-purged my office of boxes and boxes of old paperwork, magazines, work documents
-built a habit of keeping my kitchen 100% clean (it is much easier to clean a few dishes after every meal than three days of dishes)
-organized my prize collection of shoes/handbags and I can actually see them all at once
-kept up with my laundry by washing and... this part is key- PUTTING AWAY a load every other day or so
Kyle is on board with these changes and we made a deal that if I handle the dishes and laundry for the most part, he will keep the floors swept, trash emptied, and dinner and coffee tables cleared off and clean. This deal has been working pretty well for us for the most part with a few little growing pains along the way. But we seem to have come to an understanding we can both live with!
I picked this book at the beginning of the month that helped me get this whole project in motion!
It is called "Organize Now!" by Jennifer Ford Berry. It basically breaks down "getting organized" into weekly bite-sized projects that are TOTALLY manageable! This book has really helped me keep pushing forward on Mission: Simple & Organized by keeping me from getting overwhelmed or not knowing where to start. Another thing I love about it is that each project has little "To Do's" with check boxes by them. Ahhh I love marking things off my list and nothing feels better than checking that box!
In February I am focusing on decorating my house! And of course continuing to get organized!

I am so sorry. The only way I can help is through six degrees of separation from any one suffering directly in this crises. I will go to the Red Cross, help them, and by bearing a bit of their burden, I will help many in need. I will do this through time, treasure, and talent.
Heaven help us all.

I am still stoked about theses!
These babies were a major score at my local Nordstrom Rack. The ankle boot thing took a while to grow on me, but this pair seems like they will be a good basic for years to come!
Over the holidays I also picked up some really cute tights for a steal at Dillard's. Apparently they have a huge sale every year on the 1st where all of their clearance goes an additional 50% off. Thanks to Aunt Sherry for letting us in on this event that will be marked on my calendar every year from not on!
I also finally found the courage to purchase my first pair of skinny jeans. My cousin, Hannah, inspired me with a couple of cute pairs I saw her wearing over the holidays. She got hers at Urban Outfitters. My sister-in-law and mother-in-law were both rocking a pair they picked up at Charlotte Russe so I finally took the plunge! They actually come in "Long" there! Who knew?

Pres has learned the most important style rule early on: Confidence is the best accessory and you can pull off pretty much anything with the right attitude!
