Favorite Organizing space / Desk

I've been looking for something to put in an area of my kitchen & I think this may just be it!!!!  A cute little work space to put my laptop or tablet - & cute little baskets can sit on the upper shelves! 

Favorite Pet Storage

I've been looking for a better / nicer looking storage for the dog food.
This doesnt hold all the dog food we use - but I still like this idea.
& it would be cute to store toys or leashes & anything else for your pet.
This would be more like the Treat container for our 4 dogs - LOL

Favorite Stool

This is called a Wobble Stool Standing Desk Chair...
I just think it looks like FUN!

Not the full sit down - & it rocks & twists.
Perfect if you're moving around a lot at a desk.

Favorite Hair Tool

You can put this on the side of your sink or your make up table & get your hair iron or curling iron heated up.  I like it for a place to lay down the straightener while I'm sectioning off hair. Seems like a safer place - mine, when I lay on the sink, tends to teeter off or down into the sink.  

Favorite Sweater

I love this is like a kimono & a sweater all wrapped up in one.

Favorite Foot Rest

I love putting my feet up on something under my desk or a table
its supposed to be good for your back as well.
But I really like this because you can turn it over & use the other side of this & then it has a rocking motion so you can stretch out your feet - which is good when you have plantar faucitis or other foot issues!

Favorite ClipBoard

I would LOVE to have this in my foyer.
You could change out a picture on it for each month or season
but I'm thinking I could do a quote in pretty lettering or paint/draw a picture & put it in there.  
It'd REALLY be cute with a kid's art work changed out on it.

Thankful Thursday #342


This week I am Thankful for:

Health Insurance
My goodness... I am SOOOO thankful. I got my hospital bill from my 3 days of being in the hospital in December & all the tests ran & all the ER stuff. I mean, when its a thick envelope & it covers front AND back - I was holding my breath. Luckily (unluckily?) where I had to go to the ER back in April, I met my deductible... so my hospital bill was under $50.00.  I seriously teared up in gratitude.  Hubby even said, what do you think would have happened if you had your old self insured insurance?  I'd be selling a car.

Do It Yourself Sleep Study
It's not really a Do it Yourself - but I didnt realize they did sleep studies now at home.  They're still trying to figure out what caused that TIA so sleep apena can cause blood clots & strokes (who knew?) - so they were checking me for that.  I'm not a big snorer & I dont have a lot of issues with sleep so I dont think this is an issue - but covering all the ground.  I dreaded going to a strange place to do this but they end up sending me home with this thing that wrapped around my chest, a tube that went in my nose & a oxygen meter for my finger... simple enough. I had to wear it for 4 days... so we'll wait for the results - but man, technology is just amazing.

This was exactly how mine looked.  
I actually laid on my stomach & it didnt bother me either.

Warm House
Its that time of year where I am so thankful for a warm & cozy home. I know it really is a blessing to have a space that just gives comfort & shelter - especially in the bitter cold evenings.

I am hooked on these things.  I got one that had Santa's on it for the holidays & enjoyed it so much, I got another one to use the rest of the year.  I keep it in my purse so if i'm out & get an iced coffee, I can throw it in & not have a sweating, dripping cup in my car or in my hands.

This is the medium... which actually fits a VENTI or LARGE size drink.  FYI - I know I got confused on the sizes & didnt think it would fit - but it does.

Tell me something good about your week!

1. January 25th is National Opposites Day. 'They' say opposites you agree, and if so is that a good thing? Or do you subscribe more to a 'birds of a feather' philosophy? 

I think you need both in your life. I know me & Hubby are a little of that. We have so many things we are totally polar opposites on & I think that helps us when we need the other end of the spectrum.  If one of us needs the optimist side or the other needs the realistic point of view... if one of us needs the push to be more outgoing while the other needs the hold back to be more reserved.  But at the base of things, we have the same core values - so I think it all works.

2. Something you're glad to have behind you? Something you're glad is ahead of you? 

I'm glad to have the holidays behind me. They stress me out man... It always feels like a breath of fresh air when you get all the decorations up & your house feels all put together again.

I'm glad Spring is ahead of us... 54 more days!  & I've already started to notice more daylight in the evening. At least 30 minutes more of it - & it feels GLORIOUS!

3. Your favorite hot food? Cold food? Are you a fan of breakfast for dinner? 

I dont know that I have a favorite hot food. I just know if its SUPPOSED to be hot, I want it hot.  Same with cold.  Favorite food is like picking a favorite color to me - I cant do it. I'm very indecisive. 

As for breakfast for dinner - LOVE IT. We do it seldom so it feels like a treat to us when we do it. & when we do the breakfast for dinner thing, we go full out. Biscuits, eggs, hash browns - ALL THE CARBS!!!   If you're going to do it - do it right

4. Are you someone who always arrives to appointments/events early or do you tend to run late? Last thing you were late for? 

I get such anxiety at the thought of being late to something. I hate it. My dad raised me that if I'm 5 minutes early to an appointment, I'm already late.... on the flip side & going back to question 1 - Hubby is notorious for being late.  He hates getting somewhere early where he has to wait so he'll prefer to roll in right as something has already started.  DRIVES .... ME... INSANE. 

