an update

I've been neglecting the blog like crazy!  Let me fill you in on what's up :-)

Last week I spent my days rearranging and cleaning my 'back room'.  For those of you who don't know what my 'back room' is, it's an addition to the main part of our house, where for the past several years, we've used it as a storage room/bedroom/office space/storage room/toy room.  And it was a HUGE mess. Oh, and I had emptied out a storage unit and had to find a homes for all of that stuff as well as find homes for the things that were already in the back.  Talk about a huge job!  And I'm not finished yet!  But it looks so much better and I feel so much better knowing I don't have to walk through a maze of toys, furniture, books, and bins to get to the laundry room.

This is a before shot of the back room:

I'm not finished yet, so as soon as I am, I'll post an After shot!

Is everyone enjoying the cooler weather?  I can't tell you how much I love it.  The kids and I had breakfast on the newly rearranged deck this morning; Henry requested pancakes with syrup on top and jelly.  I skipped the syrup and jelly and went with apple butter :-)

My session on Saturday morning was fun :-)  I always like hanging out with pregnant couples!  A sneaky for Megan and Justin:

Except for today, the rest of my week will go to rearrange the rest of the house.  A friend of mine came over yesterday and gave me some suggestions on how to stage my house for an open house :-)  Pics to come (hopefully)!

Friday's session was with Jenna, Mack & Heston - we had a good time hanging out in the wonderful, wonderful weather. A cute shot of the family:

I promise to try and post something more often!  Stay tuned for a Five on Friday :-)
