Brownie Points!

Today was a lazy Sunday. We stayed in our PJs and didn't leave the house.  I wasn't feeling much better than yesterday but I made it through the day!  This was by far the highlight for me:

Laundry room cabinets!
David got himself some brownie points...

We got the green light from our landlord months ago to hang cabinets in the laundry room here at the cottage. I picked some up from a local Habitat For Humanity Restore for $25 and they've been sitting in our storage shed ever since. It feels so good to have that crossed off our list. Now I get to complete a couple of more fun little projects for that room and then I'll do a fun reveal post. Since this is a rental, we won't put any more money into things we can't take with us. The walls won't be the color I'd choose and the cabinets aren't perfect for the space but $25 is definitely worth even just a few months of better organization. I can't wait until I'm feeling better so I can put some time into filling the cabinets and clearing some valuable space in our only linen closet. 

We also watched Disney's Robin Hood on Netflix tonight. It was one of my favorites as a kid and it was so great to see Ayden enjoying it too. It is fun for him to be at an age where we can start enjoying things like that as a family. Movies definitely provide opportunity for some major quality snuggle time. 

Before I sign off, I wanted to share some articles/blog posts that I have stumbled across and enjoyed for one reason or another lately.
