Shelf Reliance Giveaway

Enter to win some shelf reliance shelves on one of my favorite food storage blogs!


We have been busy around here. Never a dull moment.
My awesome husband was promoted to captain! I'm so proud of him. He is such a hard worker. I made him wait to take his boots off the other day so I could get a picture of him in his uniform. As you can see, he was excited. haha!

Katelyn is a busy girl. She is 8 months old, and getting around so fast! I need to get a baby gate. I didn't have stairs when the boys were little, so I didn't have to worry about putting up a baby gate! I also have to sweep more often! But I probably should be doing that anyway!!

Jacob is working on learning to read, and he is registered for preschool for next year. He is excited! He is a busy little man and I think he will love the structure that it brings!

Jonathan is registered for Kindergarten! I can't believe it. I guess he's not a baby anymore. Kids just grow too fast! He is excited to start "real" school.

As for me, I am working around the house.(only 4 bags to go!) I am busy keeping up with everyone.

I realize a lot of my posts lately have been about spring cleaning, but that has been on the brain. Well, I have hit my 40th day (from my 40bags in 40 days). I had a goal to get rid of 40 bags of junk/trash in 40 days. Life has been busy lately. Joe was promoted, I received a new church calling, Katelyn is crawling, Jonathan is registered for Kindergarten in the fall, and Jacob is registered for preschool in the fall! So, I have only gotten rid of 34 bags in 40 days! I am going to extend the time 10 more days to finish my 40! I am really enjoying going through my home and just getting rid of stuff! Toys we don't play with, clothes that don't fit, things we don't need, and dishes we don't use. It has been great! I have also been shopping less (I know, shocking) I have been trying to focus more on my home and family. I am really enjoying life right now!
