Happy Weekend and Happy Mother’s Day! My husband and I are gearing up for a couple of big home improvement/organization projects this week that I am SUPER excited about! The awesome folks from ClosetMaid will be helping us finally get our disastrous garage in order, as well as redesigning my bedroom closet. They will be filming the whole process, which will be interesting, but I can’t wait to see how it all turns out! (Be sure to follow me on Instagram if you want to see updates throughout the week!)

But now on to the good stuff…..here is what I loved this week:
