Good Morning! I have been so inspired lately to get more organized, now you have to understand that I think I am a fairly organized person but there are always new things I am reading about and wanting to try! Where is the balance from things being livable and organized to there being an excessive system to everything? That is the journey I am on right now! Also there is just my husband and i so there is a small amount of stuff to keep organized but at the same time I want to start the habits and systems so that once we have kids life will not be totally turned upside down but we will already be in the habit of those things. I am trying to find fun ideas on a small budget or just using the things we have around our house. Its been a fun task and I still have lots more to learn though and things to improve. If I had it my way I would have a bin/file for everything but I want to also remember this is our house and try and not make it an office! =)

So I think I have become addicted to a show I got at the library, Dharma and Greg. Now if you have not seen it let me explain. I did not grow up watching TV and still watch very little and I am not a big movie person but I got this series at the library because it sounded fun. And it is! It is about a girl (Dharma) and her husband (Greg) who get married the day they met and then learn life together. She is a natural, hippie, flower child and he is a lawyer. I think maybe I like it cause I can identify with her some. I have been accused of being a little bit of a flower child before! It is just so funny to watch and is wholesome which is also something different for TV shows. Not to mention that it is great to watch it with no commercials! Yes I know you are probably thinking that I need to get a life and I don't totally disagree with you but until that happens I am enjoying myself!

I have several applications out for work and am praying something gets set in stone before I got home the end of this month for a visit. So talking about not having a life I need to get some things done around the house this morning.


  1. haha, I love your posts! :) Can you swing by my place and organize some things when you come back to Texas?? ;) It amazes me just how much stuff we have! I LIKE things organized, but I'm just not the best at doing it...But, since we've been married I've given BAGS of old stuff away...and we still have lots! (???) Or perhaps it seems like lots of stuff because its not organized....hmmmm. Anyway, fun post. Isn't it the best being married and having our own little place to fix up? I love being a wife!

  2. You need to check out! I've adopted many of her household systems and habits and it does not require a lot of money for organizational systems! I'm an organizing nut - my favorite store is The Container Store. :)

  3. You are too cute! I used to love watching D&G. I can see the hippie in you. :-)

    Cannot wait for you to be here! Praying for a job for you in the meantime.

    You are loved!

  4. Hi Hannah! A bunch of random comments :-D

    1) Yes, Sarah did tell me and I think I should be able to make it! :-)

    2) I've watched a couple episodes of Dharma and Greg - I loved it!

    3) I love organization. I love it so much that I'd be ecstatic if I could have extra supplies on hand in a storage closet like - spare rubbermaid bins, extra boxes of sharpies and post-its, etc - like a mini- Staples store in my own house ;-)

    4) Good luck with the job hunt. I've always got entrepreneurial ideas rolling around in my head though. So don't mind me if I give you a few ideas - feel free to throw them out the window :-D. If your gift is organization.. maybe you could come up with organization systems to sell, or write freelance articles on organization and sell your article to magazines, or become a home organization consultant! I know PLENTY of mom's who don't have enough time who might pay someone a flat fee to have them come in to their house, show them the fastest and most inexpensive way to organize their house, or kitchen, or closets, or bedrooms, etc. Maybe you could bring bins, files, boxes, etc to have on hand that are included in the consulting/help organizing fee :-)

    I just feel like there's nothing better than being your own boss. Especially so you can plan your own work around what schedule works best for your family (meaning your home when your husband is home, too!)

  5. So, we're TOTALLY taking it in August!! We're not sure where though...but join us!! It'll be so much fun! Yeah for big tests...
