Wednesdays seem to always come out of nowhere and totally take me by surprise. In a good way and a bad way, I suppose. I’m always thinking of all the things I still have left to do in the week, but also thinking of the fact that it’s almost the weekend.
On Sunday of last week, Chad and I decided to do a little kitchen renovation. It’s hard to believe we’ve already been living in our new home for 10 months! We’ve done so much in that amount of time, and it feels as though we are almost finished. When we started our renovations last October, everything happened so quickly! We took down walls, we sanded, we ripped down wallpaper. The whole nine yards. I think we were just so eager to get all that ugly wallpaper down and a fresh coat of white paint up, that we didn’t really think about what we truly “wanted” each room to look like. So over the past several months, we’ve been able to transform each room into something we both desire. And on that note, for some reason, our kitchen had been bothering me for the past few months. Something just didn’t feel right. (It could have been the fact that we hadn’t even really finished painting it, so all of the edges and corners were still a hideous yellow color!) We mulled it over, and decided to do pine tongue and groove plank paneling (which is actually original to several of the houses here on the historical square). We have been working from after 5pm until almost 10pm every night since Sunday, and I’m getting so excited! I love the way it has turned out, and can’t wait to share it with y’all! I am so, so ready to be done with all of these house projects!
We did, however, get the chance to enjoy a little weekend break and go on a double date with some friends. Who, by the way, just closed on a house and are moving to historical Mckinney. They will be just a hop, skip and jump away. We couldn’t be more excited. You know when you meet those friends you just wouldn’t mind sharing life with? Yep, they fit the mold. We are seriously beyond thrilled. I’ve been doing little happy dances all week.
For casual date nights, especially on these hot summer days, I have loved pulling out these shorts. They are seriously some of the most comfortable shorts I have ever purchased. Also, if you don’t have one yet? You must go purchase a piko shirt from Riffraff. They have a million different styles, and they are quite literally the coziest tee you will own. They are stretchy, soft and could easily moonlight as pajamas. Also! Don’t forget, if you use the code “signeroo” at checkout, you get 10% off your order!
