What would you do????

Question!!!!! What would you do if you had 48 HOURS all to yourself??? Pretty much ANYTHING (within certain limitations)?

WELL.................. I got it! Thanks D.B. and our wonderful friends, the Wallace's.

Here's what I did- It's not what you are thinking, And it's definitely not what I would have pictured myself to be doing either!!!

I ORGANIZED!!!!! Yes, I am Bragging.

I have been working away- room by room grouping toys and kids items into categories and like containers. WHEW, I am exhausted, yet exhilarated.

Why you ask? Because I have been completely overwhelmed with the clutter and chaos of the (excuse my french) Shit~ery that takes up prime real estate in our Home!

I could go on and on about that, but I won't! I am sure many other mom's out there can relate, right!

After the labor I endured, I got to do one of my all time , favorite activities...SHOP! This was probably the 1st indicator, back in 1999 when I chose my college Major, that Interior Design would be a perfect fit for me. Not only would I get to shop for people, I would get paid while doing it. Not so bad, Eh?

So I made my list (in my head of course) cause writing it down is what politically correct organizers do. I would go to Sam's and purchase the industrial bin cart that I have been eyeing for 3 months now for Preston's room. Little did I know that going to Sam's would also provide some comic relief. You know what I mean if you have ever ventured into Sam's Wholesale on a Saturday Evening at 6ish p.m. People actually shop and eat dinner (as a family) in Sam's. What???

Before that, I was going to return some previously purchased client items at two stores in the area, but then realized I didn't have my receipts. Those items would now have to be moved around, so the new bin would fit in the back of the Denali.

After that little show, I went over to Pottery Barn to return a lamp. While getting the lamp out, I realized the drapery rods that I bought to hang for a client were the wrong size. Now I am working- so I start thinking of other client projects. STAY FOCUSED!!! Okay, so I also got the 3 tiered basket for the kids bathroom- that I had next to my items the day I purchased the lamp and wrong rods, but forgot to pay for or take home that day.

After getting all loaded up again, I drove across the lot to the Container Store. This is a DANGER ZONE for someone like me. I walked in and my adrenaline started pumping- when this happens my vision gets blurry (just kidding). I needed some containers for my newly organized spaces. I knew what I wanted, striped burlap bins for the Armiore ,that I moved Friday night from P's room to the playroom. Yes, by myself after taking the VERY Heavy (not flat panel) TV and other electronics out. Of course, however, they only had 3 and I needed 4, so I chose the dark gray ones. A better choice anyway since the white stripes would be dirty after a few days in my kids' playroom! I also bought another vintage inspired wire basket to match the one housing P's Wii games in the re~purposed computer cabinet that is now his entertainment center! Yes, moved that Friday night too!

While I was in the "Zone", some friends called and invited me over for eats/drinks. Since , I knew I needed to take a break from all the neatness that was going on inside my "Busy Brain" (Danny actually coined that term for me), I said I'd be there soon. I ran home to drop off the new purchases and to check on Whitney's precious puppy, Olive, that I have been keeping this weekend. After a few hours of Girl time, I went home, ready to get that new cart in and assembled. An hour later, finished!


Next time I get the house to myself for 2 1/2 days I may tackle my closet!!!


Here are the items I purchased

I like to use creative storage ideas when organizing~ the multi~sized removable angled bins are perfect for legos, cars, crayons, markers, puzzle pieces, play-do, art supplies, dress up clothes, toy weapons, dolls, etc...


The tiered basket for kids bathroom counter- to hold soap, towels, toys, and I am sure lot's of other extra things like Happy Meal toys no one actually ever uses in a bathroom- or anywhere for that matter.




Got 4 of these babies to hold more TOYS! These could also be used for transport of said toys when leaving Mommy home to organize for a weekend!



These super cool wire baskets look old, but aren't!


I also grabbed this little tray to hold the iPhones while charging! $5 bucks well spent!

Here's what I missed! Sweet Babies in God's Beautiful Country
