Back to Work...

Well, I'm back to work. I can't believe that 4 months flew by since I left the office for maternity leave.   Now real life begins as a working mother, and guess what?  I'm TIRED!!!  However, coming back to work will afford me a few luxuries that I've missed.  Such as, I can stay current on the news, blog again and make sure that bills are paid on time (didn't know how much I depended on the bill pay feature of my bank).

Coming back to the office will also get me started on some big projects for the house.  First, we will say goodbye to white walls!! I know that many did not wait until 10 months inspection, but we did.  I'm glad we did so, as I would be really annoyed seeing my nice painted ceiling and wall ruined by a nail pop.  Speaking of nail pops, did anyone request that they fix the nail pops with screws?  I heard that just nailing it back is not a long term solution but screws very well could be the remedy. 

Additionally, I'm super exicted to have Alexis Ellison, a gifted seamstress and designer to come by our home for a consultation tomorrow.  Alexis is gifted and uber creative.  She will create custom window treatments for my daughter's room, our room, the dining and family room.  She will also reupholster my dining room chairs. So stay tuned for upcoming pics of her work.  

Once I get my colors together, I will be at my favorite store on the planet--HomeGoods to look for some over sized art pieces for our foyer.  I am just salivating thinking about the fun I will have in looking for art, choosing fabrics, and selecting paint colors and molding. In the meantime, happy building and decorating!

    Amen sista, I remember that feeling. Don't worry it gets better!

  2. Hi Danielle, nice to see you here! I went back to work for 4 months until Friday and back on the home front! I am TIRED too! I get the opportunity to focus back on the house before going back to school. I can't wait to see the lovely window treatments and other goodies you have been planning for in your new home. How is motherhood and the baby?

  3. Thanks for your comments. Motherhood is WONDERFUL and the baby is GREAT! Going to be posting soon on a few cornices that I like...stay tuned.
