A good weekend

I know it's only Saturday, but a lot of good stuff has happened since Friday morning and I need to share.

First - I received an email from Scrapbook Royalty asking me to please join their blog writing team!  The idea (if the other person accepts) is to have two people tackle the writing for the blog.  I'm super excited about this opportunity and look forward to receiving details on how to start posting.  I'm hoping my partner in crime will be awesome and easy to work with.  As we all know, life happens and it will be great to have someone to lean on in case I'm unable to meet my deadline (and vice versa).

Second - I've been given the clear to start my first column for Latin Webzine.  OF COURSE the first article is due on the 25th!  I have another album due for client on the 23rd, so this is gonna be funny.  Not to mention, my work week is kinda I'm going to lose 2 nights of potential work due to work events.  Eek!!!  Not sure what the readership is of the web magazine, but subscription is free.  Please join and check out my postings!

Third - I stepped on the scale today and am super happy to report that since I started actively cooking for myself, I have lost 11 pounds!!!  Madness!  Now I just need to find some time to include some workouts or yoga again.  I'm sure that would kick things up a notch, but I'm not sure I'm going to be getting much sleep in the next days, so working out might have to wait a bit.

Fourth - My parents stopped by this evening for a bit (which was awesome) and it was great to hear mom exclaim that my place was so clean :)  Ha!  Their visits always send me into a tizzy of cleaning, but I've actually been decluttering my house for quite some time....and less clutter always makes things feel more open, more organized and clean.  I still have a ways to go, but having mom's approval was sweet.  If you've ever been lucky enough to have my mom make a meal for you, then you know how spotless her home is! 

And lastly - I have been upgraded to my own office at work (nice change) and have officially moved into the new space.  Pretty spacious and quiet.  Here's hoping it will help me be even more efficient  (though I'm already pretty darn efficient if I do say so myself).  Regardless, it's nice to play my radio and not have it bother anyone but myself.  LOL

So that's the update...weekend full of good news and feel good moments.

I'll take this type of weekend any day!
