Sweetie pie turns 6

Today Gavin turns 6! I can hardly believe it... I know that 6 is getting old but the number doesn't really bother me its what's on the inside that makes me think he is still young. Every year brings new experiences, worries and memories. Sweetie pie is just one of the hundred names I call him but when I ask him what mom's nick name is for him he says, Sweetie pie!

Thanks for telling me you love me more than the universe and telling me how beautiful I am when I am getting ready for work. I wonder what this year will bring and what milestones we will cross!

Happy Birthday to you, Gavin Eddie!

its a new year and i love the feeling of finding new ways to organize at home and work. while i was home from work i wanted to get my basement organized. i've been dreaming of having a shelving unit to put all my holiday (color coordinated with the holiday) bins on with easy access. i found this shelving unit at costco for $149.99 and it didn't take too long to put together. i still have about 3 more christmas bins that have the lights and ornaments that i put up with the christmas tree in the open crawl space. i loved the way this turned out!

soups on...

with all this cold weather i made two pots of soup yesterday. classic chicken noodle i found on pinterest and corn chowder (with potato) my friend shared with me. i like to make soup because it usually doesn't take that long and its not too much food for dinner.
