Hump-day Confessions.

I confess that:

5/7  Days a week I wear some sort of pajama bottom all day. (This belly is making it more and more uncomfortable to wear regular pants, even with a belly band.

Lately only half of my house seems to be clean at a time. Either the back half (bedrooms/playroom) or the front half (living, dining and kitchen). 

I sleep in till at least 8 most days- my girls sleep until 9 or 10 most days, so we stay very lazy during the morning. 

I've read more books in the last couple months than I had in the first 8 months of this year. Thank goodness for Goodreads.

Whenever I start to get back into blogging I look for great link-ups like this one to help me find my way.

{Review} Fresh Delicates Laundry Bags.

Wardrobe changes are no joke at my house. I can honestly say my 2 yr old changes at least 4 times during the day just to fit her mood. My 4 yr old probably changes twice, an outfit for the day and pajamas for the night. Just between the two of them that 6 outfits every single day. I feel like I am constantly doing laundry. [Because I am!] I try and keep loads small so they wash fast or quite large so I'm doing less loads. [Basement laundry rooms suck sometimes!]

This past laundry filled week I was able to give the Fresh Delicates Laundry Bags a try. Now I've personally never tried using laundry bags before. 

These bags are supposed to:

-Keep clothes in tact while in the washer or dryer
-Zipper strap will help avoid any loud noise to be made
-Help prevent missing socks!

You are able to wash your clothes in the bag and just move the bag straight to the dryer.

What are the bags made of? Fine mesh, that has a good density and they are soft! 

What sizes? They come in Three sizes 30*40cm, 40*50cm, 50*60cm

So what did I think? I might actually really like these bags. I still have more laundry to do with them so we'll see how they hold up. I tried all 3 sizes with several different loads. First off, read the instructions and only fill them up to 3/4 full. I failed to do so and my laundry didn't dry too well. Next time I forgot to zip it tight and ended up just washing the bag and laundry as separate pieces. 

Third time I actually had it filled right and zipped up tight and it worked wonderfully! These bags were great for keeping our laundry separate. I try and keep my husband and my clothes separate from my girls' or from my sisters and that usually means that I have to do separate loads but these bags made it so I could take two small loads and combine them into one larger load. It was so great to have one less trip to the laundry room. Overall so far I definitely recommend these bags. They are making my life easier one laundry trip at a time. I did get these in exchange for my honest opinion- and don't worry I only share my honest opinion.

Oh Fall.

I'm willing Fall to come early today. I've lit my pumpkin candles, put pumpkin wax in the warmers and I've even thrown up all of my decorations (including pumpkins) throughout the house. I don't know if it'll work but it's definitely changing the feeling in my home.


There's something about cooler weather that calls me. It's the wrapping up in a cozy robe while drinking a warm drink. It's the flavors and scents that fill the air. The change in the leaves on the mountains. It's wearing a big sweater over leggings. (Though we haven't gotten there yet.)

Another thing I've recently noticed about the cooler weather in my life is it bringing out the bookworm in me. In the last week I've read 4 1/2 books. I've been to the library 3 times. I have yet to be disappointed. If you follow me on Goodreads you'll know what I've been reading, but for those of you who don't....


What are you reading right now? Do you love Fall as much as I do?

11 More Questions.

I am so excited to finally feel well enough to get to writing this post. I've been going over answers in my head for weeks, thinking of who to tag, trying to figure out what pictures I want to use if any(turns out I didn't ha- just the 3 I found online). Mistle from Sweet Tea & Hydrangeas tagged me in her Getting to Know Me post back in July! If you don't know her yet, head on over and say hello! 
Questions to Answer:
1. Who inspired you to start a blog? In 2009 my husband and I began trying to start a family. Things were not going easily or as it seems to have happened for those around us. I was constantly wandering the world wide web in hopes of finding answers or ideas, comfort or friendship and that is when I started to come across blogs. I wish I knew the first one I came across or that the others than followed were still around so you could get to know them.
2. Where are you originally from? I was born in Utah but grew up in California, only to move back to Utah towards the end of high school. I feel like both have a special place in my heart.
3. What do you like to do for fun? I love to be creative. Baking, crafting....things like that. I don't do it very often because let's face it, kids come first in my life and if they can't help it doesn't happen. 
4. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be? Ah! I don't know! I feel like Australia would be amazing- my dad spent 2 years there on his mission and loved it. It would be amazing to go and see what he saw!
5. What is your long-term goal for your blog? I honestly just want to remember. Remember the things I thought were a big deal, those things that actually were and all the little in between stuff. I do love the friendships I've made through blogging and hope to continue with that.
6. What are two of your most popular posts? If only I could actually find the good ones- I know for sure that My Ring was one of them, and Guest Post is what comes up in the stats as the top! 
7. What is your favorite tv show or movie? Eek! I watch so many shows & movies that there are too many to just name one! I love My Best Friend's Wedding (or anything with Julia Roberts) PS I Love you & The Other Guys are a few favorites! Also Grey's Anatomy, Scandal & How To Get Away with Murder are a few TV show loves!

8. What advice would you give to bloggers that are just starting out? Just be you and keep going. I feel like trying to fit in with everyone else gets you no where! 
9. What is your favorite food? Mexican- though I've had some amazing homemade Mexican dishes thanks to my wonderful Mexican family. If only I could make it as well as them.
10. If you could listen to one cd for the rest of your life, what would it be? I love the Michelle Branch Spirit Room CD. I've had it for years and every time I find it- I love it more.

11. What is your favorite store to shop at? Target is the top of my list for sure! I try to avoid it so I'm not tempted to buy all of the things!

Now as for finding people to do this list I'll let you decide if you want to or not!

Here are my questions:

Where are you from?

What is the best thing about your town/city?

Favorite recipe?

What makes you want to blog?

What are your favorite blogs to check out?

Do you have a dream vacation?

Favorite books?

What shows are you looking forward to having come up this fall?

Favorite holiday coming up & why?

Coffee Talk {2}

I'm starting this week out with a To-Do List on my mind- making this link-up the perfect one for me!

1. Clean house. My house looks great Monday night-Saturday morning, but sometime between Saturday Morning and Monday afternoon a tornado comes through and manages to destroy everything. I've been trying to work on this but just can't seem to get there. 

2. Subway art printables. I've been working on a few prints, a couple for my house and one for a lady in my neighborhood. I get up before my girls lately and just watch shows while I wait for them to wake up, instead I'm going to start pulling my laptop out and working away. 

3. Pick a hair cut/color. My anniversary is in 4 weeks. I am getting my hair done and have no idea what to do, I'm determined to have at least a couple ideas by the end of the week so I can make an appointment. 

There ya have it! Three of my goals for the week!

Linking up here today!
