A New Year, A New You!

I say this every year!
I get the organizing bug in me. But over the weekend, the bug got into my husband! He spent all weekend reorganizing my pantry. For those of you who know me, I have a HUGE pantry.
I got a little annoyed at first because it made a big mess but once he was finally done, I could see his logic. So now I'm just fully appreciative of what he did. Now when I want to make spaghetti, he has my spaghetti sauce next to my pasta and my pesto. He has the refried beans next to the taco shells etc.

While he gutted out the pantry, I cleared out all the drawers in the kitchen. Tossed out pens and markers that no longer work and threw away unwanted items. I finished the boys room and closet too. We had the entire family working on something this weekend. Out with old and in with new!
We still have a long ways to go but I will be a happier person once it's all done, organized and what I call semi-feng shui!
The kids will love it too. I simply cleaned the refridgerator and they ooh and aaahh'd over that! (actually one of them said it looked like we had been robbed because there was hardly anything left in the fridge when I was done :)

Oh my goodness!!! I didn't know you were a blogger!!! I'm so excited!

I wish my husband would clean out my pantry! Ugghhh - Kaila can attest - it is horrible right now. Never been this bad!

We love Kaila so much! She is the best! And - to answer your question - Santa brought the kids huge chocolate bars. So I have a feeling that's what Trooper ate!

I get that same "bug" every once in a while - it is great when a few things get organized. Just wish Paul would catch that bug ever once in a while.
