Happy Halloween, mah lovelies!!

Hope everyone has a fun night planned.

Vivi has a daycare party this afternoon that I get to attend along with my mom (nana), who is coming into town to stay with us. I'm so excited for some family time!

We will be hanging out in our cul de sac with our awesome neighbors handing out candy, enjoying homemade chilis and soups (and an adult bevvie or two), and watching the little ones try to hang past their bed times in their cute little costumes.

And per usual, I'm sharing some more freebies to help get you in the mood....Halloween inspired desktop wallpapers. :)

And here are directions on installing one of the wallpapers on your mac or your pc.

So, I decided to choose a couple of words for 2015 to help guide my blog and new business startup adventure....HUSTLE and GOAL DIGGER.

I'm not usually one to do the word of the year thing, but this year I want to work my booty off so I can majorly simplify my life later...more on that in a bit.

Today I'm sharing 14 different printables, using my two words that would go great together in a gallery wall grouping or on their own. Sometimes just seeing a word can motivate you to work harder or stay focused on the goal.

Here's one gallery grouping to give you the idea:

There are even 3 different colors choices for each printable...metallic goldmetallic copper or black and white.

Oh and just a little update on my life: 

I (along with some other amazing co-founders) started up a soccer-specific marketing firm this fall, Amplified Soccer. You can read all about what we do here.

So that means that during the weekdays I'm... 

1. Working my job as the Creative and Brand Manager at the NSCAA

And on the evenings and weekends, after Vivi goes to bed, I'm...

2. Running Oh So Lovely Creative (my freelance design + photography business)  
3. Working Amplified Soccer
4. Running this blog (posting original content nearly every single morning)

Oh and the little thing called...

5. Being the best mother, wife, and dog mom that I can possibly be :)

Holy hell...just looking at this list makes me exhausted. Mama needs a draaank.

I'm not looking for sympathy, just putting it out there. So bear with me if I miss a post or 2 each month please.

And I realize that I need to start cutting some things out - I'm working on it. I'm sure my word for 2016 will be Simplify. :D


Do you typically do words of the year? If so what is your 2015 word?
