I am so thankful that our church family had a wonderful baby shower for me last night! My sis took pictures but I don't have them here a few highlights for now =). God is so good to me!

Acts 20:35" is more blessed to give than to receive."
My baby shower outfit 35 weeks!

My sweet little girl Rachel was there while the boys played at our pastor's house!

I received over 12 packs of diapers!

and 20 packs of wipes!

I just finished making thank you cards and I am ready to sleep for about 12 hours tonight!

Decently and In Order: Hampton Rental Home Living and Dining Room

Let all things be done decently and in order.
 Welcome to our dining room! There is nothing to organize in moving on to the living room.

 At first glance it looks like nothing to organize but our ottoman has a lot of storage space!

 The ottoman holds all of our media stuff and some comfy blankets.

 We have a Wii U my husband bought the kids last year and we use pencil boxes that cost $1 at Walmart or Target to divide and conquer.

 Then I found these cute little index card holders that fit perfectly in the pencil boxes to further organize also only a dollar at Walmart.

 Up to 3 remotes fit in one box which is perfect since we have 3 of them is missing in action right now......even in our very organized home sometimes we lose things...We lost a pair of shoes last month and I am still scratching my head as to where they have gone....Gideon does like to throw things in the trash sometimes.

 The pencil boxes also fit up to 3 rechargeable battery holders.

 The closet
 We have a broom, a dust mop, a steam mop and vacuum and my diaper bag. The dust mop makes sweeping the floor twice as fast as using a regular broom =).

 Okay so don't laugh at our tool collection......these are all the tools we We are just renting so any major repair needing big tools the landlord should fix =).

 I keep the extra mop and vacuum accessories in the first basket and my moby wrap in the other basket. Can't wait to wrap up our new little one!!
That's all for our living room and dining room. My favorite part is how comfy our couch is and it holds all of us as a family comfortably =).  Many cuddling memories here with the kiddos and family devotions =).

Decently and In Order: Hampton Rental Home Master bath/closet

I made all these little labels for the under the sink stuff =)

 All we have out on top is the soap, cotton balls, floss picks, and qtips.

 In our "home" basket there is first aid stuff and light bulbs.

 The "teeth" basket we keep all of our extra teeth things. I have been keeping some old glass jars when we finish our food to use around the house for storage =).

 "Hygeine" basket has extra qutips, razors, etc....

My "hair" basket has brushes, hair spray, curling wand, flat iron, blow dryer. Then I hung up all my headbands on a command clip.

 My husband has his hair cutting stuff in these bins...he didn't like my baskets =( He likes everything to be closed with a lid on he might really have

On my side of the vanity drawer I have some hygiene items that are in use. I have all my nail stuff in the mason jar. 

 One of my friends here sells Jamberry nails...and she gave me a gift in a mason jar so I just stuffed all my nail stuff in here. 

 Chris has like nothing on his

 So our closet is an office supply storage and luggage storage...We have airbeds, another pack n play suitcases and all my husbands insurance paper things.

 Yes Chris is only wearing black and gray and khaki.....up top in the clear bins we have some cards/envelopes/labels/laminator/card stock....

 My side of the closet ..with all my clothes I cannot fit right Up top I have our important papers binders, photos, keepsakes and scrapbooks.

 On the right side I have my cricut and two rolling wheel things for crafts and sewing machine. Oh and the baby swing my sis found on craigslist.
On the floor we have some exercise stuff!
