Heeeey there!

Long time, no chat. Sorry 'bout that. I've been a bizzy little girl over here. New job. Biggest show of the year. Potty training. Oh, and we're doing this other little thing called building a house.


I'm proud to introduce y'all to...progress!

We officially own a hole in the ground. It's terrifying.

We've hired some cheap, union labor. He's 3, wears Spiderman boots, his shovel is made of purple plastic and I'm quite sure his "tool belt" is made of felt and dollar store Velcro. But he's just so damn cute. Whatever works, right?

Since the first dig last Friday, they've added footings and what appears to be the start of basement walls, though I'm not really into all the terminology. As a disclaimer, you'll probably hear me say things like "concrete thingy" and "big machine with wheels" and "tool with a spinny thing on the end of it" quite substantially over the next few months. Trust me, I'm legit. But it really is incredible how fast it all goes up. Now, if only the rain would stay away this week...

In other news, please don't tell Joey but I continue to hoard decorative pieces in the basement. Because when you find things on clearance you can't not buy them, amirite? I'm saving us money in the long run, love. Promise. Yesterday I added a new entry rug, ottoman and...well, I don't know what to call the last thing. It's basically just a cool decoration I will prop up on a wall. It makes me smile when I look at it. Also? I'm on a first name basis with the folks at Home Goods. It is like a sport, and I lovelovelovelovelove it. Imagining our house all set up with the fireplace on and a glass of wine in my hand as we wind down the day is like thee best thing, ever. It's magical.

My latest treasures:

My secrets are safe with you, yes? Kthanksbai.
