Cloud 9 Living: Because Even Nichole & David need adventure every now and then! #mycloud9

Ever since David and I got married we do tend to stay to ourselves- I am not really sure as to why, that is just the way that we are. When I was going to college I had a few people that I interacted with, but I haven't ever really been one to be all that social and have people to hang out with and all of that. I would much rather hang out with my mom or family members or whatever. I tend to do my socializing online. David has a friend from his childhood that he will ever rare moon hang out with for a little while but the guys girlfriend is a bit- I don't know the right word So yes, we do get jokes about being old boring married people and how we would rather stay at home than get out and all of that- we really never have cared about it, and in the long run I really don't care but..every now and again I am like well maybe we should snap out of it and get out and about while we can! One recent instance of this was on Valentines day this year. Now- this seems innocent enough at ...

the weather – well -it is interesting here in the south as always!

Hey All Well.. Yesterday Evening I made it out to the patio closet to clean out things for the yard sale.. and it was not hard AT ALL. That might be the most organized area we have in the whole house lol. It was just a few storage tubs full of those space bags with a few blankets and some had some clothes. I managed to clean out 2 more bags of clothes/household stuff out so that was nice. I had this storage cube thing and after I brought it in the house to go through it I remembered that thing had a TON of stuff in it and it wasn't easy to get it all in there and sealed so I just took it back to the closet lol. There is a tub of christmas stuff, a christmas tree and a bag of shoes but .. it is all good :) David has redone our electronics situation in the living room again and I currently can't watch tv other than cable in there  because he didn't finish setting it up yet so... I am hanging out in the bedroom today- well for now anyways. I was hoping that this was going to be the ...

a little change of yarsale plans ;)

Hey Everyone Phew this week - I don't know about this week lol. It seemed like Monday and Tuesday flew by and here we are on wed and it is only 12:00 (lunch time ) and it feels like it should be like.. Friday now? I didn't sleep good last night- like one of those awake every few minutes it seemed like kind of nights and then I didn't sleep well when David left for work.. Then I was kind of in and out when my mom called and said she was gonna go coupon at CVS and did I want to go and I was like um... meh no lol. She stopped by on her way back home though, so that was cool. I hadn't saw her since my birthday because she has had a really nasty sinus infection/cold.  Last night I found out they are going to do a yardsale for us folks here at the apartment place the same weekend my mom and I were planning to have one at her house ..and even provide tables and what not so my mom said we should try to do one here first and then do one at her house later on so I went and signed up for it ...

BOOK TOUR: Year of No Clutter- Information & Your chance to win! #dayofnoclutter #booktour #weekofnoclutter #yearofnoclutter

I will receive a copy of the book in exchange for promoting it and the related events! As you all know I am a huge book lover but hate reviewing them I have never done a book tour before but I thought this might be the way for me to go on that level! As you all may know- I have been on a mission to unclutter my house for a few weeks and have made some great progress- even though it seems that the more I do, the more I have to do!  I think at this point the last few things I have to do are: My Closet- finish the right shelf, the pants hanging in the back and the tub of random what not that needs put away -and the bag of pants. The Outside Closet- not sure if I am going here or not lol My Bathroom - straighten/organize/clean out If you knew what a CHORE and Nemesis my closet has been you'd be wanting to totally celebrate just the progress I made in there so far! I have at several points done a mini session in there and went through and done a minimal amount of work just so ...

on the yardsale cleaning out front

Hi Everyone! Well..I am continuing to make progress on my clean all the stuff for yardsale project. However, it seems like the further I get with it , the more I have to do!  Yesterday I got through the cubby hangy things in my closet and in Davids closet- it is all my junk in them, I just keep 2 in Davids closet and 1 in mine. I ended up with a garbage bag of clothes and 3 empty cubby holes wahoo!  I also cleaned off the back of the closet door - it was a mangle of purses, bras, coats and more. When all is said and done, I will re-arrange and re-work everything - like after I clean out the rest of the closet and the drawers- believe me it is a great concept if I ever get through lol. I am just literally sick of looking at the same shirts and crap that I never wear lol. I am hoping to get back to it sometime this afternoon..I have developed this method of just carrying a drawer/cubby of clothes into the living room and then I can just still watch tv or whatever and I don't ...

back to early mornings? well.. maybe!

Hey Everyone Well.. I don't know WHY exactly but I stayed up this morning after David left for work! I had a tiny headache and had got up to take some advil and then I wanted to write a few things to remember /to do for today on my marker board and next thing I know I am chilling in bed with the fur babes watching tv! Yesterday on Nichole's cleaning journey- the continuing saga right? I managed to clean out my hall closet. The hall closet is actually a linen closet I suppose but I use it to store a few random things and it is mostly DVD's. I actually now have 2 of the shelves in there totally empty! I told David that means I can bring more books from my mom and dads over and he kinda just looked at me lol. I probably won't bring any but it is nice to know if I wanted to I could :) I would have likely grabbed a bag and started pitching clothes-but after David got home I was loosing my mojo and he wanted to go to walmart. I generally don't start my cleaning binges till around 3 ...
