Sephora Birthday Month Gift

I love my @Sephora birthday freebies!

During my birthday month, I stopped by Sephora to pick up my free birthday present for Sephora Beauty Insiders, and I chose the @bitebeauty lip duo!

It comes with a Mini Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Chai, Mini Matte Crème Lip Crayon in Glacé, and Agave Lip Treatment Sample Duo.

I tried the lip scrub that is part of the lip treatment duo, and it left my lips feeling so soft. I can’t wait to try the rest of the stuff!

What birthday gift did you pick up this year?

Moving Tip – Declutter

When I talk to my real estate clients about selling or buying a home, one of the first things I tell them is to start decluttering and start packing.  I’m taking my own advice and starting to declutter some plastic bins we have in the garage. 20 years of stuff is a lot to go through but thankfully we have some time to prepare.

IMG_0110Yes, those are Power Ranger costume patterns behind me.

I kept name badges from when I worked at Sears.

I have an old high school phone directory.

I also have a vintage 110 Kodak camera.

For this next one, in my defense, I am a mom and I think most moms feel obligated to keep certain things.  One of those things is report cards.  I kept this particular one for over 20 years.

That’s right, it’s empty.  I kept the report card sleeve for 20 years and it’s empty.  When I asked my girlies if they wanted their other report cards, Kat said, “Mom.  My diploma is proof enough of my academic success.”

Point taken…haha!

What kinds of things and memories are you holding onto that you should let go?

National Donut Day

One day I want someone to look at me and say, “That’s her. She’s the one.” And not follow it with “who ate all the donuts”.

But seriously y’all, I can’t help myself!

Did you know that June 1st was the 80th anniversary of National Donut Day? It was created to honor Salvation Army members who served doughnuts to soldiers during World War 1.  It is celebrated on the first Friday of June, although I think you could celebrate how yummy donuts are any day.

If I had to choose a favorite donut of all time, it would have to be the classic glazed donut.  Which one is your favorite?

We have exciting news!!

WE ARE BUILDING A HOUSE!! 🏡

And I keep wanting to talk about our house plans, and the layout, and the colors we want to use, and….and…and….you get the idea! It’s just going to be such a fun and exciting and yes, somewhat stressful journey but I can’t wait to share all of that with y’all!

As some of you already know, this is why I rebranded and changed my IG, YouTube and blog name to Our Gray House.  Because we are building a house and it’s gray and a lot of my content going forward is going to center around that.

I hope y’all stay around for the journey!  If you have any house building tips or advice, please share it with me!
