Good morning all!
I am beat! I will admit, cleaning is NOT my favorite thing to do! But we are getting things done. We took the girls down to look around the new city on Saturday. I really think they had a good time. We checked out where K would be swimming for the swim club down there. Found a great gym for L and went in to watch a little bit of practice. We drove them by the two schools I like and even found a great park for them to play in. Both girls have now said to me that they wish we could just move now. I couldn't agree more! Just get it over with!
Sunday morning was hard. Our church will definitely be the place I cry when we leave. We have so many good friends there. Some of them had heard rumors already because I had to make an announcement at our Children's Ministry meeting since I won't be heading up VBS this year. It was nice to get so much support and love from everyone.
As for the rest of the weekend we decluttered both the girls' rooms and then cleaned up so we could have friends over for Bible study last night. Since I don't have any projects to show you today, I thought I would share some of our progress instead.
This is L's room. There was no getting rid of ginormous Barbie house. :) We did clean it up a little and limited the number of Barbies to 4. Yes, there are WAY more than that. They are camping out in her very clean closet.
And I am proud to say that this is the Clutter Queen's room. She did an amazing job letting go of a lot of her stuff. I was worried about her. She is so sentimental and hates to part with anything but we did not have to "force" either of them to pack away anything. We did want to keep most of their favorite things because we don't know how long we will be here.
Here is our newly painted foyer. Pretty isn't it? I am so happy with how it turned out. Love this color. Without the glare, it is a gorgeous tan with the pop of white trim.
And then there is my craft room! Oh...my head hurts already! :)
Ok, so now I need your help. I don't watch a whole lot of television but when I do, I usually have HGTV on. I love watching shows like Design to Sell. One of the great things I have heard is to change out the knobs on your kitchen cabinets. So I found these great knobs at Lowes today. They match the gorgeous light fixtures that were in our kitchen when we moved.
These are the knobs that have been on the doors for 5 years.
These are the new ones.
Here is a picture of them from a distance. What do you think? I mean I REALLY want your opinion. Good or Bad. REALLY. Be honest with me.
OK, I am off to tackle my laundry room, linen closet and laundry room. Wish me luck!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a fabulous day!
