But it's What's Up Wednesday and I told ya'll I was getting back on the wagon, so let's move on shall we? Here's the deal ... I link up with these lovely ladies on the last Wednesday of every month, and we check in and cover these topics:
What we're eating this week ... well based on what I just told you, we haven't eaten much of anything. I should probably make that more of a priority.
What I'm loving ... The new look of my bloggy blog. I was really bored with the old gold text and truth be told I never really was 100% in love with the old look anyways. It was meant to be a short placeholder to simply get the "in the bluegrass" updated to "in music city" and I kept telling myself I'd create something later that I loved, but just never got around to doing so. So, naturally while I have 400 things on my plate - this current moment seems like the best time to go ahead and accomplish that.
I don't know if having a little girl has anything to do with it, but for some reason I'm really loving floral accents right now. Especially ones that are in my favorite colors. So, when I saw this background on vector images I thought it should be my new look for a while.
Teal/Blue is my all time favorite color. It was seen at my wedding and is used in nearly every room in my house. It's been my M.O. since I was a tween on aim: BlueDaisy31 was my jam and I think it's so deep rooted inside of me that now every time I see the color mixed with something I currently love I have to have it. So, here it is ...
Again, as a reference here's the BlueDaisy archives of all the looks I've had throughout the years. It's fun to look back and see what in the world I was thinking way back when. But the current look is where I am in life right now. A little bit girly (Lainey), mixed with a lot of crazy (Bennett), trying to pull it all together and make it make sense (Life).
It was also time to update my "hello I'm Katie Marie" badge. I needed to either include Lainey or drop the kiddos names and just bring it more true to what the blog has really come to be about (my kids). The old badge:
The updated badge (I desperately need new professional head shots. This is my Marketing Director shot from forever ago. I'll go ahead and add that to my to-do list, along with updating that website I just sent you to. Lots of changes to be made!):
What we've been up to ... We've actually been visiting my parents in the Bahamas! I've been working to get those posts together and hope to have the recaps for you ASAP.
What I'm dreading ...still dreading swim suit season. Which means I constantly dread the work out (or lack there of). Womp.
"could be seen as an adorable photograph of two siblings growing up together or an ominous harbinger of things to come."
What I'm listening to ... The DVR ... currently screening last week's Scandal.
What I'm doing this weekend ... This weekend we're looking forward to Bennett's soccer class Saturday and catching up after vacay. We've entertained the idea of potty training, but I'm not sure I have the patience for that at the moment.
What I'm looking forward to next month ... St. Patty's Day! I always love dressing up in ridiculous green colors and playing Irish.
