30 day DIY projects!

So I'm on a DIY decorate your home kick. I love design, and it's the summer so I'm not stressed with school! Perfect time to decorate. Plus our house is a DISASTER right now so I need to clean/organize anyway. So here is my plan! Stay tuned for good ideas, inspiration, laughs, it's going to be a bumpy ride!

Day 1: Cleaning and Organizing
I wish I had a picture to show you how messy our 2nd bedroom is. RJ and I acknowledge this room as little as possible, we call it "the other bedroom", like it's haunted or something. It looks like a tornado threw up in there. I have some good ideas of how things can be more organized, so first I have to clean it! That's my goal for tonight, wish me luck because I'm going to be in there for hours. Plus I need to organize the rest of the house. Ugh just the thought of it makes me tired and want to take a break already.

Yup. RJ and I are training to run one. August 18. I'm scared out of my wits but even more scared for RJ because he has shin splints right now and can barely walk! I'm going to be the guy in the background here, crawling to the finish line. Ha! I just threw up a little thinking about it. 
 Or I'll be this guy.

Hello hello!

As you all know, I'm very passionate about service. I love helping out whenever I can, and right now our local Juvenile Justice Services (homeless shelter for youth basically) is in need... I want to do a donated goods drive to help them out!

Here's what's needed:

disposable diapers
baby formula
baby wipes
anything a baby needs

school supplies
fleece blankets, 72" x 90" for twin beds (+6 in if you are going to tie the edges)
blank homemade cards
twin sized quilts
friendship bracelets

And so much more, if you want to help with the cause please comment below! I want to get a lot of people involved in this so we can really make a difference! :)

Let me give you a tour of the beginning of the best days of my life

Ending Extreme Hunger for One Generation

   Poverty is something that I am very passionate about, and no one really knows about it. I am currently living in poverty as a part of my job position. This is on purpose- so I can better understand the demographic that I work with. 
   I was introduced to the Global Poverty Project about a week ago. It's an organization that's  committed to ending extreme global hunger for one generation. I am currently brainstorming ideas to raise some extra money so I can help with this cause, if you have any good ideas let me know! (and join me in the cause!)

One Month Panic

The big day is ONE MONTH AWAY!!! Oh my goodness! I'm so excited but I'm panicking at the same time! I have just about everything done, except I need reception decor still. I have taken it upon myself to do the reception decor, because no matter how many decorators I talk to, their stuff sucks for the price they give me. SO I'M ASKING EVERYONE FOR YOUR HELP! If you, family members, friends, ward members, anyone have something I can borrow it would be immensely appreciated. 
Here is a rough list of things I am looking for: 
antique-looking books

hanging votives

clear jewels (like fake diamonds that don't look too cheesy :)
mason jars (any size)
and most of all.... CANDLE PEDESTALS :/
