Mornings Like This: Coffee. Lots of coffee.

April 29, 2014

Oh good morning, Cleo. What can I get you for breakfast today?
It’s been rainy & kind of gloomy the past few days (note: the rain only started yesterday but it feels like forever already) and the weatherman (Siri) says it will be like this for the rest of the week. Well shoot. I think the only good thing about the rain right now (besides that it feeds the flowers I love so much) is that it totally inspires me to write, as well as clean – so yes this is a very good thing. Aside from spring cleaning, this week will be for (hopefully) quite a bit of writing, lots of coffee, attempting to keep Cleo entertained as she thinks that’s my full time job and main responsibility, and I’m thinking about a new DIY craft to share with you guys. Stay tuned. For now, I leave you with a few more random thoughts, in list form, because that’s just how I roll. 

  • We are acquiring a (free!) piece of furniture this week and I’m pretty much rethinking our entire living room decorating/color scheme simply to make this baby fit in. Pictures to follow soon.
  • There are lots of pros to being married to a musician/producer but I will tell ya right now: by the time X is finished with a track, I never want to hear it ever again ever in my life never ever. Most of the time he will work in the studio but lately he’s been working out of his home office so I’ve had the privilege of listening to songs over and over and over, specific parts over and over and over again for literally HOURS. Let’s just say our nights having been ending with vodka while we lay on the floor in complete silence trying to regain some sanity. 
  • Sometimes I feel like our house would never get cleaned 100% if we didn’t have people over. (Please tell me I’m not the only one.) (No seriously, just lie and tell me you agree.)

  • I can't even begin to tell you how much I agree with point number 3. My house would NEVER be cleaned and scrubbed down completely without knowing that someone was about to show up.

  • Are you kidding me? That's (sadly) when I do the most and best cleaning!

  • It's funny how we don't care to live in the mess, but we don't want other people to know about it. It's people like my mother that make me feel guilty for wanting to spend time with my fiancΓ© over cleaning out bathroom top to bottom every other day.

  • Your cat is adorable and I am 10005050606% (that's a real thing, right?) about the only cleaning when people come over. Someone surprised me the other day and I almost cried because I was so embarrassed at the bomb-like condition of the apartment

  • Hahahaha… with you on the cleaning! I officially started my spring cleaning today and numero uno on the list was our bedroom. Let's just say we've lived here for 3 years and I just cleaned the floorboards for the first time. Whoops.

  • Lol, my bf does video editing and when he puts the music into the video, oh man. over and over and over. I know how you feel! Also, YES, I'm with you on the house not being 100% clean. Why is it so hard?!? lol!

    • Oh my gosh YES you totally know what I'm going through then! haha!! By the end of it he's like, "Sounds good, doesn't it?!" and I'm just thinking, "So it's over, right? You're done??"

      (Either you all are really good liars or I'm truly not the only one who only cleans when company comes over, ha! phew!)

  • Weatherman siri always tell me how I should dress.

  • Just wanted to let you know I nominated you for a Liebster Award :). http://jeansandatiara.blogspot.com/2014/04/liebster-award.html

  • I do my best and fastest cleaning when I know someone is coming too. Nothing like a panic clean to get your heart going!

    • Panic clean – ha! Yes, tension is usually quite high during this time. X typically just stays out of my way πŸ˜‰

  • Yes! Jordan and I pretty much look for company when the house is getting messy πŸ˜‰

  • Haha, that last one!!! That was me today! Cleaning my house like a mad woman after a very busy few days. And I kinda liked that I was getting company cause it gave me the push to get my house clean (well, most of it, honestly my room and bathroom that I knew wouldn't get viewed didn't get any special treatment today).
