Life Lately via Social Media

I was hoping to have a project for you today, but it’s not quite done yet. Someone really needs to create caulk/glue/liquid nails products that are dry and ready for sanding 10 minutes after application. Waiting 24 hours is not something I handle well.

So instead of beautifully styled shelves you get this:

I bought a bunch of 1×2’s and 1×8’s and I’m building some shelves in our (rarely blogged about) movie room because our hoard of box sets and autographed paraphernalia has gotten a little out of hand. The wood is up on the wall, and I added some liquid nails to the seams just to make it extra strong. Hopefully tonight I can sand and paint, then share the room with you by the end of the week.

Also, we bought new dining room chairs like a month ago. They are AWESOME and I am OBSESSED with them. Here’s an Instagram pic of them for those of you who don’t follow me there:

One day I’ll pack up the Halloween decor, do the dishes, and take a few nice pictures to show you the whole space. For for now all you need to know is that these chairs make me so very happy and I haven’t decided if I love the table with them or not. What do you think?

ALSO, one more update for you from my Twitter account:

I guess I’m going to be a real estate agent now? I don’t know what happened. One of my college friends texted me that there was a Groupon and let’s do this, and so now we’re doing it. We are going to 40 hours worth of classes, 8am-6pm Saturday and Sunday for two weekends in a row in February. The classes will get us the certificate we need to sit for the exam… I haven’t even looked into the exam yet. I haven’t even told my family I’m doing this yet (so yeah, mom and Nonna, uhh this is happening? I’ll call you! haha.)

My friend convinced me very easily by saying the worst case scenario is that we learn a ton more about real estate (and I reallllly like real estate so that’s cool). The best case scenario is that we build a thriving real estate empire and take over the world. It’s a win/win really.

 

Soooooo… those are some things.  It feels like BAM November is here and we are so BUSY and it WON’T STOP for months and WHY is it so dark because now I’ll really get nothing done. What’s happening in your life? 🙂

  1. That’s awesome that you’ll be learning more about real estate. I love all things houses especially the real estate aspect of it. Since I’m always thinking about resale it actually affects the way I design and upgrade my home. Good luck!

  2. You’ve been killing it lately! And yes! We definitely have the same chairs! Our chairs were starting to get wobbly before we moved, so all summer I had been looking for replacements. Great minds 🙂
    And yay real estate! I know in Utah the exam was really tough, but hopefully it’s not too bad for your state! It’s such a great tool to have. Nice to bring in some extra cash 🙂

  3. ha–career changes based on whichever groupons are available–makes as much sense as anything else! ;). And I love your new chairs. And you just reminded me about how I have to put Halloween stuff away, and that makes me sad and tired 😦
