Change of Plans

Alright so in one of my last posts I said that I was staying in Provo for the summer. WELP, plans have changed. I will now get to spend the summer with my wonderful husband! Yay! Turns out that a nanny job I was going to take fell through and I realized I could take a few classes online. So the only thing keeping me in Provo would be my catering job. Not a good enough reason to be away from B for four months. So we will officially be living in Chicago again this summer. I have to say I was pretty bummed when he told me that's where we were going. I was really excited for some new adventures and different scenery. BUT, what can I do? After talking to B, (aka pouting) he made me feel much better. I don't even know why I was bummed in the first place. I just kinda had a bad taste in my mouth about Chicago, mostly because the last week and a half we were there I was incredibly sick. I could not get out of bed and I felt like I was dying. K, a little dramatic but it just sucked. Plus we were NEWLY newly weds and all I wanted to do was spend every minute with Branson. I was not a happy camper when he would leave for work every day. But this year we have a ton of friends and even some family that will be going out with us. I am really looking forward to it.

As for right now, I am in California for about a week or so spending time with my familia. It had been a long time since I had seen them and it feels great to be home. Unfortunately, the husband is still in Provo finishing finals. I finished all of mine by Tuesday and bounced as soon as I was done. It was a quick decision and I basically packed everything for the summer in a couple of hours. I'm sure I missed a thing or two.

One thing I love about being home is that my dad always has new ideas for home improvement. He LOVES projects and the best part is, so do I!!! I was blogging this morning and came across a ton of blogs that I fell in love with. Most of them were furniture blogs and here are some of the amazing before and after pictures that I adore...




This table cost the girl .99 cents!
(Not necessarily my fabric of choice, but such a cute idea!)

And one more...

I already have a mini project going that I will have to post soon.  And my dad informed me that he has some old furniture that I can have and transform. I'm really excited about this new little (or big) hobby that I have discovered.  DI, Goodwill, here I come!

You can find more of these pictures here, here, and here!
