Today was very frustrating to me.
I won’t go into many details.
All I will say is this: People should be more thankful!
No matter your situation, there is always something to be thankful for.
It saddens me to see that this is the world my son will grow up in.
In light of this, I have decided to start a new project.
I want to make a difference and make the world a happier place!
As I’m sure you have read before, Beautiful Imperfection is my mommy blog.
Its kind of cute too (I’m proud of it)
Here, I am going to start a challenge. A challenge to be a positive inspiration to people.
To encourage others to be happier.
To encourage others to look around them and see what they have to be thankful for.
I will share with you when the details are complete.
Now for some fun!
I have decided to follow in an old family tradition with NighLon.
In my family, my family left the Christmas Tree up until January 2, every year.
This was to bring something good from the old year into the new year.
Following in this tradition, I am going to keep the blog kit giveaway going until January 3rd.
Just follow the requirements HERE by January 3rd, and you will receive a free custom blog kit!

Organize With Sandy has become one of my favorite blogs.
Like I said before, organizing has not been my thing lately.
Its hard to believe that I was at one time the most organized person I know.
The sad part is, I have no clue what happened.
On to Sandy. She is wonderful. She is talented. She is a geek. She is organized.
What could be better? When I read her blog, I often think…
“Oh yeah, she is genius… I want to be her when I finally grow up!”
Not only will you find ways of organizing; stories about being a mom and a wife; and definitely some motivation!
Hop on over to Organize With Sandy, Just let her know I sent you!

I am a total commercial junkie.
I mean, I could watch commercials instead of actual TV.
Every year, I have a favorite Christmas commercial;
If you know me, you can probably guess which one it is!
I love these little pink and silver guys!
I am not really a fan of TMobile commercials in general,
but what’s not to love about shiny elves?
I just love them, I could dress up like one!
