PaperDoll Picture Post

Happy Tuesday friends!!  It's getting busy over here in the PaperDoll studio!  I love this time of year even though it's a bit crazy.  I'm adding items to the website today and cleaning out the picture files so a few of these pics are a month or two old.  One of these days, I'll get caught up. 
If you don't see what you are looking for on the website, please email me and I might have it!

Thankful Thursday

 


I WILL be picking a winner this week from all the comments (PRIZE WILL BE A CUTE COFFEE MUG...DESIGN OF YOUR CHOICE!) so don't forget to leave a comment telling me at least one thing you are thankful for!    Let's count our blessings!!!

Today I am thankful for:
  • My better half...after 3 weeks away on business, he is finally coming home and I can't wait!!  I am not the same without him and there are too many kids in this house for one parent.  OUTNUMBERED.
  • My littlest little...he boldly, happily, proudly walked up the aisle while we were at an Easter service last weekend and said that sweet little prayer inviting Jesus into his heart.  So thankful!
  • Diet Dr. Pepper...I've cut down drastically but I am still so thankful for it ESPECIALLY after 3 weeks of The Mister being out of town!
  • Busy season...while it is sometimes stressful, I am so thankful for my wonderful customers who place orders during the end of the school year.  Next to Christmas it is the craziest time of year here at PaperDoll Designs and I am forever grateful for the business.
My life is not perfect.  I have lots of flaws and cranky moments and often think life's not fair but when I take a moment to sit down and count my blessings, it makes me so grateful and thankful for all that God has given me. 

What are you thankful for?  Leave at least one thing in the comments and I WIL pick a winner!!

What's for Dinner?

Better late than never, right?
Here's what's for dinner this week...
Tuesdays are crazy nights and this week we aren't going to have time to eat at home so we'll be coming up with plan B.  I put "Popcorn" on the menu for fun and my kids all threw a fit when they saw it.  I'd be fine with popcorn for dinner most nights but apparently my kids have been spoiled by all this dinner making.  I am ready to add some new meals to the meal planning rotation.  It's starting to get a little boring.  I checked out a ton of cookbooks from the library last week but haven't had a chance to look through them yet.  I'm hoping to get some great new meals in the mix.
 
What are you having for dinner?

Thankful Thursday...and a WINNER!

 

It's my second Thankful Thursday post and I want to kick it off by picking a WINNER from the comments on last week's post!  Jossie Michel...you win!!!  Pick any platter from the website and email me!  Thanks for leaving a sweet comment on last week's post!

I just MIGHT pick a winner this week too (PRIZE WILL BE A CUTE COFFEE MUG...DESIGN OF YOUR CHOICE!) so don't forget to leave a comment telling me at least one thing you are thankful for!    Let's count our blessings!!!

Today I am thankful for:
  • All the healthy foodies I'm following on Instagram....my entire feed has been taken over by pictures of healthy meals and I love it!  It's super motivating!
  • The book A Praying Life...it's just such a great book!!  It's made a huge difference for me!
  • DVRs...I NEVER watch TV live but I love my DVR!
  • Sunshine...finally!!
  • Random gifts...this week I was so blessed by a friend that bought me sequins (she gets me!) and another that randomly gifted me with a cute water bottle and yet another that got me a great devotional book that she knew I would love.  Oh my goodness!!  I have sweet friends that have gift giving as their love language!  I am planning on paying it forward in the next few weeks.
My life is not perfect.  I have lots of cranky moments and often think life's not fair but when I take a moment to sit down and count my blessings, it makes me so grateful and thankful for all that God has given me. 

What are you thankful for?  Leave at least one thing in the comments and I might pick a winner!!

BLOGILATES

I'm constantly trying to change up my workout routine because I tend to get bored if I stick with the same thing too long.  I'm also always trying to save money so I was on the hunt for something I could do for FREE!!  I am loving (to hate) running but don't want to just run everyday so I was super excited when I stumbled upon BLOGILATES via Instagram.  I confess, I have not looked around the website much.  I just went straight to the beginner's workout schedule and gave it a try.  Don't let the "beginner" part fool ya.  Most of the videos are tough and I was super sore after the first few days! 

I'm on day 16 (haven't skipped a day yet!) and so far, I'm really loving it.  Cassy is pretty peppy...I wasn't sure if I could handle all that enthusiasm at first but it seems to keep me entertained and she really changes it up everyday.  I love the variety of the workouts and each month she posts a new workout calendar with some new videos so I'm hoping it keeps me from getting bored.  It's also been super convenient.   I've done workouts in my living room with the iPad, in my office with my laptop and even at a friend's house using my phone!

The best part for a planner nerd like me:  You can print off the calendar and there are checkboxes to check off each workout as complete!  LOVE!

Let me know if you give it a try.

PaperDoll Picture Post

Hi Friends!
I missed posting my regular "What's for Dinner?" post yesterday.  For the first time in months, I didn't do my meal plan for the week.  It was a really busy weekend (THE CRAFTERS BASH!!) and this week is pretty busy too.  Nathan is missing dinners this week due to a work project so it's just me and the kids.  I'm considering joining some friends in a cleanse (never done one before) so I just decided to wing it this week.  I'm sure I will regret this plan to not plan.  We'll see.  I'm hoping to be back to our regularly scheduled program next week. 
 
What are you having for dinner this week?
 
Here's a few pics of what's been going on in the PaperDoll office lately...

Thankful Thursday

 

A friend posted her "Thankful Thursday" list last week on Facebook and I just loved it!  I think I might make this a regular Thursday thing.  I would love it if you would leave some of your Thankful Thursdays in the comments.  Not every week, but at random, I will pick a WINNER and give a personalized PLATTER to one of the commenters!!  Let's count our blessings!!!

Today I am thankful for:
  • Lemons...because I can't drink water without them.
  • Workout buddies...because they make exercising go by so much faster!
  • Jars of sequins on my work table...because they just make me smile.
  • Chore charts...because they keep my life sane and keep my kids busy :)
  • Friends that say "what can I pray about for you today?"...because friends like these are one in a million!
What are you thankful for?  Leave at least one thing in the comments and I might pick a winner!!
