Five on Friday

My hubby is off from work the entire month of December! He's getting paid to stay home! Crazy huh? I am so excited! He very much deserves this time off but I've got some home improvement plans for him around the house to keep him busy. 

Projects include: 
-entry table
-farmhouse table
-fireplace mantle 
-built in bookcase

Not much! lol Let's see how many of these we can complete by the end of the month! Oh and by the way I kinda just went up to him and took this photo :)

As you may have noticed I started doing sponsored posts. I've done reviews + giveaways for companies and small businesses in the past but I've never gotten paid for blogging until recently. I gotta say I am LOVING it. I just want to let you all know that I will NEVER write or share about a company I don't like. I realize not everyone likes reading sponsored posts. Honestly I don't like reading them too much myself either but I'm doing my best to keep them as genuine and true to myself as possible. If I can get paid doing something I love then why not? Right? Now I'm not saying every single post from now on will be a sponsored post. I still have some awesome DIY projects, recipes and overall life posts I will be posting and the sponsored posts will just mix in with those. I ONLY apply to campaigns I feel I relate too and my readers would enjoy. I just wanted to clarify that guys. I'm still me and this blog will always remain TRUE to who I am, what I like and what I'm all about. 

I put on FIVE POUNDS last week guys! I'm thinking a lot of it was water weight and bloating because I've lost 4lbs this week just by eating clean and working out twice this week. I have this on going battle with my weight. I loose weight and then I feel I can eat EVERYTHING then I put on the weight back and go on a week or two of clean eating. It's a crazy cycle I want to break already!

Speaking of weight. I've been needing to buy new jeans for a while now because I got rid of a TON of jeans when I found out I was pregnant. WHY DID I DO THAT? Anyways I've got three pair of jeans. One of which I like and the other two I HATE. I haven't bought any because I keep waiting to loose weight. It's been more than a year and I'm still the same size...

I went over to my friend Julie's house yesterday and we had a little craft party. I will be posting what we did next week and linking up to her new blog so you can all go follow her! :)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! Stay warm!

  1. I'm totally good with sponsored posts. Your blog, write what you want. You can make money while doing it? Even better.

    I need new jeans too. If you find some awesome ones be sure to do a review so I can scope them out ;)


I would LOVE to hear from you! :)
