The post where I confess to being rebellious

on being rebellious

I’ve never told you this before, but I tend to be a bit rebellious.

Not in big ways.  Not now (although I did when I was younger.  cough.  statute of limitations. cough cough. changed.)

On the outside, I’m a rule following by the books kind of gal.  I have to be – I expect my kids to obey me.  But that doesn’t change me on the inside.

I am secretly rebellious.

Obsession Confession – Office Supplies

the office supply obsession

A few months back, I made an obsession confession about toilet paper.  I’d like to make a similar confession about office supplies.

I am obsessed with office supplies.

I look forward to late July when the school supply displays go up.  I love the smell of a fresh ream of notebook paper.  I adore color coordinated file folders.  I even kind of like tax season because the stores all have these amazing displays of office supply stuff themed around tax day.

My latest obsession is ARC.  ARC has taken me to either (a) my happy place or (b) a deep dark place from whence I will never return.  The answer depends on who you ask.  I say (a) and my husband says (b).

Let me just warn you that if you have an office supply habit (you know who you are) and you haven’t heard of ARC, then you do NOT want to click on my Pinterest Board devoted to the subject of ARC. Or the one on Smashbooking.  Or the one on Washi Tape.  Just… look away.  

It was enough to make me unfaithful to my beloved 15 year planner brand of choice.  I have no regrets.  NONE!

being realAs I’ve gotten older, I’ve gotten better at being real.

Yesterday (September 2nd) marked three full months of blogging at ThisHappyMom. I went back and looked… I wrote my first post on June 2nd of this year.

That’s also the day I purchased my domain name.

I actually started as a WordPress.com site and becomes self hosted the following weekend.

Looking back at some of those older posts it kind of weird. In three months, I’ve learned a lot about formatting my content for easier reading (shorter paragraphs, using sub headings). I’ve learned how to write content that is search engine friendly. I have really changed the HOW of writing.

But beyond that, WHAT I write about has changed.  It got real.
