Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday – as I’m able.
Good morning, sunshine! How’s it going? Last night we started painting the living room around 6:30 p.m.! That’s just how things happen when you’re juggling dinner, homework and other obligations. The gray color that I bought would seem to have a blue/lavender tone to it. . . .I am really TERRIBLE at picking out paint colors. Terrible. I’m like 0 for 23 when it comes to my history of picking out paint colors for our homes. Ha! It looks 100% GRAY in the swatch and the can. 🙂 But, I think once we get rid of the sage green walls (also in the living room) it should help make it more gray. I think getting whiter lights in our fixtures will help with that, too. I’m an optimist . . . who can’t pick out paint colors.
We shall see how the coloring shakes out. . . . but overall I’m excited to cover all the small holes left by the previous owners who used the plastic screw anchors to hang up everything. And I can’t wait to put photos from our travels on this wall. Will share more photos as we make progress! And it does feel good to do a home improvement project – it has been nearly 2 years since we’ve done any sort of project like this.
Yesterday I picked up my Zaycon Fresh roasts and I’ll be throwing one in the slow cooker as soon as I wrap up Rise and Shine. Our favorite recipe is this Mississippi Pot Roast recipe. It melts in your mouth! Everyone in the family loves it.
Yesterday I shared an update on my goals for this month. Painting the living room is on that list – so I’m happy we’ll be checking that off this month. You can read my goals update to find out how I’m doing.
I’m always scoping out Nordstrom clearance and noticed they marked down a TON of items today. A lot is 40% off but I found some great deals at 65% off, too. Specifically I noticed they have a TON of houseware items on sale. Things that would make great gifts! Shipping is free, no minimum.
And this week Cents of Style is having a Two for Tuesday sale and Tribe Jewelry is 2 for $15 with code 2FORBIRTHDAY at checkout (reg. $24.95 each). These are so cute.
