Random Musings

I had the best breakfast today. No really. Did you know that having a great breakfast is the catalyst to having a great day? I think every morning that starts off with a hearty breakfast is just a stepping stone to a brighter morning. Breakfast was a whole apple chopped into little pieces and microwaved for 2 minutes with cinnamon. Add some Greek yogurt, peanut butter and granola and yummmm. My mornings always pass a lot quicker with a good breakfast and my Nalgene topped off with water and Crystal Light. (Our drinking fountain water tastes gross. I needed help.)I honestly wasn't that hungry again until about 3. Kind of crazy.

I’ve had that I (heart) Brugge sticker ever since I studied abroad in Austria in 2003. The top sticker is so worn from repeated washings that I should goo-gone it off but I don’t have the heart. This water bottle and I have been through a lot and honestly, I can’t believe I still have it.

I did have a snack though.

Ok, enough yakkin’ about my water bottle. I’m super excited for Thanksgiving because my mother-in-law is coming to visit! She’s an awesome woman and I’m stoked to have her here but I have to confess an ulterior motive to my excitement. Our guest bedroom has been a dumping ground for anything and everything that didn’t have a home in our house. Random bookshelves? Check. Printer? Check. Desk no one uses? Check check check. So I’m excited to have an excuse to dress it up and really make it a bedroom.

We inherited a day bed frame from my parents. It used to be mine but then it was passed to my aunt who passed it back to us. I’m not sure if we’re going to use that or the Hubs old bed. The daybed has hearts on it so I think that one might get vetoed. PLUS, the mattress we’re going to use is seriously the most comfortable thing ever. I can already seeing myself going upstairs and taking a nap on it. Yum.

I ordered new curtains for the room yesterday and Bed, Bath, and your Mom. I’m planning on getting a new lamp and dragging up a night stand from the garage. A lot of the crap is going to get moved out back to the garage and possible take out one of the bookshelves.

It’s just time this room got a little bit of attention. Hubs painted it last year (it was BRIGHT blue before) and we still call it the blue room even though it clearly isn’t anymore. But I’m anxious to clear up some clutter in there and get things settled in their proper area.

Here's the crazy thing. I was going to take pictures for you all to see but Hubs had the day off and when I went home for lunch, he already moved the mattress upstairs and a couple pieces of furniture were already in the garage! I shouldn't wait so long next time.

Do you have any big projects you’re working on? Anything lighting a fire under you to get it done?

  5. Mmm that breakfast sounds amazing! I never thought about warming up my apple! As they say, "Good choices in the mornings lead to good choices in the afternoon." I feel ya about those good breakfasts, I feel like I can be healthy and "good" all day!
