Spring Cleaning!

One nice thing about the second trimester is you get your energy back! Just in time for some good old fashioned spring cleaning! I just so happened to be looking around online recently for some blogs for Christian homemaker/home educators and stumbled across this blog:

I was so excited when I saw that they were going to begin a 5 week spring cleaning challenge on April 5th! Each week would be a different room(s) of the house. Week 1 we began in the kitchen!

Here is a "before" shot of my pantry...

...and here is the "after" shot!

Unfortunately I didn't get any other "before shots, but I will show some of my finished product in the kitchen!

My sparkling white fridge!

The inside of my fridge, which by the way is still pretty clean, 2 weeks later! :)

Boy does it feel good to have a clean kitchen! If the kitchen is clean and nothing else is clean, I am happy! That doesn't mean I get a free pass to not continue cleaning... week 2 was the living room. I got a lot done but am a little behind. This week is the bathroom. Today I will be tackling the cabinets and linen closets. Oh yeah, and today is my 34th birthday! Yes I am still cleaning on my birthday and plan to do a little grocery shopping later today... I'm still a Mom and Wife even when it's my birthday! Steve and I will be celebrating tomorrow night for dinner on our own.


  1. Happy Belated Birthday, Caryn! Why is it that birthdays and cleaning seem to go hand and hand? Oh yeah, motherhood! I'm glad you guys are getting to celebrate today. Enjoy!

  2. Thanks Julie! You know, a mother's work is never done, right?!

  3. Your kitchen looks sparkling! I'm sure your husband appreciates this new venture!
