So first imagine that I put this pretty little apron on to help me check off all the items on my ‘list of things I must do before Blissdom’. Why? Well, because when you’re wearing an apron like this, you’re not just a SAHM who has on lounge pants and a stained hoodie…..you’re a goddess. And second, when you’re wearing an apron this cute, you do not have chores to do….you have dragons to slay.
It has always been my firmly held conviction that leaving the family for a day or two goes by much smoother for all if you leave goodies. This morning I baked a couple loaves of chocolate chip banana bread.
And for the men in my life, I cooked up a little chicken-sausage gumbo….that will taste even better tomorrow. Yes, I do love them like crazy!
Then I marched my superhero/dragon-slayin’ skillz to the laundry room. I took down four loads of laundry. Just like it was nothing. Don’t hesistate. Just do it.
I then began my own personal packing. And let’s just say….that’s gonna take a while.
I thought I should clean this out….lest I spend all my time at Blissdom digging in here for stuff, and thus not getting to meet all of you. And can I just say, when did Hobby Lobby decide they would be the expert on purses too. How can I concentrate on yarn and scrapbook paper when cute purses are lurking around?
And then there were several batches of these…..
And on my excursion to town to look for the cutest and warmest socks ever, my girls found the cutest stapler ever. Old school. Vintage. Heavy duty. Red. But alas, no socks. Maybe I’ll staple a pair of my hol-y ones together.
And since Leigh Ann has been so kind (and wise) to offer to drive us….which means I didn’t have to clean my car out, I did a little work in my closet this week. Trust me, it’s better. You can walk and see the floor and not feel scared when you walk in. And my outfit for tomorrow (with the felt flower attached) is ready to go.
My final thoughts on Blissdom as I make my last few ‘slayings’:
