Ruffles on Repeat

Oh, Monday. It's a pretty yucky Monday in South Carolina with rain and gray skies but I guess it's okay considering yesterday was beautiful! Which is also why this post is coming at you a little late. I spent my Sunday experiencing Lake Murray, which is a first for me! I still can't get over how big the lake is and all of the history behind the lake. I won't bore you with the details but if you're like me and enjoy history then you've gotta check out some of the history behind Lake Murray. So. Stinking. Cool. 

I know I've shared this ruffled top before, but I wanted to share it with y'all again because it's probably one of my favorite tops. And ironically enough, y'all are still interested in finding out where it is from. Head here if you'd like to check it out! But even though today's post features a pretty cute outfit, I wanted to talk about why it's important to give yourself *reasonable* to-do lists. It's safe to say that I am a perfectionist and I always seem to think there is enough time in the day to get all of the tasks done. But since we've moved into our home, I've learned that it's not quite possible. I was left feeling frustrated because I wasn't checking as many tasks off my daily lists. But then I decided to take a break {aka the past month has been way off for my blogging schedule} and focus on reasonable tasks. We're painting pretty much our entire house and I've made myself a schedule for painting. Instead of grinding out all of the painting as quickly as I can, I want it to be enjoyable. So I am giving myself a small tasks of painting one room/area. If I achieve more, great! I'll feel much better than if I didn't. It seems like such a simple solution but we tend to forget what is reasonable. I'll also be diving into organizational posts because I am the biggest organization enthusiast. First, I'll be giving away and sharing some details on a great planner so stay tuned for that.. Anyways, I hope y'all enjoyed today's post. Go kick Monday's butt.
