I found this prompt on Ali Edwards’ blog and thought it was a good one to capture a slice of my everyday life right now.
Here’s what’s on my…
VANITY | I guess my bathroom counter is my vanity and it’s almost empty right now. When you have your house up for sale (even if it’s under contract) you really can’t keep your personal belongings out in the open. Just a nice chrome lotion dispenser and my favorite automatic soap dispenser.
PERENNIAL TO DO LIST | Plan garden boxes (this time for a new yard). Sort through everyone’s clothing – donate old items, decide what new items need to be purchased, mend pieces that need repairs. Work on new releases for National Scrapbook Day sale (starts on May 1st). Prepare list of summer activities to do with kids.
ITINERARY | Planning to travel to New Mexico in the summer. We will be spending a week at Bear Lake with my husband’s family. We will also make our yearly visit to the Utah Shakespeare Festival.
FANTASY ITINERARY | a warm beach somewhere – all of our beach vacations in the last decade have been to colder Oregon beaches (still beautiful) or to San Diego during a rare cold spell. I would really like to just sit on a warm and sunny beach for awhile.
PLAYLIST | Mumford & Sons – I will wait, The Lumineers – Ho Hey, Natasha Bedingfield – Unwritten, One Direction – You’re Beautiful (don’t judge), lots of 80’s music.
NIGHTSTAND | only a lamp (staged house right now)
WORKOUT PLAN | I think about working out. I wish that burned calories.
TOP 5 LIST | Hanging out with my hubby & kids, sunny days, making memories, taking photos, and digital scrapbooking
BUCKET LIST | a train trip all the way up the west coast, foreign travel with my kids, getting both of my kids through college, lose the extra weight I’ve been carrying around, get “caught up” on my kids scrapbooks, find time to relax and enjoy life.
MIND | Lots of scrapbooking and design projects. I have way more ideas than time! New house planning, old house selling. Garden and landscape dreams.
BLOGROLL | my parents blogs, The Daily Digi, The Digi Show (comments), Capturing Magic, One Little Bird, Listgirl, Capture Your 365, Ali Edwards, Becky Higgins, How About Orange, and a few hundred more. I follow a lot of designers and digi store blogs.
WALLS OF YOUR FAVORITE ROOM IN YOUR HOUSE | Since I’m busy dreaming of my new house, I’m going to list my favorite paint choices there. We painted the dining room with Sherwin Williams Rocky River and I absolutely love it!
LIQUOR SHELF | I don’t drink
LAST CREDIT CARD STATEMENT | We have no credit card debt and we don’t use them. Very happy about this!
SCREENSAVER | This one I found via Free People. It’s happy and cheerful.
TV EVERY NIGHT | We don’t watch tv every night, we mostly catch up on our shows over the weekend (Survivor, Top Gear, Mythbusters, Once Upon a Time, some Big Bang Theory). I usually watch an animated movie on my iPad as I go to sleep. I’m a kid at heart and I love Disney and Pixar classics.
Thanks to Ali (and her sister) for the inspiration!
