Busy Weekend

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! First, I want to thank you for your nice comments on the granite! Glad you like it!! Some of you have this same granite, so I was glad to know that you are pleased with it! I'm looking forward to next Tuesday!!






Well, my weekend was pretty busy...As you can see by Chase's room (that I can't believe I'm showing you...lol) it was time to clean out! On Thursday night I was putting something in his closet when things started to just fall out! Do you ever get to where you just can't stand it anymore? Well, that's what happened...I just started throwing everything out of the closet and drawers into the middle of the floor and on his bed. It was overwhelming as you can see! We had planned on going through it right away, but I just didn't know where to start so I just shut the door for a few days. Funny thing...I let him have friends over and they were hiding in the stuff and I had no idea where they were! It was THAT BAD! lol...






Chase and I finally went through everything yesterday...whew! It felt really good to get rid of things and organize what he wanted to keep. He can actually fit his shoes in the closet now!
This shelf was a mess, so I straighten it up and put all the trophies together at the top. Much better...Now that everything is organized we can start redecorating. I'm going to put the bed on Craig's list soon along with the small computer desk.


You might remember I said we were going to do a music theme. Well, one of my bloggy friends sent me this picture. Look at that record headboard! I love it...I think I can make that.....hmmmm. It's a possibility.


I also worked in the yard and planted more flowers. I will show you the patios again soon. I'm waiting on some more pillows and a cushion that is being made.




Hubby decided he didn't want to do any work and decided to go fishing...lol. He was so proud of those bass! Yes, hubby they are big, but I don't know if I would say HUGE! lol...they were good though!

Have a great day!!

You did a great job on Chase's room. You seem to be such a great organizer. I like the record head board, super cute idea! =)

Did you enjoy the Bass for dinner? Thanks for sharing! XOXO ~Liz

Chase's room looks fabulous. I think you both did a wonderful job. Can't wait to see the kitchen. You hubby did good, glad the fish was good. Hugs, Marty

I went back and looked at your granite, it is beautiful. Mine isn't the same, but I have been thrilled since getting ours a month or so ago. I wish I'd done it sooner. I posted our new backsplash today.

That really is a room transformation. For a while when my kids were home, I just gave up. I'm such a neat freak that I was driving myself crazy and just kept their doors closed and cleaned things about every 3 or 4 months. I don't miss those days!

Oh I bet those fish tasted yummy :) They would have gone lovely with my salad from the garden!

you have been busy...love that headboard....

Farica said...

You have made me feel soooo much better! My two little boys, well....their room looks JUST like the before picture right now!! I am not kidding! I started to clean it up yesterday but thought, well, next weekend is a long weekend. So, I'll just leave it for a few days and do a really great job over the weekend! Thanks for making me feel better! Funny how it's like shoveling snow cleaning up after kiddos! Can't wait to see the new granite!!!

My closet used to be no different than Chase but that's not the case any more.Its some what organized now.
Fishing sounds exciting,yes those fish are big!
Chase should take the below fun quiz!

What does your wardrobe look like? Cluttered or well-organized?

I am so green with envy right now!! (but in a good way) I know how excited you must be about your granite counter tops!!! They have been on my wish list since we built our home. It is going to make you feel like you bought a whole new house!!!

I love the record bed idea. Very cool!! I can't wait to see how Chases's room comes out. Glad you had a lovely weekend.

Linda said...

Oh I know...it always looks like a tornado has hit, when people clean out closets!!! But yes, it feels so good to be organized.

Good job!
