January Days (ordinary life and a few favorite things!)

Hello Friends,

Happy January!  I hope the first two weeks of the year have treated you well.  Are you off to a good start?  I feel like a bit of a slow poke these days because we haven't been doing much of anything. I must admit that I am loving it.  I have big intentions of cleaning my house and doing all sorts of projects around here, but I haven't gotten my mojo yet...I'm almost there  : ) 

I always enjoy the quiet of January after the busy holiday season.  I feel like I'm still recovering from it.  Still catching up on all the sleep I didn't get in December.  January is nap month. 
Whose with me? 

It's been cold here, but thankfully we haven't gotten any snow yet. 

Just a little frost, but mostly rain.  

Christmas is all packed away but some things still remain..... : ) 

I'm not ready to say goodbye just yet....

This one is my favorite... <3

Boots & everyday. 

I was in Whole Foods yesterday and decided to buy myself flowers.  Just because.  

Currently in my bathroom :  

I'm loving the Thayers Rose Petal face mist.  I spray it on my clean face after I get out of the shower
(before moisturizer and makeup).  It helps tighten and tone skin and feels so nice!  Plus it doesn't have any alcohol in it, so it isn't drying. I love it! 

And speaking of showers.....I can't stop with the Bath & Body Works. 

Have you tried this shower gel?

Oh dear, you will never want to get out of the shower!  : )  

 I am not ready to say goodbye to my holiday (sparkly) eyeshadow either. 

In fact, I don't think I will! The colors are so pretty. 

We've been doing easy dinners the past few weeks. 

I've been obsessed with omelets...mainly because I just figured out how to make them without turning them into scrambled eggs! 


Easy after school/work snacks of crackers and cheese. YUM 

Currently on my nightstand.  

What's on yours? 

This plant is still flourishing.  I gave it a friend for the winter :) 

Oatmeal with a splash of maple syrup is my favorite for breakfast these days. 

Daybreak ~

I'll take this over snow.  Not as pretty but easier to drive in.  #truth

And that's how my January is going so far.  Ordinary days are the best days, don't you think? 

I'm slowly coming out of my cocoon and getting myself back into a routine.  I'm starting a fun craft project this weekend that I will share with you soon.  One of my (many) intentions for the new year is to get crafty and I have some fun DIY's planned that I can't wait to show you! 

Happy Thursday, my friends!  I hope you all have a great day! xo 


  1. Happy January, sweet friend!
    Your days are just how they should be.
    Naps especially. : )

  2. I'm with you on all of that!! Winter doldrums is okay with me, too!! I haven't packed away Christmas yet; we decided to keep the snowmen and elves around to keep us company for awhile, and they love the twinkle lights! I have been getting all my tax stuff ready. We have to submit it to the CPA mid Feb. and I'm ahead of schedule on that. I'm glad to hear other people are poking around, too! I imagine more of us do that than we know!! Happy January!! Jane xo

  3. Your blog always makes me feel sooo warm and cozy!!! I need to try that toner. It sounds great! Also, cheese is crackers is my favorite snack EVER. :)
