Around The House

Hello!!! Wow, it seems like it's been forever since I wrote a blog post. I've just been spending tons of time at home with my family while everyone is off for winter break. I don't think I even cooked dinner (other than Christmas dinner) over the last couple of weeks. We just did take out every night and boy, was it nice! Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! We sure did. It was so relaxing and just about perfect. :)

So, I picked up a few things on sale after Christmas and I thought I'd share them with you. First up is this set of metal canisters...

I just love them! Now I finally have a place to store all those bio-degradable pods for my new Keurig. :) Here are a couple more pics...

I got them both for about $10!

I also found these darling little cable knit sweater nesting bowls...

Love the detail and the red on the inside! Not bad for $5. :)

 They go quite well with my cable knit pillows and cable knit mug. ;)

I have to share one of my youngest son's Christmas presents. He somehow found out they made these...

Yep, it's an entire bag of nothing but the marshmallow charms from Lucky Charms cereal. Ha ha! Our dentist is going to LOVE us!!!

The only other thing I recently bought was some windshield wipers for my car, but I'm sure you're not interested in that. :) The dealership where we bought our vehicle sent us a Christmas card with a $25 gift card in it good towards service, parts, apparel, etc. I was needing new windshield wipers anyway, so I put the gift card toward that. Exciting stuff, no? :)

I exercised restraint and waited until a few days after Christmas to take down all my decorations. Usually I'm itching to take everything down bright and early on the 26th. It felt SO good to get back to my everyday decor...

I got out my Fall decor in September, then we went straight to Halloween decor, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas, so it's been almost 4 months since I've seen my "normal" decor. I kinda missed it. :)

Well, hopefully I'll get back into a regular habit of blogging soon. I already have one more post lined up that includes a few of my "favorite things" that I can't wait to share with you. I thought instead of doing a big post with a ton of my favorite things, I'd just do more frequent posts that will include a handful of things I've been enjoying lately. Sometimes I wait so long between my favorite things posts, that I forget to include some stuff, so hopefully doing these smaller more frequent posts will help. 

Wishing each and every one of you a very Happy New Year and a healthy, happy, and blessed 2015 and beyond!
