I should clarify. I bought the materials for him to make it.
I informed him tonight that he should start a DIY blog.
I didn’t get a whole lot of a response so I am going to assume he is starting that as we speak. Obvs.
That means “obviously” for all of you people who are above abbreviating words.
You totes know who you know.
Anyhow, all of this manual labor talk reminds me of a chant that my father started for our cheer block back in High School. It went like this “NUTS AND BOLTS NUTS AND BOLTS…WE GOT SCREWED!”
To be yelled after the ref made a sucky call. Obvs.
Take that chant to your nearest sporting event. And if that one doesn’t tickle your fancy try
“ELEVATOR ELEVATOR WE GOT THE SHAFT!”
Props to my father on that one as well.
Oh hey–remind me sometime to tell you where that coffee table is going.
And no, it’s not on top of the hammock.
More on that later though…for I have something way more important to share with you.
Not that high school chants, DIY coffee tables, and their mystery location aren’t important but…..yeah.
You may have seen me talk about Speak Now before on this blog.
Well, it’s because I think it’s amazeballs. The founder. The organization. What they stand for.
It’s just SO good (said in my best Sophia Rose and Gracie voice).
Please read below and see how you can get involved.
Our generation thanks you.
Once upon a time, I had an idea that would forever change the way I looked at my life. An idea to love more, believe more, trust more, be more, and do more. Not for just anyone or anything but instead for a generation that just so happens to be my own. My name is Ellie Coburn. I’m sixteen years old from southern California and Speak Now is where my story begins. Speak Now is an official non-profit organization for young women empowerment. Speak Now is my non-profit.
Separate from my team, I am a dreamer. Together, we are an innovative, collaborative, and passionate group of women with the unshaken belief that every young woman deserves respect, admiration, and recognition for their inner and outer beauty. It is our mission to give voice to young women who remain silenced in the fear of rejection. We teach the importance of self-love, self-respect, and self-compassion.
We are in the day and age of make believe.A culture that has devalued our own self-worth in efforts to create a fictional perfect is ever-present in all that we read, watch, and see. A culture that wants more than it gives. A culture of unrealistic weight goals, emotional expectations, and devalued truths about ourselves affect our everyday decisions, lifestyle choices, and ability to connect.
“I have put my entire soul into the spark that Speak Now has put a match to because of these issues.
With commitment to the young women that we surround ourselves with, let’s ignite fire.”
It’s time to love the skin we’re in. It’s time to be happy in our own beautiful ever after. Because my heart and all those like it, are ready for change.
At this time, I would like to invite you to join us on us on our mission via our interactive online website. We are, like many of you, a day-by-day lifestyle website. You can keep up with our mission here. Be sure to “like” us on Facebook to donate a dime to the Speak Now organization.I hope you’ll check us out!
Founder and creator of LIY, Erin turned her dream of a hobby blog into a full-time career which she now runs alongside the LIY team! When not in front of her computer screen [with a La Croix or wine in hand] or in front of a mirror taking mirror selfies, you can find Erin spending time on the water, cuddled up with her two pups and husband most likely watching the latest Shark Tank episode, or getting lost in an easy beach read.
The wonderful world of meal delivery services. Also known as, the easiest way to whip up delicious meals in a short amount time, no grocery runs required. I’m sure you have heard of several different brands of dinner boxes, meal delivery services, whatever you want to call it [I prefer “those kits that magically appear […]
If there’s one thing the LIY Team did this Summer [besides go for boat rides and drink seltzers] – it was read. Audio books, Kindle editions, good old fashion physical copies… you name it, we read it. While we went through a few that weren’t so great, we did find a few worth passing along! […]
