Yes, I was dealing with sicknesses of both my parents :( and putting some longer hours at the office :( :( but really, I was just concentrating on spending time with my family and trying to set a schedule around here.
It was a relatively unproductive summer, but I am happy with what we did do:
~ Finished the fence and laid sod in the backyard (as previously blogged about). It took us forever to get our butts in gear, but seeing Finley do crazy laps in the yard makes ut all worthwhile!
Yup, that's it! haha whoops!
So, I guess it's time to get back on track and get things going around here.
First up, I mentioned http://prettylittlethingsforhome.blogspot.com/2011/07/vacation.html>here about how we really needed to get started on completing our master bedroom. So that's where I have decided to start.
This weekend, I took a leap of faith and decided to go and order the two sets of blinds we were missing for our master bedroom. For the record, I ordered them over two years ago, before we even moved in and waited and waited for them. Only to weeks later find out they were never coming - those sizes were discontinued(??) I was told.... I did a search the other day and found the blinds were still/once again(?) listed online. So I am praying that they magically are available again and come next week, since the anticipated date is November 4th. (fingers crossed for me).
(this photo shows one of the windows that needs blinds; the other is in the closet)
Up next, I am determined to finally complete our headboard. The wood base will be moved into the basement this week and I just have to commit to a fabric, buy the foam and execute the plan! I'm taking fabric suggestions.
