Hey there! Hope you had a lovely Easter weekend! We had so much fun. With our activities this weekend I didn't get a whole lot of DIY done and it was wonderful. :)
I had to laugh as I walked through our house yesterday afternoon...it seems that literally no matter what room I'm working on, the rest of the house goes to crap. I mean it -- I am simply unable to keep up with room makeover and keep the house somewhat picked up. Lately this is because of the upstairs bathroom redo.
I've known this for years now. I thought it would be different when the room I'm working on is one of the smallest in our house and I can even close the door and totally ignore it all, but no. It hasn't made a difference at all. It's a phenomenon I can't explain. :)
Because I know it can get discouraging at times to see all the totally put together spaces on blogs and social media, I decided to show you our house as it is right now. I only cleaned up trash, because gross. Otherwise this is how these spaces look right this second. I spared you the worst messes (the basement is a total disaster right now) but this gives you a taste of our house at the moment.
I have to laugh when I see perfectly lovely nightstands because that's just not the norm in our master bedroom. I at least clear them off when I take photos:
But this is the norm. Stacks of books and magazines and random stuff. Usually there's a few water bottles on there but I did clear those off:
We bought that back massager (on the floor) at our local home show and it is AMAZING. It is perfect for my lower back. I'll have to find it online and share with you sometime.
And of course...the bed isn't made. ;) But my excuse today is that I'm washing the sheets. (I have no excuse for all the other days.)
I've made it a goal for our home that every room is used. Our living room isn't a "fancy" room -- it actually has the comfiest couch in the house:
Easter hit this weekend and it has ...
