Please let me introduce myself. My name is Ann. I'm the author of this blog.
I guess that is what's necessary when I take long breaks from blogging.

My high hopes of blogging everyday once I got back from the holidays fell short when I was overtaken by a need to clean my apartment. I mean clean. One day turned into 7+ days. This might lead you to believe that we are slobs borderline hoarders, but that's not the case. Creeping into the timeline, A.D.D. (self diagnosed). I was here then there...then back to here with a lot of repetitive unnecessary-unproductive actions. Sigh.
While things are looking a lot better I am now focused on minimizing my magazine piles. I have so many magazines that have been gifted to me over the last three years. I read them from time to time, but very rarely get rid of them. I pulled the "I will look at this more...later." Later has come and gone according to the fashion treads and what's "in" according to the design world. I have a pile...I mean a mountain of magazines that I am going through.

Well, there you have it. I'm back...leaving you with a bedtime snack. Enjoy.

Do you save magazines? How often do you re-read or refer to them?
How much do you love Oreos?

Hey there chickie! I have been thinking of :) And here you are!

Yep, I am a mag reader too. So is J. And that equals piles of mags in our home, too!

Will you share your Oreos? We have none!
xo, misha

I do not save magazines longer than a week. If I haven't gone back to read some more by then, it's probably not going to happen.
And I do love oreos!
I post everyday, so you know my house is a mess!

Isn't it nice to have a clean place??? I cleaned quite a bit today and I'm crossing my fingers that it will stay that way. If only I could get the laundry under control!! (not even the dirty laundry.. the clean!)

Magazines and I have a love/hate relationship. Sadly, I don't read them... I only look at the pictures. I know... it's silly. They pile up and pile up and I end up passing them along to my mom after I tear out the pictures that inspire me. I really don't even know how I get magazines??? But I do... lots, it seems.

And I love Oreos, but try to stay away from them, though I do get a pack every year around my birthday, which is next month :)

I have a problem saving magazines and I usually throw them out if they are 3 months or older.

I literally threw out over 500 magazines when I moved in September. That part of this post I can relate to.

Blogging everyday can be a hard thing to keep up with! Now if our houses cleaned themselves and food just magically appeared on our plates every night... that would be magical and so cool! :)

Don't you hate it when the clutter seems to overtake your LIFE??? Ugh! I feel your pain. I finally, finally, finally hung our pictures here....they were just in piles all over the place, getting in the way, looking like a mess. I felt so much better when they were up and off the floor!!!

I do not even get magazines and if one does show is in the trash by the next day.
