Jumping on the ABC Bandwagon

Hiya! It’s almost the weekend! 😀 I hope you’re having a great day so far! So I’ve got to tell you about my second night of the 8 PM rule (I promise this won’t be a daily update). After class I knew I couldn’t come home and “unwind” by checking my email or blog or Facebook so when I saw that I missed a call from my very good friend, Danielle, I was thrilled to call her back! All that technology stuff makes me feel like I’m busy, but I’m actually not. It was so great to catch up with her!

Also, I can’t tell you the last time I slept so soundly. I mean, no weird dreams (which I usually have), no tossing and turning. I was well-rested and ready to go before my alarm went off! I think this is 100% related to not watching crime shows until I pass out or just reading junk on Facebook before crawling into bed. Verrrry interesting.. 🙂

Okay, so I thought I’d mix up our morning routine if that’s okay with you 😉 I first saw this ABC thingy on Julie’s blog – then on Courtney’s – then on Gracie’s – and I think it’s a great idea! I love learning about the bloggers that I follow daily. Maybe you do too? So, this is just for fun! Enjoy 🙂
