Three Things for Thursday

One



I like lace. It's the traditionalist in me coming out. Sometimes, I wish I had chosen the lace wedding dress that was my second choice when I was in the depths of wedding planning two years ago. It was such a pretty dress. (Not that mine wasn't. Mine was perfect. But, you know, sometimes I think about the other choices I could have made.)

Since I like lace, it's no wonder I find this headband adorable. It looks simple enough to DIY, but considering it's one of those things I may never get around to, perhaps I should just go ahead and buy it?

There may or may not be a serious house rearrangement coming. Am I the only one who likes to move things around every other month or so? Our house is tiny and awkward and I always feel like there is some better arrangement, something that will improve the flow around our couch and our coffee table, that will allow for easier organization and better breathing space. 

So, I rearrange, and two months later, decide the new arrangement just wasn't cutting it. Please say I'm not the only one...?

Are you wondering why I'm going through so many pains to get this place organized when we should be in the depths of renovations again? After all, organization understandably takes a lower position in terms of priorities when your house is covered in drywall dust and you don't have a roof, right?

We are making progress, but it feels so slow. This week, the Husband will be taking out paperwork into the city to make sure we have everything we need and submit it for approval. With building permits, we'll be able to get started with the shell, the portion of the reno that must go as quickly as possible, what with lifting the roof off to raise the walls and all. However, those building permits could take five weeks or more to come! So, until it actually starts? I'm pretending as if it's not happening at all.

  1. Ahhhh so exciting! Once you have those permits in hand you guys can get started. I will have to live vicariously through all of it hahaha.

    As for lace... also a fan and that headband is ADORABLE. If B ever decides to put a ring on it, I think I would wear a lace wedding dress. Love that traditional/vintage kind of look, especially for weddings!

    I won't be around tomorrow, so have a great long weekend girl! :)

  2. haha, rearranging things is something that drives me nuts and causes me stress! Darryl, however loves it. I grew up in a house where arrangements, even my bedroom, did not change for 20 years! I was also the wacko who refused to sit on our new couch for 2 months growing up (I sat on the floor) because I didn't like the change. I'm not that strange now I swear lol, I was quite young then, I'm learning to loosen up. But I still have to take a big, calming breath when I come home from work, open the drawer to use the spatula, thinking I'm losing my mind when I can't find it - ask Darryl if he knows where it is only to hear "oh yeah, I cleaned the kitchen, I put all the *blank* over here now". It really throws me for a loop!

  3. That's hilarious that you refused to sit on a new couch because it was a change! The things we do as kids, huh? :)

  4. He's taking them to city hall TODAY! So, fingers crossed, all goes well and in 5 weeks, we can get started!

    Thanks! I hope you have a great weekend over there in the west!
