So it’s no secret I have been a little distracted. If you know me in real life you are well aware that I am one stop away from looney town.
I had a proverbial bag of flaming poo left on my blog door step recently. You are requesting more life updates, and less endorsements, which I completely understand, so first things first, let’s address a few things:
1. I am aware there have been several reviews recently. I agree to product reviews months in advance, and they just all happened to fall right now, so sorry about that, it definitely wasn’t my plan. I tried my best to break them up with other content.
and 2. I get TONS of emails requesting reviews, endorsements etc… and I only say yes to ones I really actually use, like, and feel like promoting. 🙂
So now that that is dealt with… let’s move on, k?
This isn’t exactly how I had planned this post… but here goes nothing!
Yup. I bought a house.
Well, I kinda bought a house… I say ‘kinda’ because we haven’t closed yet…but I am living in the house…
VERY fortunately I know the seller, and he remodeled the entire thing for me, and we are just waiting on some final paperwork. And let me tell you… whoever said buying a house is fun, is LYING to you.
It is the most stressful process I have ever been through in my LIFE! Remodeling takes longer than expected, banks take longer than expected. I am not sure why they need a blood and hair sample (I kid I kid) but they really do… fun stuff right??
So, my lack of witty, quality life updates is mostly due to the fact that most days I am so stressed out I hardly make it till noon without a glass of wine, and partly because I have no idea where my computer is.
Once this is all said and done, I will be so so happy with my brand new PLL princess pad… it is just getting it finished that seems like a never ending process!
It is an older home, that has been 100% completely remodeled. Everything is new… and I maaaaaay have turned a bedroom into a closet.
YUP. sure did.
However my closet currently looks like this… because it is not finished and I cannot hang anything. haha 😉
It is a wonder I make it to work dressed in the mornings, because the dryer I bought isn’t working… so I can’t do laundry.
I found a leak under my brand new beautiful under mounted sink… so that was really exciting.
I ran into an uninvited house guest with longer legs than Sadie and nearly hyperventilated.
And to make matter worse, I constantly feel guilty about my poor, sweet roommates who have joined me living in said squalor. Chrissy is sleeping on the ground because her box springs won’t fit upstairs (awesome!)
Nicole seems to be the only one in the house who slightly has it together thus far…
At least we have copious amounts of wine? Glass half full people.
We also put the Christmas tree up this past weekend in attempts to make it feel more homey while we are in this funky transition phase. Now I have something pretty to look at besides my gorgeous wood floors while I sit in the living room without cable, and polish off the second bottle of pinot grigio, willing the bank to call me with a closing date.
Not ONE word about this tree being up so early… not.one.word.
Work is also crazy… it is my busy time, so my office looks like this:
And I am pretty sure I am developing some sort of stress rash on my neck…
I really am NOT complaining… it is straight comical at this point. I just want you all to know what the heck has been going on, so maybe it makes a little more sense why i haven’t exactly been myself lately.
cut me some slack, yo?!?
Squatting in a new house that isn’t officially signed sealed delivered mine for the past two weeks hasn’t exactly been the ritz. I will be one very happy girl when this is all said and done, and my crazy town life is returned to it’s somewhat normal state of blog posts filled with poofs and pugs.
Thank you for those of you who have stuck around, I love ya. Can’t wait to do a video tour,
