Monday, Monday...

Good Moring, Monday Morning. I can’t help but hum “Monday Monday” by the Mammas & the Pappas today. It seems like it’s going to be just “one of those days”. I’m already at work trying to jot down these quick ideas before I start the multitude of work I have to complete. If there only was a way to squeeze out a lil more time in the morning for daydreaming and organizing…hmmm…

This weekend was full of love, birthdays, memories & sinking ships. I saw all 4 of my grandparents over the course of the 2 jam-packed days and hearing “I love you Melanie” from each of them warmed my soul. One of the greatest stolen moments. I know I say this a lot, but I’m truly lucky to have them all in my life. One of my grandmother’s turned 87 yesterday. Unbelievable & she is still feisty as ever.  Hehe. Saturday night my friend Zoe and I went to see the movie Titanic on the 100th anniversary of the infamous day. She and I went to see the movie 15 years ago when it first came out. I still cried, but how could you not?  A lot of things have changed since then that it’s truly crazy. We didn’t even have cell phones back then & couldn’t get into the movie without a parent present. Lol. Seeing it on the big screen again I noticed a few new things too. I didn’t realize it was Billy Zane’s family who funded the whole expedition for the Diamond & at 11 I didn’t know that the Guggenheims were on that ship. Poor people, may they all rest in peace.

This week is going to be a mish mosh of cake pops, more family visits, possibly seeing CJ’s new band rock it out in their very own studio space, and the Bridal Shower for my cousin’s fiancée. I’m basically going to hold on and let the roller coaster take me where it wants to this week. Here’s hoping it all pans out alright! 

I have to start working, but I want to leave you guys with this thought. 

“It’s never too late to start something great.” 

While Zoe and I was waiting to see Titanic, we went to Barnes & Noble real fast. I was rummaging around the bargain books and there was this lil coffee table book about 172 things that it is never too late to start. It was so motivating thumbing through it’s pages I have to pass that thought on to you. 

Happy Monday & Best Wishes for the week! 


  1. It's a great feeling seeing grandparents. Their hugs and "i love yous" just warm the soul like no other. I can't wait to go re-watch The Titanic! And that quote is wise and inspiring.
