This week’s themes: Doing, Appreciating, Designing, Humming, Expecting

 

I’m getting so good at posting Sunday Lately on days that aren’t Sunday. Better late than never, right!?

Doing

Awkward: I guess there really isn’t anything awkward I’m doing. The only thing I can think of is that awkwardness that comes from trying to code your own site when you really don’t know what you’re doing. Marianne at DYOB is the best resource for DIY blog design.

Awesome: I have been working on blog posts for AngelicaRoss.co (hopefully launching the blog next week but we’ll see!) and it feels good to be digging in to be a social media resource again. I haven’t written about that on here in a while.

Appreciating

Awkward: Referrals for financial planning help. I so wish I didn’t have to think about it. I am not a financial planner nor do I know a think about IRAs, mutual funds, etc, so I am blindly following whatever this guy tells me to.

Awesome: It’s weird to say I appreciate the air conditioning, but I do. I really try not to turn it on (I made it through last summer without turning it on until my mother visited in September and broke the streak) but this week has been so swampy at night that I have to run it or I wake up feeling sick. Sexy, huh?

Designing

Awkward: All the new stuff I need for a business. I feel like whenever I have cards printed up, something changes (my domain name, my email address, something) so it’s like…why did I bother?

Awesome: I’m thisclose to nailing a new color scheme and layout. Send the good vibes, guys!

Humming

Awkward: Everything on the radio sucks. Is it just me? Ugh. I’ve been listening to my old iPod in the car because I’m just so sick of the over-played junk that’s forced upon us from broadcast stations.

Awesome: I’ve gotten some classics stuck in my head recently. I had a playlist of ghetto rap songs that my best friend and I used to blast from my piece of crap Cavalier while driving around a really nice area so I’ve been humming some Trick Daddy and T.I. That should probably go in the awkward category, huh?

Expecting

Awkward: My mom will be in town this coming weekend and she wanted me to go down to Virginia to see her the following weekend, so I’ll be expecting a lot of family time. Which isn’t awkward per se, but it does take a bit of self-control not to be the total opinionated pirate that I am and when I don’t exercise that constraint…it can be a little awkward.

Awesome: Although to my mother’s credit, she usually understands when I’m an opinionated pirate so that’s awesome.

Enter at your own whisk punny tea towel. So cute!

Last time she was here, I saw this. I love me some puns and kitchen puns are even better!

Save

Because Coffee by Thread & Grain

If you haven’t figured it out by now, I’m fueled by coffee and not much else (that’s a lie..I’m a garbage disposal. I haven’t met much I don’t like). But for the sake of this post, let’s just say that I’m fueled by coffee. As a small business owner, you kind of have to be. Most of my good ideas get born because of beer but are carried out…wait for it…because coffee.

“Angelica, how did you manage to do that?” “Because coffee.”

“When did you find time to sort through these?” “I don’t know, I just did.. Because coffee.”

You see, I owe a lot to coffee.

Thread and Grain makes the cutest shirts! Love this Because Coffee tee!

So when Katy over at Thread & Grain wanted to have other people model her shirts for her website, I had to jump on this Because Coffee tee (in gray, of course). If you’re looking for accessories to match, there’s a clutch and necklace that you need. To borrow a phrase from a friend: you didn’t ask me, but you’re welcome.

(I wore my necklace to a coffee shop on Sunday. I sat there writing this post, drinking coffee, denouncing decaf..it was awesome.)

Because Coffee t-shirt by Thread & Grain. So cute and perfect for anyone who needs coffee to function!

Want to see other things that Katy’s made? Well, all bloggers need this shirt and Katy has a whole section on her site just for makers. If you don’t find something you love, you’re doing it wrong.

What’s your go-to source for inspiration?

** Katy offered a discount to anyone who signed up to be a brand rep; I took advantage of that discount to purchase this shirt. I absolutely love her style and would have bought it regardless and I’m thrilled to have such a creative and giving friend!

This week’s themes: Planning, Loving, Reading, Wishing, Feeling

 

Planning

Awkward: I thought my garden plan was solid, but something keeps eating the leaves off of certain plants. My eggplant was eaten and now it’s coming back. My broccoli and Brussels sprouts are all gone and part of an heirloom tomato is gone too. Stupid whatever is eating them.

Awesome: I’m planning my last day at work on Tuesday. That’s pretty awesome. I’ll be focusing full time on my content management and copywriting services. Yay!

Loving

Awkward: I’m loving the birds that have been roosting on my windowsills. Not. My windows are split down the center and crank outward, so these birds are getting in enough to sit themselves down, then when I try to get them off the ledge, they can’t get themselves out. Ugh!

Awesome: I’ve been re-watching The Office, spending time organizing my house, and trying to keep up with my Happy Planner decorating. And it’s been awesome.

Reading

Awkward: I haven’t read anything since I had time off for my tonsillectomy.

Awesome: When I was off for my tonsillectomy, I read four books in five or six days: Yes Please, The Amateur’s Guide to the Pursuit of Happiness, Choose Yourself, and Orange is the New Black.

Great books you need to read this summer!

Wishing

Awkward: I can’t say I’ve been wishing for anything awkward recently.

Awesome: I can’t wait for Wednesday to get here. It’s the beginning of something new and I can’t wait.

Feeling

Awkward: I haven’t really done much exercise since my tonsillectomy unless you count endless hours of pulling weeds and I’m starting to feel meh. I need to get back into it big time.

Awesome: I kept the air conditioning on yesterday and it felt pretty damn good. I’ve been trying to keep costs low so I haven’t been running it.  #cheap

Wear to Where: Summer Party

We’ve made it to the last day of Wear to Where! It’s appropriate to that outfits we’re styling and sewing today are party clothes. We also figured that since it’s Memorial Day weekend and it’s the unofficial start of summer, we’d show off the best picnic and summer party outfits.

Courtney, Cat, Kimi, and Erin all look wonderfully festival and summer party ready.

Wear to Where: What you can make to wear to a summer party that'll have to looking hot but saying cool!

Today is the last day of Wear to Where: Spring Edition. Catch up with everyone on the tour this for more outfit inspiration!

Wear to Where: Sports!

Today’s Wear to Where is showing off your best sports attire. Summer is the time for baseball and the most important part of baseball is tailgating in the parking lot before the game.

My sporting attire consists of a shirt that has 412 splashed across it (as modeled so awkwardly here) so I’d have to say that these lovely ladies are much more imaginative and stylish than I am when representing their favorite team. Check out Jessica, Ronda, Kat, and Nicole root for the home team.

Summer is the time for baseball and hanging out in parking lots shotgunning beer beforehand. Today's Wear to Where shows off the best sports attire.

Tomorrow is the last day of Wear to Where: Spring Edition. Catch up with everyone on the tour for more outfit inspiration!
