Happy February! Isn’t that crazy!? I feel like I JUST got Christmas put away around here. You too? Are the months flying by faster than usual or am I the only one feeling that way? January is usually a chill month, but this month was packed and I honestly can’t believe it’s over already! I’m crossing my fingers that February brings some down time with it. :) Since we’ve had a lot going on lately I’m behind on my organizing challenge and still working on my kitchen. I’m going to try to finish up my kitchen this week and start organizing closets, but don’t stress at all if you’re in my boat and still have a lot to check off your to-do list! One drawer and cupboard at a time. Really this challenge is meant to work for you so if you need to take an extra week do it! Or move on and then go back to things you missed after. I never make it through the challenge with everything finished on my list, but I do make a lot of progress and that’s what counts! More organizing coming soon. :)
Today is a quick post! I’m sharing my January Amazon buys (fun things this month!). I also rounded up some gift ideas for friends, sisters, mothers.. anyone really! Valentine’s Day is such a fun time to celebrate love for everyone in your life! A perfect day to send someone a little gift and note and let them know you care. One of these years I’m going to throw a Galentine’s Day party and have friends over. I’ve always wanted to do that! This year we are booked with kids’ activities but one of these years it’s going to happen. Until then.. cute little Galentine’s Day gifts will have to do. :)
Ok.. Amazon buys this month! First up is a clamp to lock the power button on my Dyson vacuum cleaner! Genius! I picked up more olive branches because my obsession is real. I needed more of my favorite quartz/stone cleaner for my kitchen counters. Ordered the best measuring spoons! They are magnetic and all stick together unit you need to use one! Then I threw in some new measuring cups too because we were due. :) I bought more drawer organizers for my master closet (a work in progress.. still!), a cute make-up brush holder for the bathroom, a new favorite home decor book (Down to Earth is so good! And bonus.. it looks beautiful on your coffee table.) Ad needed some new black tanks for the play she was in so I ordered a set of 4 so we could share. These tanks are so cute and great for layering or to just wear in the summer when it’s warm. My new little handheld vacuum is PERFECT for drawers! It’s small but mighty and has an attachment too.. I’ll share a pic soon! Then just more pink hangers for Ad’s room and a chopper for our cheese quesadillas! Everything is pictured below. All good things we’ve been loving!
Enjoy your week! I’ll be back soon. :)

I’ve had those measuring spoons for awhile and I love them!! And and Kenny will really enjoy them. ;) And I have to tell you I have a stainless steel scraper/chopper like that and I LOVE it. I use my pizza cutter for quesadillas, which is easier for me (I just cut them like a little pizza) but I have found so many things I use my scraper for, it’s awesome. My favorite thing is that I can cut a pan of brownies, dessert bars, whatever and cut them in beautiful straight, crisp lines!
Oh I didn’t even think about using that for brownies and desserts! So smart Josie! And yes.. Kenny is digging the measuring spoons. Ha. ;) He bought a bread maker for Christmas and has been going a little crazy with it. I’m exercising and then eating lots of bread.. not so sure any progress is being made around here. Miss you! xo
You may have saved my life ;)
I vacuum so much that I have calluses on my finger from holding the power button. Today I see your post and this miracle item that will save my hands! I appreciate you so much. I bought it before I even finished reading the post. Thank you for sharing all your favorite things and for your blog which brings me joy every day.
Oh my word Jen.. I feel the same about holding that button down vacuuming and was thrilled when I landed on that little miracle item too. GENIUS! The only thing that makes me even more happy is that it’s going to help you too! You are so kind and your comment brought an instant smile to my face. What a thoughtful thing to say.. thank you! I’m so lucky to have kind people like you reading. :) Enjoy your weekend! xo
