• At My House Survey

    December 19, 2014

    Hello, hello!

    While waiting for a doctor’s appointment the other day, I picked up an issue of Good Housekeeping to read and stumbled upon a Q&A with Jada Pickett Smith. I loved the questions that were asked and thought they’d make a fun blog survey, so here are my responses. Feel free to play along in the comment section!

    Household chore I actually enjoy: Laundry. I weirdly love it. Although, actually putting it away is often something I put off for days and days. I swear there are always piles of folded laundry all over our house! Haha!

    Biggest house disaster: Our dining room table. It’s at the center of our house, so all sorts of random stuff ends up there. Here are some things on it right now as I write this post: My bag, an unpaid electric bill, a dirty protein shaker, a water bottle, a receipt from Dunkin Donuts, instructions for a digital temple thermometer, a pile of cards from Quinn’s baptism that need thank you cards, a scarf, a Sharpie marker, a tape measure, our 24 Days of Togetherness calendar, one of my half-finished To Do lists, and a framed photo of Quinn that we’re giving to my in-laws later today.

    Before company arrives, I hide: The pug fur. Well, I suppose I just vacuum it away. But, if we’re having people over, the couch most definitely gets vacuumed!

    Most recent music download: Umm… It’s been awhile since I’ve downloaded music. I’m actually more of a fan of Pandora and Songza person. I’ve had “Today’s Pop Christmas” (on Songza) playing non-stop all month!

    The last thing I bought online: These adorable Christmas pajamas for Quinn!

    I hate to shop for: Clothing. When I walk into a store, I’m overwhelmed by the options, and I never know what looks good on me. Plus, I tend to buy the same pieces over and over again (hello, how many black tank tops does one person need?!), so my wardrobe wasn’t very exciting. Annnndd this is why I love Stitch Fix so much!

    Favorite family ritual: Saturday morning workouts + iced coffee + second breakfast + a trip to the dog park. [click to continue…]
