Weekend recap and a few house pics!

I know it's Monday and nobody wants to go to work today!!! So call out!

My 5 day vacation started last Wednesday and it was NEEED-ED. First off let me show you what I came home to! 

My giveaway from Taylor over at Goings on in Texas arrived. Seriously, 4 Essie polishes and hound stooth scarf and a $15 dollar gift card to Starbs. This girl is giving!!! She has giveaways all of the time on her blog and others, so go check her out NOW.

I actually feel like it's harder to go back to work after Thanksgiving than after Christmas. I don't know what hell is up with that. 
My mom hosted Thanksgiving this year and she did a fabulous job! 

And let's just talk about the edible and delicious home made pumpkin pie and turkey that I made. All. by. myself. I'm and no longer a turkey virgin.

I stuffed that bird so hard.

Since I'm the new Martha Stewart and our upstairs in almost done, I've been painting like a mofo. As I am typing this my hands are still covered in paint from yesterday. Sneak peak of one of the bedrooms upstairs..........(the walls are nakey so bare with me)

 This dresser was my brothers. His father recently gave it to me for sentimental purposes. It is maple and it had a shiny finish. After beating the shit out of it distressing it, painting it and staining it, this is the finished product. 
I'm in love!

This will be my moms room. NO, she doesn't live with  me. But occasionally on the weekends we have a girls night and stay up all night drinking wine sewing, she lives close enough away to just crash here. 
There are 2 more bedrooms upstairs and a bath, once those are done I will gladly share pics!!

  And just because I'm not tweeting about wine lately, doesn't mean I'm not drinking it. This was my little beverage station yesterday while painting the ceiling in the office.

 And if you don't follow me on instagram, you should! Because you missed this little set up yesterday.

 "Sssshhh, don't tell the bitch, but it's Christmas season"

Happy Monday Betches!!!


  1. Is that a wine box on a tool box? Be still my DIY heart. Love that! XO

  2. Yay for swag! Love your drink station! How convenient that it's a perfect fit. Made to be? I think so. The room looks really calm and tranquil. I'm sure your mom will love it.
