Happy Monday! It’s so good to see pavement again. The snow was beautiful but I am happy it’s gone. I do know that’s not the case for everyone so I wish you safe travels.

On to food (I love food).

Since I hadn’t been grocery shopping in a while (sick then snow) we have been eating from the freezer and the pantry. It’s so nice to have those resources. Our pantry was in dire need of some decluttering so I spent a day last week on just that. I should have done it much earlier and I need to make a plan for how often to do it but it’s sooooooo much nicer to be able to see what we have and find things now.

We had one of those, “had to be there”, moments after cleaning the pantry.

We’re Fixer Upper fans so once I was done cleaning the pantry my daughter blind folded my husband and walked him to the pantry. I, in my fake southern accent voice said, “Mr. Quinn we took your all-in budget of zero dollars and zero cents. We reworked some things. Found containers in the garage. And hopefully have given you the pantry of your dreams. Are you ready to see your Fixer Upper?”

Then my daughter removed the blind fold and my husband dropped to his knees with his hands up on his face exclaiming, “Oh my goodness! I love it!”. Fake tears and all. We couldn’t stop laughing but I understand if you’re going, “okay”. Hahahaha! Oh man it was funny!
