Inspired by Young House Love

Hope everyone has had a wonderful and relaxing weekend!
  I can't believe it is almost over, it always seems to go by too quickly!  I started a little project, well its actually a big project, this weekend that was inspired by Young House Love, but before I tell  you what it is, I thought I would share with you some pictures of our relaxing weekend.

This is my favorite photo of the weekend!
Saturday night we headed to my sister's to hang out, her husband is currently stationed in Saudi Arabia, and she was CrAvInG ( she is seven months pregnant ) Thanksgiving food!  She cooked us this HUGE dinner, she loves to cook and I was happy to oblige!  We had pretty much the whole deal, mashed potatoes, stuffing,  green beans, chicken  instead of turkey but just as delicious, as well as buttery crescent rolls!  I don't think I've eaten so much since last Thanksgiving!  I couldn't move I was so stuffed!
The above photo I snapped with my Iphone while we were all just hanging out watching a movie after dinner. My nephew, just needed some guy time and really loved just hanging out with Josh while we were over!
It made my heart melt!

Another Iphone picture, sorry about the quality, but he really wanted a picture of us!

This one I snapped today, Josh and I celebrated our four year anniversary this weekend.  He always does so much for me that we bought him his big tv this weekend!  He was very excited!
He did surprise me with flowers, wine, and a wonderful made by him spaghetti dinner!
I couldn't have asked for more!

Thats just a little snap shot into my life at the moment, now onto my Young House Love inspired Project!
Just to warn you this is not a crafty, or room makeover inspiration, but one that is very necessary to  have a beautiful  home.  A few days ago they posted about getting rid of things before they move into their new home, you can read about that here.  
That got me thinking about all the things I have been meaning to go through forever!  I keep telling myself I will get to it, and time keeps going by and it's all still here!  So my goal is to get rid of 100 things before Christmas!  Yup 100 things!  Either donate, craigslist, trash, or consign!
So far I've thrown away 12 scratched cds/dvds, cleared out an unused bookshelf, gone through a container of old oil paints ( discovered some watercolors in great condition ) trashed the beaten up old container with and all old supplies, and put an ad on craigslist for a tv we no longer need.  I have also decided to craigslist our couch and loveseat, we have been talking about getting a new one for ages, ours is a hand-me-down set that we have been using for the last few years!  I'll be doing that sometime this week!  Just need to get some pictures of them and hopefully we will be able to move them onto the craigslist, list! 
So there you have it, The Great Clean-out  has begun, and I've already finished over a tenth of my goal!  We are also both HUGE readers so thats is my next task, donating our used books, at least the ones we will never reread.   

What did you all do this weekend?  Anything exciting?  Any projects that you all are working on?

  1. Glad you had a wonderful weekend, even if it's a bit late!

    There's a pretty good book, Throw Out 50 Things (

    Those twelve cds/dvds you threw out? Only counts as ONE item though. It certainly ups the ante!


I'd love to know what you think! Thanks for reading!
