katt Williams, please come up with better material than lame sex jokes. Please.

Weekly Wishes Vol. 3

Feb 16, 2015

I've decided to bring back my weekly wishes post every Monday because

1. I miss making goals that I am actually held accountable for and
2. I'm just not ready to commit to monthly goals again yet.

Plus, I just love the idea of weekly goals. It's a great way to stay focused and make sure that you are moving in the right direction by having this little weekly reminder. So without further ado, here are my goals for the week of February 16-22!

First Time Finger Painting - Toddler Activity

Feb 15, 2015

Evelyn's first time finger painting! I definitely went the easy route with this one and bought Crayola's No-Mess finger paint and paper but it was still fun! Evelyn loved it and she doesn't know the difference yet anyway so no harm done ;) Plus, way easier clean up for mommy which means more time for chasing an amazingly fast toddler around the house. 

Here's a little re-cap:

The Single Girl's Guide to Valentine's Day

Feb 6, 2015

Is it just me or is Valentine's Day the worst excuse for a holiday? I mean really. If you're a happy couple then you shouldn't need this holiday to remind you to do nice things for one another and if you're single it's like the universe is laughing at you and simultaneously giving you the finger.

I can't be the only one who feels this way.

Regardless, I've been brainstorming ways that I can make the day special for myself and also create a distraction from the general annoyance that goes along with V-day.  After all, who's better than you for making yourself happy, right?

SO, here's what I've come up with as a few options to pamper myself this Valentine's Day. Feel free to steal a few ideas, I promise I won't be upset ;)

10 Blog Post Ideas For The Uninspired

Feb 3, 2015

How do you stay inspired to blog? Does writing out a blog post come totally naturally to you with no hesitation or are you constantly looking for inspiration of some sort? I'd say I'm definitely more of the latter. It's quite inconvenient at times, but it is what it is and I've accepted it as such. 

This is actually what brings me here today, because as I've been scouring the internet and Pinterest over the past few days trying to find some great ideas for fresh (but still relevant) new content for my little corner of the internet, I thought it would only be decent of me to share with you all a few of the ideas I've found. I fully intend on using every one of these at some point but don't hold me to that ;) Ha!

And without further ado, here you go:
