So I told you all that I am dedicated to organizing my new house and keeping it clean and organized. This is actually working so far. I mean my house isn't completely unpacked, but it is getting there, and with every box we unpack there are more and more things that I get organized.

Moving is great. I should do it a lot because it really helped me de-clutter my life!
today, I'm going to share with you my favorite tips for organizing and storing your clothes!

I love Linda Koopersmith. She's great and I love that she folds things into little packages. I used this method to fold the Hubs undies too. Except that I didn't BUY drawer organizers, I made them from the billion cardboard boxes we have.

I also like to fold jeans like this chick did in this video.  But skip to 4:30 cause she is obnoxious and talks WAY too much.... Sorry Alejandra, lets get to the point!

There are lots of other methods I use. But one I can't figure out is how to fold a padded swimsuit.  I can't find anything on this, so friends.. How do you fold your swimsuits? one piece or two piece. without folding the padded cups inside one another (I hear that causes DBS - Dented Boob Syndrome--)

Let me know!

I know it's been a long time since I've posted.  I do have a good excuse though, We moved...

I know kinda lame, but it was hard work and we have spend a LOT of time unpacking, not to mention, also going to school, and working two jobs, it was tough, but totally worth it. We are still not completely unpacked, but we will get there eventually.

keys to the house!

We are also babysitting Max for my mom and dad because they are on their CRUISE! 

So life has been hectic. Mazee doesn't like sharing the attention.

Interview with a Bloggey

I read an awesome post on Pinterest for when you can't think of what to blog about, and I saw the idea to "Interview a Blogger" So I interviewed my favorite bloggy friend.  April Hansen from Hansen Love. Enjoy..

Q: Why did you start blogging
1.       To stay in touch with friends and family back home. Now it still has that but I really have also enjoyed making new friends and learning new things about myself through blogging.

5.       I met you ( Kayla May marie guterrez franchesco lilly anne Colby Woolsey) when we were in 6th grade through Jr. Templar Cheer! WHOO. One day when we were walking to practice after school we became bff’s then I started coming to play at your house, and throwing your kitty across the room (super kitty people! Not animal abuse) And we’ve pretty much been friends since.

Q: How did you know Jake was "THE ONE"
 2.       Well.. All off my other relationships I just felt like I had to work at it. I worried if they were going to text me, what they were doing, if they still liked me, if I had to dress up to impress them. From the very beginning when I met Jake I had just got back from zumba, WITH YOU! And I was sweaty and in sweats and an old t-shirt. And he still thought I was pretty and wanted to go out on a date with him. I just felt like everything was simple and easy from the very beginning then one day I it was like ‘BAM’! I could marry this guy. I started praying about it and got no other answer than yes J and I’m so happy I did! He’s seriously my best friend and my hero!
Q: What is your one regret in life?
 3.       One regret that I would probably have is not doing near as much in high school. Jake will tell me stories about all of the fun stuff him and his friends did. He lived in a small town as well so I just regret not going out and doing crazy wild things with my friends.
Q: Do you have a philosophy on life? If yes, what is it and why?
 4.       Trust in the Lord. Things will happen when they are supposed to. I thought that I was going to marry all of my past boyfriends, then I started to wonder when I was going to get married then tada! Along came Jake! My forever love. And then after we moved up here, I couldn’t find a job and got super depressed about it, then my job opened up and everything has just worked out perfectly. The Lord knows what He is doing. I put my full trust in Him with anything to do with mine and Jakes life!
Q: How did you meet me, and what would you say about our relationship?
5.       I met you ( Kayla May marie guterrez franchesco lilly anne Colby Woolsey) when we were in 6th grade through Jr. Templar Cheer! WHOO. One day when we were walking to practice after school we became bff’s then I started coming to play at your house, and throwing your kitty across the room (super kitty people! Not animal abuse) And we’ve pretty much been best friends since.

This was a way fun blog post! I love learning about people! Especially really great people ;) 

If you had a question for me what would it be?

Wishlist for 2013

My wishlist for 2013:

  • The Les Miserables DVD. So I can watch it EVERY SINGLE DAY!!!
  • This pantry door.  It's GORGEOUS, and would look SO great in my house!!
  • and last... but not least... I hope that by the end of 2013. I have either had, or am expecting a baby :) 
This is a tenative list, subject to change.. because I am a woman and I like to change my mind.  Keith promised he would buy me Les Mis. so anything after that is really just up to destiny... P.S. Les Mis comes out on the 22nd. I'm excited.  Please, listen to this song from the most wonderful musical in the history of the world.

So great... Love it. Everyone MUST buy this movie!  (and if you wanted to buy it for me, that'd be cool too)

Recalling Last Post....

Okay, in my last post, I was quite hard on the Harlem Shake... I would like to officially recall that post.

It is now the most amazing dance in the history of the universe....  WHY??

Let me show you..


I don't think I've ever told you guys this... but Supernatural is my all time FAVORITE TV show!

I love it..  It makes me sooo happy. 

So this made me change my whole opinion of the Harlem Shake... I love it now.

I bet Mischa (Cas) is the one in the neon yellow undies with matching leg warmers :) 

So awesome!

Enjoy! Happy Hump Day!

Harlem... who the hell gives a crap?

Okay.  So.. the harlem shake.  I'm over it.  It has HAD its 15 minutes of fame.  Now everyone stop talking about it.  It's not even that funny.  (or funny at all?)  Maybe I just don't get it.

But because I'm a true badger at heart. 

I had to post it.  I hate it.  But I'm a badger.  and I took a psychology class from Nick Marsing.  and he was the photographer at our wedding.  I am obligated. 

Enjoy the 1st and LAST Harlem (no one cares. It's a bunch of dancing weirdo's) Shake on AYNIL&A Dog. (new acronym ;) )

I'm Running Running and Running!!


I feel like I haven't had a moment to just sit and breathe for... like 3 weeks.  With all this packing stuff, and cleaning our house, and getting ready to get into our new house, and working 2 part-time jobs, (even though one of them feels full-time with part time pay) and going to school full-time and  homework and group projects and AH!!! I just feel like I could SCREAM!

So, with all that said.  Sorry I haven't been really bloggy lately.  Hopefully after we move into our new gorgeous house.  Thing will settle down a little and I will be able to get back on the train. 

Meanwhile.  Tell me a little about what you do when you feel stressed and overwhelmed.  Any tips for me?

This is my go to!

I don't know what I'd do without that silly mother of mine. I certainly love her!!!

She gets to go on a cruise in 19 days!!! I'm soo jealous I mean excited for her!!! :)

She's promised she will think of me, and bring me a souvineer.  I don't know what I'm going to do if I can't call her for 15 days.  Maybe explode? 

Any way.  HAPPY FRIDAY!!!
