Caution: Photo Overload

26 Aug

I was looking at my blog for a brief second today and noticed something. It looks so…boring. I really have no pictures and snooping into another person’s life is so much more fulfilling when pictures are added. Get ready for a picture explosion from the last few days of my life! You’re welcome.

This is my mess of a craft area. We were busy bees tagging away last week for the sale. I think we sold about 70 of our 75 items. Totally worth the work. We usually have a lot more, but I guess we have done a good job this year donating things.

We didn’t even have an insane amount of clothes like we did last year. I think we finally realized our kids don’t need a new outfit for each day of the year. Ha!

And then we tackled the mountain of books that took over our garage. 202 books and 100lbs later they were shipped off to Amazon for an eventual profit of almost $6,000

And they were worth every excruciating hour they took to enter. I despise entering books. I have gotten lazy with my barcode scanner that takes two seconds when I enter toys.

Saturday we decided to move our ginormous Expedit from the living room to my sons room. Sooo not a fun experience. We ended up having to take it completely apart because it wouldn’t fit up the stairs. Super happy the main floor of the house is now completely toy free though. A busted thumb, a nearly broken foot and some bickering later it found a new home.

I had to take pictures of his room when it was clean to prove that, at one point it was clean. Nikkos has actually done a really good job keeping it clean the past couple of days. A pleasant surprise.

The day he decides he is too old for a Mickey Mouse room is the day I cry myself to sleep. Also, Tom painted the owl picture. My hubby is so artsy 🙂

And Pinterest was my friend when I decided to make the “N” out of buttons.

There will be an entire post about this bad boy when I upload the “before” pictures off Tom’s phone. This is our first refurbishing project and I adore it. It isn’t finished, but this weekend we still decided to put our Fire King collection on it. Yes, one of the pictures in the frame is missing. I used it for a project for my MIL and haven’t replaced it yet. Shame on me!

The hutch has 1950’s farmhouse written all over it

Call me a nerd, but this drawer is the crown jewel of the hutch in my humble opinion.

And this excitement is what consumed a good few hours of today. I cleaned about 100 coffee mugs by hand that I will list on eBay this week

My hands are literally still pruned from washing all of them

And I am admittedly still cranky from removing 100 irritating price stickers

This one is my favorite mug. I may keep it. Laurel Burch is amazing.

I have decided that in my next life I want to be a Jamaican cat. After watching the Olympics I decided Jamaicans have way more fun than anyone else and cats get to do this all day. By the way, this is Helga…who is a boy. Thats what happens when you let a four year old name a cat.

This is a welcome scene after a nail polish fiasco that left me cleaning nail polish off carpet and Ariahna crying in timeout. More often than not this is how you will find her. Surrounded by books. I love it.

And Nikkos decided to read too. It was an amazing ending to a hectic few days.

My goal is to include more pictures in my blog from now on. Likely not 500 pictures, but certainly more than zero. Feel free to tell me how exciting my life is. Hehe.
