Where have I gone?

Not sure if anyone noticed but I haven’t been posting on here in a while.  I finally realized that I don’t have the time or motivation to be a good beauty blogger – and I feel GREAT about it.  It feels like a weight has been lifted, so I definitely know I’m making the right decision.

I still have a different personal blog which is much easier to keep up with and I love it!  Feel free to join me over on Tumblr – organizeddanie.tumblr.com – and follow me on Twitter @OrganizedDanie.

Moving Day!

Today Steve and I are moving into a bigger apartment!!  Up until now we have been living in a one bedroom one bathroom apartment.  It hasn’t been bad, it’s just enough space for two people, but we didn’t have enough room for all of our STUFF!  We each have full bedroom sets and living room sets so all of Steve’s furniture has been in storage for the last four months.

Our new place has THREE bedrooms and two bathrooms :) I was so happy when we found a place that was going to fit all of our couches into the living room.  Once it’s all set up I’ll post some pictures.  I really have no idea how it will end up so it’ll be interesting.  Oh!  One of the best parts is that my friend Cathy lives right across the street with her boyfriend!

Happy Labor Day Weekend!!
