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

Week 48 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. Took it a bit easier this week as most of my cards are made and I needed to focus on Thanksgiving, calendar designing, and shopping. So much to do still before Christmas! #bujo #bulletjournaling #bujocommunity #bujojunkies #bujolove #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournaljunkies

Happy Thanksgiving! I am #adulting today with #homemade crescent rolls. Not so adulting with my #vintage #pilgrim #trolls. (A childhood gift from my best friend, and the only Thanksgiving decor I have.) #thankful #happythanksgiving via Instagram http://ift.tt/2gl2rK0

Week 47 in my #housewife #bulletjournal. Was in full card making mode and cranked out over 40 cards this week! Still managed to fit in my regular chores and cook some awesome dinners. Busy, but a good, productive week. #bujo #bujocommunity #bujojunkies #bujolove #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournaljunkie

Week 46 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. Forced myself into an easier week after a drama-filled Week 45 and before the big holiday buildup. Also celebrated 11 years of #blogging with an annual #retrospective (link in profile). #bujojunkies #bujocommunity #bujo #bujolove #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bullet

I so rarely post food pics, but my dinner tonight earned much praise from The Man. Made half-white-half-wheat bread from scratch and chicken potato chowder. I roasted the chicken yesterday (had some for dinner), then used the bones to make stock today, and have even more leftover meat for tomorrow night. No recipe for the c

Happy Birthday to me! Mega haul from @simonsaysstamp and @lawnfawn. So much work to do to get 75 Christmas cards made this year, but new products are always motivating!

Happy eleven years, bloggy! 2016 has been a year of ups and downs. We began our year on a good note with The Man doing well in his job only to find out that he would be laid off in May due to downsizing. After a frantic month of worry and job hunting, he found employment at another company in the same city. I didn't have t

Week 45 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. The one problem with my template #bujo is that it doesn't show what else happened around me this week: my Dad totaled his car (he is okay, thankfully), Grandma had a heart attack (she is less okay but on the mend), and The Man chaired his big annual conference (which was hugely

Week 44 in my #housewife #bulletjournal. Took care of my "sister" cat this week while my parents visited my actual sister who is finally home from a deployment (thanks for serving, @craftytacogeek). Also had a busy week helping my husband with his massive year-long volunteer project. #isitoveryet? #bujo #bujojunki

Week 43 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. Took some serious me time this week and watched a ton of movies! And thoroughly enjoyed the new floors, a clean and organized house, and lots of kitty snuggles. #bujo #bujolove #bujocommunity #bujojunkies #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournaljunkies #bulletjou

Week 42 in my #housewife #bulletjournal. Lots of chores post-new floor installation, but the end of the week slowed down a bit for me to watch a few movies.

Week 41 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. New floors installed this week! So much crazy, so much to do, and so happy the carpet is gone! Now if only the heavy stuff would just hop back into place... #bujo #bujocommunity #bujojunkies #bujolove #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournaljunkies #bulletjournal

Week 40 in my #housewife #bulletjournal. Lots to do to prep for new flooring, including packing books for days. The minimalist in me was slightly disturbed by how many boxes I filled with books, but books bring us joy (as long as we don't have to carry full boxes upstairs anymore). #bujo #bujocommunity #bujolove #bujojunkie

This is it. I have finally reached #minimalist #refrigerator #perfection! Just #dietcoke and a #babyloaf of #cheddar #tillamookcheese. No need for anything else! (Refilling my fridge after cleaning. More to put in, of course. Like more cheese and Diet Coke! And milk...) #minimalism #glutenfree #cheeseisallyouneed #cleanfrid

My life this week. Not moving, just getting all new LVP flooring downstairs. Have to move the whole downstairs (except kitchen stuff) to upstairs or to garage. Those boxes are all books, and I am only a quarter done. #ihoardbooks #homelibrary #nomorecarpet #needmoreboxes #somuchdust #ihatesweating #lifeismyworkout #heavy (A

Week 39 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. Spent a week mostly dedicated to quilts, though I didn't make a single stitch. Also got to see a lot of extended family which was a treat! #bujo #bujocommunity #bujolove #bujojunkies #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournallove #bulletjournaljunkies #handwriting

Was shopping with Mom today when I happened upon this #royalalbert #teacupset on sale for less than it is worth. No scratches, cracks, dings, or chips.

Together at last! Almost 90 years after the quilt was made for my great grandfather (named in quilt), and about 80 years after he hand carved the bed himself, I have reunited two fragile pieces of family history. My sister restored the bed a few years ago, and I restored the quilt yesterday. Here's to family! (And to names

Inherited a memory quilt made for my great grandfather when he moved out to Oregon from Nebraska in 1927. Now in the process of cleaning 90 years of neglect and stale cigarettes out so I can put this quilt on the bed that same man hand-carved.

Week 37 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. Thankful for the new layout as I had a crazy busy week leading up to a weekend getaway.

I've been using a bullet journal for nearly two years now, and I've learned a few things that others might benefit from, so I'm pouring my entire brain out here. This is going to be long. GETTING STARTED: What is a bullet journal? It's a planner and a journal and a system of organizing thoughts created a few years ago b

Week 36 in my #housewife #bulletjournal. A whole new layout! A menu! Habit trackers! So much new! Here's to hoping this works--and that bullet journalers don't kick me out of the bujo club for printing my template instead of hand drawing it. :/ #tryingsomethingnew #bujo #bujocommunity #bujojunkies #bujolove #bulletjournalin
