Organizing 101

Glad to know that I'm not the only one who has the desire to become more organized and chuck things that we haven't used in the past year. I will be walking you through our home as it becomes more organized through the year. I'll start with something simple that has made a big difference for us. Last year I went to Home Goods and bought out all their bigger baskets and a couple small ones too. Here is what I did with them:

Our drawers in the kitchen are so much better now that things are in their place. I can open the drawer without things flying out at me and know exactly where everything is.
I found these metal dividers at BB&B

 Under the kitchen sink.
AKA Disaster zone!
Everything seems to end up under the sink.
 Our basket holds 90% of our cleaning supplies.
 No more spilled Windex for us!

 The Guest Bath
AKA my soap shop
Everything is under the sink from Chris' hair gel, shave gel, bubble baths, soaps, band aids...
The basket holds all of the bathroom cleaning supplies

One section in the hall closet holds our guest towels..
All of the washcloths are in a cute little basket.
ps. can you tell that 50% of our towels are in the wash right now?

Master Bathroom
AKA, seriously two people have to share this?!
I have one side of the vanity and Chris has the other.
OK, maybe he just has one drawer on the other side but isn't a master bathroom really for the chick anyway?
My make up drawer was always a war zone.
 It was until this..

Yes, I have a small obsession with MAC

Under the sink..more baskets to hold the mess!
I try to go through all the baskets a couple times a year to clean things out, re-organize and there's always the "oh yeah, totally forgot we had that!"  So, I'm glad y'all have gotten up close and personal with our not so pretty places in the house.
These pictures look messy but I promise you they have been such a huge help to us.
Happy Organizing!

And um, as far as the closets go...my husband wants to move the closet door in the master bedroom over a few inches to expand our space. Not sure about this so I'll get back to you on that once I get over my freak out of more construction.

Celebrating 10 years..

Chris and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary on October 6th! We celebrated today by spending the entire afternoon and evening together, kid free.  I found a killer deal for couples massages on Groupon and learned that if a deal looks too good to be true, it is.  Things we've learned after 10 years of marriage; don't take yourself too seriously, laughter is the secret to a good time and chocolate makes everything ok. 

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…

TwistShake Baby

Our sweet Sophie Mae is just starting to take a bottle like a pro. You know where I can finally run some errands kid free and not stress about her starving because she only likes the boob.  I've been giving her a bottle 3x a day, the main one being at bedtime to ensure she gets a belly full because sleep is a good thing!  We are in a good transition and I plan to stop nursing when she's around 9 months old.  I've collaborated with TwistShake Baby!
