Happy Homemaker Monday

Hi Lovelies!

How was your weekend?

Mine was very good, filled with lots of reading and relaxing with a little bit of cleaning thrown into the mix. Well, here we go again, it's Monday and we have a busy week ahead of us with 4th of July this week and trying to figure out what we are going to do and what we are going to eat.

Anyways, enough jabbering, let's get on with Happy Homemaker Monday!


As I look outside the window:

It's sunny with a beautiful blue sky and it's going to be a hot one!

Right now I am:

Sitting in the living room, watching the Disney channel with the Little, and typing this post.

 On my beside table:

I guess I should say on my book shelf. Here's the list of what I am reading right now.

Dr. Sleep
The Fault in Our Stars (my buffer book)
Echos of Titanic (another buffer book for Dr. Sleep)


On my TV this week:

I'm just watching Orange is the New Black on Netflix and thinking about watching The Walking Dead. 

Listening to:

The Little reading her superhero books.

On the menu this week:

Monday- Tacos, chips and salsa
Tuesday- Chicken, penne pasta, fried squash and zucchini
Wednesday- Meatballs with beef gravy, mashed potatoes, salad
Thursday- Sandwiches and chips
Friday-
Saturday-
Sunday-

On my to do list:

Grocery shop
Work on orders
Mail orders
Steam carpets

What I am creating:

Stickers, stickers, and more stickers

My simple pleasure:

Reading a good book

Homemaking tips:

Did you know that peroxide gets rid of mold in the bathroom? I just found this out today. It works wonders!! Who knew?!?

Looking around the house:

My house needs some serious TLC. It's pretty much a disaster area right now, but I am slowly working on it, one room at a time. 

Prayer list:  

My husband as he decides what graduate program to pick for the Fall semester.

Happy Sunday! Guess what time it is.....that's right....it's time for Sunday Social. Grab the button, answer the questions and link up with Neely! 

This week's questions:

1. What was your college major?

My original major in college was Elementary education, but I changed it during my Sophomore year to Psychology and my minor was Sociology. Now, I'm working on a Master's degree.

2. What is the best purchase you have made lately?

Let's see I haven't bought very much for myself lately, but the last thing I bought myself was a bag for my planner. I bought the fold it up organizer in Big Dot from Thirty One!  I love it!!

I'm Lovin'.......

Hi Lovelies!

Happy Tuesday, or what's left of it! Today I talking about things that I'm lovin'. These are in no particular order!

1. Orange is the New Black


I recently discovered this series on Netflix and I am addicted to it. I'm still in season one and I think I'm on episode #5.

2. My planner.

I love writing all of my lists in it, decorating it, and making stickers for it. It's how I spend my
"me time" and it's very relaxing.

3. Fruit salad



I'm loving fruit salad. I think I have been eating it with every meal. I love how simple it is to make and how it basically goes with anything that I am eating. Plus, it doesn't heat up the kitchen and I can make it with just about any fruit.

4. Organization.

Right now, I'm on an organization kick. I think I have organized every closet so far, and now I am working on the kitchen cabinets. Now, if I could just make my refrigator lool like this, I'll be one happy Momma!!



5. Keeping Up with the Kardashians



Yes, this is my gulity pleasure and I am not ashamed to admit it.

Life Lately

Hi Lovelies!

Long time no see, huh? We have been busy little bees over here in our neck of the woods. We have had dance classes, dress rehearsals, class assignments, papers, and packaging order from my etsy shop. So, yeah, we have been busy. Here is a small recap of what has been going on:

Dance Class/Dress Rehearsal:

The Little has her dance recital this weekend and at the dress rehearsal she looked to cute doing her little dances. She looked to cute in her costumes. 

Class Assignments and Papers:

I am taking an 8 weeks graduate class that has kept me pretty busy. We have papers and assignments due every week. I don't particularly like this class, but I'm sticking with it will be happy if I can pull out a "B".

Etsy Shop:

My shop has kept me pretty busy for the last few weeks. I love it. When I opened it I never thought it take off the way it has. I sell accessories that can be used in planners, all orders can be customized. Here is the shop link if anyone is interested: www.sweetpeadesignstoo.etsy.com. Also, this week is the launch of the new Erin Condren Life Planner (2014-2015). Here is my referral link if anyone is interested: https://www.erincondren.com/referral/invite/angelavantine-8570

So, that's what we have been up to lately! What have you been up to?

Monday Confessions

Hi Lovelies! 

Well, Monday is almost over and I have a few confessions to make.

1) I HATE Mondays, doesn't everyone? I wish the weekend lasted longer!

2) I did something really stupid this weekend that landed me in the ER. It started Saturday after I mowed the back yard. Apparently I did not drink enough water and I did not rest. As soon as I came in I started supper and cleaned the kitchen. Then I put the Little bed and started on some homework. Right before I went to bed I started to feel dizzy. I thought sleeping would make me feel better, but I was very wrong. I woke up and felt dizzy, I was light headed and would break out into a cold sweat every few minutes. I then started feeling nauseous and told the Husband to take me to the ER. Once I got there I told nurses and doctors what was going on. My blood sugar was testes and it was normal, then I was given an EKG which was normal too. So, after 3 hours of sitting and waiting, I was finally told that I was mildly dehydrated. So, yeah, water is very important and I need to drink more water. 
Lesson learned the hard way. 

3) I am excited for the Little's first dance recital next weekend.

4) I am way behind on the laundry, as always.

5)  My house is a mess and really needs some TLC.

Well, that's all I have for tonight! What are your confessions?
