Crushing On & Life

property of - tarenley cottage

Well here we are at what seems to be the longest month of the year! This is what I've been...


With everyone discussing their new planners, I decided to throw my two cents worth in. I bought this planner HERE (no affiliation) during the summer and I love it! It has 95% of everything I need, its cheaper than the popular one, & it's 18 months. Plus I love the colors.

Don't you just love the colors and designs?
I do, they make me smile!
  • Loving these smoothies HERE - HERE (the lime in this one is so strong that I have to remove the lime pieces or they upset my stomach) - HERE
  • Bought these heart earrings HERE - love, love, love them! They are so pretty and very comfortable to wear
  • We have extremely hard water here, which dries out my already dry hands, so I bought these gloves HERE - I have the large and they're fit is good + the little ruffle on the top is so cute!
  • I also love they're soap HERE in peppermint- it's so refreshing!
  • Shared this article with  DH HERE

  • About these design trends HERE
  • Or these HERE
  • Loving two of these paint colors HERE 


So, how many of you made resolutions in January? I stopped making resolutions many years ago, but for the past couple of years I've used the month of January to set weekly and/or monthly goals and to plan out home projects. None of the plans are set in stone, because life happens! But I still like to have a detailed list of what needs to be worked on.

Here is a look at my partial list:
  • Guest bathroom - paint tile around tub, repaint walls, repaint cabinet, frost window
  • Bedroom #3 ( grandsons room) - have new carpet laid, repaint walls, finish painting diy closet organizer, repaint all doors and trim
  • Bedroom #2 (guest/office) - have new carpet laid, paint walls, paint doors and trim, start and finish DIY closet organizer
  • Master bedroom - touch up paint, have new carpet laid, put finishing details on DIY closet organizer, repaint doors and trim.
  • Living room, dining room, foyer - lay new flooring, add board and batten  2 Fourier and dining  room, paint walls, doors and trim, change front door
  • Kitchen - remove all flooring and all cabinets, lay new flooring, bring in new cabinets, paint walls, doors, & trim, install new garage door and back exterior door
  • Sand buffet down then paint. 
  • Finish my grandsons Afghan (it was supposed to be done by Christmas....BUT....🤷‍♀️)
This is a very small version, but you get the general idea.

Well, there was my month! How was yours?

Thank you for stopping by.
Enjoy your day,
