It was super fantastic seeing all of our good friends! Everybody was so generous and brought such great gifts...even some for Brutus! Our friends, Emily and Nick, brought us a frozen Giordano's pizza from Chicago and we are SERIOUSLY so excited to devour it tonight! Thanks so much everybody!
So, I'm going to quit chatting up the storm and just come out and say it...I DIDN'T TAKE ANY PHOTOS! I know, can you believe it?!? I just really didn't feel that well; so I'm going to make up for it by posting pictures of the house! WAIT, there was one photo from the day of the party....
....the keg! LOL, sorry but like I said I'm going to totally overwhelm you with house
So, one of my projects before the party was to clean out our garage. Now if you look at the photo below, it's really not that bad, I know. But everything was just so cluttered and didn't have a spot. So, I changed that of course!
Ahh, much better!
So, during the whirlwind of moving, I won a free e-design package from Julia's blog with the lovely Michaela!! I knew right away I wanted to do our entry way because it is less than fantastic! Michaela was sooooo wonderful to work with and honestly, it was the easiest thing ever! We loved her first inspiration board she sent over! We certainly are not finished yet, but we did get something together for the party. Here is the inspiration board:
I think it looks better already! We love the idea of painting the door black.....but we are good with not doing any house projects for a while! It will be the next project!
Ok- another before and after for you gals! So, I picked up this mirror from Home Goods and I wanted to give it a little white wash to go with everything in our family room. I started doing the project, and thought "crap, I need to take a "before" picture for the ladies on the blog-land." So while I have already started white-washing in this photo, I tried right?!?
So the photos really don't show a HUGE difference; but, the mirror picks up so much more white in our family room. I promise!
Wait wait wait wait, what's that? You said you would like to see it? Ok, ok. And, I am super excited to show off those rustic pieces I found also at Home Goods!
Well, if you made it to the end of this post- you deserve a medal. Hope you had a wonderful weekend and I'm excited to catch up on all of your blogs!
