Long Time, No Blog
Where does the time go? Never thought I'd end up taking a 2 month hiatus from blogging, but that is certainly how it's turned out. Cameron already hit the 3 month mark...wow! Life is wonderful having 2 babies at home...not that you can really call Walker a baby anymore - oops! Nonetheless, 2 certainly takes more time than 1! For the past couple of months, I've given myself a break from blogging in an effort to work on adjusting to 2 and trying to work on our household running more smoothly, an ongoing project for me.
Simplemom is kicking off a 2 week Spring Cleaning party today, and that was a great impetus for me to jump back in - before & after pictures always help keep me motivated! We've had a good bit of company in the past weeks, so our house has been relatively neat, but I am a clutterbug, so there are always a few too many piles. I'm hoping that these next 2 weeks will get me a little closer to maintaining our house in a company-ready state...here we go! Today's task was to simply get rid of the trash &/or things that need to be given away...
My baking cabinet is where I keep my cookbooks/recipes & it has long been out-of-control - you could hardly get the flour out without an avalanche of recipes hitting the floor. It was definitely time to work on this one!
After (yea!) I can't wait to hear what Brad has to say the next time he opens up this cabinet! The top 2 shelves still need some work, but at least it's now easy to access things on the bottom one.
My jewelry armoire is my favorite bedroom catch-all...drives me crazy, yet again & again it gets covered up - must have something to do with being out of reach of toddler hands!
The bottom still looks a bit chaotic, but that's because we keep a crate of Walker's books & some little people for him to play with in the kitchen/dining area...it gets pulled out daily & played with, and since it really isn't the problem here, I didn't even touch it today...it's my junk that's a problem on this piece! I do need to look for a more closed basket/tote to store them in so they aren't quite so visible!
The bar seems to collect all sorts of things - Brad and I are both guilty of coming in the door & dropping any & everything right here...seems like it might be time for the Christmas reindeer salt&pepper shakers to be put away...you think? ;)
This little spot on the counter was meant to be a good snack launching point, but quickly spiraled out of control...
Ah - the bench...a gathering spot for all things headed downstairs...and/or extra baby gear...
Yea - I feel like major progress has been made, and overwhelming, it has not been. Can't wait to see what the next 2 weeks bring! I won't promise to blog every day, but I will try to keep up as much as I can...we'll see! And now I leave you with the cutest little toesies you've ever seen!
