Master Mood

I was drunk Pinning one night and resolved I would finally get around to updating our master bedroom. These spaces turned me on.


And this is how I’m making my vision come to life:

crystal wall sconce; swan watercolor; mirror; vases; lamp; tray; salmon throw; leather ottoman; pillows; gallery wall.

New lighting, art, and accessories are freshening up the cave.

I’ll have you know that I’m a bargain hunter and I scored that ridiculously expensive mirror for $20 at TJMaxx. It’s the exact same thing on a smaller scale and I love waking up to it every morning. Also, I don’t plan on spending an arm and a leg on an ottoman or trays or accessories, so I’ll continue scouring until I find affordable versions.

I’ll share photos of the end result when it’s closer to complete.

We’re doing it you guys…We’re refinancing our house and I have paint in my hair to prove it.

We spent all day (seriously, all day) yesterday prepping our house for the appraisal. That meant fixing up the giant hole in our loft where the skylight used to be (against HOA rules) and deep cleaning that shiz.

We took the loft from this…

to this…

It’s nothing fancy, but it works for now. Also, I have vowed never to paint another wall again in my life. Excuse me while I go tend to my aching cells.

P.S. The Husband swore he would kill me if I posted this picture but I couldn’t help myself. He should know better than to strike a pose when camera is in hand. I’m prepared to face the consequences of my actions.

To Do

Today I’m going to put the finishing touches on my Christmas decorations.

Wrap presents with The Monster.

Indulge in a little pre-Christmas Eve adult beverage consumption.

And overall be merry that I don’t have to work until next Tuesday. Happy holidays!

Home Again

I’m back lovebugs and still in the process of gathering my wits. The 19 hour time difference has put me in a zombie-like trance the last couple of days, but I’m tan, fat and happy so I’d say our trip to Fiji was a success. As disheartening as it was to trade in the tropics for my cubicle, it’s nice to be home with the dogs and eat unfried food. I’m putting together a long post or two with photos and details of our holiday and that should be the last of the Spring Break series. We’ll slowly ease into the real world together.

I hope you enjoyed the guests blogs while I was gone. Thanks to all the fantastic ladies who participated and to all my readers for sticking around. You helped me look forward to coming home.

Home Sweet…

I wanted to wait until every room was to my liking before I posted any photos of my house, but that’s never going to happen. So I did some major cleaning this weekend and snapped some shots to give you a glimpse into our home.

Living room

Dining room

Office/Guest Room


I spared you images of the bathrooms, kitchen and master bedroom. Nothing interesting to look at. So there you have it. Our home. Judge away.

His Royal Highness

I haven’t done much in the way of posting photos of my home and it’s because I’m currently not in love with it. I have a lot of changes to make and the real thing doesn’t look nearly as good as what’s in my head, but I couldn’t resist showing you this photo of my fur child Dexter. He obviously thinks he’s royalty and I often find him perched on that couch like its his throne. This is why I can’t get a white couch.
