Happy Friday! This has been one of those weeks that started off slow, then got away from me very quickly! But as always, I’m excited for the weekend! I have zero plans, and my goal is to knock out a few special blog projects I’ve got up my sleeve. And maybe also finally get all of my pictures hung on the wall in my room so I can stop tripping over the box they’re in. We’ll see how that goes!
It’s finally getting a little cooler in Houston, which gives me hope that maybe, just maybe, I can wear my sweaters more than once this year. Honestly, after last year, I’m tempted to not buy any more winter clothes as long as I live here, because it just makes me sad that they sit in my closet and don’t get to live out their full potential. But I digress. Here’s what I’m loving this week:
1.Tidy Home Chart
I recently came across this last-minute cleaning guide from My Domaine, and it appears to be very helpful! I am notorious for waiting until the last minute to clean my house when people are coming over. Literally every time my parents come to visit me, I’ll think I have WAY more time than I actually do, and then suddenly I ask where they are and they’re like 30 minutes away and I still haven’t cleaned up my breakfast dishes so I am scrambling. But this list is great, especially the first section, because I feel like that’s what people notice the most. Except if I ever got to the two hour mark, I think I would skip cleaning the entryway closet because 1. it is a nightmare and 2. don’t be looking in my closets. I also love the tip about lighting a candle. That makes me think that maybe I’m not the only person in the world who tries to hide a dirty house behind a Volcano candle.
2. Dream Handbag
So I just found this Tory Burch Half-moon Satchel and I think I have found my true love. I mean, just look at it! I am considering asking for this instead of Frye boots for Christmas. But this is still pending because The Pioneer Woman has Frye boots and you know how I love her. But anyways, how fabulous is this bag? The half-moon shape is to die for, not to mention the braided handles! It also looks pretty roomy, which is a requirement for any handbag that I own. The other colors are nice, but if I’m going to spend that much on a bag, I want it to be something I can wear with almost everything, so I think the black is my favorite! I would also definitely get a pom pom keychain, because I just think those are #soluxe.
3. Another Slow Cooker Meal
As you know, slow cooker meals are my latest dinner obsession. They’re easy, typically fairly cheap, and you can get multiple meals out of them, even for two people! I found this recipe for Slow Cooker Salsa Verde Honey Lime Chicken Tacos on Carlsbad Cravings, and I NEED to try it. How yummy would this be for a taco bar? Or for my roommate and I to just eat by ourselves for like a solid week. Except it calls for smoked paprika, and that may be a little too fancy for me, so I will probably make some edits. I’ll report back.
4. Quote of the Week
I know I typically do GIF of the week, but I haven’t watched the Real Housewives in nearly a month, so I’m off my game. Sorry. I found this quote a few weeks ago on Pinterest, and I just loved it. Sometimes it’s easy for me (and everyone I think!) to get discouraged when a goal seems too far away. I wouldn’t call myself a quitter, but sometimes I just don’t try as hard as I should. But this little quote is cute and reminds me that sometimes you’ve just gotta stick to it until it’s accomplished!
P.S.- have you entered my giveaway for a Macbook Air + Canon Rebel Kit? There’s still plenty of time- just head to this post!
That’s all for meow, I hope everyone has a great weekend!
