My Forecast: Morning Showers

(ShowerScape from Flickr)

I really do my best planning & thinking in the shower. Here’s what was on my mind this morning…

  • Morning prayer, best way to start the day
  • Check list of all Halloween costume ensemble for little man (he has decided to switch from Spiderman, to The Hulk and finally to a vampire because that’s what his cousin is going to be). I’ve been scrambling all week to find items to make a cool vampire without the cheese factor.
  • Mental review of all current clean, ironed and not still packed up for the winter clothes to put together today’s outfit. Final decision, grey cashmere shell and sweater, Gap khakis and black Danskos. I love being able to dress comfy every day at work.
  • Review of weekend schedule to ensure I remember where to be when: Halloween get together at our house Friday night, Trick-or-Treating on Club Blvd. (they are expecting 600 kids), soccer game, off to the parents, grandmother’s 80th birthday celebration, tickets on the glass to the Carolina Hurricane’s game.

Time’s up, little man is knocking on the shower door telling me he’s beat me getting dressed. I gotta reward that with a big wet hug!


  1. i'm the same way. all of my best thoughts happen in the shower or while i'm drying my hair.

  2. I am the same way too.

    You have busy weekend. I am jealous I love watching hockey on the glass!

  3. That’s great..! Excited to see your Gap khakis and black Danskos.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
