puppy surgery

I have spent a lot of time in the house this weekend, because our puppy, Ellie, got spayed on Friday and I have been a really good den mother and have tried to subdue the eight month old pup so she can heal. Do you know what it is like to try and keep a Jack Russell calm while wearing a cone around its neck? I think I would rather rip out my own toenails. It has been enough to make me crazy, but look how pitiful she is...

dining room update

Here is my plan for the dining room so far...


I want faux bamboo chairs in white like the ones below, but haven't been able to find any yet...

Picture from here

past due update

I am a little behind on blogging, what's new?

We had a good week at the beach. The weather wasn't the best, but it was still vacation. I got to hang out with this guy a lot...my much taller yet younger brother. 



Since my return there has not been much house progress, just a lot of half finished jobs and it is starting to drive me crazy.

Here's what I've got...
Abby got a fancy new bed from OKL
Bedroom paint samples...no decision has been made yet.
new bookshelf for the office...Joe styled it himself
I know, it's not too impressive.

summer craziness

It's sweltering in Atlanta, as well as most of the country right now, and I all I can think about is leaving for the wonderfully remote Outer Banks next weekend. Here a glimpse of what I will be enjoying...
