Getting organized

 The last couple of weeks, I have really been trying to get our home organized.  I have complained alot about the lack of storage that we have in our townhouse...we don't even have an utility closet, so I have to get creative on storage.  My "throw all" space is in my laundry closet, but this past week, I took everything out and either threw things away, or organized!  As you can tell, I have at least a year supply of laundry soap and softner!  I threw away all of the yucky old towels, lets just say that i had some towels that I have had since I got married!  I know, gross!  I just wish that I could get a new washer and dryer....dreaming!

The second space I have been working on is my kitchen cabinets.  My sister has spoiled me by working at LeCreuset and buying me all sorts of new fun things!  I finally gave away all of my old bowls, cooking pots and pans, pie pans, bread pans, EVERYTHING!  I love opening this cabinet and seeing all of these beautiful colors, it makes me happy!!

Fort Collins Wild Fire

Yesterday morning, a wild fire broke out just north of Fort Collins.  So far, it has burned more then 15,000 acres and has destroyed some homes.  These pictures are taken right outside of our front door.  This morning we woke up and there was ash all over the cars.  The weather here has been really hot, but windy so it is making it hard for the firefighters to contain the fire. 


 I can't get enough of this cute little face!  I was so happy when I saw her, having our whole family here for Bristyns graduation was a dream come true!
 Caralynn and all that licorice all over her face!
 Mike, Bristyn and me
 My favorite three girls in the world, Bristyn, Britnee and Caralynn

 So long, farewell.....
Bristyn graduated on Saturday, May 26, 2012.  I am going to be honest, I had a really hard time with her graduating.  I am so excited for her and her future, but I am having a hard time letting her go!  The graduation ceremony was at the CSU gymnasium, and it was wonderful. 

Bristyn and Savanna's graduation party

 Most of the cousins on my side of the brother was not able to attend, since he lives in Washington.

 My sister Liz, my sister, Michelle and me.....I know, I look the youngest!

On Friday, May 25th, we had a graduation party for Bristyn and Savanna!  Our biggest surprise was that Mike flew in Britnee and Caralynn.  Bristyn was so excited to see them, as was I.  I would say that the party was a huge success, there was over 150 people that attended.  The food was awesome, the decorations were great, and the company that we had were so much fun!  Bristyn and Savanna were so happy with the party, it made me feel really good after all the stress I had of putting it on!  I love these I keep saying, my life is totally going to change in August when the go away to college.
