Tuesday reminder that while not everything works out the way you want it to, that's totally OK. Some things aren't meant for you and that's totally fine, don't let it drag you down. For example, the bra I wore today...no longer for me, apparently, since the hooks all exploded at once & I was forced to roast to death in a thick cardigan until my lunch break so that the public couldn't tell the ladies were loose 🤦 I went to Target hoping desperately to find a new replacement and everything worked out, but man was that an adventure I'd never like to repeat 😂 #keepinitreal
Friday feels 🥰 Those mums are dead now, and even if they weren't, they would be tomorrow. Tonight mark the first frost according to the forecast, following a huge wind and thunderstorm all day. I will be on my couch with ghost cookies, leftover Chili's, and a glass of wine if anyone needs me 😂
Picked up this little candle at @worldmarket when we were on vacation & it's my new favorite! Oh how I miss out local World Market sometimes 😭 Eucalyptus and mint have been my go-to scent for the bathroom lately, and for $4 this little guy fit the bill. It's the perfect clean, relaxing scent for quiet rainy nights in the tub (or for when Aaron has too many Pizza Rolls, and we need to clear the air 😷😝). Also this photo just made me realize I desperately need to clean off my pothos leaves... 😬 Brb, gonna go do that now
Back to real life (and death) tomorrow at the office...but at least I have a well-timed dentist appointment in the afternoon, so it's only a partial day 😜 It was nice knowing ya, sandy cheeks. 🐿
Just a few more hours until my work vacation starts & I'm packing up to get back to Florida for a hot (and humid) minute. 🏝 Let the shenanigans begin 😎
Finally switched out our porch sign back to the original! 🍁 I really need to just buy more rope so I don't have to unscrew the rope & eyes every year, but let's be honest... Here Comes the Sun has been up since the first day of spring, and I never even made the Summertime & the Livin's Easy side 😂 I have another 6 more than before I'll have to unscrew the fall/winter sign, so I've got time 🍂🍃
He may have escaped to poop in someone else's yard, peed on his new couch, and eaten my flip flop this week, but he's still cute 🙄 And I guess the plus side is that he forced me into figuring out how to get dried urine stains out of upholstery, so I'm sure that'll be useful someday. 😂 If you have pets or kids, and furniture in need of help, I have the cleaning solution in Carl's highlight over on my page; I do suggest some kind of cleaner attachment though if at all possible, especially on white furniture!
Things that need to be fixed in this photo: 🛠 There's a paint drip on the molding from like 2.5 years ago 🛠 There's a paint drop on the white cabinet (also from 2.5 years ago), amongst a ton of scratches, dings, and stains 🛠 The plant in the corner is still in the original bland plastic pot 🛠 There's a soot stain on the wall behind the pot from an old candle 🙄🙄🙄 But you know what? It'll get fixed when it gets fixed 😂 these things don't get in the way of me using this bathroom counter, they're just ugly little details I notice because I live here. Not everything has to be perfect for you to be happy in your home. It just has to work for you & your needs, and if it looks cute doing it, then great! Everyone has at least one spot in their house that could use improving, and that's totally OK. Our townhouse has a LOT of spots that could use improving, but I'm in no rush to fix it all in one fell swoop. Projects take time; don't get so wrapped up in making sure your home is perfect that you forget actually live in it and enjoy it as it is. Life is too short for perfection.
