Thoughts and things

Today is a random day...and once upon a time there was a blogger that I LOVED (she has since stopped blogging) that used to do a "Random Wednesday" link up, and I miss that! So I'm reviving the topic for the day! Here's a random list of things that are running through my head at the current moment...

1 || I woke up early to cut a ton of veggies and brown the beef shoulder and cannot wait to inhale that beef stew when I get home tonight! I feel so productive when I make dinner before I've even put my contacts in, haha!

2 || Today is my brothers 19th birthday. I'm not sure who told him it was okay to grow up, but regardless, here we are. He and I are very close, and although we haven't seen much of each other lately, he will always be on of my favorite people on Earth.

3 || Blogging isn't coming as natural to me as it once was. I'm not quitting, but I just feel like I've lost my mojo lately! I need some fresh ideas...anyone??

4 || I feel naked without my fitbit. It died on my way to work and that just sucks.

5 || I need to make grocery shopping a weekly thing, like every Sunday or something. No matter what. When we don't have fresh groceries in the house, we spend too much money eating out and also eat WAY too much junk. Not good!

6 || I love entering giveaways. Somebody's gotta win them! Might as well be me! ;)

7 || Caleb and I are so close to launching our business website and I can't wait to show everyone! We have been working hard on it, and its all really coming together! You'll see lots of gorgeousness liiiike.....

8 || One of my favorite co workers (who was actually closest to my age) quit and her last day was on Friday! The office seems so quiet and I miss our random conversations!

9 || It was so much fun seeing my bestie last weekend. I love that she is living her dream and finally living in TN, but I miss the crap out of her!! We had way too much fun Saturday with our sleepover and although our time together was short, it was a blast! Can't wait til next time!

10 || I'm wearing a new skirt I scored from Loft over our staycation, and I'm not wearing tights with it. I'm not sure how much longer the "warm Fall weather" will last, so I'm taking advantage of it while I can! This thing was only $3.88. I could hardly believe it!

Sometimes, a girls just gotta make some lists. I hope everyone has a great week. We're halfway there!!!

  1. wow! what a bargain that skirt was. i pretty much wear tights year round because my office is so cold, but i wear thicker ones in the winter lol. i'm sorry your blogging mojo has disappeared, i feel like mine kinda has too, but it's that time of year/things that are happening in my life etc. i'm sure it will come back. can't wait to see your business website!

  2. I really need to be better about grocery shopping, too. It's been better the last couple of weeks but unless I really commit I see the holidays really throwing a wrench in my plans! Also, my brother turns 21 in a few months and I am NOT handling it well.

  3. Have you guys taken Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University? Josh & I took it in the spring and I started grocery shopping with cash every Friday evening/Saturday morning (usually whenever I'm toddler-free) and we went from spending $900 one month on food (groceries + eating out) to spending $200-250 on food (plus Josh's $100/month that he spends on dinners at work). And before, when we spent $900 we were not meal planning and we would have MAYBE two actual meals in a week. Now we have 4-5 depending on J's work schedule. But the weekly shopping thing has been so nice - it makes things so much less stressful!

  4. Whatever you do, don't quit blogging. You are one of my FAVOURITE bloggers! I feel like I relate so well to you (being close in age, recently married, etc). It's actually kinda crazy, I feel like if I knew you in person that we'd be really good friends. Yay for bargains, birthdays, and your new photography business! Happy Wednesday :)

  5. Wow a $4 skirt! That's amazing! And totally, if it's warm enough to still wear it sans leggings, go for it! :)

  6. My husband and I always go shopping on Sundays so we can get everything that we need for the week. It prevents us from eating out during the week which is healthier, and saves us money!

  7. $4 for a Loft skirt?! That's a steal! I agree with the weekly shopping. I didn't do mine this past weekend and you can imagine it's been a bit of mish mashed stuff going on in my kitchen!

  8. Under $4?!?! Um that's amazing. And yes I'm being like everyone else and commenting on how amazing that price is...because it really is amazing!

    #3 is happening to me so hardcore right now. I just can't blog. Can't find the words or the will, ha! It'll come back. Christmas things should be good inspiration ;)

    Three cheers to getting dinner started before breakfast even gets started! ;)

  9. A tip about your dead fitbit that I found out with mine the other day - I had hooked it up to charge, thought it had and when I got to work found out mid day that it had died. However that night when I got home (because I left it on not to lose it) it still had been tracking my steps. I thought it was weird since it was dead but wasn't going to argue it.

  12. I usually grocery shop on Saturday but it is always a madhouse! A few weeks ago I went early, before work one day, about 7:30. It was GLORIOUS. I think I might need to make that my new routine.

  13. Yay for new, cheap skirts! And super excited about your business launch!

  14. There is nothing I love more than having dinner ready when I get home. The smell gives me all the heart eye emoji. I am just so ecststic for the launch of your new business. I can't wait to see it all come together.

  15. Can't wait to see your website! Ok this time I've got it right...happy belated birthday to your brother! lol. There must be a blogging funk going around. I have been feeling the same way & I just read a couple of other people's blogs & they said the same thing. Let's hope we all get it back soon.

  16. Ugh, my Fitbit died, too. Apparently, for good. It won't hold a charge, and the date and time are wrong for the hour or two it's actually powered on. You really do feel naked without 'em once you get used to wearing them all the time!
