Busy. Busy. Busy.

Is it just me or as the Holidays approach does time start moving faster and faster? There's a part of me that feels like I just posted about my Pumpkin Patch adventure yesterday. But no, it's been a week and a half. It's not that there has been a lack of things going on around these parts that I haven't had anything to write. Quite the opposite.

I should be in bed trying to get some sleep, but with feeling overwhelmed {to say the least} about my upcoming week, I need to get my tasks written down. So I stay on track!

I started working this week. Yes working. No not just watching kids and doing craft shows but actual scheduled shifts at a new job. I haven't had a 'job' in two and a half years so it's been weird wrapping my head around the concept.

And of course said new job started this week. A busy week. Real busy. The last two days have seemed like a blur. Watching the kids all day while trying to get some crafting done for Oh Sweet Sadie and trying to get caught up around the house with cleaning and laundry before the festivities of the weekend hit. Then as soon as my husband got home it was off to work. Then grocery shopping and crafting last night after work and SOA and girl time tonight with my darling Whitney.

If I seem spacey over the next couple days forgive me. This is what awaits me:

Wednesday: Target & Harmons & Post Office {to mail off some Etsy orders}before heading to work at 10:00am. Then off to Activity Days straight from work until 5:30. Then heading up to the Oh Sweet Sadie Craft show and to Tai Pan.

Thursday: Finish sewing crafts for the party. Laundry. Making banners for said party.  {Hopefully the kids will cooperate as I try to craft and entertain them all day} Grocery shopping for party. Then Breaking Dawn 2 at 10:30.

Friday: Baking and cooking for the parties. Deep cleaning for company coming over. Finishing touches on party plans.

Saturday: Birthday Bash. Set up and decorating. Kids party from 4-7. Scott's party from 7-midnight.

Sunday: relax

Monday: ELEVEN 19!!! The actual birthday of all of my loves. An eventful family day!

Tuesday: Laundry and packing. Shopping for Thanksgiving. Work.

Wednesday: Work & then heading to Brian Head straight from work until Sunday.

Some of you may think that this isn't too much. But with 2 toddlers wanting to play/wrestle/dance/cook/draw every minute of the day, it's hard to squeeze everything in.

That being said I could not be more excited for the upcoming week. It's THE BIRTHDAY! Then heading to spend 5 days with my family in Brian Head for Thanksgiving. Can't Wait.

How do you juggle all the holiday festivities? Are you as overwhelmed as I am?


  1. Whew wee! You do sound busy! Hope you get some good nights sleep in there some where! Have fun!

  2. Holy crap...and I here I am asking you to make me a Holiday banner!! Please, no pressure on that one! Also - I just realized your party is the same day as the Cuthbert Thanksgiving dinner, so I wiln't be able to attend. So sorry. :( Good luck keeping up with your crazy schedule! And have so much fun in Brian Head for Thanksgiving.

    PS. Where are you working, may I ask?

  3. I think I need a nap after reading that.
