snowed in. and so much to do.

I opened my eyes. looked out the window. and only white. the “slight dusting” we had in our forecast turned out to be another winter storm. meet rocky. [at least he has a better name than last week’s “winter storm Q”].


all I know is it’s not suppose to end until tomorrow. at noon. ugh! did I ever mention I highly despise driving in extreme conditions when it’s snowing? & [J] is gone until the end of the week. so you can find me at home. accomplishing what I’ve been putting off.


the problem areas: the pantry. & the home office.

[J] you should be so, so happy you’re away – I’d be puttin’ you to work!

I’m currently indulging in a love/hate relationship with pinterest. on one hand: so many great ideas & inspiration. on the other: such high standards.

I’m starting with the pantry.




I will not be painting or making any cosmetic changes to the pantry. I just want to organize the food storage. hellllllo that’s the point, right? plus, we’re renting I’d have to paint it back. no way jose. it’s a closet!!

meet my pantry inspiration.

wish me luck. as much as I love the finished project. and even the process of organizing. beginning is so daunting. but thanks to nasty rocky, I have little choice.

if you’re in the snow storm’s rath: stay warm. & safe. if you’re not, like [J]: you’re lucky.

happy tuesday.