Me with Hubby every time we go somewhere

Last thing we were late for was Christmas at my sister in laws... we hit two HUGE accidents & it took us nearly 2 hours to arrive.  I know I was green in the face by the time we got through all the traffic, starts & stops & detours & twists & turns.

5. "What good is the warmth of summer without the cold of winter to give it sweetness?" John Steinbeck....Your thoughts? 

Makes sense.  Can you really appreciate something if you never have to go without?  When its the hottest of summer, I look so forward to the cooler days... when its freezing outside & everything is iced over, I look forward to that heat of the sun again.  Value in each.  

Though, I do think I could appreciate it if it could stay a comfortable 70 degrees every day...I think I could live with that.

6. Insert your own random thought here. 

Does anyone else need a pretty water bottle or glass/cup to drink water more? Just me?  I've just ordered some new Tervis cups to try & give me a boost to try & get more water.  I'm like a child that needs to be bribed.

Got this one from Amazon - LINK

Favorite Coat Rack

I love this - giving me vintage vibes!
Didnt ever teen girl have those plastic ones like this in their room back in the 80's & 90's?

Favorite Candy Gift

Reese's is the Hubby's favorite - so this may need to be his Valentine's gift.
it could last him maybe a week - LOL

Favorite Mittens

Oh I get it... these are NOT practical at ALL...

But I bet they sure are WARM!!!!!
& they come in a bunch of colors!

Favorite Kitchen Mats

I love you get 2 sizes in this & right now they are 40% off.
I need to get an order in fast myself.
I love the cushy under my feet at the oven or sink!

& these wipe up so if you spill anything on them, you just wash it off! Smart!

Favorite Drink Holder

It's an adapter to put in your cup holder for the bigger water bottles you may tote around. I love this because I know some of mine will topple right out of my cup holder where it doesnt quite fit in.

Favorite Doggie Safety

You can clip your dog in the seat with this for all the safety.
Our Ozzie has become quite the car rider - LOVES to go with Hubby everywhere - but loves to sit IN HIS LAP... & he's not a little pup. 

I need to get one of these - I'll be the bad guy.

Thankful Thursday #341


Grateful for:

Work from home
While Hubby had COVID, I was able to work from home again to see if I was going to test positive... which (knocking on wood) hasn't happened - ANOTHER thing to be thankful for. But the ability to keep working now when I am not in the office is such a useful tool.  It's funny, we were talking about how life has changed in the work field so much over the past 2 years, post COVID.  

Hair at home
I didnt want to be around anyone in case I was positive, & I had a hair appointment scheduled. My fantastic hair stylist ended up making a kit for me so I could cover these grays at home & I wouldnt have to reschedule my future appointments.  I have to say, I think I did pretty good at it.  Nothing like she can do - but enough to last me till my next appointment.

I tried a hack I saw on Instagram wrapping your hair around paper towels
it worked out really well actually

SURVIVED nearly 3 hours in my car
I did a click list order to pick up my groceries & ran down one evening to zip fast & get the food & get home.  Well, the joke was on me.  I was stuck in my car for nearly 3 hours!  First, Click list, it took over 30 minutes to get the food. I think everyone is back to doing this with covid positive cases soaring.... & then I picked up dinner & sat in a drive thru for 30 minutes.  Chick Fil-A mac & cheese is worth it though.  & then the traffic jam of all traffic jams. There must have been some God awful wreck going up the hill that you have to go to get to my town... & you couldnt do it.  Traffic was at a stand still for hourssssssss.  If you know me, you know traffic is my own personal hell. I honestly thought I was going to have another mini-stroke because I was so stressed out - & so dang car sick. If I didnt have Chick-Fil-A tea, I dont know what I would have done.  When I got home, I threw all the groceries on the counter, the food on the table & I went to bed.  What a night.

Hubby finally tested negative over the weekend.  I made him keep his mask on in the house for an extra 5 days after the 5 that he was to quarantine for. I wore mine too - but I'm glad he came out of this.  This was a rougher go than his first round of COVID, but he is back to his ole snarky self.

Walk in the Cold
I think last time I walked about a walk in the rain... this week, I went walking in the cold. It was 32 degrees but I wanted to get some fresh air after wearing a mask for a week. It was so chilly but you warm up fast moving.  I really enjoyed the cold wind on my face.

Day Off
I really appreciated a day off work on Monday.  I honestly relaxed & did basically NOTHING all day (still got in my daily moving for minimum 20 minutes).... I love relaxing mornings though.  The doggies do too.

Tell me something good about your week!

Favorite Coin Organizer

You put this in your cup holder in your car & its spring loaded to put the coins in & you can just slide out what you need. I HATE having coins just thrown into the tray of my car so I may need to get this - if anything - put this in the glove compartment.

Favorite Condiment Fork

I love people that come up with genius ideas!
So you can put this on your jar of pickles or olives & you can grab what you need & not have to always waste a fork out of your drawer.
