Getting Things Straight.

tee: f21   l   cargos: ae   l   turban: rayna jaye   l   bracelets: c/o apple of my eye


Today it hit me. I've been doing some serious slackage on my prioritizing lately. To give you a brief image of what it's been looking like around here, the dishes have been piling up, our clean laundry has been sitting in the hamper getting wrinkled for almost a week now, and my cooking has been pretty boring and repetitive. And yet, I somehow manage to find the time to blog almost 5 times a week? No. That is not okay. Luckily for me though, I have a sweet husband who doesn't do a bit of complaining but instead, just picks up the slack for the both of us. -Who raised this kid anyway?? I can't keep depending on him like that though. Marriage is all about teamwork and lately I just haven't been pulling my weight. But I really do love blogging. It's become one of my newest favorite hobbies. And Jerry is so awesome and supportive about it all. But it takes a lot of time ya know? Reading your cute blogs, writing on my own blog, taking pictures, etc etc etc. It all adds up and I shouldn't be putting that much time into blogging. At least not when there are other things that need to be taken care of. I have a house, a husband, school, an internship, and other priorities that should come first. So bear with me for the next couple of weeks as I work on my prioritizing won't ya? Posts will be a bit different and scarce from the usual,  but I do have some fun giveaways and sponsor spotlights coming up so stay tuned for that!

As always, thanks so much for reading.
Your support on our little blog means soo much to me  <3

  3. OMG Marsa, as I was reading your post, I was also sitting here talking to my fiancé about how overwhelmed I am with everything + blogging. I totally feel you girlfriend. However, i am a bit discouraged to step away from blogging since you know I'm rebuilding from scratch :-/ sigh.. I don't know what I'm going to do, but reading this really put things in perspective for me. So I thank you. You are awesome as always and so is Jerry. You two are our twin couple! xoxo

  5. Oh boy. This is my life: always desperately needing to prioritize and never putting the most important things first. I'm glad you have such a supportive partner (aka husband) in your life :)

    P.S.: You are so adorable!

  7. First things first...you are rocking those cargo pants.

    I totally understand what you mean. Blogging takes a lot of time...thinking of posts, taking pictures, writing, editing pictures...but I do love your blog (so don't run away or anything) :-)

    Also...I am super guilty of the clean clothes getting all wrinkled in the hamper.

  10. Blogging sometimes can be like a second job! It is definitely time consuming so I completely understand that you need to find the time for the more important things in your life.

  13. You make me feel like such a bad blogger ha! I do read blogs, but don't comment regularly and my posts are, what? Once a week at best?! You do it all, all on top of living a full schedule day to day. MARSA! You're super blogging woman!

    You look adorable, btw:) I want your pants!

  17. I totally understand! I have sadly had to neglect my blog (at least till summer) because I know I need to make other things my priorities.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh my goodness!! I have been feeling this exact same way!! I have been totally slacking on certain duties. But it just takes stepping back like you have and figuring out what takes priority. Good luck on all your stuff you need to get done :)

    xo,

  24. Wow, sounds like me lately...I've been putting off things to do blogging instead too. Its such an enjoyable hobby, isn't it? I think the pull for me is also the friendships I've made through it. I value those. However, you're right - we've got a real life to be in too! Haha, so don't worry about blogging less regularly - your readers won't abandon you. You're too cute to that to anyway ;)
    I love your headscarves and the cargo pants you're rocking!

  36. oh prioritizing, one of my least favorite things. but i agree, it can become so easy to put the blog first when it's what we enjoy most. (why can't housework be fun?) good luck with it all and i always look forward to when you post!
