This week was brought to you by: Moments

In the past 7 days I have packed in the excitement, stress, passion, and energy that I normally am able to eek out of a full 30 days. It has been a big week. Filled with so many moments.

On Sunday, I shared 3 fun baby shower games that were played at my sister-in-law’s baby shower the previous day. I wasn’t able to go to the shower, so I sent up these baby shower games, along with a baby shower wreath for the party.

I needed to get some serious yard work done… so I made a plan for what we needed, and then took a trip to the Home Depot with Little Moore. There is some fun video of LM that you’ll want to check out!

On Wednesday, I hosted a fun party at my house for some of my local blog friends to come over and talk about diapers. You’ll be hearing more about that soon… but you may have already seen pictures of the party on Instagram.

After the party wrapped, I loaded up the car, and headed on the nearly 6-hour drive to Salt Lake City to pick up Carissa from Creative Green Living from the airport, and then drove to SNAP Conference, where I am now.  It has been an amazing few days. I presented to a packed room of bloggers on how to use Google+, and there were more glitches and issues in getting that presentation to happen than I can share in this post… but I’d like to thank my years in Toastmasters, and the sense of humor that I inherited from my parents for getting me through that presentation in style. I think the audience even learned a little!

Leaving my boys for so many days hasn’t been easy, and I’m glad I had the Crystal Pendant Necklace I shared earlier this week along. It has been nice to have a little bit of “home” here with me.

I was also able to accomplish one of my goals this week… I launched a fun new site dedicated to obscure holidays… so if you want to find a fun way to celebrate Jellybean day or Penguin day… check out Obscure Holiday Crafts for some inspiration!

There is always more going on around here, and I promise I’ll share more details about my week soon! In the meantime, if you’re on Instagram, you should check out the fun Google Eye Contest I have going on, and if you’re on Pinterest, you should check out the Paid to Pin contest.

One more thing before I head back to the party… last night I was walking back from the last event of the evening, and I saw this… I just had to stop and take a picture…

There was a couple dancing under the lights of the gazebo. Holding each other, and swaying to music that only they could hear.

It reminded me that though weeks seem to fly by … they are made up of individual moments. I’m trying to immerse myself in each experience and each moment as fully as I can.


  1. Hi Carolina-

    I’m so impressed with all that you accomplished this week. I wish I could say the same for myself, but alas, no. I’m glad to hear that your presentation went well and that people learned from it. That must feel great! Congratulations!
