Have you wondered where I’ve been? Ok, well, even if you haven’t, I’m here today to give up 5 random facts from my past 2 weeks. Then we’ll get back to that decorating stuff.
Random Fact #1– My “real” job got “really” overwhelming, so I took a little blogging break to cry. And cry I did.
Kinda like this, only I chewed all of my fingernails off first.
Random Fact #2– I
hate strongly dislike breaks from blogging. They make me feel stale and sad. So, what’s a girl to do??
I took a break from the “real” job, so I could hang out with you! (I love my real job, really I do, it’s just hard.)
Yep, that’s right, I’m on staycation this week, cleaning and tweaking and finishing projects, and tweaking some more.
THIS. IS. SO. FUN.
I tweaked my front door. This needs a little something, but I’m not sure what that is yet. There’s not enough pattern or color. Even though I adore polka dot washi tape. The little chalkboard on a stick is from Michael’s.
And I added some much needed color to my mantle. I’m hoping that if I pretend it’s spring, then it will be spring.
Random fact #3—I gave up spending money on Home Décor for Lent. It’s a good thing I always have a stash for “emergencies,” but we’ll be practicing a lot of “use what you have” tweaking for the rest of these 40 days and nights.
Random fact #4— My sweet husband gifted me with fully paid tuition to the Sheffield School of Interior Design for Valentine’s Day. I. am. so. excited. That guy really knows how to make a girl’s heart race.
So far, design school looks like this:
I’m pretty sure this is NOT what it’s supposed to look like, but I’ll get there. And I’ll get the floors dust mopped too. I have to, I promised the Fly Lady.
What, you say? How can I possibly go to design school, work crazy hours, blog, sell Living Lockets, and take care of four kids and two dogs? Easy peasy. Design school is like a treat on a dessert plate. You know how no matter how much you eat there’s always room for dessert?
Random Fact #5—I found a new to me blog this past weekend, and I read. the. whole. thing. Check out 5 Days 5 Ways, if you haven’t already. I want Abbie’s hair. and her abs. and her twins. and her insane talent with color. and her twins.
That’s all I got for today! Now back to laundry and tweaking. Have an awesome Tuesday!!
