My Job In Another Life

Closing on our house looks promising for May 31st as planned. We have movers and the security company scheduled, so hopefully we won't be pushing closing back. That being said, we are going to be sticklers about the walk through. This is our second time to build a home, so we know we need to inspect it thoroughly before signing the dotted lines. Question: where's your favorite online stores to buy furniture/decor from? In another life, I would be an Interior Decorator, but unfortunately that is not a knack that I own.
I am wishing I was attending Radiant Conference in person at our church, but alas, our weekend is jam packed with events so I couldn't buy a ticket. I am likely going to purchase an online viewing ticket and tune in when I can though. Hashtag winning.

"The baby" as I like to call Kensington cut her second tooth a few nights ago (5/8/16) and she is taking it like a pro. I can't actually believe how much joy I get from mamahood. I'm so serious.
More house talk: other than the playroom being one of my favorite rooms in the new house, I'm also obsessed with our laundry room. It's not only spacious, but one of my favorite chores to do is laundry... so I envision spending a lot of time in there. Actually this is a good time to point out that I truly LOVE being a Homemaker. It's absolutely the career for me. I get so much happiness from keeping up with the house. And yes, I treat it like my job. But going back to the laundry room talk, I am Pinteresting my little heart away with ideas and I'm pretty sure this is ideal. I need to find a way to copy this!
This meme is extremely inappropriate and I wish it had more acceptable language, but I still laughed at it.

There are two types of people in this world: those who do like pickles on their chicken sandwiches, and those who do not. I lean towards the give-me-all-the-pickles side. The Chick Fil A just down the road from us has been closed for renos for the past month-ish, so I haven't had my abundant fix lately. However, they reopen tomorrow and I'm sure you can guess how excited I am.


  1. Oh my goodness - give me all the pickles, too! Seriously can't get enough. Also, I totally feel you on the interior decorating thing! I wish, but it just doesn't happen haha. I'm so excited for y'all to be closing so soon!! It's all gone by so fast and I know y'all are stoked to move in and make tons of memories!!

  2. LOVE that laundry room! That gives me some ideas, our needs updating bad! Chick Fil A must be doing renos a lot of places right now one of ours is in the same boat, luckily there are two other stores around! haha

  3. I can't believe you're closing on your house so soon!!! That is so exciting! I can't wait to see how you decorate it - it'll be beautiful!
