I don't where the time is going!!!!! It feels like it flies by.On Fridays I am usually cleaning the house .We have hair clients come over on Sat. so I really need to get this house together!!!! The kitchen is my main priority ( well actually the whole first floor). I just finished cleaning the kitchen and took some photos. It looks sparkly clean. I love when it looks like this!!!!!! My sinks are shiny and the floor is mopped.Now I am exhausted but have the dining room ,library room and living room to straighten up. Luckily I just need to wipe down the table and sweep and mop the floors. So I am taking a few minutes to rest and then it is back to work.

Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to everyone out there. I am posting this late because we have been soooo busy!!!!!! My Mother's Day was really nice .I woke up to a massage from my hubby and then we went shopping!!!!! I found a really cute(large) pink purse at Charming Charlie and a wallet. I also had been telling Trent that I found a beautiful antique silver punch bowl and tray at a store by our home.This store is only open on Thursdays,Fridays and Saturdays so I waited until today to pick it up. I kept praying no one would buy it before I could get there. I have been watching that it was still there for weeks!!! LOL So today I went to pick up my present!!!!! I only wish I would have found this before we had our vintage baby shower in Feb. but we will have it for the next party. It is also an heirloom piece I can pass on to the kids.On Mother's day we had a cook out and my daughter and her son came over. It was nice to spend her first Mother's day with us!!! Our family just keeps growing and getting bigger!!! I have been also working on the outside of our home planting flowers since we had a few warm days although it is back to being cool/cold.Hopefully it will warm up so I can finish planting.I have big plans to put flower beds along our fence.Here are some photos of my Mother'
s Day presents.

Project pantry update

We finally started the pantry.My hubby thought we needed to make sure that the ceiling wasn't leaking (since this is technically a covered porch) so he took out a board from the ceiling to see how it looked above.Originally he thought there was mold but luckily there wasn't any!!!!!! We haven't touched it since,we have been so busy every weekend going to Chicago to visit with my dad. He is doing great!!!!!! Every time I see him he is better and better.I also get to see some other family members like my sister while I am there and of course our son so that is always nice.It is really great to have family somewhat nearby.Since the baby was born our time has seemed limited (how did I ever get any thing done with 4 kids,lol!!!! )So we will work on this little but very important room when we can(somehow some men can't see the value in a pantry).I explain to my husband that the pantry will be life transforming!!!!! I will have room to organize our dishes or store the extra food ,I really need this!!!! So for now I am going to post more inspiration photos of the upcoming pantry.
