Project #1 - DONE

Sometimes I think my husband is superman.
This is what his closet looked like on Sunday morning..

He tore out the old hang bars along with the one piece of lame wood that was the shelf.
He patched the wall where the old shelf was, scraped the popcorn ceiling and tore out the molding.
Kate and I took a trip to Home Depot on Monday afternoon to pick up the last of the supplies.
I took off my apron and traded it for a tool belt and textured the ceiling and walls and primed while she napped.
I also threw out all these chunky hangers

took a quick trip to costco and bought these heavenly hangers!
50 for $15, best deal out there....I bought two boxes!

brand new closet!
fresh paint and moldings..
4 shelves, 4 drawers and space for a space saver basket

Doubled the hang space!
2 bars plus a shelf that runs along the top that will have wicker baskets for storage
This will be perfect for another kiddo one day!

Until then my husband has filled it up quite well
He has a ton of clothes
This is after we made a discard and giveaway pile
Ta Da!

Ahhh, it feels so good to have another room and closet down!
Everything got scrubbed and organized. Very refreshing.

The grand total for this project: $450
It was worth every penny for our sanity and making the most of our little space.

Our to-do list for the house seems to be growing as I read home magazines and get ideas on how to organize and use spaces in the home to the max.
I'm excited.

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!
