Guilty updates

I have been the worst blogger on the planet. How bad you ask? So bad that my update that I am currently writing isn’t even going to have home pictures on it! I.Know… I’m terrible. But after talking with someone who actually reads my blog, I realized that I should probably pop a little update on here.

Soon to Come: Some things you can look forward from seeing from me soon. An update on the hallway, I know, it’s ridiculous. These 2 walls are the worst. BUT they are painted, so I need to get some pictures up for that. You’ll love it. It looks way Better, trust me. Area rugs and my obsession with them (that pretty much speaks for itself). We are about to get our new windows installed in our bathroom and kitchen. They are the only 2 that weren’t updated when we moved in, and part of the big ole grand finale of the bathroom remodel is getting windows that aren’t covered in mold. So there.

Also in May, put it on your schedule, I am getting the plumbing done. From there it’s a piece of cake…right…..RIGHT?!

So I promise I haven’t forgotten about you, internet, but sometimes life is overwhelming and telling the world that can be hard. I seem to be saying it outloud alot more often these days, but you could probably read more about that in my chorgie blog (like THAT’s getting updated HA!)

I’ll leave you with my typical tools:

Things needed for this project:

  • Sanity (priceless)
  • Time (free but running out)
  • motivation (hard to find)
  • Money (every day I’m hustling)
  • Reminders that I’m not alone!


Dos: Don’ts:
  • Remember what’s important
  • just sit around wishing for things to happen
  • Take some time for yourself
  • pretend walls paint themselves (OH! I painted my kitchen too by the way! )
  • Don’t start a project and not finish it
  • rely on anyone else to do the work
  • suck it up
  • whine (or wine)


I’m doing the homeshow with my work this weekend, so I hope to see tons of you there. This also means that I will get nothing personal done this week. So look for updates soon, but not too soon.
