This blog is mostly professional, so I tend to stay close to the topic at hand- literacy. I have a personal blog, but it's been neglected for the past several months. I decided to stray a little from this blog's topic and share tidbits about life once and a while (just for fun). I'm happy to link up with my friend over at An Irregular Silsbee.
Fa La La La La La La La La:
Even though it may be cliche, I love Christmas! This weekend I sprayed painted our cards all pretty. I made 2 different stencils (Joy, Paz) and went to it. I like the way they turned out....however DIY feels a little more expensive than cheapo photo cards. However- it's an excuse to create! I banged these out yesterday while my little one napped. We also got a tiny table-top tree today. It's perfect! My heart melted when my just-turned-2-year-old said, "It's pretty." I think my hubby will kill me soon with my Christmas fever, especially the xmas music streaming from Pandora non-stop. I'm just having so much fun!
We tried to sell our very cute and VERY small house last year, and the market was a bust!! So after packing up our entire house, staging things all pretty, moving to my mom's for a while-- it didn't sell. After regrouping, we decided to redo our kitchen a la IKEA. This update will make living in a less than 900 square foot house doable. We are both teachers, and we're able to order our *new* kitchen at IKEA last week over our thanksgiving break. I'm excited for the details: farmhouse sink, raven counter tops, and new appliances all around!! It was also pretty sweet that IKEA was having a 20% off sale.
I hope you all have a great week! We have 3 weeks left of school until our winter break (3 weeks long!).
