Everything but the Kitchen Sink Link Party

Hey all! How's your week going? Mine is good. I actually have some energy and spent the week getting the house cleaned. It's been a while, so it was not a pretty sight. I decided since I tend to get tired out easily and moving my body in a quick fashion can lead to pulled stomach muscles, to only do one major cleaning chore a day. Monday I started the laundry and vacuumed downstairs. Tuesday I mopped the kitchen floor and finished up the laundry. Wednesday I took the vacuum upstairs and cleaned the floors and then used the dust attachment to dust the furniture. Today I cleaned the bathrooms and organized all my piles of paper that have been laying around the house driving me crazy. Tomorrow I will empty all of the trash cans and then collapse in a heap of exhaustion. That's my plan anyway. I'm not a huge fan of cleaning, but I do enjoy the 1-clean-task-a-day approach and have used it before and will no doubt use it again once our little bundle of joy arrives. How do you guys clean? Do you have a method as well?

Ok, here were the top 5 popular clicks from last week...

Saving 4 Six shows us how to organize a bathroom for a large family. Her tips are priceless! Go check it out!

Racks and Mooby shares her ideas for a rainbow birthday party. So cute and can I just say....YUM!

Design Dreams by Anne shares with us her love of old doors and windows, and how she incorporates them into her amazing style. I love how she uses them and I'm now on the hunt for some old doors or windows to copy those ideas. :)

You guys must be in an organizing mood, because Domestic Imperfections organized pantry was a huge favorite. I have to say, I enjoyed it as well! I love the stencils and the little racks she added for the spices. Brilliant!

I'm always a fan of a good furniture makeover and this one is no exception. Check out what My Serendepitious Life accomplished re-doing this cute side table. I love the color she chose--so happy and spring-like!

Now, time for the party! Don't forget to spread the word and leave comments! It's a fun way to make new friends and keep up with the old ones. Not age-old., of course. We're all 23 in blogland, right? RIGHT???

Have fun!
