Trouble happens when you skip the gym to play.

I skipped the gym to play. I admit it. And now I might not even get it in. I went to HomeGoods instead and got some goodies to try out at the lake this weekend. 
That fabric is for a new king-sized headboard for the lake. 
Check out all of these great lamps there today:
This pair looked like some sort of animal skin but were ceramic. 
LOVE love love the shape of these. Want these.
And a task lamp with a mica shade. saweet. To continue my afternoon of hooky I went and at lunch with Ethan and Justine. He was so excited to see me!

Big news all around...

First things first. This past Saturday around lunch time Nate's sister had her baby! Ethan Thomas. And let me tell you, he is yummy. And beautiful. With dark hair like his dad's. He will be a heartbreaker. 
I, of course, used my iphone to pimp out my first picture of me and my nephew. Because I do stuff like that. And I love Apple products. And my nephew. 
Ethan was the first newborn baby that Nate has ever held, and he looks so good doing it....I think I can speak for Nate when I say that he fell in love with Ethan instantly. Justine (baby-mama) was a rock-star and is doing well, also :) 

Now, don't go getting any fancy ideas in your head (speaking to family, close friends, baby-hungry readers) we are not even close to making one of those because....

We bought a house.
Not nearly as important as baby Ethan, but still huge for us!
And it feels so good to finallllly be able to say something to y'all. This is why I have been blog-absent for all of May, because I knew I would crack. Maybe a hint here and there. 

The details: It is a 1915 (or 1914...numbers kill me) bungalow. Eech! Either way, over a 100 years old. You can imagine that the inspection was something of a hand-wringer (and the engineer, and the HVAC guy, and the stone masons....and the closing process, do you get the picture?) How bout a pic?
The original closeing date was this coming Friday, but paper-pushing has moved it to sometime (hopefully) within the next two weeks. 

This baby needs some work. We are excited to get our hands dirty, but many of the big, immediate fixes we cannot do ourselves. Yard work, demo, and painting are in our future. 
Reacher finally has a big back yard (or will in a couple weeks)
and a non-code-compliant back deck :)
Well, thats all for now folks. Stay tuned as I take you through the house over the next few weeks!

Front Doors

Last year I did a round up of painted front doors and I want to add these to my collection.
mmm, wrong side of the house, but let's pretend that both sides are painted blue.

Pretty coral....
And, of course, my own front door. How long did those nailheads take??

I feel like I fell off a 10 foot high blogger cliff and lived to tell

You know the kind. That cliff where time and real life collide. Yea. But I'm back with news and inspiration out the wazoo.

1) I now moonlight as an adult with a real job. I love the place, the girls I work with, and the location of said job. More on that later.

I love the color of this pool house:

I love these runners:

Brain dump commence.
