It's Fall Y'all

Friday, September 15, 2017

I often wish I had a southern accent and could say y'all anytime I want, but unfortunately that is not the case. I do feel though that I can get away with the fall y'all saying at this time of year which for me, fall starts on September 1st. I know technically there are still a few weeks, but in my mind, it is here!

Fall brings cooler weather , pumpkin everything, new decorations, blanket snuggling and my favorite...back to school! Y'all, I love my kids so much and the last few summers have been amazing. They are older and able to do all of the same things for the most part and getting up and going has been so much easier so we are out and having fun a lot. By mid August though, I am exhausted and have had zero time to myself. Also, the kids are exhausted from the traveling and the late nights that they start to fight and get on each others nerves. I get it too, I really do, they have spent a ton of time together, heck, I am sick of them too #sorrynotsorry so everything goes downhill. During this downhill spiral we have to get organized and ready for back to school. This means I have to catch up on the piles of laundry so they have clothes to wear, and we have to buy school supplies and clothes, rooms need to be cleaned and backpacks and lunch boxes get brought back out. And all this occurs while the kids are whining and fighting and telling me they are bored. I swear it works out well because instead of being sad after the amazing summer, that they are heading back to school, it makes me very excited! It is a celebration! I send them off and at the end of the school day I am happy to see them come home! I love you, fall!

Enough about that, now what does fall mean for me this year?? So much! First, I am so happy to be back here blogging and filling you all in on my plans. I have had a few people ask if I was planning to blog again when the kids went back to school and the answer, of course, is always yes! I really do love this, I don't know why it is always the first thing to go when things get busy, but that is the season of life I am in right now.

Second, I just took my test for the professional organizing course (which I rocked with a 100!) that I have been taking alongside my interior design course. I am looking to link the two together in a business that I am starting next month. Yes, next month! I am not quite finished with my interior design certificate course, but it focuses a lot on big projects and I am really looking to help out with room redesign and organization at this point, so I am going to get started with the experience that I have. I did a few projects over the summer and they were all a huge success. Stay tuned to see some before and afters as well as more details on my business...coming soon!

Third, as always on this blog, I am working on getting in shape. Yeah I know, you don't even want to hear it, but it's true. The summer wasn't good to me, or I should say I wasn't good to my body this summer. So, my plan for right now is adding more fruits and veggies and drinking more water. I have been doing some tracking on my fitness pal. I am also slowly doing the couch to 5K with a friend and get myself back into shape.

So what is my blog plan? Once a week at least and you will get either random thoughts, a health update, or organization and decorating ideas and pictures! I am so thankful to all of you that follow along and wonder where I am when I fall off the blogging wagon!

I hope everyone has a great week and I will be back next week when I choose one thing to dive a little deeper into and fill you in on the details! Till next time!
