This afternoon has been pretty productive around here in the Horan household! When we look at it, it really doesn’t look like we’ve made much progress but trust me…if I had taken “before” pictures, you’d see the difference!
Once Jay got home from his golf outing, the two of us started to tackle our spare bedroom. Ohhhh goodness gracious, the spare bedroom.
To give you a little bit of an idea on how Jay and I function, we tend to take a really.long.time to complete a project we’re not super excited about.
Case in Point: We’ve been living in our house since November 2008 and STILL have yet to turn our spare bedroom into an actual bedroom. BUT, we’re getting there!
First, we went through and cleaned out some clothes and shoes that we no longer wear or need. I plan on bringing all of these over to Plato’s Closet tomorrow to try and get a few bucks for. Anything they don’t take will just be donated to charity.
There were, however, a couple dresses that I couldn’t bear to just give away. I’ll be posting those on the bloggy this week to see if anyone is interested!
Once we cleaned out some of the “junk,” we started to assemble our new bed. YES, a new bed! We had it delivered on Monday from Sears after seeing what a great deal they were having. Honestly, we really were not all that psyched about buying a new mattress set, but we needed it.
So now, friends, we will have an actual bed for you to sleep in when you crash at the house. Get excited!
It’s still a work in progress, but this week, I’ll be on the lookout for a cheap new comforter set (any recommendations?) and hopefully start to work on painting over those pink walls. Sorry, mom!
(FYI: For those of you newer readers, you may not know that the house we live in is actually my grandparents’ old house. So our spare bedroom was actually my mom’s bedroom growing up. Pretty fun, right?)
Cody, of course, immediately found a new “hideout” spot under the new bed.
We haven’t seen much of him since.
After all of our hard work, neither of us felt much like cooking AND we were both in the mood for pizza. So what do we do?
We order a pizza from one of favorite local spots, that’s what!
Today, we ordered the Margherita pizza, which I thoroughly enjoyed two slices of. This pizza may, in fact, top their Mediterranean pizza. It was goooood.
We also stopped and picked up a movie from Redbox (The Other Woman…has anyone seen it yet?) so the two of us plan on planting our beee-hinds on the couch for the rest of the evening to watch it.
Hopefully I’ll also be able to get a few more chapters read in my book…I’m totally loving it!
Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
Questions for the Evening:
Do you enjoy taking on home improvement projects?
What do you tend to do with your old clothes?
