I'm foregoing any long diatribes about what I have been doing over the past few weeks and submitting, instead, a photo summary so that you can rest assured that I am still alive despite a 10 day boxing match with a certain cyclospora parasite which finally ended with me kicking that parasite in its parasitic testicles and emerging victorious!
Behold...my life over the past few weeks.
|I celebrated my 39th birthday and ate yummy cupcakes! My fave was a salted caramel chocolate cheesecake. But I managed to choke down most of the others, too.|
|Me on my birthday.|
|We have been visiting colleges with my oldest daughter who will graduate this year. This school is ranked #1 for cute boys. It's also #1 for being a school you will pay loans on for the rest of yours, your children's and your grandchildren's lives!|
|Us at the Horned Frog statue at TCU. Students supposedly rub his head for good luck on exams, although I never did that once when I went there. Maybe that's why I never did so well on tests...hmmm|
|I painted our entryway/foyer that I have been pondering and thinking about for several months. You can see some of my ponderings on the wall here.|
|Yes, it's black.|
|I also painted my bathroom black which has been my plan for a long time. The bathroom is going to be a big, costly project but having new paint for now makes me feel less 'I-live-in-a-crack-house' -y.|
|A rare moment of relaxation with the love of my life. And my husband. Bahahahaha! I love that man more every day! I love my dog, too but she poops on the floor too often. My husband almost never does that so I love him more than her.|
|I've also been spending lots of time with 3 of my favorite people in the whole world. They're total swaggy gangstas as you can see by this picture.|
|After chiseling off the layer of dust that had accumulated since the last time I cleaned these shelves, I styled them up all pretty and properly. Which took me about 2 hours because shelf styling is something at which I am completely inept. I used these pictures as my inspiration because there was no way I was attempting this on my own!|
|I also got around to staining my bar shelves that I installed several months ago. I styled these, too, but obviously am not quite done - updated photos for that gold frame are hopefully getting done today. Unless I can find something else to do to put that off for a while.|
|I know - a pile of ribbon is probably not the most exciting thing you ever imagined. But, I just bought a huge bag of remnant ribbon for a little over $1 and it's my inspiration for my next project which is this...|
|It's my really ugly sunroom which currently serves as a steam sauna/mosquito sanctuary. I've got some good stuff planned for this room but it's definitely not going to happen overnight so you should come back soon to see how things are going.|
Okay, so that's what's I've been up to in a nutshell.
If you're already following me on Instagram then you've probably seen several of these photos so I apologize for the redundancy.
If you're not following me on Instagram but want to see some of my daily 'Life and Love' then feel free to follow/stalk me.
See you soon, peeps!
À la vie et à l'amour
