Its Snowing but where is the Snowman?

So we finally got SNOW here in my little part of Tennessee! Very rarely do we see the white stuff but when we do the whole city/county shuts it down. hah! Seriously though...If you are from the north, then Im sure you are getting ready to make fun!!! When we get snow here the bread and milk flies off the shelves and you pretty much should avoid the grocery stores unless you like to be in one for several hours {me? not so much...Im in and out}. Anyways so we go snow but I was a bit disappointed this morning when realized that it was very "fine" snow....almost like dust. Yes, it covered the ground and roof tops but it pretty much melts as soon as you touch it. Most of the schools in our area and surrounding areas are closed today but take note of my drive in to work
Northerners....yall laughing now? Yes schools are closed and roads are clear. :) Thats how we like to do it here in the South!!



On to other news!! I know I mentioned last week that before the New Year I planned on getting organized....starting with my closet. Well I followed through! I spent quite some time organizing my closet and trust me I gave away so much that I felt guilty for having all that I do and I still complain about not having an outfit to wear. Now do not go into cardiac arrest with the pictures Im getting ready to show. I should be embarrassed but hey we are friends right? So Ill share my shame with you!! Now my closet wasnt this messy at first.....BUT I had to dig out everything so the "mad" piles you see are not exactly how I keep my closet but it was me trying to dig out clothes and start piles. Yall ready?!?!?



This picture does not do justice but I actually have a pretty BIG closet too!! So here is side one and below is side two....
I keep ALL my pants in the guest room closet so this is not even all the clothes I own/owned!! After several hours of digging, sorting and organizing I was left with this
3 HUGE bags stuffed completely!! I even had a few helpers on hand........
A lot of HELP huh?!?!!? Yep here are my helpers and this is not even after the work was finished.....this was the entire time. I gave up begging and just did it myself. They are pretty stinkin cute...You too Aaron!!
Happy Thursday and I hope everyone has a wonderful and blessed day!!

Haha! That's great! I am the same way! I always complain that I can't find anything to wear and my husband just looks at me like I'm crazy. His clothes take up about this [...] much space in the closet , and mine is more like [.......... ] ... we have a rather large closet as well... and I switch out winter/summer clothes between the guest closet. So there is always a full closet there as well.. hahaha!
Kudos for donating 3 bags though! Love it!!

Umm ya don't worry I did the exact same thing the week before New Years and (I didn't throw anything out) =) I couldn't I already did awhile back. And it's okay I have a shoe and dress room because my master closet doesn't have a long hanging section nor enough room for ALL my shoes!
