Closet Cleanup!!!

Cleanup! I hate cleaning but I do love a clean and organized house, but sadly I struggle in keeping my home clean and organized.  One of my major problems is my closet.  I'll spend a whole day cleaning and after a few days its back to looking like my closet and drawers exploded!

So, one of my goals this year is to cleaning up and organizing every room in this house.....and keep it clean and organized!  I decided to start with my closet.  It was a disaster, but since its the smallest room and where I store the bulk of my things, I thought it be the best room to start!

Here is the before - a true disaster, I don't even know how I was able to walk in here and get dressed every morning:


Yea  - it was a mess - nothing was where it should be and I had piles & piles of stuff! Clothes, bags, shoes and just stuff all piled all over each other!

I took one day on the weekend and started early.  I took everthing out and dumped it on my bed - this helped me sort through everything.
Little by little I started bringing things back into the room.  It was a long process and by the end of the day I was exhausted but I was very happy that I got it done!

Here is what it looked like after I was done:





I do everything in this room - get dressed, do my hair & make up.  Aside from all my husband's and my clothing, shoes, jewelry and makeup, I also store my handbags, bed linens, books, extra toiletries and travel stuff in here.  This was actually an extra bed room that I used to use as an office but then decided that I needed a closet more than an office...so voila!! A closet it is.

As long as I keep it clean and organized its a great closet/dressing room - I love it!!

I only hope that the day we move, we find a place with an extra room that I can convert to a closet like this - or better!

Would love to hear from you - do you keep your closets neat & organized?  Is it hard to maintain it organized?

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.














After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.


Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
