Thankful – A Quick Thanksgiving Post

Happy Thanksgiving! Before we eat our weight in stuffing and praise whoever invented elastic, I wanted to take a moment and reflect on the year so far. If at this time last year you would have told me what I would have accomplished, I would have thought you were joking. Life has done a complete […]

US Road Trip: Oregon // CEO In Progress

US Road Trip Part 1: Oregon

This is a pretty adventurous trip, so I figured I would start breaking this journey up into a few parts so the post about it isn’t a novel. To start though, a quick recap of how we ended up on a plane headed to Portland in the middle of November. My husband is a huge […]

Holiday Bucket List // CEO in Progress

Holiday Bucket List

Can someone please tell me where this year went? I swear I don’t know how it’s already November. This fall went by in such a flash, I want to make sure that we take time to enjoy the holiday season, so I’m making a bucket list to wrap up the year. We have a lot […]

How to Win Friends & Influence People: Recap & Review

I finally finished my 13th book of the year, How to Win Friends & Influence People by Dale Carnegie. After finishing this book, I get why a lot of college courses use it as required reading. It was one that had been on my Amazon Book Wishlist, but I finally got a chance to make […]

2017 Goals Revisited: How I'm Doing & My 5 Minute Review Process // CEO in Progress

2017 Goals Revisited: How I’m Doing & My 5 Minute Review Process

I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but we are looking at the last little glimmer of 2017. It seems like just yesterday we were drinking champagne and planning out what we thought the year would be like. As much as we goal set, sometimes you just cannot plan for everything. Plans, dreams, situations […]

Getting Involved At Work // CEO in Progress

Getting out of the Bubble: Getting Involved At Work

It’s easy to get used to your normal routine at work. You do your own thing, work with the same people everyday, chat with the people you always chat with. Especially as an introvert, the bubble of your own work is a very comfy and cozy place to be in, but it rarely leaves you […]

Friday Favorites: Halo Top, Kayaking, and the Packard Plant

WE MADE IT. This week has dragged on at work, but I’m so excited for a long relaxing weekend at home. Lately things have been going 100 miles an hour with work and personal projects. I love staying busy, but I could definitely also use a relaxing weekend. We’ve been on the go so much […]

Fall Wardrobe Staples // CEO in Progress

Fall Wardrobe Staples

I’m amazed it’s almost fall and back to school season. I did see some halloween decor out already though and thought I was going to have a heart attack, a little too early for that! It’s not too early, however, to start stocking up on layering pieces and some rich tones. As I get older, […]

About My Job: What I Do All Day With A Supply Chain Management Degree // CEO in Progress

About My Job: What I Do With My Supply Chain Management Degree

I love when I tell people I work in supply chain. They give you that look like ‘ohhh I know what you’re talking about’ but also have no idea what you’re talking about. Which I get; supply chain as itself is a broad term. For anyone unfamiliar, supply chain means the process of getting something […]

Monday Motivation: Creating Habits & Routines

It’s been a long time since I posted a Monday motivation post. I love taking time on Mondays to think about what my goals are for the week as I’m planning out our schedule and how I’m going to achieve them. I used to always think it was motivation that was the key, but after […]
