Autumn had arrived!!! The leaves are changing, the air is getting crisp, and unfortunately the days are getting shorter. Nonetheless I am getting excited about it because fall is my favorite season. #BasicWhiteChick. It’s really just for the clothes and pretty picture opportunities. I love boots, sweaters, and scarves. More layers, the better! And obviously the changing leaves make a great addition to any photo. So enough about my white girl tendencies. The real reason for the post is to share my latest crafts.
Hello everyone! I have come to update you on my yard sale steals projects I mentioned in my last post. The first project we wanted to tackle was the kitchen island/microwave cart. Since the kitchen is the space that needs the most help, we started there. We have a decent sized kitchen but its mostly empty space. There aren’t a lot of cabinets or counter space and the sink is old and tiny. So kitchen cart it was!
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?
The last couple of months have been absolutely hectic, I have lost count of how many days its been since we bought our house. We are almost done with our first renovations and I am beyond excited about it. Once we get the main living areas painted we can officially MOVE IN!
Milo 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.
