Friday Favs, Getting Organized

I know we have not even been in the house two weeks yet so I can't expect to be completely settled in, but I am so anxious to get completely unpacked and organized it's driving me crazy. Yesterday I had a client who is a professional organizer and I swear going into her apartment made me want to come home and organize my linen closet! Coming home to a neat and tidy living room is one thing, but having organized cabinets, drawers and closets is the ultimate luxury in my opinion. Here are a few of my favorite things that I've been using to help me get organized at the new house. 

Our bathroom is tiny, so we don't have any room for any type of wall shelving. I love the idea of using a cute mirrored or vintage tray to organize toilitries if you have a surface to place it on. 

At the apartment I had 2-3 towel bars on the back of every closet door, they were so helpful for storing not only towels but all of my linens. I plan on installing them in all the doors at the new house too. 

Baskets baskets and more baskets, I can't get enough of them. I just found the perfect wire and burlap baskets at Home Goods to store our shoes under the bench in the mud room. I will post pictures once our bench cushion is done! 

Utilizing every square inch of a closet efficiently (i.e. not cramming things in) is one of the most important things in any small space. I love how in this picture the drawers are see through making it easy to spot what you are looking for and easy to see when things get out of order.

House Progress and Baby #2!

I was going to title this post "Dear Sauvignon Blanc, I miss you" but I didn't want you all to think my lack of regular posts was due to the fact that I was at Betty Ford. A few exciting things have happened, we are officially in the new house, AND the Mr. and I are excited to announce that we are expecting a baby girl in June!  Despite the fact that our little girl's room is the size of the landing at Mom and Dad's house (literally Mom and I measured), it is going to be the perfect space for Jack's little sister. After tearing down walls and renovating the kitchen and the basement we are putting the breaks on house projects, but come Spring it's operation baby girl's room. Here are a few pictures of the progress we have made so far...

Christmas At Mom & Dad's House

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! I meant to post these pictures last week, but I had too much fun playing with Jack and his cousins and all the wonderful new toys that Santa brought, I completely forgot. We have been staying at Mom and Dad's house to make life easier on Jack (and us) since this week is our big move. Despite the fact that the house still has a whole punch list of things to do, Thursday and Friday we move in! Tomorrow I will post some progress photo's of the work so far, as well as some other exciting news, but here is a little recap of our Christmas and all of the beautiful decorations at Mom's house.

Christmas In New York!

I meant to post these pictures last week but between work and all the stuff going on with the new house the week got away from me. Mom and I went up to NYC for a quick little trip to the design center and to see all the fabulous Christmas windows. I think Lord & Taylor had my favorite windows this year, and of course the tree at Rockefeller center was spectacular. However, you will see in tomorrows post why Mom's tree is always my favorite.
