Late Night Guilty Pleasures!!

I don't know why I always get sucked into late night TV shows. Last night, I was soooo tired and needed to go to bed early.  Instead, I stayed up watching the show, Hoarders. was interesting to say the least. The woman on the show hadn't thrown away a single piece of trash in over a year. Her house was LITERALLY floor to ceiling of stuff and a TON of trash. Seriously, pizza boxes, food to go boxes, old to go cups...It was really sad. I don't understand how that happens. I can see holding on to sentimental things, but a pizza box? In any case, I couldn't stop watching. I kept staring at the clock and thinking how I needed to go to sleep, but NOPE. I watched the entire show.

I have the opposite problem. I am a freak about clutter. I don't save anything. I wish I was a little more sentimental. I mean, I save special baby clothes and artwork from the kids, but that's about it. I keep thinking I need to start saving cards I receive for special occasions, but what do I keep them in? A hat box or something...

ANYWAY, not only did I stay up way too late, I ended up having dreams of my house being infested with rodents and (scuse my grossness) BIG rodent poop....GROSS and DISGUSTING!!!!!

On a not so gross note, take a look at the latest photo I took of the blond one.

Seriously, is she adorable or what???

I am having a lot of fun editing my photos. This is another excuse I have been using to stay up late. Needles to say, I am tired and DRAGGING on this Monday. OH, and I have been assigned next Tuesday at 9:30 to officially register the Red Head in Kindergarten. I can't believe it. I have been told that once they start school the time even goes faster....How is that possible??? The time goes too fast as it is. I want to push the pause button or something. 

Well, if you have any great suggestions on how to keep cards and small sentimental things NEATLY tucked away, I would appreciate your suggestions!!!


  1. maybe you could start out with a small treasure chest. i keep a few items in my scrapbooks.

  2. Isn't it crazy how late parents will stay up? My husband and I laugh about that all the time. But it's our only time to ourselves/for the house to be quiet. Sometimes, it's worth the dragging. :)

  3. I wish I had advice. I could use some! I love your blog! So cute!

  4. I watch Hoarders too! With my mouth hanging open.

  5. Omg, I watch Hoarders! That show is such a train wreck!

    Your daughter's picture is amazing, you are doing a great job with your editing:)
