One millennial’s attempt to question authority, remain (happily) married, be pennywise and organized, and prep for the future.

Week 18 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletbinder. What a busy, crazy, good week! My sister, @craftytacogeek, was home for a week, and we had lots of fun crafting, shopping, and eating too much good food. Our mid-week trip to the #oregoncoast was a wonderful treat! While I didn't have much time for my own pursuits, I also didn't

Week 17 in my #housewife #bulletbinder. Had a calm, quiet week that included plenty of thriving with some #bingewatching and creating. These are my favorite kind of weeks! #feather images from #freepik. #darlingyouareaworkofart #bulletjournal #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournaljunkies #bulletjournallove

What kinds of things do housewives do? Sometimes we stain fences. Today, I stained this gate (because I sort of blasted the old stain off with the pressure washer). With that done, hubby gets to come home after work and relax! #lessonlearned #fence #gate #stain #homerepair #housewife #housewifelife #goodwifey #hessospoiled

My lunches for the week are ready to go! #saladinajar I like simple salad bases with #romainelettuce, #babyspinach, and #carrots. Used my #foodsaver jar sealer to #vacuumseal the #salads in my #handmedown #masonjars. Topping these with nuts and seeds, baby shrimp, salmon, or chicken, and a little bit of whatever dressing I

Week 16 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletbinder. Finished my pillow project, spent time with family and friends, and generally had an easy, quiet week.

Week 15 in my #housewife #bulletbinder. "Great things take time" was such an important #mantra this week as I struggled to finish a special pillow project.

Week 14 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletbinder. Happiness is a freshly cleaned house, and I strive hard to keep it that way. I am enjoying my new #bujo layout, have been productive, and still found time for me. #winning #foronce Images from #freepik. #bulletjournal #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournallove #

"I will not sew over my pins. I will not sew over my pins. I will not..." ugh! Broke my needle, bent a pin, scared myself in the process! #sewing #quilting #brokenneedle #bentpin #neednewpants via Instagram http://ift.tt/2pvtWW6

Week 13 in my #housewife #bulletbinder. Changed my template a ton this week and improved the functionality. This freedom to change things up as I want keeps me in the #bulletjournal camp, as opposed to a true planner. Perhaps not hand drawing everything in a bound journal is cheating a bit, but I did design this myself. #so

Week 12 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletbinder. "Life is happening in this moment." We made a massive change this week and cut out our diet soda and sugar habits. No fun "thriving" boxes checked in the bujo, but we are starting to #thrive in real life. We are trying new food (a _massive!_ accomplishment for

Week 11 in my #housewife #bulletbinder. Between hubby's cold and my awful sore throat this week, I did what I could. We fell off our #bibleinayear program due to neither of us being able to read aloud to each other! Trying to catch up again. #ugh.

Week 10 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletbinder. This week's quote, "Be you, bravely," is a tall order, but I am trying to be a more authentic me every day. Took a little #metime early in the week, but paid for it later. Got our #taxes done, super deep cleaned all of our towels, and did some light #springcleaning. Ima

Annie was busy this morning! She brought me three bird toys (homemade from fleece, fiberfill, and a shoelace) while I was getting ready.

Week 8 in my #housewife #bulletbinder. Had a good week aside from a dental cleaning (ugh!). Date night in #pdx was great, and I did a pretty good job with my "strives" as well. 🌟I am in love with these monster graphics from #freepik! #toocute #bulletjournal #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjourn

Week 9 in my #housewife #bulletbinder. This was an awful week. We had to give up one of our cats, so I was unmotivated to cook or do much. Sort of slogged through life for a bit. The week ended better, and we are moving forward again. Still on track with our #bibleinayear plan! #ashwednesday #catholic #bulletjournal #bullet

Date nights are super fun when they involve replacing a hard drive, reinstalling an operating system, and reconfiguring files. #nerdlove #nothowiwantedthisnighttogo #newssd #datenight #isitoveryet #nomorebsod (Old ssd was "flash" and hdd is "thunder."

If anyone had asked me yesterday morning how I felt about cat adoption, I would have told them that cat adoption is one of the best things I’ve ever done. I took my responsibility to love a cat forever seriously. I would never, ever consider getting rid of my cats. Two hours later, my husband and I found ourselves trappe

Had to say goodbye to our furbaby today. Though he was a sweet cat most of the time, Eddie has a history of random redirected aggression with people and nonrecognition aggression with his sister. He went after The Man today (drawing blood, again: see older IG posts), and we soon found ourselves trapped in a bedroom with him

I inherited my grandfather's stamp making business today. Was going through some of his old ledgers when I spotted these interesting stamp images. Through the early 1980s, Grandpa supplied @mtnhouse with their package identification stamps. Wonder if he got paid in food? Yum! #oregonfreezedry #mountainhouse #flashbackfriday

Week 6 in my #housewife #bulletbinder. Was a quiet week overall, and I got some serious paperwork done. We are still caught up on our #bibleinayear plan, and I ate a ton of fruit and veg this week. #adulting Also #bingewatched the first three seasons of #madmen.

Week 5 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletbinder. "Patch wall holes:" I mounted my computer screens to the wall with an awesome dual screen mount. The first time was in a stud that didn't quite work for my setup (a smidge too close to a wall) The second time was not in a stud... and both monitors ripped out of the drywa

Week 4 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletjournal. Well, after not being able to turn away from the newsmedia circus, I did some chores this week.

Week 3 in my #housewife #bulletjournal. "I AM the person I was meant to become."

Week 2 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletjournal. I AM #worthy of great things in life. Finally had a break after months of crazy and was able to spend time getting this #bujo set up for the year.

Happy New Year! I've overhauled my bullet journal a bit for 2017. Here are some--okay, a LOT of--helpful pictures, thoughts, notes, hints, ideas, and suggestions for those that may be interested. First, a conundrum: I call my daily task organization device a "bullet journal." However, I don't fit the perfect bu

Week 1 in my 2017 #housewife #bulletjournal. A rough start to the year with Grandma's funeral, but I am thankful that I have such an amazing family, entirely because of the kind of people my grandparents were. Template layout this year is similar to last year, just tweaked some colors, line weights, and tracker location. Wi
