Five on Friday

Maddox... my favorite subject
I figure why not start my Five on Friday with my favorite little guy :)  My dad is a Duke fan and we are Carolina fans.  In reality... the rivalry is the fun of it all.  So I took these pictures of Maddox and sent them to him :)  And how sweet is the quilt that my mother in law made for him before he was born?  I'm sure he'll cherish it forever.

Weekend Reno Project... Operation: Master Closet
I showed pictures in my last post of all the rooms in my house as before pictures.  I included what my master closet looks like with all our clothes and such in it.  It just doesn't work.  So I took everything out during naptime today to prepare it for when Darren gets home and I can paint it.  I really don't want to spend money on paint for a closet so I have some light gray leftover from Maddox's room and a couple samples of darker grays so I'm going to create my own color lol  Hey... it works and we are the only ones that see it, right?  We'll see what happens anyway.  I'll post when everything is finished.  Who knows if that will be this weekend or not.  I sure hope so because there are now clothes everywhere haha. 
Here are the pictures with nothing in the closet except for the shelves that were already there...

Office Supplies... the way to my heart :)
I'm a complete nerd when it comes to office/art supplies.  I want to start doing some drawing, word art, hand lettering sort of stuff.  Darren had a graph paper leather notebook that he got for taking a class at work and he so kindly gave it to me because he knows that love=office/art supplies lol  But seriously...he is the sweetest :)  And one of the blogs that I follow (By Dawn Nicole) posted about some cool pens that she got recently and really liked and I just happened to be in Target yesterday and walked by them and they were on sale.... so I bought them.  I'll let you know what I think. 

I started a Facebook page for Goal Minded Girl.  Feel free to hop on over and like my page :)  It's a slow process but I really am trying to make it bigger.
What's the weather like where you are?  I'm in the piedmont area of NC so right now, it's 24 degrees.  I'm a southern girl, born and raised.  I don't like cold.  If it's going to be this cold, it needs to just go ahead and snow so everything can shut down and we can enjoy a few free days at home.  Then it can warm right back up and go away until next year.  But that's just me :)  Plus...who wouldn't like to see some snow baby pictures? :)
