First up… we’ve been brainstorming 🙂 Remember a few weeks back I randomly said we’re thinking about extra ways to get to know one another with H54F? Details/more info is coming, but mark your calendar for Thursday, August 27 at 9:30PM EST for a Google Hangout! We’re kind of envisioning everyone with a drink, in their PJs, curled up on the sofa for a good ol’ chat. But stay tuned!
This week’s featured blogger is Amanda from A Brownie World! My favorite reason for featuring a blogger each week is that I get a chance to meet someone new. She’s a fellow North Carolinian, and she had the best post this week with a round up of what’s going on around the state! I definitely need to pay attention to this. We’re always looking for fun activities that are new to us! Swing on over to Amanda and say hi!! I’m so excited to feature her this week.
Hope you had a great week! Here are some highlights!
2. This week has been such a “go go go” week! Between home stuff, consulting projects AND blog fun, it felt like I was really productive, but yet still so behind. I know when I’m feeling behind on things, it means my priorities are out of whack, and I need to figure out what needs to go. Or at least tackle the most important priorities first. So this weekend I need a bit of a reboot.
3. Elizabeth had one of those weeks where she did a lot of whining, fussing, clinging and was generally discontent. Put all that on top of my feelings of being overwhelmed and it made for a horrible combo. BUT we also captured some sweet moments. I cling to these moments when we are both having not so good days.
4. Speaking of clinging to things… when things are going crazy, I value friend time so much! Tonight we’re having dinner with sweet friends – you know the type, the kind where the conversation is easy and there is lots of laughter. And Monday was a fun play date and picnic at Duke Gardens with friends. It’s so smart to find a park with open grass to let kiddos run wild, while the mommies can easily sit, on blankets, and chat while also keeping an eye on everyone. Was such an easy play date! Not to mention Duke Gardens is just beautiful, even when it’s super hot outside. Too bad my photography didn’t do the garden justice.
5. Did you know I’m doing Vlogust over on my YouTube channel? I’m vlogging little snippets each day, and will be uploading something new every single day this month! Hop on over and subscribe so you can keep up. And if you didn’t see, I shared my 5 favorite summer lip colors AND my July monthly favorites. I guess it was a week of favs on the blog! HA!
So what were you up to this week? Let me know! Or better yet, link up!
