DITL Vlog: Moving Days + Food Haul | Video |


Hello friends! It feels like forever since I have been on here chatting with you guys. We have been so busy with the move. I am so thankful that we are finally in the house and things are beginning to seem normal again. I didn't vlog a ton while everything has been hetic, stressful and busy. Hopefully that will change soon. I did pull out the camera a few times to catch little moments in time. Hope you enjoy!


Apparently in my busy state I never posted my last video which was a quick food haul a week or so before we moved. Here it is in case you missed it. 


I actually should have another food haul for you guys tomorrow. My family has been going crazy trying to get me to the store. But we have made it and I finally have the kitchen together so it's time! 

There has been so much that has been going on from things with the kids, to all the unpacking and setting up house again. I plan on doing some kind of catching up vlog in the coming days...stay tuned and don't forget about the giveaway going on right now as well! I'll see ya tomorrow with a new haul! ♥

Avon Big Daring Mascara Demo, Review & Giveaway + More! :)


Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I am back with a more fun beauty related video, blog post and giveaway! A friend/subscriber Jacqueline sent me some Avon items to test and review. I happily said yes! In the video below I am going to go over a few of the items she sent including demoing the Avon Big Daring Mascara. Here are my thoughts...hope you enjoy! Also there is more information below about the other items she sent along with a fun giveaway sponsored by Jacqueline herself!







This is the Avon Power Serum is by far is my favorite item out of everything she sent me. It feels amazing on the skin. I have used this mostly at night ( I do use moisturizer after ) and when I wake up my skin really does look better.  That was just with a few samples. 

Here's the benefits:

• Anti-aging serum compliments moisturizers to hydrate, smooth, and firm skin
• Advance Boost Technology helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles while increasing skin's natural radiance
• Dramatically improves skin's overall appearance
• Hypoallergenic and non comedogenic
• Allergy-tested and dematologist-tested
• Suitable for sensitive skin

I noticed my skin really looking and feeling better using this serum. It felt firming and my skin felt moisturized and the over all appearance actually changed after one use. I swear. I was shocked at how much my skin really enjoyed this product. 



Jacqueline also sent me a full size Avon Big & Daring Mascara.  This is an interesting mascara because it is a 24 hour formula. Meaning it will stay put for a very long time. 

Here are the benefits: 

• Plumping Complex and innovative creme-gel formula delivers 5x the volume
• Clump-free, smudge-free, flake-free
• Curved brush with mutl-level patented bristles
• Brush captures every lash while sculpting and filling in gaps.
• .338 fl. oz
• Available in Blackest Black, Black, Brown Black
• Hypoallergenic
• Opthalmologist tested
• Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers

This is a wet formula for sure. It has a huge wand with a lot of bristles and as you could see in the video, it really does plump up and lengthen. I think you need to really take you're time when applying this because it is a bit wetter. It does coat every lash and dries rather quick. You will need to use a oil based remover to get this easily off you're lashes. I don't wear my make up that long but it's nice to have a strong mascara that wont smudge or flake. It's not my favorite of all time but it's pretty nice.

Another product I got to try out is one of the Ultra Color Lipsticks in Carnation. She also sent cherry jubilee which was a little to bright for me but a beautiful shade. I personally liked the pinky mauve Carnation. 

Here are the benefits:

• Lip-nourishing formula with Shea Butter, Omega-3 Oil, Arctic Berry and Vitamin E
• Conditions and moisturizes lips
• Over 60 shades
• Chose your finish:  Satin, shimmer & soft matte
• See shade instantly with clear view window packaging
• Designed for every skin tone
• Full coverage lipstick

This color was perfect for me. It glided right on. It didn't feel heavy. I think the color alone is perfect for any time of the year. I did have to reapply it a few times through out the day but with as with any moisturizing lipstick, it didn't do that ugly feathering appearance on my lips. This was another favorite that she sent me!


