Happy MLK Day

One interesting fact about MLK...
In 1954, Martin Luther King became pastor of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabamahttp://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/peace/laureates/1964/king-bio.html

What a day for a school vacation. The wind has been gusting at between 25-40 mph.

 Needless to say there are not many people out at the park today. My girls, they don't really care. They have spent almost the whole day outside.  Eli and I tried to join them for a little while, but its no fun to be out there.

The boys decided to stay inside all day. Blake had a friend over so they played video games.

Brock spent the afternoon on his Kindle Fire. He has to go to work at 6 tonight so he will enjoy the wind while at work!

Doing things inside would be the best idea for today. The yogurt shoppe is calling my name!
Have a great week everyone!

happy sunday


I finished my room! I actually finished it last week, but it was the first week back at school and back to the same crazy days so I didn't have a chance to post until today!

 Moved the bed to show off the windows!
Hid the baby bed.

New love- vintage mirrors. The top one was my Granny Dots.

 Dresser moved to the other wall.
 TV center that was in the living room made for a great way to hide my mess of clothes.

 I feel so...I can't even explain how I feel. My room had been a mess for so long and guess what...I only spent $7 on a new laundry basket. Well under the $50 budget I wanted to stay under!

Just a little something extra, looks like someone has been playing with mommy's camera again! Love you Mini-K!

A mess!

I love the character of old houses. I love my huge windows. I love having the kids schools with-in walking distance. The park is right across the street. The boys don't have to share a room. The girls are a little cramped, but they have great windows too. Its cute!

But my room is out of hand! Only thing I do is sleep there and hide stuff in there. If I cant find somewhere to put something I just stick it in my room and close the door. Its time to get a handle on it. But where to start and how will I ever fit it all in this little space? This will be my project for the next few days...

My bedroom is pretty small. I have a queen sized bed, a dresser (had it at a child) a chest of drawers, a cedar chest, end table and a Great Dane house!

This is my work t-shirts and a few other things...

And this is the only closet I have and YES, it is as small as it looks... Not sure how I will make this work, but I will give it a try!Wish me luck!
I hope my budget of $50 will get it done!
