Happy Monday everyone! The kids and I are spending some time at my mom’s house (aka our summer retreat). This is a pic my mom snapped with my phone while the kids were being entertained by their grandparents. Just look how relaxed we are! I look forward to this week every summer. :) Bummed my husband had to head back to San Diego to work but the kids and I have a fun agenda that includes lots of time in the pool, time with grandparents, and time with our friends. (I’ll be sharing lots of pics from our week on instagram – erin_sunnysideup of you want to follow along!) My mom also handed over her annual summer “to organize” list with a big grin on her face. We have a little arrangement each year. She watches the kids for me while I organize for her. It’s a win for both of us. :)
Before I start sharing what I’m up to at my mom’s here are a few pics of another junk drawer I tackled in my kitchen last week. This is my “go-to” drawer in one of my kitchen islands that I’m in and out of the most. It holds pens, scissors, chap stick, tape measures – the little things I need on and off throughout the day. This drawer was such a mess before I tackled it and I keep forgetting to take “before” pics. Let’s just say this is a major improvement. The organizers I picked up at Home Goods (4 bucks each!). They add a fun pop of color.
I keep my girls’ cameras in this drawer so they are easy to grab when they need them. Little photographers in training. :) I’ve also found it’s so handy to have a set of mini screwdrivers close by for all of the kids’ battery operated toys and other miscellaneous household items.
