Hello Out There!!!
Sorry I was MIA last week! I took a much needed break. The month of August was a roller coaster -- The Husband and I are really really looking forward to September. Not necessarily because we have anything going on as of now but because August is over lol.
I took last week off to kind of re-group. So here is what has been going on :

2 weeks ago our A/C quit working!! We are working on buying a new house so a lot of our funds are off limits. There are also other circumstances that keep us from spending the $1200 it would take to fix it. So right now we basically live in our bedroom with a window unit. Our room stays very comfortable -- the rest of the house....not so much! =/
I have started eating better since this post. I feel better already and this weekend I started a new work out routine that I am excited about. It is something I put together on my own that has some variety in it and allows me to interchange days/work outs.
I was in a car accident last Wednesday morning on my way to work =(
my poor car! They came and hauled it off and I should hear back regarding the damage sometime in the next couple days. I walked away unharmed and the guy I hit was in a Dodge 2500 with a life gate -- AKA NO DAMAGE to his vehicle.
I started color blocking the house, trying to find the perfect color(s) for when we move into the new house.
J originally picked this color:
He said it was too dark so we tried the same color card but the lighter shade.
He is much happier with this color -- so this will be the color for the 'man-room' and also, the laundry room and the accent color in the craft room.
We also set out to find the perfect color for MOST of the house.
We determined these two colors were too drab and too gray based. so we went for a warmer tone.
I think we have a winner. We are really happy with this color!!
Now I just need to figure out the gray shades for the master bed and bath.
Something else I worked on last week and this weekend was this little beauty:
Why, yes, it IS a hot mess. It was free and will provide wonderful storage in the craft room. The piece itself is good quality and very solid...it has seen some abuse though. Thankfully none of the wood is splintered, it is just a mess on the surface of the piece. I have been refinishing it for the past week. I can't wait to show you the after pictures!
Still no closing date =( It has been about 5 weeks and I am tired of waiting. Every Sunday night, J and I say to one another, maybe we'll get a closing date this week. I'm really hoping we hear something soon. I know our realtor is starting to get annoyed - she copies me on the emails to the selling agent haha! She is even wondering why this is taking as long as it is.
Well, I think that about covers everything and catches me up!
What has been going on in your life??
