Welcome to another fabulous Friday! Today I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite things with you. It’s a little bit of anything and everything… a lot like me!
This week has been a busy one around here as I attempt to move into my new pantry. Well not literally “move in,” but I’ve been moving all the food in there. It’s a slow process for me. Doing anything that requires organization with kids is not easy. I am extremely indecisive, and I really don’t want to have to redo it if I don’t like how I organized it. So I am really trying to be practical. Here’s what I’ve done so far, and I think I like it. I’ll show you pictures of the whole room with more detail once I finish it. The other side has cabinets, a desk, and a countertop.
These baskets were my favorite things to use in my pantry. I found myself wishing I had bought more of them. I found them here at The Container Store.
I am in love with my new Erin Condren Life Planner. It took me a while to break down and get one just because I was pretty set in my ways with my old planner. But then I couldn’t find my old planner anywhere, so I started looking at these Life Planners. I chose the vertical layout and customized the front with fun family photos. I really love it! I have to write down EVERYTHING or it won’t get done. Tell me I’m not alone!
Ummm…I think Downton Abbey is my favorite show I’ve ever watched in my entire life! I was a little late to the party considering it’s been on a long time, but trust me I caught up! I heard so many good things about it. I ordered the DVD set so I could pass it along to my mom and sister. But you can watch it on Amazon. In fact, I watched one episode on there first before ordering the DVD set to make sure I liked it. It took me a few episodes to get accustomed to the heavy British accents, but now I can understand them just fine 🙂 When I hear the music, I could almost cry because I love the show so much! I love shows based on history, and this era is so interesting. I’m so glad I decided to sit down and watch it that day. Right now Season 6 (the last one) is on Sunday nights.
On Wednesday, we received some happy mail! We are taking a big family road trip this summer, and my in-laws sent us some Colorado brochures. They moved there about a year ago. We can’t wait! It’s 11 days, 2 adults, 4 kids, and 1 minivan! Are we crazy? I just know that I was so interested in seeing the whole country when I was a kid. I definitely want my own children to be able to experience this!
Hope you guys have a fabulous Friday! See you tomorrow with the Weekly Family Meal Plan!
