~A Snapshot Of Our Week~

Here is a photo of Lauren, Megan and Justin on their first day of school!  It was Megan's first day of junior high.
I helped the girls organize their lockers this year.  I watched you tube videos on how to organize a locker.  I think they turned out nice.

Speaking of getting organized, I have been organizing all our drawers and cabinets.  The top photo is our kitchen junk drawer.   The bottom photo is under our bathroom sink.  I should have taken before and after photos, but I didn't think about it.  
 This is where I keep my downstairs Christmas tree and decorations.
In the other little nook in our basement I have two bends to keep some items for the apartments that my husband owns, such as leases and keys and things such as that.  I am helping him to run them, mainly doing office type things and if he gets the large complex he is thinking about, I will be answering phones.
Last week, we got egress windows for Lauren and Megan's rooms!  After they were put in my husband had to finish off the inside walls, and then we had to paint.  
Here is Megan at Lowes picking out a paint color.  Both Lauren and Megan chose similar colors.  Kind of a cafe mocha shade.  I would have never thought to choose those shades, but they look awesome!

Here is Megan's finished room.  She wanted a more mature looking room than when it was the purple shade, and I think it looks darling.
Here is Lauren's room.  The door in this photo leads to what is now our workout room, but we are having it made into a full bathroom for Lauren.
The girls had their picture day and I couldn't resist snapping a photo of them in their pretty dresses.  The other girl in the photo is Megan's friend Noelia.  

Megan took my camera and took a couple of selfies.  What a cutie pie!  
This is what I've been melting the last couple of weeks.  It's called Pink Velvet and it's from Walmart.  I really love this scent.  It is light and very yummy smelling, but not overly sweet like some of them.  I love it.
I've been doing my normal things such as laundry taking the children to all sorts of practices and such and meal planning and cooking.  I got to talk to my wonderful sister Tricia this week.  It had been way too long since we spoke.  I told her I'm going to call her at least once a month so we can keep in better touch.  I sure miss living close to my family.  That is pretty much a snap shot of our weeks.  Hope you all have a great weekend!
