Bring on the Trouble!

Not only is it Thursday, my favorite day of the week, but it is also the return of Vampire Diaries. I can't wait to see how the rest of the season plays out and of course the guys sure are nice to look at!

This weekend starts the kick off for our sweet friends Lauren & Chad's wedding festivities! The bachelorette/bachelor party is already booked for March but this weekend us bridesmaids are hosting the Bridal Shower. We are all excited not only for the shower but also to all be able to be in the same room at the same time. It's been way too long! We plan on drinks, dinner, more drinking and lots of fun afterwards. Oh and lots of picture taking! We always have tons of fun and get into all sorts of trouble. Bring it on!!!

Sorry I haven't posted much this week just have a million things going on! Monday I will be back on track and ready to blog my life away! Hope you all have an amazing weekend. Hoping for some beautiful warm weather. I think the winter has overstayed it's welcome!

So I have been trying to keep myself occupied while trying to procrastinate finishing the bathroom. Yes I am really excited about doing the bathroom but I hate drawing the stencil on the wall. BORING!!! It will be worth it when it is all done...that's what I keep telling myself.

So in the meantime I have just been doing a little here and a little there around the house. Lucky you it's another day full of pictures.

I don't think anyone realized just how big the lion was that I painted. A sweet friend of mine came over the other day and was a little shocked by it's size. So I thought I would do a side profile so you get the picture better. Humongous!

I also won an amazing Giveaway hosted by the super sweet Lili at swanky::chic::fete!!! If you haven't discovered her blog yet you have been missing out! I just adore her and her blog! I am in love with these amazing Jonathan Adler tumblers and the oh so cool post-its! Thanks Lili!!!

Oh and you know those horse head bookends that we spray painted. I finally put them out. They made a couple different trips around the house and finally found the perfect home on our entrainment center! I love the way they pop against the dark dark background. One day I will show you the rest of the entrainment center setup (when the house is perfectly clean, but don't hold your breath it won't be anytime soon).

Now this is the part of the post where you don't judge! This is our closet on a regular day. It's a descent size so alot of times when we are expecting people over I just throw whatever I can in here. Plus I don't know if the hubby knows what a hanger is. It felt like if I moved stuff I might just find a door to Narnia!

Notice the pile of clean clothes on the dresser (his). They sat there for 2 weeks.

and for some reason he likes to drape his work pants on top of the shelf. Remember I don't think he knows what a hanger is. But I have no room to talk cause usually my scarves are all over the place.

Well enough was enough and while the hubby was away on a hunting trip I decided to tackle this mess. I was tired of living in chaos. Here is how it finally turned out.

Everything all nice and neat! I swear he has more shoes than I do.

The dresser is finally clean. Still working on a solution for the jewelry though.

That container holds all 25 of my scarves. I rolled them up nice and neat!
Now lets see how long it lasts!!!

One day I will finally have a closet like this:
Hey a girl can dream can't she!

And finally another project I have been procrastinating:

So glad it is finally Friday! I hope all you ladies have a warm and wonderful weekend ahead!

Baby Brain

I have a bad case of baby brain! It's all I have been thinking about lately and it doesn't help that everyone and their mother is pregnant right now both famous and fabulous. It's both exciting and hard at the same time. It's everywhere I turn, Facebook, tabloids, home...everywhere!!! I am ready, like soooooooo ready but the timing is off. I am not going to lie, I have been in the WORST mood lately because of this. I know my time will come and it will be so worth the wait but can it just get here already!?!!

It probably doesn't help that I have a list of baby names already picked out and a never ending inspirational folder of baby rooms! So here is a sneak peak into just a "few" rooms I have saved. Some are even of my sweet blogging friends that have fabulous taste!


*Sigh* day it will be my turn.
Hope all you ladies are having a wonderful week.
The weekend is slowly approaching and I can't wait!
