This weeks themes:
dropping, making, wearing, kissing, keeping

I;m currently dropping my phone this week. I dropped it yesterday at the park, I'v dropped it at the mall, I've dropped in my bathroom, etc. I've dropped it so many times, I have a small crack on the screen. I've never dropped a phone so many times.

I'm currently making an Easter/spring wreath with plastic Easter eggs. A DIY post about how I make my wreaths is coming soon. 

I'm currently wearing a new pair of jeans today! I'm going out for an early Easter dinner with my boyfriend and dad's family. 

I'm currently kissing my boyfriend of course! I love kissing him :)

I'm currently keeping a journal of all my thoughts and lists. I've always kept a journal, but never succeeded. Now, I'm trying to write in it everyday. I bring it with me everywhere. You never know when inspiration will hit.

Radiant Orchid

This year's Pantone color is Radiant Orchid. You may have seen it in the Sephora's window, where they have the color available. I absolutely love this color! Purple happens to be my favorite color and I'm so happy that it's color of the year.

If you don't have any purple items in your wardrobe, then here's some inspiration for you. Surprisingly, I don't have a lot of it in my wardrobe. But I do have a lot of purple nail polish.

This weeks themes:
reading, feeling, racing, using, smelling

I'm currently reading my event and wedding planning textbook. As well as some new books I bought, like Mrs. Poe and The House of Memories. 

I'm currently feeling lost. I'm still uncertain about event and wedding planning. I may want to do interior design, but I'm not sure about that either. I want to do something that I love and do something where there's a good job market. I also feel lost about finding a job, finding my niche, getting an apartment, my future, saving up money for my future (I'm having trouble doing that without going broke all the time. I get to a certain amount and then it's gone), etc. I'm just lost about life in general. 

I'm currently racing nothing. 

I'm currently using my laptop to write this post up! I'm also using my event and wedding textbook more (which is a good thing), and the treadmill more. 

I'm currently smelling roasted sunflower seeds. My dad just dry roasted some in a pan.

I know I've been quiet lately. I try to update more but to no avail it never happens. I have all these great posts queued up but I either never post them or finish writing them. It's hard being a blogger at times! It's hard keeping up with this no matter how many times I say I'll post more. But nonetheless, let's see what I've been up to this past week. 

This weeks themes: 
battling, surfing, jumping, taking, making 

I'm currently battling laziness. Ever since I graduated college last May, I have no motivation for anything! I try to study for my certification program, I try to do my craft work, I try painting and doodling, I try blogging, etc. I try to keep up with so many things that I used to do when I was in school and I just can't do it. All I want to do is surf the web, watch TV, and sleep. Oh, and spend time with my boyfriend. I guess being in school kept me motivated to do other things. I hated school so when I got home I did things that were pleasurable to me. For some reason now, I have no motivation for those things. I'm trying to get make in the swing of things but it's really difficult. 

I'm currently surfing the web and channels a lot lately. Oh, and train surfing too. I've been taking more public transportation than I used to. 

I'm currently jumping nothing. 

I'm currently thinking about everything I want to do, in the present and future. I want get back in the swing of things, save money for my apartment, meditate more, tap into my spiritual side more (I consider myself spiritual, not Catholic anymore), stop being lazy, take more walks, paint more, do more crafting, writing, blogging, etc. I have a lot of time to think now since I've graduated. And I think way too much when I need to go to sleep and I'm in the shower. 

I'm currently making wreaths. I make handmade wreaths from pom poms. Again, I'm trying to do more craft work.

Sunday Social

How much time do you spend on Social Media a day? A lot! I check Facebook multiple times a day, I spend way too much time scrolling through Tumblr, I tweet almost everyday, I go on Pinterest and  Instagram a few times a week. 

How long were you reading blogs before you started a blog? Maybe a year, I'm not quite sure. 

What is your favorite kind of cupcake? Oooo....that's a tough one. Crumbs is like 10 minutes from my house, so I go there a lot. I LOVE anything with vanilla, chocolate chips, candy, red velvet, and peanut butter. 

Do you eat fast food? If so whats your favorite? Yes I do! Since the mall is 10 minutes away from me (which is where Crumbs is) and I'm there often, I tend to eat at the food court a lot. It's cheap and I'm on a budget! I mainly eat Chipotle or Chinese when I'm there. If I'm not at the food court, I go to Subway across the street or I walk a few blocks down to Panera. I will never eat Wendy's, McDonald's, or Burger King. Yuck!

What is the most random thing someone would find in your purse? Coupons. Seriously, I never know when I'll come across a great deal or sale. Or when I'm out and think of something I need to buy, I know I'll save money because I have the coupon. I refuse to pay full price. 

What is the weirdest TV show you watch? Hmmm...Extreme Couponing maybe? But I don't think that's really weird.
