Hi friends! Long time, no see. Sorry for my absence, I’ve been a bit busy & haven’t really spent a spare minute to gather five things. Anyway, let’s get to the five things I have for you today!
One: Closet Revamp
Part of the reason for my lack of 5 things is that I have been spending the last few weeks purging stuff from my house & donating. My closet had a big overhaul. First, I went through my clothes & got rid of stuff I don’t wear, doesn’t fit, & things I don’t think I’ll wear again. Second, I got rid of shoes, purses, jewelry, & hats. It ended up being 9 bags of stuff to donate!
Then, I turned all the hangers around backwards & color-coded everything. As I wear the item & wash it, when I hang it back up the hanger goes back correctly & to the back of that color’s section. At the end of the season, what ever is left backwards will get donated.
So, I didn’t color organize my clothes by ROY G BIV (sorry The Home Edit), but I did order it according to the Peggy Lee song “Sing a Rainbow.” The lyrics are, “Red, and yellow, and pink, and green. Purple, and orange, and blue. I can see sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow, sing a rainbow too. Listen with your eyes…”
Have y’all seen The Way I See It? It is a documentary about the White House photographer, Pete Souza, during Raegan & Obama’s administrations. This documentary was so good! I laughed. I cried. I can’t say enough good things about it. Kids can watch this too.
Three: Christmas Decor
Y’all, I’m having a daily battle with myself not to put up my Christmas decor. I did, however, buy one little Christmas tree from Target last week & I left it out among my pumpkins.
I have already decided that my tree is going up on Sunday, the 1st. I’m not going to decorate it, but I can no longer be denied pretty, twinkling lights! It’s 2020, all bets are off at this point. Am I right?
Four: New Hat
I was influenced by Carly to get this hat from J. Crew. I’m in love with it! Normally, I’m more of a baseball cap kinda girl, but I was drawn to this one. I got it at 50% off, but it is still 40% off now.
Okay, so I lied – I only have four things this week. But I will be back next week! Hold me to it! Hope you all have a safe & COVID-free Halloween. Tag me (IG @AnaologyofReality) if you put up your Christmas tree this weekend too!
