Linking up at Our Fifth House today. Lots of fun Valentine’s day projects over there to check out!
Love!! Love!! Love!! the look!! Notice I turned the one in the back sideways so I could see the label easily. The only drawback is that I cannot get a 5lb bag of flour in this container, but that’s okay with me, I will store the extra in the freezer to keep it fresh. There is quite a bit of this vinyl on the roll and I can’t wait to go label crazy in the rest of the kitchen and many other places in the house!! Wahoo!!

Let me just say that this week has been a little crazy!! And, today as it comes to an end I’m having some thoughts.
Satan is real, and working against us everyday. Yes, I can say I had a few days this week when I felt like I was face to face with him.
God is bigger and we have victory through Jesus!! Amen and amen!! I won each time 🙂
Don’t sweat the small stuff. The small stuff is what will get you hung up in a rut, e.v.e.r.y.t.i.m.e.
You cannot make everyone happy. No matter how hard you try. It’s just not possible. For fellow people pleasers like myself. This truth is really difficult to take. But I dare you to grab on and hold on tight and see what freedom and peace you receive. The One you should aim to please is The Master.
My kids are getting older right before my eyes. They are able to do things that they couldn’t do before. They are so much more independent then they used to be. They just don’t need me as much. I really thought I would welcome this, but as they pull away more I find myself running after them saying, “wait, let me…”
Time moves so quickly and I don’t want to waste an ounce of it by
Well today is my first day to myself after our Christmas break. No work, kids are back at school and hubby went to work. I am relishing in the quiet and catching up on my blog reading. We spent the last five days enjoying the mountains with some long time friends skiing. Van and Garrett were the only ones who had skied before so we knew it was going to be an adventure. I was a complete failure – let me just say I am a weakling and I need to start working out (although I really hate exercise of any form); and I really don’t like feeling out of control. So…I attempted to ski one day, and everyone else had a blast the other two days!! The kids LOVED skiing, so I’m afraid I will have to go back. Maybe next time I will be more prepared (stronger and in better shape) and be able to get the hang of it (not feel like I am flying down the hill at the speed of light straight for the trees).
Now that I am back home and things are back to regular-scheduled-programming, I feel the need to get started on something. My kitchen is probably the only area that didn’t get a lot of attention in the purge and de-cluttering of last year so this is my first mountain to tackle here. It is completely overwhelming to me and I think that’s why I haven’t done it before. I start thinking about all the problems and how this doesn’t function, and that doesn’t work, and how I desperately need a pantry, and I just throw my hands up and say “forget it, it’s hopeless – let’s just gut it”. But, then my husband talks me down from my hysteria, as he often has to do, and ever so gently reminds me that would cost a lot of money (because he knows my taste), and that we have to work with what we have. Blah.
So, last night as I was perusing my kitchen pinterest board, I decided I needed to take it apart and do small pieces at a time. I need to see results quickly or I lose interest. So, today I am going to tackle my drawers. Here are some photos I snapped this morning of the worst culprits – don’t judge you know you have these drawers.
