Day In the Life #11 Costco Haul / Erin Condren Unboxing / DIY / Recipe!

Hey Everybody, It's Mickey!  Today is Saturday July 21st and I'm sharing our July Costco haul, an Erin Condren Life Planner unboxing and a great dinner recipe!  I must be crazy to head out to Costco and Target on a Saturday but I am ready to go in my mostly from Target out fit of the day!

My shoes, jeans and ruffle top are all from Target and my Cardigan is from Ann Taylor!

Our July Costco haul is full of some long time favorites like the packaged Rotisserie Chicken that I buy every time I see it,  it's always a time saver especially in the Chicken Alfredo Casserole I'm sharing below!

It's has been a while since I received a box from Erin Condren!  I was so excited to come home to some happy mail on my front porch!  I ordered a 18 month Hourly Life Planner in the Metallic Painted Petals, so beautiful!  I also ordered a notebook with their new zippered Planner Folio!  I can't wait to share with you all how I use and organize my planner in upcoming videos!  If you would like to save $10 on your own Life Planner, Click Here

My project for the day is getting Boo's bedroom back together.  She moved into this room after one of her brothers left for college and never had the chance to make it her own.  She loves pale blue and gray so we painted and bought some new bedding and curtains to make it a little more hers.  I'm sure pictures will follow once we have everything in its place.

So I promised a great recipe using the rotisserie chicken from Costco.  This is the easiest recipe and the results are creamy, cheesy and delicious!  

For all the ingredients and step by step be sure to watch:


Chicken Alfredo Casserole **************************** 1 1/2 lbs cooked cubed chicken 12oz cooked broccoli 3 cups dry pasta 1-2 jars Alfredo Sauce 1/2 Romano Cheese 2 cups shredded Italian cheese blend s/p tsp garlic powder tsp Mrs Dash Tsp minced onion tsp Italian seasoning Crushed Ritz crackers Dried Parsley Cook pasta and broccoli according to package directions.

Decorate and Clean With ME

I have been on a quest to lighten and simplify our home and our foyer is the first room that you see upon entering our home. I have always loved the chalk painted cabinet in this space and I wanted to make some changes in the foyer to highlight this piece.
The first thing on my list was to change the skirt on the small table below the mirror. You would not believe that this table originally lived its life as a fish stand for our fish tank years ago! A little bit of paint and some fabric can do amazing things!

To see this sewing free tutorial be sure to watch the video below.


With a few more simple changes, our foyer has become a bright welcoming space to come home to and to welcome family and friends!

Vintage Field Trip and Room Sneak Peek

So today I thought we would spend the day together!  Head out on a field trip to my favorite vintage spot, sharing a spring OOTD

 and having a sneak peek at our family room rehaul! 

 Today is Friday April 6 and is the first day of my birthday week!  The fun started early this morning as the carpet guys can to install our new family room carpet, after school we head to Lucketts Va and visit my favorite vintage antique spot where I always find great inspiration for decorating and maybe even a new piece here and there to add to my collection at home.  

I am so happy to share the big project we have been working on; chalk painting our china cabinet in the family room!  

I always seem to making something in these vlogs, no food today but I do share an easy DIY on how to make a sweet lambs ear wreath.

It always makes me happy when I can create something that I have a picture of in my head.  In this case, I wanted a lambs ear wreath for my kitchen and all the ones I saw on line that I liked were too expensive for my budget.  I love the way my wreath turned out and it looks so perfect on the old window frame above the little cabinet in the kitchen.

DIY Homemade Cleaners

 Today is all about the 4 products that you probably already have in your house right now that can clean your home from top to bottom!  

By popular request I am sharing the DIY cleaners that I use to clean my home.  I do use store bought cleaners for really big jobs or cleaning jobs that need a little more muscle, but these are the DIY cleaners that I use daily and weekly to clean my home.

What you will need is some baking soda, which is a non toxic mild alkali that actually makes dirt and grease dissolve.  White vinegar which is acidic and can dissolve soap scum and hard water buildup.  Rubbing Alcohol which is a natural disinfectant and Dawn dish washing liquid which is a very gentle cleaner but is tough enough to cut grease.

I have created 2 free printable with 12 DIY Homemade Cleaner recipes.  You can download your copies HERE and even more DIY Homemade Cleaner recipes HERE.  You may find variations of these cleaning recipes on line.  The ones that I have included here are the ones that work best for me.

To see the cleaning tools I use an more information about the DIY Cleaning Recipes watch the video below!


Thank you so much for visiting today and if you have any questions or video requests, please put them in the comment section below!  So until I see you in that next video, I hope you love the life you have !
