The Weekend of Unfinished Projects

Right now as I type this, my hubby just took a whole bed full of metal to be recycled at the recycle center. Next up he will be loading all the other crap (sorry mom) that has been sitting patiently in our yard & behind our shed, begging to be laid to rest, to the dump. It's free dump weekend. We are taking full advantage of it. Thankfully my subtle hints of how our yard is starting to look like we are related to the Clampets, have not fallen on deaf ears. I'm not kidding when I say we were turning into "those neighbors". You know the kind I'm talking about. I love that Dean has been working so hard on the outside yard. I feel like it's starting to match the hard work he has done inside.

Zoe has been daddy's little helper. Silly little girl. She kept asking me to take her picture & then would cover her eyes and just giggle. She did this over & over again.

Me, well I've been an organizing fool. I finally got the closets switched over. It took me most of the morning. I put all the girls toy sets into baskets. Somehow I have ended up with a little extra room. Go figure. It feels amazing when you walk into their room. I am so excited about how it's progressing. The girls are excited because they can actually find their toys. We both win. I can't wait to share the before and after of all the stuff I took outside and spray painted yesterday. I'm tickled pink with how it all turned out. I only have a few more things to paint today. I hope to have some pictures up by the middle of next week. I still need to finish painting their walls before I show the big reveal. Even then there are three major projects that I still need to finish before their room is completely done. I still need to paint the bookshelf, dressers, and bunk beds. Those will have to wait a little bit longer. In the mean time I think it looks a whole heck of a lot better than it did.

Well I'm off to put our closet back together now. Hugs to you all. Hope everyone is having an awesome weekend!
