Inspire Me Mon! + NYC & BHG

Inspire Me Mon! + NYC & BHG

Monday’s are always a bit overwhelming for me. Are they for you too? I’m a huge advocate for 3 day weekends… and Monday’s should be day 3, don’t you think? We all need an extra day to re-coup and re-new! There is a lot happening in Casa de Sand & Sisal this week! I’m traveling to NYC by myself for the 1st time ever in my life! I’ve been selected as one of Better Homes & Gardens “Style Makers” for 2014 and I’m flying up to their PR headquarters in Manhattan for a conference with all the pros from BHG and many other amazing stylemaker bloggy girlfriends! I’m seriously having a bit of an anxiety attack combined with total excitement over the whole idea!

Did I mention I have 3 kiddos at home still (one is away at college) and they all have sports, after school activities, and crazy loads of homework. I do travel a few times a year for work, and preparing the hubs for my absence is always nerve-wracking.  Kudos to all you mama’s out there who need to travel frequently!  I still need to figure out what I’m wearing (kill-me-now) and how to pack all of it in a carry on!

So now that you know I’m in a bit of an anticipatory panic, say a little prayer for me and let’s get on with this week’s Inspire Me Monday Party! 😉

So many fabulous features from last week’s party are listed below. Be sure to check out all the highlights.
