Owning It

Today I am linking up with Christina from The New Mrs. today. Sharing all the thoughts that have been swirling around in my head this month and owning it.


**************************************************

I currently loathe cooking. When I come home from work in the evenings the last thing I want to do is cook. Thankfully, I have a husband that does not complain about eating sandwiches or my nachos for dinner. I know I need to get my butt in gear and get back into meal planning to save my waistline and my wallet.
**************************************************
I am at a loss on where to start decorating our new house. There is a ton of little projects that I have in mind to make our new house a home. However, I have no idea where to start. We currently have 3 completely empty rooms that desperately need furniture. Plus lots of new paint on the walls and ceilings. Then there is the outdoors which I have no idea how to improve. At least I have a pinterest board full of ideas right?



**************************************************
I am on the search for the comfiest underwear. I discovered that Victorias Secret discontinued my favorite style so I am on a look for an even better alternative. Tried Hanky Panky and was not impressed. I have spent way too much time on the internet reading reviews. More than I care to admit. I spent less time deciding on my car. Please help a girl out and share your favorites! 

Anyone else struggle with cooking more in the summer? Also, any home decoration tips or favorite websites would be amazing!

  1. UGH! I hate when stores discontinue lines, it just makes me mad. I've heard great things about HP but if you don't like it, then moving on, haha. I do enjoy the body series by Victoria secret. Super comy.

  2. I lol'ed when you said you'd spent more time reading reviews on the undies than on a car hahah. I hope you find the perfect undie for you soon!
    My advice on the room stuff, just pick a room, and fully focus on it. Figure out colors, patterns, ideas and then go on the hunt for those pieces to pull it all together. It's hard to do them all at once because it's hard to focus on them all. One at a time :)

  3. It's hard for me to enjoy cooking as much in the summer, too, just because I don't want to "heat up the kitchen." But I do enjoy cooking and baking and I usually do more in the summer and fall. Have you thought about using a crockpot? That's usually a great alternative to the oven!

    1. I meant I usually do more cooking in the fall and winter.

  5. We have two empty rooms that I'm putting off dealing with at the moment! I think that will be a good winter project :) As for the cooking, crockpot meals are a lifesaver for us! Also, I wear Soma underwear & love them!! They are so soft and good quality!

  6. Good luck with your decorating...that sounds like a fantasy to me...my little apartment is pretty much as decked out as I can get it...except my bedroom could use some sprucing up!

  7. Totally agree with cooking... ugh! My husband cooks almost all our meals thank goodness. So over the idea of cooking after a long day, I'd be happy with pb&j's every night. My husband, not so much!

  8. Ugh, cooking is like a punishment to me!

  9. In the summer time I never feel like hot meals or cooking with too much effort - but Jesse is so lame when it comes to dinner and won't accept anything other than "dinner foods" so I always end up cooking anyway haha. I would be so much happier with a sandwich or snack plate!

  10. I hate it when stores stop selling your favorite thing! VS stopped carrying my favorite bra, and I have yet to find one like it. But, I have come to love Aerie for undies!

  11. If it was just me, I would totally eat nachos all day e'ery day! We try to cook like two big meals a week and then eat leftovers for the rest of the week. That definitely helps with not wanting to cook!
