House Stuff

For the last 5-6 months we have been living with our kitchen half finished. It sucked. Bad. When we moved in we had originally thought that we would paint all the rooms and get them finished before we moved in....we couldn't wait any longer because by the time we moved in it had been super cold and we had no heat at our other house. So we opted to just go ahead and move in and finish up the kitchen little by little. Yeah that didn't happen we just let it go until this weekend. Well yesterday to be exact.

A few weeks ago I was out thrifting, not really looking for anything just wanted to get out of the house. Then I stumbled upon a baker's rack. It was huge. It was awesome. It was $75. Deflated I thought to myself "I don't have any where for this so don't feel bad". Just so happens my mom calls me on her way to go get my sister from school and I of course tell her about the bad mamma jamma (aka the baker's rack) she surprises me and stops in to look herself. She bought it for me and gave me the idea to put it in the laundry room where there were two shelves I already used as part of a pantry. It just so happened it worked. So, back to this weekend...my Christopher sprayed the baker's rack for blue to crisp white. Don't get me wrong I liked the blue it just didn't go with the soft tealy-green I have in the laundry room.



Now to the kitchen.

Chris also put up our cabinet doors. Now our kitchen actually looks like a kitchen.

We also straightened up my craft room and the game room. Those are not ready to be photographed.  Until next time XOXOXO


One Year.

It has been one year(4/21) since my Aunt Tammy lost her battle with cancer. Before she underwent surgery I had already been planning our wedding and was so excited(even though we weren't engaged officially) and we were talking about my ideas. She could see where I was going before I got there. I miss her terribly. After her death I didn't plan anything, I put it off. It wasn't fun for me any more. This will be the first large wedding in our family she didn't have her hand in.  Her name is still on my guest list, it's too hard for me to take it off. I wished I had been around more, I wished I had went to visit her more...or even called her. I did love her, probably more then she knew. I hate I didn't share that with her.....


"Sometimes I feel the fear of uncertainty stinging clear 
And I cant help but ask myself how much I'll let the fear take the wheel and steer 
It's driven me before, it seems to have a vague 
Haunting mass appeal 
Lately I'm beginning to find that I should be the one behind the wheel" 

I love this song. Who hasn't let fear "drive" for them? But there comes a time when you have to be the one to drive and let fear take the backseat. So inspiring. <3


The RC

Yesterday after work I went around to the local thrift stores to find a few things for our dinning room. I have been obsessed with yellow lately and when I spotted a cheery yellow lamp I knew it had to come home with me. I also picked up a framed, historical Rutherford County Map. I also picked up a tray with a sparrow and two nifty jars with cork tops!

I love the happy yellow up against our soft gray walls. I can not wait until I get this room completed! Til next time XOXO
