Weekend Project

Now that some special news has been tweeted, I can share my weekend project from last weekend.  I traveled up to my BFF’s house again, but this time we didn’t work on curtains.  We were decluttering!  When Lane called to ask for my help, I was envisioning closets spilling over with stuff, but was pleasantly surprised to find that the three closets she wanted to clean out were pretty bare except for a few bins and bags of stuff.  We pulled everything out, sorted them into keep, throw away, and donate piles.  Lane was hard-core about getting rid of stuff.

We finished in no time and ended up going through everything that had been gathering in her garage too.  (A good bit more cluttered than the closets)  In the end, her hubby’s SUV was stuffed to the gills with Goodwill donations and the garbage can had overflowed to the point that it looked like they must be moving out.

All of this due to nesting – yep, Lane is expecting!  She wants to feel ordered and ready for the new addition and I was thrilled to be a part of it.  We were able to consolodate their office into their bonus room that housed only a tv / video game console and ginormous bean bag, leaving the 3rd bedroom a clean and empty slate for a nursery!  When I left the only thing hanging out in the soon-to-be nursery was a lone picture frame Lane had received from family:

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
