weekly photo dump {November - week two}

From left to right:
1.  I am really glad to be blogging again, even if it is very minimal right now.  Thank you to all who stop by to read my posts :)
2.  We have had a few cold days (Texas cold is similar to Arizona cold), so I made a big pot of soup.  I LOVE soup!!  It is like a hug in a bowl.
3.  I finally got a new pair of Converse.  Just in the nick of time, since I stepped in dog poop with my old ones last week.  I am trying to convince Mike to clean them for me.  They are outside at the moment.
4.  Flooring started this week.  A day later than we thought, but it started.  I am hoping it will be done by mid week next week.  But you know how that goes...
5.  I will be so glad to get all the stuff that has been stored in my dinning room, put away!!  If you know me, you know this is driving me BONKERS!!
6.  It has been that kind of week, that I pulled out the candy and kept it on my desk!  Super busy at work and ready for February when it slows down again.
7.  We have been hanging out in our bedroom to watch TV at night, since everything is a hot mess in our house, of course all the pets join us.
8.  I saw this on Instagram this week and it resonated with me, as I try to keep a good attitude through all the trials of life.
9.  Picked up my photos at Costco (we decided to get some Pizza while we were there) for my December Daily project from 2012...Yes, five years ago, I never finished it.  It was fun looking through all the photos from back then.  I am excited to get it completed as well as start one for 2017.  

Enjoy Today!

weekly photo dump - {November - week one}



From left to right:
1.  I found an old December Daily album that I started working on (I think in 2013?).  I am super excited to locate those photos and put this thing together.  It has also inspired me to do one this year.  Stay tuned on that...
2.  Poor Kodi had to have a mole removed and also got his teeth cleaned last week.  I love that dog so much!!! 
3.  YES, I went to Target on Saturday to check out the launch of Chip & Joanna's new Hearth & Home line.  I have heard mixed reviews, but I really liked it, and got in on some retail therapy.
4.  After our Target run, Mike and I went to Costco.  I can never get out of there for under $200.  But frozen yogurt always makes me feel better.
5.  Josh started a new job this week.  He will be building custom cabinets, I am so happy he is doing something he enjoys.
6.  Doors arrived this week...and Mike installed them all (except for 2 that were the wrong size).
7.  These are my favorite shoes, they have seen better days!  They have been through all the flood craziness with me. They are in desperate need of washing!! 
8.  I am so happy that we have a Sprouts nearby!!  I went and stocked up on all of my favorites.
9.  Mike picked up our flooring on Thursday.  Fingers crossed our contractor can start installing it next week...but you know how that goes.  


Enjoy Today!!

weekly photo dump {October - week five}

Happy Friday!!!


From left to right:
1.  Mike started painting last weekend (and will hopefully finish with paint this weekend).  Our next project...hanging 18 doors (that are being delivered on Monday).
2.  We have been eating out more than we normally do, since we work most of the weekend and it is just easier.  We went to one of Mike's favorite spots...James Coney Island.  For all my CT peeps, we think it is a close match to Nikki'e Dog House.
3.  This is my current weekend look.  
4.  My office/coworkers participate in the Phoenix Breast Cancer Walk every year.  My sweet daughter in law, Jess, heads it up.  I am always there in spirit!!!  It makes my heart so happy to see these two!!  They know first hand what cancer is all about.  Go JOSH!!
5.  My Dyson died last week.  So I had to purchase a new vacuum.  To be honest, I don't think the Dyson is all it is cracked up to be.  I am back to Shark.  
6.  Found this at my grocery store this week...I am not a big egg nog lover, but Mike is.  
7.  Now that the sheet rock and texture are complete, I can actually start cleaning.  Can I just say...so.much.dust.EVERYWERE!!!!  I emptied out all my kitchen cabinets, washed everything and wiped down the inside and outside.  It makes my OCD heart happy to see things sparkle again.  I mean, who wouldn't want a drink from a dusty glass?
8.  Sometimes I want to be Pete.  He has the life!!!
9.  I am in the process of scrapping the hurricane.  I LOVE using the digital Project Life products!!  Becky provided a free Documenting Disasters Kit for Free (linked HERE).  I will be sharing my pages in the next few weeks.  

Enjoy Today!
