Wouldn’t that be awesome?!

The Sound

movie entertainment center cubes

We made a few changes to the setup. Don’t mind the movie mess. This is on the declutter to-do list. But we want to mention the extra speakers we tucked away.

There are the surround sound speakers up front, and a couple big ones in back.

There wasn’t a great place for them, until we thought to add them to the cube cubby!

The speakers are pretty big, so we had to take out the divider to put each into two spaces. Drilled some holes in the back and called it a day! Sorry I don’t have an “after” picture here.

The Skyline

Joe’s Dad’s friend makes these out of metal! How cool, right?

Of course Joe put some LED lights underneath.

The Sweethearts

Goodwill portrait

This picture has a good story.

Goodwill finds

Joe and his friend Will got it from Goodwill for about $3. Joe brought it home and I was surprised by just how much it looked like the two of us. I expected it to be just a small frame, but it’s about 4’x2′!

Meet our quaint little key rack from YHL‘s Target collection. I was so excited to get this!

It’s been very useful — constantly juggling 4+ vehicles into limited parking spaces.

Joe found this cool tablet clamp for the kitchen – It snaps right onto the cupboard.

For how much I reference recipes and listen to music while I cook, this is a lifesaver…       I think he knows me 😉

Last Little Update

pitbull puppy love

Have you met this little thing yet?

cute pitbull puppy

Not sure how she spells her name, but the phonetic is [Shy-luh] She’s roommate Steve’s 6 month year old pitbull pup. An absolute sweetheart! She’s almost completely potty trained. She’s even learning to mind her manners with the bunnies.

Anyone else excited for spring cleaning?
