In vs. Out

Happy Friday! Lately, the days seem to run together, but I can still appreciate the start of the weekend. Spending most of the mornings in Starbucks to draft blog posts and apply for jobs have become my new norm--and I'm not complaining. It's actually quite refreshing!


Getting to sleep late

Spending all day with my puppy-child

The weather
(it doesn't really feel like fall, but it hasn't rained in a week and a half and it's been beautiful!)

Thinking about taking Helene's newest webinar


Getting laid off

The job search
(For example: I'll type in marketing and jobs like "nurse" and "chef" come up)

Daytime TV

  (if you saw my snap chat--add me "aellzey"--last night, I literally just washed everything I own and now I have to put it all away--the worst)


And, in case you missed it, here's what was popular on Because I Said So this week:


  1. What's it like to sleep late? I've forgotten since having my son. ;-)

  2. Sleeping late...I wish my body would know how to do that. I wake up at 7 am even on the weekends and days where my mother in law has my kids and I can sleep in all I want.

  3. Yay for fashion posts and sleeping in! I'm hoping to catch up on a lot of shooting for the blog during this long weekend. :-)

  4. I agree, I'm so glad the rain has finally stopped and that we've gotten some sun this week!

  5. Have a good weekend!!! I'm really looking forward to mine. It's Homecoming for us! Good Luck on your job search! Sleep....what is that?

    xoxo Dani

  6. Job searching is never fun! Hoping you find a great job for you. I'll have to add you on snapchat, I'm obsessed with it.

  7. Job hunting is really wretched, you just have to keep smiling and staying positive! Have a great weekend girl <3

  8. I can't wait to sleep in this weekend!

  9. You should def do Helene's ecourse/webinar! I signed up and I'm so hype for it. Hope you have a great weekend!

  13. I'm doing major loads of laundry too and sometimes I just run the dryer once more to avoid folding the clothes for another hour. I am the ultimate lazy.

  14. Sorry to hear that you got laid off, I'm sure you'll find a new job in no time! And at least it's a nice change of pace to be able to sleep in, enjoy it while you can.


  15. Getting to sleep in late is awesome -- which is something I haven't done in forever. I'm always working and at school during the week, so I wake up super early! And I work all weekend, every weekend. But I FINALLY have tomorrow off -- which means I get to sleep in and I could not be more excited!

  16. Doing huge hauls of laundry is the worsttttt!

  17. you should totally take my new course! it's not just a webinar. it's an actual course with modules + a live webinar!

  18. I wish I could sleep in late again. That would be great! I just signed up for Helene In Between course and I am so excited about it! I just did her last webinar and it was great.

  19. Sorry you're laid off & going through a job search babe. It's like a job in itself trying to find a new one - best of luck! x Nicole |
