Something for the Weekend

I have had is plenty of time to browse online this week and organize my home while I recovered. Here's what's been catching my eye and what I've been up to:

This past Wednesday I underwent nasal fracture surgery to fix my broken nose. I’m a few days into my recovery and feeling better already. I’ve got a blog post on recovering from nasal surgery all ready for early next week with all my tips and tricks to make it a little easier should you be so lucky to suffer through a similar experience. My new …

Something for the weekend

  Check out my lovely mini business cards from Moo – aren’t they great? I ordered a set of 100, each with a different image from past blog posts on them. The back side contains my website information and links to my social media accounts. Not exactly sure what I’m going to do with them, but I had a $15 off coupon, so they only …

Something for the weekend

Well, I started off the week on a less-than-great moment: Sunday night I fainted and hit my face on the edge of my dresser. Then, when I went downstairs to the bathroom to wash off all the blood from my nose, I fainted again and hit the back of my head on the bathtub. A head CT and dozen x-rays later, I have a broken …

Here's a good reminder of something the world just needs a little more of right now - love. There hasn't been a lot of posting on the blog going on over here lately, unfortunately. I did manage to get my newsletter out this week, but the blog posts I'd planned still need a little tweaking before I hit publish, but I'm working on them. I have been spending a lot of time playing with my photo gear and really trying to evaluate if upgrading my camera body is something I need to do.

Something for the weekend

This week has been a little rough, I’m not gonna lie. I’ve been struggling with some depression and haven’t really done much of anything besides take care of the kids and keep the house clean. We had a nice visit with my parents on Sunday and Hannah got some much-loved roller skates for her birthday from them, along with a bunch of fun art supplies …

What's inspiring me this week - Jennadesigns

This past week we celebrated Hannah’s birthday – she’s 8 now! We went out to eat, came home had cake and opened presents. I got Hannah the mother load of art supplies and she was thrilled. Anything to get her off the computer and be a little more creative. Fortunately, she’s loves making art (just like her mama!) so it was a huge hit. I …

30-day Mental Cleanse Challenge – Week 1 recap

The first week of the 30-day Mental Cleanse Challenge is complete! I love this sign that I have displayed in my writing nook as it reminds me that every day we have the choice to make the next a better one. And that’s what this challenge is about – making choices to make subsequent days better days. Below is a reflection of the first week …

Something for the weekend – what’s inspiring me now

You guys, it’s been five weeks now since we adopted Wally, our 9-month-old domestic short hair kitten, and I gotta say, I love this little guy! He’s been my best buddy since we took him home – he follows me all over the house like a dog, sleeps with me during the day while everyone else is gone and greets me at the door when …

30-day Mental Cleanse Challenge

Last month, two bloggers I follow – Kiara at Blissfully Brunette and Erin from A Welder’s Wife – undertook the 30-day Mental Cleanse Challenge. I enjoyed following their progress weekly and have been motivated to give it a shot the month of March. It just sounds like a nice way to ease into spring and something my mind and body is telling me it needs! …

Something for the weekend - what's been inspiring me this week

Hope this last week has treated you nicely! I was asked to submit a write-up and photographs for Amazing Moms: Parents of the 21st Century, a coffee table book by United We Parent and I finally got everything together and submitted this week. It was something of a struggle to get what they considered a decent self-portrait. I just hate being in front of the …
