end of the week exfoliation

Good morning! I hope you have a great weekend lined up for yourselves. I will be relaxing tonight and running the longest run (20 miles) of my training on Saturday morning. After this run, it will be downhill… towards the San Fransisco Marathon on October 18th. We got a call earlier this week saying our new sectional is ready(!!). I’m hoping it will be delivered today so I can crash on it Saturday afternoon while watching the Michigan game with E. I’m dreaming of lounging on that chaise all afternoon long.

Take a look at the exfoliations this week. You’ll even notice our existing couch on the list- if you’d like it, let me know. We’re gonna sell it for cheap.

End of the Week Exfoliation


“It felt so good to “exfoliate” my closet last night, that I FINALLY put the following items into the “donate box” after too many years of holding onto them: a sweater that isn’t kind to my body shape, three skirts that are far too short, a belt that only fits too high, a turtleneck that looks dumpy, and three purses/clutches that are cute but too young for me. Simplify, simplify, simplify!”



“Brand new socks, tights, and slippers! All these things were in my closet/dresser collecting dust…what a waste when someone else could be putting them to good use!”



“I found this jacket in my closet, and to my dismay, it still had the tags on it!  I think I may have bought it several years ago and just forgot about it.  The biggest bummer is that it doesn’t fit me anymore.  It’s too nice to just donate, so I may wind up trying to sell it on Ebay.  And if I can’t sell it there, then it’ll just be donated.  But, if anybody reading your blog is interested in it, let me know.”



“This is the cobalt blue microfiber couch that we’ve had for two years while living at our old apartment. It’s going to be replaced by our new sectional this weekend. If you’re interested in it, let me know. We’re willing to sell it *very cheap* if you live in Chicago.”

These are two pans from a starter set we got when we moved to Chicago. They are dirty (beyond dishwasher cleaning) and they make marks on our new stove top. So away they go.

    I start my training on Sunday for the marathon i posted about. I can’t wait to hear how it goes.

    Enjoy the new couch too. Nothing like a fresh piece of furniture!

  3. Can’t wait to see the new sectional in your space! Have a great weekend!

    Btw, I’ll be announcing a giveaway on Monday that I’m sure you’ll love – so be sure to stop by 🙂


  4. I think we might be soul mates. I just found your blog and I am in love. I have recently been on this complete kick about getting down to the things I love and not hanging onto things I don’t use or really like. It’s involved a few trips to Goodwill and ebay listings but I love it. It’s like a weight has been lifted. Thanks!
