New house = new projects! I really love being able to do stuff myself or brag that my husband can pretty much do anything! But then I'm like oh am I bragging in a bad way? Can one brag in a good way?! I mean I'm so proud that my hubs is super handy! #housewifeproblems#humblebrag#isithough#homeimprovement
So long story short. My new good food processor broke...don’t ask, but I’ll tell you that it involved frozen ham chunks and my dumbass😑 so I was forced to buy the 40 year old behemoth from the thrift store and it has 7 million parts. But it was only $6 so I’m dealing...,,,kinda.
Because I “portray” myself as a “sexy bad ass chick”. Here’s me in my natural habitat. Ripped racer back, leggings, and a baseball hat... it’s LITERALLY what I wear everyday if I’m not in uniform. Instagram can be so deceiving, people think because I have a lot of followers, “Insta famous” (I hate that term btw), a lot of likes, that I live some lavish life and I’m all of a sudden better than anyone else or intimidating. Quite the contrary! It’s a rare occasion I dress up unless I know I need to be presentable, I drive a beat up POS because saving money is a priority and if it gets me from point A to point B, I’m good. Huge social life? Negative ghost rider. I go to work, go to the gym, go home. Off time, I’m cleaning or catching up on stuff I couldn’t during the week. I’m literally as square as they come 🤷🏼♀️ So before you go thinking someone has this glamorous life, know that what you see on social media doesn’t even skim the surface.
I made it before the end of the month, super happy about that. 👊Next thing is to actually put it in the mail and send. 💌📫 Is the 3rd floor really that far away? 🤔 Hope you like this one @shannonquilts It goes a little overboard on texty prints, but I love them as much as a fussy cuts. Heather Ross and ducks😉 Who doesn’t love that?!? Also, a little cotton and steel to wind it down. I am really loving this #pinkquiltbee2018 Now, for some house work. There’s always things to clean up around here. #housewifeproblems
Last night my husband and I collaborated to make an awesome menu-plan and grocery list for the week. But, somewhere between our house and the grocery store we got sidetracked and ended up at a local Japanese restaurant. We never went grocery shopping. This was cool last night (because we had Japanese for dinner), however, it's very uncool today, because we have absolutely no food in the house. Face-palm moment.
Living your #bestlife .... what does that mean to you?
For so long I fought the idea of being a stay at home mom equaling “My Best Life” but you know what .... this right here is my happy place!!
As our family transitions from an Active Duty Family to a Family With a Retired Veteran it dawned on me 😍
All I wanted as a kid was ROOTS 🌳 we moved 7 times when I was growing up living ALL over Florida! So I have always wanted to call a town My HomeTown & have a place for my kids to call theirs! I wanted a ‘boring’ life to tend to my yard, grill, go on hikes, keep my floors clean, bake for my family and have memories around ever corner of my house and town!
We FINALLY have that!!!!
So as I sit here and look at 3 piles of linens to be folded and put away, floors that are drying I also realize just how blessed I am because I am truly living my best life!
So don’t get caught up in what OTHERS tell you is a better life ... learn to appreciate the NOW and realize just what you long for 🦄💖🦄💖🦄
I promise to only eat one (stack) of doughnuts for National Doughnut Day... Only a handful of doughnuts, really. Actually, it's kinda hard to eat a doughnut with @zoesaldana's Women's Health cover staring at me... I don't wanna let Uhura / Gamora down...
So..... I, uh, umm.... Well, I broke the windows cleaning them last week.
I tipped window number 1 in, cleaned it, put it back in the frame, and tried to close it. The top pane kept dropping. I got fed up, managed to get it latched, and moved on to window number 2. Same thing. I broke both front windows.
"It's a window," I thought, "how complicated can it be? I should be able to do this on my own!"
After a few days of ignoring it, I went back today. I don't know what I thought would be different, but I gave it another shot. Same thing, took the pane out, put it back, and it kept dropping.
