I heart days off...

Even though the day was rainy, Doug, Moses and I had a GREAT day off together!! We got SO much done it was crazy...we started the process of spring cleaning and going through EVERYthing to see what we could haul off to goodwill...we only got through our bedroom but we already have 8 garbage bags of clothes!!!!! How ridiculous is that!!! It feels so good to be purging things though and luckily for this spring cleaning I am in a great state of mind for letting things go...I FINALLY got all of my maternity clothes out of my real clothes and in their own storage...Is it weird that I kinda miss my granny panties and all their cottony goodness? If you haven't had a baby yet, don't you dare knock the granny panty...they will be your best friends and you will search endless stores looking for THE granny panty...anywho....I wish I could just spend all day organizing and going through stuff but there are lots more other things to be done...
My little tulips are on their way out...they have been a great breath of fresh air and reminder that SPRING IS COMING!!
I got these lovelies in the mail today...you can get some here. I am using some of them to embellish these sweet baby hats that I am making for some friends of my sister in law. :)
I also finished my house!! She is already bought and paid for...sorry if you were in love with her...there will probably never be another...
Here is the outside...the little ribbons on the side tie it closed!! :)
Inside...the little white dot is velcro...there is also velcro on the backs of all of the little babies. :)
Cute little babies!! :)
I also made these sweet little pears and apple yesterday..LOVE them...they are already in the shop.
And last but not least I also got a sweet little curtain made to hide my computer junk and bill sorter. Here is the before....
And the after...before you get too excited, I did not finally use my sewing machine, I used no sew iron on binding tape. Too cute and TOO easy. :) Like I said, we got lots done!!

Today has been wonderful. I am absolutely in love with this stage of Moses' life. He is so cute and SO precious and I am so so so thankful that I get to be part of his day to day life. There is not a day that goes by that I am not grateful for the opportunity I have in staying home with him. Apparently, we have been saying no a lot because Moses current favorite thing to chant is "no, no, no"...he walks around singing it to himself and shaking his finger in the air...do I really do that?
We also decided that this weekend we will paint our bedroom!!! And today at Target I found a duvet and bed skirt for 75% off...plus my discount (my honey is a Target Exec). I am going to use the pre-made duvet and add on an applique of sorts with the material that I have already bought. SO excited to get some of the big projects started. :)
Gosh I ramble a lot...are my entries too long?
Pin It!

everything looks great...makes me think you might be pregnant with all the nesting!!! oh, make sure your duvet has a dipper. mine has buttons and it is a constant struggle keeping the boogers closed. in fact i am about to sew some velcro in there....

Oh my, I am so jealous of a Target discount!

I followed you here from the Nesting Place. Love your cute projects and can't wait to see what you do with that duvet. That house is certainly adorable.

Considery yourself "bookmarked!"

No babies here. I am just one of those people who can't sit still. :) I am most happy when I have lots of things going on. :)

that first photo is very cool...love the reflection.

i know exactly what you mean by THE granny panty. i had a certain brand...perfect feel...and they went all the way over my humongo belly! i remeber seeing thongs in the maternity store and saying "What in the world?!"

the house book is so lovely.
lucky you to have such a nice day off.
