Working on my 365 -- organize stuff

Well, I have began organizing things in my home and life, redid KC's room, check! Cleaned Chloe's room last night....again. Check! Cleaned out the dreaded powder room, cupboard and drawers ... Check! I finally bit the bullet, I have not even given this area a second serious thought, except when I am jamming more into it, in the ( insert, bow head in embarrassment) GULP... Nearly seven years since we moved in here. Life has just been to busy, sure glad we are slowing it down and get stuff done :). My hubby will be shocked, my kids will want to know where their mom's gone and what have I done with her. I'm a pretty tidy person, messes often cause me to have unwanted stress, but there are three things apparently didn't get that memo...my room, my laundry room and the powder room cupboards...lol. So here's to a great Tuesday Everyone...remember in the fight to get organized and declutter, it only takes one drawer at a time :)

Very Exciting Week...

We have so many things to look forward to this week... I have been looking forward to this week since September when I bought the tickets.
So June we got an NHL hockey team, once again, for those who don't know. The tickets sold out in mere seconds, tickets are hard to get and when you can, dig deep my friend... So I dug and dug and pulled out ... Gulp... $600, purchased 4 tickets and gave them (well Santa did..) to my family for Christmas... Well the game day has finally arrived... Thursday March 1st we will be enjoying our first, perhaps only,Jets games as a family!! Yahoo! Also to add to our excitment, I get two date night this weekend!! First Celebrations dinner theatre on Friday and MTC on Saturday.. I have to be quite honest, I often fall asleep during the plays, last one was Shirley Valentine, very funny-- did not fall asleep, but this next one is about when women get the right to vote... Doesn't start until 8:30... It's not looking good.. I should bring a hanky incase I droll, sometimes when I sleep I do that :) Hee Hee! At least I am not the snorer in the row in front of me... I sleep quietly...lol. Last but very not least ... Wednesday kicks off my week of fun, my first casserole exchange... I'm very nervous... What if they don't like it, oh gosh what if there is a hair in my casserole... I wore my hair back and everything but gosh, that is my biggest fear when I have company over or bring a dish... So I say a little prayer... Dear Lord, please let my casseroles be hair free & tasty... Thanks for everything!! On that note... Have a great Monday :)

Scrappy stuff

I did 3 pages, 1 being a two page layout.... 4 years later 2012 might just be the year I get our first trip to Florida completed!! Will post photos soon :)

So our Feb charity of choice...

We donated our money for the month to a Friend who hosted a charity for her friend who has cancer. I was unable to attend the crop she hosted in her honor, as I was. Busy Bee mom away at Brownie Camp with Chloe, but I gladly gave over our money to Nicole who then made sure it made its way to the Charity... This was such a great selfless thing to do!! I love warm fuzzy stories and acts of kindness! Just makes you feel like our children have a chance if the follow in these foot steps!! Be blessed on this chilly Monday Morning!!

Things I've made on Pintrest...

Chicken enchilada casserole... 5 of them actually (for a casserole swap). Very tasty! Cherry Coke cupcakes... Pretty yummy, not a real coke taste, more of a black Forrest cake taste.. Gonna soak the cherries in coke over night next time :). The Very Hungery Catapiller hand print painting... Very cute! Kids loved it! Just made Cadbury Creme Egg cupcakes with a vanilla butter cream icing ( found separately). So, at least it is an addiction which makes me productive... Also, saving bread tabs, so I can label all of my cords :). Pintrest I love you!! Sorry for all the Pinning chatter.. I just love it!!

I'm sorry, I know I've been away...

But i discovered Pintrest. I can't stop pinning. I pin all the time. I love it! I wish I could just get my but in gear to make, recreate and do everything I pin. Are you with me on this? Have you discovered Pintrest yet? I'm a little in love!
