It has been pretty frigid here, and traipsing back and forth from a tripod to a snow covered fence in sockless boots and exposed hands has been a little eye opening (and stupid?) Anything under twenty degrees and my pictures look….like I’m freezing and standing in the snow wishing I wasn’t there. Here’s to a winter of figuring this out, or just settling for some great, indoor photography;) Since cuddling indoors and being swathed in fleece blankets sound better, it just seems more fun to find more activities and projects that keep me out of the snow and are better for my home/mind. And my cold reddened fingers.
Wear: I’ve discovered lately that leggings can work in so many more ways than I previously thought (gasp!) Layered under shorter dresses and skirts, they create a more dimensional way of dressing and are a fun alternative to tights. Especially in fun patterns (like leopard!) and colors.
Read: I got a Kindle Fire for Christmas(!) and read no less than five books in the past two weeks. (I adore reading.) My favorite of favorites? Carry On Warrior by the author of Momastery blog. It is life changing and just filled me up with all these plans and ways to better my life and those around me. I recommend.
Want: I’ve been looking around my house lately and realizing that most of what we have was accumulated 10+ years ago when we got married. I shake my head at a lot of it and wonder why on earth I registered for it. I really want to update our pots and pans and buy a new set of dishes/glassware that didn’t come from the local bar.
Need: To be honest, I can always find a ton of things I need, and can convince myself of anything. (More boots!) Need items always come down to something boring, like a haircut or a new kitchen spatula. Boo. Can I say I need a camel coat and we can call it a day?
Do: We moved in six months ago and painted a bazillion rooms in this house, creating really nice spaces for the kids and our family. Yet my master bathroom has an old, stained shower curtain we have had forever and bleach stained towels. I really want to paint it a fresh color, add a new shower curtain and new towels. And also increase the storage options as it is overflowing in all the wrong places.
Tell me, what are you wearing, reading, wanting, needing, doing?
P.S. Don’t forget to come back tomorrow and link up your POP OF COLOR outfits! I can’t wait to see what you’ve put together;) The link up will be open for a week and I will show off my personal fave on this blog after it ends. Will it be YOU?
