I’ve been waiting for this weekend for six months. It’s the weekend of my sister’s baby shower. There will be lots of adorable decorations, mini treats and onesies for decorating! I’ll have a post up about it soon. My friend Jacqui is coming down for the shower (and staying for the weekend) and I’ve got dinner with Christian’s Mom and sisters on Sunday. So much good stuff I can hardly stand it!
Here are a few of my favorites from this week:
I love Lucille Ball. Growing up I could not watch enough of her — I Love Lucy, The Long Trailer, Yours, Mine and Ours — each of them on repeat all the time. In elementary school I even wanted to have an I Love Lucy birthday party with her episodes playing on repeat. As I got a little older, I remember finding out that Lucille and Desi had divorced and it broke my little heart, no more Lucy and Ricky. Finding out, today, that Lucille Ball was so miserable at the end of her career, and her life, makes me so so sad.
Our house is not home. Not even close actually. Trying to figure out how to fit our current furniture/items into what I want is proving to be a touch harder than I originally envisioned. Sigh, isn’t that always the case. Seeing these floating shelves that OkayBA put together makes me want slap some up in our family room. Christian’s “build this” list is growing each week… I can assure you that he’s very excited.
One of the harder things about eating healthy is that you end up cutting out a lot of convenience foods and have to spend a little more time pre-planning and prepping what you eat. That’s probably why this recipe for slow cooker, All-In-One Crockpot Chicken + Rice + Brussel Sprouts caught my attention. Hello, yummy/easy dinner.
Crap. I collect it. So does Christian (though I maintain that he’s worse than I am). If you looked at last week’s Finally Friday post, you’d notice that “Simplicity” has been a bit of a theme for me lately. This article on Living With Less. A Lot Less. just pushed me a little further in that direction. If you need me I’ll be knee-deep in donate piles.
I thought it was really interesting that there’s a correlation between people making their bed and their level of happiness. Who knew?
