The week is almost over, can I get a woot woot?! I think Mother Nature wanted to be fair and sent us a winter storm in the Midwest too. Although compared to our East coast friends, winter storms here are no big deal. Some of us even kind of loved it! ❄️ ❄️ ❄️
At our place, we got about 11 inches of that perfectly powdery fluffy stuff that you just want to lay in. So naturally being the nerds that we are, we strapped on our snow shoes and baby, and went for a snow shoe walk in the park. Super fun and hard I might add. I don’t know if it was the almost the 20 lbs. baby or the fact that I had worked out in the morning, but it was exhausting!
Update on the Capsule Wardrobe: I am still working on going thru all my clothes and making my love it, donate it, maybe and NO piles. So far between the hubs and I, we are up to 6 bins of donate!!!! Although let me clarify that the hubs had maybe 2 boxes and I had the rest.
How in the world did I accumulate so many clothes and crap over the years?! Seriously! I found stuff from high school or clothes I stole from my sis years ago (sorry Sis) or down right terrible pieces. It ranged the gamut from scandalous to old lady to awful trends to even things with tags on them. TERRIBLE! So in conclusion, it is going to take me a little longer to wrap up this Capsule Wardrobe and share it with you guys.
In addition to our closet clean up, we are tackling our basement aka storage space of DOOM! It’s basically where we store everything we do not use. Needless to say, this week has been nuts yet absolutely refreshing at the same time. There is no greater feeling than getting rid of stuff that we no longer need. It is slowly coming together and we are starting to see organized clean spaces with only the things we truly need. Let the purging continue!
Super bowl Sunday is upon us! And in case you need an easy last last minute appetizers idea for parties, try this Buffalo Chicken Dip (with homemade shredded chicken or rotisserie store-bought). We’ve made this a ton and people love it! I have my eye on this Skillet White Bean Chili Dip for Sunday! Not going to lie, I am so beyond excited to see Coldplay perform! Oh and to see the commercials… and football too. Priorities people 🙌
Wishing you a happy winter foodball weekend!
