This Week

*I finally, finally, finally finished painting Becca's room (well, except for some areas that need touch ups). I was reminded why I don't do projects like this. With a six month old this project took 5 weeks to complete! The paint was just the beginning, now I need to gradually find items to decorate it with. The color theme is mainly grey and yellow but I'll be adding other pops of color. Pictures to come as the room comes together.
*It's getting cold. I awoke this morning to a house that was 59 degrees. I have an odd rule that I try not to turn the heat on until November but had to run it once this morning to take the chill out of the air.

*I found a group online of other "subscription box addicts" that trade items they don't want from their boxes. This week I've already set up several trades - I'm getting some "Clinique Happy" in trade for some gift cards, a Christmas present in trade for a gift card (all of these are from subscription boxes for places I won't use), and some dog treats in exchange for an apple dish. How fun!

*I'm beginning to think that coffee and I don't get along. I've been dealing with anxiousness recently and find it to be much, much worse after drinking my morning coffee. This makes me sad. I'm going to test it for a week, drinking tea in the morning instead and seeing how I feel. I'm really hoping it's not the coffee, but know that it probably is a big part of it. :(


  1. Would you mind sharing the name of the swapping group? I have a few things I'd like to swap. Thank you. :)

    1. Elizabeth, It is called Box Love Exchange - it's a private group but I think you can ask to join. :)

  2. Thank you I will give it a shot. :)
