Getting to know me:
1. I DO NOT complain about the weather. EVER. Complaining has never changed the weather and I feel like we should be grateful every day that we get to wake up and have weather. . .
2. In the same vein, I would NEVER complain about the upheaval in my house caused by renovating two bathrooms simultaneously.
I’m going to talk about it. But please understand that I am not complaining.
Okay – on with the post!
Even though I don’t want to admit it, I guess it’s time to get ready for Fall. (See? I can’t even say it IS Fall.) But leaves are starting to change and drop, the nights are getting cooler, and the kids went back to school this week.
I don’t do a ton seasonal decorating – but I do have a big bin full of pretty fall things – would you like to see how I’m decorating this year?
I wish! This year it’s looking a lot more like this. . .
Here is a wider shot of the fabulous Fall decor on my front porch. Don’t be jealous.
I usually decorate the front porch and the dining room. I put a picture on Facebook a few days ago of the craziness going on in the dining room but you couldn’t see the real focal point of that decorating genius. . .
Oh, and I almost forgot. I splurged on a fancy new runner for the front hallway in the house!
Remember though, that I am not complaining. While I could wish that the house was not quite so cluttered at the moment, I actually love the hustle and bustle of renovations. Our contractor was Best Man in our wedding 12 years ago so it’s a pleasure to have him around. We know he does great work so there are no major headaches as far as how the job is going. We have the comfort of knowing ahead of time that we will be thrilled with the final product. We haven’t done any major work inside the house in a few years now and it’s very exciting to finally be sprucing up an area that really needed sprucing. Really. I’m so lucky to be in this crazy house – with all the craziness!!
And I do have some real beautiful Fall deco pictures to show you. . .
And then of course, I get a little carried away. I do enjoy the colors of the Fall leaves. And he doesn’t look like he minds too much. . .
I’m thinking that might have to be the extent of my Fall decorating this year. But I know it will all be worth it.
I did promise you a tiny sneak peek at the bathroom, right? Here are a couple of pictures that will give you just a little taste. I’ll have more coming up soon. These are both in the downstairs bathroom – the one that will be getting the painted floor.
I know that is only a very little taste but I promise that there will be more! And there is another whole bathroom coming up too!! It’s an exciting time around here! Come back and see how things are going.
Are you working on or planning any major renovations right now? Is it disrupting the rest of your household? Does it make you crazy or do you take it all in stride?
tell me about it!
