It's been 3 long weeks but I finally have Internet! I feel like I fell off the face of the earth . . . . . it was kind of nice, me and Lee just running around the house, eating breakfast at new restaurants, going to home depot, checking out new stores, going to home depot again (last night we walked in and the greeter said hi MAX, you know you've been to home depot too much when they know your dog's name).
But I'm so glad to be back!!!
I was just reading my last post. The one where everything was falling beautifully into place and nothing went wrong, well, lets just say the honeymoon is OVER!
I promptly scratched the top of our new washer and dryer the first load of laundry I did. The laundry machines don't cover the water pipes so we had to buy the pedestals for the machines (probably a good thing since we're both tall) but at an extra $400 ouch! and they aren't in stock until the end of the month. The bracket for the T.V. was missing half of the hardware, so back in the car for the 1 hour drive back to the store. The sconces I bought for above the fireplace are way too small, and the next ones I bought were way to big, third times the charm, NOT they were all wrong too.
Bought the wrong sealer for the granite.
And Last but definitely not least, the dog got sick all over the brand new couch this morning, while the cable installer was sitting on it, kind of funny, I thought the poor man was going to be sick too :) but definitely a bummer!
oh and someone got a poo shoe (enough said)!
There has also been lots of great things going on too.
I found the perfect clock for our living room.
Bought the right granite sealer and now the counters look great!
Figured out the perfect place to store my cook books.
Found and promptly bought the perfect table lamps for the living room.
But with all said and done we are super happy here in our New Manor!
We've accomplished a lot in our 2 and a half weeks but I wouldn't say any room is done! The laundry room is close, the kitchen is even closer, and the living room is almost finished! Well . . . . .As finished as any room can be, you know what I'm talking about, I'll be changing, re-arranging, re-decorating and just about any other re- you could think of for years to come. But for now It's getting close, and just in time to re-arrange it for Christmas!
I would love to share a big room reveal with you, but I can't so I thought I'd share a sneak peek of the only parts I've taken pictures of, our Living Room progress!
Here's our new clock (which also happens to be my slightly early birthday present)
This is the palate for the living room.
All the colors have been taken from this fabric!
And here's the cozy little reading corner, complete with a pillow from Homesense and a Throw from COSTCO!
So glad to be back! Check Back Tomorrow for some more Living Room updates,
I'll be picking up the new sconces in the morning (just simple white shades to tie into the dining room fixture :) Picutres by the evening (okay maybe not that fast :)
