Mad Organizational Skills...

Do you ever have those days where you wake up and say, 
"I'm going to clean my house today. The whole thing. All of it."
Just me?
Alright so I tried to clean my whole house the other day.
I started with the kitchen.
And ended with the kitchen.
Why? You ask.
Well, because I opened my pantry and this is what I saw...

I'm not going to lie.
I was scared.
I looked in the dictionary for the definition of "hot mess"
This is what I saw:

So I organized. 
A lot.
And after a few hours it looked like this:

Organized serenity.
Let's take another looksie
 It makes me so happy.
Is that wrong?
You know what makes me the happiest?
My little tin-can soldier corner. 
The little Mormon girl in me is just plain giddy at this sight.
I can't help it.

Most of it went to pantry numero dos.
It lives in the garage.
Now it needs organization too.
We'll save that for later. 

Goodnight Peeps!

Snowpocalypse 2011

It snowed today.
School was canceled.
People were told to stay home from work.
It was basically a city-wide emergency.
This is what my backyard looked like at 8:30 this morning.
 Don't I have a cute snow lined street?
Now I understand that this is not snow. 
This is Oregon snow.
If this were real snow, at 4 o'clock,  my backyard would look like this:
Yeah, ice sculpture and all.
Instead at 4 o'clock my backyard looked like this:
Man I love living in Eugene.

My super exciting Saturday or midterm study craziness starts...

Today I was an excellent student.
I woke up early, got my dawdling out of the way
Set up my study den
 And studied, studied, studied 
For like 10 hours.

I started this morning around 10:30

 And my eyes stopped focusing around 10:30

Here's what I'm studying:

 These topics will rule my life from now until 12:00 on Wednesday. 

Sorry for the inconvenience.

New Kitchen Toy!

Last night I made a plan for today.
I was going to:
Wake up early.
Go to school 
Meet with a UO advisor
Study for my Biology mid term
Go to the gym
None of that happened.

Instead I:
Slept in a little
(till like 9, just to clarify I'm not sleeping until noon)
Did some laundry
Played Plants vs. Zombies
a lot.
Oh, and I broke the toaster.

So we went to Target to get a new toaster, which brought up the toaster oven discussion. We hardly use the microwave and to be honest it gives me the heebies to eat food from there. 
So we bought a toaster oven.

And it made our kitchen go from this:

To this:

I know right now you're thinking how awesome my yellow countertops are. 
I'm thinking where the heck am I going to put my recycling? 
And my Bailey's?

But now for dinner. 
Which may or may not include frozen pizza.
