Hey, friends!  How's it going?  I've been a little bit of a slacky-slackerson blogger lately.  Not because I'm lacking stuff to blog about, I actually have too much!  I am working on all kinds of fun things for the blog.  The problem is that I've got too many projects and nothing is complete.

And, even though I've got plenty of projects, I just keep adding to my list.  I recently made one little change to my living room which is turning into a complete makeover!


I got a pair of these lovely French script chairs for Christmas.  Well, actually... I picked them out and bought them and said they were  my Christmas present.  Does that count?  They were a crazy good deal (of course or I wouldn't have got them!) but more on that later...

These beauties suckered me into adding "living room makeover" to my already long list.  I'd been itching to do it anyway so these chairs were the perfect kick start.

So, besides the living room makeover here's what else I'm doing... because inquiring minds want to know.

This could also be called "Home Goals 2013" I guess.  It is still January after all...

Speaking of big reveals, did you see my beach themed master bathroom reveal?  Probably my favorite reveal to date!
