what's in my closet--listicles

Stasha at Northwest Mommy hosts Listicles every week and I usually pick and choose which ones I participate in.  This week sounded good--10 things in your closet.  Oh gosh!  Do you really want to go there?  Scary stuff.  But I did.  I went there and here are the good, bad and the ugly things in my closet.

1.  My wedding dress.  Yes, I still have it.  I have no idea if I still fit into it or not.  Probably.  I also have the veil, earrings and necklace I wore.  It didn't have it professionally sealed so it's a little ercu colored instead of it's original white. 

2.  Guns.  Technically not mine, but they are in my closet.  You never know when you might need a gun.  No idea where the bullets are though. 

3.  Also seen in the above picture--a box of clothes my husband hasn't even unpacked since we moved in this house almost 4 years ago.  I suppose that means I should bring them to Goodwill, right?  But no.  This is the husband that keeps everything.  Gah.  Oh, and the dress shoes that he wears only to funerals.

4.  Coach purses that I don't use anymore.  I had another black Coach purse that when I stopped using it, my husband stole it for his ammo.  It's the nicest bullet holder you will ever find.  He is one stylish hunter.

5.  A screen from the window that we took out to put the air conditioner in.  But never put back once the air conditioner came out.  Thankfully, it tucks up nicely against the closet wall and isn't in the way at all.

6.  A box of arrowheads and paint rocks I bought for Girl Scouts and never used and then was going to use it for geocaching but that never happened either so there it sits, 6 years later, in my closet. (The cardboard box on the left.)

7.  Also seen in above photo--my excellent housekeeping skills. 

8.  Two bins of summer clothes that haven't seen the light of day in close to 2 years.  Again, I should just bring the whole lot of it to Goodwill and start over.

9.  Sweaters lining the top shelf that I never wear anymore because it's always too hot at work.  There used to be a kid's guitar that some really nice babysitter gave to us when she was cleaning out her stuff.  yes, thanks.  The kids drove me crazy strumming that thing for about a day until I finally stashed it in the top of my closet.  There it sat for 2 years until I finally donated it to the school music program a month ago. 

10.  In that hanging shoe rack are a really cool pair of cowboy boots I got when I was in Dallas 17+ years ago.  I paid way too much money for them but I love them.

And that, my friends, is what I have in my closet.  No skeletons.  Just a lot of crap.  How about you?

Bwahaha! I am cracking UP that your hubs uses your Coach purse for ammo - that is greatness!
My closet is ver clean and organized, not much hiding in there. But I'm out of blog ideas so I might have to do this one!

Hilarious that he uses a Coach purse for ammo! Love it! Your closet is so much more organized than mine!

I've got the old Coach purses too! Why can't I give them away?? I've got a Coach cell phone case that is totally hilarious. Guess they had no idea how quickly technology would advance.

My race medals are in my closet. Also a small flower girl dress from when I was in second grade--maybe my daughter will wear it someday?? (Doubtful--the 80s are long over.) And also many things confiscated from the kids.

You crack me up. That coach ammo holder might fetch a whole lot on EBay ;)

I don't think I've ever worked at a place where it was too hot; I'm always freezing and work and generally have a sweater even when it's 100°F outside.
