The hubs and I recently had ourselves a little staycation. And as I’ve said a million times before, spring is the only season I’ll openly advocate for everyone to move here. We thought we might head to Austin or even catch a last minute travel deal to Vegas, but why go somewhere else when it is the perfect time to hang out in the 4th largest city in the country. Believe me, come August, I’ll be begging for strangers to take me in!
During this week of heavenly respite, we made a pact to treat our town as if we were seeing it with fresh eyes and go to places we wouldn’t normally go (i.e. Try New Restaurants Lazy!) And eat we did! We also visited the zoo, went shopping, drove down streets we don’t normally take, grilled outside, watched foreign films… treated it like it was all new… from the comfort of our own home. And there will be updates coming of our fun Houston adventures. But we also took advantage of the free time to clean and organize our home. (Don’t worry it’s a disaster again already.) The hubs worked on a new (and amazing!) furniture project and I assessed our art situation and tried to remedy it myself (not happening any time soon!). So although we are about to install a new major piece of furniture, I figured I’m always going to “soon get another piece of furniture”… thus, just take the picture already! So here’s a little snapshot of the new arrangement. But to see the full story, go here or click on Apartment Living up top there.
Over on that other page, I’ve included links to my DIY hanging pendant, our handmade coffee table, an ikea hack, and a few other things!
