It’s Okay Flashback Feature #44

Nugget On A Budget

It’s okay…

…that I decided to link up today in the same post as my regular Tuesday Flashback Feature – because that feature will be retired soon and I may replace it with this link up.

…that ever since I decided to do the link up I’ve been thinking in my head of all the things I can write!

…that I’m running out of Flashback photos and today’s are kind of lame.

…that I got a new Project Life Core Kit to encourage me to catch up on the project. I’m still working on June.

…that there is another 3 day holiday this week.

…that I’ve been obsessing about fashion. This way I actually dress nicely most days!

…that I’ve gotten back into knitting. It’s the best way to add scarves to my collection – though they take awhile!

…too feel bad for myself when I don’t get chosen for sponsored campaigns.

…to stress over my posts when I do get chosen.

…to be annoyed that I ordered my life planner 3 weeks ago and it still hasn’t shipped. (They normally estimate 10 days!)

…that I only sold about half of my consignment sale items. I still met my goal.

…that I switched my comments to the disqus system. Hope you don’t mind!

…that I glued Zachary’s Cub Scout patches on his shirt instead of sewing them.

…that as much as I want to sleep in the Sukkah, I am still not going to Zachary’s Cub Scout campout on Saturday night. I am sending Dave instead.

…that for today’s Flashback Feature I am sharing pictures from 2006. They are in honor of Sukkot, which is this week. I used to have a group of friends who all had babies at the same time and we had a play group every week. For Sukkot, we all played in my Sukkah. Well, actually outside of it. Gabbie was a year and a half in these pictures.

Hopefully I will be sharing more about Sukkot and our Sukkah this year before the holiday starts tomorrow afternoon!

I don't think those were lame at all, I think they're adorable. :)

Thank you!

I love that you changed to Disqus commenting and also that you are joining Kera' linkup and I am thinking of linking something up, too :)

Dara said...

I did it so I can reply to you! :)

Janine Huldie said...

Yay and I love getting your comments!! :)

Yay you're on the Disqus team now! I love Disqus, it's so much easier to respond to comments than through emails. And thanks for playing along and linking up this week ~ I appreciate the support :)


I totally stress over my sponsored posts too. And I've been getting a TON of them lately, it's crazy. Too bad most of them are not paid. What kind of life planner did you order? I want an Erin Condren so bad.

Dara said...

so far I'm liking disqus! that's good that you've gotten a ton of sponsored posts - go you! I ordered the erin condren one. I don't know what the delay is about!

Yay for linking up to its okay! This is one of my very favorite link ups. It is like a therapy/vent session. I'm a little annoyed, I recently did a giveaway in a sponsored post and now they aren't getting back to me. Grrrr.

My mom used to glue my Girl Scout patches on, no worries there. She swears that it was easier and more effective. ;)

Dara said...

I like it so I can come up with whatever to write about, but then again, I have to come up with whatever to write about! I'm sorry about the sponsor who isn't being in contact about the giveaway, that is frustrating! and I'm glad I'm not the only one to glue on patches!

It's easy to obsession about fashion... It's FALL!! Some of the greatest clothes come out during this season! :)

Sara said...

Umm I need to know what the deal is with Disqus. What are the benefits of it??

Sara said...

I hope you share about Sukkot and Sukkah because I have no idea what it is.

Leslie said...

I like it because it doesn't clog my inbox with emails. As a commenter, it notifies me when Dara replies to my comment which I like too. :)

Dara said...

tune in later today!

Dara said...

now I'm obsessing about makeup too! I'm like a teenager who never learned how to look good.

Dara said...

I definitely go through phases!

Ducky said...

I'm a little embarrassed that I have never thought to glue a patch instead of sewing. I Gorilla glue just about everything else. From my shadow of shame, I applaud your genius!

I'm thinking about using the Project Life products to scrap about 3 years worth of photos I have printed out! haha I went digital for 2012 and this year (although I haven't printed anything yet because it's so expensive...waiting on an awesome offer! haha) but maybe PL will get me caught up with previous years!

Dara said...

uggh. I posted on twitter and emailed customer service and it finally shipped yesterday. that was just short of 3 weeks. it better be worth the wait!!
