Underwater, Bunny Baby, To Do List and My Ugly Couch

I have no idea where this week went. I feel like it was just Sunday and here it is almost Friday.

I have been feeling underwater this week. I am so behind on everything, my house is a disaster, I am behind on some guest blogging posts I have committed too, staying at my parents on Wednesday which just messed up our routine, I have been finalizing my huge giveaway that is set to begin on Wednesday and oh I have an almost 8 month old. Can you say tired Mama?

I do have the cutest little trick or treater though, the tiredness is worth it.


When I am feeling overwhelmed I work best off a list so I am going to post it here in blog land to hold myself accountable.

  1. Make a daily schedule and stick to it. I really need to have a routine, I am staying up too late at night and waking up later and accomplishing nothing.
  2. Develop a blogging schedule. Pretty simple and I think it would help the underwater feeling. I would love to get some posts written in advance to have scheduled. Do you have a system that works for you!? I would love to hear about it.
  3. Buy a new glue gun. I have some exciting opportunities coming up and I need a better one, mine is small and simple.
  4. Newborn photo shoot for Oliver. I can't wait for this one! So excited to do photos like we did for Violet.
  5. Start super secret project for my friend Jen. I know she reads my blog so I can't tell you what it is but it is for her baby girl due in February.
  6. Finish up guest blog post and project for Mandy at Sugar Bee Crafts. Yes! Sugar Bee Crafts! I am so honored that I will be guest posting on her blog. I will let you know when it goes live.
  7. Clean my house. I am going to start one room at a time, I need to get organized. It is really driving me crazy.
  8. Finalize Jingle Jumble Giveaway. It goes live on Wednesday November 7, make sure you come by and enter!
  9. Work on stocking up Etsy shop.
Phew. I am tired just thinking about all that I have to do in addition to the everyday stuff.


And lastly on a personal and completely embarrassing note...would you be kind enough to vote for my hideous couch in a contest? Only for a new couch woud I post this picture.

You is hideous and a love seat and our only couch. See that lovely hole on the armrest? Our old cat started it and now it is Violet's favorite poking hole, she has made it waaaay larger.

So if you take pity on me having to sit on this awful, hideous and uncomfortable couch, could take a few seconds to click this link and like my couch so I can possibly win a new one? I have been scheming on how to afford a new one before Violet's first birthday because I do NOT want that hideous thing in the pictures.

How is that for a completely random blog post?



  1. Love the random! First, cutest bunny I have ever seen. 2nd my To Do list looks very similar to yours--must get my blogging calender functioning again, and third, you need a new couch, girl! :) Hope you win! Thanks for linking up with us for our FIRST MTM Mixer. We hope it will be the first of many!

  2. Violet looked super cute in her bunny costume. Sorry you are feeling overwhelmed. I understand that it is not a fun feeling. You are right to make a list and tackle things one at a time. You can do it!

  3. Aww....I love the bunny tail...SO CUTE!!!

    I wish I lived closer I would totally help you with the cleaning part of your list (probably the only thing I could help with LOL)

    You know you are evil right ;p Super secret project that you can't mention.....tsk tsk you know how to tease you sure do LOL
