Happy Weekend


Congratulations! You made it to Friday! I don’t know about you guys, but that’s a big accomplishment for me this week. Let’s just say, it’s been one of “those” weeks. Ya’ll know what I’m talking about.

Happy Weekend // 7thhouseontheleft.com

On the plate for us this weekend, we’re going to be re-painting the guest room. This is something I’ve been wanting to do for months – okay, more than that… well over a year. At least. We’re taking Nate’s advice and going with a color that’s warm, cozy and a bit unexpected for the normal guest room. Oh my goodness. It’s been two weeks since that happened and I still can’t believe I got design advice from Nate Freaking Berkus for our house. Crazy.

Other than painting, we’re going to be straightening up the attic a bit. It’s not a wreck or anything, there are just a few boxes that are out of place, some things that need to go up and some that need to come down. We’ve been putting it off until the weather was a little more bearable. Lucky for us, we’ve been in the beautiful 70’s all week so we don’t have an excuse to put it off another week.

Especially since this week has been so hectic, we’re also hoping to catch a little R&R. I’m hoping for Mexican take out, a few games of cards and Sinatra on the record player. Wow. That made us sound like we’re in our golden years, didn’t it? Oh well, I guess that’s how we roll.

Oh! Be sure to drop over to iHeart Organizing for the 411 on how we organized grilling essentials and outdoor toys (No, we don’t have kids, but as you’ll read, there’s a method to our madness) in our new outdoor space. Check out the post here.

Hope everyone has a great weekend! What will you be up to?

    I think each set of grandparents is taking one kid so hopefully I’ll have a rainy weekend of netflix and pjs!

    I have a question for you – the his and her faves in teh right bar on your page – you’ve each picked round mirrors, but they both actually link to Wired magazine. Where is the porthole mirror? Cause I think I’m with him! ha!

    I recently found this blog and I love it! I think this weekend will include boxing up some donations and some closet organizing, with the few outside projects for the hubs.

      I know, right!? hahaha
      At first I had “Nate Freaking Berkus”, but then I thought that would be overkill because that’s what I actually say out loud when I talk about him, haha. Is that weird? I’m sure it is.
