friday ramblings and 5 things I’d marry

You guys, I finally had my first house related breakdown. We all knew it was going to happen – it was just a question of when and the question has finally been answered. Everything is actually going perfectly, but I feel a little behind schedule mostly because we’ve been able to save money in a few places and therefore add a couple projects to the before we move schedule. We also hadn’t started packing at all  . . . until Wednesday. Sooo while starting packing on Wednesday I told the hubs that I was over it. . . this was after said breakdown and realizing I was being just a little irrational and piecing together why it was happening . . .

That picture is our kitchen in the new house. the color is hang ten by valspar and if I could marry a color this would be it.

we’ve been trying to keep our apartment relatively put together and clean so that the place we are actually living in is a ‘home’ still and stuffing all our mess and boxes into the office. So we’ve been trying to keep up with our cleaning schedule and I’ve been cooking like I normally do except on Saturdays when we spend the whole day at our new house and hiding the moving mess . . . and I’m over it . . . it’s time to live in chaos because our life is a little chaotic right now. It’s a good chaotic and with all the wonderful, appreciated help we have and how organized we are it’s going great and it’s going to get us the best house for us right now (seriously if this place had 1 more bedroom I’d stay here forever, but since it doesn’t we’ll probably be here until kid numero dos comes or as my husband says 5-7 years).

that fabric is the fabric i’d marry. and it’ll be somewhere in our new house and not just because i’ve already ordered 2 yards of it with no ideas on where to go . . .

honestly that chaos/mess is probably going to help my attitude because I feel like I’m checking more things off the ever growing house renovation and moving checklist instead of just cleaning an apartment I’ll be at for only 3 more weeks. so instead of keeping the mess to 1 room I think I’ll keep the cleanliness to our bedroom/bathroom so we can still sleep and shower in peace and cleanliness.

If I could marry a quote I think I’d marry this one – found on

so October 1st is the light at the end of the tunnel . . . will I be completely done with everything I want to do in our new house? no, that’s not even a goal. but the MAJOR projects will be done and we’ll be moved and if I know myself we’ll be unpacked and organized by then too.

    1. I LOVE your kitchen color. I would marry it too. 2. What if you fall? I teared up. 3. Living in chaos is not all bad…you have seen my home. 4. YOU had a breakdown? NOOOO not you. LOL, I wish I could have seen it and I wish I could have heard your husbands unwanted but lovely “calm it down, right now” speech. P.S. The last last picture, he is a cutie and a keeper (even if I am prejudice where he is concerned)
