Hey strangers! I am sort of stumbling my way into 2019 here on the blog. After 2 great weeks off with my kids on break, a week in Mexico celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary with the Mr., and a snow day this week for my kiddos – reentry into the real world has been a little rough! My phone wouldn’t even recognize my face after I worked out on Monday. It was all “oh wait, you aren’t stuffing your face with a taco or a margarita, who are you?” :) I always hit this weird creative slump in January as well. The holiday season is crazy for blogging and I feel like all the Christmas hoopla sucked the last idea out of my brain. Don’t get me wrong, there will definitely be some fun design content coming this year…I just haven’t gotten there yet.
Some of the things I’ll be working on soon –
Our living room – we are getting new furniture! I’m so excited, if you remember this blog post way back when, this couch was bought after a round of margaritas with the Mr. (lots of tequila involved into today’s post apparently). I love the size and shape and comfort factor, but I was hoping for a more linen like fabric. The thought was we would buy this for now, to eventually put in the basement while I search for my dream couch. Guys, dreams come true and it’s being delivered in February. This cozy sectional will be right at home in the basement and our basement Ikea furniture is heading to my brother’s house. So a win, win all around.
The basement – I’m sure this room will get a little refresh with the upstairs furniture heading down here.
Green table – Remember the hunt for something under this table (read about it here)? I finally found it! The cute ottomans I found have spurred a little makeover of this space that I will be blogging next week-ish.
Kids rooms – I helped my brother out with his 3 year old daughter’s bedroom, and I’ll be helping him with his younger daughter’s room as well. I just need to get myself over there to shoot it one of these days.
Son’s bathroom – I’m still on the hunt for wallpaper in here…
Master bath refresh – I haven’t shared our bathroom in a year and a 1/2 and I’ve made a few fun changes in here since then.
Master bedroom – Ok this room has been my everest. In our last house it was the playroom, but in this house it’s our bedroom. I just can’t seem to get it totally right in here. I’ve switched the bedding a few times and the rug, but I think it boils down to the furniture. My $15 flea market nightstands were intended to just be place holders until I found the right pieces and it’s time I tackle that. I’m on the lookout for something with drawers, because we could both use more practical storage. I’m craving cleaner lines. Stay tuned for more changes in here.
Mudroom – I totally forgot to blog this room minus this sneak peek when I blogged about the laundry room. Coming soon.
See – I’ve got ideas! I just need to make them all happen yet :)
On the non-design side of things, I plan on blogging about our Costa Rica trip and our Mexico trip. More recipes, random thoughts, parenting stuff, book recs, and clothing finds coming your way too.
Wow, I’m feeling behind now reading about all my grand plans! I hope you had a great start to the new year (possibly more productive than mine) and happy weekend!
