Alex's Birthday

Today is my gorgeous, smart, wonderful oldest daughter's 14th birthday! I can't believe that my sweet little red haired (it was bright red!) baby girl is already fourteen. We're having a birthday party for her tomorrow and she's so excited. This is the first year that she and Cami have had separate parties and they are enjoying it.

Happy Birthday, sweetie!!

Laundry Room Transformation!

Okay, I have to admit this is pretty embarrassing for me and I can't believe that I'm posting it, but I want to show that YES, it can be done! Between 4 kids, a husband, and 4 college classes, I managed to do this. I'm also posting this so that those of you who may have messy rooms know that it's OKAY and that it can be cleaned and taken care of.

The laundry room has always been the messiest room in the house and it got even worse when we moved. When we moved into the new place, I decided that I was going to wash every article of clothing that all six of us owned so that they would smell fresh and clean. It took me awhile, but I managed. are the results!

This is how it looked when I took the first picture. It was worse than this, but I had done a little clean up. I'm cringing in embarrassment, seriously.

Here is the in between picture. It's already looking better.

And, here is the finished product. I'm so happy with it! I want to add a few more things, like a cart with drawers to put supplies, but I'll do that later. That box is a storage box for cords, etc, and we have no room in the storage building for it, so I guess it stays in the laundry room for now. Doesn't it look 20x better, though???

Yes, I'm still blushing with embarrassment over my laundry room. However, it's been a couple of weeks and it still looks like it did in the pics, woohoo!

Have a great day!

Easter and Birthdays!

Easter is on its way! We are MOSTLY prepared around here. We're dying Easter eggs tonight and tomorrow we are having a party for Cami whose birthday is on Easter. She's excited and I'm stressed! I have a huge lecture exam tomorrow in one of my classes and I'm nervous. Also, my mom is going to be up here this weekend so I've been in a tizzy trying to get the house looking awesome. I think we've done a great job!

Sorry I haven't posted much lately; I've been busy with school. The applications for the nursing program were due yesterday April 1 and I filled one out for both the RN and LPN programs. I won't find out until the end of May/beginning of June.

Have a great Easter!!
