Off to Vegas

I have been slacking on the blog, I know, but it's cause my mind (and my money) has been occupied. Early Saturday morning Mikey and I will be on a plane headed to Vegas baby!

I promise to come back rested and ready to get back to work on the house.

If you have a blog that you think I would be interested in checking out, maybe spur some ideas feel free to email me or comment. Thanks!!

See you guys in a week!


Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!!

The hubby has been out on call all day, so I have been at home relaxing on the couch, watching HGTV and touching up on a few projects.

After 4 trips to Home Depot we finally got the kitchen blinds cut properly.
What I like about them is they still let in light but add that bit of privacy I was looking for.

I can't wait to get rid of the dingy old window!
Next task, hanging the plates

Close up on 2 easy art projects

Form a shape with words
Take a picture you like and add words from your favorite song
Artist: Matt Good     Song: Avalanche
Weird squirrel picture

The wall still hasn't been painted
Ignore the pop can!
New, organized closet on main floor, it's not done but it works

And to finish this post with Valentine's Day in mind, here's a pic of our furbaby Magnum
and a wedding pic of Mikey and I.

He doesn't like the camera!


House Break

We're on a short reno break, the reason, we're heading to Vegas Feb 20-27 so any extra money is going into that. This will be our 3rd trip there and we're just as excited as our first time!!

Once we come back, we get to buckle down and start at the house again. Next project, the basement. Talk about a crap load of work, that place is downright scary!

Mike has been pretty much using this space as a workspace and I have been using it for storage.

Here's a few pics of what it looks like now, don't mind the mess! lol
Half of our sectional couch, extra hot water tank, chunks of trim everywhere

We're going to build a storage room on the side with the painting

Future bathroom

More future bathroom

The plans for the basement is: add full bathroom, put up all new drywall, redo all electrical, add storage room, add potlights, new carpet and cover post in the middle of basement.

Fun times!


Crafty Rooms

I told Mike that I would like a craft room in the basement once it's done, hopefully this year.
Here's some of my inspiration for the space

Better Homes & Garden
