Cleaning a Kitchen Cupboard

So I took the Money Saving Mom's Organized Home Assignment today and tackled a cupboard in my kitchen.  Luckily, I have enough cupboards that this one is sort of my miscellaneous cupboard.  Unfortunately, it is normally the place where "junk" accumulates.  When I need to clean my counters, yep this is where the stuff often piles up!  Here is the before picture:

Yikes!  What a mess!  This is the what it looks like now, nice and clean!

I should really get rid of the margarita glasses since we have not used them BK (before kids), but I am not ready to part with them yet.  Plus I need to keep the sippy cup collection for baby #3 (which I think is helping me clean and nest) on the way.  I keep opening it up to admire, look how nice it is, I wonder how long I can keep it that way!

Cleaning Out the Junk Drawer

I think we all have one, a Junk Drawer!   Ours is in the kitchen and the sad part was, I was running out of space in my junk drawer to put more junk!  So I for some reason everyone in my house was up at 7 am this morning.  A few of them forgot to get the memo, that said "It is Saturday"!  Once kids are up, I cannot sleep anymore.  I also had some motivation to clean (early nesting??), so I tackled the junk drawer.  This is the before picture:

Now this is the after:

Much better!  Believe it or not I pulled all of these toys our of this drawer including 4 (yes FOUR) old cell phones!

So I guess my Earth Day project is to find where I can recycle old cell phones!

Happy Birthday to My Honey!

Today my husband turns 35th!  Its hard to believe we met when he was 18 and I was only 17.  It certainly does not feel like we have known each other for 17 years, been married for 9 1/2 years, have two children who are 6 and 3 and another one on the way.  Time sure flies when you are spending your life with the love of your life and your best friend!

He is the most amazing husband and father.  He always puts his wife and family first!  He will stop at nothing to make sure we are happy and living life to the fullest!

Happy 35th Birthday!
