Friday Loves = Nordstrom + Organizing "Stuff"!

Hello there!   I 'm delighted to link up today with The Blended Blog for Friday Loves 
and Anna Nuttall's Bloggers Link-Up!





Hello Nordstrom Sale!

I'm jumping on the Nordstrom Annual Sale bandwagon!  I bought four items!  Of course, they're all in transit so I can't tell you if they fit or if I even like them in real life!




Click here to check out these pants and here for this adorable hat!


 I've wanted a sweater blazer for a long time, and I'm hoping this one fits well!  Also, I do love Kate Spade and plaid so I have high hopes for this scarf!


 Hello Organizing!

 At the annual fundraiser for my local public library, I bid on two hours of organizing with a professional organizer, Simplify with Eileen.  I have bid on this prize for years, and finally, I won the prize!  When she came for the initial consultation, I ended up with homework:  organizing my necklaces.  I needed to purchase mini Command Hooks and hand up my necklaces.  Check out the finished product:



 Hello Purging!

To further help in my organizing effort, I am now reading this book:

https://www.amazon.com/Gentle-Art-Swedish-Death-Cleaning/dp/1501173243/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1532726103&sr=8-1&keywords=the+art+of+swedish+death+cleaning+by+margareta+magnusson

 I'm not in love with the title, but I've already made strong connections.  The author - who is between 80 and 100 years old - speaks about cleaning out someone's "stuff" after they've died.  I did this job for my mother and my father, and I would prefer to clean out my own "stuff" ~ not that I'm planning on dying; I'm just planning on purging my unnecessary "stuff!"



Almost Time to Say Good-Bye to my Boot

I'm in the home stretch with my orthopedic boot.  On Thursday, I'll be getting an x-ray which should show that my foot is all heeled!


Hello Jellyfish~!

Check out this behind-the-scenes picture from the New England Aquarium. 



These jellyfish are being groomed to be part of an exhibit or food for other fish.




I really enjoy hearing from you.  Please let me know in the comments if you bought anything at Nordstrom or if you have a must-read book to recommend!

  1. Thursday will be an exciting day! I'm sure it will feel so amazing to have that boot off. I've never been to the New England Aquarium. I've been to Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, CT several times. An extremely generous parents bought me a membership when Seth was little! I just finished reading Hatchet by Gary Paulsen for the first time ever. I think it might be a bit too mature for my 3rd graders, but I loved it. Have a good week!

    1. Hello Jan! I have never read Hatchet, and I probably should some day. Last summer my husband and I went to Mystic, but we didn't go to the Aquarium because we were recuperating from being in NYC which means constant activity. Summer is flying by so I hope you have a fun week, too!
