Yard Sale Steals

Yard Sale Collage

Hello Pretties,

I know I’ve been M.I.A. for a little while but I had a death in the family recently and I have been dealing with that. I just haven’t been in the mood to chit chat or write much. BUT I am trying to get out of my funk, so here I am to update you on the things I have been up to.

Switching to something a little more light hearted… Yard Sales! Since the weather started warming up, my mom and I have been getting up early on Saturday’s and heading out to sift through peoples old stuff. I thought this was a great idea since we just bought a house and basically need everything!!! This definitely take away from my ability to sleep in, but I figure it’s worth it if I can find cheap pieces in good shape for the house. Turns out I was right! We’ve gone out 5 times this summer and I have practically stolen 5 pieces of furniture for our house. Everything was under 10 bucks! With a little work and some paint they’re gonna look fantastic! How can you beat that?

Pupcakes for my Pup

Milo's BirthdayMilo turned 5 on Monday and I of course spoil the crap out of him on a regular bases! So naturally I had to make him a special treat, cook him a special dinner, and get him a couple new toys for his birthday. If you follow me on any social media or know me personally you know that I am madly, head over heels, in love with my little big guy…. so the fact that I did all of this, surprises no one! Hell, he has his own Instagram for heaven sakes.

How I Picked a Home Paint Scheme

Whole-Home Paint Scheme

Hello friends! For the last week or two I have been painstakingly searching the internet for paint colors to use in the new house. Like I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been mainly using Pinterest. This is turning out to be one hell of a task, since there are sooooo many colors I like!!!! I think my biggest problem is going to be not getting a head of myself and just picking all the colors I think are cute and ending up with a home that looks like a clown was hired as my interior decorator.

First Month as a Homeowner

So its actually only been a couple of weeks but that as a title sounded obnoxious. We’re almost at a month and man what a month it has been! Friendly tip… Avoid buying a home at the beginning of winter, especially if some renovations have to be done before you can settle in… You know, if you can. We couldn’t in our case… I mean look at how cute it is! We couldn’t pass it up! Lucky for us, our living situation allows us the time needed to work on the house before we move in.
