What is it about having people over that makes me want to change things up/build things/clean things? I don't know, but I'm kind of enjoying it. We built a bench (and I stained it yesterday!)
The stain is darker then we expected but I still like it!

And now I've taken all of the pictures off the wall and gathered up a few frames that aren't being used and am going to replace old pictures with newer ones, paint the frames to have a more matchy-matchy look and re-arrange them on the wall
this is the mess that sits on my kitchen table at the moment....

And on top of those things, I'm going to be landscaping a bit in our front yard (finally! almost a year and a half after we moved in!) and planting flowers in the backyard.

It's going to be a very fun (and busy!) two weeks! Hooray for inviting people over and feeling the need to change things up!

In other news, I've lost 11 pounds!!!! HOORAY!!!

Anything exiting in your neck of the woods?


  1. I have been keeping up with your blog through fb, it is really darling! I am the same way with wanting to change things up a ton when I'm expecting company. It gives me the motivation I need to get going! Congrats on the weight loss too . . . good for you!

  2. Congratulations Em, on everything! Looking forward to coming over and seeing the changes. So proud of you!! Love you tons!! Your Mama

  3. I agree. It gives me that push to do things that I've been wanting to do. It's also easier to convince the other members of my household that it is absolutely vital that this get done before whoever is coming.
