Week 48 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. Took it a bit easier this week as most of my cards are made and I needed to focus on Thanksgiving, calendar designing, and shopping. So much to do still before Christmas! #bujo #bulletjournaling #bujocommunity #bujojunkies #bujolove #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournaljunkies #bulletjournallove #handwriting #housewifelife Debating whether to keep posting bujo pages in 2017.

Happy Thanksgiving! I am #adulting today with #homemade crescent rolls. Not so adulting with my #vintage #pilgrim #trolls. (A childhood gift from my best friend, and the only Thanksgiving decor I have.) #thankful #happythanksgiving via Instagram http://ift.tt/2gl2rK0

Week 47 in my #housewife #bulletjournal. Was in full card making mode and cranked out over 40 cards this week! Still managed to fit in my regular chores and cook some awesome dinners. Busy, but a good, productive week. #bujo #bujocommunity #bujojunkies #bujolove #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournaljunkies #bulletjournallove #handwriting #housewifelife via Instagram http://ift.tt/2fpxcMY

Week 46 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. Forced myself into an easier week after a drama-filled Week 45 and before the big holiday buildup. Also celebrated 11 years of #blogging with an annual #retrospective (link in profile). #bujojunkies #bujocommunity #bujo #bujolove #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournaljunkies #bulletjournallove #handwriting #housewifelife via Instagram http://ift.tt/2g4od5A

I so rarely post food pics, but my dinner tonight earned much praise from The Man. Made half-white-half-wheat bread from scratch and chicken potato chowder. I roasted the chicken yesterday (had some for dinner), then used the bones to make stock today, and have even more leftover meat for tomorrow night. No recipe for the chowder: just winged it! #helikesithereallylikesit #chowder #chicken #potato #whitewheatbread #leftoversrock #eatyourveggies #nopeasplease #peasaregross via Instagram http://ift.tt/2fbqVW9

Happy Birthday to me! Mega haul from @simonsaysstamp and @lawnfawn. So much work to do to get 75 Christmas cards made this year, but new products are always motivating! (So are 15% off everything sales!) #simonsaysstamp #lawnfawn #crafts #makeallthethings #cardmaking #christmasiscoming #needmoretime via Instagram https://www.instagram.com/p/BMpbHqOBzsJ/

Blog Year Retrospective #11

Happy eleven years, bloggy! 2016 has been a year of ups and downs.

We began our year on a good note with The Man doing well in his job only to find out that he would be laid off in May due to downsizing. After a frantic month of worry and job hunting, he found employment at another company in the same city. I didn't have to give up my precious job as a housewife, which was probably as much of a relief to The Man as it was to me.

Week 45 in my 2016 #housewife #bulletjournal. The one problem with my template #bujo is that it doesn't show what else happened around me this week: my Dad totaled his car (he is okay, thankfully), Grandma had a heart attack (she is less okay but on the mend), and The Man chaired his big annual conference (which was hugely successful!). My "day off" was merely a blip of calm in the craziness. #bujojunkies #bujocommunity #bujolove #bulletjournaling #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournaljunkies #bulletjournallove #handwriting #housewifelife #nov3 #birthday #scorpio via Instagram http://ift.tt/2ftzdKq
