Mayhap it is rooted in my abundance of spirit in high school for spirit weeks, or college theme parties, or being a sorority recruitment professional...or mayhap it always existed, and those things just nurtured my love.
The love of which I speak is for themes. I like 'em all ways- subtle, not so subtle and over the top crazy...depending on the event of course.
In any case, I am announcing my first ever theme week on the blog. Yaaaaay.
I have had a few posts batting around in my head and in the draft section for a while, and they all seem to revolve around the idea of "Schedules". Now, schedules may seem all dry and boring and lame. And I won't lie, sometimes they are.
But, everyone I know always seems to be striving for more of a schedule, more organization, more...something.
Combine this with the conversation I had with my own dear husband last week that went something like this:
Me: "Hey babe, would you mind cleaning out the leftovers that you won't eat for lunch from the fridge so I know what to buy when I go grocery shopping tomorrow?"
::As I pick up the baby to head upstairs to change her diaper and get her in a clean diaper, mentally noting that I also need to bring down the dirty diapers to get them soaking so I can run the washer, and that I need to check on the state of my basil for my planned dinner recipe to succeed...::
Husband: ::Sigh:: "I guess, I mean...What do you DO all day?"
Now the sentiments behind this conversation will be discussed more next week...but ultimately it got me inspired for this upcoming event, which will include a post I have been wanting to do for a while now...a "Day in the Life" post. YAY! Because, sometimes people really don't realize what you do all day.
So, here it comes, a theme. GET.EXCITED.
I know I am.
