WILW - Home Edition



Man, oh man. There sure was a lot of dust collecting on this sweet little ol' blog of mine. I apologize for my lack of blogging/reading/commenting the past couple of weeks. I think I have over 1,000 posts piling up in my Google Reader. Sheesh. But, between being a new homeowner, applying for jobs like whoa, and finishing up school, there hasn't been a whole lot of time. Excuses, excuses. I know.

So...I thought I'd join in on WILW with Jamie this week - Home Edition!

There is SO much I'm loving about being a new HOMEOWNER!!!

1). I'm LOVING that it's my spring break so I can actually work on little home projects.

2). I'm LOVING that this is an exciting new phase in our lives. Our little home may have its imperfections, but it is ours!


3). I'm LOVING my sweet husband who is quickly becoming a cute Mr.-Fix-It.


4). I'm LOVING painting! Although, I have to say, painting textured walls is quite tedious - and my back and arms are killing me. And yes, that is 5 paint samples on our wall (7 total if you count the 2 shades of white). I'm indecisive. Sue me.


5). I'm LOVING our little cottage dining room table. So perfect. So us.


6). I'm LOVING our fit-everything-perfectly closet. Ok, so Mr. Ruby offered to give me the whole closet. I insisted that we share and he insisted I have the whole thing. I took the offer. He decided to take the Pepto-Bismol room closet. What a sweetheart.


7). I'm LOVING that I have a little helper. Today, he decided to try to help me paint. I died laughing when I walked into the living room and this is what I saw:


We've all been quite exhausted with this new home business. I often find this in the middle of our floor:


What are YOU loving this Wednesday?!?!

P.S. I promise to update with house photos soon!!! ;)

Kristen said...

that first picture of you guys is adorable! isn't having a home so much fun!? i've grown to loathe painting, thank goodness we're done for a bit. yay for new houses!

Amanda said...

How exciting! I can commiserate with the textured walls thing. We have orange-peel textured walls at our house, which I think should be illegal. But it's a workout!
