This man has been stuck with me for 6 years, as of February 11, 2019. Poor thing 😆 He definitely had no idea what he was getting himself into. Happy Valentine's Day to the only one willing to put up with me and my shit on a daily basis 💕 Tomorrow, I'll be cooking up some steak, lobster tails, broccoli, scalloped potatoes, and maybe even real scallops (or shrimp) to top off the steaks. I might even do the dishes afterwards 😱that'd be the real gift, right Aaron? 😆
If you missed it on my stories the other day, I finally hung my @e.d.e.n_a.n.d_c.o rack leading into Carl's room/the office. I AM OBSESSED 😍 I thought I needed to super clean the steer skull I hung above it, but I kinda dig the contrast of the grundgy bone to the ultra modern & clean lines of the rack 🐂 If you're looking for a cute rack that has function and affordability, go check them out. I snatched this one for under $30! If they ever decide to do a 7-peg, you best bet I'll be snagging one of those for our front entry, too. Hoping to add a few more key pieces to this room (outside of building the closet desk) later this week to complete it! I also plan on heavily cleaning Carl's futon this Friday... the amount of hair and slobber that boy gets on this thing is insane 🐶
Just some heads in glass containers... Everyone has at least one of these, right? Featuring: bobcat and raccoon
Where has the time gone? One year ago, I had my first seizure 🤯 I was angry that I couldn't drive, I was angry that I was on house arrest for two weeks, and I was angry that I wasn't permitted any alone time. I was angry at the paramedics for suddenly appearing in my living room, I wasn't nice when they told me I was wrong about who the President was, and my tongue hurt like a son of a bitch. I started driving again on Cinco de Mayo, and of course my first stop was a huge neighborhood garage sale. Not even six weeks later, and I was back in the hospital after another stinkin seizure. I'm less angry now. Annoyed, yeah. I didn't really like having to pick up my meds in the middle of an ice storm yesterday, and I don't particularly like shoveling most of my extra cash towards the hospital bills every check. But I'm not angry. The seizures really made me realize that I needed to slow down, stress less, and take better care of me. My friends and I can all joke now... Don't give yourself a seizure over it. 😜 I'm still learning to take better care of me, but aren't we all? So remember, when some turd cuts you off in traffic, when your meatballs fall apart in the pan, when your cat steps on your boob, or when you fall off of your porch because of ice... Don't give yourself a seizure over it 😘 (The expense really isn't worth it 😂)
F*** you, Tuesday. OK, now that that's out of the way, let's move on. There's an ice storm coming through tonight and we might lose power. You could say I'm less than enthused. Here's to candles, wine, and fully charged cell phones.
Our LP drops soon. Be sure to mark your calendars for February 31 😜
You'd think after four years, I'd have this room figured out... But not so much 😂 I've been working on rearranging the dining room walls a little bit this weekend & moved the bar shelving to the Keurig corner. Still working on the top shelf (there seems to be a lot of blank space around it), but overall I am much happier with how this looks & functions for us. Maybe this is the year our house finally is done and makes sense 😆
Finally February! Is it just me or did January seem to last 8x longer than usual? 😳 yeesh, you know it's bad when you say it's a balmy 16° outside, and you're not even kidding 😂 This whole polar vortex business really had me missing our time in TN & FL two months ago, where everyone was saying 50° was cold 😂 luckily this weekend it's supposed to be a heat wave, hitting a whooping 41° here in IL #hellyeah Bring on the slushy roads and the drippy icicles, I'll just pretend I'm back in Nashville with this cutie 😍👀
