Ladies, ladies…we’re almost there! End of this week is just around the corner. 

Any plans for the weekend? 

Once the weekend rolls around I tend to tell myself “I really need to clean, do the laundry, do this and that”…and usually what gets done is laundry on Sunday night…like last minute Sunday night!  Because someone didn’t stay home,  rather she went outdoors and enjoyed the beautiful weather! 

Does that ever happen to you? 

I think I’m best off not planning on doing any cleaning. It usually gets done that way. Sometimes.

The story of my life!

    You look adorable!Girl, I hear ya on the cleaning. I set up my google calendar to email me every day to remind me to clean one room. On Mondays, it's the kitchen. On Tuesdays, it's laundry. And so forth. Has been working like a charm so far!

    I agree. If I say I'm going to clean I just end up trying to come up with other things to do instead. But if I'm just sitting around the house bored I get on a cleaning spree. Great outfit! I love your necklace I've seen you wear it in so many outfits and it always looks great.