I got a bunch of samples of Avon's Ultra Sexy Heart Eau de Toilette Spray. However the bottle is super cute! Here's a little more about this scent:

Ultra Sexy Heart will win your heart! Scented like gifts of love—Maraschino cherries, irresistible red rose petals and decadent chocolate marshmallow—this intoxicating floral gourmand will capture the heart. 1.7 fl. oz.

Top Notes: Maraschino Cherry, Mandarin, Blackberry
Mid Notes: Red Rose Petals, Jasmine Petals, Vanilla-Orchid
Bottom/Dry Notes: Chocolate Marshmallow, Benzoin, Australian Sandalwood Oil

I am picky about perfumes. This one however is very spring like. It's very light...not a heavy scent at all. I personally couldn't smell a lot of the rose petals or jasmine but I did smell a lot of the drier notes such as the chocolate marshmallow and sandalwood. I smelled the orchid too. I actually like it a lot. It does smell fresh and light. Perfect for spring and summer. 


She also sent a few samples of the Black Suede Sport cologne for Scott to try out. Here's a little more about this scent. 

The newest fragrance in the Black Suede line. Discover rugged sophistication with Black Suede Sport. An energetic mix of watery citrus, sexy sage, and captivating vetiver that embodies the essence of rugged masculinity with an air of sophistication. The extra inclusion of spices make this 3.4 fl oz bottle of cologne spray a sensual must have for daily use.

This scent seemed to linger all around the house all day. I could smell it on the animals and even on Scott after he got home from a long day's work. I was taken by how good this smelled. I was kinda shocked it was an Avon product. I have paid tons for other colognes for Scott and this one is just as good. This would make a great gift for any man in your life. 

Avon has really stepped up their game in the past few years. Their skincare lines are amazing. All of them from what I can tell. Their makeup is top of the line as well. If you would like to check them out yourself or buy any of the times I shared, go visit Jacqueline! She is a super sweet person and is sponsoring a giveaway for one of you guys! You will receive the same goody box that I did. It's very simple to get entered. This is open to everyone in the US. You must be 18 years old to enter or have your parents permission. Good Luck! 

a Rafflecopter giveaway

These Avon items did get sent to me to review, but all opinions are honest and my own. Thank you so much for Jacqueline for sending them to me. If you have any questions or comments be sure to leave them below. xx

Tuesday Truths


Hello everyone. I hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday. I am back with another edition of Tuesday Truths. Hope you enjoy! 

* Moving back to Indiana makes me wonder about some relationships that I haven't wanted to think about for years. I think I need to remember when people show you who they are...I need to believe them. It makes me nervous.

* I had traffic court this morning. I have never seen anything like it before. To me it seems like the officers were acting like lawyers but they were really nice. The officer who pulled me over twice is a nice guy. I might not like my fines but he was kind. He was nice to my kids the 1st time and really nice to me the 2nd time. And even today, he was kind and dropped a lot of my fees and gave me a little extra time with the move to pay them. I was nervous about going but it was ok and it worked out better than expected. It's a good day! 

* I have 90% of the kitchen packed up. Today I finished up with the spices and other nick nack items but thankfully that job is done. I am thankful for taking this at my own pace. I might have to get moving a little faster this week...the boys are home from school for spring break and their help would be nice. Garage here we come! 

* I lost a important email and I can't get it back. Delete means delete on gmail and that's that. SHIT!!!!

* I think I need to buy one more load of boxes and then hopefully I will be done. I don't really want to buy boxes. I never have before but this job is hard enough. Dumpster diving for boxes just isn't happening this time. I think I am just getting too old for all that. 

* I saw a bee on the back porch today. Thank goodness I left the epi pen out. I am so scared of getting stung. My reaction is different every time. No telling what will happen to me. It could seriously kill me. I want Scott home. 

* Facetime has been such a gift. It makes me so happy to hit a button and see my family and friends. Its amazing! Also Uber has been kick ass as well. Who would have guessed I would love it so much!? I might never drive again! j/k

* The sun was out today but it was still a bit too chilly for me. Come on warm weather....come back. 

