Spring Cleaning...

I cleaned my patio area yesterday...
just before it rained.
I'm planning to cozy it up a bit!
It's amazing how the Colorado sun
 can deteriorate everything that once was.

All of my pots are cracked and crumbly...
even my ceramic birds.
My cushions are all faded and the paint on my rockers
has seriously faded and cracked.
(Natural Shabby Chic!)

I spent the rest of the day
cleaning, organizing, and redecorating my basement.

We have a finished basement
that holds my husband's office,
my so-called "creative studio"
(that resembles a small Michael's store),
and our "movie theatre".

For the longest time,
 there have been rubbermaids stacked
full of shop items, things to be painted,
out-of-season clothes, and who knows what else!
I finally got tired of looking at them
 and just trashed a bunch of things
 to haul off to the local Goodwill.

Now the entire basement
 is beginning to look cozy and relaxing again.
(I'll post photos when I'm finished!)

My husband took Bailey to the mall while I cleaned last night.
True to form...send a man to the mall and he buys man toys...
This time, he bought me a new

(I was still carrying around my little silver flip-phone...very simple, no frills.)
This phone will probably take me atleast a month to figure out!
 Sometimes technology is good,
 sometimes I just miss the old rotary phones!
Today I'm allowing myself to get excited about our
upcoming vacation!
37 Days until we leave for Tennessee.
If you follow my blog, you may recall me talking about
a place called Chickasaw.
We are going there to meet up with family at the end of June!
I've been going there every summer since I was a has my dad.
There are TONS of memories there!

On another note...
My husband has been waiting for months to hear about a new job opportunity
that would possibly take us back to the South.
They are apparently still in limbo with the position
and we are STILL waiting to see if our lives will change.
I'm REALLY wanting to move to Florida...
if not soon, then someday.
I hope you're all having a wonderful week!
We FINALLY have Spring weather here in Colorado!
The temps are in the 70's now!
I'm enjoying having the windows open and listening to the birds sing!


  1. I have that rotary phone in my kitchen... I love the conversations it strikes up :) have a great weekend.

    Smiles and Blessings,

  2. It sounds like life is very exciting for you at the moment, hope you get the good news soon! Can't wait to see your basement, I love finished basements. We don't really have them here in Australia..Rachaelxx
