Sunday Coffee & the Paper


Since I work full-time outside the home (isn’t that the politically correct term these days?), I tend to have more time on the weekend to do things most weekdays don’t afford.  One of my favorite bloggers, Franish, does a Top Three on Sunday where she links to topics, other bloggers, sales, etc.  I thought I’d put my own spin on it each Sunday.  One of my favorite things to do, pre-children of course, is to read the Sunday paper while drinking my coffee.  Grab a cup of coffee, and let’s try this out.

career.  I recently was given the opportunity to work a new project at work.  I’m energized and excited about this one.  As with most things, doing the same thing too long can get you in a rut.  A little change in focus is nice.

home decor.  My One Room Challenge project is coming along nicely.  We’ve been painting, installing the bead board and shelves, and searching for a light.  I’m converting a can light into a hanging pendant.  I just haven’t found the right one in stock.  Help!

personal style.  Yesterday we had family photos done.  Every year I nearly pull my hair out over it.  Getting 5 people to look nice, smile normally, and keep their eyes open is no small feat.  We coordinated navy and mustard for our fall look.  Every time I wear this JCrew Factory cardigan I get compliments so I went with it.  I’m loving mustard colors for fall.

food.  Skinnytaste’s crockpot white bean pumpkin chili is on the menu tonight.  I find myself drawn to easy recipes as of late especially because of the next topic (read: overwhelmed).

random.  Perhaps it’s because I’m in the trenches of motherhood and my career that this article resonated with me, but I can’t get it out of my mind.  The concept of a midlife crisis for women opened my eyes to the struggle my peers and I face daily.  We’ve just never given it a label or name.  How do we survive the downslope of the U-curve?  Talking more openly about it is an important first step.
