Howdy everyone. I am especially happy this week is almost over. Remember last week when I said this week would be all about getting the kids ready for school? Well that didn’t happen. Instead I was laid up in bed unable to move. For those that don’t know for the past 13 years I have lived with chronic pain (Piriformis Syndrome) and I never really know when it’s going to flare up. This time it started when we were in Maui and then got progressively worse after I got home. So not much got done this week but I’m use to it now and try not to let it get me too down. Thankfully I can now walk again so hopefully this weekend I’ll get caught up.
The cane I had to buy in Maui. Not the type of souvenir I had in mind 🙂
My Favorite Weekly Links:
So many great links these last couple of weeks, I’ve had a hard time narrowing them down!
If there is one thing I have a love for it’s organized closets used in creative ways. My passion for organizing took off many many years ago when I created an office in a closet in my 900 foot home. It made me so happy!
Here are two closets that are drool worthy:
Craft Closet Organization ~ @ My Sophia Ryan
Coat Closet turned Office Space ~ @ Fynes Designs
Five Ways to Simplify Your Life Today ~ @ Home Sanctuary
Purging: The Dirty Truth ~ @ The Handmade Home
Kids Can Clean the Bathrooms with free printable checklists ~ @ Life as Mom
A Challenge to Slow Down ~ @ Chatting at the Sky
What I’m Loving On:
Today I’m going to share two of my favorite things from holidays. They are a little more on the expensive side but I loved having both of them on my recent trip. The first item up is a bag I purchased specifically for this trip to keep me organized without a lot of bulk. This Flutter Mini cross-body bag from Lug is awesome for travel!
It comes in a ton of colors, but I was boring and bought the one in grey. This bag has a ton of pockets and also a separate cell phone pocket. It even has a side water bottle pocket that opens up when needed. It is perfect for day trips and sight seeing. I loved that it fit my camera perfectly as well. Seriously I love this bag and nope I’m not affiliated in any way. Just one very happy customer.
Speaking of cameras. I also bought a new one of those for the trip. I didn’t want to have to bring my big camera with me but still wanted a really good camera to take pictures with that wasn’t overly expensive. I purchased the Canon Powershot ELPH 330 HS for around $120 on sale and it worked great and didn’t take up a lot of space.
If I had known that my husband was going to end up using it more than I did though, I might not have been so quick to buy it in pink 🙂
What are you loving on this week?
