Work in progress

I'm sorry, what?
We actually have a free weekend?
Yes. This is our first weekend void of weddings/showers/bachelor(ette) parties/insert-any-other-life event in about 3 months.

At first I panicked because
I'm not quite sure what to do
with free time.

But then, I quickly realized that our
sweet little home has been neglected
for the past few months. And the 3-day weekend
gives the perfect opportunity to do some work!

When we first moved in, we had 4 MAJOR house projects going on at once.
This was quite possibly one of the most stressful time periods ever.

We didn't plan on doing that much work at once,
but stuff kept breaking!

Due to burn-out, we took a giant break from doing anything house
related (including cleaning and doing laundry).
Just kidding.
Kind of.

So, le house is still a major work in progress.

But here are some more pics.

Welcome to our living room - Before & After
(*Still have big plans for this room: floating shelves, possible photo wall, and a cute little buffet that's been sitting in the garage for 4 months.)

Yes. I'm clearly indecisive.
