Good afternoon!! It’s been a good day, not too much going on. A little sleeping in, a little clean up, grocery shopping, and now prepping a pot roast for dinner. It’s 90 outside, but nothing like comfort food on a Sunday to make you feel good.
It’s been a semi hectic week here. I didn’t get much reading done, sadly and I didn’t write one book review post …ugh. I spent one morning visiting Rebecca, former book blogger at Love at First Book. Her twin boys are eight months old and so adorable. We became friends over books, and I’ve really enjoyed watching her become an amazing mom. My son begins his senior year of high school on Wednesday so last week we shopped a little and he got a hair cut and we’ll pick up some supplies this week. Hard to believe in just a year he’ll be starting college.
This week my twin girls will celebrate their 22nd birthday(8/12). One graduated from college, the other in her last year. Neither will be home and they won’t be together. I’m not emotional about it, but I just hope they think of each other, and we will have time with each of them later this week.
My new obsession is my Erin Condren Life Planner, not only do I use it to plan and organize my week, but I decorate it using colored pens, stickers etc. It’s a little like scrapbooking and journaling your life, mixed with a calendar. Etsy is filled with stickers to feed my addiction and Pinterest, YouTube, FaceBook, and Instagram are resources for ideas and like minded planner addicts. I don’t think it will overtake books, shoes, makeup or handbags in my list of collections, but it’s certainly fun right now.
Speaking of handbags…well I am now, while shopping with my daughter in Vera Bradley we entered for a drawing and I won a large Vera Tote bag….so fun!! Their stores were celebrating their founder’s birthday and we also received a black quilted wristlet with room for a phone etc. I was so excited, I never win! Caitie bought what she is calling her first grown up handbag, a nice leather VB bag in navy with black trim. She’s growing up.
I’m ready for school to begin, and our routines to return a bit. With having a grown looking for job college grad home the house will still not be empty daily, but I believe it will be more peaceful and I love to be in my house, doing my thing. I enjoy the quiet to read, write, cook, whatever I choose or need to do.
Wishing you a week of what makes you happy!!!
