Weekend Project

I wish I had something cute to show you that I did this weekend, but in all reality, this was one of those weekends that I felt like sooo much was accomplished!

Justin and I went through our storage in an effort to organize everything and to use things since we now plan on staying here longer than what we originally thought. Once we pulled all of our stuff out, we decided it was high time to organize pretty much the entire basement! Now if you have seen our basement, you know that my mom has storage in several rooms down here, which is understandable when no one is living here. It definitely wasn't easy, but after several trips to DI and the trash, we now have an organized basement! Wahoo!

A big big thank you to Justin, his dad and brother Scott for all of their help on Saturday. There is NO WAY we could have done all of this without you! They even sacrificed playing golf to do this--if you know them, you know that is huge!! Justin's parents have the most organized house of anyone I know, so when Val came down and had some "spare time" before the football game (the reason he came), we couldn't resist asking for his expert help!

I'm really bummed I didn't take a before picture because it's hard for you to see how really amazing this now looks! We couldn't believe that all of my mom's stuff plus all of ours fits in this room now! Before there were boxes stacked everywhere and there was barely room to fit through. We also managed to make Molly's so called room really look like a room now! It feels so nice.

WOO!! It looks so so great :) I definitely have seen the before.

Molly's room will soon look like a bedroom even more when I take those couches. Now I just need to find someone with a truck to borrow...
