Happy Saturday cupcakes!

How has this second week in February been treating you? I have been buzy at work and in the evenings me and Cas have been cooking and watching Dexter - our all time favorite serial killer. (Now there's a sentence I thought I'd never write!)

When I logged on today I noticed that I haven’t been posting anything since Tuesday. Time just keeps running out on me and I just don't have as much time for the blog as I used to.

The reason is a combination of work getting a lot busier that it used to be and Cas moving in with me. Before I used to have time to make a post in the lunch break but nowadays I am lucky if I get any lunch break at all. Most of the time we are just eating with one hand and working with the other! And before Cas moved over I used to spend a lot of time at my PC chatting with him on skype (which of course was the perfect time for blogging!) but these days we spend a lot more time cooking, going out or watching TV and a lot less time in front of the pooters.

This have made me realize that I have to lower my own expectations on how often I can update my blog - instead of feeling that small sting of guilt every day I don't find the time for it. So from now on I will try to update maybe 3-4 times a week instead of 6-7. And I was thinking maybe it would be wise to make as much as possible of that my own pictures and material and cut down a bit on the inspirational posts. There are just so many fantastic blogs out there for that purpose!

But I am curious - what posts would you like to keep? Any favorites you would be sad to see go? Or is there anything you would be happy to see less of? Any feedback you might have will be most welcome!

And a fantastic February weekend to you all ♥

    Big Hugs,

  2. Hei hei
    Her var det masse flott, nå vil jeg snart på shopping, har ikke vært siden før jul...!!
    Ikke så mye tid lese blogger i løpet av uken, bruker litt for mye tid her i helgene, men det er jo så kjekt.
    Ha en kos helg, og nyt den!!

  3. That is a gorgeous colour combination.

    I can understand this as it was hard when my husband first came from Pakistan and still is but its something you find a moment to balance everything.

    I love all your blog posts and I think you should keep all of them as you then don't feel you come to the computer and have to think of something... this way you can choose the one that inspires you must at that time.

  4. I think it's fantastic that love has made you busier! What's not to love about that?!

  5. Love those rings! And I think it's wonderful that you finally have Cas there with you to really enjoy life together. Blogging will always be here whenever you have time for it. No need to feel guilty. Quality time with your loved ones and happiness in life is much more important.

    Have a wonderful weekend, sweetie! xoxo

  6. Purple is starting to be my new favorite color. I wore it out when I was a teenager and didn't wear it for years.

    Hugs from Texas Signe!

  7. that is a pretty post! I think I want all of this.

  8. If it wasn't so snowy here, I would totally wear those platforms. Gorgeous! xo

  9. the rings and the scarf are my favorite!

  10. I know my comment doesn't make sense but I accidently pressed publish so decided to leave it. Still you managed to understand my babbling and I'm glad you're happy with that suggestion.

    I have some set days for certain things and sometimes I have found it quite restrictive, this way if you still have all your blog ideas/themes going you can pick the one that most inspires you when you do make it to a computer.

    I am going to miss your regular posts/comments but I 100% understand, it will just make us appreciate the posts you do manage :).

    Continue to have fun with Cas and to build many happy memories.
