I am currently dreaming….

I am currently dreaming….

of a new bed.  Hehe!  For a while now I’ve wanted new bedroom furniture but after paying for carpet I don’t think buying a full set is in the cards.  However, I think I’ve convinced Matt to buy a new bed.  He really wants a King size bed and I really want a Tempurpedic mattress (not a real one because those things are $$$$ but a nice fake one from Ikea would do.) Currently I have my eye on a…

Guest bathroom – a sort of makeover

Guest bathroom – a sort of makeover

Over the weekend I was apparently super productive, okay not really but from the pics it looks like I was. 😉  A few weeks ago I decided I wanted a new shower curtain for the guest bathroom.  I cannot, for the life of me, figure out what color I want to paint the guest bathroom so I decided a new shower curtain might help.  Don’t get me wrong, I liked the one I had, but I just wasn’t really digging…

In the closet

In the closet

I think I mentioned in my carpet post that I had plans to rearrange the closet when we got everything back in order.  Well I did just that on Saturday.  We bought a shoe holder shelf for the closet and I’ve been waiting for Matt to put it in before we moved everything back to the closet. The shelf we bought turned out to be a little too big for the closet so Matt cut in down and then installed…

Our weekend – in pics

Our weekend – in pics

Okay so I really have no inspiration right now so you get videos and pics!  😉  But in my defense we did a lot this weekend and I think pics are really the less boring way to get through this. As I mentioned we bought a new patio set and I love it!  It is just what we needed.  The deck isn’t that big so we didn’t need a really big set.  In fact I don’t think we really even…

For your viewing pleasure!

For your viewing pleasure!

Matt and I were super busy this weekend. We got the guest room painted, bought a new patio set, and I planted some flowers out front. But it appears we have some leaky toilets so instead of showing you all the cool stuff we did I’m going to post a video of Julio sporting his new harness. Dumbass channeled his inner Puss in Boots and jumped off the deck Friday night. It’s only about 15 feet to the ground. Thankfully…

A splash of color

A splash of color

I came home to a nicely painted house Friday afternoon.  Can I just say how nice it is to have this done?  It probably would have taken me and Matt quite a while to paint the whole area.  So it was really nice to go to work and come home to everything painted.  I’m not sure you can really see the color in the pics but I will post a few.  It’s a subtle difference but I think it really…

Cuts and Color

Cuts and Color

This week has been crazy busy and isn’t going to slow down I don’t think.  Last night I got my hair cut.  I am really like the new stylist I am going to.  For a few weeks I’ve been eyeing this really cute cut I found on Pinterest.  It’s basically just a long bob but it’s adorable.  For the longest time I’ve been in “grow out” mode with my hair.  It finally hit me, it doesn’t matter if it’s long…

Toilets and fixtures

Toilets and fixtures

About a year and a half ago our upstairs (and by upstairs I mean our main floor) toilet began to leak.  One weekend while Matt’s parents were up he and his dad decided to fix the toilet.  They took the tank off to replace the seal.  As they were putting it back on Matt over tightened one of the nuts and BAM!  A corner of the tank broke off.  I was sitting in the den when I heard a THUD,…
