Living the 40 Hanger Challenge

I have been living the 40 Hanger Challenge since February 1st and it was suppose to end on February 28th. I felt it needed a little more time. Not totally sure how I feel about this but I am doing it anyway.

Here’s what I’ve discovered. Some of the pieces I thought I would wear a lot never came out of the closet. I have been replacing those items with ones I want to wear. Weather in the Phoenix (AZ) metro area in February is wacky. Trying to predict what the best items for this was and is hard. Although March/April will stay in the 80’s mostly. It is also hard to get me photographed before I am running out the door or changing in to “mommy clothes”. You know the “mommy clothes”, the ones a mom wears when making dinner, cleaning, doing bathes and taking care of sick kids.

Here’s some photos of what I have put together.

I am continuing this challenge into April. Wish me luck. Transitioning the closet to spring is the next step. I’ll take a group shot of the current 40 before I move things out.

Are you about to pull out your spring wardrobe?

Empty Shelf Challenge – March

I knew this challenge would be hard. I started with a bang and have been dragging the last month or so. BUT, I am still moving forward, inching maybe but moving forward. Here’s the latest I’ve finished.

The Blessed LIfe was a little harder for me to get through not because it’s a hard read but it worked on my heart along the way so I took my time in taking it all in.

The Blessed Life

And because I am a mom and read about 20-30 minutes each kid I will include all these Junie B. Jones books C boy and I have been reading since the new year. These books crack us up.

Junie B.  Jones

I’m looking forward to the next book I’ve decided to re-read. I think it will help me keep on task.
