{True Colors Personality Test} – Going for the Gold and Getting Organized

October 29, 2014

Last Saturday I attended a leadership class, during which we took  the True Colors Personality Assessment. The test requires you to look at a cluster of words found in 5 rows and 4 columns and circle the grouping that is most like you. I was pretty surprised when I got to the end and found that overwhelmingly I was an orange and scored not one single point in the color that has the organizational characteristics that I’ve been dying to achieve.

We in here cutting up. They are about to kick us out of here

I feel like I’ve been so disconnected from this space for the past two weeks.

October 19, 2014

The temperatures around here have been dipping kind of low lately in the mornings, and just like I for the most part only use my crock pot in the fall and winter, I only eat oatmeal during the colder months. My Saturday schedule called for an early start time without the children. Seeing that I still had a ton of apples left over from the orchard that I needed to do something with, it only made sense to whip up some crock pot apple oatmeal so that they could have breakfast when they woke up.

{Wayfair Homemaker} Learning to Love my Living Room Furniture

I was compensated by Wayfair for this post. All opinions are mine

I know all about that caveat, and have had to do more than my fair share of compromising to make things work especially when it comes to slowly bringing this house together.
