Trevor went to the eye dr and we now know that his right eye is nearsighted
(-9) and he will need glasses. Later the dr. wants to do some patching to strengthen that eye and she thinks his eyesight will improve a little bit as he grows older. So this week we also get to try to get him in to pick his glasses out. It has definitely been a crazy month so far and I hope there aren't too many more surprises around the corner. I feel exhausted already just thinking about it.

|Okay so here's the story history behind our trip. Ten years ago today Joe and I were married in the Portland temple. On the way there, my brother and his family were in a car accident and lets just say we were kind of in a hurry to get back to see how they were doing . So we didn't ever do a honeymoon or anything. And since we haven't been back to the Portland temple since then...well I was determined that to celebrate surviving 10 years with each other-we ought to return and create new memories on a 2nd chance honeymoon trip!! This is the first trip we have gone on that was just the two of us since having kids (unless you count the overnighter in Spokane for a job interview 4 years ago). So Last Wednesday night we headed to my parents-where we dropped off our kiddos and then we were on our way. Here is part 1 of our trip-I still have to upload the rest of the pictures...But these are days 1 and 2. Day 3 will be in part 2 which I will add later this week-so check back. Some pictures weren't the best as our camera died on us after half way through day 2 and we had to use joe's ipad from work to take the rest...not the best quality photos..but at least we got to capture some memories!!|

1. Throw in Tennis balls (newones-not ones that have been used outside or as a pet toy-obviously)
2. Just throw in 1/4 -1/2 cup white distilled vinegar in the last rinse cycle in the washer. Some women put it in those downy balls-so they don't have to wait around for that cycle to come up.
3. Dilute fabric softener in some water -soak a clean sponge in it, wring it out and throw in dryer.
4. Put 2-3 balls of aluminum foil in dryer with laundry.
I did #2 because it was the most convenient thing i had on hand..and it really did well. Except on our whites-everything was soft but still some static. All in all still a good way to keep laundry going.
I've heard somewhere that dryer sheets are made of animal fat-if you are into animal rights-then please use the above ideas!! The Vinegar is also a great way to help remove any soap residue lingering on your clothes.

Paper clutter: I love this idea from Chic on a shoestring... using a decorative basket for a filing system:
And for the Bathroom-makeup or odds and ends-This one is a space saver!
Ooh and for books --they are all over the place all of the time. I like the idea of putting the books together by theme into bins like on the right.And ofcourse my two best friend in this process will be these guys:
Wish Me LUCK!!
