Spring Cleaning

I've been cleaning upstairs all day. I'm trying to stay busy and not pay attention to the depressing weather outside! I got rid of two bags of trash and one of give-away stuff. And I pretty much used a whole bottle of febreeze in my boy's room. Ok, not a whole bottle. Every time I turn around that room has a funky smell. Is it a boy thing? haha!

Ignore the unmade bed. The sheets are in the dryer!

And no, I don't know how to take the date off the pictures. I haven't read my camera's manual.

Welcome Spring!

Today is the first day of Spring! I am so ready for Spring and summer! As I get older spring and summer are now becoming some of my favorite seasons! And not just because I can send my kids out to play! haha! I love taking walks in the evening because it stays light out so late! I love working in the garden, and actually having green grass! Yes, until I moved to North Carolina I thought grass stayed green year round.
Yesterday we went and bought everything for our garden! I'm so excited to work on the garden! I need a hobby.
My husband built this for me, because he's awesome!

So tomorrow I need to get busy and plant everything!!

I'm embarrassed to admit I've only gotten rid of 6 bags in 13 days, so today and tomorrow I am going through my house like a tornado! In my defense last week was so busy! INSANE is more like it. My husband had finals every night so He wasn't home very much and I had quite a bit going on as well. We were both exhausted at the end of the week! So, I am re-focused and preparing to fill a ton of bags this week!

I got this idea from another blog. If anyone else is doing this, here is a link to some tips!

Pottery Barn

I'm falling in love with pottery barn. I think I've spent too much time browsing their website.

My house is falling apart

Ok, not really, it is being somewhat taken apart, and put back together. We have been in the house almost a year now! I can't believe it. Time sure does fly when you are having fun! So, we had our 10 month walk through which is when they go through and see little things here and there that need to be fixed. They do it at 10 months because it has been through all 4 seasons for the first time and shifted a little. (Most people call it "settling") So today is the day they are fixing everything.
Most of it is small touch ups. I had a small part of my island that got some water damage because it wasn't sealed correctly. So the counter top guy is installing a whole new one.
Kind of crazy entertaining 3 kids while random guys are walking in and out of my house. But, my kids have been SO good today. And the weather is fabulous so they have been playing outside a lot!
So, my sink is in my garage and the plumber may not be able to put it back until tomorrow. Oh well, we have other ones!

I walked in the living room after being away for a moment and saw this:

One of the cutest things ever. Jonathan was reading a book to Katelyn and Jacob!They were all three looking at the book! Katelyn looked up as soon as She saw the camera of course! I love my kids!
