We were in complete spring cleaning mode this weekend. Actually it started earlier in the week when our real estate agent told us she wanted to do an open house on Sunday. I try to keep the house and clean and clutter free, but with two small boys and a dog things get hectic! So, throughout the week we had started throwing out a lot of junk and on Saturday after an early morning viewing of Boss Baby, which the boys adored we headed home to continue the cleaning. Jon tackled the backyard and finished up inside, which meant getting my closet in shape! I didn’t want potential home owners thinking we didn’t have enough storage and an exploding closet would do just that.
The best part of cleaning was getting my home office back in order! It tends to become the catch all room for blog projects, the boys projects, stuff that needs to make it to the backyard, etc. So, it was nice to finally have a cleared up desk space:
My fabric library back in order:
I also fixed up my bulletin board, which was an easy DIY project that I’m obsessed with.
It was a lot of work getting the whole house perfect for the open house, but luckily we managed to finish it all on Saturday and I even had time finish watching my favorite show! I loved season 3 and I’m sad that I binge watched so quickly and now I’m all done!
On Sunday we got out of the house in the morning so that the open house could take place. The sun was out and the day was beautiful. We knew immediately what we wanted to do! We love to head to Diane’s Bakery Cafe. It’s been around since 1982 and it’s seriously one of my favorite places on L.I. We know everyone that works there and we try it and make it there every Sunday, but we haven’t gotten there in a while!
On our way home we tried attending an open house, but it was not meant to be. I wasn’t in love with the area, the side street to get to the house was super busy with lots of traffic. Then we arrived and there was a long line out the door with people waiting to get in. It was as if they were giving the house away for free. It was nuts! So, since we weren’t in love with the area we figured it wasn’t worth it to wait.
We headed back home and then I got to sneak out to check out a 40% off sale that was going on at Old Navy! I did a little dressing room diaries on instagram so if you head over there (username:camilapavone) then you will still see it!
Overall it was a fun weekend! Fingers crossed we get offers on our house this week!
