Breaking out of my shell | LOVELY LITTLE RANTS

Breaking out of my shell













One of my not-mentioned-on-the-blog goals for this year was to be more social! NOT THAT THIS IS A BAD THING but, since becoming a mom (and let's face it, since before that, too!) I have gotten into a habit of being a lot less social. I don't go out too much like I used to and just don't really find time to do things other than work and play mama all day. I'm happy and I love my life, but it never hurts to be more social and make new friends! Obviously people move and we moved and people get married and busy and lots of little things that mean less social time and more grown up stuff. I want to work on getting a better balance of momming, working, and socializing more.

I decided to do something that (to me) was a little crazy and way out of my comfort zone! I decided to throw a party. Not just any party, a party filled with people I don't even know!! I am throwing an event for Arizona bloggers and influencers (omg). I want to meet more people who like the same things I like- aka blogging and influencing!! I had a few ideas in mind and talked to a few blogger friends and set a date. So it's totally happening! I'm nervous and really excited and I think it will turn out to be so fun! I get to talk to sponsors and figure out venue and food and so many things that I actually love doing.

I have always LOVED throwing parties! Like in junior high a friend and I threw a Fear Factor and there were gross stunts (like eating picked pigs feet and squishing ugly bugs in your hands haha, disgusting) and prizes at the end. We even filmed it hahahah Oh how I WISH I could find that footage!! I always begged to be able to throw birthday parties every year and when I had roommates, I always loved having holiday parties and weekly movie nights! It's like a fun stress. Biggest oxymoron ever, I know. But it's fun to have to problem solve and get things into place and hope it all works out and then see everything play out at the actual event. So basically I am pretty excited about this!

Everything is slowwwwly coming together and I cannot wait for it all to play out soon!! Also, if you're an AZ blogger or influencer, you're invited! Email me if you want details ;)

  2. That is such an awesome idea for a party, although I would so come in last haha. I've been trying to make more of an effort to be social, which most people wouldn't think I have a problem with, so I get it.

  3. Haha "fun stress" is the perfect description! I love throwing parties, but I'm always up til like 2 the night before thinking "this will never get finished!!!!!! AHHHHH!!!" But then, it magically does, and everything's fun and people are fun and I forget how stressed I was hahaha. So excited for the blogger party!!!!

  5. What a great way to network! I hope this works out wonderfully for you! I think we could all be more social. Especially us mamas who tend to hermit ourselves. (;
