is it really thursday? …already?? this week is creeping by a little quicker than i thought it would! we still have so much to do, not to mention another yardsale this weekend!  the house is looking pretty disheveled, but room by room we’re getting there.  it’s so hard to figure out what we should take and what we should leave, sell, and give away.

my biggest efforts are still going to finding a place to live in colorado! what i really want is some old apartment that’s been painted white 100 times with drafty windows and hardwood floors (ok, maybe not drafty windows).  i need a little character, and everything i’m finding looks straight out of the 1980’s (or ’70’s).  is that too  much to ask for?   so the search continues… (unless any of you know the perfect place for us?).

so on to today’s to do list!

- finish up yesterday’s to do list

- move onto packing up the living room

- grab some bulk dog food for the toastie

- pay a few random bills

- use my gift certificate for my favorite local boutique (yeah!)

what’s on your agenda for the day?

dulcet : paper, art, & design

dulcet : paper, art, & design

“Imagine an attic filled with books, birdcages, costume jewelry and old linens. Antique trunks overflowing with dresses, photos, maps, advertisements. The delightful decadence of clawfoot bathtubs and love letters. The simple pleasures of dusty libraries and thrift stores.”

a quote from poet and shop owner, kristy bowen of dulcet, a vintage-inspired studio offering beautiful paper goods, accessories, and vintage finds.  with nearly 20 pages full of old world nostalgia, you’ll be indulging your vintage-chicness and taking a trip down memory lane!

happy first day of fall!!

this morning definitely feels like fall, it’s crisp, dewy and cool!  it’s supposed to be a beautiful season, and i’m ready for it.  every year i wish that fall would last just a little longer (or maybe a lot!).  yesterday was productive and we had a beautiful time with our families at dinner last night.  just a couple of tears, but mainly laughs and the telling of old stories.  my back felt really good all day yesterday, (yeah!) so i’m planning on it holding in there for today as well.  here’s what’s on the agenda!

– finish packing up the sewing room (dun dun duhh)

– finalize the list of possible living places in colorado and make appointments to see them

– start going through and packing up my clothes

- gather more items for the yardsale this weekend

- finalize getting a uhaul

whew! here we gooooo!

tuesday goals

{breaking through}

well, mission moving to colorado day 1 proved pretty productive! the hub accomplished an amazing amount of work- go david! i on the other hand had a case of the girls and terrible back ache so wasn’t doing much of the heavy lifting. sifting through papers, folding laundry, packing the books and being the general organizer was more my job. i’m feeling better already today so i should be able to do a little more lifting!  our house is pretty much totally disheveled, so i only wish you could see where i’m sitting right now.  piles everywhere!

tuesday goals:

finish packing up the guest room and office

make dinner reservations to go out with our families tonight

get started (and maybe finish?) packing up the sewing room

make toaster a grooming appointment (poor beeeebie)

be more careful with my back

– attempt to clean as i’m packing so the house remains sane!

i can’t even tell you how many blessings we’ve had throughout this entire process.  we even got news yesterday that our dear friends bekah and zach are going to be renting our house!  what a huge relief. through prayer, patience and trust, God has been an amazing provider throughout each and every detail.  things have come together that we couldn’t even foresee needed to in order for this move to take place!  i can even see how certain things that happened a year ago were completely necessary for this to take place in our lives.  how little did we know!  we are so thankful. :) now, back to work!

fall is in the air

September 20, 2010

fall is in the air fall is in the air.. can you feel it? whether we want it to or not, it’s coming, and isphotography’s work makes me all the more ready for it.  crisp mornings and sweater evenings…  colorful leaves falling in the wind, pumpkins, apples and hot cider are just around the corner. it looks beautiful from irene suchocki’s camera lense, and it makes me eager for knitted scarves and pretty boots.

how was your weekend?

weekend

good morning lovelies! how was your weekend? mine was insane busy but beautiful. every morning was foggy with dew that spread over everything like a blanket in the grass on a warm summer day.  we were busy having a yardsale friday and saturday and it was thankfully, worth the hassle! i’m no yardsaling pro so i was exhausted from being haggled and helping people all day, but overall it was fun (and totally worth it).  those yardsalers can be ruthless!  yesterday was spent with family for brunch, a hike and then a yummy dinner.  we are trying to soak up all the quality time we can get before we move to colorado springs! today is day one (of 8) of packing up the house.

monday goals:

  • 1) pack up guest room and start on the office
  • 2) make toaster a vet appointment
  • 3) order any fabric supplies i need to take with me
  • 4) narrow down housing options for colorado springs and contact them
  • 5) start going through the clothes i want need to take and separate them

wish me luck! love, bonnie
