Growing roots.

The best part about our “retirement” is that we finally have the chance to sit still and plant roots. After much discussion we settled on the amazing southwest. We’ve been here almost 3 weeks now and it’s been great. The days are warm, sunny and breezy. Which is amazing for February seeing as much of our family is dealing with tons of snow and ice. While the weather is amazing, the best part for me is finally having the chance to make a home. In our previous homes I’ve never decorated much for fear of having to turn right back around and take it down. I’ve found myself addicted to Pinterest searching for inspiration for rooms and my eventual garden. Our taste are very vintage eclectic. We love metal signage, bright colors and bold statement pieces. The house we are in has a few accent walls but they are brown on tan. A paint job is needed. This is kinda the look and feel I am going for.

Wow, Last week was crazy busy for me. Lots of cleaning, celebrating and playing with Venom. This week is starting to be even crazier. More cleaning, Packing and preparing for Vacation that starts on Sunday. My darling Mr. Bones turns 30 next week so I am taking him to Boston for a Red Sox game. In turn he’s taking me to the Smithsonian on the way back home. I am so looking forward to the First Lady exhibit and seeing the first sewing machine, Ruby red slippers and the original Winnie the Pooh stuffed animals. Most of all I am excited to be creating memories with my husband and our Girls, even though Roo isn’t big enough to remember. My only wishes for this week are to have the house cleaned, us packed and ready to go before saturday so I can just sit and relax before leaving Sunday and to get a few tutorials photographed and set to post.

 I also have a bit of news to share, I was featured on the Action Hearing Loss UK blog about my battle and coping with Menieres Disease. You can read the article here.

    I love cleaning my house before a vacation also – because coming home to a clean home is the best thing ever :) I hope that you have the time you need to feel like you got your stuff done! I hate the anxious feeling of “there was something else I needed to do!” so I really hope you don’t have that :) Have fun at the baseball game!

      Thanks. I always feel like I am forgetting to do something. Thankfully I have been working ahead so there isn’t much left to do.

    I had no idea they had the original Winnie the Pooh stuffed animals in a museum! That would be a really neat thing to see! And I’m the same way with cleaning before a vacation. So that when I get home, I can relax!!

    I’m like you – I’m scrubbing my toilets right before I hop in the car and go on any trip – like I’m cleaning the house in case any “vistors” stop by!
