Weekend Wrap-Up: Operation Organization!

Do you ever have a moment where you just want everything to be super organized?? Well I started my weekend with that exact thought! I was a crazy-list-maker and it felt SO good! I feel like my life has been super chaotic lately, so I needed to get it together! haha

I got to work super early on Friday and started separating my 'To-Do's'... I've got 4 Tradeshows coming up and 3 are out of the country. A huge white-boarding session was in order!

 This next list is huge... only because we haven't been to the grocery store in over a month! I know, I know... After going to 3 grocery stores {Wal-Mart, Market Street and Costco} we have a fully stocked fridge and pantry! A M A Z I N G!

I came home Friday to find this on our door step! It's officially official!!! MBA graduate. Now we need to frame this bad boy and put it up in the office!

 OK, let's talk about this mess of a closet... I was waiting for T to get home from H-town and I figured I would surprise him with a clean closet. After all, he said that my mess was literally stressing him out {can we say dramatic?!}. So I was a good wife and got to organizing this mess known as tornado Jessica. It only took a minute couple of hours.

BAM! What a huge difference... I am so proud of my work.. I even vacuumed! And yes, I'm tooting my own horn - sometimes you have to. Tyler was shocked and then said "you know, if you would put everything up when you take it off, it would never get that messy." Great advice.. maybe I'll listen one day.
 
Saturday night we went to Tierney's for a date night with our besties, Whitney and Gavin. It was a blast! They had great home cookin' style food and a live band, which sounded similar to Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Whitney and I after dinner... LOVE her!!

Sunday night we decided to try a few new recipes.. one for dinner and the other to take for lunches throughout the week. We love to have a drink while cooking.. it's our reward!

We made this Italian soup and it was so tasty! I can't wait to have it for lunch today. First time trying this recipe and it was a success. Recipe will be hitting the blog this week, so keep an eye out! :)

How was your weekend?! Did it involve organization or date nights with great friends?
Happy Monday!

  10. I am an organization junkie! Good job on the closet. We love white boards around here too. My lil peanut has one in her bedroom to keep herself organized. Trained her early!
