Now before you picture me spritzing mashed potato and gravy or teriyaki chicken scented fragrances up in the air and letting them land on me, please be assured that is not what I am talking about.

Monday Confessions: The Vlog That Almost Wasn’t (Video)

So finally I posted the vlog today that I was supposed to post last Sunday. Last Sunday because the plan is to post on the channel at least once a week and Sunday was the designated day. A new vlog was supposed to go up this week, but that’s not how things ended up working out.

So I have to say one thing… Perfection is the enemy of productivity. I am a perfectionist and I have to stop it.

My Mini Designer Bag Collection and Luxury Wishlist

Throughout the years I have accumulated the odd luxury item here and there. I remember being an Army wife with two young children years ago. I chose to stay at home with my children when they were very young, one because young Soldiers are not rolling in dough, and depending on where we were stationed, the spouse often had very little real job prospects at the time, aside from retail. We made the conscious decision to put our family first, make sacrifices, and do without much beyond the basics, especially because we were a single income family for a long…
