Moving Moving Purging Moving!

2 Jul

Hey everyone! In the process of moving – this girl is PURGING! It seems like every box I open  I get rid of almost half of it (except my clothes 😉 haha!)

This week it was CD’s, DVD’s, & Video Games. Granted I don’t own many video games because they are mostly Brian’s,  I do have a few that I will be passing down to Emma Beans and other’s I’m downright ready to get rid of.


001

We have a collection of DVDs and if I hadn’t taken out Emma’s DVD’s, we wouldn’t have any space in this sucker!

002

Brian’s Video Games drawers. I’m pretty sure he has more than this hiding somewhere 😛

003

Oh wait – yes that is more video games 🙂

I didn’t even take a picture of our CD’s – They are still in boxes..

So while I’m purging all of this with Brian, I was introduced to Music Magpie.

It’s an online company that literally buys your old CDs, DVDs, and Games from you. It takes the hassle away from yard selling, trading them in at Game Stop, or selling them on Amazon or Ebay.

I created a free account, typed in the barcode info and it immediately gave me a price for my items. I haven’t even done a quarter of our things and we’ve already almost hit $100 dollars!!! My mouth dropped when I saw this!

Best part of this? I don’t even have to pay for shipping! You print out your shipping information and put it on the box and say, “See You Later!!!” (Actually no I won’t – I’ll see a sweet check in the mail later 😉 haha)

This has to be the newest number one purging and organizing tip I’ve gotten all month! If you want to check it out – click the link above and give it a go yourself! You can go through the whole process to just see what you are going to make without even sending your things in.

After showing this to Brian, I think he’s a little more excited about getting rid of a few things and that’s a huge accomplishment to say the least!

What do you think!?

Love Always,

J

Goodbye Little Girl

1 Sep

My little girl is growing up so fast. So much so that we are now considering buying her big girl games! Brian and I were talking about things to keep her entertained on car rides as well as at night when we are laying around together as family. She usually steals my phone and plays games and watches shows on it but I’m kind of tired of sharing it!

 

So we’ve decided to upgrade our little girl with her own electronic device made by leapfrog – but we are trying to decide between two choices. The cheaper version: The LeapFrog Explorer:

 

Or the more expensive route: The LeapPad2

 

What we really wanted was something travel friendly, easy to carry, not many pieces to lose, and something obviously entertaining for Emma. Right now we are leaning toward the more expensive one just because it seems to offer a bit more options.

 

Anyone have any opinions? I’d love to see what other people think of these items!

 

Love Always,

J

King Pinz, Call of Duty, and the McRib!

9 Nov

Yesterday we celebrated B’s birthday and I promised pictures .. unfortunately I forgot my camera so I am using google pictures (minus B’s card and E’s pic) to give you a feel of the night.

The place looked like this:

The girls drank these:

The boys drank these:

E wore daddy’s favorite shirt:

and since we aren’t spending money on each other for gives I gave B this:

Then we came back to the house for some fresh hot BROWNIES!

It was an awesome night and right now? Yeah B is playing Call of Duty: Black Opps with no interruptions 🙂 I even went to McDonald’s to buy him a McRib so he could eat his favorite McDonald’s meal and keep playing. I love him.

Love Always,

J

And this is where it all begins!

24 Oct

I started out this blog completely clueless about what I wanted to write about. I figured I’d start talking about my everyday life and a few people might follow along. Then I realized that this is a great place to get me back on track with my crafts and fun mom things I’ve wanted to do for sometime. THEN my sister got me hooked on books and now I have been reviewing things left and right thanks to this new survey thing I started. The best part of all is that I seem to be balancing all of these things and still getting my mom things done! (Even more so before because now I have motivation!) It’s amazing that this all started with my husband thinking about writing his own blog about sports, movies, and video games (the three loves of his life besides E and I of course) and what do you know.. I am the one blogging while he is still watching sports, movies, and playing video games. Haha I love him. But seriously the second I can get B to start blogging he will be on my blogroll list because he is an amazing writer.

It’s been exciting learning more about myself, other mothers out there, and for once in my life not feeling like I am not ping-ponging!! HOORAYY! I have mastered multi-tasking and not given up on one project yet. So keep your eyes open all you followers. Before you know it, this blog is going to make history 😛 Just kidding but wouldn’t it be cool!!? Haha. No but seriously, I said a little Thank you to all my 50 followers and this morning I don’t know what happened but my post titled Martha Stewart Hates Me 😉 got 189 views.. I hit over 200 today for the first time in my life I felt like I was reaching out to people! Okay okay, enough bragging. I get it, your yawning out there. Get back to the crafts J.. So here we go:

I promised an updated picture of my crocheting so here it is!

Sorry for the bad lighting and terrible picture quality. Love the convenience and hate the quality of camera phones!

I haven’t made it to the craft store today but it is on my list for tomorrow along with a trip to the library to pick up The Accidental Mother by Rowan Coleman. I am so excited!! I read the first 50 pages of this book using the Nook on Barnes and Noble (check out my previous post titled Book, Nook, Hooked if you are curious). Oh and I think I am getting a pick for E to review from my sister, K. That just might be the start of my review of children’s things because I sure have a lot to say about the toys this child has gotten!

Expect a couple of reviews from back when Emma was stationary. I am heading to the beginning and reviewing all those wonderful baby shower items and cleaning it out at the same time! YAY for decluttering!!

Yes that’s me prego with my all my gifts and little E in my belly!! Wow I look so much younger there …

Stay in touch.

Love Always,

J
