because our daily routine...which thankfully we have one now...looks a lot like up and down the stairs x10...crawl into everyroom...cruise along all the walls, open all the kitchen drawers and cabinets, try to sneak into the fireplace while mom is not looking. oh and splash with our little hands in the dog's water bowl and other pots and pans. so in other words we are having lots of fun! but i do feel like the following
and i feel like this...or at least this reminds me of cooper
so for breakfast...
cooking for dinner...
italian crock pot chicken [easy]
1lb chicken breast, pack of hidden valley ranch dry dressing, can of cream of chicken soup, and pack of sour cream or cream cheese..we choose sour cream because that is what our fridge offered. slow cook for 4-6 hours. new one so ill let you know how it turns out.
created my own font...
out of my handwriting that ill use in my word/adobe files...so easy and fun! this is it below..ktype
making these for the pup babies...
due to my recent OCD they are not allowed on the bed (working on this with cooper) or any sofa (working on this with mika) so i figure they deserve their own little area. ill show you the finished product soon.
my new summer/fall color on the toes is...
essie "no more film"
after getting married, moving three times in almost five years, buying a house, selling a house, having a baby, countless certifications ect. we have a few important documents that need a special home [not haphazardly thrown into a plastic filing bin]
i feel so much better knowing EVERYthing is accounted for and organized. except for my missing passport. that i need to find. now
on the horizon...feeling motivated to finish some projects and spaces in the next few weeks.
first up is the nursery. i have an accent wall that has been painted [teal], but then it was left at that..ok extreme exhaustion and baby being born got in the way..haha. not the plan. so a custom stencil is going up soon...along with some handmade art.
second. we sold the vintage sofa and chair set. i was sad to see it go. i had dreams full of grey linen and charcoal pipping...one day. but going into that room [office] made me think it needs some love. so painting here i come [navy to be exact] also allowing mr. b to buy some crazy big bank like vault to store our armory in. spying a peacock chair sold here locally for the space as well.. so i hope to return with an updated space radiating masculinity built on layers of texture and deep hues.
we have no backsplash [adding one] but we have white cabinetry that is in good shape. our pink [yes pink..the owner who built this house had a love affair with red..i am certain] counter tops will be replaced with granite or quartz [hesitant to do this for resale value..some peeps just don't get it]...that is where we are stuck. issue is do we move the cooktop to the island and install a double oven? or leave our current slide-in? or replace with a freestanding [that has a double oven]...all this confusion because 1. the dishwasher is about to die 2. we need to decide before the counter top is cut.
well whatever we decide we hope it feels like this
*see the beautiful quartz counter tops. yes i do too
we also will be ordering these beauties for the 1/2 bath [which is painted a sexy black high gloss]..and i am pretty sure ill pack them in my suitcase when we sell the house [down a long road from now]
fourth...designing my little brother and niece's future condo/house. many many ideas. budget friendly ideas. on the cheap but with great quality and design. can't wait to share. but here is a preview of a few ideas.
driftwood lamp. find wood. buy lamp kit. done. already have shades
sheet music art. favorite song...his pink floyd number. frame already have.
coffee table...will be experimenting with some gas pipe remnants and mdf board.
grey sofa...donated by my parents. same shape as below
niece's room. colorful bright. like she is. awesome. funky chic to be exact. something similar to below because her favorite color is really "green" but also the rainbow.
paint color...use somewhere or on something..if this paint color could be renamed it would be michael t...or squeeze..or 444 whatever those boys are saying these days.
dining table will definitely be an eclectic mix just like the one below. thinking mdf [again] painted white with automotive paint. craigslist chairs. done
focal art or headboard?
although i would like to get started on these project right away...i have to wait. which brings me to a new motto of mine. and a print that will be hung by my bed
not to leave little man out...here are a few things i'm also working on! Dinosaur hoodie, and gak
and for the front door...but with fall colors and flowers
custom letters found here..or you can trace and cut our own out of 1/4 inch mdf [mr.b job]
so yes crazy busy..in reality i will be lucky to complete these by hud's first birthday! [what!]
what a great idea..
bye for now...
