Adam is on a company trip in Las Vegas. . . poor guy.
I had opted out of the trip because it was during the week and I didn’t want our son to miss school.
*Enter audible sigh here*
This is an obvious ‘first-time-school-mom” mistake. It NEVER occurred to me that my son might have a “fall-break” in the middle of OCTOBER! Alas, he does.
So, as it turns out, my husband’s trip coincided PERFECTLY with my son’s school break.
Aaah, C’est la vie.
I’m not a huge vegas fan anyway, plus Adam took his office manager instead, who has TOTALLY earned this trip, so I’m happy.
Therefore, instead of going to Vegas I’m taking this husband/school-less week to get so stuff DONE.
Yesterday I went around the house hanging up different pieces of art.
I’ve been hesitant to commit to hanging anything for two reasons: First is simply that I tend to change my mind a LOT.
It’s not called “Habitual Metamorphosis” for nothing.
Second, we are planning on living in this home for the long haul, and we JUST painted, I don’t wanna start bustin’ holes in these walls all willy-nilly. I want a plan.
Anyhow, we’ve been here a while, and I think I’m getting an idea of where I want things. . . so it’s time.
Here’s some before and afters:
Before. Messy kitchen, open fridge, left-over take-out, etcetera.
And the after, kitchen still very messy.
Then again, in the bedroom:
I hung a few other pieces,
But there are MANY more pictures to go:
On hold for the moment. We’ve got some new furniture on the way, too.
Man, all I wanna do right now is decorate this house. I’ve been waiting and waiting for the opportunity to really grab hold of a space and make it ours. And the bones of this house are PERFECT for me. I’m very happy.
Like a kid in a candy store.
Prepare yourself, there’s just more projects on the horizon.
Gun’s are out!
