Random Wednesday #25 - Holy Crap! I'm Back :)

Man oh man! Time flies when you're not blogging. Or maybe...time just flies no matter what you're doing or not doing but you don't realize it until someone points out how much time has indeed gone by!

I know I said I'd be back on Monday, but Monday came and went with no posting, mostly because life happened. Mother's Day turned into quite the crazy day. I was planning this whole photo shoot with my mom to do a "what we wore" but that didn't pan out. 

I had a slight nervous breakdown. Whoopsie. 

Let's just say I'm not a big fan of change. With that being said...the fiance decided to start renovation on my closet Sunday morning at 7:30 am. All due to the fact that our evil little ginger kitty Penelope wouldn't stop scaling the garment closet I used for all my dresses/skirts. I was scared to death she'd jump off that giant thing and hurt herself! So...smash away is what he did. 

BUT we still had to go to lunch at my mom's house for Mother's Day and we were knee deep in drywall, projectile nails, and disaster. I won't go into detail about what exactly I did to give myself "nervous breakdown" status but let's just say...it wasn't pretty. Lots of yelling, crying, and some throwing of things. 

The good news is...

The stupid wall that was in the middle of the closet is gone!! (I forgot to close the door so you can't see all of the closet) 

But I can use my entire closet now without a giant garment closet to store all my dresses. There is obviously a lot left to do. A lot. But I'm trying not to stress about it and just enjoy the fact I can use the whole closet. I plan on having a bunch of pretty and fancy like curtains that act as my "doors"...I'm over doors. Bring on the curtains!


Also...this is the mound of clothing that I purged before I put everything back in the closet. Which turned out to be a huge help...as you can see in the closet photo it's pretty packed. So this giant mass of clothing is going to be donated!

I'll make sure to post progress photos but that won't be any time soon since the fiance is in school full time and works when he's not in school or doing homework. Needless to say...it'll be awhile before I have a pretty and finished closet. 

-----------------------------------------------------------

I was going to share my "review" photos of my first Birch Box order and my fourth installment of my monthly myglam box. But I think that would be excessive for one post. Maybe I'll do that tomorrow. So stop by tomorrow if you want to see the goodies and read my comparison between the two monthly curated goodie bags/boxes. 

Thanks for not abandoning my blog and giving up on me ever posting again! :)

  2. Who're you again? :P I kid, I kid. One strategy is to take all those clothes to a place like Buffalo Exchange or Plato's Closet (I recommend BE because they have slightly better pricing model, meaning you get more money) and use whatever money you get to further re-vamp your closet. You could also hold a blog sale, which got me quite a bit of money when I did it on my old blog!

    Sigh. I wish I could redo my closet, but there ain't no way of making that thing any bigger...

  3. I so wish I could renovate my closet - you're one lucky gal! And I can't get over how our ginger lady cats share the same name...

  4. I'm glad you knocked down that wall! Seriously, who thought it would be a good idea in the first place? The worst is over now, just take some deep breaths and enjoy all that space!

  5. Love your closet! It's gorgeous!!! I hear you on nervous breakdowns... that was me last Friday. They suck. But once they are over life is so much more beautiful! :)

  6. Oh I feel you on those breakdowns. I've been struggling to keep my head above water for a few days, and I can feel one is coming up. But breakdowns are my favorite excuse for chocolate cake, so there's always a silver lining.

    Also, is it creepy if I tell you I'm drooling over your closet organization? Because.... I'm definitely drooling over your closet organization.

  7. Hi, Jenna! It's great to be able to read you again! ;D And I think curtains will make your closet look even neater! Wow, that's a lot of clothes!

    And hey, don't give up on the outfit post with your mom! It'd make a really cute post ;D.

    Have a nice night!

  8. I. Am. So. Jealous of your closet!! I have, like, the smallest closet known to man - er, woman - and I'm so jealous of all you gals with great, big, giant lovely closets.

    That being sad, congrats on getting it all fixed up + organized! I find that keeping my clothes organized is one of the hardest things in my life. :-P

  9. I might have told you this before, but I used to have the same ridiculous wall limiting access to a big chunk of the closet. Such a great idea! It looks so nice & organized- I love that freshly cleaned feeling :)
