that time … my closet went on a diet

I know what you’re thinking.  You cleaned your closet.  Here’s a medal.  (insert sarchasm….)

But all kidding aside, this time its a big deal.  Not only is cleaning out my closet a big deal, I’m going to tell you why its a big deal for you, too!

that time i….started spring off right

I’m linking up with AndreaNarci and Erika for our Friday Favorites this week!  If you are visiting from the linkup – welcome to my crazy neck of the woods (or suburbia – that’s more like it!)   I’d love for you to say hello in the comments!  And if you are wondering who I am, take a peek at my About Me.  If you REALLY like me, go ahead and add me to your Bloglovin account or Google Friend on the side there – yep, right there on the left side.
