NOT ON TARGET
It's a short week for me this week and I've been looking forward to it for awhile. Zach Rowell's *gulp* 31st birthday is tomorrow so I decided to take the day off with him for a long weekend and then thought, what the heck, I'll go ahead and take Thursday off too! :) Today has been the BEST weather day so far!! Some people may disagree with me that the best day off consists of not sleeping in(Which I did not. I was up before 7.) and a cold rainy day(It's chilly, raining and dreary and it's perfect!) Phoebe and I snuggled in bed this morning just listening to the rain tap on the roof. I really didn't want to get out of bed but I couldn't waste my day.
I had all intentions of getting myself ready and heading to Hobby Lobby to check out some scrapbook stuff but instead I found myself cleaning the toilets which led to cleaning the whole bathroom which led to doing laundry which led to no trip to Hobby Lobby. It's probably for the best because that place just gets me in trouble!! Too many neat things live there that just need a home :)
I did, however, take me a little trip to Target and I found the neatest "Command Center". I've been looking for ideas on Pintreset (Holy cow! So addicted!! ) on ways to organize the mail that comes into this house. I started with a basket on my kitchen table that seemed to collect things like keys and sunglasses and pretty much just junk. My basket "Command Center" failed. I was reading in one of my magazines that a great way to keep your mail neat and hidden in the kitchen was to put it in a bread box. Genius! What a perfect idea. Well, guess what? I don't know if they even make the old school roll down front ones any more. Wal*Mart didn't have any and Target had one but it was silver and little and dumb. My heart may have dropped a little bit. I was really hoping to find me a bread box.
So, I bought this thing from Target that has a dry erase/magnet board, 4 little drawers, a mail slot and some hooks for keys. It was awesome! And only 30 bucks! I think God eliminated all bread boxes so that I could find this amazing creation! Right? Not exactly! When I got it home I discovered that the dry erase/magnet board was all warped and awful looking. Guess what's going back to Target tomorrow? And also the cute little eraser and dry erase marker set I got. Oh, well. Not meant to be. I now have a little $6 basket I found at Wal*Mart that I think will corral all my mail. Let's hope other crap doesn't wind up in there.
I've been on an organizing kick lately and I blame Pinterest. So many dang good ideas on there! The past few weeks I have made myself put my ipad down and Go.To.Sleep! Hopefully in the next few months (maybe before the first of the year) my house will be where it needs to be. Right now it makes me sick to look at some areas because it's Out Of Control. I'm about to tackle my pantry so if anyone has any good ideas for that let me know. It's just a basic closet pantry. It's not very big so I need to make the best use of my space. Help me out.
Anyone watching Hart of Dixie? The new Monday night show on the CW? It's really cute and I'm a fan of Rachel Bilson. She is so cute and has the cutest style on the show. If you haven't checked it out yet maybe you should give it a try.
I know this post is skipping around worse than a sun warped record but that's kind of how my mind feels. I just have a busy weekend and then after Halloween I plan on getting my butt in gear and dropping some pounds. I'm the best at coming up with an awesome eating/working out plan but the WORST at following through with it. I'm that person that looks at the doughnut and says, "I'll start tomorrow." Well, too many tomorrow's have made my pants a little tight today. Something's got to give and I know it's food. It's my weakness cause it just tastes so friggin good!! One of these days I will stick to a program and hopefully November 1st will be that day. Wish me luck! Until then I'm going to celebrate my husby's birthday on Friday with a concert at Cain's Ballroom and on Saturday it's the annuall Halloween party at my brothers. My sister and I are going as Wayne and Garth from Wayne's World. We are going for the cute girly versions so let's all pray that works out and we don't look like a couple of dudes that no one has a clue who we are.
Happy Halloween to all of you!! Stay safe and warm!!
