In The Mood

Photo from Flickr
 It's hard to go on vacation and then jump back into the work routine- I need to put on my game face. Housekeeping with Caren had a list of things that will get you in the cleaning mood:

1. Be attired correctly- comfortable clothes that can get dirty, hair pulled back, good shoes
2. Inspirational tv shows and magazines
3. Have the right tools- caddy, towels, vac
4. Timer- set a time to finish each room
5. Music- I use an Ipod always
6. To-do list- easier to keep on track if you just knock them off the list
7. Set deadlines- they help you make the time to finish

The Stocked Kitchen

 The Stocked Kitchen by Sarah Kallio and Stacy Krastins comes out July 1st. They give you a master grocery list and provide you with 300 recipes. I could have used that yesterday when we were at the store and couldn't figure out what to make for the week. The list will reduce grocery bills, stress levels, trips to the market, and food waste. Sold!

Packing Prep

Photo from
 I'm going to New York next week and was looking for outfits to pack for humid weather- a lot easier than packing for a New York winter. Light cotton, nothing clingy, airy shoes, no heavy jewelry- I am thinking of a lighter strap purse that breathes because I am going to be walking around with it all day. I know I am going to melt but I will to do what I can to ease the pain.

 Cake plate window display- eye catching!

 I can see so many accidents with these displays- beautiful and dangerous. It's not worth the stress!

My interest in work or blog posts is hard to come by these days. It's too nice out- gotta go play.