* I watched a show on Netflix about the Amish. It was about the ones who left and were shunned. It was actually touching and by the end I had tears running down my face. They have their way of life and their reasons for everything. 

* My kids are totally turning into legit teenagers. None of them like getting up out of the bed. At 1pm I am anxious to wake them up. But I am torn in letting them rest and get the sleep they probably need and getting their butts up. 

* I am thinking about persicope. Do you know about it? It's simply an app...you follow whom wish or sign up yourself and do live broadcasts. I like the idea and I think I am going to try it soon. Get the app on your phone and follow me → @kishajaggers 

* I wasn't going to take you through house picking. However Scott went and checked out this house his new boss wanted him to check out. It is a rental and it's beautiful. All the kids were like yessssssssssss! We'll see! We have been looking hard. I haven't settled yet...which I thought I might have to. I also an apartment for a few months was another possibility. I couldn't find many homes that really suited our family. God is guiding us where we need to be. However, mom is not happy with the price tag of this one so she is determined to find another. It should be interesting! 


* I miss Scott. Not every second but there are times during the day and evenings when I just feel a little sad and empty. It's been strange not having him here. It's about to be over though! :)

* I need to buy a external hard drive. Yesterday I spent over an hour deleting old photos and videos just for more room. I keep putting it off but I need to find one.

* Cooper has been driving me crazy. I don't know what he is trying to say to me. He's just stands close and stares at me. I played ball with him today for a long time. Fed him well. He's been out a bunch but I know what is going on with him. Maybe he misses Scott too.

* Tonight is the end of the OJ series. It's been interesting. Cuba has done a wonderful job. It still makes me very sad. But I am so watching in just a few minutes! Hope you had a wonderful day. I'll talk to you soon. xx

My 2016 Midori Travelers Notebook Setup- Video | April 2016 |


Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I got up early today just for traffic court! I will have more about it in my Tuesday Truths blog post later today. Instead, I am back sharing a look inside my Midori Travelers Notebook that I am so in love with. It has worked really nice and I love how you can replace the inserts as you need or even when you want to change it. Here's the video if you want to see how I have it set up! 



Everyone is different and my setup might not work for you but as you can see, it is full and customized to my life. I realize that a lot of the Midori products are not cheap but I reason it out because this is a book I can keep forever. I think it's ok to spend a little more on a planner system that you can reuse for years to come. I do have a cheaper alternative that I plan on sharing with you in the coming weeks but nothing beats Midori. I am still using the passport size for my wallet which I doubt I will ever change. It works great and again..it's simply beautiful. 

If you haven't checked out my unboxing yet, here's that video as well. 


At the bottom of the blog you can find links to these notebooks in case you want to get yourself one! Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have a beautiful and blessed day. xx

Week in Review | DITL Vlog: Finding my Mojo |


Afternoon friends! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I am moving so slow today but I am actually feeling good and happy for a new day and a new week. We are actually kicking of spring break with the boys today so it's ok if we take it a little easier...a little slower and a a little more relaxed. I didn't vlog as much this past week because wasn't feel that good over the weekend. Here's a little from our week...hope you enjoy!


This is no going to be a long dragged out blog post with photos about our week. It was mainly a week of packing and trying to get things finished up around here. Then the weekend came and I just wasn't feeling good dealing with a lot of different things. So I feel like I kinda fell behind a little but it's ok. I started packing early just in case of something happening. I still have plenty of time and as we move through this spring holiday I am going to have the boys help out some. I for sure want their help in the garage. 

Scott is busy and has been working hard, hanging out with the grandkids and trying to get everything done up there that he has to do. If you guys only knew how long my to do list is as well as Scotts this week. We will both probably feel dead by time the weekend rolls back around. Here's a few of my to do's...

