YAY! I followed along last year, but had so much going on and was trying to get out of my house.

this year, I won't be working and I'm in a newer house that needs organizing!

My mom taught me to rinse bacon slices before putting them in the pan - it prevents them from curling up on the ends. I bet this would help with that as well!

Ahhh, it's beautiful.

I agree that setting off the details may make you like it more!

That's a bookcase, not a dollhouse.

Very cute, I just don't get why it's filled with books instead of furniture and, um, dolls.

This is the greatest idea. As a wine lover and not-so-proud owner of rubbermaid tote nightstands, I am officially in search of crates!

It definitely depends on your source. I also live on the MS Gulf Coast and we buy our shrimp from fishermen , straight off their boats.

Okay, let me see if I have this straight. Though we have a 4 bedroom house, 2 boys, and more child on the way, we really need an office space. We have considered rooming the 2 boys together (2 and 5), but I worry about having room for their toys and syncing their bedtimes (they currently have bedtimes 2 hours apart).

Are their toys in this room as well, or is there a playroom?

My 5-year-old son is my alarm clock. My 2-year-old is back up, since he wakes shortly after the 5-year-old. My cell phone serves as a third alarm and most mornings, I am disabling the alarm before it goes off!

It's super cute and costs way less than a Beaba, but... the beaba steams. I already have a mini food processor, so why would i need this?

Definitely one of my favorite spaces!! You have mastered the art of having a cohesive space, which is so important when you're working with little square footage! I'd love to know where your couch is from.

To me, the entire place looks like a husband and wife got married, each with very different styles, and just threw everything into one apartment.

I think they're fun! I mean, I'm with Elizabeth:

"I hate it when my friends have random parties too. It's so narcissistic and silly of them to think that I would want to spend my evening hanging out with them and my other friends and eating free food."

We're considering having one ourselves with this pregnancy, because we have three boys and seriously, EVERYONE is placing bets and talking about what they think we'll have.

SO AMAZING. I also have a 70s kitchen with similar cabinets. I am looking forward to painting ours and this is just the makeover I needed to show my husband how great the dark cabinets look on bottom.

what you said about hidden hinges... You can do that with these types of cabinets?!
