Introduction of Inspiration Tuesday

Today is the first day of school in our district. Aaron's alarm killed me at 5:45am, but by 6am I was up and eating my toast, reading Genesis and rejoicing in the gray skies. I love fall weather and fall clothes. Anyway, it was strange to be up so early before I had to go into work, but I enjoyed an episode of two of Gossip Girl while I painted my nails and contemplated what I should wear. So let's fast forward and get to what I'm excited to post about: inspiration.

I used to do this thing I called "Inspiration Monday". The only problem with that was that I was never actually inspired to DO what I posted about. Lame.

In my defense, I was young, lived in a bedroom in a shared house, and had way too much going on. Now I'm still young, but I have my own house with my sweet husband. I still have a lot going on, but I'm better at getting stuff done. So here we go, my new plan:

Instead of just posting pictures of things that inspire my style, life, house, etc... it's going to be a two-part post. First I will go with my original plan. Post a picture of something cool that I like. Part two will be a follow up on me actually doing what I was inspired to do.

Since this is the first week, I kind of have to keep you in the dark about my project. Next Tuesday I will post the idea, the follow-up and an my inspiration for the following week. I'd love for people to give me ideas. Send me pins, comments, emails... show me what inspires you. Then carry out these projects and ideas and show me! I love the internet.

For a hint at what I'll be working on, head over to my Pinterest "home inspiration" board. Happy Tuesday!


  1. What a cute idea!! You should do a link up!

  2. LOVE THIS! and i TOTALLY agree with the link up thing. something that frustrates me about pinterest is the amount of inspiration accumulated but lack of creation in response to that. i've started to be more intentional with actually doing stuff. so i'd totally link up if you did it. and i'm excited to see what you do. :) :)

    1. I feel the same way! The idea of Pinterest is great, but most people just mindlessly pin and never do any of the projects/ideas. We've gotta turn it around! :)

  3. What a great idea! Looking forward to next Tuesday!
