I am SO sorry for the HUGE gap in between this blog post. It seems like just yesterday I had my white board full of blogs scheduled for specific days. It’s so easy. It’s so easy to forget to pre-blog and plan out my week. I either feel on top of things or as if I am drowning with the things I have to get done.
So what have I been doing with my life since this huge gap of silence through blogging? I’ve MOVED OUT, ya’ll! I can’t tell you what an adventure this has been so far. If you haven’t been following me on facebook, Ben & I have been restoring his childhood home. It’s been a huge work load BUT we have loved every minute of it. I think when you start from scratch you can pick and choose what you like with ease. We have been going through Pinterest like a crazy. I chose very neutral colors so we could easily play around with furniture, art, and other decorations without having to worry what colors we needed to coordinate with. One thing I really wanted was to get most of the rooms painted before we moved in. That was a big project in itself BUT we completed all of the rooms that need to be painted. We are just starting to decorate…okay, I am decorating. It’s been such a blast. I can feel my inner Laurie Deadrick (my mom) coming out as I look at each room.
I’ve never lived with another person who hasn’t been a female roommate at college…or gay! So this has been quite a change. I will say that Ben is by far one of the easiest people to live with. One thing I can say we do really well together is, having our own activities. We both have friends together BUT we both have made sure to have things to do that get us out of the house to spend time with other people. It really helps!
I’m someone who knows what I want, almost ALL the time. So when Ben and I disagree, it’s really funny! I wish someone could film our conversations and how we end up talking about it. You can tell when I don’t want something the way he has it or when he thinks I am going a little overboard with the decorating. We have to do a lot of compromising in our house and that’s okay! We are a team…and we work together.
Here are some of the pictures of the house. This is the beginning to NOW!! There will be more decorations overall BUT this is the majority of the renovations.