Then I just happened to look up. Lo and behold, a clear cleaning instruction label had been placed inside the top track. Apparently you have to push the top pane down to engage the mechanism. I would never have tried that on my own. But now I did, and my front windows work again!
When we keep trying the same thing over and over again, we'll get the same results. The "window" will stay broken. When we look up, and follow the clear instructions our God has for us, the "window" will get fixed. Not the way we expected it to be, necessarily, but the way it was meant to be fixed.
Next time you are stumped? Look up.
My husband always wonders why I want to be the one to do the grocery shopping and this is a good example of why. I told him to grab a couple of the Kroger meal kits because I love how easy and yummy they are when he is at work and I'm alone. They help me stay on a decent diet when I'm alone instead of eating frozen meals or prepared foods. I told him I didn't care which one he got because generally I'm not very picky and love trying new things. So what did he do? He literally grabbed two of them without even looking at what they were and got the one meal I absolutely cannot stand to eat. And he knows how against kale I am! Jerk chicken and kale? 😩 Please no! Now I'm stuck with it and not pleased! I think the only thing on this plate that I like is the mango salsa. But I'm starving and I won't let it go to waste. Oh well lol at least it's low calorie and healthy 🤷♀️ #lookonthebrightside#ifyouwantsomethingdoneright#housewifeproblems#jerkchicken#mangosalsa#kale#dinner
FOUR | these have been sitting on my bathroom counter for about 36 hours now. 😬 I have been trying to get it clean but there are 2 little people who are far cuter than this bathroom and need my attention! I really do try to be a good housekeeper but I am the worst housewife ever. EVER!!! 💁🏼 This is my real! #7daysofreal I honestly have ZERO idea how to keep my children alive and happy AND keep my house clean at the same time. PS who doesn’t love the @mrsmeyerscleanday cleaning line?#thestruggleisreal#housewifeproblems#motherhood#motherhoodunpluggled
Spent all day cleaning the kitchen, living room, and dining room because little black ants have made their appearance all over the living room floor. Everything was swept, killed, swept again, and then swept again after some dirt got tracked in. Dishes were done, counters all cleaned, and surfaces wiped down. With blisters on my hands and a clean down stairs it was time for bed. I went into the bathroom and discover Sammi has pooped in the tub. That was cleaned up, as was her litter box. I'm going to bed for real this time. If there are any more messes someone else can clean them or they will wait until morning lol. #cleaninginjuries#cleaning#housewifeproblems#toomuchsweeping#stupidants
Obožavam da kuvam i to radim gotovo svakog dana sa velikom ljubavlju, ali za druge. Uvijek volim isprobavati neka nova jela, osim kada ostanem sama kod kuće. E tada se osjećam kao Milorad Krušica, jer na suprugovo pitanje šta ću jesti tog dana, uvijek odgovorim "Da ako se nadje po nešto". Naravno za te dane samoće imam poseban "Lonely" meni koji se sastoji od pet jela. Na prvom mjestu, zaista neprevazidjena mi je #Popmie instant supa, za koju je potrebno samo 200 ml ključale vode i nakon 2 minuta, ručak je spreman. Na drugom mjestu su kokice (gotove naravno), a na trećem keks od kokosa, koji je uz sve to i posan, pa mi je to ručak petkom. Na četvrtom je svakako tost sa sirom i kečapom, ali mi se malo smučio nakon što sam ga jela 14 dana za redom, a kad me smara da idem do prodavnice, jedem tost sa kečapom i zamišljam da ima sira i vjerovali ili ne, urodi plodom. I na petom mjestu je specijalitet kuće, koji pravim kada želim nešto konkretno da pojedem, a to je svakako kajgana. Od svega mi je zapravo najvažnija kafa, posebno volim ovu koja ne mora da se kuva, već se muti sa toplom vodom. 🤷🏻♀️Na kraju kad se sve sabere, hvala Bogu pa ne živim sama duže od 10 dana.
