Hey everyone! Happy New Year!!
Big happenings around here lately. First, I told y'all that DH bought me a plasma TV for Christmas. Well, we wanted to mount it on the wall, but DH couldn't settle on a position. I was starting to get annoyed, and he finally told me that the reason he was having such a hard time is because he just absolutely hates the living room
It's a teeny room with a closet that isn't used at all in one corner, that makes it an awkward shape and takes away precious floor space. So we ripped out the closet last weekend
Of course, then we had to paint that wall, and decided to make it an accent wall, and paint it a deeper green than the rest of the room. What's awesome about that is that when you've got the TV on and the lights off, the wall just totally disappears.
And, of course, we also had to do something with the carpet. So we ripped out the old one and put down a new berber. (I've had the windows wide open and the doors to the other rooms closed to try to get it to offgas as much as possible
And, while we were at Home Dumpo, I found bamboo shades that look totally awesome in here, for SEVEN bucks!
So, in a weekend, I've basically redone my entire living room. I felt like I was on one of those home decorating shows on TLC
This coming weekend, we should just need one more day. We have to paint the OTHER wall the closet was on, but that's just a little space, really, and we need to get a cabinet or somethign for the stereo components and then run the wires in teh walls for them and the TV. Right now we've got the wires hanging down the wall
And the moulding. And then we're done and we have a totally new living room.
And it feels HUGE.
My best friend is coming to visit at the end of the month
I'm way excited. it's mostly a "business" trip.
She's coming to film some footage for a commercial for our business. Then she'll bring it all home and edit it for us, too. I love her
We're also thinking of opening our own webstore.... so I ask you, ladies...What would you want to see in a natural family living/baby webstore?
She's already a retailer for Maya. And we're thinking kissaluvs and bummies, too. But we're open to any and all ideas.
And then, for the final bit of news, that I'm afraid to talk about, because I'm afraid to jinx it. DH and I finally decided to really "try" for number two.
Y'all know I've been unofficially trying for months
But now, he's totally onboard...which has been totally fun
And, anyway, point is, I'm right smack dab at the beginning of a real, honest to goodness two week wait. And I'm pretty confident we caught the egg.
I'll keep you guys posted, of course.
