Hello hello hello and happy Monday friends! I’m back with another BTD WEEKLY round up from the past week. It was a pretty basic week and nothing too out of the ordinary…aka just another week in Dallas. But I will say that I did a TON of admin stuff and foundation-building things that don’t really count for the immediate present but are necessary for the future of BTD. I usually let these things build up over time and then they end up taking way more time and energy than necessary….but I guess that’s the nature of the procrastination beast, right?!
To name a few, I start chomping away at my 2015 taxes (yes, I got a much-needed extension) and worked a bit on my 3 month and 6 month goals and vision for the site and BTD in general. All that to say, I got a little distracted this past week. Hence, if you follow me on snapchat (user: brightonkeller), then you might have seen that I missed 3 of the 4 workout classes I booked for myself…ooops! I can get pretty one track minded at times and have a hard time balancing everything (or stopping one task to start on another when I’m not finished) – are any of you like that?
Enough chatter, let’s get to the good stuff. I’l start with TONS AND TONS of markdowns and then round up my recent instagrams for ya! Let me know if you have any questions!
Also, what did you think of Friday’s post on the 7 steps to decorating your bedroom?! If you haven’t checked it out, let me know what you think! Comment :) Also, you can comment as a guest if you don’t feel like making an account with disqus (the comment system I’m currently using). And speaking of “disqus”, I’m vetting out some alternatives options for commenting to see if there are others that might be easier for YOU to use. Let me know if you have any thought or complaints!

And then I took Thursday off because I got so behind on my content since I was working on so many admin things. I’ve started to do this a lot (take a day or two off from posting on the blog) and it’s been SO NICE! Pushing out content every single day is more work than it may seem and sometimes giving myself is break is such a breath of fresh air!
Lastly, on Friday I added another post to bedroom redecorating series that I’ve been dong over the past month ago. Last time I talked about the different styles of decorating and this time I’ m zooming out and covering the major steps I followed to decorating my room.
