I decided not to divide her hair ties by color and grouped them together by what they are. Now I can just open the case and get what I need. I was worried that I wouldn't be able to get the colors I needed when I needed them, but the container is shallow enough that this system is working well.
Here is her drawer without the above container. Her conditioner spray, gel, brushes and combs just lay inside. I put all her bows, ribbons, and large hair items in the floral container. Her foam curlers are in the tin heart. I did keep one of the Ikea containers to keep her extra elastics in.

So, pictures to come soon. Some details you may want to know:
- 2300 square foot home
- 3 car garage
- Built in the '90s
- Seperate HUGE Shop, did I say HUGE, let me emphasize the HUGE FACTOR
- 1 1/2 acres
- Cosmetic Fixture
- Flag Lot
- Long Driveway
- Tree House
- Partially Fenced Yard
- Partial Walk Around Porch
- PORCH SWING!! (Probably, hands down, my favorite spot!)
- Gas and wood burning fireplace
So, of course it has land and the shop. The house isn't exactly what I would choose. (If you were wondering I would choose brand new, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, gorgeous fixtures, you get the idea.) BUT, we are planning to fix it up and get it the way that we want it. Steve has given me the thumbs up to do it the way I want it to be done! I have had to get use to the idea that it is all garages on the bottom floor and you have to walk up a flight of stairs to the front door. Definitely not my first chose, but it is growing on me. I'm liking the fact that it will be different then your "standard" home and excited for what we will do with it.
Well, that is about it. I have to get in packing mode!! I'm so not stressed about this move, not yet, but it will come. I don't know if that is good or bad. The stress gets me to work hard and get it done. I have had so many people offer to help and I am so grateful for it. So, we will be packing up and heading out.
Oh, if you were wondering. We are planning to rent our townhome out. Do you know anyone who would be interested in renting a 2100 sq ft townhouse??

Don't you think that all packages should come wrap and tied with string?? "Brown paper packages tied up with string..."

Me: Isabelle, please get in your carseat. (I've been trying to say please more!)
Isabelle: Why? (We do this everyday, repeatedly.)
Me: Because we are taking Jakob to school and you need to be buckled up.
Jakob: Mom, Karter's like an enemy.
Me: Like a what?
Jakob: An enemy?
Me: An enemy? What do you mean?
Jakob: You know, those things that we saw at the beach. The things that I touched.
Me: Oh, you mean an anemone.
Jakob: Yeah, an anemone.
Me: Why is he like an anemone?
Jakob: Because when he sucks his bottle he sucks really hard and won't let go.
Me: "Isabelle do you want to go to the zoo and see the elephants??"
Isabelle: (Said with wide eyes and excited voice.) "And the tigers. I like tigers!"
Karter: "Ah, dee, ah, ah, ah, da. Da, da, da-dee. Ha, ha, ha. Da-da. Ba, ba, ba, ba-ba-ba-ba-ba, ah. Ga, ga." (You get the idea, he is such a talker!!)