- Keep packing and moving forward. 
- Figure out dates when everything has to be shut off. 
- Transfer cable
- Find the UNO cards. 
- Answer Emails...like seriously...I can't put it off any longer. 
- Start cleaning packed up areas. 
- Keep up with filming and blogging schedule. 
- Pick up Zanes glasses. 
- Clean out car so Scott doesn't kill me when he does get home. 
- Take the boys out for a picnic. 
- Clean rocking chairs on front porch. 
- Wash and hang out bedding. 
- Fill up bird feeder. I won't be doing that much more here but I think they sing more for me for food! :)
- Answer some youtube comments. 
- Try to get treadmill cleaned off ( boxes ) and make time to walk. 

Here's some inspiration for your week:


Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a wonderful week. It's going to be mostly packing for us. No fun but it's what has to be done. I am still excited about everything coming up. I just have to find my mojo again and get at it! See ya soon. xx

Reflecting & Looking Back: March 2016 | Video & Corresponding Blog Post |


Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful Thursday afternoon. I can't believe we are finishing up with March and moving right into April. Time really does start to pass quicker the older you get. So around this time each month I like to post a reflecting video sharing my thoughts on the previous month. Here are my thoughts on March 2016. Lots more below! 


Currently.....

Seeing: boxes all around the house and I loooooove it! 
Making: the most of this time while Scott is gone. We are all working in our ways to make this move happen. 
Cooking: easy peasy dinners for the kids and myself. 
Drinking: coffee even though I know it's past time for lunch and something less caffeinated. 
Hearing: tons and tons of 80's hits. It's just what helps me pack faster! 
Wanting: to find the right house instead of the right apartment. See why Scott went up early. There is so much for us to figure out....and soon.
Looking: at life with a more positive attitude. Not everyday but more so than not. 
Playing: with Cooper outside a lot more with the warmer weather. 
Wasting: money on packing boxes instead of going dumpster diving....and I actually think its really worth it. 
Bookmarking: Swimsuits that I keep seeing online. It's a scary thought....but it needs to be done!
Understanding: I am who I am....and I refuse to change to suit others. It won't happen.
Wishing: I would have never been pulled over and hit upside the head by the costly tickets I received. It sucks.
Touching: boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap and all kinds of items though out the house. And it's not been kind to my hands. 
Enjoying: my thoughts on all good things that will come as a result of us moving. 
Waiting: on Scott to get back here. We all miss him a lot. 
Planning: on sharing my Midori Travlers Notebook this weekend. Many have asked about the setup and I can't wait to share it!
Liking: the big gift that I cannot share yet on my birthday. It's a little different but sooner or later I will explain what it was! 
Wondering: how grandma is doing today. I wish I could call her and tell her we are packing and that I am keeping my promise to her. She can't talk but in a couple weeks she will know.
Loving: the idea of all of us being together again. 
Hoping: to reply to a lot of emails today and tonight. The list is long and I have been super busy but I need to make time to tackle to ever growing inbox. 
Hating: Donald Trump...but nothing new about that! 
Needing: everything to go according to plan over the next couple of weeks to make this move go smoothly. 
Smelling: Hawaiian breeze in the waxy melt pot. 
Wearing: a big shirt that is hanging off my right shoulder and yoga pants. Comfy clothes for me today! 
Pinning: nothing much. 
Learning: how to not let the negative outside energy effect me. I just want all that stuff to bounce right off of me and move on. 
Teaching: my kids all about manners still. I have a feeling this lesson will never end.
Noticing: all the spring flowers popping up around the neighborhood. So pretty!
Tasting: the Melting Pot still. It was really good and I enjoyed it so much...as did the boys!
Knowing: I really need to try harder to repair my relationship with my older son. It way past time. 
Thinking: about all I want to do before I fall into the bed tonight.
Opening: the endless stack of mail that I have to go through. I need to sort through it and make stacks of bills, junk mail, bank papers.. and just wipe that job out.
Giggling: not as much with Scott gone. :(
Feeling: motivated to finish packing and make this move official! 
March: A better month than the others so far even with my traffic tickets. It started out great nad it is ending great and I couldn't be more thankful. 

