long time, no...type?

I can't believe how long it's been since I've blogged. We have had so much going on between our chaotic lives and church/work schedules, to get anything done. Busy, busy!

Spring has ALMOST sprung. We get a little peak every day of what the summer will bring us. It feels like Christmas for me. I LOVE summer! I'm a total beach bum :)

So anywho, lately I've been chanting 'Less is More!' because well, it IS! We have been doing some major cleaning around here. Started with the garage; I didn't know the garage could look that good! It's just a garage, but it looks fan-tas-tic! Then I moved on to the Office which was basically storing random stuff and things I didn't know what to do with when we moved. It's not finished but it looks WAY better than before. Yesterday, I worked on Adelyn's room. She is growing up so fast, she plays with a toy for 2 months and then she's outgrown it...I'm running out of room to put outgrown toys! We attempted to put flooring in the attic yesterday. It didn't work out AT all. Justin got up there and said it's a crazy mess. I hope we can get it figured out so we can use it for storage. I'd hate to let the '3rd level' go to waste like that.

SO, I wanted to hit some yard sales saturday morning but that didn't happen, maybe this saturday? I need a solid wood bench and an old trunk. I've already got a cute little bookshelf. The plan is to sand it down and paint it for Adelyn's room. Never done anything like that before so wish me luck! I'll post pictures and such-as tomorrow.

Happy Thursday!!

  1. I've been doing the same thing in preparation for down sizing our house. There is something so liberating about living with less "stuff". Also, if you decided to paint that bookshelf, you don't need to sand it down as much as you have been. Just take 10 min and do a quick all over scuff-up. Clean off dust, and you are ready to paint. Don't make it harder than it needs to be.
