Happy Thursday, all! I don't know about you but I am very ready for this holiday weekend that kicks off tonight. Today's post was actually suppose to be all about spring cleaning but Derek was out, I was comfy on the couch and Stella kept jumping up onto my lap to cuddle (how could I say no after her day, see details below) so a few Thursday thoughts will have to do instead.
+ On the spring cleaning note, here's a great checklist to follow along with. I plan on tackling the rest of the closets, cabinets and drawers in the house but I think I'm going to cheat and have a cleaning service come in for a big deep clean and have the carpets done as well.
+ Yesterday was National Puppy Day - did everyone have fun celebrating their pups? Stella celebrated by throwing up around the house multiple times. The cause - some plastic from one of her toys and a piece of a tennis ball.
+ Our DVR is filled with shows that I need to catch up on but I can't pull myself away from watching old 90210 episodes. I'm hooked.
+ Another thing I'm hooked on (and late to the party), Fixer Upper! I've been watching nonstop and my gosh Chip and Jo are great. Even better is that my husband got me into it. Most of my entire family and extended family watches - I guess we'll have a big group for book club when their book comes out this fall. I've also already asked for a day trip to Waco when we're in Dallas this fall. It wasn't hard to convince him - he was all in.
+ It took me all of about two days to finish Emily Maynard's book and I already want to re read it. So good and if you haven't read it, you should. She shares all about her faith and life experiences.
+ As much as I've been wanting to repeat this cadbury egg trifle that I made for Easter last year, I think I might be leaning more towards this bunny patch dirt pudding. I also want to make a cookie platter with about four different things - I might just use half the batter so there's variety but we're not tempted with leftovers.
+ Five days in and I'm really loving this season of spring. With the extra sunlight and slightly warmer temperatures, I'm so much more motivated to get things done. Now if only the warm weather could stick for good.
Thanks for stopping by, Enjoy your day! Xx
