Working, working, working :)

I actually accomplished quite a bit yesterday that was on my list--I took away the coffee table in my dining room--and put the pictures elseware, and I have to say it all looks so much better. Then I worked on my kitchen--that is still in progress---I also cleaned out the refrigerator, so it will be all nice and clean and more room for the new groceries that I will buy tomorrow--I will share my shopping list/day over the weekend when it is all complete. I also took out a white bed skirt and put it on--my bed looks lovely--what a difference a skirt makes. (Don't worry, I am not lifting or doing anything that will hurt the baby--I am slipping and sliding everything, and the heavy things my son and husband help with:) My daughter has quite a bit of toys so what I did was convert two toy boxes into one, and put the toy box in her closest--over the next week or so, we will go through the toys and seperate---broken, give away, keeper. If you have been reading my blog for awhile, you know what sparks my interest most with other blogs are the pictures---granted there are a lot of wonderful blogs out there that don't use pictures--but I am such a visiul person, kwim. I am more apt to try a recipe with a picture, then without kind of girl. SOOO, I snapped a few pictures to put here---this is another peek in to my home--this is the downstairs---I have already posted pictures of my kitchen, so now we have the living room, and the dining room.
This is a view from upstairs---> View from downstairs--yes that is Martha on the TV (giggles)
3 different views of my dining room--there is a red underlay under my table cloth for Valentines.
As you can see I put decails on my windows for valentine's.
In the little red heart container on my table is filled with candy hearts.

The rooms that I have not shown yet that are downstairs are the guest bathroom, my laundry room and of course the garage.

Okay--I am having too much fun posting, but I must go---I have dinner to prep, a kitchen to organize a few loads of laundry to conquer, etc---You all have a glorious Thursday!!! I will be by to visit your blog soon--> You all know who you are xoxo

You did quite a bit yesterday...I go through my daughter's toys at least once a month and reorganize everything. She is getting old enough to help too. It's funny to see them enjoy cleaning at that age.
