Weekend Recap!

Happy Wednesday!  Nothing like recapping the weekend in the middle of the week, right?  Well, I thought I would share what I was up to this weekend…

Remember when I said that my linen closet was out of control and in need of a reorganization?  Well, I spent my time cleaning, throwing, and organizing that baby!  Here was the (horrible!) before:

Seriously, very very scary!!

And now the after:

Ta-da!!  So after adding the tiles to the shelves like I did in our pantry, I used lots of baskets to organize.  Seriously what is better than an organized closet?!  Welll…..

...what about an organized closet with LABELS?!?!  Are you freaking out right now, cause I am!  Haha seriously this makes me a wild child, I know, but I’m just so excited with how organized this closet is!  I swear I was a professional organizer in a past life like AshLee from The Bachelor.  Who knew that was a profession?


And of course I had the help from this little guy

This is his confused-face of why I’m so excited for a clean linen closet!


Also, this weekend I went to Home Goods and found a thousand things I wanted.  I feel like Home Goods is such a hit-or-miss store, so imagine my excitement when I found a lot of stuff that I needed wanted!

I got new pillows for our living room!

I really think it brings out the blue in our picture that is above our couch.  I’m very happy with them!

I also went to our neighbor’s 3 year old birthday party and a bowling going-away party for a friend.  I sadly did not take any pictures at these events.  But, that is what I’ve been up to lately! 

Hope you had a great weekend!

Oh wow, your closet looks amazing. I seriously will NEVER be organized enough for labels. That is impressive.

I LOVE those pillows. I need to start doing some decorating around here. It just overwhelms me though and I really don't know where to start!

We were going to go bowling this weekend but the bowling alley was crazy crowded so we didn't get to. I haven't been in years.

Sounds like a pretty awesome weekend you had. Hope your week is just as great :)

I don't have a linen closet (yes I know) but I do have a closet full of camping gear and computer games. Please come clean it, and by "clean it" I mean throw everything away and don't tell my boyfriend.

Love the pillows you bought! The pattern is perfection!
