So there is this thing I do. Every time I go somewhere - when I return back home, I take all my clothes off immediately. I feel free. like taking your bra off after a long day or laying down after standing all day. It’s a habit. But sadly I struggle at cleaning up after myself. .
I’m kind of a slob 🙈 I am not the best house wife. The clothes you see on the floor is mild to what it usually looks like in here. The bedroom always has clothes on the floor. When I make dinner, I leave the dirty dishes til the next morning when I know the hubs will clean it. .
There aren’t any excuses, just the truth. I’m a creative and sometimes to relieve stress or to get out of a creative slump- I’ll clean and organize. But daily tidying is hard. .
Today was a rest day because #doms - aka INTENSE muscle soreness from these awesome #alexiaclark workouts 😬🔥😆❤️. Decided to channel my normal workout energy into #housewifelife by cleaning the kitchen (well most of it anyway- the whole thing would take days!). Not bad for a couple hours of work! Thanks again for the inspo @nikkigundy & @mrshinchhome_x_ 😀
It’s tough to survive in culture, which is conservative and rigid minded. Stereotypes and myths restrict boundaries more strongly, bcz there is so called “logic” behind the scene. Islamic notion also manipulated to make decisions about a girl’s freedom and thus again, life surrounds by worries. Typical society blame a woman, whenever she does something good for herself!! -so just be confident and make Right decisions for yourself-
My husband is using his engineer powers to help me troubleshoot our deng vacuum cleaner. Saaya is trying so hard to figure out what this giant lifeless beast is that growls so loudly at her humans.
I always make sure to vacuum when Trevor can hang out in bedroom with her, because she will fearlessly try to save us from the angry robo-beast. As annoying as it can be, it's kinda cute how she will courageously try to take the vacuum from your hands to save you from it.
In Trevor's words, "it would be meritous were it not so stupid." She doesn't understand, but she's trying her best 💜💙💚 #saaya#doggo#pitmix#vacuumbeast#husbandbeingrad#housewifeproblems#dogproblems
All this smoke is no fun. I can’t even go out shopping. I guess I’ll just have to stay in and do a diamond fashion show for myself. I mean, how else am I supposed to fill my time?
Do you have a catch all place in your house? A perpetual junk pile?
Unfortunately for me, it's my dining room table and it drives me insane!
Every time I get it under control, it seems to creep back faster than the last time! 😲
How do you deal with your junk?
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 🦄💖🦄💖🦄
