New York City or Bust!

Scott Silverii and I are leaving for New York and ‪#‎rwa15‬ this morning. We have a packed week ahead with meetings and more meetings, with a side of a couple of workshops we're teaching. But we do get to have some fun and see Wicked tomorrow night, which I know Scott is secretly thrilled about because he has Broadway fever now. ‪#‎JazzHands4Ever‬
Scott and I both took our 5 Love Languages tests yesterday. I knew my love language was touch, which is why Scott has become such an awesome hugger over the last couple of years (and so many of you give him those spontaneous hugs now!). But Scott's love language was tricky for me to pin down, so he took the test yesterday and he's a quality time/acts of service kind of guy. So really, me buying tickets for us to go see Wicked fulfills both of these needs. #‎SeeWhatIDidThere‬
It's been an amazing week for me career wise. Opportunities have come my way that I never dreamed of (and none of which I can announce yet), but I never forget how very blessed I am in this life to keep getting to do what I love and continuously have doors opened for me. I sometimes have to stop and ask myself, "Is this real?" It turns out it is, so I'll just keep doing what I do and loving every minute of it. What makes it sweeter is that I get to share it with Scott and we get to travel the journey together.

Organization Procrastination

First of all, it should not excite me this much to have ordered 3 new whiteboards and dry erase markers from Amazon. Scott Silverii is much cooler than me and is probably not as excited that three large whiteboards will soon take up residence in our house.‪#‎DontTellHimIPickedOutNewFileCabinetsAndADeskToo‬
Second of all, I've got a book to finish, a formal dress to find that I don't hate, roots to be colored, a pedicure to get so I don't have velociraptor feet, and a suitcase to pack for RWA. If you've ever packed for RWA then you understand I should've started packing sometime last week. I have 5 days to accomplish these tasks. And 5 children to try and hinder any progress.‪#‎GameOn‬ ‪#‎WhenDoesSchoolStart‬
Lastly, I'm writing this post instead of working on my book because I'm not sure what happens next. ‪#‎TheProblemsWithPantsing‬ ‪#‎Procrastination‬