Thank you guys for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed the video and blog post! Feel free to let me know how February was for you! xx

2016 Planning Series: Polaroid Zip Demo & Review | Video |


Hello everyone. This evening I am sharing a new product that I absolutely love....The Polaroid Zip Portable Photo Printer. I take you through why I love it, how I use it along with a lot more in the video. Also below is more information about where you can find this printer! 


This is a rather small printer but it packs a punch. This is a inkless printer using zink photo paper with the ink basically built into it. I love that. It comes with a charging cord and The printer connects to both iOS and Android devices via Bluetooth. So as long as you have a smartphone you can use it.   You simply download the free Polaroid ZIP app, set up the Bluetooth and start printing right way. The phone app gives you several different ways to print you're pictures out including a full size quick print, photo edit options, collage frames, and more.
I have used this printer for so much since I got it back in December 2015. I show a few of those ways in the video but the possibilities are endless.  You can even print a business card on the go. And since this printer is so small you can pretty much take it anywhere. I have tossed it in my purse many times while traveling. It's perfect for on the go! 
I loved using this printer to design the mission board in my Midori Travelers Notebook. I have actually used it in a lot of ways throughout my planner and even on our family calendar that hangs on the chalkboard wall. It's so handy and I think anyone who loves to decorate their planner or calendars. It's perfect for a scrapbooker and I bet many of you would truly love this. I'ts so nice. It prints very clear photos and has a made a huge difference in personalizing some of the days in my planner. I think my planner/ travelers notebook means more with person photos running through it. 

You can find this printer in a bunch of different places. You can find the bundle with Erin Condren right here and you can get a discount using my link in the sidebar. You can also find it on amazon as well as the paper. :)

Thanks for stopping by. I have a ton of planner videos coming up for you in my 2016 Planning Series. You can check out the first video of the series → Planning for Beginners | Picking a Planner & Structuring Your Days| ←n case you want to check it out! I will be adding many many more videos in this series this year. I hope you find them helpful, motivating and encouraging. Have a great night. xx

Tuesday Truths


Hello friends! I hope you are getting along great on this Tuesday afternoon. Here's another edition of Tuesday Truths. Hope you enjoy. 

- Romeo has been so sweet the last few days. He's really the only cat in the house that really just wants attention all the time. He's got such a personality and is really the star of the show around here. 

- The weather is pretty chilly today. I slept with a window open and woke up freezing. Yuck. I think its suppose to warm back up tomorrow. However today I am staying inside and keeping warm. 

- I miss Scott. He is working hard and learning a ton of new things. I wanted to move back to Indiana in the summer and he wanted to go ahead and take this new job and move on up now. So we are going with his plan and it sucks. It sucks for all of us not being together. 

- I actually made a video today kicking off my 2016 planner series. I know it's not for everyone but it makes me happy to watch planner videos and also to share my own. I have a lot coming up for you planner friends! 

- All the neighbors have been mowing their yards and I just refuse to do it. Yea..no thanks. We are moving and Scott is not home. It is what it is. Zane has never mowed the grass....Jackson can barely work the controls and I don't know much about it. I kinda letting the grass grow. :) 

- Our oldest daughter Laura started a new job. I couldn't be more happy for her. She's straight out of college with little experience and I think this job will be good for her. She's amazing and we are proud of her. Life is ever changing.

- I have been busy packing things up around here. It's been a little easier doing it at my own pace instead of rushing. I know some don't like the way I pack and I know others do. I feel like I am doing what works best for me since I am the one doing it. Hell, there have been times I have tossed stuff in boxes at warp speed and just went with it. This move is not like that. 

- I am thinking about using snapchat. Brittany has been explaining it a lot to me and I might just try it. I don't really see the point if it is gone in 24 hours. What do you guys think? Would you like that? 

