We live in a lovely house that is older (I prefer older to newer even though it's not asthetically as pleasing, it has more character I think!)  Amongst it's beautiful features like hard wood floors and original fomica countertops, it also has the smallest closets in the history of the earth. John and I dominate every closet we have and we don't even have that many clothes, shoes etc. to store. I already change out our clothes for the seasons and keep any extras out in the garage in totes. So with this new little bundle of sweetness coming in a little over 6 months, WE NEED MORE SPACE! I guess of course we could make stacks of things. But I am weird about stacks. Unless it's like a stack of fuzzy kittens sleeping in a basket, then I'm all for stacks.

Anyway this weekend my lovely husband and baby daddy, John, purchased, assembled and hung some  fabulous (and inexpensive!) cabinets in our laundry room. I LOVE ORGANIZATION!
So this may be a boring post to you. To me, this is what life is all about..well, it makes me happy to say the least. If I could get paid to be a professional organizer I would be just fine with that. But not for hoarders. That gives me indigestion just thinking about it.  So I was very excited to reorganize this morning and consolidate, purge and arrange in my new cabinets.

After I took this he said "This is going to be what the rest of my life is like, right? Putting things together all of the time? Cribs, toys....I'm cool with that though."



Thank you, John Culpepper. You are sweet and also very handy.
I'm good with the ideas.

In other news. We are also expanding in other places:

Someone said, "you can't have a belly yet, you aren't far enough along"
Well, my once flat tummy begs to differ, friend.

And yes, that is a cat on my shirt. Score.


  1. That's the 3rd time in the past month that I've heard about somebody being told "You cannot be showing yet, you're not far enough along!" I don't get people. It all depends on how you carry the womb. Some ladies are more inner, some are more outtie. Just like a belly button, I say.

    One of my friends, who is about 14 weeks along now had her boss's boss say that to her. She was left in tears... thinking that people only thought her fat not pregnant. Poor girl.

    Congratulations, Missy! I'm excited for you!

  2. Then in that case, I think I am going to be an outtie :) I am short so really the only way is out! Thank you very much!

  3. OH my goodness you already have a cute little belly! :-) I love this baby! (and your laundry room :-))

  4. You can totally have a belly! For pete's sake I have a belly already! When you are used to having a flat stomach...a belly happens pretty fast! Also I love the cabinets, we have some like that in our laundry room as well and they are perfect!
