Goodbye Georgia, Hello Florida

I know, I know, I know.  I’ve been an absent blogger for longer than I care to admit.  Let me cut to the chase… we moved and a whole bunch of others things happened in between.  Long story short, life has rerouted us back to sunny Florida and we recently said goodbye to sweet southern Georgia.

I find goodbyes difficult, very difficult.  It probably has to do with my resistance to change.  While moving back to Florida has brought excitement of reuniting with friends & family, it has also brought sadness as we left what we grew to love over the last two years.  I’ll adjust, but until then, here’s a list I typed the last night I slept in the peach state…

Goodbye David Weekley EnergySaver Home, you’re the first (and probably the only) house we built.  Many were the memories of laughter and joy within these walls.  You will be forever remembered as a once-in-a-lifetime experience and the catalyst that started this blog.

Building our first David Weekley Energy Efficient Home

Goodbye blue ceiling in the master bedroom.  I loved every unique facet about you, as far as what a ceiling can offer.

Painted ceiling in Useful Beautiful Home

Goodbye dreamy white kitchen.  You’ve served us well and allowed for many guests to dine in our household.  Once I was asked what I loved most about my home and I answered, “my kitchen!” without hesitation.  If I could take one room with me, it would be you.

David Weekley white kitchen and backsplash

And another shot, just because…

Useful Beautiful Home GA kitchen

Goodbye double turn wooden staircase with a princess castle underneath.  None will compare to the fun you brought our family, especially the youngest member.  I love your hand-stained wooden steps, extra turn, and hidden castle gem.  How much can you love a set of stairs?  A lot, I tell you, definitely a lot!  (I’m still searching for a picture of the stairway/castle)

Goodbye family room windows.  We share a significant memory – the Atlanta winter ice storm of 2014 and a warm blanket.  Remember how I parked myself next to you for 10 hours waiting and praying for the man of the house to make it home safely?  Okay, I didn’t actually sit next to you for the entire 10 hours straight, but I was never far from you that night.

Goodbye GA watermarked window-1

Goodbye crazy steep driveway.  You were a conversation piece for any car-driving visitor.  From good friends to solicitors alike, you came up in many a conversations.  I was never a fan of your incline, but even the drawbacks of this house are memorable and worth mentioning.  

Goodbye sweet neighborhood filled with dynamic neighbors.  I enjoyed every minute of being the Social Committee leader.  The chance to make all kinds of friendships and throw neighborhood-wide parties was unforgettable.  And although it had nothing to do with the Social Committee, I’m a Bunko fan for life now!

Goodbye security gates that broke on a regular basis.  You looked nice unless you were broken at the hinge.  You gave absolutely everyone in our hood a common denominator to discuss.  If awkward pauses arose, your brokenness was there to fill the gaps.

Front neighborhood gates

Goodbye Marietta, GA.  As far as I’m concerned, YOU are the best city in the South (seriously people, go visit this tourist destination).  You’re close enough to Atlanta but far enough to feel like a home town.  You’re filled with old-time family roots and deep history.  You have charm, oh soooo much charm within your beautiful down town.  I will miss “The Square” we visited two to three times a week, rain or shine.  We were close enough to walk to you and enjoyed almost every public event you offered.  Hands down you have the best Farmer’s Market and local fare of any city, with it running 11 out of 12 months a year.  Other cities should pattern themselves after your example.  Yes, I’m in love with you Marietta and will leave a tiny piece of my heart in your beautiful city.  I’ll be back, we’ll always make it a point to go back and visit!

Goodbye precious church family.  You’ve been a welcoming friend from the moment we entered your doors but you didn’t stop there.  You encouraged our spiritual growth and taught us vividly by the walk you walk.  We’re grateful, thankful, blessed and beyond by your influence in our lives.  Yes, Faith Community Church, we will be back to visit each time we travel through your neck of the Georgian woods.  How thankful I am for the internet to listen to your spot-on teaching (listen HERE) and keep in touch with treasured friendships via FB.  You made the biggest impression on our hearts during the two short years we lived in Georgia.  Never grow weary in doing good, for it’s easy to underestimate the impact of being doers not just hearers.

Goodbye beautiful Georgia nature.  Although  my daughter was allergic to all four of your seasons, your sights were nothing short of breathtaking.  We especially enjoyed our mini hikes up Kennesaw Mountain, bigger hikes up Stone Mountain Park, and apple picking at R&A Orchards in Ellijay, GA.

Goodbye GA trails and mountains

There you have it, my list of goodbyes.  Most of these things are just things; some big and some small but things nonetheless.  After reminding myself of that, I find a heart of thankfulness for that which I can take; memories and friendships and future weekend visits.  Yes, our 2 years in Georgia were a blessing and a growth-inducing snippet in life.  If given the chance, we wouldn’t change it for anything.  Hope to see you soon dearest GA friends!


Organizing a Top-Freezer

Happy weekend!

This past week I worked on organizing my friend’s top-freezer in her kitchen.  It was a blast, probably because friendship – and children playing together nicely – makes any project go by quickly.

