Around Here Lately // Vol. 31

It’s the dawn of a new era at Casa Bagley. I’ve been getting away without much childcare for as long as I could go. As a work-at-home mom, I guess I thought that I should be able to work…at home…with my kids around?

Well, it never worked out that great. And when I started taking on more hours at work, it made sense to get help. After some fits and starts, I found the most delightful young lady. I mean, delightful doesn’t even begin to describe how wonderful she is. I feel like an elephant has been lifted off my chest. I can finally take a deep breath. More on this later.

What else happened this week? Thomas started saying “good girl,” directed at Beatrice. We don’t know if he thinks her name is “Good Girl” or if that type of thing (dog) is called a “Good Girl.” But whatever he thinks, I don’t care. He’s just adorable when he says it. And with so much gusto!

I’ve been scheduling podcasts left and right and gearing up for Season 4. Wow. Season 4! I cannot believe it! I never, ever thought I’d podcast for this long. I never thought any one would be interested or want to be on the show. Wow. I love this medium, and I cannot wait to go in a slightly different direction for Season 4. Plus, I have some guests lined up that I cannot wait to speak to!

On these Friday round ups, I’m going to start sharing some of my favorite things/links from the week, too. So here’s that:

+I work for NDI, and I recently wrote a three-part series on why we decided to tear down our house and build new.

+Do you have a signature color? I’m obsessed with this topic. Kim and I talked about it in a recent 25% Friend episode, and Kelsey wrote about it recently, too. What do you think?! Do you have a signature color? I’m afraid to commit!

+Not going to lie. I ordered this in all the colors (during the 50% off and free shipping sale this week).

+The Rock in the Room. I think we can all relate to this.

+I’m currently reading this, thanks to Kelsey’s recommendation, and wow, this one is hard to put down.

+I’m also reading Amy Schumer’s book, which I’m also enjoying.

+Since it’s cooling down around here, I’ve been drinking tons of this tea from Trader Joe’s.

+I’m ALL about brief email. What do you think? No greeting, no closing? I’m less concerned about that, but when I write emails, I keep them as brief as possible. For work, sometimes I exclusively do bullet points.

Have a great weekend!
