We Could Provide Headwear for A Small Country

Living in a house full of males, it's a no-brainer that I constantly deal with pee, boogers, farts and balls.  (Yes, I mean both kinds.  Sports balls--footballs, baseballs, etc...and testicles.)

But there's something else as well.  One particular item that is threatening to overtake my Trenches.

The hats.
24 in here (in the dining room!)

3 here (in Eldest's bedroom)

18 of Hubby's here (in our bedroom)...

..and 5 here hanging from the bed post.

6 more in here.

And we can't leave out the old skool plastic batting helmets from Hubby's childhood that adorn the playroom bookcase now, can we?

And yet Hubby dares to make fun of my measly little shoe-buying habit?

Pshaw.
(For the record, this is not really my shoe closet. Although I wish it was.)

I thought for a second that was your real shoe closet...damn that would be nice! Just a question....how many of those hats of your husbands are from like 10yrs ago? Maybe he should weed some out? haha

Props for Best Use of Baskets! They are my savior as well for the un-catalogue-able!

With girls, I've got little stashes of hair accessories everywhere - barettes, bows, ribbon, headbands, bobby pins, etc. Thankfully, they take up far less square footage than your ever growing collection of hats :)

Holy hats. I'm glad my boyfriend is a 'one hat at a time' kind of guy. Although I would enjoy the challenge of trying to organize them nicely if I had a bunch.

Holy crap look at all those shoes. Certainly lots of hats too but you at least have yours neat and orderly

Jen said...

In case you didn't notice, that is a lot of hats. You totally should have at least that many shoes, probably double because you have 2 feet.

I wish I had that show closet too. Makes my heart happy.

For the record--I want that shoe closet, too. With the shoes.

I have a house full of girls, so we don't have the hat invasion that you do. I wish we did--instead, we have shoes. By the door. So you can't get outside or inside without tripping over them. Flip-flops of every color and size, heels, sandals, sneakers, even boots (?!?!?-it's summer!). Then there are the clothes--no one can just wear one outfit a day--no, we have to have something in the morning and something in the afternoon, plus the bathing suits, plus the pajamas--and they all go straight to the floor in the bathroom, the laundry room, their bedrooms, the stairs. And the bottles of nail polish....

I'll see your hats for purses. :-)