- Here's a new pitbull story where they killed an 86 year old woman. When is enough enough. I just can't do it. I don't think anyone needs those kind of dogs. I don't care about the argument that it's the way it's raised. I don't trust people in general to raise those dogs. I won't live next to one and I certainly don't want my children around them. I know sometimes they are when I am not around but God help that dog and it's owners if something happens to any of them. I just have seen and read too much to change my views on that. However, I am sure many of you have loveable pitbulls who would never hurt anyone....until they do.

- This week I am finally throwing away our old artificial Christmas tree. It's time to say goodbye to that big tree. We did a real tree this past year and we are not going back. It looked and smelled better and I loved it. Goodbye old tree...thanks for all of our years together. 

- The kids are on spring break next week. So no getting up early! Woooo-hooo! I think we will probably be moving the week after. It's a big process we are just going through them step by step hopefully in the right order. 

- I have some pretty big traffic fines to pay. I hate it too. I might just end up going to court and putting them off till after this move. I feel like I am cops and robbers every time I pull out of the driveway. 

- On one of the upcoming days I need to take a few hours and groom all the cats. It's a huge job and it has to be done...outside. They all love it though and I love that all that hair is outside. They're just big fluff balls!

- The house is so weird looking with so much packed up. I kinda like it. Maybe in the next house I should just let it be bare. It feels good. I even like the freezer being emptier. 

- This afternoon the kids and I are doing a quick house cleanup. We have been eating dinner a little later so we are going to tackle the house and get it picked up....around the boxes. Hopefully if we get moving it won't take very long. 

- I have some news that I am busting at the seams to tell you about but I just can't yet. It's hard keeping secrets at times! Mummmmmmm's the word. And no I am not pregnant. :)

- Mr. Selfridge is back on....FOR THE LAST SEASON. I mean seriously. They take Downton Abbey from us and now Mr. Selfridge too!? I loved the 2 hour premiere but now I'm sad it's going away. 

Well I hope you guys a wonderful evening. I have a new video uploading that I will share tomorrow but if you want to check it out sooner visit my youtube channel in an hour or so. xx

Week in Review: DITL Vlog(s) | Packing, Easter & Fondue! ) Weekly to Do's


Hello friends! Happy Monday to you all. I really love a fresh week. It makes me feel good to know that we have a fresh new start. On most Monday's I post a week in review going over some of the things that went on around here. I normally share a vlog and even more photos and ramblings about life lately. This week I am sharing 2 vlogs.  The first one, I already shared but in case you haven't watched it yet, here it is. 



I noticed I had a lot of footage so I thought I would share it on Friday and share a new vlog from this weekend today! Grab some tea or coffee, sit back and hang out with us. :)


Here's a little more about how our week went...
 Around here life has been rather strange. Scott is working in Indiana and we are here trying to pack up the house. Many have wondered how I am coping. Well....it's not easy. I have never really been away from Scott for this kind of time ever. Sometimes I look back and think that we might never be as happy as we once were, but on more positive days I think about how much we've grown since the beginning, about the chances we've been given, and how I would choose this life with him and our kids over and over and over again. I can't explain what has held us together for so many years except love but I think it's what is helping me get through this weird kinda tough time. I am trying my best to stay busy. There is plenty around here to do. Moving from one state to another is no easy task. I spend most of my time packing and or cleaning. I haven't even made much time to film. It's no secret that I am so ready to move but it's a bit sad too in a way. I have loved this state. I feel like I am entering the gates of hell moving back to the area I have sworn off for years. But I am trying to change those feelings. I am trying to remind myself everyday that we are doing this for our kids and our family. It's not just about me. And rather I like it or not....it's home. Many have also asked why Scott had to leave so quick. He actually stayed longer than he should have trying not to leave the dealership hanging. But they wanted him to start right away. Being this is a new area of work for him, we thought it best that he get up there....learn the ropes and find us a new home. I don't want to move the boys if something doesn't work out. We need Scott's income and it's important for that to be a stable area in our lives. It's hard not being together. I miss him a lot and I know the boys do as well. But we are working together to make this happen. It's been boxes, tape, bubble wrap, packing paper and 80's music around here for days. I am on morning shift with the kids now and I am trying my best to be nice in the mornings....normally I am a grump when I wake up. I have been trying to get enough sleep and again...I am prepping as much as I can at night to make the mornings go easier. I have always done the prep work at night even when Scott was taking them. That's nothing new. However, the mounds of boxes around here is really new....a little exciting and a little scary all at the same time!

