The Monthly Herd--May 2017-- I'm a Grandma, Yall!!


I know! So. Yes, I'm a grandmom now! Turns out the #HerdMouse Livvy? Total tart! I went to clean her tank this week and....found squiggly little babies. Ack! They're so stinking cute, though! And tiny! One has ventured out of their igloo so far.

In other news. Hrm. I got a lot done around the house for mission #DontLiveInHell and on the blog (all of the graphic updates are almost done!), planned a couple events, did some USO-ing. and a lovely Mother's Day brunch with Ro from In the Know with Ro and took an art history class at our museum. It was a pretty good month both on the home and blog front :)

Full list of goals: HERE Meh. I'm too tired to update. But I *think* stuffs been getting done. lol
My motto for the year is Less Is More.

I tackled my email in May! I've been in label hell. I had SO many labels to sort it was useless. Like 100+ of them. So I spent a week breaking that down into like 5 labels (blog, work, rescue, orders, other). And, yall, it's AMAZING. So much less stress and way easier for me to keep organized and sorted.

I've been getting rid of things, replacing others. I've lost count how many things I've purged but it's getting to be a hefty number. Yay! My kitchen got a lot this month. I took EVERYTHING out of it and put it on the deck then only brought back in things that fit on the shelves and I use. It looks so much better!





Just graphics I think. Almost all are updated to my new fonts/themes.
And my blog menu has been updated.
