Vacation Time

July 17, 2008

Ok, I swear I posted this last Friday. But apparently it was just sitting here waiting in my drafts folder all week. Whoops! Anyway, if you were wondering where I’ve been I was away on vacation. After 4 days of lounging on the beach I am back fully relaxed, recharged, and about half a shade darker (damn Northern European skin won’t tan for anything!!)

This is one weekend after a ridiculous week of work, where I will not be doing anything. Unless anything mean laying on the beach, drinking margaritas, and eating disgusting amounts of shellfish and cheese fries.

Unfortunately my ass will be in Jersey and there won’t be palm trees. Whatevs.

See you on Thursady!

Now featuring green(er) walls

July 4, 2008

Well, I had another crazy week at work. And as we all know by now, when work is crazy and stressful I don’t take the weekend to relax. I do all of the chores that I’ve been putting off for months. Yes, I’m apparently a masochist. Anyway, this time was no different, and I finally got around to painting the dining room liek I’ve mentioned on here oh so many times. I pretty much love it. It took forever to find the “right” green but we did. And it’s awesome. It makes the white of the trim really pop (and we have some awesome trim under the windows. Gotta love old houses!) and the color of the furniture really plays off of it well. Now, to get around to finding that chandelier that I need to finish it…

Before: Yucky pistachio-ish walls that did nothing for the space

After: Now that’s what I’m talking ’bout!
