Brain Dump

When I think about some of my talents or abilities (aka obsessions & compulsions) there is one thing that comes to mind.


I love to organize. I think I get some kind of high out of organizing something whether that be a cluttered closet, a filing cabinet or my Saturday errands. I LOVE getting organized.

Recently I was thinking about how I even organize my brain.

For example today there was SO MUCH going on at work and I felt like the thoughts in my brain were a little out of control. By the end of the day I had so many thoughts floating around that I didn't even know what I needed to get accomplished. So I proceeded to do what I call a "brain dump."

I got a paper and a pen and wrote down all the thoughts in my head. I listed everything that was on my list of "to do's." I referenced my email for a reminder of to do items and transferred all my many sticky notes to one large consolidated list.

Once on paper it is much easier to prioritize and decide what needs doing first. I like doing this at the end of the day when it feels like my brain has gotten a bit cluttered. Doing a brain dump at the end of the day helps me unwind and have a prioritized list of things to begin with the next day.

So if your feeling a little cluttered up top do a brain dump.

Sign of a recent engagement...

While driving to my dentist appointment today (no cavities by the way) I noticed a straight giveaway of what must have been a girl recently engaged.

I was stopped at a stoplight behind a girl with her left hand situated at the top of the steering wheel giving her optimal sunshine to admire the glistening and glittering of her brand new diamond ring.

I smiled to myself because I have been guilty of the same thing.

One year later... and I still love to look at my ring and watch it glitter in the sunshine.

23 years old...

It's true. I turned 23 years old on May 22 and my birthday was just fabulous. Husband doted on me ALL day. The day consisted of...

singing card ("whoop there it is")
dancing to the singing card
crate paper decor
IHOP breakfast
Emperor's New Groove
Cabellas (new North Face jacket)
DELICIOUS chocolate cake

Check out the video below to see the wonderful decorating job Husband did of the apartment. I think he should go into interior decorating, no?
