what i love wednesday {No. 128}

well i love a good idea and i think i have had an epiphany…

no, i’m not going to dye my armpit hair blue! i am not even going to go there… ever. well to each his own – her own, whatever.

i have decided that wednesdays are national mother’s day off.

at least for me anyway.

as a mother of three busy kids who are very active and involved in sports and a husband who travels for work i am finding myself busy 7 days a week with no time to catch my breath. i have two pre-driving teens in two different high schools and a kindergartener at another school – i am behind the wheel about four hours every day including weekends! then at home i am scrambling to “get it all done” which, let’s be honest moms, it never is is it?!! it is never, ever all done, there is always something. so i have declared wednesday my day off.

i will have to hustle a little more on the other days, but i think knowing that that carrot is waiting for me will give me more motivation to hustle. i will still make breakfast, lunch, and dinner, i will still drive my four hours to get everyone everywhere, but between school drop off and pick up i will relax, catch my breath, make time for reading, journaling, praying, riding my bike, dawdling, spending time with friends, wandering… i will stop to smell the roses for goodness sakes! all the things we want to do, but never have the time. when are we going to have the time? we have to make the time. i do better with a plan and structure – so here it is. easy, right? december – the busiest month of them all. i have to start now or i never will and i have a lot done already for Christmas, so i’m going to take the plunge.

i think it will be better for my mental health, my physical wellbeing, and my creativity!

do you have a designated day off? will you join me? is it possible? what do you think?
if you’re not ready i will let you know if it was the worst idea
ever in the history of smart women or not ;)
it will be another reason to love wednesdays!

i can’t wait to see what you’re loving!

i love that Creative Memories is back!

creative memories

check it out here

i have scrapbooked for 15 years and i can tell you there are no better albums or pages than the ones Creative Memories is famous for. i am so thrilled to use their unbeatable products once again. i was absolutely beside myself the past 10 months, i had used all my albums and pages and went to try new brands. i scoured the stores and internet and nothing, nothing compared. i bought the best album i was willing to settle for and i was so disappointed! i was practically crying at our scrapbook retreat back in May. we were all wondering, “what are we going to do?” “they have to come back.” not only have i been scrapbooking for 15 years, i have also been scrapbooking with a large wonderful group of serious scrapbooking gals. they were as devastated as i was when we were out of albums and other Creative Memories supplies. they had no solutions either.

i quickly discovered Creative Memories makes the only albums that lay flat AND the middle of the pages is close together, almost touching. i love this because i am always doing two page layouts. Creative Memories is made in the USA and is also the only company that backs their albums with a 100% lifetime guarantee. and i never did find a replacement adhesive that worked for me – i love their tape runner.

creative memories is back!

if you’re interested in selling their products or if you plan to make a lot of purchases. sign up as an advisor (it’s their hybrid version of a consultant). get huge discounts + commission! the more you buy or sell the more you save and the discount keeps accumulating for 12 months! also advisors in your group accumulate with you! so you can build a lot of sales (and discounts + commission) very quickly and easily! i can just imagine my friends and i buying few things and over a year it would easily be $2600+ retail which would give all of us a 30% discount and a 6% commission!

yep, i really love creative memories!

i can’t wait to see what you’re loving today!

#redballoonsforryan

i still can’t believe it.
i keep thinking it isn’t real.
how can it be?

red balloons for ryan

this sweet young boy was struck by a truck last friday. i know we are all in shock.

all day i sat and cried my eyes out and i put myself in Jacqui’s shoes. what could she be going through? what would i do?

after a day like that i don’t just turn a 180 and smack a smile on my face and act like everything is peachy.

i am distraught.

but this isn’t good either. now i am doing my family a disservice. my family doesn’t have to lose their mother to commiseration and wallowing in empathy for another family we faintly knew. of course i held all my children closer and listened to them better and paid them constant attention, but this isn’t about me. my intense feelings for this sad tragedy should move me into action. action that helps. action that gives. action that is still there for my family. i am still a wife and a mother and just because depression is a slippery slope for those who have dwelled there doesn’t mean i allow myself to fall back in.

evil wants us to fall, God wants us to rise above and take action.

here’s how we can help. if you live nearby sign up to bring meals, help with the house, bring whatever it is they need. if you do not live nearby send money, prayers, and cards.

here are some ways to send money in Ryan’s name:

what this what i love wednesday is:
i love this family and i love how we are all going to move to action and help.

you can read the tragic story of what happened to sweet Ryan, here on Alissa’s blog.
