Spring 2019 Update

Stephanie Kamp Blog: Spring 2019 Update

Hey guys,

So yesterday was the first day of Spring! I love spring because it's the season right before it gets too hot, summer. Granted I do live in Florida so it's pretty much always hot but spring is definitely still cooler than summer here. It also means rainy season! You know, April showers bring May flowers! I love rainy season, yes it makes it hard to go out and do things but I just love it when it rains and I don't have plans for the day. My favorite thing to do is sit on the couch, watch a movie in my sweatpants and just look out the windows and watch the rain fall.

Anyways, I just wanted to do a fun little short post kind of about life. So about a week and a half ago my parents bought a new puppy. I'm not going to be sharing any pictures of her just yet because I want to do a full blog post on that. But her name is Tory and she yes she is named after the designer Tory Burch. She is a Cavapoo which is a Cavalier King Charles mixed with a Poodle. She is very cute and we all love her very much already! The reason they got her is because I used to have joint custody of my dog with my parents. I would get him during the week and then they would get him on the weekends. But it was becoming too hard on all of us to constantly have to say goodbye to him and switch him back and forth between the houses. So we figured it was time for my parent's to get a new dog! So look forward to that blog post.

I don't really have anymore trips planned for the rest of this month and I only have one planned for April and that's Disney for my moms birthday! We are going to the Epcot Flower and Garden Festival which is something we go to every year and we plan on going every year for who knows how long. It's a lot of fun and it's something I highly recommend. We're staying at the cabins at Fort Wilderness and our 3 dogs will be coming along so that should be very interesting! But we plan on spending a lot of time at campground, enjoying our time there and then only going to Epcot on the Saturday. We're staying Friday through Sunday. I'm sure I will blog about our trip! 

Work is going well! We are constantly having issues with our program going in and out and our customers not being able to print out their permits or upload any of their documents that they need to upload to get the permit reviewed. But we have been told that we are due for an update and it should be happening soon so hopefully that solves all of our problems. But who knows!

Basically to sum up my life I go to work and just wait for the 5 days to pass by so I can enjoy my weekends and get as much done as I possibly can, which includes relaxing and having fun! I enjoy going out of town pretty much whenever we can. Obviously Disney is my favorite but I'm super excited for a few other trips that we have planned. We're still not sure about what we have planned more towards the second half of the year but hopefully we end up going somewhere good or can plan some fun trips!

I also try to work on projects around the house on the weekends. I currently have two projects that I'm working on and I hope to finish them sometime by the end of the month. I plan on blogging about them which is why I'm not saying too much about them. We also plan on having a garage sale sometime in April I believe so that should be good. Hopefully we are able to sell a lot and clear out as much junk and not needed stuff out of our house. We have quite a few bags of clothes to try and sell. We also have some furniture that needs to be sold and some furniture that we want to redo before we can sell it. We also have random things from around the house that we've added to the pile. I also need to work on refurbishing my old MacBook a little and then selling it somewhere.

One of my main goals for this year is to try and get rid of as much stuff as possible that I just don't need or use anymore. I always think about living a minimalist lifestyle and then I go to Homegoods and fall in love with so many things for the house and it's like well there goes that plan! But I really just want to deep clean my whole life and get rid of things that I just don't need anymore. I also really want to focus on re-organizing everything in my house and make sure that I'm maximizing the most out of every space. The reason I say that is because I have a kind of small room and my queen size bed barely fits in it. I literally have a bed, 2 nightstands, a vanity, and this lingerie chest/tower thing and that's all I could fit in my room and technically it all doesn't really fit. It's very cramped! I use my nightstands to hold my pjs and my comfy clothes and then the rest of my clothes are in my closet and the lingerie chest. I also have things like jackets and sweater dresses stored in our guest room closet.

I would eventually like to be able to use the entire closet in the guest room as our craft closet so I'm hoping that If I redo my closet and figure out how to fit more in it and maximize the space I currently have then I should be able to remove the clothes from the guest closet and move them into my main closet. I also need to go through my shoes and get rid of the ones that I just don't wear anymore and probably never will wear again! Particularly some of my heels that are just crazy!

Anyways, I think I've gone on for long enough! I hope everyone has a great spring! 

Talk to you soon!
XO, Steph
