The Sunday Social: Week 10

I'm trying to be consistent with this whole blogging thing but I've been really busy trying to get things ready for my Etsy business.  It's a LOT of work!  I'm getting there...slowly but surely.  So for now, I'm going to link up with Ashley from Ashley Lately for her Sunday Social :)  If you want to participate, just go to her blog to grab the button and copy the questions for your own blog and then link your blog back to hers.

1. What are your favorite things to do on a lazy day?
Lately, I haven't had a lazy day at all.  I'm trying to start an Etsy business where I'll be selling adorable children's clothing and boutique baby items.  It's a lot of work but I'm determined to wait until I have everything complete before I open up shop so it may be another month or so.  However, if I did have a lazy day, it would probably include my laptop and tv....since both are such time wasters lol

2. What is your tv guilty pleasure?
I don't watch anything besides hgtv lol When I don't have control of the remote, the tv is on discovery or history channel. guilty pleasures for me unless you include wishing I could be on House Hunters International and looking for an apartment in Paris :)

3. What is your favorite road trip music?
Just like any other time, my music choices vary based on my mood.  I typically listen to Michael Buble, Dean Martin, Jack Johnson, John Meyer, Bing Crosby, etc.  But then sometimes, I like Katy Perry, Pink, etc.  It just depends.

4. What are your favorite magazines or books to read by the pool or laying around?
I'm not a big magazine person because I typically think they are a waste of money.  I like romance novels (but not really the trashy kind).  I also like Christian romance/suspense novels.  I like books that have a love story but that isn't the sole focus of the book...there's something else going on.  My favorites are Divergent, Hunger Games, and Twilight.... yeh I'm like a 16 year old  lol

5. What is your favorite snack?
Just one?? How can anyone choose just one favorite snack.  Honestly...I don't have a clue.  If I'm following my diet like I'm supposed to, I snack on string cheese and pepperoni and almonds.


Hopefully I can come up with something to blog about soon.  Once I do my photoshoots with my little models for my product, I will blog about my new Etsy business.  I will probably wait until I have the shop open.  My goal is by mid-March. 

This next weekend, I will be hosting a baby shower for my sister-in-law.  I was so ahead of schedule a couple of weeks ago that I started concentrating on other things.  Now, I don't feel like I'm prepared or have everything together.  I don't have many people coming as of right now so I'm not really going all out but it will still look nice :)  I love giving parties but the preparation for everything can be stressful.



  1. I agree most magazines are a waste on money. I used to subscribe to a couple and the content got worse and they wanted more money so I did not renew my subscription. I'm not so much into the love stories but the teen/young adult books can be fun as they are easier to follow. Hope you have a great week!

  2. I love YA books, and I am over 40. The Hunger Games series is one of my favorites, but I am really looking forward to the movie adaption of Divergent as well. I need to get better about blogging; I like when I do, but it is hard to get started.

    1. I'm looking forward to the Divergent movie also but I'm hoping not to be disappointed. Not sure I like the choice for Beatrice. Oh well :) I like blogging. I just feel like I don't have anything to say so I don't....or I keep saying the same things over and over.
