HOW is it Wednesday already?! I had every intention of approaching this week head on by keeping the momentum of painting from the weekend going but…no. I could almost hear the brakes screeching to halt on Monday night. For several reasons…

1. Painting the ceiling destroyed my upper body. I think I have permanent c-spine subluxation from looking UP for practically 8 hours straight. Even my ribs hurt.

2. We have to address a wall texture issue…more on that in an upcoming post later this week.

3. We have social obligations including birthday dinners, DIY baby shower prep, etc. 🙂 Plus, work has been just plain exhausting so busting our butts 9-5 and then hanging with the crew = more fun for now.

I’m itching to get started on the wall prep though so look for updates soon about the continued painting adventure.

In the meantime, I wanted to leave you with a little somethin’ somethin’ for your home improvement appetites. I’ve compiled a short list of some of my favorite home/DIY websites/blogs. I reference these often for inspiration and motivation. Happy surfing.


(affordable ideas with big impact)


(I was obsessed with the magazine and now I can get my fix daily with their blog. Great ideas from indoors to out).


(Arrange your furniture without lifting a finger!…ok, well maybe just your index finger…you’ll need to click your mouse after all).


(Get the look for less?!? Yes, please)


(Hours of fun…)

  1. Congrats on your new house and on your blog! I just thought that I’d chime in and say way to go and that I also absolutely love reading Fresh Home Ideas, but my boyfriend hates it because I always have a long to do list 🙂 Thanks for sharing their blog!
