Spring Football has begun and we've got gymnastics, Daisies, bible study, softball, Open House, Glass Slipper meeting...it's a Manic Monday for sure.
But here are a few "thoughts" I wanted to share with you before I get lost in my week...
I started Menu Planning again. Actually, I never stopped. I just got bad about regularly posting my plans and menus to Haute Plates. But I'm back. At least this week. So go check it out! Have a recipe you'd like to share? I'd love to have you guest blog at Haute Plates! Leave me a comment or email and let me know.
You've heard of Netflix, right? I discovered something EVEN BETTER this weekend! (Better that is, if you love to read like I do!) It's called BookSwim. Join for a monthly fee, create your book que, and then receive bestsellers in the mail to keep and read at your leisure. Return them when you are finished in the pre-paid envelope. No late fees. No due dates. I think this is awesome. I love to read, but don't have the time to peruse the bookstore like I would like, finding my next read. And I am running out of room to store all the books I read! I pass some on to my sister, mom, girlfriends...but this seems like a great alternative. Subscriptions start at $24 per month for 3 books out at a time. I spend money each month on Amazon buying books and paying for shipping anyway. All my reader friends...what do you think? What books should I add to my que?
I gotta watch LOST before Laura gets home and blogs about it tomorrow!
I'm in a running slump and need to get out. I haven't ran since the half marathon. For varied reasons. But today was the first morning I woke feeling depressed about it and needing to pound the pavement. This happens to me. I cycle between exerting my energy physically and creatively. Lately I've been spending all my extra time and "juice" sewing and making stuff for my shop. While creating in this way brings me satisfaction too...it does nothing for my middle! And I love to eat...so therefore I must run. Time to even out the cycle and get it not so lopsided!
Speaking of creating...here are some new Red HAUTE things I made this weekend:
My mom, sister and I have been obsessing on a baby shower for my sister in law. She's due in July with a BOY! The invites go out today...so sneak peek of our theme coming soon! I've been trying to post more regularly over at Haute Dates too...which is where I'll do the Baby Shower Sneak Peek later this week. What kind of party posts do you want to see in the future?
Happy Monday everyone!
