So What Wednesday!

Its So What Wednesday again!!! I kind of love it. I get to vent with a purpose. And once I actually get it out, I really do feel better! So here goes with my recent so whats....

**SO WHAT if the boyfriend and I didn't get many big projects on the house done this weekend. We didn't have our AC unit installed yet and it was H-O-T! Once we started working and realized we'd never cool down, we quit and took a trip to Home Depot.

**SO WHAT if I never go to Home Depot again by the way. They'll never miss my business and Lowes is a million times better. Prices are cheaper, workers are more helpful. Geez. And Lowes is just freaking BRIGHTER!!! Home Depot, to me, is the ugly step brother of Lowes.

**SO WHAT if I royally HATE the diet that I'm on. It sucks. Point blank. I want carbs.

**SO WHAT if I started this blog post this morning at like 11 and its now 3:45. I have ADD. lol

**SO WHAT if I'm starting to freak out that we only have 3 weekends between now and our housewarming party. I feel a small panic attack coming on at the thought that not one single room is totally finsihed in our house. Kill. Me. Now.

That's all for now :) Have a great day!

SO What Wednesday!

I was reading Shelli's post about So What Wednesday that she got from Shannon's blog. I love the idea. Maybe it'll help me get some stuff off my chest.

**SO WHAT if I'm in a bad mood today. I reserve the right to take a "bad mood" day and not want to deal with people in general. Bite me. I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today.

**SO WHAT if since I'm having a bad day, I needed lunch with my madre and a Shamrock Shake to make me feel a little better.

**SO WHAT if I can't bring myself to start a diet. I know I need to, I just don't want to right now. I've got too many other things to worry about. Someday the want and need will coincide with one another.... someday....

**SO WHAT if I keep saying I'm going to sew something and haven't done it yet. There's always tomorrow.

**SO WHAT if I've suddenly found myself obsessed with another book series. The Hunger Games has really gotten me hooked! Can't wait for March 23rd!

**SO WHAT if its nice outside?!?! My freaking allergies are on overload. Anybody found a way to remove the sinus cavity yet?!?!?!

**SO WHAT if you don't have anywhere you need to get to quickly. I DO! Get out of my way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

**SO WHAT if I'm not as successful, make as much money, have the perfect looks, huge house, nice car.... blah blah blah as you are. I'm twice as happy. :)

That's all for now. I'll definitely be back to gripe some more next Wednesday.

Getting back into the swing of things......

Well, I'm starting to get back into the swing of things. We were really busy with working for my dad the past weekend and now that its all over, we're focusing back on the house again! Yaay! I'm ready to finally start getting things done so that we can have a housewarming party!!! This weekend, we finished painting the kitchen, painted our front door and moved the rest of the furniture in out of the garage.
Here's the new china cabinet:

and our armoire in the spare bedroom...(I think the armoire looks like one of the dancing pieces of furniture from Beauty and the Beast... lol)

My next task is to get my sewing room in order so that I can make valances for my kitchen and bathrooms... Here's the disaster that is my sewing room so far:

and the closet...

And yes.... that is THREE tubs full of fabric that I washed...

It took me 4 loads to do all of it! Then of course, I had to cut it all apart because of the frayed edges. At one point, with the living room chair, coffee table, side table, and couch covered in fabric.... my boyfriend looked around and claimed that "he didn't know what he was getting into." lol. Oh well. I'm all finished now and ready to get things organized.

I'm first going to make the valances. Hopefully that will make the house feel more complete. Hanging these two little things did wonders... It actually feels like I'm starting to get decorated!

(p.s. don't judge my dirty pot holder.... I stuck it in the pizza by accident while I was trying to cut it this weekend. oops!)

After that, I want to get back into quilting again. I got all my pieces printed for the Farmers Wife Quilt Along and I'm going to cut out templates soon. I've cut out fabric for 4 of the blocks. They're just waiting to be sewed up! Maybe I'll get a couple done this weekend after the valances.... Wish me luck!
