what i’ve been doing this week instead of blogging.

Puppy sitting. My friend Lisa is out of town for the weekend, and we’ve had her adorable baby Molly since Wednesday. She’s all kinds of awesome. It’s hard to sit down with the ol’ Macbook when she wants to play and cuddle in your lap. Plus I’m busy giving Doak extra loves so he knows he’s still his momma’s favorite. It’s a tough job, but someone’s gotta do it.

Setting up a new business. You know, no big deal. Our pretty new displays are arriving and new consigner appointments are on the books, but there’s still so much to do!

Getting back in the swing of things at the flower shop. Summer is a slow season in the flower business. When the new school year starts, things really start to pick up — quickly. This means a lot of re-stocking, revving up the staff, and brushing up on my design skills. All while working on the aforementioned new business.

Discovering some amazing new [to me] blogs. Like The Wiegands (beautiful and inspirational with a focus on family, faith, and love), Words of Williams (Kelsey’s other blog that’s chock-full of great perspective on marriage and finances), and cotton&curls (one of the best DIY/refashioning blogs I’ve come across yet).

Trying to control my shopping urges. Between back-to-school sales, tax-free weekends, and more direct mail special offers and gorgeous fall look books than I can handle, I’m a little overwhelmed by all of the things I think I “need” for the new season.

Reconnecting in the real-world. As in, lots of girls nights, homemade dinners with Husband, and morning and evening walks with Doak while listening to new audiobooks on my iPod.

    Waaaahhhh you just made me miss my pup (who is being dog-sat while we’re in hurricane-land)!
    Congrats on the new business!

    busy week! I too am feeling overwhelmed by all I “need” for the season. Hope you have a good rest of your weekend.

    It sounds like you’ve had a great, refreshing week. And thank you so much for the link love!

    Just think of how tempting it will be to shop your own consignment store! Will this be a profitable venture? BTW…I love the Winegard’s blog. What a precious family. Really enjoying that blog.

      Oh Aimee, I find myself asking that question often… [reciting self-control mantra]

    I think it is so awesome that you are opening a consignment business. That is something I would love to do one day. And your house guest is so stinkin’ adorable.

    Oh. My. Gosh. I just died a little! Molly is the cutest puppy ever. I insist that all your future posts must include dog videos! :)

    I like to start every season with new audiobooks too (it’s gotta be cheaper than buying new clothes, right?) My husband and I just started The Hunger Games in preparation for the movie that comes out next year. Next, I’ll be listening to The Magician King since I liked The Magicians so much. Let us know what you’re reading too!

    Have a great weekend.