Organizing the Top Freezer

I spent two afternoons with her and a few trips to one of my favorite stores, The Container Store.  I hadn’t been there in a while and if I wasn’t focused on finishing Mollie’s freezer, I may have gotten swept away in their giant Spring Organization Sale going on now.  But I remained strong (ha!) and powered through.

If you’re looking to organize a top-freezer, then please click HERE to read all about my endeavors at I’m an Organizing Junkie.  You’ve gotta go check out the “before” and “after” photos.  I think the final outcome turned out great!

Oh, and I can’t forget to mention a great big huge thank you to Mollie!  She let me snap photos of her unorganized freezer, post them on the world wide web, and then rearrange all her freezer contents.  It’s hard to be so vulnerable with a “trouble spot”.  But, we all have ‘em and I thank Mollie for sharing hers!  I also have to thank her for making the yummiest batch of red velvet cookies to enjoy after our hard work.  I only had one, but I could have eaten the whole batch if I weren’t being polite. :)

Red Velvet cookies

This organizing was brought to you by YOU!  It never hurts to make a request.  I wouldn’t have thought to organize a top-freezer because I don’t own one.  Thanks to a few friendly comments at on my last two freezer posts (HERE and HERE), I was able to present another freezer addition in my mini series.  So, please continue to mention your thoughts as they are a great resource to draw from!  Who knows, maybe you’ll be my next organizing victim project. :)


Simple Spice Organization

Happy Hump Day!  I have another lovely post from my sweet friend, Morgan.  If you need a little organizing motivation to tackle your spice cabinet, then look no further!  She has some awesome tips to share and many beautiful pictures to bring you an extra dose of spicy inspiration.  My favorite tip she shares is identifying the expiration date, so read below to find out more!  


Organizing can be simple, I promise.

Today I’m sharing with you how to do a quick organizing project. (The best kind because you get instant results!) This is the sort of project you can even do while cooking dinner. I love to multi task (appropriately) and get little things done in the midst of my other daily activities.

So next time you are whipping up a meal, take this simple project and run with it! It’ll put some spice back into your life! (*Note that it’s a three-part project but each part shouldn’t take more than about 15 minutes.)


Part One: Clean, Inventory and make a Shopping List.

Pull all of your spices out and evaluate which spices need to be replenished and which spices you need to toss. Here is a “before” picture of my spices that needed some attention. Curious how I organize my spices? You can see my plan of attack over here.


Check expiration dates and also be realistic about holding on to spices that you have had forever, but never actually use. Also be sure to clean and wipe down the containers, trays and cupboards.


Here were three spices that I had not used in over a year. They were unopened. Following my philosophy of less IS more, I donated them to our food drive at church (they were still within their expiration dates.) There is just no need to keep things you don’t use.

As you are going through and taking inventory, make a list of all of the essential spices that you need to buy.

Part Two: Shop for your new spices.

Be sure to only stock up and replenish the spices that you use regularly and check the expiration dates too.


Part Three: Restock and Organize.

When I brought my new spices home I added a bright-colored sticker with the expiration date on the spice bottles. Just to help me in the future as I rotate and refill things. (Most spices have an expiration date, if you are not sure here is a great resource that will help give you more info on the shelf life for spices.)



I have a lot of containers that I re-fill so I use this storage box to hold my “extras.” It works really well. I make sure to check here before I make a shopping list. It’s my spicy backstock. :)


I used some of my extra containers from my teacher gifts to hold my extra salt and pepper. I was amazed at how much room I gained by cleaning things up! Ahhhh….the feeling of order.

Here are the trays in all of their awesomeness. (I have also recently separated my sweet and savory spices.)




And the overview…




Simple right?

And now you’ll be stocked up with your spices for all of those upcoming recipes. Mark this on your calendar and try to do this every six months. It will minimize running out of spices when you need them. Also be sure to be discerning with the spices that you buy. (I often will omit a spice for a new recipe just because I don’t want to invest in an uncommon spice for a recipe that I’m not even sure about.)

What’s your favorite spice?

I’m a curry girl. (It’s what makes my Yumm sauce so fantastic!)

Playing Catch-Up

Oh my goodness dear friends!  Oh. My. Goodness!  I’ve been swamped behind the scenes here at UBH and haven’t touched my site in days.  It’s been a mix of unexpected out-of-town traveling, personal grieving from my sweet Grandmother’s recent passing away (yes, that has been very difficult), and a bunch of secrets I can’t wait to share with you!  But, the secrets have to wait a little longer.  There are some serious changes on the immediate horizon but I just can’t talk about it quite yet.  I’m about to burst at the seams.  Anyone else terrible at keeping fun secrets???  Every Christmas I nearly go crazy not sharing my gifts until the 25th.  :)

So…. there’s much to talk about and nothing to say right now.  A few weeks and I’ll be spilling the beans but for now, please know that I’m busy beyond the imaginable.  I practically fall into bed exhausted every night from busy days getting things “done”.  On the bright side, I have loads and loads of picture ammo and organizing/decorating posts brewing in my WordPress files.  Can’t wait to show you!

I’m here, I’m alive, and I have a couple posts for you to catch-up on at I’m an Organizing Junkie.  I forgot to mention my latest two contributions, both about organizing a kitchen side-by-side freezer.  Click the 2 separate links below to read…
