Yknow what I realized this weekend? I'm married. MARRIED! for months I've been living in this bubble that it doesn't feel all that different. And then this past weekend it all hit me. While it was 60's and sunny and a day I'd normally want to spend bbqing with friends and enjoying a cocktail was spent painting the trim on the first floor, and putting together patio furniture. And guess what?! I couldn't be happier. It's quite funny how your priorities shift so much, and things you never thought you'd enjoy make you happier than ever. :)

love you babe <3

And here are some before and after pictures...

Bedroom Updates

I figured I'd start off the week with a couple of pictures of the bedroom (before and after). We still aren't 100% there yet, but making huge progress. *please note, the before pics are from the previous owner*



Our next renovation is to get rid of the "mirrored" closet doors and replace with white wood doors. CANNOT WAIT!!! and painting the trim (still white, but it's a little grungy).

In case you are wondering, the color is from Restoration Hardware. LOVE LOVE LOVE their paint!

My name is Jess, and I'm a procrastinator.

I admit it. I am a procrastinator.

Procrastination refers to the counterproductive deferment of actions or tasks to a later time. Psychologists often cite such behavior as a mechanism for coping with the anxiety associated with starting or completing any task or decision.[1] There are three criteria for a behavior to be classified as procrastination: it must be counterproductive, needless, and delaying.[2] (Wikipedia)

If you gave me a deadline of 6 months from now, I probably wouldn't start until right before the 6 months was up. I can make deadlines, but I think I secretly like the stress of racing to finish things and the pressure. But, no one should have told me I had a year to finish my wedding invites. It's not that I'm ungrateful. It's not that I'm trying to be rude. I just think I find excuses of other things to do and the thought of having to write out SO many makes me ill. I want to take the time to be considerate and thank everyone for their gifts since everyone was SO generous and thoughtful.

So before Jarrett officially killed me (because yes, he is NOT a procrastinator) I finally went and got my thank you's and the proof has arrived for me to share. Ironically, I ended up picking from the same company as my wedding invitations.
In honor...
