Good Evening

Last night that is... :) MrHoppy and I haven't had an evening of just us in a long time. Where we just sit and talk, catch up and laugh with no interruptions. We finally had one last night and it was much needed. I loved it.

We talked about all my ideas for our house. Just little things to update it, change up our decor and make it exactly how we want it. I was surprised and so happy when he was totally on board. Most of the projects will be inexpensive but a little time consuming. And with most of them I'll need his help so it was important to me that he be interested and willing.

He was even more excited when I showed him some of the blogs I read about home renovations. So much so that he busted out the rope lights we've been storing in the garage and not using because all the brackets they attach to on the deck were broken... in one Summer... grrrr... annoying. But they came in handy anyway! He installed them above the kitchen cabinets so we have some mood-lighting in that room now! It was so quick and easy and really makes a difference.

Tomorrow we're planning to spend the day shopping for a few items. An entryway table or bar cabinet is first on our list. We know what we want and we aren't going to settle for less! Since everything needs to stay in budget we'll check out Home Goods, Gordman's, Hobby Lobby, Michaels, and even Goodwill. You never know what you'll find!

What is everyone else up to this weekend?

  1. Good luck with your shopping! I have been in search of an entry table but everything I want is flimsy or expensive so I was on the D&R boards and someone posted this site: and I'm so in love with so many things! I am going to make my own table. Now I just have to figure out how to get it done before Thanksgiving...
