ONE This weekend, Michael and I both had trouble sleeping in. Each day, we woke up before 7am, which I deemed completely crazy. BUT, there is something to be said for getting so much done on a weekend morning and feeling like you have the rest of the day left in front of you!
TWO Lots of planning for our wedding has been going on and for the most part – I’ve quickly learned that it’s not my thing. I’ve been putting most of it off, but thankfully, my maid of honor is an aspiring wedding planner and loves organizing, so it’s been nice to bounce ideas around with her! We finally are close to fully deciding on the table top decorations, so I started thrifting glassware to match. Gotta love when you can get these beauties for under $3 a pop.
THREE At some point last week, I knocked over the vase of flowers Michael had given me awhile back. It was a crazy 5 seconds where I scrambled to pick up pieces on the floor so that Walter couldn’t get at them ( he loves leaves ). The good news is that when I finally had everything back on my desk, the mess was quite pretty. Funny how a quick struggle in the middle of a boring day could offer a new outlook.
FOUR This is a sneak peak of our dining room so far! I ordered some bistro lights to drape in there ( gotta figure out where ) and am planning on finding a skinny bar cart for behind the table. I’m hoping to thrift this, but am definitely open to ideas if you’ve seen some amazing ones floating around the web. Gold please!
FIVE While we’ve been putting the finishing touches on a few rooms in our house, I’ve gotten a bit impatient with my office. For some reason, I decided that it would be one of the last things we tackle, despite the many hours I spend in there. Oops. I have a bunch of fun paper cut outs / items stored away that I’m itching to put up! Because right now, my office is beige on beige on beige with NOTHING on the walls. Bummer.
SIX On a run to Home Depot last week, I got stuck checking out all of their plants … and ended up bringing home this little ( big ) guy. Day by day, we’ve been adding new touches to our living room and it’s quickly become my favorite place to be. There’s a ton of greenery + neutral colors and overall, it’s been an interesting ride in discovering our style. More to come!!
