11 days til move day

We move in 11 days...
Holy Cow!!

I have a whopping three boxes packed...

I have never been good at packing. When I moved from my parents house to an apartment, I just threw all my stuff in the back of a truck... no boxes or organization. Hopefully tomorrow I will find some motivation to get some serious packing done!

In the mean time I will continue to stall the packing process by showing you fabulous people some of my favorite pinterest finds of the week..

Why did I not think of this before?!

I must have this.. but it's a little pricey so we will be making it ourselves

most of what I pinned this week was geared towards the playroom. It wasn't going to be a top priority when we moved in but for some reason I'm really excited about it. I want to try and get it done so it is a fun place for E and his buddies to play while Stephan and I have friends over for dinner.... Plus I've always wanted to decorate a fun bright play room.

On a side note... I found the perfect end table today at a secondhand furniture shop
Org price: $79
Today's price: $39.50
My offer price: $20 SOLD
yes I know it is horribly ugly a little rough looking right now...
I'm sure whoever re did this piece meant well but I'm planning on taking it a different direction. More to some on that soon...

I hope to get back to blogging more this week, but I can't make any promises. Planning the move, and packing.... well planning to pack are taking up most of my time these days. Bear with me.. things will settle down here soon and I'm sure my inspiration will return!


  1. Are you packed yet? ;) I am kind of the same way. I can't work well without pressure. Newest follower from the hop!
