I am the type of person that forgets what I have in my fridge, and won't even think about cleaning it out, until one day I find something absolutely disgusting in there. I know, I am totally disgusting. I just don't have time nor the energy to do such a task all the time.

Last night, I opened my fridge, and I was looking for something to make for dinner. I haven't had to cook in three weeks since my husband has been gone. Well, now that he is home, the stove and oven seem to magically turn themselves on. I just don't understand it. As I was digging I found some lettuce. Ya'll are like, "big deal" she found lettuce. Well, let me tell you the history of this lettuce. Three weeks ago, To. The. Day! we had tacos for dinner. I went to the store that night to BUY the lettuce for the tacos. I recall the ladies reaction when I bought lettuce, Q-tips, and a candle. Yeah, it was pretty funny.

So I am expecting to open my lettuce container and see this nasty brown mush. You all know what I am talking about. I know I am not the only one that has left lettuce in the fridge for three weeks. Be prepared for what you are about to see!

Can you believe it?! I was so excited!!! 1- I didn't have to deal with the nastiness, and 2- we are having salad with our dinner (and probably for my lunch tomorrow, which I did)

Look how fresh and clean these little leaves are!

I used some Tupperware containers that I won at a show three or so years ago. At the one end they have these little buttons, which controls the airflow in the containers. On the side of the container, it gives airflow recommendations for 30 different vegetables. I tried taking a picture of the side, but I couldn't get the camera to focus on the words, and I got really frustrated. 

Tupperware didn't pay me to say anything about their company or this product; I am just letting you all know that these FridgeSmart Tupperware containers are DA BOMB!

Do you have any food storage containers that you absolutely love? Tell me about them!

Kitchen Cabinet Handles

For YEARS now, I have been wanting new kitchen cabinet handles. I can now officially say that, since we did just buy the house late 2009 and now it is 2011. Crazy how time flies! So yes, for years I have wanted new handles. You can clearly see why, right?

The picture doesn't show to well, the actual color of the metal. You know the 80's brass that was SO in style but honey it ain't no more! Well, it used to be that, but has rubbed off some of the brassyness (I love making new words) and now shows some silvery tones. I know that silver is not that bad, but the shine, and that plastic! Too much for me to handle. So, I am going to do it with out asking hubby ask, maybe even beg him if I can do another project. He hates how I have umpteen different projects started. I will get this one done though; I just would; I PROMISE!! I am just practicing on you. Thanks :)

Unfortunately, we just don't have the money to do anything right now. Except, A HA! I should have enough to buy a couple cans of spray paint, right? $10.00 shouldn't kill me. Well, I have never bought spray paint, so it could be more than that and I have no idea. But for now, we are going to pretend 10 buckaroonies to do a makeover of these handles. The next problem is that the nearest place for me to buy anything of the sort is 40 minutes away, so.... It might not get done any time soon :( Unless I beg ask politely if we can go there tomorrow.

Here are some inspiration pictures of what I would like them to look like, even though the shape it totally different:

I heart aged bronze!

So totally, freaken excited! I just hope that I could make them look half way decent. I've never spray painted before. Any suggestions? Let me know! Thanks :)

So This Is Love

Today, I want to write about the love of my life. Now, I do have many loves.

Shop - what girl doesn't!

Eat - bring on the chocolate, baby!

Cook - mainly because I like to eat, hehe

Read - especially in a bubble bath

and even -- WAIT FOR IT -- yes, Decorate!

But THIS LOVE is so much more than those loves. I LOVE my husband, Benjamin. I realize that him being gone for one.whole.week! isn't that bad, but I am still in that "my breath gets caught when you walk in the room" or "I blush when you look at me that certain way". You know what I am  talking about. Remember your wedding? When you just looked at each other and nothing could happen that could ruin the moment? I hope this feeling NEVER ends....

Okay, sorry, a little gushy, BUT I AM SO HAPPY HE IS HOME!!!, and I just had to let ya'll know. :P

What happened to UNcomplicated?!

As you have noticed, I haven't been posting anything. It is so sad. I want to be able to do this amazing thing, and I don't make the time for it! Actually, I have to do it during my lunch break each day, since I don't have the internet at home, which TOTALLY sucks by the way. So again, I am going to start blogging. I have found some inspiration. Now! I am ready. I just decided to come and start again, and as I was thinking of what I would like to tackle next, I ran into Traci at  Beneath My Heart. She is having a Organizing Your Heart and Home linky party during the month of January! Yeah ME! I have a new project. This week is Organizing the Closet! Well, as I was thinking about each one of my closets, I realized that none of my closets are unorganized because I never put anything in the closets. I put everything in my guest bedroom! Can you take a guess at what my project is? If you guessed my master closet, you are wrong! If you guessed my guest bedroom, you are absolutely, one-hundred percent RIGHT!

Now, I apologize for the pictures, because I wasn't going to take any pictures because I still hadn't found my camera cord. Until I was cleaning out "the closet"!!! Yeah ME!!! So here are some pictures of EVERYTHING that was in "the closet".

NOTHING was in boxes or totes. I was able to put everything in
a total of 3 totes, 7 boxes, and few items went into the appropriate bags.
Hint: Tennis rackets are allowed to go IN the tennis bags. :)

My desk was pilled with junk. This wasn't even the worst of it. 
(This is where I found my camera cord!) 
That is when I started taking pictures. 

Now please remember before you start looking at the next few pictures, my goal was to do this without spending any money. While everything was out of the room, I did paint it a soft gray, but I already had that in the basement just waiting for a room to call it's name. Hopefully, sometime in the near future this room will actually get decorated, but I would like to do my bedroom first :)

So ignore, the cords that are hanging out behind the desk, because I don't have any of those valcro-ee things, but instead LOOK at the binders, and baskets that are now all neatly organized!!!

And LOOK at this! My futon is uncovered and can actually be used! Okay, futons are sad items, but at least we do have a place for a single company to sleep...

Hey, we are recently married and are broke, so don't judge me people, because I am SO proud of myself and everything that I was able to accomplish :)

Thanks Traci for motivating me!
