Spring Cleaning

One of the drawbacks of living in an older house is not having any closet space. I filled the closets in my bedroom and office very quickly so I had to build a makeshift closet in the basement. So today I got tired of trying to shove more stuff in the closet so I decided to do a little spring cleaning. I filled 5 garbage bags full of clothes to take to the consignment store. Anything I hadn't worn in the past year I got rid of. Now I can actually shut the doors on all my closets. The bad thing is now I want to go shopping for new stuff. So I am off to the mall now..

Patio Furniture

I went into Home Depot a couple of weeks ago to get a light fixture and what did I end up finding... Brand new patio furniture. I saw it and I thought it was perfect for my backyard. I am so excited it got delivered today and of course I had to get it out of the box and put it all together today. I felt like a child on Christmas morning. It's funny how you get older things like patio furniture are exciting. This is a picture of the furniture I bought..

So now that I have furniture I have a new project to do this weekend... Build a deck for the furniture.. My parents are coming and we are going to try and knock it out this weekend.. Wish me luck

I could get used to this

Being a flight attendant sometimes you know where you're going and sometimes you don't. I was on call this weekend and I got an awesome trip to sunny Fort Lauderdale. I was so excited because the hotel that we stay at is right on the beach. I got to spend the day laying in the sun and walking on the beach. It was so nice just to have the sun on my face and be in 70 degree weather. Needless to say I don't want to leave and go back to Chicago tonight but I do get to go home tomorrow morning so thats a plus. Here is a picture of where I spent my day. I hope I get a trip like this next week when I go back to work because I could sure get used to this.
