Sunday Delight: My Plate is Fullll!

Happy Sunday Everyone!
It has been awhile since I have done a Sunday Delight.  I have started a new project of learning Movie Magic Budgeting software (online) and it has taken me completely away from blogging.  And you know if it was not for audiobooks and my commute I would not even have time for finishing a book at all.  I am adding BEA15 to my plate as well.  Thank God, Monday is a holiday because I am going to wash and pack and get a million things done on Monday.  Tuesday I am going to work, going to get my hair done then off to the airport for my red-eye flight to NYC.  I am too busy to get excited!  Did I mention I am doing a class with a homework assignment due on Tuesday?  My plate is FULL!  So today I have set my timer for one hour and I am going to blog only for ONE SOLID HOUR!  
What are you up to?

Here and Now

Time: 9:36 am (Saturday)
Drinking:  Green Tea with Lemon and Honey (My blogging drink of choice)
Eating: I might make a bowl of cereal later
 Listening To: Bill Withers Radio on Pandora
Watching: TLC's Flea Market Flip.  I love this show!

Reese Witherspoon Lauches Draper James

http://www.draperjames.com/ 
I haven't posted anything about purses (my other love) in a long time.  But when I heard actress Reese Whiterspoon has launched her own line of apparel including bags I just had to check it out.
And let me tell you...
I was shocked!!
