So my family lives in a nice 2 bedroom apartment right now and we have baby number 2 coming in March.  We know we can make it work for awhile since our apartment is a good size.  It is nice cause rent is low, we have a garage, we have big closets, and huge bathroom, and heat and water is included, a washer and dryer included.  So there are lots of advantages to living in this apartment.  I would have to stay that many times I wish we had a house, funny thing is we are homeowners but we are now landlords because we moved away from that city.

So the last few days hubby and I have been discussing how to organize the house to make it:
1. make room for the baby
2. get rid of the clutter
3. make the house easier to clean when everything has a place where it belongs.

This morning we headed out shopping and purchased three- 3 shelf bookcases.  2 bookcases were set up and placed in our big closet under the steps.  So we were able to take the 3 huge rubbermaid tubs out (which made it hard to use anything in them because you had to dig) and organize them into better smaller containers that you can see and place them on shelf.  Now you can walk in the closet and one bookshelf has all our electronic type things such as blank cds, chords, cameras, tools, etc etc.  The other bookcase has my sewing machine, knitting supplies, hair clip supplies, and Selah's outside toys.  Just organizing the closet was AWESOME!  :)  I did not take a picture of that but I did take a picture of the last book shelf, which is on our living room.  It is close to the door when you walk in so you can place the mail and keys in one of the baskets.  Then I imagine it will house other things such as books, baby toys, or any other baby thing.  It looks super cute and we found these baskets at the dollar store!  :) So here is a picture:

Yes I am nesting and I love it!  :)  Organization feels so awesome!!!  :)  I do have to mention that my hubby is the one who set all the baskets on the bookcase... he has the design eye!  LOL!!!  Love you babe!!


Good Luck with everything. We moved from a normal sized house into a smaller house because it had more land. It can be hard getting organized. I'm sure you guys will find lots of ways to do it!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
