Loving how chill this month has been. I knew I wanted January to be a slow-down month after the craziness that was October-December (moving + the holidays), and it has been just that. We haven’t made hardly any social plans during the nights and weekends; our free time has been spent working on putting our house together, building furniture from IKEA, and doing some decluttering. I’m hoping that our house will finally be all put together by the end of the month and we can start hosting get-togethers for family and friends again.
Loathing selling furniture on Craigslist. People can be so weird. I’ll get an email saying “Hey is your _____ still available? I want to buy it from you today!” and then I respond saying “yes!” and then I never hear from them again. And then there are the people who offer me significantly less money for my furniture than what I asked. I don’t even respond back to those people.
Planning our trip to Seattle. The flights are booked. The PTO is approved. I just need to book a place to stay on AirBNB and figure out what we’re going to do there!
Reading The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. I’ve been in the mood to declutter lately so I’m reading this book for motivation. I’m hoping this book will inspire me to be ruthless when it comes to getting rid of stuff instead of holding on to things I don’t need/use just for nostalgia reasons.
Watching beauty vlogs on Youtube. I feel like I’ve learned so much about makeup products and how to apply makeup in such a short amount of time. Seriously, if you need to learn how to do anything and you’re a visual person, look it up on Youtube!
Feeling pretty good lately. Thanks to Whole30, my holiday bloat is gone and I have more energy these days. Thanks to not making too many social plans this month, I haven’t been feeling very stressed at all. Let’s hope I can carry these good feelings into February.
Working on my home office. I recently got new office furniture and now I’m so much more excited about having my own office. I will be posting pictures on my blog next week so stay tuned for those.
Looking forward to being done with Whole30. I’m really excited for Pizza Guys and/or a night out where I don’t have to cook or do dishes. Ten days left!
