Weekend Wrap Up-Productivity

We had such a productive weekend, it must be the warm weather. On Friday we both got home from work a little early and went to Olive Garden for dinner. A big storm was coming so afterwords we ran to Giant to get the french bread for the Crock Pot French Toast and headed home. So Friday wasn’t that productive but the rest of the weekend was productive.

Saturday we got up and enjoyed our crock pot breakfast with some grits and then we got ready and headed to the farmers market. Since I had not made my grocery list yet we just got some local honey to hopefully help our allergies. I’ve head that helps, have y’all? I then convinced Tyler to take me to Ikea for some picture frames for some projects I am doing. Well we came out with 7 picture frames and a new dresser. We have been wanting to replace our dresser for awhile and we finally did. It looks great, but more on that later. We had lunch at Panera and who knew? They have pasta now! So that pretty much made my day because if you know me, you know I love pasta. We then headed home and stopped on the way to do our grocery shopping.

Saturday night we had another delicious meal which I will be sharing with you all this week. We ate good this weekend! Tyler put together our new dresser while I FaceTime’d with my best friend, don’t you just love modern technology! We had an adventure getting that old dresser to the driveway, now it’s waiting for us to do something with it.

Sunday was church, lunch at Bob Evans, a few more errands then home for an afternoon/evening or organizing and cleaning. Our house is really coming together. We also got a beautiful mirror to go above our new dresser. I can’t wait to share it with you all! And Sunday was another delicious meal to share. Like I said, it was a productive weekend and I got ahead on my things to blog about so stick around, give us a follow and check out our Twitter and Facebook pages (whichever you prefer). We would love for you to follow us and keep coming back because some yummy, great stuff is coming up soon!

All of my pictures of the weekend are for future posts so for now enjoy this lovely picture of my precious Dolly Wolly, who was not so precious and got a hold of one of my favorite pair of shoes, sigh.

P.S. Did you guys get anything exciting done this weekend? Any spring projects in the works?

Spring Clean Out-Step 1

Ok so who does spring cleaning? I have never done a true spring cleaning but I have also never had my own house. So maybe it’s this warm weather but I am feeling inspired to clean out the house. Like majorly because we need to maximize the small amount of space that we have. I need to follow my Aunt Kellie’s rule and get rid of stuff I have not touched in a year and organize the stuff I do use. Easier said than done. This is going to be a process but last night while Tyler was at softball practice I made my first efforts.

Step 1: Clean out drawers, closet and switch out winter to summer clothes (because it’s finally WARM!)

I feel like thats a pretty basic step and I try to do it more than just once a year but my drawers were a mess so I cleaned them out and tried to put clothes I don’t wear in a bag for goodwill. Unfortunately I seem to have an emotional attachment to like half my clothes, I will be working on that. I just had a phone conversation with my Aunt Kellie while in the process of writing this post and I’m feeling inspired so I better go straight home and throw out those clothes fast.

Step 2 is going to be to organize all my stuff that needs to be in the storage area and get it in there.

Our guest bedroom has become a throw all place. Everything goes in there and it’s such a cute room but it’s cluttered with after christmas sale decorations, winter clothes, shoes and more. So my next step is to get that room into shape and get the proper things into storage.

Maximizing the space I have. That is my goal. Please let me know any tips you have for living in a small space with too much stuff, other than the obvious one which is let go of your emotional attachments and throw  it all out! But I mean I can’t throw out all my christmas decor and such, so it’s going to be all about organization and structure! Here we go!
