Exhausted

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

1. I'm absolutely exhausted. I'm not sure why that could be except that we got new bedding and a queen size mattress (we had a double, and with my 6'2" hubby, it was a bit tight).  I love sleeping in it, and I just don't want to leave the bed!  But shouldn't that make me less tired because of the great sleep?
I convinced Billy to get a Shabby Chic comforter because we found one he didn't think was too girly.  I was so excited, because, well, I adore all things Shabby Chic (the actual brand) at Target.
2. I'm thinking about eliminating single sentence sunday. What do you think?!

3. I get really giddy on rainy days.  Maybe it stems from my 4-year stay in hot, dry, Laredo, Texas, where rain was a luxury.  Maybe it's just the mood that it puts me in.  I just want to sit on my couch and read a book.


4. I'm currently taking ideas for change the world tuesdays.  If you have something to share, email it to

5. I consider myself pretty OCD about lots of things, but lately, our little apartment has been a wreck.  Okay, so maybe not a wreck, but it's not nearly as clean as I would like.  The weird thing is, I can't get motivated to get up and get things done!  Maybe I'm just in a funk.  Maybe my ultra-relaxed man has been rubbing off on me.  Maybe I'm just really busy and should give myself a break (which is highly unlikely to happen).

  2. I love that bedspread! I think it's a good mix of not to feminine but not super masculine! Hope you have a great week Sarah!

  3. I have the same problem with the bed thing---i think I get more tired because of our super comfortable bed! It's too hard to get out!

  4. I agree, rainy Sundays are the best. Unfortunately, this weekend we got a rainy Saturday...not at all what I needed. And a hot and sunny Sunday. Ah well. Have a great week!

  5. I adore shabby chic! We have several towels, curtains, sheets, and other marvelous decorating items from that line at Target. I am totally coveting your new comforter!!!

  6. ummm, i think you are busy and should give yourself a break!!! i used to be just like you, but kelly has robbed off on me... God bless him! : ) it's been good.

    okay, you should feature "voice of the martyrs." they are serving the persecuted church and are bringing attention to persecution all over the globe.

    i didn't realize billy is so tall! the bedding is totally adorable! love it.

    thanks for being a part of the random.

  8. You're right about rainy days! We're having one right now. I really want to curl up on the couch, but instead, I have to run errands. Boo. I like your idea of SSS, but I've found that blog traffic seems to be REALLLLYYYYY slow on Sundays. Maybe that's why the lack of participation? Love your new bed! It's beeeeYEWtiful! Hope you have time to slow down and smell the roses today...

  9. I do not like rainy days, especially at the end of May! It's suppose to rain here most of the week. Oh Mr. Sun, where are you? I hear you about being OCD where the house is concerned. I can't remember the last time I actually accomplished anything really around here. Have a great day!

  11. Love shabby chic and the rain. I live in Phoenix so rain is indeed something to dance about - and the smell of the desert after it rains is intoxicating. My post today goes perfectly with #4 - kinda fun.

  12. I am currently on the search for new bedding and the husband has vetoed several because they are too "girly". {Sigh} Rain has a tendency to make me.... lazy. Really lazy.

  15. I love your blog! What a treat to find you. Thanks for checking out my little corner and becoming an oh-so-cool Cupcake for Moose follower. Can't wait to read more of your site. Soooo pretty!

    p.s. I have the same target comforter. Mr. Schalk thought it wasn't too girly and lets me live out my shabby chic dreams. We have good men! :)

  16. I'm so pumped for you guys about your new bed! and beautiful new bedding :)
    And I'm afraid the relaxed husbands do rub off on us perfectionist types...I've seen it happen to me for sure! But at least we can hope we're rubbing off on them too, right?! :) haha

  17. Love the comforter! I adore anything Target...so I'm always eyeing the pretty bedding they have!

    About that OCD....I get into crazy moments where I have to pick up and clean everything...Justin, not so much. I told him the other day that I think he "undos" everything I do. (Maybe a little glimpse into what it will be like with little ones around...) My man is always teaching me to chill out and relax...think that is one of the big reasons God put us together. :)

    I like Single Sentence Sunday...I like the simplicity of it...but I can't say that I am as good as I should be about doing it each Sunday. I get in a lazy Sunday mode and don't get anything accomplished...including writing a sentence on my blog. (But I'm in as long as you do it...if my two cents help at all.)
