If you follow us on Facebook then you know that we've been busy trying to take control of our crazy house these past two weeks...
hence the lack of blog posts, sorry...
It pretty much has taken all the strength that we have in order to KEEP cleaning, organizing, and SIMPLIFYING our lives, to prepare for a new busy year!

We have officially (besides the garage, and the junk drawer in the kitchen) cleaned out EVERY nook and cranny of this dang house!  And now I can actually FOCUS on getting a couple of the projects done on our massive list of "things to do" this year!

Here's a scary documented photo of the, LITERALLY, PILES of STUFF we were up against this time around.
yes, that's my child on top of the "pile-o-toys" ha!
Looks like the rubble after a disaster, no? ... LOL
...guess it kinda was. ha!

How did I neglect my house for this long?  *shiver*... NEVER again!
I have kept the house totally clean for almost a whole 3 days!
Go me! Woot, woot!

I started this whole cleaning bonanza because I was preparing our living room for something exiting...
Reference to this post, for a clue as to what.
I can't WAIT to share with you how everything has come together!  And for HALF of the price I THOUGHT I would have to spend!
It was all Cason's swift decision making skills and lack of wanting to "shop around" that got us a GREAT deal on EXACTLY what we wanted, QUICK! :)

If I remember right, after we were done buying our finds and found out that we got $60.00 BACK on our total JUST for using the right BANK CARD, he actually pointed to the poor sales lady and said...
" I pitty da fool, who pays too much fo'-der purchases!"

Okay... not really, but the picture was just too funny.
ohhhh... I need help.

Alright, I'm off to figure out what to make for dinner with eggs, mustard, and frozen broccoli...
jeesh! Momma needs to go shoppin'! :(
I better hurry before Cason get's home, Or it might be nearing TWILIGHT, before I figure out what I can come up with!

BWAH, ha ha ha HA!
oohhh gosh... *sigh*
ok ok... I'm done.

Hope you all had a FABULOUS Wednesday!

    I've been trying to go through stuff as well... with some success. I really need to tackle reorganizing my craft room and when I went to do it the other day I just stood in the doorway, took a deep breath, and then closed the door and let it wait for another day! LOL My husband said he would help and I just had no motivation so turned down the help.

  15. LOL you are soooo cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have missed your blog posts! I have been stalking your blog to see if you have posted pictures of the living room!!!! I CAN'T WAIT!!!!
