Friday Favorites: slacksplaining my absence

i hate blog posts that begin with an apology for having been gone for so long, for not writing, for ignoring readers in favor of real life pursuits. so i’m not going to be that blogger. suffice to say there has been a lot going on in my world recently and now that the dust has settled…

5 on Friday: a(nother) Writing 101 mashup

(photo: thrillist.com) um. didn’t Writing 101 end like 6 weeks ago? you’re asking. i know, right? but here i am. still. did i ever tell y’all that i didn’t graduate college on time? yeah, somehow at the finish line, i still needed one more class and ended up hanging around Winter Park for the summer…

Friday favorites: procrastination edition

so today’s Writing 101 challenge asked us to write a post about one of 5 Tweets. this one obviously spoke to me. it’s been a weird, long short week. and i definitely believe procrastination is essential to creativity. here are a few ways i have procrastinated this week. and i totally feel more creative for…

Friday favorites: Labor Day edition

soooo looking forward to the long weekend! who’s with me?? the beginning of September always gets me energized to get things organized and (re)start some good new habits. to that end, i have a huge to-do list to tackle over the next 3 days, but instead of feeling overwhelmed i’m excited! here are a few…

yay! it’s a big Friday around here: Miss Girl makes her acting debut this afternoon in a video we’re shooting for a client (free talent is good talent on this budget). i can’t wait to see how she does pretending to make popcorn and watch a movie with her fake family. speaking of fake families, i…

NaBloPoMo day 29: Small Business Saturday haul

while i hate every single thing about yesterday’s shopping shenannigans with the white-hot intensity of 1,000 suns, my feelings about today’s shopping cause is equally as strong in the opposite direction. running a small business — especially retail — is hard. and i love to do anything i can to support those businesses owners whenever…

NaBloPoMo day 15: Atlanta Olive Oil Company

at the end of a lazy Saturday morning of sleeping in (at least for me — yay!), grabbing breakfast out and meandering around Westside Provisions for far too long for a day when i had a hefty to do list, we made one last unplanned stop on the way home. we’d seen the “Coming Soon”…

so happy to have Spy home for a few days and revert to at least some degree of normalcy here for a bit before he’s off traveling the world again. that is my very favorite thing this Friday! the plan is to lay low this weekend and do stuff around the house, including a little Halloween decorating….

Blogtober 14: fall fashion

one word, people. pants. i still don’t have the pants thing figured out. this post-weight-loss shopping is totally not as fun as it sounds. but it is to be hoped that between my recent trip to the seamstress and an Old Navy order currently being processed, i will at least have that ridiculously basic problem solved…

one work week of single-mommydom almost down! if that’s not a reason to celebrate Friday, i sure don’t know what is. somewhere between running double-duty on carpool and hostessing Barbie show marathons, i managed to come across a couple cool things that a preschooler would probably hate. enjoy and happy Friday, y’all! being a card…

just a few funsies this week. looking forward to beautiful fall weather and a productive weekend with the whole family at home before Spy runs off to Europe for a bit. TGIF!   perfect passtime over the past couple weeks, i at least started the process of cleaning out and organizing my closet for fall. not fun. unfortunately/fortunately, i…

wow. it has been an insane week. well, couple of weeks. maybe it was the full moon, but everything has just seemed to be running at a completely heightened pace and there’s hardly a minute to breathe. i’m very much looking forward to a quiet-ish weekend that includes a Saturday drive in the countryside and…
