5 Days…

Wow, it does not feel like it’s been 5 days since my last post. I got a little overwhelmed trying to come up with ideas for my topic day so I kind of steered clear of blogging. I was not enjoying myself. I will still do my Top 13 every once in a while, but in general, I’m gonna write about what I want to write about, when I want to! No pressure!

Now, I am about to post a new recipe. It was TO DIE FOR. Simple and quite tasty!

Anyways (I know! I hate that saying but whatever!), I just wanted to give a shout out and apologize for no writing. I have been spending a lot of time with my family. I can’t complain. It’s been nice. I’ve also been reading A LOT. I mean a lot, a lot. I’ve read three series in the last 5 days. I am a very fast reader and the books were not horribly wrong. I love indulging in YA books 🙂

I’ve also been slacking with my crochet. I was planning on having it done by Valentine’s Day for my mama but I don’t see that happening. Oh well, go with the flow lol

Time to set up my recipe post. Peace out.

Kids, and Reading, and Crocheting…Oh My!

Well, this week definitely wasn’t the best week to start topic days…I have been SO busy with 6 kids, 2 dogs, a husband, and WARM weather. We were outside all day, ON TOP of me reading a new book series by Jennifer Armentrout (if you haven’t heard of her, look her up! Romance and action!!!), and crocheting up a storm. I have been bored for months, but thanks to my husband’s awesome raise, I have been able to perform more hobbies.

I am now blogging, reading a new series, crocheting (I have 3 planned afghans I need to complete), and trying out a ton of new recipes. I am SO THANKFUL I get to stay home and do this, but I cannot wait for the day when I get my Ph.D. and actually become a counselor. Even though I am a SAHM (Stay At Home Mom), I am super busy!!! Don’t get me wrong, I love every second, but I really wish I could have started this week off a little better. I am so thankful for those of you that take the time to read my posts. I ramble on A LOT, but it’s nice to get my opinions, thoughts, ideas, and experiences out in the open.

Stay tuned for my Top 13 Movies of the 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s tomorrow! This should be FUN!!!!

Getting Organized

recite-102u4vn

So now that I am finally learning how to navigate the blogging world pretty smoothly, I have decided to start organizing certain posts on certain days. I have seen people with multiple blogs: like one for food, one for fashion, and one for opinions and just writing. Whew!!! I don’t know how they can handle multiple blogs when handling one takes up so much time! So to organize this craziness in my head I will be assigning days. Below you will see what I have come up with so far.

  • Mental Mondays ~ Mondays I will be writing posts pertaining to life, psychology, and opinions.
  • Top 13 Tuesdays ~ Books, movies, quotes, anything really that can be put into a countdown-type list. I picked “13” because it’s my lucky and favorite number!
  • Wacky Wednesdays ~ Pictures, videos, jokes, and anything else…humor!
  • Terrific Thursdays~ All about inspiration and self-help.
  • Food Fridays ~ Recipes Galore! I have been on a cooking spree for a few weeks now. I am cooking so many new dishes that I feel like that is the main direction this blog is going. While I’ve always wanted to blog about recipes, I want this blog to be more, so I will limit my recipes to only one day a week (although I can’t promise I won’t post multiple recipes on Fridays lol).

There we go. It’s a work in progress, like this blog, so this is not set in stone. I am really enjoying writing my thoughts, ideas, and creations. This also gives me some flexibility to write what I want to write, when I want to. I can just schedule it for a future posting date. Took me a few days to figure that one out, but now that I have, I have been writing up a storm.

My heart feels lighter, my head is clearer, and life seems to be falling into place. I don’t know if it’s the blog specifically, but having a reason to actually write for others instead of just myself has gotten my creative neurons firing. I am excited to see where this blog will go!
