The more things change, the more they stay the same...


Some days it it really reassuring to know you really, deep down, even after putting on a hundred pounds and changed in so many inperceptible ways, you really ARE the same nut job deep inside :)

Another "project" done... on organization!

I've been wanting to do something like this for a while now... that pantry just BUGS me with the lack of size and the lack of ways to organize the bottom.  I don't know that this is the permanent solution, HOWEVER, for now It's going to do just fine!!

Before, Chips and cereal on the bottom shelf along with other odds and ends ...
 As of this afternoon - Thanks to Angela for helping me get everything out, vacuuming and mopping... well, she didn't help mop, but she did get the vacuum for me and assisted with filling containers.
NOW to keep it this way - lunch boxes tucked at the bottom right, napkins and food storage bags above that and pop tarts (and oils at the back of that shelf) on the top...
On the left we have the top shelf filled with cereals, middle with bottled peaches, and some other items that are 'spares' as well as the bottom shelf with more 'spares' of things we tend to go through quickly!
Wish me luck on keeping it looking THIS nice.

Hoppy Easter.... (yes, I said hOppy!)

The Bunny went International this year... as she was on the road just prior to the holiday.  The camels are made from camels milk.  I have yet to try mine...
 however, LIZ loved hers! 
 The egg in the picture is from Amsterdam and contains dutch chocoate eggs in a multitude of flavors - to include pop rocks in one of them - fun, eh?

Angela had an "identical" basket - her slippers are on her feet already, so I didn't get a picture of them - they are white with designs on them...
 She and her friend Gracie just ate the camels head... poor camel!

Butch got a camel as well as a box of dutch chocolates as well... I think his camel is headless as well - we know where Angela gets it from :)  hahaha!
