Weekend Wrap-up

This Week: Happy Saturday folks! It's been a while since I've had a weekend open for a Weekend Wrap-up post. but man it's been a crazy fast and eventful week! Lots of plans and checklists, lots of late nights, unexpected fun and conversations and get-togethers, a little less Spring cleaning than I would have liked (but progress is progress right?), some big decisions made, surprise visits, LOTS of wonderful fresh air accompanied by walks to the park and other such outings, fun treats (of course treats:)) and on and on. I've also really needed to step back this week and try to reevaluate a lot of aspects of my daily routine with work and house/family, etc, because as the kids are becoming older and are getting a little tougher to keep track of, things are getting busier for sure and finding time for it all is definitely a challenge. I feel like I'm right on the edge of a big break through though and it's almost time to jump off. I feel a sense of determination to succeed, and also hope for a brighter tomorrow. No matter how hard things may get, there's always that light at the end of the tunnel:)
Weekly Snapshots: the best chicken fried steak in the world // my typical 'mom uniform' that includes comfy jeans, a loose long sleeve or sweater, and my minnetonka mocs or some converse // an awesome exchange of my nervousness for your confidence and reassurance // my first new video this month, kickstarting a whole slew of videos that will be coming frequently! // my candle obsession // the coolest replica lens mug along-side the real lens // a bunch of fun new beauty items that came in the mail // a corner of our upstairs library // looking back at a favorite from my festival/boho tutorial week

To-do's and Goals for the Week:
- sort out the case lot stuff into the pantry
- get caught up on emails (story of my life right?
- keep up with laundry
- stick to my workouts and meal plan for the week
- keep filming daily videos
- clean the rest of the closet (=shop my closet goodies!)
- ship out waiting packages 
- start eating lunch at the park again
- cook up the rest of the asparagus

A Few Facts: 
  • we're going through The Office again together little by little, and it just gets better every time
  • I've been slacking a lot with consistent workouts and clean eating and I've felt pretty sluggish, so cold turkey we're starting Monday morning again with our competition prep diet for the next week. I'm pretty excited!
  •  I've still never used an eyelash curler in my life. is that weird? haha I've owned one for a while now, but ever since I had a friend get her eyelashes snipped off I've been so scared of them! haha also I have really naturally curly eyelashes so it's not really a big deal.
  • I'm feeling my usual Summertime watermelon craving coming on this last week

Something Awesome for today: finding something you've missed greatly wedged in the couch cushions:) 

Thanks for visiting, and I'll see you back here tomorrow! 
xo, Emily

  8. Loving your recap! What service do you use to sell your clothes? I've been an avid ebay user, and am new to Poshmark. Are there others to consider?
