Lazy Day Thursday+Thrift Store Treasures

Good morning ya’ll. What are you up to today? To all who are working today I hope you will have a successfull and wonderful day at work. As of today, my boys are still out of school. They will be back on the 7th of January which is this coming Monday. Right now, we can’t really do much outdoors because of the rain. It has been raining since last Tuesday. It’s quite nasty outside.

Today, we’re just gonna be on our pajamas all day. Read books. Helping my eldest son study for his upcoming spelling bee contest on January 16th. Well, you know that doesn’t come really easy. I know other moms know that there will be tantrums, stubbornness and the selective hearing moment when teaching your kid. In moment like this, all I need is PATIENCE….PATIENCE…PATIENCE.

However, when that part is done, it will be time to light some candles and just relax. Who doesn’t want to relax? I need it so bad! I have been working…working…working. So many times I feel so guilty of having limited time with my little ones. Last month, I resigned my job not because I don’t wanna work anymore. I had sever back pain throughout those years while working that nobody would understand the pain I had and the struggle of striving to look painless, to smile, to walk like I didn’t feel any pain. It’s a challenge doing that on a daily basis. Right now, going to the chiropractor helps me feeling better. I’m almost there. I’m grateful! For a long time, I don’t even know how it feels like when you don’t have severe pain.

Anyway, I probably blah..blah..blah..too much. Before I’ll end up today’s blog, I wanna share something with you quick. One thing I really love to do is going to a thrift store. Who else like to go to a thrift store? Can’t be just me, lol. The stuff I have in these images below are from a thrift store. The candle holders were $1.50. The books were $0.25 each. They’re not just books for decorations or photography props, but for me I love these books. Max Lucado is my favorite author. I also love reading inspirational books. The transparent glass is from Dollar Tree. The dog is not from the thrift store or dollar tree hahaha just kidding. That’s our sweet dog Daisy. She is so adorable!

I hope that you will have a beautiful day and until next time!

Love,

Ester

Coat Racks:Hobby Lobby Finds

Having two little boys, I find myself struggling to keep them from throwing their coats everywhere. Especially this winter season. Of course, the rule is to have them hang their coats right on their closet door knobs when they’re not using or done using their coats. But, hello? Does it work? The answer is No! I always get disappointed to see their coats on the floor. In my mind, there’s gotta be a solution for this.

On new year’s day, I went to my favorite store Hobby Lobby to look for greats deals. I’m talking about the markdowns after Christmas. Yes, a lot of markdowns and I was hyped up with the 75% – 80% off deals. Oh, I know a lot of moms out there can relate with my excitement. Fortunately, I also found a wooden coat rack. Lucky me to be able to get the three racks left. I couldn’t wait to have them installed in my boys room and in our bedroom as well. I would say it works!

I love the color of it and it goes well with the wall color. It’s perfect! Plus, my boys liked it. Until next time and have a good night!
