An Update!

Things look a little different around here, don't they? Though I do love a good blog revamp, I hadn't planned on doing this one. But over the weekend my blog was getting hacked from somewhere in Germany. Much to my displeasure, those thousands of pageviews pouring in were NOT in fact just visiting to admire my writing ;) Once that was taken care of, none of my images/headers or anything was showing up correctly. And all those files? Forever lost on my Mac that has officially bit the dust. My beloved computer I bought right after I got out of college in 2008- yes, it is done. #RIP

So a quick facelift later, here we are! I haven't had the time to truly update everything, and I'm pretty sure my social media links are missing at the moment- but that'll come in time. I'm confident no sleep will be lost over my half-completed blog design. Now let's just focus on the fact that I DO have a brand new computer coming my way this week. After 9 years with the same one, I'm pretty stoked.

Weekend highlights below:

- Third Annual Christmas-in-July date night for us. Jared did all the planning this year since I'm on crutches. He totally shocked me by putting up our tree with lights on it, cooking a Christmas-type dinner and just going all out on the details. Love that man and how he still loves to be creative with our dates at home.
- New PJs from Carters. This was part of a 2-pack, originally listed for like $30 (ridiculous) but it was on clearance for $16.99, with an additional mark down of 25% off. And THEN I had a $10 reward to use so I ended up paying $2.92 for 2 sets of pajamas. I love a good deal!!

- If you didn't see me mention it, I'm now an Usborne Books & More consultant/distributor. I fell in love with the books when someone gifted some to T and it just made sense for me to sell them and share my love with everyone else! My new consultant kit came in the mail over the weekend and I'm thrilled with it! I got eight books in all age ranges/topics, plus things like brochures, catalogs, etc.

I've only been doing this for 2 weeks and I've already hosted 3 online parties- with 4 more on the books (pun totally intended!) If you are interested in hearing more about earning FREE BOOKS- please comment and let me know. My best friend Lacey just had a party on Facebook and is going to walk away with close to $100 worth of their books. I'm so not the sales type, but I'm telling y'all- you need to check it out.

Oh and a crutches update for those counting along with me. I'm 4 weeks down at this point which feels like a lot and a little at the same time. I'll see my doctor around the 8-week mark to decide if I can move onto physical therapy or if they want another 4 weeks on crutches after that. My sanity is waning many days but getting this first "chunk" of time done helps. A little ;)

Happy Monday, all!!

  5. Ugh stupid hackers. The new design is looking good though!!! I think it is so totally cute that you and Jared do Christmas in July and I kind of want to steal the idea and start doing something like that with Zoe next year since she is a December baby. Hooray for all the book parties! That is awesome!
