These last two weeks have been two of the busiest that I’ve ever had! Despite my best intentions, last week’s Week at a Glance just wasn’t in the cards, so here’s the highlight reel on what has been going on…
I launched my first KonMari Kids Virtual Group Tidying program last Sunday and it couldn’t be going better. This program is my baby; I created this entire approach to applying the KonMari Method to family life and so I’m especially proud that it is being so well received! I got a much needed girls shopping day in last weekend (that makes two weekends in a row shopping, I’m on a roll). Carla and I took a quick trip to Halifax to take advantage of a great sale at Gymboree and also squeezed in a yummy lunch, a Starbucks run and a great shop at the Gap Factory store. While I bought mostly for the kids, I did manage to buy some new pieces of clothing for myself – always a nice treat! This past week, I turned thirty-three and enjoyed a sweet day celebrating another year – I have big plans to make it the best one yet! I finally spent some time working on Mairi’s bedroom makeover. It felt good to make some headway, especially given it had been weeks of no progress. Mairi and Loic met their new babysitter on Wednesday and it went fantastically well; such a huge relief to know they’ll be in great hands and having fun. I am very much looking forward to having designated work days each week so that when the kids are home with me, my focus will be solely on them. Work lately has been exciting and fun, I’ve been spending a lot of time concentrating on the backend of my business; really focusing on my programs and beginning to develop some new concepts. On Friday I attended my first East Coast Mommy Bloggers workshop in the city (yes, another excuse to get there)! It was such a great experience that it is worthy of a separate post (stay tuned!).
So far, this week coming is looking like a fairly relaxed one. I plan to finish up the last of the decorating in Mairi’s room and then really prioritize doing the same in my office space. I also plan on getting back into filming and hopefully post a bit more actively on here. Otherwise, I really want to keep things as low keyed as possible because it has been such a whirlwind lately and I’m feeling like some rest is definitely needed.
Last week’s Hello Fresh experience has inspired me to be a bit more creative with our meal planning and so I’ve spent nearly an hour poking around on Pinterest to come up with a few new ideas to change things up a bit. If you have any family favourite recipes, I’d love it if you’d share (in the form of a comment on here would be great).
Here’s what we’ll be whipping up this week:
