On Me, Slacking

Oh so do you remember the house we moved into over a month ago? I was so excited when we were moving in to show "before and after" pictures of all the rooms and I am pretty sure I have only one room so far. Mostly because everything is still, to me, a scattered mess. Nothing is complete, and I am sure anyone that lives in a house can relate to that. What was I thinking, seriously? Did I really think the house would be all perfect in a few weeks. That's crazy talk.

Anyways, I am going to share some little things I have actually been doing.

Making pillows:


Painting dresser/nightstand:


Hanging pretty things:

Putting this together:



Oh, and this is the best part! This weekend while I was cleaning/organizing our guest room (post to come later!) the boys (Chris, Dad & uncle) were building a new fence.

Before:

And, after:



PS, sorry for some of the crapzor pictures - I'm too tired to edit anything :)

Moving in is hard work, I hear you. :( I still have a room I'm working on and it's been since July!

Oy.
