Good Morning Xangaland!


I’m actually really excited about today.  I’m going out with my mom to do some shopping and make some lists.  Ryan and I have a goal…. By December 31 our yard, house, finances, and lives will be in as close to perfect order as we can get it.  Reason?  Because then we get to start trying to have a baby and it will never be in order again!  Is it really ever? Well especially not after you have kids! LOL.  So we thought we’d get everything we wanted to get done, done now so that we can focus on a family!  So here is our project list that mom and I will be shopping around for….



  1. Clean out closets and reorganize
  2. Clean out sheds and garage
  3. Clean out dressers
  4. Donate cloths
  5. Reorganize laundry room and pantry
  6. Move Christmas decorations to the attic
  7. Refinish antique buffet
  8. Paint nursery (guest bedroom)
  9. Paint guest bathroom
  10. Paint office
  11. Re tile both bathroom countertops
  12. Refinish antique dresser for nursery

Then we are selling some of our old furniture and replacing it with space saving stuff.  Like in our bedroom we have a highboy dresser and an entertainment center.  So we are going to buy a TV armoire to combine it.  We are going to replace our nightstands too because everything was a matching set:  Nightstands, highboy, and long dresser with mirror which I’m using as a buffet.  My in laws have already decided they want the set and are paying us $350.00 for them! 


So basically it’s a lot of little projects to get the house finished.  It should be fun…  So mom and I are going to go to Home Depot and some consignment places and just basically help me get a game plan together for the next few months and write up a supply list. 


I’m going to try to get around to all of you but I have to get ready soon!


Song of the day? I Want To Break Free by Queen simply for the reason that this song is one of my all time favorites! I know every word, every beat, and every note in this song.  When it comes on I have to just lip sing and dance until it’s over.  It is one of the few songs that just make me lose my self, my stress, my worries….  My husband thinks I’m nuts.  He says if I would do it just once when he had a camera he would make a ton of money!  LOL  See you all later I’m gonna go break free….

  2. That’s a good plan, getting everything ready before you start your family. I wish we had done something like that, but sometimes life surprizes you! Not that I’d trade my baby girl for anything, but still, it would be nice to have the credit card paid off before she comes! Good luck with getting everything together, I’m sure it will look georgeous when you are done, everything you do turns out beautiful! -Michelle

  3. Excellant song choice for the previous post. I love that sond and it definantly fit the story. You were treated so poorly. It amazes me that some people  are like that when they should do everything they can to keep your bussiness.
    Ryan really needs to get a picture of that and post it so we can all see. Have a great day.

  4. wow.. good luck with everything… sounds like a lot of fun.
    (I have never been to the cheesecake factory at 83rd and Bell and now I don’t plan to.. we went to the one in Scottsdale.. the employees were ok but not as friendly as other places and we found that the cheesecake at PF Changs was much bigger than it was there)