Scott wasn't able to be here for my birthday and the same for Easter. He actually offered to drive here for a day but that's too many miles for such a short trip. We told him to stay put and we celebrated Easter in our own unique way.  We all slept in and had a wonderful time later in the evening at the Melting Pot. Its a fun little experience for the kids and I love it too. In a way it was kinda a birthday dinner too. It was a great time and thankfully due to the Easter special we didn't have to spend a fortune. We face timed with Brittany while we were there and we all talked to Scott as well. We don't want to leave anyone out even when they are not physically there with us. All through out dinner we talked about what Easter meant and why it is such an important day. Its always interesting hearing how the kids put it! It was a delicious dinner and lovely time with both of the boys. ♥

We were actually running a little late but I really wanted a quick photo before we left. We sat up the tripod...added the camera....set the timer and this was the first and only photo taken before we left! Cooper sure looks cute in that picture. He knows how to pose for sure! I wish the hair wasn't in my eye but it is what it is! :)



After dinner we all came home and totally vegged out the rest of the evening. There was no packing...no loudness...we all just found someplace warm and cozy and relaxed while it rained. Our bellies were full and I don't think any of us wanted to do anything. It was a nice way to end the weekend. So here with are...back with lots of things to do this next week. Here's a few of my to do's.

:: Do a quick clean up of the house. 
:: Film a couple of videos later in the day if possible. 
:: Put phone down more and focus more. 
:: Go through to do list in planner and see what I can work on next. 
:: Finish packing up most of the kitchen in the next few days. 
:: Get to bed early so mornings are easier. 
:: Tackle my overflowing inbox. 
:: Try to be more understanding of Scott and everything that he has on his plate. 
:: Pre-make some breakfast items for this last week before the kids get out for spring break. 
:: Delete old photos from laptop
:: Make some peanut butter cookies. YUM!
:: Brush out kitty cats this week....Cooper too. 
:: Call Dentist and make Jackson an appointment. 
:: Clean jewelry
:: Work in planner for a while today.
:: Buy more boxes and packing tape. 
:: Wash all dishrags, pot holders and kitchen towels waiting on me. 
:: Clean up DVR
:: Bring 2nd floor boxes to the 1st floor. A task that got pushed off a few extra days. 
:: Forget color polish of any kind...do nails with clear polish only. 
:: Make just one folder for important papers that I might need throughout the move. File the rest away. 
:: Soak and clean pet dishes.
:: Make a little more time to enjoy a good book.
:: Send thank you cards out for birthday gifts.
:: Help Scott look for houses online. 

Here's some inspiration to take along with you throughout the week:

Catching Up: DITL Vlog: Moving Right Along with Scott & a New Food Haul!


Hello everyone! Can you believe its Friday!? I guess I have really been neglecting this little blog of mine and for that I am sorry. I actually love it here. I just need to love it enough to get back to get back on schedule. Everything has been a little off since we announced that we are moving. I have been busy packing up our house while Scott is busy learning a new business. Plus there are things going on with ALL the kids right now keeping us pretty busy! I did vlog throughout the week. I share what's been going on around here....however you might want to get a coffee or tea, it's a long one! Hope you enjoy. 



This past Monday I had some shopping I needed to do. We cleaned out the freezers on Sunday. I just didn't have a ton of meat or anything. I also made a more kid friendly menu with the boys on Sunday night to get ready for the shopping. Here's what we are having and what I got.



I normally don't post videos together but I want to try to get caught up with the vidoes and blog. I am slowly starting to film again and I hope to have more videos up in the coming days and weeks. I also hope to have a new edition of Friday letters up this evening. :) Happy Friday friends! xx
