I know confessions are usually done on Wednesdays...but I had that post about babies done and just sitting there for at least two weeks. I don't even know if this post will end up being confession-y or just straight up ramble-y and full of random phone pictures. I'm guessing the latter.
I'm starting off this post sitting on the couch in my comfy clothes, sequined leopard print slippers, and drinking orange juice out of my (super cute!) stemless polka dot Kate Spade wine glass.
To my left is our mantle, which is decorated totally randomly. I was looking at it and asked Michael his opinion. I think the left side with the blues and browns looks put together and like something that a normal person might actually do. And then the right side is a gold pumpkin, a bright Mexican looking owl pitcher, a candle, and a Green Bay Packers gnome. Michael said, "I like it. It's a bunch of random stuff. It's very us." Aside from looking like I just grabbed a bunch of random stuff and put it on our mantle, it looks like we're nice and unpacked and settled in.
But then I look to my right...
This looked at least five times worse when I went to work yesterday morning. Michael did a ton of unpacking and putting away while I was at work, so that was good.
Back in the bedroom, everything is super neat and tidy. I mean just look at my closet with everything hanging up!
Other fun things that are happening include Michael and I sharing a toothbrush because we left our toothbrushes at my parents' house and only had one spare. And yes I realize toothbrushes are like $2 (right? I don't even know) but I never remember to buy things.
I also left my moisturizer at my parents' house. So one day I used Aveeno body lotion on my face. Let me tell you, it didn't feel very great. The next day I used this Banana Boat moisturizing sunscreen I have that is tropical scented...and smelling that stuff all day drove me bananas (get it, Banana Boat?!). I don't want to buy another moisturizer because mine is spendy and I only replace it when I need to. I could buy a cheaper one in the meantime, but again...the remembering is not my strong suit.
Guess what else this genius did. I got to work at my first day in the Portland office. There were two IT guys there (our IT department is all in Seattle so that was a shock to see Seattle people there). They were updating everyone's computers to Windows 10. Anyway, I went into my office, looked around, and there was no computer! Like, what? There were two monitors and a docking station for my laptop. I asked one of the IT guys where the computer was...and he told me my laptop is the computer. I just need to plug it into the docking station. So anyway, I had to call Michael, who had just left a few minutes before from dropping me off, and have him bring me my laptop.
But the good news is I made a delicious sweet potato sausage hash for dinner last night. I am obsessed with sweet potatoes but never buy them because potatoes take approximately six hours to cook. Dinner did take a long time but it was sooo worth it.
I've also finally started burning my pumpkin cheesecake candle from Bath and Body Works and it's wonderful. And I love the Blazers, which you can kind of see in the background. But I loved them pre-move too.
I also love this personalized cookie jar that we got as a wedding gift! We didn't have a cookie jar before, so it's good, but Michael can't eat gluten, and even if we bought gluten free cookies he isn't that into sweets...so guess who is going to eat ninety percent of any cookies that go in there? (More like 100% because I'll probably buy cookies with gluten anyway.)
Lastly, I am dying for some over-the-knee boots. The Dolce Vita pair that every single fashion blogger in the world has posted about lately because they're on sale don't come in my size...so that feels like a slap in the face. BUT I found the Sole Society ones below and now I'm struggling with which color I would want! I'm pretty drawn to the cognac (because I pretty much always am) but I'm not sure.
I'm linking up with Amanda for Thinking Out Loud Thursday! Also, I hope to be caught up with blog reading soon! I've had to skip some posts, skim some, and read some without commenting. But I'm trying to catch up!
