Friday Eats

If I didn’t have a full-time job and could spend hours practicing 

my photography skills I would be able to take amazing food pictures

like Jo Cooks does on her blog. I want to eat her food just because it’s looks that good!

Storage Cabinets

This isn’t really a resolution because I’ve been working on this before 2017

kicked off. I’m really making a bigger effort to simplify our home. 

I always considered my self a clean and organized person and

since becoming a parent I’ve been more organized then ever. 

All of Macklin’s toys, clothes, everything is organized and I know where I can find everything.

His stuff is so organized that my almost two year old is organized himself. I noticed it pretty early 

on that he was a clean freak but now even more so then ever. With that I want to simplify more things in our home.

That all starts with this HUGE catch call buffet:


A little story about this buffet. I got it for free at an estate sale before we moved into our home in 2012.

It is a great piece but very large. We only have stuff stored in it – mainly all our hats, gloves and winter scarfs.  

With that said – we are really only using it in the winter months. The rest of the drawers and doors literally 

have left over junk and random things in there. We will be donating the buffet soon to the local Habitat for Humanity store.

Did you know they will pick up your furniture for you? free of charge! (score) This thing is HEAVY!

Anyway – I still need a place to keep our winter stuff and maybe some other odd items.

I’ve been looking for a nice small and simply storage cabinet. 

I’m very open to the style color, etc. I just don’t quite know what I want just yet. 

Here are some that I found – what is your favorite?

Happy Monday! Today the sun is shiny and looks like

it will be another beautiful day. This weekend we were blessed with the best

weather possible for February! It was in the mid 60’s and sun all day. We took 

advantage of the weather and went to the Detroit Zoo with the kids. They had a 

blast and the animals were taking advantage of the weather too. 

when do little boys ever stop eating?

trying to steal Ella’s snacks!

these two!
