A couple of my favorite bloggers write a Currently post with entertaining prompts that get a gal thinking. So that's where my writing comes from today.
Obsessing over: these shoes soon to be my own (a friend thrifted them)!
Working on: an order of wholesale headbands for a local client. Found some sherbert colored fabric and fun spring prints for this custom order. I will likely watch the MadMen season premier while rolling away on rosettes. After that I have several giveaway orders to complete, three custom wreath orders, plus inventory for the Cottage.Thinking about: How I simply cannot keep up with the house.
Anticipating: Most importantly, celebrating Easter and what Jesus did for me!
And, a complete blog overhaul this summer.
I may or may not have hired an incredibly talented and renowned design team.
In the words of GussySews--Yeow!
Listening to: the Little Miss Sunshine soundtrack. I have been listening to 2Cellos on Pandora and the Little Miss Sunshine got sprinkled in. It's wonderful. Instrumental music calms me. Motivates me. Speaks to me. I've always wished I could play an instrument. That one time Shawn and I went to the symphony, us in our fancy young-marrieds attire, my heart felt so full. There's something about a violin that feels so spiritual and touching...with a bit of sadness that reminds you of your humanness and shortcomings~giving you humility.2Cellos

Eating: monster bars. Ladies, my sugar problem has gotten out of control. I am definitely an emotional eater. If one of the kiddos is acting out, or I am just generally stressed out, I reach for a sweet. For a short time, it helps. You'd think my family history of diabetes, etc would whip me into gear. Ideas?That aside, I recommend monster bars for a quick potluck fix or easy recipe to do with the kiddos. You just dump everything in the mixer and mix. Spread in a bar pan and bake 15 minutes.
Wishing: Foremost, I wish Shawn and I could go on a date. It's been awhile. I want to get dressed up and go do something artsy and cultural, like a tour of the art museum or lazy stroll through the library's wonderfully ominous, proud stacks.Secondly, I wish a cleaning fairy would come make all my dreams (for the house) come true.
