Happy National Doughnut (or Donut) Day y'all! I had heard tidbits here and there all week long that it was coming up, but it didn't really hit me until I drove through Dunkin Donuts this morning for my coffee and was told "you get a free doughnut today!" What a way to start out! I chose a French Crueller (or however you spell it). I LOVE them and as an added bonus, it was covered in chocolate. (Of course, Lisa, I didn't eat it....okay, I did, but it was just ONE!) :-)
In other news, today is the last day of my mom's visit. We haven't seen her since just before Christmas so it was a great week. Lallie got to spend several days, just the two of them, which is always fun for any grandparent. We will miss her too (my Daddy wasn't able to come this time). We are hoping to get to North Florida very soon to see them and their new house. They have completed tons of renovations to it and I can't wait to see the finished product. Maybe I'll be able to show you some before and after pictures.
Speaking of before and after....I've been thinking about starting a monthly series called $100 makeovers. I have several areas of my house that I'd love to makeover and I'm pretty sure I can complete each area for less than $100. It would start in July as June is a very busy month for us (i.e. family visits, Vacation Bible School, our annual trip to the Keys, yahoo!!!) And my first area would be my closet. It's a disaster!
Excuse my horrible attire! Husband and I were being silly and this was actually the best picture! You can see that my closet is horribly organized. Here you can see my stack of Sweet Valley High books in the bottom right corner, the two boxes in the top corner that I don't even KNOW what's in them (they've been there since we moved three years ago), a slew of bags on the floor, lampshades galore...and that's only this side of the closet!
My current favorite part of the closet has to be this shoebox with Denta Toothpicks, random headbands, a book that's been packaged and ready to mail to Ashleigh for over a year now, a jewelry organizer among other things. My jewelry box is a mess and I'm not even sure what's in the blue box. The best are the two pillows that need to be thrown out, stuffed into another box that has been sitting there since we moved (I think it has a ten year old Tivo system in it???)
Yeah, it's not good. I'll be collecting ideas over the next few weeks and then blogging about the transformation come July! I'm excited!
Who wants to do this with me and then link up?
Last but not least, a dress. Look how cute this dress is? I love it and it's only $63! Not a bad price for a dress! Get it HERE.
Happy Friday Y'all!
