This is Supposed to be My Spring Fashion Post

Spring Floral pattern2

Hey all!  Happy first day of Spring!!!  I am so excited to be able to say that, and I am guessing you are too.  I wanted to pop in on this fine morning to tell you that I have an awesome fashion post coming to you very soon.  Do you ever have one of those weeks when you just can’t get it all done?

 Well, I have had one of those weeks. 

In case you didn’t know, in addition to blogging I actually have a full time job.  I had planned on my editorial calendar to post my Spring Fashion Must Haves this morning, and it just isn’t going to happen.  Finally, at about 10 pm last night, I had to face the facts.  I have three kids, and it has been a busy week.  I try to steer clear of posting more than one sponsored post on my blog in one week, and even when I do, I try to still bring you the same amount of posts that I usually put out per week in addition to the sponsored ones.

But this week, I had an opportunity to write a sponsored post (which will go live this evening) that I just couldn’t pass up.  You see, I support my blogging habit through these types of sponsored posts.  That way, the money to run this blog, and the projects I do for this blog, do not come out of our family budget.  Because this was a kind of last minute opportunity, the time I would have spent to write my spring fashion must have post was spent preparing for and writing something else.  If I am going to accept an opportunity to write a sponsored post, I always want it to be a product or service that I can get behind, and I always want to put just as much effort and quality into it as I would anything else I post on my blog.  After all, that is what the product or company is paying me for, right?

Disappointed that this isn't my actual fashion post?, I know!  ( I seriously doubt that anyone reading this is as disappointed as I am…anyone?)

But, on the bright side, I bought a ticket to attend Haven last night- and all with money I made from opportunities that have been brought to me through this blog!  And that, my friends, is a very exciting thing!!  If you don't know what Haven is, you are not a blogger, and you probably don't care.  If you are a blogger, and you are going to Haven, let me know, I would love to connect with you!

Anyhoo, as a result, my fashion post had to be slightly delayed.  But it is definitely in the works, and I am hoping to have it live by tomorrow morning.  So I do hope that you will come back and take a gander at it.  Because I have been planning it for a while and it is going to be fabulous!!!

Lots of great things for Spring- my most favorite time of the year! 

See you on the flip side!
