The Around The House Survey

A couple months ago I read this post and thought the questions were pretty fun! I thought I’d answer them here and tell you that you should play along too. 🙂

Household Chore I Actually Enjoy

Grocery Shopping and organizing/cleaning the refrigerator.
The Friday night fridge is so much less appealing than the Monday morning fridge. #leftoverstime

Also, I sort of love doing laundry. It makes the house smell good and I love not having any dirty clothes. Folding isn’t my favorite, but I will do it (or convince Garrett to, haha) because I just love how orderly everything feels when it’s hung up or put away.
So these have changes my Laundry Life for the better. #obsessed

Biggest House Disaster

The guest bedroom. Ugh. It can go from zero to total disaster in a very short amount of time!
guest bedroom

Our guest bedroom is actually pretty sizeable (bigger than the sleeping area of the Master actually) which is nice when we have guests. The problem is, because it’s so large we kind of use it as a dumping ground for all the stuff we don’t want to look at.

It’s where we keep our gym bags, stuff we want to take to Goodwill, crafting supplies, extra blankets, etc. I also use the closet to help rotate my wardrobe, and when I pack (like I’m doing now for Scottsdale) I lay all my stuff out on one of the beds…so basically one day it’s spic and span, and the next it’s like Hoarders: Sacramento.

Before Company Comes, I Hide…

My Purse and Work Bag that are always sitting at the kitchen table.

I hate table clutter, so it’s usually clear of detritus but the purses and bags and hoodies hanging over the backs of chairs definitely go when anyone is heading over.

Most Recent Music Download

I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t downloaded music in FOREVER. Garrett does most of that and I just usually listen to what he picks since we like the same stuff. The last thing he downloaded was the Clean Bandit album New Eyes. I’m into it. I downloaded a new Audible book though, can that count?

We-Are-Not-Ourselves

Have you read it? What did you think?

The Last Thing I Bought Online

This Matahari Luminous Firming Anti-Aging Lotion that is supposed to extend the life of a spray tan. (Random, I know.) I’ve never used this brand, so I hope it works.

I Hate To Shop For…

Underwear. (No, no I will not use the word panties. GAH) I just never end up with the right size or style. And you obviously can’t try them on and you have to rely on your own estimation of your ass which, you know, can be inaccurate. I usually either end up with undies that I’m yanking on because they are too small or the wrong style, or ones that come out of the dryer and look like a freaking parachute. Am I alone in this?

I finally solved this problem using this genius suggestion and just took a well fitting pair of chonies and bought multiples. Variety may be the spice of life, but it ain’t the spice of my underwear drawer. HOW THE HELL DID WE END UP DOWN THIS DIRT ROAD?

All that to say, sometimes the most obvious solutions are game changers.

Favorite Family Ritual

Sleepy weekend mornings, drinking coffee and tea on the couch with Buster and Garrett.
I swear to you this dog purrs like a cat! Now, he also sometimes wakes us up at 4 am on a Sunday morning because he's ready for cuddles which is not  as cute as cat-dogging, but I'm not sure I would change anything.

I Sleep In…

A really comfy Queen Size Bed. 😉

I Have A Style Crush On

Courtney Kerr
Courtney Kerr
I like how she balances casual and glam and isn’t afraid to be a little over the top. It was this post that made me NEED a jumpsuit in my life, actually.

I also adore Beth over at Seersuckers and Saddles. I mean, seriously???
Seersuckers

I’m Currently Reading

Well you already know what audiobook I’m reading. The physical book on my nightstand is considerably dishier.

andy cohen
A few entries read before bed and I’m dreaming of Real Housewives drama and a ritzy New York social life. It’s been fun.

How Did I Ever Live Without

The first thing that popped into my head, no joke, was Buster.
Lawn Massage

Cheesy, but true.

Now it’s your turn to answer some of that randomness. Pick a couple and let me know in the comments.

  1. I absolutely HATE doing laundry. Surprisingly, I enjoy vacuuming. It just looks so much better when it’s done (and not covered in little shreds of dog toys lol).

    The last thing I bought online was flash tattoos… because apparently I’m a teenager! Have you heard of them? http://www.flashtat.com/ Oh I also ordered some Paleo meals from Kettlebell Kitchen, since my gym just partnered up with them!

    I haven’t downloaded any new music lately either. I either listen to something on spotify or pandora or I’m listening to podcasts!

    I’m so excited to check out more of your Whole30. I’m thinking of doing it…but I’m nervous!
