Thank you Mr. King for being famous and allowing us to have the day off! Because of the weather Joey ended up being home yesterday too! And today. And tomorrow! Lucky (in the voice of Napoleon)!
So yesterday Joey and I totally took advantage of the childcare that we had to pay for if we used it or not! WE had our first (since Jax has been born) Day Date! A day date is a great and inexpensive way to spend time together! Here is a picture of my date:
Such a cutie! We went to Target, Best Buy, Barnes and Noble (my fav), and then Steak & Ale for lunch (so much cheaper than dinner)! After about 3 hours we were feeling guilty and missed Jax so we picked him up just in time for a nap at home.
While he was napping, I finished a VERY over-due project! It was so bad it had to be done in two phases…WAY too much for one day! I really can’t believe I’m going to post pictures of my most troubled area in the house…but here goes!
MY CLOSET BEFORE
MY CLOSET AFTER (YES THERE ACTUALLY WAS A FLOOR UNDER THERE)!
JAX HELPING ME OUT
THIS IS THE STACK OF JEANS THAT I CAN NO LONGER WEAR (BUT HOPE TO AGAIN SOON)
THIS IS THE STACK THAT FIT ME NOW
HOW’S THAT FOR DEPRESSING??
THIS IS THE GOAL PAIR! THESE SIZE 4 BABIES WERE MY FAV JEANS WHEN I GOT PREGNANT, I EVEN WORE THEM FOR A FEW MONTHS WHILE I WAS PREGNANT…AND IN CASE YOU’RE WONDERING..I’VE WORN THEM SINCE JAX WAS BORN…BUT CAN’T WEAR THEM NOW! I DON’T CARE ABOUT THE SIZE…IT’S JUST THAT I WANT TO WEAR THESE AGAIN! I WILL WEAR THESE AGAIN!
THIS IS THE GIVE AWAY PILE
TRANSLATED INTO THIS (HAS ALREADY BEEN DROPPED OFF, BY THE WAY)
**I MUST SAY THAT GETTING READY FOR WORK THIS MORNING WAS MUCH MORE ENJOYABLE AND LESS STRESSFUL! IF YOU HAVE A MESSY CLOSET, I HIGHLY SUGGEST CLEANING IT OUT!
THE SOLID ICE THAT STILL HAS THE KIDS (AND THEIR PRINCIPAL) OUT OF SCHOOL
MY SWEET BOYS WATCHING VEGGIE TALES
MY TREAT FROM YESTERDAY
If you haven’t checked out this magazine… you should! Although RR is quite annoying on tv, she does have some great recipes…especially for kids(honey nut chicken nuggets!yum!)…get it next time you’re at target!
Ok, I’m done! This post took WAY too long! I hope you were amused! Please comment to make me feel good about my accomplishments! ha!!
Have a great Wednesday!

Oh my goodness Suzanne! It is AMAZING how nice & clean your closet looks after you worked SO hard! The floor is BEAUTIFUL and all of your organizer boxes & shelves are INCREDIBLE! You are SUPER WOMAN! Can you come clean my house? I really can learn from you…what an accomplishment! You should print those pictures of your clean closet and hang them in there so IF things start to go downhill you can remember this GREAT day and your HUGE accomplishment!! Way to go! The closet looks great!!(how’s that for making you feel good? sorry, I’m such a geek, but I couldn’t resist!!)Oh and that is a HUGE stack of jeans just waiting to be worn by you — I’m sure it won’t be long now. You can DO IT!!!
WOW! Your closet is an amazing transformation!!! You own a ton of jeans! Don’t worry…there’s only a few pair I can wear right now too. I’m not sure I’ll ever fit into some of them again b/c of my hips getting wider! lolAs for Rachel Ray…I call her Mike’s girlfriend! lol. He loves to cook and since we don’t have cable that’s the only cooking show he sees. He actually ordered “me” (yeah right) the magazine for Christmas! I love it! 🙂
Amber & Staci, Thank you so much for the compliments!!!! Amber…I’m a geek too!Staci, that’s funny that mike got “you” the magazine!!
You’re the inspiration….I am singing that, just so you know. That is an AMAZING transformation and accomplishment! I feel like that is the state of my entire bedroom. I get so overwhelmed that I just haven’t done anything. But because of you I am actually going to start organizing the bedroom…and Logan’s drawers…they are like that too. You are amazing!I have almost picked that magazine up like 5 times, but I always refrain. But I think the next time I will get it! It looks great!
Can you come clean my closet, please? Looks great. Glad you got to spend some time together.
I sooo need to clean out my closet! Yours turned out great. I think my floor looks just like yours did too. 😉 Oh goodie the new RR mag is in stores. I checked last week when I went shopping and it wasn’t out. Now I know 😉
Great job!!! I did that last week. My closet was a mess, and you are so right. It sure does make getting ready in the mornings much easier and enjoyable. I’m very proud of you.JB
THe closet looks great. You know, I’ve found the best way to clean out your stuff is to move!!! It worked for me anyway. What I really want to know is, What the heck is Joey leaning his head on in the Veggi Tales pictures?!? That looks TOTALLY uncomfortable!!!
WOWZO!!! I have NEVER seen your closet that clean! GOOD JOB!!!!!!!!!That has been a constant struggle for you over the years!:)Try hard every night before bed, or every morning to pick it up, to keep it clean! (it is hard!) 🙂 LOve you.. proud of you! Do you get new clothes now that you got rid of so many????
Hey Suzy – Your closet looks awesome. I wish I had time to organize mine. Maybe you could come over and help me. HaHaHa!Cute pic of Joey! At first glance, it looks like Brian.
wow it looks great.. I so need to do some organizing its not even funny… lol Loved the pictures!
I took the nanny off of my blog, so you can read it now. It was more trouble than it was worth, and I took my last name off of it, so that should be good enough.
SUZANNE,WHO’S CLOSET DID YOU REALLY TAKE PICS OF? YOUR CLOSET AT HOME SURE WAS NOT LIKE THAT. I AM PROUD OF YOU, NOW NEXT TIME YOU ARE HOME, WILL YOU HELP MOM CLEAN HER CLOSETS OUT? REALLY, YOU DID CLEAN YOUR CLOSETS OUT ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAD NOMORE ROOM FOR NEW CLOTHES, EVEN THOUGH THERE WAS NO BEDROOM DOOR EVERY NOW AND THEN, YOU DID MANAGE TO KNOW WHERE EVERYTHING WAS! I AM PROUD OF YOU, AND I KNOW JOEY IS, JAXON HAD FUN, AND NOW IT IS ALL DONE, HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, AND BE CAREFUL ON THE ICE. LOVE MOM
