MIA...ya think?!

So my last post was 21 days ago. That's like a month. A LOT has been going on and I can't believe it's the END of March. Where did the time go??

I turn in my grad school portfolio this Tuesday and I will be DONE with my internship. After that I only have a few papers to write and I can officially say goodbye to grad school.

J got a new car!! We went a bit over our budget and purchased a 2009 Honda Accord with only 17,000 miles on it! Wahoo!! He is so excited! We actually bought it over a week ago, but we just picked it up today. They had to fix some scratches and detail it, but it looks fabulous and he was beaming! :)

I've discovered a new recipe for my buttercream icing. It's a mix of icings I've used in the past. It's pretty freakin amazing, if you ask anyone me. This is one that I won't be sharing because my dream is to have my own cupcake store one day and if I do, then my secret will already be out there. We can't have that happening now, can we?

Even though March has gone extremely fast, we haven't done much except for school work. I'm finally on spring break and we have a few things planned for the week, which will make great blogging material.

Happy Friday!!

Hello March 1st. Where did the time go? January and February just flew by! I guess that's a good thing...and these temperatures are crazy! 40s, 50s, and 60s in February? That is unheard of in Ohio, especially being this consecutive.

Will March continue this amazing pattern?? I'm all for it!

But what will March bring to our little family?

My school is hosting it's first ever sock hop. I'm super excited. Now I just need to find something to wear!

J has a lot of elections at work and will spend hours counting votes. Talk about some fun right there.

Spring break. Spring break. Spring break.

Several meetings and even more classes

Family birthdays (my cousin, J's grandparents, J's mom)

Setting our clocks forward on March 11th. Can I get a wahoo?!

My grad school portfolio is due at the end of March, scary but true! I will feel such a relief when I turn it in and say goodbye for ever!

A sigh of relief that we made it through the month!

Even though March is a long month, I'm so excited that it is here!

Style on Organization

I've always had a love for organization. I love trying to find new ways to put things away in their "proper" place. I like taking a mess and making it fit nice and neat into cute little bins with labels on the front. I especially like doing this with other peoples things. My own--not so much fun. One of my big summer projects this year is going to be organizing everything! Our home literally needs an organization update. I will just take a room at a time and go crazy!

I'm pretty sure I've been organizing since the day I started playing school in my parent's basement but recently there has been one tv show/person who has really made me look at organization in a new way. Meet Amanda LeBlanc.

Not only is she gorgeous, but she is an organization specialist and a fab mom! You can see all her amazing work and ideas on her new show The Amandas, which is on Style.

Doesn't this make you want to organize? 

My biggest goal would be the linen closet and pantry. Look at these amazing pantry organizers all found on
