Hello Monday!

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Mine was very long and somewhat un-eventful, but very needed! I went into this last weekend with a list of things-to-do that were a mile long and thankfully got most of it done!

Friday evening I went to Happy Hour at Chevys with a bunch of girlfriends and had a blast. It was a nice way to end a busy week and you really can't beat their hh prices. I was able to eat, had two margaritas and brought home Michael dinner all for $20! I swear, hh really is the only way to eat out these days!

So my goal for the weekend was to get my spring cleaning out of the way. I wanted to streamline all of the extra "stuff" that we've collected in the last 4 years and get rid of it. My plan was that if it was still in boxes or hadn't been used in the last year I was going to donate it. Saturday I got up at 7am and was able to tackle the guest bedroom, my makeup studio and the living room. I had 6 boxes of stuff that needed to go to the Goodwill.
I started with the guestroom closet because it was a huge disaster. I mean I opened it and was actually a little embarrassed. Yes, there has been a lot that has happened in the last year that has taken up a lot of my time, but it was really, really bad. I almost wish I had a picture of it, but I didn't think to pull out a camera to document it.
Well, I got through those three rooms and was exhausted. By 8pm I was laying on the sofa wanting nothing more than to sleep I did. While Michael was catching up on the DVR, I was snoring on the sofa. :)

We got up early and went to the early service at our church. We are just starting out at this church, so it was nice to see the difference in attendance. Surprisingly the earlier service had more people! I am not sure why, but I always figured that the services later in the day would seat more. I guess I am the only one that likes to sleep in on Sunday mornings?

Church ended at 10 and back to the house we went. I changed out of my Sunday best and got right back into it. I was able to tackle the family room/kitchen and our Master. I filled 2 large moving boxes just from our closet alone! We finally hung up the curtains in our bedroom that I bought last October and I was able to reorganize my personal makeup collection. It was nice to go through it and get rid of products that I've had since the beginning of time. For the stuff that's still good, I've decided to do the Youtube Project 10 Pan. Michael was very happy when I told him this because it means that I am not allowed to purchase any new makeup products, limited edition or not, until all of the items that I decided I wanted to use up are gone. Luckily for me they were items that were halfway to mostly gone. I figure it will take me about a month, so it shouldn't be that difficult.

Well now it's Monday morning and I am back to work. Maybe now that my house is "so fresh and so clean, clean" I will finally do my home tour! Are any of you interested??


  1. I'd love to see a home tour!! Love your blog, I'm a new follower! :)

  2. Isn't cleaning the best and worst feeling ever? I'm always SO exhausted but I love the feeling of going to bed in a completely clean house and clean sheets. And organizing is the best! Good work!

  3. YES! Love me some home tours. Sounds like a very productive weekend. And I have to agree, happy hours/affordable prices are definitely the way to go when eating out!
