Kitchen Cabinet Organization – Before and After
What a deliciously lazy Sunday!
My favorite thing: reading on the couch in the sunshine with a cup of coffee (or tea. or wine – just not in the morning ) Add to it, sleeping in an hour (which is still only 7:15 for me…lol) and a full belly, and I’d call it a pretty perfect morning.
How’s everyone’s weekends going so far? As I have been lately, I took a break from snapping pictures and just lived life. Friday Shane and I went out for Mexican and margaritas, yesterday I trained a little, shopped a LOT (food, home, and clothes shopping,) and then went out for dinner and drinks with another couple to one of our favorite restaurants in town for tapas and cocktails. So far, it’s been a great one
Before and After Pictures
OK, I lied. I did snap a couple photos. If you noticed, I also went shopping for the home…any guesses as to what for? Fine I’ll tell you. I went here:

Remember when I told you about my “problem areas” – in the kitchen? Well, messy, junky cabinets no more…

Before I went out and bought storage, I first got some inspiration on pinterest. Then, I measured – each side’s length, the depth, and the height top to bottom, and between each selves. Then, I got supplies.
I purchased a couple cabinet organizers at Bed Bath and Beyond (I had three 20% off’s!)
- two pull out baskets (only used one)
- One slotted rack holder (need another one)
- One corner stacking shelf
I am SO pleased with how they turned out.
Hopefully it will make me dread putting away pots and pans a little bit less
This morning – after lazing around on the couch – I took Niko for a long walk in a nearby park. We went on a trail that happens to go through ISU’s campus for about a half mile, and I cracked up laughing as we walked past a string of nice apartments, and then came to this in the front yard of one of them:
Nothing like a beer bong at 9 in the morning! I giggled and kept on walking. I live in the town of my alma mater (I moved here for school and ended up staying!) and I just love driving through campus sometimes. Seeing college students playing bags and drinking out of red solo cups in the front yard makes me so nostalgic! haha
Anyway, once we finished our walk, I then came home to make the breakfast I’d been promising Shane since yesterday.
Cheesy eggs with zucchini and spinach, maple chicken sausage, and pancakes.
Since I was on a waffle kick for so long, it’s been quite a long time since I’ve made pancakes.
They were delicious! And the iced green tea to wash it down was fabulous, too.
As I was finishing my second piece of sausage, I couldn’t stop a thought from popping in my head. It said, wow, Paige. This is a breakfast you’d eat after a long, 7+ mile run during half marathon training, not after an hour dog walk. I felt a pang of guilt for eating so much, but then I quickly sushed the negativity. It’s Sunday morning, and hey, that meal was a bonafied brunch. I’m sure it will keep me full all day long
Not sure what today will entail, but I know I’ve got some floors to clean and dirty clothes to wash. As I ever do on Sundays…
Have a great day, loves!
