Home, hygge

So, um how do you say it? Hygge?

I’ve spent some time this week discovering the Danish concept of “Hygge.”  It’s essentially the idea of being cozy in a charming environment and connecting with others.  Gather with your friends to drink cocoa and watch a holiday movie: hygge.  Sit on the couch all day playing on your phone: not hygge.  What I love… Continue reading So, um how do you say it? Hygge?

Merry Pamper Month!

AAAAAGGGHHHHH! A new month starts tomorrow and I still suck at menu planning, my Flylady habit for November.  If you all will humor me, I’m going to try to stick with this one for a while longer and continue to post about it here for accountability’s sake. But tomorrow a new habit starts and it’s… Continue reading Merry Pamper Month!

I Currently Own Two Pair of Pants….My Experience With the Konmari Method of Decluttering

My headline is mildly misleading.  I have two and a half pair of pants, two that I don’t hate and one that I do hate but I’ve dragged out of the “goodwill pile” three times now in desperation. See the Konmari Method basically works like this: category by category, you pull out all items in… Continue reading I Currently Own Two Pair of Pants….My Experience With the Konmari Method of Decluttering

Mom, What’s For Dinner? Vol. 3

Holy Yes, it’s Friday! It’s been another week that I’ve basically sucked at menu planning.  Wait, no, I’m awesome at menu planning; it’s the shopping and execution that’s been giving me trouble.  So here’s how this week went down:  Sunday I made chili.  It was awesome.  Go me!  I peaked early.  Monday, I didn’t feel… Continue reading Mom, What’s For Dinner?

A Day in the Life of a Working Mom

Time Management Basics First, let me say that I don’t really like the title “working mom” because I’m hard pressed to think of a mom who doesn’t work.  But work-away-from-home-mom is too much of a mouthful, so I’ll stick with the standard.  I’ve already shared with you the magic that is Flylady; I couldn’t keep… Continue reading A Day in the Life of a Working Mom

Mom, What’s For Dinner? Vol. 2

So my last post was the instructions for the soup I ended up making Monday night.  Tuesday, I made the pork chops. Wednesday I did the French dips, which nobody ate because nobody was home, which is usually when I give up on menu planning.  Last night, Thursday, no one was hungry at dinnertime so… Continue reading Mom, What’s For Dinner?

Mom, What’s For Dinner? Vol. 1

Ok I know there’s a saying about the “best laid plans…” but I’m in a frazzled state and can’t quite remember it right now.  For accountability’s sake, I was fully planning to menu plan on Thursday, grocery shop over the weekend and share our family’s menu plan with you today.  The menu plan is pretty… Continue reading Mom, What’s For Dinner?

Fail to Plan or Plan to EAT!

Menu Planning Week One In Flylady-land, our habit for the month of November is menu planning.  I will admit, in the past, this is not a skill I’ve developed so I’m excited to give it another go.  My menu planning usually goes something like this: Do you see what the problem is?  I see it… Continue reading Fail to Plan or Plan to EAT!

Wheeee, I’m Flying…An Introduction to the Flylady System

I want to take some time and space on this blog to introduce you to my mentors.  These are the teachers I’ve found along the way whose programs have helped me get my rear in gear.  I would not be able to enjoy life like I do without applying the principles I’ve learned from them. … Continue reading Wheeee, I’m Flying…An Introduction to the Flylady System
