Been There…Getting Ready to Do That

The Party People

Last week my sister had a Blog Party!  It was only my second one, ever.  I managed to visitmeatzoo2 every blogger that linked up with her party {as of earlier today}…that’s right, I visited over 200 blogs in the last week! I decided to do that for me – for fun.  I’m a people-watcher.  I just think God was marvelously creative in creating US!  I love learning about people’s different talents and personalities.  Here’s a brief summary of the chums who linked up with Lynnette:

  • They were YOUNG!  It was amazing how many teen & pre-teen bloggers are out there ready to share with the world, thinking deep thoughts, learning & expressing themselves.
  • My sister’s chums are the Dr. Pepper & Coffee drinkingest, chocolate-cheese-and-carb eatingest, wanna-be-skydivingest, snake-scarediest ladies around!!  Ha ha…it was fun reading answers to the party questions.  These were some of the similarities I noticed.
  • The girls who read Lynnette’s blog {and those who read their blogs} are largely aspiring authoresses and photographers…makes sense {and I don’t exactly fit that mold}.
  • People {and specifically WOMEN, young and young-at-heart} are just AWESOME…The End.

Getting Organized – Again!

Feeling like a broken record {do people still say that in this digital music age?} with this one.  I dealt with so many food allergy episodes and a mystery  injury/weirdness in my shoulder this  winter that maaaaannnnyyy things are cluttered and awry.  So, I am starting to organize:


  • This blog.  I will never be a “niche” blogger…too many varied passions & interests.  I’ve even avoided tagging my posts lately because I need to decide just how I’m going to set it up…SOOO, I believe some tabbed pages are a-coming.  It will be easier to find specific topics!
  • My closet.  Doing my best to participate in Project:Simplify at {see button in my sidebar}.  Words cannot express the need for this right now…
  • My health.  I’ve proceeded with taking my vitamins {pronounce vitt-a-mins or mighty-vighties around here} again, have an appointment with ortho surgeon to look at this shoulder on Thursday so we can figure out how I can start exercising again & get in shape!  I’m one of those weird people that likes to exercise {if I can get enough sleep & just get to it}
  • My life.  I think a naturally organized person living in chaos gets even more stressed out.  My mind is quieter when my life is uncluttered…even if it gets busy.  I think spring is a good time to get this accomplished.

What are you organizing?

Have a Beautiful Day {especially if it’s Crazy}!

What a long process this has been for my sweet girl!I feel like organizing and cleaning too…but haven't found the energy quite yet. Maybe when it starts to warm up a bit.Have a blessed day.TTYLMomma


  3. I love organizing! 😀 But papers and random junk still piles up all over every flat surface. Once every week or two, I go on a whirlwind tour of organizing my counters and desk. 😀 I loved your assessment of the blog party! I am fairly young as well (25) but I am amazed and inspired by how many teens are writing beautifully for Jesus and taking amazing photos. I loved meeting you–I heart your blog. I'm definitely following.


  4. Wow 200?!? You've been busy! What a good synopsis. I agree, it's fun to people watch! And for the record, even though I'm young- ish, I don't drink coffee nor do I aspire to be anything but a devoted wife and mom. : ) I'm okay with that… Bc it's really the greatest calling in life! I love to organize, it just takes motivation to get that love into action.
