New faucets

New faucets

I know I mentioned last week that we bought new faucets and even changed a few out but I haven’t posted pics.  So here goes.  But first let me just say: Dear Plumber, while I appreciate the fact that you took pride in your work, for the love of god why did you make all the fittings so damn tight?!?!?!?  Seriously as a woman there was no way I was going to get these fittings off.  Next time please remember…

I like owls

I like owls

For some weird reason, lately I am really digging owls.  Hence the new blog header.  🙂  Today I was browsing Etsy and I found some cute owl prints.  They are printed on old dictionary paper.  I think I’m in love.  I have no idea where I would put them but they are just so cute. I really need to get back in the swing of decorating.  I’ve said it numerous times but I really need to start making Matt’s house…

I’ve been shopping

Today at lunch I went to one of my fave lunch time spots, yep Carolina Pottery.  I actually only set out to buy my big vase, you may remember this post, and to get an NC State blanket for the new car.  I decided I had put off my new vase long enough and Matt and I wanted a blanket to keep in the car for tailgating.  Not that I think we will do a lot of sitting in the…

You light up my house?

You light up my house?

Literally Matt lit up our house this weekend, with lights.  For a while now I’ve wanted to replace the lighting through out the house.  Most of our fixtures were these yucky old gold fixtures.  I knew it wouldn’t take a lot to replace them so once we had more cash back from AMEX Matt ordered our gift cards to Lowes. On Saturday we went and picked out our new lights.  We got new outside lights, lights for the foyer, hallway…

The short list

The short list

It’s only Tuesday and I feel like this week is already dragging.  I’m sure it doesn’t help that our system at work is having on by the proverbial thread.  I keep waiting for it to just die! Today at lunch I ran to Carolina Pottery {you see a pattern starting} to look for rugs.  I am determined to replace the rug in our living room.  It doesn’t really go with my “decor” vision.  🙂  Honestly I’m not really sure what…

I just need fabric!

I just need fabric!

Last weekend Matt and I ended up going over to Triangle Town Center mall.  There’s not a whole lot there but they have this really awesome store called ZGallerie.  I love to go in this store and look around.  I would love to buy some of there stuff but it’s a little pricey and I’m not sure how Matt would feel coming home to some of the items they have.  Of course I think it is all fantastic.  🙂 Anyway,…
