How is it possible that it has been nearly a month since I have posted?

It has been one of the craziest months I have had in a while. The good news though, it ended in us getting into our AMAZING (if I do say so myself) house! We have been unpacking like mad men/women, and still aren't even close to done. Do you ever do something and feel like you have spent a whole day doing it but you didn't actually get much accomplished? That is how this move is going. I swear I spent a whole day unpacking and putting stuff away, and if you had seen our garage before and after you would of sworn I hadn't done a single thing. Although I did also spend an hour and a half busting my butt to try to clean our patio set (that was brand new before we moved). That also didn't look much better afterwards. I will be back at it again this weekend, this time with bleach in hand. I am coming for you, you yucky mildew. I had a friend tell me to use bleach from the get go, but of course I was a scaredy cat, and went for mild dish soap (per online directions). What a waste of time.

FOCUS MEL! (you don't even want to know how many times a day I say that to myself, it's pretty sad). I get off topic or distracted so easily these days.

Now back to our regularly scheduled program...

So I know some of you have been dying for some pics. I have been so hesitant to post because I am not even close to done decorating and am not sure I like where I have put things yet. We have only been in our house a week and I have already moved things around over a dozen times. So here I go reluctantly posting some pics. I will probably post more once I am done (well I will probably never be "done", but at I will post them once I am at least satisfied for the time being.) Did I mention I love decorating?! :D
This couch is temporarily there. I just can not decide on new furniture. I was all set on these Spa colored sofa's but now I just think it will be overwhelming and decided just to get the matching chairs for the kitchen sitting area and the same colored stools. I think I like the tan color in the room, plus it is easy to change decor color in the future if I don't purchase colorful couches. 
I have since put the Keurig under the counter, man do those babies take up a good amount of space. I just didn't want the counters to look to crowded. I need to do a close up of the decor in the kitchen, it is really hard to tell what is going on in this pic. 
SO now lets take a look at the love of my life... my teal credenza. Oh, how I love thee. But... I  just can not decide what to do with this darn mirror. I know I want it here. Just not sure if I should hang it, prop it, have it vertically, or horizontally. Greg says hang it. He doesn't like the propped look. Plus I guess it will add height either way I hang it. SO... I am going to make him hold it up both ways and take pics and figure it out from there. I really wish I were more decisive sometimes. Well really I wish that ALL the time. I can never pick a place to eat without a never ending "You pick. NO. YOU pick." discussion. Greg likes to call them "arguments". LOL!
So there is a little bit of the house. I swear I will post more tomorrow. (or the next day, or the next day.)


  1. Love it - i've been waiting forever for a new post and house pics :) I vote hang the mirror horizontally. The horizontal photo you put looks nicer how it takes up more of the wall width. Hanging it will allow you to get it a little higher (achieving some of the nice height in your vertical photo). Plus, if the kids go knocking into your credenza I'd hate to see the propped mirror fall and break on one of them! Just my two cents. Maybe I'll get to see it this weekend?

  2. Lol everyone keeps mentioning how it would fall lol, I should of specified we would of anchored it to the wall. :) what day are you guys coming up?! I'd hope you'd be staying with us! So you'd better be seeing it :)

  3. Oops I meant next weekend for Easter. And I doubt we are staying with anyone but I hope I get to see it :) We have an engagement dinner to go to Sat night so we might just come for easter dinner.
