New weekly posts, yay!

My Happy Monday posts have been fun and I think I've been doing a pretty good job at keeping them up (aside from the last one, but it was the holidays so..yeah). Anyways, I've found some blogs recently that I absolutely love and that have inspired me to start up 2 more weekly posts. Now, I can't promise that these will last forever, but Im going to give them both a try and see how it goes. (That is my "live in the now" mantra speaking, aren't you proud of me?!)

So, introducing...(drum roll).....

1) Quotation Wednesday
This idea came from my extreme joy when Lisa shared this blog! I love how it showcases eclectic quotes in such an interesting way through pictures. So, I am going to try to do the same! I love quotes and have been trying to find a way to share my favorites with you, so yay Im excited!!

2) Friday's Simple Pleasures
This idea came from the blog 1000 simple pleasures that I talked about on Monday. I have always been a big proponent of appreciating the small things in life. One of my first posts was about finding $5 for cripes sake!! I just think that life gets too crazy sometimes and we need to be reminded of the simple joys  that are all around us. We need to stop and smell the roses, for lack of a less corny reference! So, I will do my best to be that reminder. And what better day to showcase life's simple pleasures than on Friday, which is itself, a simple weekly joy?!

I also made those fun button things for the names, but I can't decide which of these two to use for  Happy Mondays. Which one do you guys like?
Option a)..
..or option b) ??

Im pretty excited about these new posts! What do you guys think?

First off - thank you so much for the kind/thoughtful comment today! And that Brandi Carlile quote was PERFECT. Gosh she rocks!

I am looking forward to these weekly posts! I am glad you liked the quote blog. It rocks. So many great quotes on there.

I like either of the options for Happy Monday! They are both!!
