A Challenge Update and a Video

Well, hello! I meant to give an update on my declutter challenge yesterday but we’ve been battling a stomach virus here. Whine, whine, whine! We’ve made it through the worst I think, so things are looking up. Phew!

Unfortunately, my box of donations this week is small. I’ll try to make up for that next week, but I can’t make any promises.

Okay- let’s keep this short and sweet.

The Box


The Contents

  • stuffed toy pig
  • stress ball
  • 2 small lotions
  • 8 pairs of shoes

That’s a total of 12 items this week. I may or may not be crying a little. ­čÖé Okay, add that to last week’s total of 46 items and we have a grand total of 58! It’s not a bad total for just two weeks, and remember that I’m doing this throughout 2017. So hopefully there will be plenty more.

Friday’s Video

This is the Target Beauty Box for January.

This month Target offered two boxes: a $5.00 box and a $10.00 box. I purchased the $5.00 box and made a video so you can compare the contents of it to the Walmart Beauty Box that Beks made a video for just a few days ago. The box from Walmart is also $5.00. Nice comparison!

Which box did you like better this time around? Have you been decluttering? How are you doing with your goals for this year?

Have a great weekend!


Is this what a heating pad is for?

Today I woke up with some awful back pain and found it difficult to move. Yay. So the girls out in the barn gave me quizzical looks and continued to chew on their hay as I less-than-gracefully checked their accommodations.



“Why are you walking like that?”


I know, I know! What is this? A farm blog?!

Okay- moving on…I thought I would show you the amazing wreath I made. When I say amazing I actually mean…incredibly simplistic in all ways. It took me a long time because my child was running around and trying to destroy decorations as I made it. I didn’t take more pictures because I didn’t think I was going to blog about it, but here we are.


I was going to put some more pinecones on, but I didn’t have anymore at the time so I just left it. And put it on my door. I smile when I see it, because I actually made one this year. Even if it wasn’t exactly the way I wanted it to be- I’m still glad it’s there. Boo to perfectionism!

Where’s the beauty stuff?

Due to my great fascination with unboxing videos- I have made my own! Yes, that’s right. Only I can’t spend a ton of money on it, so…the first video I will be uploading is the Walmart Fall Beauty Box! (For all of you that are rolling your eyes:┬áHey! I’ve got to start somewhere! Don’t be a hater…) There will be more unboxings to come. That being said- I won’t be uploading it until tomorrow. So stay tuned.


p.s. If you want to put on some lipstick or eat a bowl of ice cream today- go ahead and enjoy it! ­čÖé I’m going to grab that heating pad.
