Happy Friday ladies! No dressing room diaries this week, just a quick life update. I figured you wouldn’t be interested in seeing closet inserts, flooring, dishwashers, ovens, drawer pulls, etc. That’s what I’m shopping for this week…in between tossing things into a suitcase for the cruise we leave for on Sunday.
We picked up the keys this week and celebrated in our new backyard.
The home we bought is lovely…but dated and worn out in places. Much like things many of us hold onto in our wardrobes. We’re not gutting this house but we do need to update things and give it a bit of a facelift.
The kitchen and bathrooms need the most work. The master closet is a train wreck so that’s what I’m focusing on first. Mr. AWSL keeps saying “that’s fine, why do we need to change it?” Silly man. Does he want to hang his clothes in the garage? There’s only one rod in our closet and it’s broken. Plus there’s no place for shoes!
I’ve spent more than my fair share of time in the aisles of Lowes this week. Their Memorial Day sale is on now and we’re trying to get some things ordered before we leave on our cruise.
The house has some perfectly fine lighting that’s all coming down because I have several antique chandeliers, just waiting to be unpacked from our old house.
I’m not over the moon, excited about this house. But what I am excited to do is see my things that have been packed away for a year. That funky little statue I found at a flea market. The confit pots I’ve collected over the years. The things I’ve inherited from my mom and dad. The “jewelry” of my house.
I look a bit more bedraggled by the time we got to Home Depot. It was our last stop of the day before racing to our grandson’s last baseball game of the season.
I promised to share my wardrobe for the cruise, and I will. Right now, everything lightweight is being replaced with sturdy things for rain and cool temps because the weather forecast isn’t what I’d planned for.
Here’s what’s on my rolling the rack now. Yes, it’s a sea of black, white and leopard. This kind of packing makes mixing and matching a snap which means I can cram it all into that tiny carry-on. More to come on this later.
BTW- I’m sure you know the Nordstrom half-yearly sale is on and have been inundated with blog posts about it. I’ll just share what I bought on tomorrow’s Would You Wear It post.
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day.
