10 Minutes. And a little more to finish it up!

Thank you to Angie of Seriously a Homemaker for the suggestion and motivation to do this! My husband unexpectedly came home for a late lunch today and he was impressed. :)

After a weekend of us all being home most of the time and me not wanting to clean so I could spend time with hubby and the kiddos my kitchen was REALLY suffering! I'm pretty embarrassed to even post the before pictures, but here goes!

One big (little) mess.

Exactly 10 minutes to kick its butt.

I have to admit, I cheated a little. I got most of it done in the ten minutes, but I unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher afterward. I also had to managed J while I was cleaning so I figured that made it ok to cheat. He kept wanting down, then up, then down so that definitely added to the total amount of work needing to be done.

Pictures to prove it.

Walk away feeling like a rock star!

I have to show you what happened while I was focusing on the counters...



  1. Hahaha, awww, Nina! I feel your pain. It looks great, though!

  4. bwa ha ha! that's awesome! you know what? i love the name of your blog! sometimes when walking through the house and seeing MESS everywhere, i say to myself, "DAnG EnTROPY!" I don't know why that word stuck with me from science class waaaay back, but I sure have a distate for entropy.

    Also, what would your life be like if the "n" on your computer keyboard stopped working? It would be like this: every time you eed to type the letter "" it just simply does't appear, so you have to copy ad paste it i from aother locatio o the page, ad therefore, typig becomes a real challege ad a real drag. Therefore, you should be feelig perty dag good that I spet this 45 miutes of my day typig this commet! I have to go ow.
