NaBloPoMo Day 5

Well, that didn't last long. Failed on day 4! At least last year I made it a few weeks.

NaBloPoMo Day 3

Short post today. I just spent 3.5 hours priming part of the hallway. On the bright side, five doorways down! On the dark side, eight to go. Oof.

NaBloPoMo Day 2


So I didn't have my camera (phone) out at all last night, so I didn't take any pictures of my costume. Hopefully Janna will post her pics soon and I can just borrow them and post here.

Anyway, now that Halloween is over, it's time to start looking forward to the next holiday: Second Thanksgiving! I've been searching Pinterest today to try to find some great recipes or ideas for something different. But it's probably not the best day to try something different, right? People expect certain things for Thanksgiving and who am I to deny them that? Maybe I'll find some new ideas for ACTUAL Thanksgiving since Kevin and I will be spending the day just the two of us!

Also, did I write yesterday about how we are getting ready to paint our hallway? Well we bought primer, and I've tried to patch all (most) of the cracks in the plaster. The unfortunate thing is that we don't have a working light in the hallway so I can only do work during daylight hours. This means that my free weekends are no longer free until it's done! Yay! (Not yay.)

NaBloPoMo Day 1

It's NaBloPoMo yet again! Not sure if I am going to participate all month, but I will fail already if I don't post anything today.

Anyway, we have a post-Halloween party tonight (in like 2 hours) so I had to come up with a costume for the first time in many, many years. I'm going to be the Hamburglar, but I have to make my hamburger tie like right now, and figure out how to not freeze my own hamburger buns off since it is a summery maxi-ish dress (I'm too tall for it to be a true maxi, but it was $8 at Savers, so I'm not gonna complain). I already have tights, but I think I might throw a white dress shirt over top to class it up a little bit and cover my arms.

I also volunteered us to bring a cheese and crackers plate, so Kevin had the brilliant idea to come up with Halloween-y puns for the cheeses. So far we have Colby Jack-O'Lantern and a Triple Scream Brie and I thought we were doing Monster (Muenster), but we couldn't find any at the store. We also got some Children of the Corn Crisps and Rosemary's Baby and Olive Oil crackers.

I will try to post pictures of my completed costume and of my cute cheese plate for tomorrow!

Womp womp

I fail at NaBloPoMo. I was so busy and then so tired that I completely forgot to blog this weekend. Oh well, what can I do?

We're pulling up my beloved tile floor which means that I need to figure out what kind of tile I want to replace it with. I'm not a huge fan of hexagon tile but I'll make it work if I have to. I do think I want a border around the room, though. Maybe black?

We also got a tub this weekend! Kevin checked it out on Friday and we picked it up on Saturday with the help of my aunt and uncle. I have to scrub it down and paint the outside, probably black. Do I want to go shiny or matte? SO MANY DECISIONS!

Day twenty two

We got a tub! We're picking it up tomorrow. And Kevin found a super great vintage housewares store that we're gonna check out again tomorrow.

And was this week seriously the longest week ever? I feel like I did so much but still didn't get anything done. Hopefully next week will be better. I am working four days but no one will be around On Friday so hopefully I can actually finish some stuff. Damn.

Day twenty one

I don't know what to say today. Thirty days of blogging is a lot of blogging.

Anyone want to look for couches for us?
