Weekend Blues

Today's outfit is inspired by yet another Pinterest image -- the main source of my inspiration lately as my mind's been on grown-up responsibilities. After 3 years of on and off house hunting, bf and I are finally homeowners! We haven't moved yet because although the home is in move-in condition for most people, I'm one of those who like hardwood floors everywhere. Aside from new flooring, I'm most excited about my our new closet. It's bigger than what we have now so I'm willing to share, hahaha.

Currently on the to-do list and my plans this weekend: putting up blinds. My wrist is already sore from installing two, with too many more to go. I can already see it now, home improvements on the weekends for the rest of my life. What did I sign myself up for?! All whining aside, this is what we wanted, so I couldn't be happier. A good start to 2012 with perhaps more exciting times to come? ;)

    1. I can't make promises because I've never had to decorate before, haha. We'll see if my copying skills (been browsing Pinterest for interior decorating ideas) are worthy of pictures ;)

    1. For you, Kimmie, I'll put up closet pics. I know how nosy you are when it comes to other people's closets. That's not an insult, cuz I'm the same way, hahaha.

  11. Congratulations!!! Such an exciting time! Our first house was a townhome that we were determined to fix up and be handy with. We ripped out the carpet and put in Pergo since we heard that was easy to do. Days later (and after several scary sawing attempts), our floor was "finished." The middle looked perfect! The sides...well, that didn't look so hot but we were darn proud of ourselves LOL.

    I love this look and want to try cuffing my boot-cut jeans too! Am wondering if this works primarily for the long-limbed :D

    1. You and your husband have got guts! I'm afraid to even drill holes in the walls because I'll probably make a bigger mess, haha. I really want to put up those floating shelves in a couple of rooms, so I better get over this fear of mine fast ;)

      Do try the cuffed bootcut jeans look! I'm pretty evenly proportioned length-wise and might have "cheated" a bit with the camera angle so I "look" taller, lol.

    1. I'm already feeling the pain of my bank account. Never will I be "rich" again, lol. Sob story aside, hopefully I'll be able to decorate half as well as you!

  19. Congrats on the new purchase! It will be worth it, I also delayed moving into my condo because I was putting in floors (though I left carpet in a few rooms). Please show pictures when it's done, I love looking at gorgeous wood floors :)

  20. Congrats on the new purchase! It's so much fun to take a new house and add your own touches...it's almost worth the hassle of moving to start from scratch :)

    1. We finally got off our lazy bums and moved this past weekend. Oh my gosh, I hope it'll be many years down the road before we have to move again, if ever! But like you said... it's "almost" worth it ;)
