[ Georgia and Saturday morning coffee in bed // Couch squisher // Mangosteen Green Tea + Honey for an all-of-a-sudden cold // Pretty new $9 flats // A round of custom signs going out the door // Toby fell asleep mid-pizza slice (tuckered out from the move... and yes, we were eating pizza in the car ha) // Kitchen renovations 1 + 2 -- our kitchen feels so big! // My office is coming along nicely... // Lack of furniture in the living room (we moved in our old couch until we buy a new one) // So many pink kitchen appliances // New shoes galore! (both of these are Jeffrey Campbell!) // Husband's cute booty while fixing a leaky pipe // Got Mike a guitar shaped house key "just because" // Hall view to the bathroom + my office // Couch cuddles with my little // Valentine donuts are the best donuts // A pretty wedding gift surprise from Emilie // Our dream diner booth kitchenette! Totally going to open up my own "at home" soda shoppe! ]

Renovations are going well. We're finally in the "cleaning" stage and we're trying to make our home livable. The cabinets still lack painted doors, not to mention all of the interior (and exterior!) doors need to be painted in the house. We have so much furniture we need to build and we've hung nothing on the walls... I hate that limbo you go through when you're "moved in but still not quite moved in". It's fun to find a new home for everything but it's also exhausting. 

Today I'm trying to battle off a cold that came out of nowhere yesterday. I'd love to say I was planning on being super productive in preparation for the work week, but NCIS and a blanket on the couch sure does sound appealing... I mean, it's good to take a break every now and then, right? ;)

Happy Sunday friends!

  5. My thoughts when seeing the guitar key photo;

    And you have a diner booth in your kitchen! Freakin' awesome!

    1. No! We moved about an hour + a half into the country. We liked living in a city for ~7 years but we're trying to figure out where we want to really settle down :)

  11. Your house is looking great!! I love that area down there, so pretty and peaceful. My mom's mom's family is from Summertown & Mt. Pleasant and we still have family down there. My grandma's very first job was at a shoe factory in Hohenwald and my great uncle moved to Columbia and was the district attorney of Maury county for years and years. I have good memories visiting my family down there. Small world lol. Enjoy your country living!!! :)

  12. How cute is your kitchen?? I had no idea what was in store when you first posted about the floors and now I am super excited to see when everything's in place. The seating and table are absolutely DIVINE!

    Hope you had a chance to take a bit of a break this weekend! Feel better soon :)

  14. Where did you purchase your diner booth? It looks amazing! I'm a Teen Services Librarian and I'm on the hunt for booths to put in my library's teen space!

    1. We looked at buying one from RetroPlanet but we lucked out and found one on Craigslist a few hours away. They can be super costly (~$2000 each) so I'm really glad we found one on CL!

  15. Haha, we have that same Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie and my 3.5 year old not only loves it, but she shouts "TURTLES!" every time we're out on a walk and see one of those neighborhood watch signs with the picture of a criminal with a mask over their eyes.

  16. I hope you feel better sweetie, and yes breaks are great. I have been on the couch watching Law and Order: SVU all day I can't get away from the television haha. I also love how your home is coming along it looks beautiful and fun so far! I can't wait to make my own closet room when we get our first house! I love yours!!!

  22. "Husband's cute booty while fixing a leaky pipe"

    Sorry, but had to look to "make sure" and yes he has a cute booty on him. You're in luck! :]

    (Not saying my man doesn't have a booty, just making sure we're the lucky ones with men who have a good booty on them. We win!)
