Wow!!! I can't believe it has been a week already. Man, this growing up stuff makes the days just fly by!

The highlights of my week thus far! Keep in mind my Friday is Sunday night. Our weekend is Monday - Wednesday.

1. The table is finished! Oh yeah! Looks great! Mo wants to add another coat of poly on the top and I want to distress the legs a little. Make it more beach white. If that makes sense. All in due time.

2. Lil' man's room is 97% finished. Just need to hang up one more decoration and everything else that needs to be done will be on my oh so loving husbands shoulders. :) i.e. refinishing the toy box, crates for his dresser, book shelves behind the door.

3. Used my food processor. Made some baby food and made a delicious dip. I'll post that very soon. I think I will try to make my famous carrot cake next. I honestly can't wait to not have to hand shred carrots.

4. I've figured out how I'm going to do the master bedroom curtains. My plan is to use ::drum roll please:: drop cloth. Yeah, the stuff they put on the floor to catch paint. Super cool, right? My idea is to make an ombré curtain in brown. So chocolate to the natural drop cloth color. I will probably have to put some blackout fabric on the back of it. Since Mo is a night dweller. lol. He works nights and sleeps in the daytime. When I make it it I will for sure make a post about that.

5. I have some new goals coming up. I'm going to make a post about those goals I need some accountability in my life. ;)

So how has your week been?!
Leave me a comment and let me know y'all!

brittany bucks

So I hate packing and unpacking. True story.

Who doesn't, right?!

I will pay someone one million Brittany bucks to finish all the unpacking and organizing. I just want it all done. Like .:poof:. All done.

Doesn't work that way. :/

*also... Brittany bucks are redeemable for smiles and pats on the back. :) maybe I could throw in a thumbs up too for good measure.

Yes, I'm using my unfinished wood table. Yes, my dogs are asleep on couch. My new house doesn't feel like home yet. :(.

Oh and yes I am procrastinating!

H54F! 3/15

Hola! So I'm just checking in real quick in between the madness.

1. We've been in the new house a week tomorrow! Wow! Time has flown by. I feel like nothing is done but I know I'm getting somewhere.

2. My wonderful amazing husband bought me KitchenAid 13 cup food processor. I found it for half price because it is "refurbished". Score!

3. Well, this is probably last week but I'm still excited... We went to drop off stuff to donate at a local charity thrift store. We usually don't go in but today I felt the need. On this special wonderful day I found an soft serve ice cream maker. BRAND NEW!!! Just been opened. Okay it was missing a stupid little piece that is nothing but an extra. But you can tell it has never been used. Anyway. I had my eye on it for a while but it is usually 100 buckaroos. Couldn't justify that. This time it was 39.99 plus it all went to an amazing charity. Can't beat that!

4. You'd better redneckanize. Lol. I wish I had a picture but my husband is building us a new table and benches for out kitchen table. As of this morning it is no longer sitting in my kitchen on sawhorses. So many different projects going on at once.

5. We cancelled our cable. I'm excited about this. It is still a little rough right now but we will get used to it. I did download Hulu so hopefully that'll help.

So that is semi what is going on. So much really. Completely overwhelmed and procrastinating.

A lot of awesome things of DIY and recipes will be coming up once we are all unpacked.


.: so I can't help is a picture of Harold:.
