A big thank you to my brother for helping me hang this gallery wall! We hung all the frames before Christmas but with the hustle & bustle of the holiday season, I decided to put off putting in any pictures until the new year. I'm working on getting those printed and hung and can't wait to show you all the final product! (Those chairs and table are actually returning to the living room now that the tree is gone. I'm debating doing something similar in this space or maybe adding a chaise lounge? Thoughts?)
I had some free time on Saturday so I curled my short hair for the first time! It turned out better than I expected :)
Saturday brought lots of errand running for me! I needed to pick up a few things plus I'm preparing to do a few blog giveaways and had to pick up some goodies for those :) I may or may not have bought another Christmas present (#andhave8moreathomealready)! I promise I do not Christmas shop all the time but there are so many good deals this time of the year that I normally pick up a few gifts I know I'll still love to give come December when I see them while I'm out! You can get such good gifts for good prices this way.
Starbucks & Target. Basic? Maybe, but in my world it's called Saturday perfection.
Jared had to work Saturday night so dinner with my family & a sleepover at their house was just what the doctor ordered for this girl :) Thanks for taking good care of me!
Sunday was filled with church, lots of errand running for my new project (more on that below) and a whole lot of relaxing and Blue Bloods!
Okay, first time homeowner problem here. When we purchased our home, the main bathroom was brown. I'm not a brown fan anyway but we're not talking a pretty brown. It HAD to go! First, we went with yellow. I love yellow but the rest of our house was blue & gray and it 1) didn't fit in, 2) almost looked fluorescent with the lighting for some reason and 3) when both of our families were at our house and I announced I wanted help changing it again and had plenty of volunteers I realized we all hated it! So, we went with the green you can see in this photo. This is the green we used in the guest bedroom which actually looks really good in there so we used it in the bathroom too. I liked it okay and it wasn't brown or yellow so at that point #winning.
Confession: I now hate the green. Grrr!! It just doesn't flow with that area of the house, I don't like how it blends with the countertop, etc and it just doesn't give me the tranquil feeling I think a girls bathroom should give. So now I am going to repaint the bathroom. Again. I'm leaning towards the color on the right. It's not super bright but it's dark enough it will not show wear and tear a lot and blue is very relaxing to me. I'm hoping to tackle this sometime this week! Stay tuned for a bathroom blog post showing the transformation from brown to hopefully a pretty blue in a bathroom I will finally decorate once I like the paint color :)
