Case in point: two weeks after my undergraduate graduation I had my wedding. Twelve days before the wedding I accepted a job, only to retract and take a different job two days later. At the ten day point before the wedding, was also when my fiancé and I had to completely DIY our decorations thanks to an exuberent bill from a wedding rental place. Everything turned out well, but it was a lot in just a couple of weeks.
This last week, my craziness came in the form of paining three rooms and a wall before a house guest arrived, and finish up my Master's portfolio, due Friday, but I'm turning it in early hoping that if anything looks lacking, I'll be told and can fix it. Throw in hosting a birthday barbeque, moving the house guest in, and I'm wiped out, but everything got done! (Except this post going out on time, can't win them all, haha!)
|Everything was the color of this trim when we moved in...|
|Even the window trim & heater was painted!|
|Don't worry, shag is coming out soon!|
|No more 70's light (added a new air vent).|
|Covered up the paneling and the radiator|
|Even the windows turned white!|
|Yes, even the sink, toilet, and tub are pink. To be changed later|
|So much brighter!|
More paint... little bright orange bathroom, most of the orange is gone!
|Orange, orange, walls|
|Weird place for a breaker box...|
|Lighter and brighter, but the paint didn't stick to the breaker box... off to get a better paint soon!|
Dining room was next...
Since it's Monday... I'm also hosting my "Eating, Drinking, or Linking" linky for any fun recipes or restaurant recommendations. Help me spice up my menu, link up any of your family favorites!
Sloppy Joe's another of Pioneer Woman's recipes (trend here..) the hubby loved them! We definitely won't be making them from the can or packages anymore! I didn't add as much garilic, just a couple of cloves, and I didn't have dry mustard on hand. Still tasted super; we'll be making these for the niece and nephew soon! Click here or the the picture below to see step by step photos for this recipe!
