Week in Review | January 29 - February , 2015 | Vlog & To Do's :)

Monday, February 2, 2015

Hello friends! I hope you are having a wonderful Monday. As many of you know... I post a week in review recapping what happened over the week & weekend. Its something that I have been doing off and on for years. Its just a simple way to give you guys a glimpse into our week. I have changed up the vlogging schedule where I will be uploading a Day in the life vlog Monday...as always and then another on Thursday. Monday's vlog will cover Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the previous week and Thursdays vlog will be for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Actually I might be adding more vlogs in during the week...depending on how much I vlog. 



Here's how things went around here the last few days:





This past week has been full of a lot of everyday stuff.  I tend to spend a lot of time at my desk sorting through emails, writing blog posts and editing videos. I am also always answering comments and engaging with you guys each day. I could seriously be at the computer for a week straight and I probably wouldn't be caught up. But I am just doing one thing at a time and oddly enough, I have been getting more done than what I even expected.


In my other " spare time " I have been doing my best to keep caught up on laundry and cleaning. I have been doing a massive amount of decluttering which really does make the weekly cleaning easier. I have just got rid of so much stuff. I honestly haven't been donating much. Instead, I have Scott haul it right off to the dump. Goodbye. I don't have to think about it from that point on. And that's exactly what is about to happen in the garage. I can't wait to get out there and get rid of so much stuff. I just want it gone.

Over the weekend my main job was heading out to the grocery store and getting the things we needed. I tried hard to stay in budget and only went up by a few dollars. If you haven't checked out the haul yet, you can click right here to see it!


Saturday night the boys were asleep so early. I ended up watching a really good movie ↓ with Nicole kidman that kept me watching like nothing else. 


It's not a movie to watch with the kids. But it's good..it flipped me out a bunch of times. If you need a more adult movie for movie night... don't miss this one! 

Sunday rolled around and we had a quiet day. Scott was not feeling very good so he laid around a lot and Jackson played xbox. Once the super bowl started, I headed upstairs with a delicious cup of tea and made my favorites videos. 


Once half time rolled around, I was back downstairs watching with my husband. I could really care less but I enjoyed watching Katy Perry. :) There have been years when our house was filled up with a bunch boys screaming and shouting but having it calm last night was a bit of a blessing. I actually fell to sleep early and woke up feeling pretty good today! ;) Sleep does a body well.

This weeks to dos
  • Clean garage...and it's at the top of the list so lets hope I get it done this week.

Here's some inspiration to take with you along through your week.

I am sorry that I didn't get a Sunday Inspiration blog post up. I was just enjoying the day with the boys and time passed so fast. I really feel blessed in so many ways. I have such a beautiful family with smart caring children, a husband who I know loves me.  I have a wonderful mom and sisters and I have you guys. Even through all the ups and downs, you have been there to lift us up and put us in your prayers. I know how important all that is. I take nothing for granted. The older I get, the more I understand the importance of everything that surrounds me. My faith in God is as strong as ever and I know that no matter what happens in this life, it will be ok. Thank you guys for all your love and support.
