All Business

It's only Tuesday and I am so over work. On most days my job is fun. I love writing, blogging, coming up with campaign strategies, and searching for content for my clients' social media networks. But this week has been spent playing catch up due to my lack of bookkeeping effort. I was so behind on my Quickbooks entries I had to go back to March 2012. NOT good. The good news is I should have it finished up by tomorrow, and I will NEVER get that behind again!

The shopfast is still going well, and our March focus is India. I am trying to decide what to purchase for from MATA Traders. It's so hard to make a decision when you are only purchasing one item a month,  but it makes it ten times more fun than a usual purchase.

In other news, I got my hair trimmed today and I can SEE again! :)

Shirt With a Purpose!

Shirt: Sevenly

I couldn't wait to wear my purchase for the month! The purchase of this shirt helped fund an undercover rescue mission to save the lives of girls who have been kidnapped, coerced or sold into prostitution. This is exactly the mission of The 12X12 Project this month.

I have to say, it was so fun to get something in the mail. Pre-12x12 Project,  I was an online shopper extraordinaire. I loved seeing the UPS or FedEx box on my doorstep just as much as what I found on the inside. New stuff was a thrill for me and I actually felt better if I was wearing something new. I have learned to tame that crazy lady a wee bit now, and I am really grateful for the perspective change.

Technically, today should be awesome and awkward Thursday, but it's been a while since I have added to my gift list, and I have been keeping track! :)

1000 Gifts
112. Multicolored ocean water
113. Sand in everything
114. Seagulls
115. Boogie Boards
116. Waves
117. The smell of sunscreen on little hands
118. Warm sun on wet skin
119. My kindergarteners face when she spots me in the carline.
120. When my work promotes good.

Fun and Fabulous Friday!

I am so thankful it's Friday! This week has been absolutely nuts playing catch up from my Vegas trip. I am not complaining, as I am blessed to have some great projects going on right now, but I could sure use some down time.  My children's schedules alone are enough to keep me hopping. The plan is to grill steaks at home tonight, and visit with friends. The older I get, the more I appreciate evenings in!

The shopfast is going strong, and I am happy to report that my Banana Republic, Nordstrom, and Neiman Marcus cards are all paid off! We are having a card cutting party at church Sunday. I am a little nervous about saying goodbye to my Nordstrom notes, but I know myself.....and the card has to go. God has been so good to us, I can't afford not to be obedient on this. Old habits will come creeping for sure, and I need to be ready! Anyway, thank you all for your encouragement through this year, it helps keep me going! XO

Happy Valentine's Day!

Much like the weather here in Florida, my outfit today does not make much sense. One day sunny in shorts, the next cool and rainy. I mean...who wears rain boots with snakeskin print skinnies anyway? Oh yeah, I do. Despite the rain, I am having a lovely Valentine's Day with my family. I have received some beautiful artwork from my children, along with cards and chocolates.

There was one special gift from eShakti too. I have been given the choice of one item from their new spring line, and I have narrowed it down to my top three favorites, but I need help! Would you please vote on your favorite to help me decide? I am on a yearlong shopfast, so I don't take this decision lightly :)  If you would be so kind as to visit my facebook page and vote for your favorite, I would greatly appreciate it!! Happy Day of LOVE! XO
