I’m so bummed that this summer is ripping by at lightning fast speeds. I see people posting things about “fall fashion preview” and “back to school”, and I’m thinking, “Crap! There’s so much more I want to do this summer!” Despite my make-every-second-count anxiety, this week was a pretty good one overall. My favorite part of every week is pushing pause on Friday mornings to write this list of everything I’m grateful for. Seriously people, give it a try. It’s life changing, and I’m not just exaggerating for once.
1. Had a great meeting with Alex this week to discuss future video projects not only for Betsylife but also for Seasonal Potluck! The Hubs and my friends have always been incredibly supportive of me, but in our group, I’m the creative one. It’s an entirely different dynamic to interact with other creative people. I love the exchange of ideas, and I need people like Alex to either help me streamline my wild thought process, or tell me I’m being ridiculous. Thanks for your insights this week Alex! Plus, the meeting involved beer and peanut butter cake. That’s always a Great thing.
2. The Hubs and I have been making a concerted effort to spend more “quality time” together lately. This week we did a Great job which included such activities as dog hugging, working out, and even an early breakfast at a restaurant one morning. It’s so easy for life to get in the way of the relationships with those you care about most. I think its ok to manually schedule every aspect of your life when you’re as busy as we are. Val and I have dinner together every Monday night at 6. Now the Hubs and I are penciling in our “quality time” too. Whatever it takes right?
3. I came into work on Thursday only to be greeted by 3 giant bags of Pop Art Popcorn on my desk. My friend Katie clearly knows me and my obsession with popcorn well, and let me tell you, this gift was insanely amazing. Thus far my personal favorite is surprisingly rosemary truffle, and The Hubs loved the white cheddar jalapeño. I’m sure all 3 bags will be gone by the end of the weekend.
4. I’m in a facebook group with a bunch of other women bloggers (none of whom I’ve ever met in person). These gals not only give great writing/blogging advice, but they make me laugh my ass off on a regular basis. This week was no exception. I’m very grateful for the internet and blogging, that has introduced me to people who I never would have had the opportunity to meet otherwise. Especially these ladies who have their minds in the gutter in the best possible way.
That’s my Great List for this week! I’ve got an AWESOME Friday planned which involves baking, working out, and watching Project Runway. Ahhhhh the little things in life……… What’s Great in your life this week? Leave a comment below and let me know!
