New Year, New Closet

I have wanted to change our closet since we moved in but never was motivated or ready to take on that task.  I knew it would be time consuming, but I don' think I realized HOW time consuming.  Regardless, none the less, I have a new closet and I am in love.  I was watching Tidying Up with Marie Kondo and was inspired to finally re-do our closet.  So off to Home Depot we went and bought a closet kit we put together.  The final results are beyond perfect!



BEFORE - so much extra wasted space up top



Part of the process, is to put everything on top of the bed.  WOW we had way to much stuff.

AFTER - new corner units and I am obsessed


SHOES are organized and laid out nice

LOVE the drawers

Kinston is so cute, ya'll

We didn't have much planned this weekend, but I was looking forward to crossing off my list visiting places in Kinston, NC.  Our friends Rachel and Patrick recently moved there and bought their first home.

Friday: Started on our closet re-do.  We are in the process of taking out all of the wire racks and putting in white shelving and I am so excited.



Saturday: We took a day trip to Kinston and had drinks at Mother Earth Brewery, ate lunch at The Boiler Room and walked around.  We surprised Patrick for his birthday that Rachel put together.  It was a lot of fun.





Sunday: We all visited Melea as she is in a cast for the next 4 weeks.  Mom, John, Jamie, Keith and I all came over and cooked her dinner.  I think we lifted her spirits a little and hope these next 4 weeks fly by for her.




Happy New Year!

We rang in the new year with friends at a house party.  The older I get the less and less I am interested in going downtown to celebrate.  It was the perfect way to celebrate and ring in the new year!

Christmas Break

Since Christmas fell on a Tuesday this year, we had a nice long break and enjoyed every minutes of it.

Friday: Hamilton had his normal vet appointment for check up and we found out he had a ear infection.  We gave him all the snuggles and watched Christmas movies.

Saturday: We headed to my dad's house for breakfast and played outside with Hamilton.  He setup an axe throwing station and it was alot of fun to throw around.

Melea gave me new Kate Spade dishes and mug for Christmas
Sunday: CHRISTMAS EVE EVE - We all headed to dad's house for a lovely Christmas dinner.  He made puff balls for all of us and we all guessed it rather quickly so he is going to need to make them harder for next year.  We all went to church for morning service and then I made some sugar cookies in the afternoon.

Keith's Christmas Party

Keith's work had a department Christmas Party at 42nd Street Oyster Bar in Raleigh and I love any excuse to wear a new dress and head downtown. The weather was not ideal as it was raining and cold but it didn't rain on our parade.
