 {Step 1}

 {Step 2}

After a long long long week at work I am ready for rest and relaxation.
Tonight we bought a bottle of wine and I do believe I won't worry about a thing.
While my love is on the couch watching Prince of Persia, I'm on the bed about to paint my nails and watch 'Sabrina'. {You know, the one with Audrey Hepburn....I just love that movie.}
Enjoy the beginning to a beautiful extended weekend.
A bientot!

Long time no see, right? I have been a little busy….please excuse my absence.
The week leading up to both graduations and the move were hectic and stressful. I was a mess and did not hesitate to show it. (I have since apologized to Adam for my random frantic outbursts.) 
 Congratulations to my brother, Josh, who graduated from MTSU with a degree in Music Business! I'm so proud of you Esh, I love you! He has worked very hard to get where he is today, I know he has a very big career ahead oh him. Josh Harvill will be a huge success…you read it here first!
 {Here is my dad, hubby and brother}

Followed by the ceremony was a fun grad party that his wife Amber threw for him. Decorations were so cute not to mention yummy food!
Sadly we couldn’t stay long because we had to head back to Memphis for Adam’s graduation the following day. In addition, a girl was going to buy our Washer/Dryer but ended up flaking out on us. Not cool Delia…or Celia…whatever your name was….not cool.

Sunday everyone arrived at our house to then chow down on good ole Memphis Bar-b-q at Central. It was Adam’s grandparents and Josh & Amber’s first time to eat there!
The graduation ceremony was quite exciting, I could not stop smiling at the amazing man I’m married to about to receive his J.D. What what! He’s just spectacular…maybe I’m a little biased!
{Everyone after the graduation}

Monday we spent moving all of our stuff. Every piece of our little life fit into just a couple of cars and a u-haul trailer.  It was a lot of work that helped us to decide we are getting movers from now on.
Seeing as I’ve spent too much time on the computer I’m going to spend the rest of the night on the couch watching movies.
I’ll talk to you soon, have a wonderful evening!

Oragnization & Life

The weather these past few days, or weeks rather, has been absolutely atrocious. Tornado warnings daily if not flash flood warnings as well. Our car has been giving us constant strife due to the rain and today I was stranded at the house waiting for our mechanic to help us out. This is the third time in two weeks that our car hasn't started and caused us to get it worked on. Not just jump started but full on take it to the shop or have it towed. 
I'm looking forward to the days when we have a vehicle that isn't as worn as this one. God will provide.
{Side note: We are thankful that both of us are healthy and safe. Our families are in good health, love us, not to mention we are blessed in so many other areas of life. This car thing is just an inconvenience.}

With that said, some might think that if you have no choice but to be at home your only option is to be productive. Most days that would be the case but when it is gloomy all day my energy plummets.
I was able to pack up most of our kitchen with just a few, and I mean few, items left to use.
Our guest room has become even more filled with boxes since I posted that photo over the weekend.
Infact we have a house guest tonight...Kevin! He lives over on the island and was told that due to the heavy rain fall it may flood so he's camping out in our "moving room".  I know Adam enjoys him being here...they're watching Conan during their study break right now. Cackles are coming from the living room as I type.

The reason why I wanted to write this blog in the first place was to express my obsession with organization. 
In the midst of this move our house seems to be anything but as most of our things are packed up. 
When I see pictures on blogs of how their closets are kept and magazines are filed I am filled with excitement to bring order back to our home. Granted it will be a couple of weeks but the fire's a burnin' within me!

Lately I've read a book called "The EveryGirl's Guide to Life" by Maria Menounos which has jump started this desire to organize my life. Such an easy read with helpful tools and wonderful information, you're sure to find a way to improve something!

It's time for bed so I'll talk to you soon,

In all of the blogs and news broadcasts, you can see the recap of the royal wedding. I too was one of the people who could care less prior to the ceremony. I thought there was just a bunch of hype but soon after watching and viewing the events to follow, I was intrigued. 

Kate was stunning! Her makeup was impeccable and her dress, elegant and refined.
{In addition, had you heard that she did her own makeup? I would love to hear of the beauty products she used.}

With all of the Kesha's and Lady Gaga’s  in this world, I'm glad to see a woman in the public spotlight be so classy. Granted, when you are about to be apart of the royal family I can assume that you would play it safe, but still!

I hope you have a beautiful Sunday evening and get rest for this next week.
Talk to you soon,
