Happy Friday!!!  How was your week???  Mine was pretty hectic, but it’s a nice feeling knowing that we are officially homeowners!

the official homeowners
homeowners!  and yes, that bench is going.  anyone want it???

Who knew that we would be painting our house for four days straight (and we’re still only about halfway done)?!  On top of that and some minor renovation projects, Hubbs and I have been working non-stop.  Never mind having to try and find a job on top of all that!  Fingers crossed!

Renovations In Progress

(If you want to stay updated on our home renovations, be sure to follow me on Instagram!)

I shot my very first YouTube video from our new house, in my pretty little office.  Or, well, what is going to be my pretty little office!  I can’t find my tripod yet, so I shot the video using my pink chair as a tripod, and against my currently bare (yet painted!) wall.  So, there’s nothing really interesting in the background yet, but it’s getting there!

Despite all this work, I did take a moment to do some shopping, and I was excited for my little treats to arrive so quickly!

i got the most adorable leather wrap bracelet, and an engraved iphone case!

This weekend, I will finally get to relax a bit!  Saturday I will be attending a dear friend’s daughter’s birthday party for a bit, then spending some time with friends over dinner that night.  Then on Sunday, my parents are having my family over for Sunday dinner – something I haven’t been able to do in a long time living so far away!

beer and wine

Have a great weekend!

  • Always Maylee

    Seriously, painting takes way longer than you think! Especially if you make the husband re-paint an entire room because you change your mind about the color, haha, oops. Don’t do that. :)

    You guys are more than welcome to come paint my house too! When we moved in, I got this small office and I did paint that… what a pain in my butt! On top of that, I didn’t even do a good job.

  • Kate

    House painting is not quick, and I’ve never really found it fun… but it’s so rewarding when you’re done! I’m excited to see all of your renovations! Following you on Bloglovin!
