Back to our typical Sunday breakfast – pancakes.

The trackpad on my laptop stopped working so a trip to the Apple store was necessary 😦

I swear we have other food in the house aside from Kraft mac and cheese…

I decided to go through my clothes and donate things I don’t wear anymore. First up was sweaters and it felt so good to get rid of at least 5. I’m keeping the maybes for a few weeks to see if I reach for them.

A mid afternoon snack since folding laundry is such hard work.

Continued to readΒ “You Are a Badass” on the couch before dinner.

A healthy dinner of brown rice and black bean salad and lettuce salad. The goal is to get back into having a bowl of salad with dinner every night like we used to.

Question of the day: What was the highlight of your weekend?

  1. I love going through my clothes and getting rid of stuff I don’t wear! My rule is if I don’t wear it within a year, I probably don’t need it πŸ™‚
    And mac and cheese is where it’s at! Have a great day Maureen!

    1. It was so nice to get rid of so many items! I started small so that I don’t burn out which I think was the right move. Plus I’ll donate the items so those who will wear it can use it!
      Mac and cheese really is the best. Thanks Erinn! Enjoy your Monday πŸ™‚

    1. I felt so good after going through just one type of clothing. I considered doing everything but thought I would just get burned out. Slow and steady wins the race right?! Every time we have mac and cheese, I saw I need to learn how to make it from scratch so it’s a little healthier.

      Have a lovely day Emily πŸ™‚

  2. We do a yearly donation of things we don’t wear or use. It’s nice that the stuff goes to people who actually need it, rather than sitting unused and unloved in storage. Super refreshing and helps to keep the house from getting cluttered too!

    1. I have a pile in my closet of items to get donated that I’ll add to if something doesn’t fit and donate periodically. It was so nice to go from two stuffed drawers to one that was organized. Let’s hope I have similar luck with other articles of clothing!

    1. It is so cozy, I love it! Seeing friends that live far away is the best part of the holidays. I’m that friend in my group so Christmas will be a lot of fun. I’m glad your son got to get some loving from his grandparents πŸ™‚

  3. I had a Friendsgiving this weekend and it was so wonderful. Now that I live abroad, my friends have become my family and it was so nice to celebrate with some Americans. And, of course, spending all day Sunday on the couch eating leftovers & watching Wonder Woman. Love pumpkin pie!

    1. That’s awesome! I get what you mean by that. Granted I live on the East Coast and grew up in Chicago, but my boyfriend’s family has been so welcoming and has become my second family because of it. Leftovers are the best part of Thanksgiving dinner πŸ™‚

  4. I love keeping my wArdrobe limited now:) I used to have a large wardrobe because I thought I needed it as I worked with the same people every day, but they really don’t care what I wear and now I feel like I get my money’s worth:)

    1. I feel like we think people notice what we wear all the time but I don’t think they do! I’m excited to get rid of items I don’t wear so that I can take stock of what I have. Going forward, I’m going to buy more quality pieces so they last longer too!

      1. Ya that’s the difficult part. I made a list of what I wanted and then each paycheque I bought one thing. It at least spread out the cost a bit:)

    1. I’m so glad you love them! I have a lot of fun writing them. There’s still a lot of work to do with going through all my clothes but slow and steady is much better than getting burnt out. If we’re not wearing certain items, why not donate them for someone else to enjoy!
