Back in the day, Fridays meant drinking, sleeping for 2 days, hanging out with friends, and drinking more. However on THIS grown up Friday I am looking forward to a Friday night trip to Ikea and a weekend of painting the new house. That's right, my 28th birthday came and turned me into a grandma.
I'm also really excited for my parents to come this weekend. They're going to help paint and fix things up and my mom is going to mom-ify things. Yes, I'm 28 and I still need my mom to come "mom-ify" my house to make it feel like home. But moms just have this knowledge of home things that I haven't yet developed I guess?
Here are some pix:
AAAGHHH. Notice the only furniture- dog bed and TV. And of course, champagne. Last night I threw out the pink paper and scrubbbbed the floors. Andi has a new fear of Swiffers and hid the entire time. Those pits are ferocious man! Also we're painting this whole area a light gray. I ordered this rug for the living room, and most furniture is dark brown and neutral beige-ish. What color curtains would you get?? I am horrible at curtains. I think about it for hours and end up buying 10 to try and hate all of them!
I finished unpacking the kitchen yesterday. This is going to be that gray color too!
When moving I found Harrison's collection of steak knives. I have no idea why we need all these. Maybe we'll have a steak party? But really a whole drawer...
Andi "helping" me take the last load to the new place. The move was just too much for her.
Celebratory champs in the new house (check out that granite! If you're in the DMV looking for new granite let me know, we got an AWESOME deal):
Here is Andi loving her new yard. Almost brought tears to my eyes! It must feel so good to go from being cooped up in an apartment all the time to having a yard to run in!
Anyone have advice/resources on linen closet storage and under-the-sink storage?
