Messy, Messy, Messy!

It's taken me a few weeks to get the hang of iPhoto and in doing so, I've been digging up old photos from the last few months since my photos are now amazingly organized by "events" (dates) without me doing anything. I am totally convinced my computer is smarter than I am. (Especially because I just googled "smarter than me vs smarter than I.") Anyways, in sorting through my new folders, I came across this series of pictures of a Saturday afternoon at the end of June.

I had had 2 baby showers in May and then took off for about 5 weekends in a row of travel. It was lots of fun, but in the meantime I had schlepped everything baby to the back of the to do list.

Including organizing all my baby stuff. At one point, our bonus room looked the warehouse of Babies R Us. The room that was to become Bo's room was formerly our "catch all" closet - I had stashed everything from crafting supplies to off season dresses to holiday decorations. When Matt started working on Bo's closet, all of those were moved to the guest room. It was absolute baby clutter chaos taking over 2/3rds of our upstairs!

After all that travel and with the impending arrival of my mom coming to visit (and you know, needing to actually use the bed) I had to get cracking. Apparently, I also felt the need to document it.

Before: Messy, messy, messy!
{Bonus points to you if you said that in the "Frosty the Snowman" voice.}

After: The chaos is tamed, order is restored.

I love a dramatic before & after... especially when it's my own house. There's something about a clean room and made-up bed that makes me go "ahhhh...." I can't be the only weirdo out there who feels the need to document and relish in the simple act of restoring order to a messy room. (Right?)

Obviously, the work was exhausting for everyone involved... (including our two little canine houseguests, Ema & Watson!)

Me, me, me! Things like this make me happy, too! Good job, Megs. It looks great & yes - a clean, made bed is enough to brighten any day.

Internet high fives.
