cable & closets

Thursday was another busy day at Casa Verde! So busy that I didn't even have time to post about it until now! Besides me doing demos and making phone calls while working from home, the cable guy and the custom closet guys were here installing! I normally wouldn't be all that excited about cable being installed, but we tried living without it (for the past week) here at the new house, and it sucked! Without cable we had about 5 clear stations. Plus, with the TV lineup changing for the summer season, I had no idea what was coming on without the trusty cable guide! I don't think of myself as a big TV watcher, but I do enjoy watching a few shows while relaxing in the evening. And I definitely enjoy my reality shows on E!, MTV, TLC, Discovery, etc.

Getting cable hooked up really isn't exciting at all when it's followed by CUSTOM CLOSETS!! Our new house has a huge master bedroom closet, but all it had in it was one wire rack for hanging clothes. What a huge waste of space! Josh spoiled me before at our last house with an awesome closet, so in the new house, we had to do it too!

Before, with the single-hung racks, we had about 14 feet of hanging space, no drawers, and no shoe storage. Now, our closet has double-hung rods that give us 27 feet of hanging space, 12 drawers, and room for 40+ pairs of shoes! There is also a tie rack, a belt rack for our belts and my scarfs, and a valet rod! We don't have to have any dressers in our bedroom; the closet holds it all!

Isn't it beautiful!?!

Today, we got the pleasure of babysitting Cameron, while his parents went to see a movie! He was such a good boy! He played, drank a bottle, and even did a poopie! Cameron, you are welcome back any time!!


  1. OH MY GOSH! I want that closet! AWESOME! Glad you're making lots of progress. Cameron's super cute and it sounds like you had fun babysitting!

  2. *DROOL* your closet is so awesome! could you do me a favor and call base housing? apparently they think tiny accordion closets are the only option. i can't wait until the day we can build our own home and customize everything the way we want.
    i don't consider myself really a couch potato, but there are definitely a few shows i make sure to catch. our dvr definitely comes in handy!
    and cameron is such a cutie! sounds like you guys had a great time.

  3. I LOVE the closet :-) I have closet envy!!

  4. Love the closet, I need to get mine organized and now I am determined! Don't know how you lived without cable, I don't watch too much TV but I need the guide.

  5. The closet looks amazing!!


  6. Nicely done, closet looks great.

    Agreed on cable w/ the guide, it's almost a necessity. HBO/Showtime/etc not so much but the guide w/ a DVR is an absolute MUST!

    Cameron had a great time hangin' with his Auntie LoLo and Unkie Josh, he just couldn't stop drooling about it! :)

  7. I hear ya about the cable, sister! I don't think I'd be able to survive without it! Oh, and thank you again for babysitting Cam! He told me he had the best time ever with you guys!

  8. I love when Cam poops! =) Closets look amazing!

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
