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.
