No Favorites. I'm a Big Ball of Stress, Ready to Explode.


I'm pretty sure I'm too stressed to even begin to think about my favorite things from this week. If I had to pick, though, being unpacked would be one.

Grandma curtains would not.
Clogged gutters would not.

My awesome homemade curtains would. At least the one window that I finished.

My grandma lamps that I spray-painted brass would.

My zombie eyes would not.

My pimple-face would not.

The amount of money that we've spent would not.

Mike's built-in shelves would.
Being reunited with my iMac would.

My throw pillows would. The "love" one is from here.
My unmade bed and messy room would not.
And that's all I've got. 

[Hahaha, that rhymed.]

I'll do a home tour vlog... next week. 

And... here's a little TGIF treat for you all! Brooke, Jennifer, and Shelby have all graciously donated some prizes for you guys to win! There will be three winners of this giveaway - Each prize has a mandatory entry (follow the blog with GFC), and entries will be verified.

Just take your time and dont worry about it! You will get there! Who said you have to move in and it has to be picture perfect in two days? Stop putting pressure on yourself. Do something for YOU today! You need sleep too! Try and enjoy your day Alyx!

I agree with Laura! I know you want everything perfect right away, but don't kill yourself doing it! Moving into your first home is supposed to be fun. :o)

Did Mike build those shelves himself? I'm pretty impressed! He's not just a pretty face! ;o)

You two are acting so grown up, what with a house, STRESS, unpacking...

Go play tag for a little bit, k? I think you need it.

At least the built in shelves look really good? And look, he looks so happy painting them. :) Relax, it'll all come together!

Aaaahhhh! Grandma curtains! I love them sooo much :) You should see my grandma house, literally it is from the 1940's and full of old Babooshka stuff

Rima said...

girl i'm pretty sure you are tired! But one step at a time, next thing you now you're house is all set up (for a partaaay).

I think Mike has done really well with the shelves, I can't wait to see your curtains and I don't think you need to worry about perfection is frustrating, because everything SHOULD be perfect when you get there. Unpacking and sorting out sucks. Buying furniture and things like sandpaper suck. BUT that priceless moment when everything is done, you have a coffee in hand and you realise you're finished is soooo worth all of the rubbish. Stay strong....squeeze.
