whoa, lazy

Okay, okay... this time I have no excuse. It's been...oops, 10 days. I honestly cannot claim that we're crazy busy here. Somehow, it's December. Somehow, my baby is *gulp* walking. Somehow, my morning routine before starting work at noon has excluded computer time for the past couple weeks. Somehowwww... okay, that's all I got. So... my house is being kept clean. Something may be changing around here and I think I like it. It may have a little bit to do with this nice notepad my cousin made for me... it's so pertee...

I have been pretty regular with my Twitter and Instagram. Pat on the back.

Hmm... what else... I'm rather bummed that we don't have our Christmas tree up yet. There are absolutely NO decorations in this house and that, folks, is a tragedy. And I'll add holiday decorations to the "to do" list for tomorrow morning. Yay!

Oooh, oooh... I know. The last 2 weeks my sister, Megan, has been coming over so Dave and I can clean the house. Not daily cleaning stuff, but REAL nitty gritty cleaning. She's all... what exactly are you going to be doing!? And I'm all... you shut you're mouth when you're talking to me... kidding Pigg! We have a habit of being dirty piggs around here so we wanted one night a week to be about deep cleaning something. anythingggg! I shouldn't say dirty because we're not "dirty"... we just have a home that is lived in ;) very lived in... We've been here a year and there are still things in boxes and piles of things we don't quite know what to do with... so last week Dave cleaned the garage to fit the suburban and I cleaned the dresser in our bedroom. Now, I know what you're thinking. That's it! Well... you didn't see that garage or dresser. Ridiculous! Below are some before/after shots of our bedroom dresser. Embarrassing how this junk collects!

dusting is overrated ;)

after

Moving on to this week. This week we worked together, completed only one "project," but I'm SO happy we chose this room next. My office...
These are all photos from after but trust me... this is a HUGE improvement. There were papers on top of everything, 2 boxes where that orange chair is sitting, and the closet... oh the closet... now you can actually walk IN to the office. The kids have been playing on the floor in here. It's a Christmas miracle ;) We'll see how long we can keep it this way.

Thanks for being patient with the blog as of late. I promise to be more interesting... or maybe not... free entertainment at the very least :)
