Thoughts on Thursday

Here's whats going on lately in my little corner of the world.

I used to work for a handmade jeweler in high school and learned all sorts of skills for making jewelry. I thought it would be fun to pick that hobby up again and make some necklaces, bracelets in my free time. Actually, I thought what I really needed was a "hobby" when I'm not doing house projects, house work, etc. Does that even make sense? No. No, it does not. Most normal people would plop down in front of the TV but I am wanting something to do when I have free time? Ha! Anyway, here was my first necklace....


And then I made one in black for my sister...


I am loving it and have worn it so many times already. Perfect transition into fall.
Side note: I was wearing Lilly Pulitzer beach pants. The perfect thing to wear in the car because I like to be comfortable, not cold when I travel. Stephen asked if I was wearing pajamas? No, no.

Who can relate to this one?



Bills and Sales

It seems like we have had an onslaught of bills lately and I am so over it! Why do they all seem to come at once? In the mean time, I am going through my closet to get it ready for fall. I think I have too many things I am not wearing anymore. I was thinking about doing a blog sale. Anyone interested?

We are also going through our upstairs room that has not been touched since we moved in. {Lets file that project as #the20dollarchallenge} In fact, we keep loading it up with more "stuff" that doesn't have a home. I started going through my fabric collection, and gracious- I need to get rid of some! I was also thinking about listing some of it for sale. 

Big Little Lies


I just started reading this and I can't wait to get into it. My sister said several of her friends said it was the best book they have ever read. Reading it yet?

Did you read her other book The Husband's Secret? I really want to like it, but I just cannont get into in :(

Also, don't feel bad about the room- we had one too. It was like that for so long. I am on vacation this week though and finally decided to go through it and organize/goodwill it. You can only imagine the fun I am having -_-

When I wear palazzo pants the hubs thinks they look like pajama pants. What do men know about fashion?

And as for that pin, yeah totally did that this week. We hit up most of those stores in fact looking for crates, signs, and pumpkins for some of my pinterest finds. But it stinks when you can't find the things you want to go with them!

We have been in our house a year, and our guest room has become the catch all. Yikes. Hoping to get that under control stat.

I am adding that to my book list!

YES with the Pinterest projects! After my last fail, I promised myself (and my husband) I was done with Pinterest projects. I'm just not nearly as handy as I seem to think I am at the outset of these projects. They inevitably lead to failure and wasted time.

Yes yes yes to Pinterest projects! I swear I spend so much time and money gathering supplies I should probably just buy the item already made. I just started Big Little Lies and cannot wait to get into it more. Love your necklaces- I used to make my own jewelry in high school and I've been thinking about getting back into it because I feel like I need a hobby. That might change once I have this second baby though...
