spring cleaning

So...I've been doing a little spring/summer cleaning. My sister and I are having a garage sale in a few weeks. Good motivation.

 I now have one cleaned out cabinet. Hello pretty white dishes. One cupboard down, many more messy and cluttered cabinets to go.

Now that I am getting a little more sleep and in full get-ready-for-garage-sale mode, I've started working on Griffin's room again. Gasp...I know. Maybe I'll actually finish it before he is one. Just maybe.

I am also finally ordering a Griffin print from Penny Paper Co. I've been putting it off hoping they would have another sale someday. If you have been wanting one of their cute prints now is the time to get one. It doesn't get any better than a buy 1 get 1 free sale! They didn't ask me to blog about that...I just like to share a good deal. :)

Let's hope I can keep up the motivation to get my house clean and organized (even though I know it will only stay that way for about five seconds)!

Keep up the good work. May has been a 'get organized' month. I'm pretty happy with the results!

So glad to know I'm not the only one who hasn't finished the nursery. I aimed to, but Lillie came 6 weeks early..then once she was here it's not like you have a whole lot of time for it! I am getting there too, though! Can't wait to see his room!

I have a question regarding your dinnerware. What kind is it? I have white dishes myself but I'm needing to purchase new since we've had few breaks and things. Do you mind sharing what kind you have? Thanks for blogging! Your blog is very inspiring and God centered!

Go, go, go!!! Look at you checking things off the list! Bye bye PB dishes, right? Love the white ones. Can't wait to see Griffin's room all done. The wall arrangement is looking great! Hope the garage sale goes well. I'm gearing up for ours in early June too. Ughhhhhh. I haven't quite found my motivation yet though :) haha.

Garage sales are so fun. I've never put one on, but love going to them :)

Your home is just lovely. I love when you post photos of it. White dishes are great, no? I love my IKEA ones that have lasted three moves and way longer than their $20 value!

I'm looking forward to when you post about Griffin's room.
