Fill In the Blank Friday

Happy Friday!  This is definitely late in the day, but it has been one of those days!

  1. My Current Obsession is wine.  Ever since our vacation to Napa Valley I am obsessed with trying new wines.
  2. Fridays make me happy
  3. My greatest strength is organization.  I am really good at organizing stuff.  I also kinda love it, which makes me a total nerd. 
  4. Getting started is my greatest weakness.  Or at least one of them! I am definitely a bit of a slow started.  In the mornings it is usually a lack of coffee or sleep.  But I am not good at sitting down to start a project either, great at the planning phase, but not the now I have to start the plan part.
  5. My life is blessed.  I have the most amazing husband and wonderful friends and family. I could not feel more lucky to be exactly where I am! 
  6. In high school I was on the pom squad, had some great friends, and probably gave my mom more hell than she deserved.
  7. When I’m super tired I get cranky. 
Happy Friday!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!  It's pretty late in the day for me, but I have some great things I'm loving this week!

I'm loving... the return of my shows and the new fall shows!  I have really been looking forward to the new season of Glee, which was on last night.  It did not disappoint!

I also really enjoyed the new show on Fox called "The New Girl".  It stars Zoey Deschanel as a broken hearted, nerdy girl that becomes the new roommate of 3 buddies.  Check it out!

I'm loving... the weather getting cooler.  I love fall!  it is my favorite season.  What is not to love... football, all my favorite holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, and of course Christmas), and my birthday!

I'm loving... the trip Bond and I took to Denver.  Bond and I went to Denver Friday morning.  We hung out all day walking around the 16th street mall.  The weather was amazing so we grabbed a quick happy hour snack at an open air second story bar.  Then we met up with my sister-in-law to go to the Giants vs. Rockies game that evening.  After that we stumbled across an October Fest in down town Denver.  We had such a great time!

I'm loving... the workout I had a Barre 3.  On Sunday I went with two friends to a free class.  It was a crazy amazing workout.  I was so sore on Monday!  I could barely move.  

I'm loving... my wonderful Husband!  We had an amazing weekend together in Denver and back at home.

Fill in the Blank Friday

Let's get straight to the blanks on this wonderful Friday!

1. Somewhere someone is... sleeping, one of my favorite things!

2. I have a lot of people who  are my muse.  It depends on what the activity is.  Bond, my husband, is my muse when it comes to health, exercise, and good eating habits.  I have several authors that inspire me to write, several bloggers too!

3. It would suck if my favorite lotion was no more because, my skin would get dry and flaky.

4. The weather is my favorite thing about today.

5. Life is kind of like... organized chaos.

6. If I could have anything I wanted I would want... for all my friends and family to be safe and healthy.

7. A funny thing happened the other day... but I have slept since then and can't think of anything funny right now.

Have a great weekend!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

Happy Wednesday of this short week. Let's get right to linking up and seeing what everyone is loving today over at This Kind Of Love

I'm loving... My new wrapping paper container from the container store. It is part of my craft closet organization project, and it's going well...

I'm loving... That Oklahoma is finally having cooler weather! Highs in the 80's this week.

I'm loving... The earrings I got over the summer for OU game days. I found them at a local arts festival, but they are also available on line @ Stephanie's Selections.

They are made of very thin copper so they are super light weight. I gave some as gifts too! And if for some reason you are not an OU fan she makes a few other schools too.

I'm loving.... The Glee Project on Oxygen. I don't get this channel and the show is actually over already. But I watched the entire season online over the holiday weekend. It was great, if you like glee you will like this too!

I'm loving... My wonderful husband! We had a great time relaxing over the long weekend!

Arc Notebook System

Staples has a customizable notebook system called Arc.  I am not sure if it is new or just new to me, but I am loving it so far.  I am definitely a nerd when it comes to office supplies.  I get so excited about new notebooks and post-its!  

This notebook acts like a spiral notebook, but the rings are actually solid plastic with an edge to them that allows the special paper to spin.  

You can easily take out a page and then put it back in. 

It is available in 2 sizes and multiple styles.  I opted for the one with the harder cover and pockets on the inside cover.  This is much for functional for meetings and hearings.  But some of the other covers are really cute...

The notebook I bought comes with a set of lined paper. 

There are several types of paper to add or switch it out with, including planning and graph paper.  You can also accessorize it with tabs, pockets, dividers, or even a tab of post-it notes!  I got the pockets and the dividers.

Overall I think this customizable notebook is a great idea!  Obviously I am a big nerd about office supplies and organization.  What do you get nerdy about?

Closet Organization Project

I have been working on organizing my craft/gift wrapping closet.  I store all my crafts supplies, scrapbooking items, and gift wrapping in this closet, and it had gotten out of control.  So I invested in some organizational items.  I started with stacking drawers and worked from there.  The only thing I couldn't find in a store was storage for my wrapping paper.  So I went to The Container Store online and ordered one...
Yes I am that nerdy about organization... and yes I got so excited when it arrived...

So then I took it upstairs and added the handful of rolls of wrapping paper

Bella thought it was very interesting...

Then I picked out the perfect place in the closet.  It is really coming along.  Only a few more boxes to go through and put into new and fun organization!

The next step is is to see if these organizational cubes can work for me.  Maybe with some cut canvas baskets...

Please send me organizational tips!

Fill In the Blank Friday

Happy Friday before a long weekend!  And the start of OU football!!  Lets fill in some blanks with the little things we do.

1.   One thing that is completely superfluous, but that I could never give up is     nail polish, more specifically pedicures in winter.  It really doesn't matter if my toes look pretty no one can see them, but it makes me feel pretty.

2.    I really can't think of anything that    makes me feel awkward... There is stuff I don't like, such as speaking to a large group or "networking", but it doesn't make me feel awkward.

3.  I can't    remember what life was like    without,    my cell phone.  Isn't that sad!

4.    Cheese   is my favorite snack.  I love it anyway you want to serve it.

5.  Lately I've been     extremely tired.  I am blaming the crazy hot Oklahoma weather.

6.  If at first you don't succeed    your human.

7.  Fall is    my favorite season.   Because it has football, my birthday, and all my favorite holidays (Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the entire Christmas season!)

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
