Stylin’, profilin’ and simplifyin’…

Recently I mentioned that I got my hair cut. So for those of you who haven't seen me in awhile, some pictures to show this transformation. I do want to make the disclaimer that neither of these pictures are the best look at it, but I just don't ever remember to take pictures of my hair. So these will have to do… 
Not only am I stylin' these days, I am simplifin'! Haha! Starting in February I just started feeling like way too much was going on, I had way to much to do, and I had too much to keep up with. Do you guys ever feel like that?? I think I go through this process several times a year... actually maybe it always happens right at the change of seasons... hum. Anyhow, something had to give. So I cut my hair, because this hair cut is easier. It takes less time to wash and dry, I only have a few options of fixing it, and it looks cute without alot of fuss. I love it. 

What else did I do to simplify? Well, I spent a week or so not reading any blogs or writing any. I needed to see if it was something I really just needed to cut out of life, or if it was something that truly brought me joy or relaxed me etc... turns out it was the latter ;)! But at the end of that time I realized that I followed A BUNCH of blogs, some of which I could just care less what they had to say but I felt the need to read anyways. There were some that I liked, but I just could never get caught up on. And there were some I was following for "later on"... parenting blogs, couponing blogs etc. 

So I bookmarked all the "later on" blogs and purged! I unsubscribed to 30 or 40 blogs. It felt good. And I reorganized my beloved google reader. I now only have four categories of blogs: people blogs (blogs about life from people I know or feel like I know), food blogs (love new recipes!), helpful blogs (moneysavingmom, simplemom etc), and home decor (cant live without my young house love!). And I have gone a step further, I only feel the NEED (you blog readers know what I mean right, the "i absolutely have to read these today" need?? I am not alone am I?) to read the people blogs. The others are there for whenever I have time. Yes the unreads are piling up... but I am not caring. I am not missing out. 

I know its teh time for Spring Cleaning, but isnt it funny that even "cyberspace clutter" can need to be purged?? So thats how I am stylin, profilin and simplifin these days....

Have you done any Spring purging yet??
