Week in Review w/ DITL Vlog..plus Weekly To Do's :)

Monday, August 24, 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. However this week, I am only sharing one vlog. Hope you enjoy!


Last week started off like any normal week around here. I was up early and I worked a long time on the computer before starting my weekly cleaning. I have been doing my weekly cleaning mid week but I knew Scott was off on Tuesday and I had things going on Wednesday so I just got busy around the house. Waking up much earlier, I seem to get a lot more done during regular daytime hours! It's a change to say the least.  


It has been different not having Jackson here all day. Summer is over and that means most Tuesday's Scott and I get to enjoy a little day date out. This past Tuesday we took off and enjoyed such a delicious lunch at Sushi Dojo. 


I could eat here everyday of the week.:) I normally start off with the Dojo soup and then a crisp cold salad before indulging in delicious sushi. Scott and I are very different sushi eaters but we can always find something we both love. 

As the week went on, I happened to get in a few sale items that I ordered. I love the Bare Minerals makeup. I really do. I think my skin is looking better and better due to that mineral makeup. When I was looking on their website, I found a couple of items on sale that kinda excited me. I went for the Bare Minerals Always Perfect Mini Bareskin Perfecting Veil and Brush Duo. And I also got the Touch up to Glow illuminating touch up veil and brush duo. I wish I could just order one of everything. 


I also was notified of another crocs sale and I ended up getting a $55 pair of Crocs Skimmers for $24. My Croc Wedges are one of the most comfortable pair of wedges I have ever owned so I thought these might just be as comfortable for everyday use around the house. And guess what? They are soooo comfortable to wear! I love them and think they will take me out of summer and into fall. 

I also finally got around going to the grocery store. I ended up getting more household stuff than food but the boys were screaming that they were starving so I had to go. And guess what? I had to carry all those bags in myself! Summer is officially over here in the Jaggers house. There are no more kids to help carry stuff in. I did find something rather interesting. Apriums! It's a fruit that is a cross of apricots and plums. Gosh you guys....they are so unbelievably good! I found them at Walmart in the produce area.. look for them! 


The weekend went pretty well. I feel like I got just a couple steps ahead over Saturday and Sunday. I got busy with laundry and get the house picked up on Saturday and then Sunday we just laid around most of the day until the evening hours when I got busy again with my night time routine.  


I like the house cleaned up and ready for the morning before I head to bed each night. I feel like with a good nighttime routine, you can make mornings a breeze. I did however just share my morning routine with you guys too. 


I think it's important to start the day off right which will hopefully lead to a more productive organized day. I have a new video coming up soon all about sleep...so stay tuned for that! 

I woke up this morning bright and early around 6am with the boys. I still don't think they know what to do with me being up each morning. You would think it would make them super happy but not so much. Scott and Jackson have been use to having the house to themselves morning after morning and I have since through a money wrench in it. But it's nice seeing them before they head off to work and school. 

Right now the contractors are here working in the upstairs bathroom and then the bottom bathroom is need in repairs. So it's a busy day at the Jaggers house! :) Thankfully Scott is taking Jackson to the Dr.'s today because I don't want to leave them here alone. 

Here's what I need to get done this week:

:: Keep up pre recording videos to stay ahead of schedule. 
:: Order new tri-pod arm. 
:: Bath Cooper
:: Check on Laura...in a couple of hours
:: Make time for treadmill workouts...even through the hip pain I have been having. 
:: Try to not fall asleep with a wet head....my hair is always insane the next morning. 
:: Call the Trash Pick up people....where are they??
:: Water plants
:: Make more time to read. 
:: Mop kitchen floor later today. 
:: Call school re Scott picking him up. 
:: Purge old magazines
:: Make cupcakes or brownies....hummmm...which one!?
:: Quick pickup of Master Closet...I have no idea why that little room gets so messy so fast. 
:: Toss Nikes in washer for a refresher. 
::Clean up back porch. 
::Update chalkboard wall. 
:: Food prep as much as possible for this week's dinners. 
:: Burn more candles
:: Call and check on mom. 
:: File papers away and clean up desk. 
:: Send package to Brittany Belle. 
:: Clean ceiling fans. 
:: Make scrapbook for Scotts step mom from the cruise and get it mailed!
:: Clean up inbox. 
:: Brush out kitty cats.
