Where IS that table?

Hubby and I did some soul searching this weekend. It sort of happened by accident...but, it happened. We are going to 'take back our house'.
Before we had Monkey, our house was always decorated, projects were completed... there was no clutter. I LOVE... and I mean, LOVE to decorate. However, if you asked me today what style I decorate in... I would have to say--- Hotwheels, trains, dinosaurs and books.
We let Monkey take over the house.
Not just a few rooms.
The. Whole. Entire. House.
Anyway- just wanted to let you know that we are going to share our truth... even when it's ugly.
And of course, we can't totally blame Monkey for everything... like for instance what I am about to show you.
It's my fault.
All mine.
I take the blame.
Okay- I know we can't be the only house in America where this has happened...
See this?

Yes, its our table... oh, you don't see it?
Right... because it is under several loads of laundry.
Hey- score a point for me=== the laundry is done.
But, with all the running around we've been doing, the laundry has landed here.
I haven't seen the table for about a week.
It's true.
Oh, what's that? Yes... my missing bottle of Modge Podge. Guess that means I can finish up some of those 'projects' now!

There we go... much better.
I'll decorate the table for Christmas... oh, probably Christmas Eve!

Since I found my Modge Podge... I should start cracking on the gift for my MIL
... if only I could find my glass of wine.


I am hooking up with Susan for Met Monday!

  2. I love this post! Welcome to my world every day! Glad I'm not the only one and I love your transformation. =)

  3. Good luck finding the glass! I'm wondering how you managed to get rid of the laundry? Very cute post!

  4. Love it! The post, the realism, the project (so pretty!), and your blogs title picture.

    And yep, been there done that with the chaos!
    If you have never heard of it try to help you with the quest to gain control of the clutter and chaos. Her routines really do work. Living proof right here.

  5. Hey, I got my table cleaned off yesterday, and today...well, I can see about 1/3 of it. I decided that I live in my house and things just aren't going to look like I live in a magazine. Happy Christmas to you and your family.

  6. Hi, Amy,

    My home is currently taken over by moving boxes and power tools :(. I'm working on taking it back though!
