~A Peek Into Our Week~

In our little kitchen, I've been burning Root Beer Float by Yankee Candle.  It smells so yummy!

I finally ordered the bread box I had been wanting from Amazon.  I actually have two bread boxes, but my other one I use for my coffee.
As always, I've been making home made food.  Here are some home made hashbrowns to go with Steven's Sunday breakfast.

Here is Justin one evening doing his homework.  He is such a smart little fella.  He got into the spelling bee, so I am excited to go watch him.
Here is Lauren helping Megan with her math.  They both tested into advanced math class in the 7th grade.  
I've been enjoying a bit of relaxation in my room this week.  I like to put on a winter video on my TV and play my new CD.
This is my new CD.  I love it.  It is music from the 1940's.  I got the idea for it from grandma Donna's blog.  
This last weekend, Steven and I went to our usual place to eat lunch.  We pretty much have a weekly date there.  Once in a while we try something new, but for the most part we stick with Quadoba's.
I took Justin out for his favorite meal this last weekend too.  He seems to never get tired of Fazzoli's.
I have been working on decorating my desk area.  I wanted to make it look a bit more cozy.  I found this website called http://wallpaperseveryday.com/ that has quite a few cute and free screensavers.   I really like the roses.     I've been just working on different drawers in our house this last week.  I organized our tool drawer, and of course I worked on my desk drawers.  It feels good little by little to let things go, and then organize the things you really love or need.  I have been doing a lot of reading and of course watching YouTube videos to help me come up with ideas for organizing our little home, or simply to get inspired to declutter and clean.  Lauren has been sick the past couple of days, but seems to be feeling better today.  We all just have kept passing sickness back and forth to each other.  So far Steven has still not gotten sick, I hope and pray he doesn't.  He is busy as always with his job and the apartments.   Next month we will be taking a trip down to Lawrence to visit family and friends.  I'm so excited as I did not get to go down at Christmas.  I miss them all so much.  I think I will have a cup of coffee.  I hope you all have a nice week.  Hugs.  Juli


  1. Hello Juli...
    Love your new breadbox!
    Always nice to treat yourself once in awhile, isn't it?
    I hope your family gets rid of the sickness soon...
    I too am working on organizing.
    It is hard for me, but I am learning to focus on one thing at a time!
    Usually I try to do the whole house at one time, and get overwhelmed!!!
    Love your cozy home, my friend.
    Have a cozy winter week. : )

  2. Oh Juli, I so enjoyed a peek into your week. I just love your sweet little kitchen. It is so charming and cosy. I can almost see you puttering in there as you plan and prepare for your sweet family. I hope that you all get well very soon. I hope that you have a warm and cosy day. Hugs ♥ Teri
