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.

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…

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…
