Today

 Today I...
-Wished I was this guy
-Test drove slipcovered sofas at Crate and Barrel and fell in love a little. Or a lot.
-Started a painting and furniture plan for the new house

-Changed the address on all of my magazine subscriptions
-Scheduled the disconnection and reconnection of all of my utilities
-Finished packing up the studio


-Shopped for a media console to hold the big stupid TV that I gave in and bought for Sweet Hubby (and which I LOVE)
-Resisted the lure of over priced pretty chippy wood and paint
-Counted how many days are left until I start sleeping in my new house (10).

What did you do today?

  2. Oh that all sounds lovely! An exciting time for sure. Today I went to work, drank coffee while admiring the spring snow flurries outside my window and hung up Easter decorations. :)

  4. Ooh, love your style! I just ordered a sofa from Pottery Barn, my family thinks I'm nuts(for ordering furniture online), but I say go for it!

  5. I had lunch with a friend and then tried to teach her how to crochet. We laughed more than anything. Somehow I don't think she will get further than making chains. :) Good luck with the move and settling in. Have a great rest of the week. Tammy

  6. 10 days! That is coming fast. I am thrilled for you and your upcoming move.

    Today, I am nursing a cold and I worked on a HUGE mosaic birdhouse, that I am entering in a bird house contest and a local venue.
    Hugs,

  9. I remember how excited I was before moving in to my house! I could not stop thinking about what furniture, colours, etc. I would use. Oh the anticipation! It's so great you are living in the Village now. Best of luck with the move-in. Don't get too tired, stop and have a good meal(not cooked by you) when you are done. xoxo Lana www.lifeatwildberrycottage.com

  14. I've been thinking about you a lot recently, as we just sold our house & will be renting while our dream house is built! I'm also in dreaming & planning mode, filling my pinboards on Pinterest with lots of ideas.

    Today is filled with lots of getting our current house ready for the closing. All kinds of repairs going on for the inspection items...!

    Can't wait to see what you do with your new home.

  17. love the chippy wood painted hutchy thing. no way to rationalize, eh? no worries because you have a magical touch so whatever you do or buy or make will be wonderful.

    i'm supposed to be doing a lot today but had to take a pause when i saw miss jen had a new blog post.

    remember: during a move, all take-out dinners can be rationalized. ;)
