Happy New Year!

Happy 2018! Can you believe it! Are you excited for the new year? Do you have big plans? The new year always gets me in the organize and throw out mood. I have been going through my Christmas stuff and throwing lots away and donating the rest. Since this was the first year I got to decorate this house, I wasn’t sure what I was going to use or what would work. Well, now I have a better idea and I am really trying to purge.

Did you go after Christmas shopping? I picked up a few items, like wrapping paper, ribbon and tags. I have a tote like this one and keep all my Christmas wrapping supplies in one place. I even keep tape, scissors and a pen in there. Whenever I buy wrapping supplies this is where I store it. It’s so nice to be able to pull out the box and have everything in one place.

I have also been going through my closet. I pull out the pieces I am not sure about and then try them on or plan to wear them one day. If I just don’t like it or it doesn’t fit, away it goes! It sure feels good to have more room in my closet. The hardest part for me is the shoes. Oh, I love my shoes!  I redid how I stored my scarves and gloves in my hall closet a few years ago and I still use this method. Here’s the post.

Do you love printables? Do you need a new calendar for 2018? The Cottage Market has so many cute ones! There are ones for Harry Potter, princesses, unicorns, floral and anything else in-between! I just printed off one for myself!

Did you party for New Years Eve? Better Homes and Gardens has all sorts of ideas for all kinds of parties! We just stayed home and had our traditional pizza dinner. 🙂

Do you make resolutions in the new year or set goals? Do you have ideas of projects you want to do around the house or the yard? My list is too long to post here, but I want to work on my laundry room and I would like my side yard to look like this. I can dream can’t I?

Thank you so much for following along with me each week! I really appreciate all my readers and love to read you comments! I hope you have a blessed 2018!

It’s Friday!!! What a week it has been! I am so ready for a weekend! Last weekend, my poor Ezzy was sick and I ended up taking her to the emergency vet. We had to wait awhile, since she wasn’t high priority. After the vet ‘talked’ with her, she said she should have come in much sooner, because Ezzy was such a sad case. She was like her own martyr. 😦 This is how she was while waiting. She is much better now though. Thanks for asking!

This is what I read while waiting in the vet office. What an awesome dog magazine! They also have a cat one. This had so much great information and fun stories.

I have also been going through my clothes, pulling everything out of my closet, one type of clothing at a time. First the shirts, then pants, then skirts and so on.  I ask myself if I really like this or will wear it. If the answer is ‘eh’, it goes. This is my ‘to go’ pile. I do have to be in the right mood though. I can be awfully sentimental. Next up, jewelry!

It feels really good to clean things out and to know that what is left is stuff I really like and looks and feels good to wear.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! I will be back on Monday with my Fall Home Tour, so stop by!
