I everyone! This week is already winding up to be a busy one for me, I am desperate for finding a way to fit more hours in the day. Or needing less sleep, whichever is easier to do. So, instead of my typical DIY or home decor post I am sharing the Behind the scenes happenings around here.
Next week I have a big announcement happening! Massive changes and exciting developments for this little blog of mine. The announcement and changes will be revealed on Wednesday! I will give one hint, I am not pregnant and we are not moving out of our home. I feel like as a blogger any teasing of news is met with expectations of baby bumps and cute squishy baby pictures. A home decor blog announcement almost always is a planned move. We are staying put, and no new additions are being added to our family.
I am however very excited for the newest development and have been beyond antsy to share it with you all! As you can imagine, there has been a lot of behind the scenes planning, scheming, and organizing. Which has limited my DIY and home decorating time, not completely though.
Tomorrow I will be revealing a new work space for me, which I am in lurve with! I also have on my to-do list plans to take and edit pictures of my hallway bathroom and master bedroom. My bedroom went through a few minor changes, just some new furniture items and rearrangement. Nothing fancy, but I like to share my home (kind of the point of this blog) so I have been planning to share it here.
This week I am also in Birthday mode, my oldest is turning 10 tomorrow! I am fine, really….. not really, not at all… not even a little bit! Guys, where does the time go?!!!! We had a sleepover last weekend with a gaggle of girls. Fun fact, squeals and giggles can be very loud. This coming weekend we are hosting a family party for her. No matter what is going on with home decor projects or this blog I am always in Mom mode, just the truth. I am either running them to activities, getting them to school, volunteering at their school, meetings for their school PTO, homework, huge, cuddles, giggles, breaking up fights between my trio… it is always something.
I am also revealing a updated hallway bathroom soon. The bathroom is a whole other saga that was forced upon me thanks to my wonderfully mischievous dogs Teddy and Finn. We had plans to be gone all day, and typically when we are gone Finn (who is 2 years old, but still very puppy-ish being a Lab) is in a dog crate when we are gone. He likes to chew and annihilate my throw pillows when left out of his crate. I should note that these bathroom pictures is what the bathroom was before, so this is not the after pictures.
Since the plan was for us to be gone all day I did not want him cooped up in his crate, I put both dogs in the bathroom. With their dog beds, chew toys and the light on. Let them roam without being stuck. We came home to a massive hole in the bathroom wall. They ate through the drywall! Had we been gone another hour we would have come home to see their faces sticking out the other side of the wall into the hallway.
The above picture is the damage done by them. They were fine, and very excited to see us. Zero guilt from either of them, I guess we spoil our furry babies. So a minor bathroom update was forced upon us thanks to Teddy and Finn. I have always been “eh” about the yellow in the hallway bathroom. Once we realized that the walls would have to be painted I was all for it.
I also did a few other minor updates, changing the theme of the decor and a few tiny changes. Nothing big here, the floors are the same and the shower is the same. We are still a couple years away from complete bathroom gut jobs around here. I will however be sharing the ever helpful tutorial on patching up drywall. Since this is something everyone will experience at some point. Maybe not the dog chewing through the wall, but a hole in the wall is likely to happen at some point.
With the new work space that you can see tomorrow I also have two new DIY’s featured in the space. One furniture project and one that is for wall decor. I have been so hung up on the Behind the scenes happenings that decorating my home has been slowed down a little. However, the extra work I am putting in for this blog will be revealed next week and I am sooooooo excited!
