Things around here

So last weekend I finally checked “organize the cabinets” off the to-do list and boy does it feel good. It was one of those things that needed to be done, badly, but I kept putting it off becuase I knew it’d be a huge project and it was, it really was. By the end of it I was exhuasted and maybe even a little grumpy, but mostly I was just relieved. I’m pretty happy with the end result and especially excited about my “go-to” draw that has one of everything that we use on a daily basis. Now rather than going from one drawer/cabinet to the next for those regular, just the two of us meals we can just go to one.

Later in the week I decided it was time to pull out the holiday decor and wow, I did not hold back!

Lastly, my sister and I came home from dinner to finish our gingerbread house… only we couldn’t because half of it’s roof was mysteriously missing! Mr. Bates, you look rather guilty! 🙂

Grateful for having finished painting our bedroom today! A bit more denim colored than what I was going for but I’m enjoying the cozy feeling its giving the space.

Thankful for this cute dude…

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!

Grooving

Ever feel like your brain is just twirling and swirling and there’s no end in sight? That is how I feel this week. There are so many loose ends in every facet of my life that need to be reeled in and sorted out.

Here are some of the issues at hand…
1. We spent much of our 4th of July weekend with Geo’s family and it was the first time we saw many of his family members post our engagement, so there was lots of wedding excitement going on. Which was great and so much fun to talk about, however I had kind of stopped thinking about wedding planning (I mean it’s over a year away, I’ve got ages to sort it out, right?), but after talking about it with them I started to think of ALL the things that need to get done, one of them being figure out the music. 
How are we going to get everyone off there butts, on their feet and GROOVING?! 
Since we aren’t serving alcohol at our wedding, we need to have killer music! We’ve started to put a playlist together but I’d love to hear if any readers (if there are any!) have song “MUSTS”. Two of our favorites are: 
AND
2. Since our wedding isn’t until October, 2014 we are going to use this year to save and hopefully purchase a house before the big day. I’ve been drawn to coastal towns for a long time and George grew up in one, so needless to say, we are both in love with a coastal town 🙂 Scituate, MA is perfectly us. 
One thing I’m not over-thinking or stressing about is my family vacation to Maine next week. I. CANNOT. WAIT.
