How I Spent My NYE

Once you have children New Year's Eve just isn't the same. For example:

I began the day by ripping out the entire contents of my pantry to reorganize it. (Here's to getting a jump start on my New Year's Resolution...Organize!)

I did a little shopping with my Mama. To buy a dress for NYE??? Nope. To buy fabric and accessories for a little home project. More on that in another post.

I enlisted the children to help me make my first batch of homemade laundry soap. I was inspired by this post (actually, Kelle inspires me daily!) I used Sweet Orange essential oil instead of lavender and it works great!

And then the grand finale of the evening was at 12:53 when we awoke because Bug had an accident in the bed after being put to sleep without a pull-up.

Don't be jealous of my fun! ;)  It was actually a wonderful New Year's Eve and Day. We ate pork chops, black eyed peas and turnip greens for New Year's dinner. Here's to prosperity, luck, money, and my resolution to stay organized.


  1. homemade laundry soap?! maybe I should try this!

  2. yay for organizing! I have thought about making my own detergent and haven't done it yet. Let me know how you like yours!

  3. haha, this was my first NYE as a mom and it was totally relaxed and lowkey. I LOVED IT!


Go ahead and know ya' wanna!
