Around the house – I want to change things, and paint, and re-do everything. I am fairly certain that this drives my dear husband nuts! We are still plugging away in the basement – the good news is that the remodeling is done! But now we are purging stuff and reorganizing (photos to come). I do have some decorating to do as well – the walls are for the most part are empty. However, I am not really the type of person that goes and purchases decor/furniture and fills up a room in one day. I slowly collect things, put things together, move things around. Which makes for a long process – but I believe makes a house more of a home.
Zooey told me that she wants pink walls. I was hoping for something a bit more neutral! We will have to debate this one for a while. Good thing I am not ready to tackle this project yet!
Here is what the basement family room is looking like these days. Including 2 video game playing boys. I don’t want to make the room to girly – also trying to keep it light and fun for the kids. The couch could use some throw pillows and maybe a fun rug? I don’t know I am working on it (mentally working on it).
And while we are at it…how about a random of the kitchen table. I cleaned it off before bed this night…it feels great to wake up to a clean kitchen table. However, I need to work on that cork board back there – yikes! Lots o’ papers!
Zooey graduated from preschool this week! I am being fairly sappy about the entire thing because she is my last baby, and clearly not a baby anymore (sigh). She was so excited and proud of herself! She is a hoot.
Other stuff from the week:
I went to the Iowa State Cyclone Tailgate Tour (not my school!) but I won for my Dad an ISU golf towel set, so yeah! Actually between Dimitri and my Dad there is a lot of cheering for ISU even from me. Go Cyclones!
And another selfie that day of what I wore: Maxi skirt, black tank and denim jacket all from stitch fix. My hair is driving me nuts these days – I keep trying to make it straight – but the weather has other ideas. So this day I threw it back into a messy bun and called it good – I think this might be my hair look for summer 2015.
Owen’s last football game of the season. It was rainy and cold – which is what seems to be the weather theme around here. I want the sun! I want the pool! Finger’s crossed for Monday – I need my unofficial first day of summer to start with blue water and a drink in my hand.
Zooey wanted to buy all the purple and pink flowers.
So yup, that’s what has been going on around here!
