A Little Bit of Life… On a Monday

I'm back. Phew, what a week. I had one HUGE assignment for school due for Friday, Christmas hours to get in for work (so I can enjoy a nice long week or so off) and an exam to study for. Unfortunately, the exam wasn't sent to where I was supposed to write it, so that's still on my plate for this week. But… I managed to get the house decorated, the tree up and a little family time in. I CAN FINALLY RELAX. And, that's because anybody that knows me, knows I am probably not studying for that exam I still have. Oh… the joys. Anyways, Christmas is upon us… I'm starting to get super excited and the house is starting to get that warm and fuzzy feeling. I can't wait.

The Etsy Shoppe... is still sitting there… with products in it though. Okay, no new ones. But, I did manage to get in some experiment time with earrings last week and continue to work at those. As the husband says, I was a little late with the Christmas decorations (although I do battle that the stars can be used year round). He says I should be working on Christmas in the summer and working on Summer now. So… hmm… While I do agree, I need a plan. Besides, I only posted those ornaments so I could finally say the Etsy Shoppe is open… I need to work at it though. Something I will be doing in the coming weeks as I should have more time. :o)

Anyways, I can't make this all about me. Well, I sorta have to… but I will post something that is definitely a little more interesting. While I've been busy, I've still managed some Pinterest time… who doesn't have time for Pinterest? Here are a few of my latest pins… Hopefully you can appreciate them too.

White is Heaven (A Little Pinterest)






Alright, off I go. I hope to be sharing some Christmas decor with you this week and maybe a free photo card design you can use to send to the family!! So… don't send out your greetings yet… I'm hoping to get a couple made up soon… one with a spot for the family pic. And, be sure to enter my giveaway, I've joined up with the Willow Wheat Spa.

Okay… that's a wrap on another Monday… I'm a happy camper again. :o)
Talk soon.

The Cape Cod... Before and After!

Finally! The hubby has been bugging me for months. When are you going to put the cape cod before and afters up? Although I've already shared the kitchen & dining room and the laundry room, here is the whole thing! I was going to do all separate posts... but we all know how long that is taking. So here goes, bare with me and what may be my longest post yet!

The Foyer

The Second Bathroom

The Laundry Room

The Kitchen & Dining Room

The Living Room

The Family Room

Oops! I forgot to take after pictures of the family room. :o)

The Master Bedroom

The 2nd Bedroom

The 3rd Bedroom

The Main Bathroom

There. Finally, something that has been on every one of my blog to do lists since forever! What a huge relief and I am certainly glad I could finally share the before and after. Now, I need to keep working away at the lists - today I actually went to the post office to get pricing for my items. Yay! Happy hump day... we're getting closer to the end of another work week!

Yup... It's a Pinterest Post

Happy Monday!! If there is such a thing... I've been lala land and you guessed it, today's post is another Pinterest post, brought to you by my "dream home." board. Of course, I could post a million +1 pictures in this post, but I'll try my best to leave it to my latest faves.

Before I take off into dream land, what's new? Well, summer weather has arrived, so lots of outdoor work, boating and enjoying time on the patio. As well, lots of BBQing... I absolutely love the BBQ! And, the house is still being viewed constantly, okay so it seems, but honestly I don't think I've ever cleaned a house as much as I have this one in the past month... plus the animals are constantly shedding, so it really doesn't help. As for house purchasing, we're on the fence. We do have an offer in on a house but are continuing to look just in case. Of course, not much else is new, work continues to be work. I'm hoping to spend a little more time with you guys and my blog than I have been neglecting. It's just so hard to pull out the computer instead of enjoying some quiet time outside. But, I will do my best :)

Okay, so that's what is new with life. Nothing too exciting! Here is a glimpse of where I could spend the rest of my life... oh to dream. The dream home:

A master bedroom that is to die for.

decor pad.
A family room that is cozy year round.
decor pad.

A modern twist on a dining room.
(maybe make the table a little wider)

a thoughtful eye.

The dream kitchen.


The most peaceful bathroom.

better homes and gardens.

That is it for now. I will continue to dream that our next place can turn into half of what I absolutely love. Of course it will take lots of work to get character put into most houses around where I live. But, I'm on a mission to do just that. If we can't find it, we'll have to create it. It will all depend on where we end up! Have a great week...
