currently on this friday

 the hubs and I closed on our house last night! we couldn’t be more excited . . . he to be a homeowner and myself to get started on demo! We have carpets to pull up and a few cabinets to get off the walls before we can paint! After a couple weeks of painting and putting the new floors in I think he’ll be over it and want to sleep in on our Saturday ‘house work days’, so I have plans to use all of his adrenaline tomorrow! Luckily this isn’t the first he’s heard of this . . .


This is my face all day today with thoughts of better ways to get stuff done in the coming weeks . . . just imagine my eyes darting back and forth and lots of talking happening. Here’s 5 things I’m currently doing or feeling . . . all of the feels . . .

Writing :: a shopping list for lowe’s. paint and supplies – new front door hardware – 3 light fixtures   Anticipating :: going to the state fair with the bestie tonight.   Wearing :: comfy stuff   Craving :: lots of things. My diy heart is going crazy right now. I also can’t wait for a funnel cake tonight   Missing :: my sister and my niece. It feels forever since I’ve seen them.

    Hi Bex! I found you through the Coffee Date link up at Dearest Love. I’m trying to become a first time house owner and can’t wait to make it a home. Pinterest has been my go-to for finding ideas 🙂 I pray all goes well with your demo work on the new house!

    I also see that you’re a VA and I’ve been thinking about going down the route for additional income. I’m an administrative assistant myself full time and blogger part time (although one day I pray to become a full time author/blogger).

    Blessings to you! Liv 🙂

      My VA business just took off and running haven’t even had a change to officially announce it here on the blog yet, but so far so good. you should check out she has a VA course that I found extremely helpful.

      thank you! the bangs are so hard to take care of, but I feel like they add a lot so I deal with it. They’ll probably be in the growing out stage as well by the end of the year haha!
