My mind cannot believe there are around 20-ish days or less of school left for my children. How the heck are we already in May? Here’s what I’ve been enjoying to distract myself that time is going way too quickly for my taste.

I’ve been on a bit of a decluttering kick the last couple of months and have stayed motivated by doing a lot of reading about minimalism, decluttering, and simplifying. With about 50 pages left, I’ve enjoyed reading Stuffocation: Why We’ve Had Enough of Stuff and Need Experience More Than Ever. There are some studies cited that I want to look up, and it’s got me really moving along.
Just finished watching Big Little Lies and thoroughly enjoyed it. I read the book when it came out a few years ago and thought they did a wonderful job with bringing it to the small screen. I semi-jokingly told my husband that I thought the social interactions were just like what was going on in our town. There are rumors that there may be a season 2, but I don’t know if I want that!
So, after an incident late last year involving a trip to the dentist, I’ve given up popcorn indefinitely. But, my family loves popcorn, and after teaching my nephew how to make it on the stove, he was obsessed with it. The Easter Bunny bought him the TWOBIU Popcorn Machine and it’s been great. We almost got the more inexpensive version, but I read reviews about melting plastic. My kids give it a thumbs up and have given their cousin the title of “Best and Most Famous Popcorn Maker”. Ever.
We needed a new lamp for our game room as I gave it to our daughter to use for her desk. We needed something that would fit perfectly under the small television and give bright enough light for us to read/play board games. This LED Desk Lamp fits the bill and also gives perfect light. An added bonus is that you can put a charger there to charge your electronics/phone.
I cannot go running without having something to listen to. Because I am trying to BREATHE and not keel over, I can’t hold my phone. This one is mine, but I’m still using an iPhone 5s. For the more recent phones, you can find an affordable and similar ones.
