Guilty Pleasures Part 2

Thursday, April 19, 2018

Hi friends!  I've missed this little space, and I'm sorry for my sporadic blogging.  I hope to be more regular with my posting soon.  This is just such a strange season to navigate, so I'm thankful for those who understand :)

Today I'm linking up with Emily and Lindsay to share my guilty pleasures.  You can see my last guilty pleasures post here--there's some good stuff on there!

Now, when I think of a guilty pleasure, I really just think of something that I really enjoy and find happiness in....not so much that I feel guilty in doing it.

1. Eating ice cream out of a coffee cup.
It may be weird to you, but I do not enjoy eating ice cream out of a bowl.  Eating it out of a coffee cup is where it's at because your hand never gets cold holding the cup, and you can feel like you're eating a lot when you really aren't.  I also prefer to eat soup from a coffee cup too--that way you can drink the rest!


2. INSTAGRAM STORIES!!!!!
I really should have made this number one because I'm obsessed.  I could easily waste 20 minutes watching all of the IG stories on my feed.  If I follow someone new who posts pretty pictures but their IG stories are boring, I unfollow immediately.  I was never really into snapchat, so I was really glad IG started stories.  It got even better when everyone else started using IG stories, so now I feel like I really know some famous bloggers because of their stories.


3. Really good cookies
Cookies are my weakness, but not just any cookie.  I don't like my cookie to be crunchy and hard.  I want it to be soft and chewy.  Dustin and I recently tried a new-to-us cookie place in downtown Homewood and I felt like I had died and gone to Heaven.  It was definitely one of the best cookies I have ever eaten in my life.  THANK GOODNESS that cookie store isn't near me because I would be very large if it were.


4. Reality TV
Yes, I love it, and yes, I know it's stupid.  I love watching it (not all reality shows, though) because it gives my mind a chance to check out and I don't have to do any critical thinking haha!  My favorites are the Kardashians (I've watched them since season 1 when I had no idea who they were), Real Housewives of NYC/Beverly Hills/OC, Summer House, Southern Charm, Counting On....and some others that I probably just can't think of right now.  


5. Breakfast for dinner
Oh man, do I love eating breakfast for dinner.  Dustin..not so much.  He just recently jumped on the bandwagon but he's still a little cautious.  I could make and eat a bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich or make waffles or pancakes and be so happy a supper time.


6. Christmas movies year-round
Hate on, people, but it makes me happy and I'm going to continue to watch a Christmas movie whenever I want 😜  I watched two Hallmark Christmas movies that I had on the DVR this past Saturday because we had horrible rain all day long.  AND I wasn't sad about being stuck inside all day because I was watching a Christmas movie!


This post was so fun that I'll have to make this a twice a year installment!  I can't wait to check out everyone else's to learn more about people!

Friday Faves!

Friday, April 13, 2018

Happy Friday!  

Today I'm sharing a few of my FAVORITE things with y'all from this week!

 Even though it's spring, the weather here has been pretty up and down.  Saturday night Dustin and I went out for a little bit, and because the temperatures were in the 30s (!!!!!), I had to wear two sweaters!!!

I shared that photo on stories and had a sweet reader comment about my outfit.  It was then that I realized everything I was wearing--minus the boots--was bought during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last year!!!  Anyone already thinking about the sale this year?  I am now!


 We enjoyed a fun night out :)


 Raise your hand if you are all about changing into those comfy clothes when you get home?!  It's one of the highlights of my day ha!  Dustin is so opposite me in that he could lounge around in his jeans and polo/button up top--not me!


 I made Taco Joes this week using some deer meat we have!



I saw this dress on IG yesterday and loved it....until I saw the price.  I was thinking max $200....nope, $600 dollars!


And here's another favorite song of the week for y'all!  Every time I hear this song, I tear up. It's so beautiful and truthful in that no matter what is going on in your life, all you have is Christ and He is all you need.

I hope y'all have a wonderful weekend!  I'll probably be glued to the weather all day tomorrow because we're supposed to have 60+ mph winds, hail, tornadoes, and rain....yuck!  We just had this about a week ago, too.

Spring Cleaning Tips!

Wednesday, April 11, 2018

Happy Wednesday!!  

I'm linking up with Shay to share spring cleaning tips.  Now, I love nothing more than a clean house, but I really hate to spring clean--which is why I want to clean as efficiently as possible.

Whenever our house gets a deep cleaning, Dustin and I do it together--which is helpful!  I hate to admit this, but it's usually only once a year 🙈  And what's even more shocking is that we do our deep cleaning while putting away Christmas decorations.  I mean, why not?  You're house is already chaotic with decorations coming down and you already have to clean up, so we just knock out two birds with one stone.  This past Christmas we were still grieving so I was ready to get the decorations down and be done with it.

We waited to spring clean during my spring break on a day when Dustin was also off, so below I'm sharing some tips with y'all to make your spring cleaning most effective!


  • Take an inventory of your cleaning products first to see what products you're low on or what you need to add or replace before you start cleaning.
  • Make a list of everything that needs to be cleaned.  Mark things off as you complete them.  This not only feels good but you also get to see your list get smaller!
  • If you're cleaning with a partner, you may be able to work on the same item on a list, but just divide it.  Make sense?  For example, when Dustin and I cleaned baseboards, we divided them out by room because neither one of us wanted to clean baseboards alone.
  • Clean room by room.  This helps you stay focused and on task.
  • Play music while you're cleaning!  Or listen to a podcast.
  • Have all of your cleaning products set out along with the cleaning rags.  This keeps you from searching for the cleaning products.

What are some of your favorite cleaning tips?
