to do.

I love the domestic life.  Even though I live with my dad and brother, Warren, I love getting things done around the house, expecially the garden.  I am probably the least likely person to enjoy this seeing as I'm a full time student and 23 years old and this isn't even my house.  It doesn't matter to me though.  My boyfriend, Nick, owns his own home that I love organizing too.  There are so many cute things to do with your home, indoors and out, and something about that draws me in.  Im just a crafty and organized person.

Here's my to-do list for the week
  • Sweep upper and lower deck.
  • Tuesday- make pasta salad with fresh oregano and parsley from the garden (since Cleveland weather has really be generous this season!)
  • Weed front and back pathways so I can sweep those too.
  • Move patio furniture out of storage so we can start eating dinners alfresco!
  • Thursday- give my last presentation of the semester for political and social philosophy on Anarchism.
  • Keep training for my 5k (more on that in the future)
  • Wednesday- make seasoned grilled chicken and stuffed tomatoes for dinner.
  • Start growing seedlings for flowers and maybe green beans and see how it turns out (I haven't done this before so I'm really counting on my green thumb).
  • Re-pot my aloe plant into something cuter than the plastic pot it came in.
As you can see I pretty much have the outdoor on my mind exclusively. =]

package in the mail

 I love getting free things, packages in the mail, a suprises.  Enclosed in this box was all three!  Much to my pleasure I recieved this package from target (via their facebook giveaway) in the mail.  What a cute bag and gifts for free! I'm excited to use all the products and maybe fall in love with a few too!  I love to share my opinion on products so if one, or all, stand out Ill be sure to review it here.  Next time there is a giveaway of this sort I will try and share it on my blog. =]
Included in the bag (from left to right): Visibly Bright daily facial cleanser by Neutrogena, Extended Moisture daily lotion by Nivea, Color Preserve Shine conditioner by Pantene (which I could smell as soon as I opened the box.. amazing), Magic Lumi light infusing primer by L'Oreal Paris, a cute little makeup bag that will definitiely be my friend when I travel, Cleansing facial wipes by Simple, and a booklet of coupons! So cute!

I do a fair amount of traveling, nothing plane worthy or lengthy (I wish) but still I take treks to Erie and Pittsburg, PA, southern Ohio, upstate New York, Greensboro and Charlotte, NC to visit friends and family so I love travel size products and sample sizes.  I use all the samples I get and enjoy most of them a lot.
