40 Bags in 40 Days

I have had this challenge on my "to do" list for a few months now. The goal? To get rid of 40 bags of stuff in 40 days. Cheryl from A Pretty Cool Life reminded me of this challenge this morning and I'm jumping on board. She wrote a great post explaining it here.

This morning, I'm making a list of areas that need a good purge and then filling my first bag. I always have such a hard time getting rid of stuff. I always think I can still use it, it's still good or I'll need it as soon as I get rid of it. However, my closets are jammed, the toy room overflows and my office, well, let's not even go there. Wish me luck!

Where to start? I think I'm going to need another cup of coffee...

Valentine's Day Lunch

Who doesn't love a surprise in their lunch box?

Yes, Charlie's lunch today is entirely heart shaped. I included sandwiches, cheese, strawberries, kiwi and eggs, along with a valentine and some heart-shaped stickers. Did you know you can shape hard boiled eggs? I followed the tutorial here. I still need some practice but they turned out pretty cute for a first try.

Happy Valentines day!
