Confessions of a Workaholic

November 8, 2011 § 1 Comment

So, I totally had a “Saved by the Bell” moment last night. You know, the one where Jessie has her infamous breakdown because she doesn’t have enough time to study for her test and perform with Hot Sundae. Yeah…that’s how I’m feeling. All the while super happy and grateful for everything at the moment. Between putting on 6 events in two weeks, meeting with new and potential brides, and having enough creative energy to blog, my brain literally hurts.

So, how do you find balance? Do you ever feel like you are working so hard that you are not really producing anything of worth at the end of the day? I started out needing this blog as an outlet for my creative energy. As a way to connect with people like me in hopes of showing at least one person something they would enjoy. I am constantly overwhelmed by you, the readers, that you take a minute out of your day to read something I’ve written.

It’s been almost two weeks since I’ve posted and I feel sad that I’ve let the craziness of my life take over my time and the energy I’ve needed to blog. So how do you do it? How do you manage your time to be a good wife, sister, daughter, friend, business person, etc…?

So this is me in all honesty. I don’t always fully disclose my feelings like this. More than likely, if you were to ask me how I’m doing, I’d probably say, “Great!” But sometimes the truth needs to be said, or written. So, here I am processing my feelings for all of you to see. Maybe I’m not the only one…

As a matter of fact, I rather feel like expressing myself now. – Audrey Hepburn

Welcome to my little piece of the internet! Hopefully you can find something of worth or entertainment on this little blog of mine. I am truly fascinated by style, all style. I don’t necessarily believe there is a “right” kind of style, but I do believe there is a wrong. You may agree or disagree with me and that’s fine. I am committing myself to writing these posts to further educate myself and to just have fun!

A little over a month ago, I left my classroom as a 5th and 6th grade music teacher to move to Austin, TX to become a wedding and event planner. I grew up in the wedding business and my new transition is somewhat of a homecoming for me, literally, since the wedding venue is also our home.

Keep reading this blog and you’ll see topics like fashion, make-up, my fav beauty products, wedding trends and decor, wedding dresses and bridal couture, and wedding etiquette.¬†Why Antebellum? I’m from Texas, I was born and raised in the south, and I believe in most of what the south represents like elegance, poise, grandeur, etiquette, beauty, and big hair.

The bigger the hair, the closer to God, right??
