Ok, so I have a confession to make. Yesterday I wasn't feeling great so I thought it would be a fabulous idea to sit on the computer for the entire day (minus the hour long trip to Marshall's & Target). I felt like a drug addict yesterday. I absolutely could not stop looking at a couple of blogs I found. One would think I was looking at baby blogs and different fabulous baby things online. Oh no. That was not the case.....at all!
Oh my gosh!!! I literally spent ALL day on those cool kids' blogs! It was like a trainwreck. I just couldn't take my eyes off of them! So, needless to say.....I got inspired. I am not nearly as creative or resourceful or motivated as those people are but I got myself off to a nice little start.
I started last night by wanting to do an "overhaul" of sorts on the office area in the eat-in kitchen (thanks to the inspiration at IHeartOrganizing!). I haven't been satisfied with it since we've moved in. I want it to be a useful area, but not cluttered and junky since it is in a common area in the house. So, I took a little bit of inspiration from my fellow bloggers and this is what I came up with:
Before (actually in mid clean up):
I love the new little mail caddy. I took that inspiration from one of the blogs. I also decided to move the printer back down because, well.....I need it! It was upstairs in the bedroom and it just wasn't functional there. I also added a calendar which we have been needing! Scott and I are always on the go and we have lots of places to be so keeping it all in check on the calendar will be nice. I also am really digging the little corner with the lamp. It has a picture of Baby Waller in the frame and that hydrangea came straight out of my backyard! Super!
If you have a minute, I highly suggest you take a look at the blogs I mentioned above! They are pretty fantastic and I'm sure you'll find some great ideas too!
I'm off to be domestic now. Lasagna is on the menu tonight!
