SO WHAT! Wednesday

This week I'm saying SO WHAT if...

  • I'm on a cleaning frenzy.  I've washed my walls, wiped all the baseboards, and cleaned the bathrooms, steam mopped the floors- on top of the normal stuff {dusting, vacuuming, dishes, laundry}.  If I didn't know any better I'd say I was nesting. Don't worry, that's not it ;-).
  • I'm a little bit nervous about sticking to our four gifts per kid plan- not gonna lie.  
  • I've closed down my Beachbody FB page.  I am trying to simplify my life and that was just adding way more stress than it was worth.
  • I let my kids make a mess sometimes if it buys me 5 seconds of peace.
  • We're skipping our family gift exchange/name draw to adopt a family instead.  I'm really excited about it.
  • I was on a wild goose chase for some coordinating Christmas PJs for the kids.  I don't know why it was so hard but I finally found this set from Target and I'm in love.  I love old fashion stuff like this. 
  • As much as I know I'll regret saying this in a few weeks, I'm excited for Elf on the Shelf to start again.
  • I'm kind of, sort of thinking about growing my hair out {even though I swore I would keep my short hair FOREVER}.
  • I am unsubscribing from all retail emails that come through.  I'm trying to focus on need vs want and those "sales" just make me want to shop {for things I don't need} so they have to go.
  • I hate that Kendall likes Spongebob Squarepants.  Hate it.
  • I am so excited to learn how to crochet!  I have never been crafty or had a real hobby so when a lady from my bible study group offered to teach us how to make an infinity scarf I nearly jumped for joy!  #oldladystatus
  • I can't wait for next weeks Sister Wives Tell All.  Is Mary going to leave the family?!

What are you saying SO WHAT to this week?


  1. Four gift rule is so easy! And it really makes things so much less complicated. I can't stand spongebob and won't let the kids watch it. I feel for you lol

    1. I definitely try to direct her to more appropriate shows! I mean pretty much ANYTHING is better than Spongebob! Right!? Despise it! And I've heard a lot of adults like it but NO!

  2. we do the 4 gift per kid thing, its not too bad. we do something they want, need, read & wear. when it comes to the read i always end up buying a few books because who wants to get just 1 book. so are you not doing BB anymore? didn't know you could shut down the page. oh, and i despise spongebob too. thankfully we don't have satellite so he is no longer watched in our house.

  3. Oh I am still doing BB!! I just didn't feel the need to keep a separate FB page for it! But I agree, I will for sure end up buying more than one book, you can never have too many books! We actually just went to the library last night and came home with like 18 books I think! YIKES! I hope I remember to return them all!

  4. I've gone as far as deleting all retail apps or anything that could temp me into shopping from off my phone. Removing my email from store lists has helped a ton too!
