Projects, projects & more projects

In case you've been wondering where I've been...I'll tell you.

Two weeks ago our car went caput...which lead to a week long journey to buy a new one. Needless to say there was tons of research, phone calls, and hours of haggling involved. In the end, we came away with an AWESOME car.

Last weekend we went to visit nephew #2 for the first time. He's a little doll. And boy did we enjoy the new car... :)

The yard and the house have kept me busy, busy, busy. My roses are doing well, the veggie garden is weeded and growing. It's almost time to set out my tomatoes and peppers. It's time for some container gardening...once I get the porch and deck repainted/stained. Which means calling in the pressure washing guy. And the lawnmower still needs fixing.

I've been wanting a new bedspread for a while now... something lighter, cleaner...summer ready. I've been wanting white.

White?!

In this family?? Big dog. 2 fuzzy cats. Laid back husband...

Imagine my shock when we came home from Target the other day with a beautiful white and taupe bedspread...DH says "we might as well see if we can live with white." So now I'm protective. No dog on the bed. All pets (including husband... ;) ) must be supervised. Absolutely no eating in bed.

Not sure if I like this new protective side, but I love how clean the room looks. And that it's making me tackle the rest of the room...like curtains... and accessories. I can't wait to show it off. I even have an orchid on my nightstand... WHOOP! I'm afraid I'm going to need some help finishing this space. And then I'm heading for the bathroom...it needs a paint job.

I have big plans, people. Big plans. And as soon as DH gets home (my camera is in the car) I'll have pics!

I actually think that white and taupe colors are pretty good at masking the occasional pet hair.
Im pretty convinced, that your DH will blend in just perfect :) I know mine does!
