Five on Friday

Not off to as productive year as I had thought.
Honestly I've been a bit lazy after 10am.
Apparently I'm quite the morning person.

My mind has been wandering a lot this week.
For example...

first.
I really want an new iphone cover.
I've been using a Lily Pulitzer cover and frankly it's just to cold to have a spring/summer phone cover.
Is it bad that I don't even want to use in public because it's so out of season?

second.
Спољни дуг је нарастао на више од 27 милијарди евра и његово стварно учешће у БДП је око 97 одсто, а не званичних 86 одсто - http://www.srbijadanas.net/spoljni-dug-je-narastao-na-vise-od-27-milijardi-evra-i-njegovo-stvarno-ucesce-u-bdp-je-oko-97-odsto-a-ne-zvanicnih-86-odsto/
I waited until January 1st to order my 2015 planner.
I check my order status at least twice a day.
Very impatiently waiting on it to ship.

third.
I have photos on my 'big camera' from November that I have yet to download.
Note: excellent Saturday morning project.

four.
I'm loving my new Mascara my sister got me for Christmas.
Dior 'Diorshow' Mascara available at #Nordstrom This really is my fav when it comes to mascaras, my go to when I need some length and definition and I am just loving how long it lasts too.
Only flaw very difficult to get off.
I've tried several make-up removing wipes and eye remover and still wake up with some black under the eyes.  Just order the Rodan and Field Redefine Eye Cloths, hoping those will do the trick.
Stay tuned.

five.
[iPhone 5 Wallpaper] Recharge #seanwesmondays
I'm excited to have a Saturday with NO plans.
Sad that after only my first full week at work I need a recharge.

Cheers to a restful and productive weekend!

No More or Less

Trying to make a New Years Resolution
without using 'more' or 'less' is quite difficult.

I don't want to try and do too much or eliminate anything from my normal routine.

Elementary School Choir's Cover Of Pharrell's 'Happy' Will Make Your Whole Week Better

My New Year will be more about
Choose happy.
finding and enjoying the moments of joy, fun and happiness in everyday life
not to take anything for granted
to remember how blessed we are each day

Live Now

and as my sister has said...to be kinder to each other and ourselves.

Reading this made me think of Tobias in Divergent. When he told Tris about his tattoos.....

Adios 2014

Goodbye
Adios
See ya later 2014

I'm not too sad to see the end of 2014.
It was a great year with some great times and some not so great moments.

I am looking forward to this new year {on January 5th}.
I have some big plans for myself in all aspects of life and hopefully a little catching up included.
And hope that 2015 will truly be a new beginning in our little bungalow.

So Cheers and Happy New Year!

Here's my first favorite picture of 2015!

Fall is Here Randoms

Wistfully Country perfect to have a stack of these for Christmas time napping with a house full of family....

Perhaps I should say winter.
It was a bone chilling 18 this am.
My sister's wedding, that my mama and I are planning,
is finalllllly here this coming Saturday.
I'm so excited for it finally come.
I'm very excited but also excited that once it has over I can get back to our routine.

The Mr. started a new job last month!
{Angels Are Singing}
The new job is all positives
minus a long commute.
He is off weekends and has a more regular people schedule.
So happy to have my Mr. back!

Our Parker is 1 year and 3 weeks.
{gasp}
I can not believe how much has happened the last 13 months.
Our world has forever changed.

Trim Your Christmas Tree Like a Pro : Decorating : HGTV

I started listening to Christmas music this week.
I am ready to take down fall and enjoy the Christmas magic.
Yes, last year was Parker's 1st Christmas
but I feel like this year will really be #1.

I'm somewhat stumped for Christmas gifts for a 1 year old.
I would love to get a kitchen or the little red car but....
We need to move ASAP and do not have a ton NO storage
So what do you get a 1 year?

Overwhelmed

My Busy Mom Devotional couldn't have come at a better time.
The Busy Mom's Devotional: Ten Minutes a Week to a Life of Devotion by Lisa T. Bergren. $10.46. 224 pages. Publisher: WaterBrook Press (June 16, 2010). Author: Lisa T. Bergren

It must be that time of the month.
Work is crazy, P has just become mobile, eating real food,
final touches on sister's wedding in full swing.

I have not adjusted to this new lifestyle
with a mobile baby that eats 3 real meals a day.
Being a working mama is NO joke.
Sometime I just need a little reminder at the end of the day that we are very blessed!
