Random thoughts on a snowy January morning:
1. It snowed here in Texas this morning. I know, right? It only lasted for 7 minutes and I did see actual flakes. But now it’s gone. I put a video up on Instagram stories and Facebook stories if you want to see what a snowstorm in Texas looks like.
2. Since the twins started driving I got this app for my phone that follows them wherever they go.
The only challenge?
They can FOLLOW ME.
And when I’m running late and I’m leaving for somewhere they can TOTALLY SEE WHEN I ACTUALLY LEAVE.
I’m literally unsubscribing.
3. It was an amazing week on the blog. I showed you how I organized my pantry and we discussed the retreat that I’m hosting in Waco and we talked about not getting overwhelmed and how to declutter 20 minutes at a time and how to make a builder door look custom for under $20 and I told you I was worried I was going to get left behind.
4. But in amazing news? Next week is going to be even more fun.
Here’s what we are doing next week:
- Monday: A Valentine’s craft from the Dollar Store along with 4 other Valentine’s Day craft ideas
- Tuesday: My top 10 SIMPLE cleaning tips
- Thursday: Winter decorating ideas in the butler’s pantry
- Friday: Decorating the staircase with vintage mirrors
- Saturday: Thistlekeeping
5. My doorknobs are getting here today and I’m so excited. (I literally can’t believe I just typed that sentence.)
