Wow. What a week so far. I know it’s only Thursday and I still have another day to get  here but all I want is for Saturday morning to get here. I need a break from the phones ringing, residents whining, having to walk around on egg shells so I don’t upset anyone. This weekend I don’t plan on doing me very much. I wanted to share my creative weekend to do list with you guys again. I just hope I’m able to scratch some of the list this weekend.

By the way, I got this idea from KaileenElise. I absolutely adore her blog and her! I forgot to credit her for this last time. I’m sorry! Those of you who haven’t checked her blog out yet. What are you waiting for?

  • Work on my tattoo design- I’ve narrowed it down to the pattern and design. Now debating on colors, location, & size
  • Put together another feel good playlist
  • Work on a few Project Cheer Up packages
  • Cook something new- I’m not sure what, but expect a post about whatever yummy goodness I pick!
  • Perfect the side braid

What do you plan to do this weekend? I’m really hoping that it’s nice outside so that I can maybe venture out for a walk at some point.


Ms. Kaileen Elise held a “Good Karma Swap” we were to get 4 gifts for our partner. a treat that calms, something that comforts, a bit of celebration and a piece that promotes creativity. The blogger that was assigned to me was Michele from You & Me & Lucy. I absolutely adore everything that I received in my package.
Create: Purple journal with several sticker sheets
Calm: TONS of tea. All of which are delicious. Especially the Blueberry Green Loose tea.
Celebrate: A set of Beautiful earrings from her Etsy shop SeachelleStudios I think I’m going to have to buy the matching bracelet when my refund check comes through.
Comfort: 2 -15 minute face masks.
She also sent me an “Uplifting” mix that I adore. I wish I knew the name of each song and artist was though so I could label them in Itunes. A chocolate bar that I would love to dig into, but I am practicing a little self control. I also received a precious purple little Buddha key chain. I love it all! I really hope my receiver enjoys my gift as much as I enjoyed this one.

Ashley from Ashalah Blogs held her 2nd annual “Be My Blog Valentine Swap” I participated in this last year as well, but I never received my gift. I was bummed, but this year made up for it times 100! Ms. Erika from Refreshingly Honest had me as her swap. She sent me delicious Vegan cookies. I have never had anything vegan, so I was a little worried, but I’ve eaten half the bag already. They are delicious! I also received 2 Endangered Species Chocolate Bars, which I have always wanted to try! I can’t wait to dig into those! 2 mini O-P-I nail polishes. And an entire box of Spring Jasmine tea that I can’t wait to try!

Coming home to these gifts in my mailbox was a perfect pick me up to this horrible week. I have struggled to hold back tears every second of every hour that I was awake this week. I came home from work had dinner and within hours was fast asleep in my bed before 7:00pm some nights. I see a few changed that are needed in my life as soon as possible. I can’t continue to live like this.

Thank you to the girls who really made a difference this week! One thing I lack in real life are true friendships and I love that I can turn to my bloggy girls when I need a lift.
