Getting Stuff Done

September 18, 2011

Last Friday, I set a challenge for myself to start making our house feel like a "HOME". You can read about the challenge HERE.  Well, I actually did something to the room!! I won't say that it is complete yet but it is an improvement. (well I think so and... it is my house ).

Here is the said work in progress:

Here is our gallery wall. I love it because I have been able to include family's, friend's and my own works of art.

It's not a new couch but I am loving the fresher colour scheme, created by the throw pillows.

My oasis on the fireplace (bringing me peace so I can bare to look at it).

Not too shabby, eh?

So there it is, my work in progress! I still need to come up with an area rug and decide on some window treatments. I would also like to pick up some type of storage unit for the play corner. I would love any suggestions in regards to decor for any or all of the rooms I post!

Stay tuned - Next up is the Family Photo Wall........

Thanks for stopping by,

Making A Home

September 9, 2011

I heart interior decorating, so you can imagine my excitement at the thought of decorating our new home. I was so annoyed that we had to wait 4 months before we took possession. As I waited I would pour over magazines (paper & online). I had my list of design blogs that I would scour every night once Jamie had gone to bed, not to mention studying photos of our new house and planning where everything would go. I would change it all and make our home FABULOUS!!

Well, we have now been living in our house for almost 5 months and it is still not looking FABULOUS. I can't make a decision on anything, except the need to do SOMETHING!  So I thought if I dedicated every Friday's Blog Post to my HOME I will stop procrastinating, although I make no promises.

First up will be the family room- I find that our furniture is too dark and that we need to find some art to place on the wall. I am not a fan of the fireplace, but it is here to stay for awhile so I have to come up with a plan for it... 

So this is the deal- here are the photos of the room today, and then next Friday I will post the new design.....


I would like to have a gallery wall above the couch

This fire place taunts me everyday screaming "good luck with making me look good"

I would like to to dress up the windows with some type of treatment  
 Wish me luck ! Stay tuned for the unveiling next Friday.

Mommy's First Day

September 1, 2011

Do you remember that "Sunday Sick Feeling"? You know that feeling of anxiety  in the very pit of your stomach and you are like "what is wrong with me?" and then you remember that Monday is just a few hours away and you haven't started your homework,  it's your first day at a new job, or you are just plain feeling anxious.

I am totally suffering from Sunday Sick Feeling right now. You see tomorrow is a big day I have my first Mommy group play date. I finally bit the bullet and signed up for not one but two mommy meet up groups.
I even signed up to host a play date at my house once a month. (so not like me)

Of course I did this all from the safety of my home without having to go out and make small talk or meet anyone. I keep thinking what if I don't hit it off with anyone... or say what if I say something ridiculous thinking that it is funny and it so is not funny or worst of all what if I like the group and they don't like me or really really worst of all what if our kids don't get along.....

 UGH I feel like I am starting my first day at a new job or something. I am even trying to plan my outfit (casual comfort), also should I bring some kind of treat for everyone? Does it have to be healthy or can it be pastries?( like a real treat you look forward to.)

 I am going to cause myself to have an ulcer.Who knew that you were going to be put through high school again once you had a child. Although not everyone gets this anxious, I have a few Fab Mommy Friends that can walk into a situation not knowing anyone and end up leaving with everyone loving them and asking when do they get to see them next.... I need to be that Mommy
My goal tomorrow will be to  try and be the outgoing Mommy I really want to be and to just be myself. Someone has to like us,  right ...?

Wish us luck!!
