TGIF!

If you saw my Instastories then you know the struggle of moving 2,000+ miles in one week is getting REAL. I’m currently sitting in my bed typing this surrounded by sh**, for lack of a better word. We have high hopes of accomplishing a good amount of packing, purging, donating and organizing this weekend, so cross your fingers that happens.

Anyway, I wanted to ask a random question to you all today…

…do you make your bed?

I spent the first 23 years of my life rarely making my bed. My parents never forced us (unless guests were coming), and in college my theory was “I’m going to get back in and mess it up again tonight.” But then something changed. As soon as I made the move to California I started making my bed. Not everyday, but for sure on the weekends and maybe a few week days as well.  It made the room look and feel cleaner and it made me feel more pulled together. I’m not sure why I started caring all of the sudden, but I bet it has something to do with looking for order and calm in a situation that was overwhelming.

I used to think it would be such an inconvenience to make my bed, but the actual time it takes is minimal. And, as soon as I finish this, I’m going to make the bed, and use that as my starting point for the to-do list I’m trying to tackle today.

So tell me, (because I’m super curious) – are you a bed-maker? Why or why not?

Much love guys, I’m off to pull this apartment (+ myself) together.

PS. Remember when I mentioned red + blue being my new go-to color combo? Looks like its here to stay!

xo, Maddy

    I aspire to be someone who makes her bed daily, but I probably only manage it a couple of times a month 😉

    I make my bed FIRST THING every single day. I didn’t always. My parents didn’t enforce it either, and we had the same attitude in college. But when I moved into my first place, I started to really care about how it looked and then I realized I felt better when my bed was made – like I had accomplished something.

    Even when I wake up at 5am for 6AM training sessions, I make my bed. That usually involves moving the dog and making it around him. 🙂

    God speed on the packing!

    I ALWAYS make my bed in the morning. It was something I had to do when I was growing up, and it’s a habit that has always stuck with me. It just…bothers me to leave it messy!

    Love the outfit, as always! 🙂 I do make my bed, most of the time. Though secretly I hope Ben is going to stay in bed a bit longer so he’ll do it for me hahah! It just makes me feel like my life is put together for some reason, though I hate the actual act of doing it.

    […] I’m a horrible thrift shopper. I don’t usually have enough patience, the smell inside the store gets to me, and over my years of trying to become a thrift shopper, I’ve purchased numerous pieces that I’ve worn once or not at all. After coming to the realization I get more bang for my buck by purchasing new items, I’ve almost completely stopped thrifting. I do still use Poshmark here and there, or if an item I wanted has sold out I will try to find it secondhand. (Or sometimes I decide I love a pattern from last season J.Crew…that’s what happened with this top). […]
