Pottery Barn Can Wait

April 9, 2018

So often, I hear women talking about how their house is taken over by kids and doesn't resemble Pottery Barn in the least.  Good!  Your home isn't Pottery Barn...it's your home!  Now, don't get me wrong...I love Pottery Barn as much as the next gal, and I would love to furnish my home in items from there, but my home is not always going to look polished and 'Pottery-Barn-esk'.  

One of my favorite spots in my home (and the spot I use the most) is this calendar!  I don't have a discreet little calendar in my purse (kudos to those who can get by with those!).  I have this big ole' 22"x17" paper calendar!  It even includes a color-coded key!  Each person in the family has an assigned color and I write down our activities on the calendar each month.  It's great because the kids can use it to see what the day will hold (even Wes sees a green word and knows he has something happening that day).  If I didn't have my wall calendar, I could not function!  I'm very picky about it too!  I'm the only one allowed to write on it and the markers used for it are only for Mom!  (so I'm a little anal about it, but hey, I've gotta have something!)


Don't use your home as a magazine article in the making...make it functional so you don't lose your mind!
