inspiration : thursday thoughtfuls

Hi y'all! Happy Thursday!

As some of you know, I listed some pretty adorable Valentine's Day garlands in my shop this week. After that, and seeing a few other Valentine's Day themed blog posts, I decided yesterday to get out my Valentine's Day decor. Then I was hit with a stunning reality. I only have two pieces of Valentine's Day decor. That's it. Two. What???

Which brought me to a couple of realizations: 1) I'll be looking for some Valentine's Day themed DIYs to try out soon and 2) I'll be hitting up the after Valentine's Day sales at Hobby Lobby and such. Definitely. 

But, those will come during a later post. 

It feels like forever since I've done a thursday thoughtfuls post. It's only been two weeks, but it feels like longer to me. I'm glad it's back... I love doing this post. 

So true. I think I do a pretty good job at this. But there's always room for improvement right?

Yes. I love this. Maybe it's because I didn't come from a wealthy family. Maybe it's because I was mostly raised by my grandparents who instilled this value into me. But I feel like 97% of the time, I appreciate what I have instead of wanting more/new/whatever things. It's something I hope to pass on to my children and yes, even (hopefully) instill in some adults around me as well. This is good advice and you'll be happier in life if you live life like this. 

Love this. 

Haha... this makes me laugh. Maybe this is why I love sweater season so much. However, it's during sweater season that you work on what you'll look like during non-sweater season. So I better keep to the plan of dieting and exercising. ;) 

Yes! Some people really need to take this to heart. 

See? Isn't it good to have thursday thoughtfuls back? ;) 

And now, it's off to get a glass of water. Seriously, I'm planning on drinking at least FOUR glasses of water today. My skin is crazy dry and I have a feeling part of it has to do with my lack of water consumption. Which is probably why in the ER the other morning they almost hooked me up to an IV for dehydration. So if you're wondering where I am today, I'll either be filling up a water bottle, drinking said water, or in the bathroom. ;) haha!



  1. I think that sweater season quote was talking about me!

  2. You gave me a good nudge..........

  3. Great thoughtfuls, as always! I need to make more valentine decor, too. It just makes winter a little brighter!
