So I take the last part of the year off, and when I put in my vacation request, I think about all the things I’ll do in that time. I’ll sleep late. I’ll have long lunches with my friends and relaxing coffee dates. I’ll watch Fixer Upper marathons and snuggle up on the couch and drink cappuccino. I’ll lay under a heavy blanket and read until my eyes cross. That sounds lovely, doesn’t it?
Inevitably the only thing I get to do is clean and organize and purge. There is no relaxing. There is only sun up to sun down doing stuff. I have done so much crap that every muscle in my body hurts. I sat down only to write this post. And y’all, I have a super emotional post inside me that’s been wanting to get out for a while now, and I just don’t have it in me to bang it out onto this keyboard.
Instead, you get this unemotional front door. I’ve blogged about this door before, here. It looks nice in that after picture, but this is essentially what it’s looked like since then.
Y’all that door is so sad, isn’t it? When we went to Knoxville for Thanksgiving, we stopped at At Home (y’all, praise the Lord that that store is so far away or we would be so broke all the time). I was looking for a B, and they only had it in this teal design. I remembered that our door is like Tiffany Blue I would consider it to be, so I grabbed it.
Also, when I was perusing Etsy for a decal for Grumpy Toddler’s room, I found a decal for the front door and I totally fell in love with it. I ordered it from VinylEdgeDesign (I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, no one gives a crap about me referring anything, so I don’t get paid or kickbacks or discounts for it. I include where I bought stuff if it’s a great quality and is hassle free so you can experience that as well). I ordered it in Metallic Copper. I finally put it on yesterday, and viola.
Y’all, I do not want to even talk about how that “storm door” is STILL ON THIS HOUSE and the new beautiful one is STILL OUT IN THE SHED WAITING FOR SOMEONE TO LOVE ME ENOUGH TO PUT IT ON THE HOUSE. Or how badly our house needs to be power washed. My gosh. So much work to be done here. Here’s a close-up of the decal so you can tell how pretty it is. I am really impressed with how it came out:
Anyway, can y’all just throw me a bone? I know I haven’t posted forever but I am trying I swear.
