Giveaway Winner and Some Catch-ups

First things first...
The winner of the Tiny Prints Giveaway is Betsy! Congratulations!
Betsy, I sent you an email. Just send me one back (within the next 24 hours) and let me know the info is right and I'll send it along. A new winner will be selected after 24 hours.  (Sorry to be a pain, but you wouldn't believe how many people enter and then bail and you can't get ahold of them!)
I FINALLY got a relatively good night's sleep last night. I woke up twice. Once to go to the bathroom and another time apparently just for fun. BUT, I fell right back asleep both times. Rather than staying up forever. I purchased a $20 body pillow from Target and it seems to be doing the trick. It is so cozy. I mean, the thing is huge, but it is cozy.
Renovations on the upstairs are coming along. The bedrooms are almost done so I'm going to do a whole before and after thing with them when they are. Then I'll show the bathroom when it is done. And then the nursery and our bedroom once everything is all moved in.
Big A and I had to pick out a medicine cabinet, a light fixture, and a programmable thermostat last night. The electrician is coming today and needed to know where he needed to move the plugs and such to. (There's a wiring issue that needs to be fixed so we are just having him move the plugs while he's there. Otherwise Pa Dukes would be doing it). I thought it was going to be difficult, but we were in and out of Home Depot in 20 minutes. We didn't get the most perfect things ever, but we got what we good and with a little elbow grease, they should be lovely. (We bought a super cheap medicine cabinet in white, rather than a more expensive one in black that was triple the price. I'm going to paint it with the same paint I'm using for the vanity and then it will definitely match. And for $40, I don't mind painting stuff!)
I can't wait for everything to be done! I'm turning our current bedroom into an office/storage/my space room. I'm looking forward to being able to spread out a little more. There's an entire floor of the house that we haven't used, so this will be like having a whole new place.
We have a busy weekend coming up and I'm not sure how I'm going to survive it. I see a long day on Sunday of me sitting on the couch watching Lifetime movies. Haha. We have a friend's birthday party Friday night and then an annual Thanksgiving party that we go to every year on Saturday. Plus, all the thousands of things my mom and I fit into Saturdays. I'm going to be one tired lady. Hopefully, I can drag Big A home not too late and then I won't have to turn into a giant mess!
Other than that, the week is winding down nicely. I have a lovely eyebrow threading appointment this evening that has promised to blow my mind. And then there's one more day between me and my wonderful lover... the weekend.
I hope everyone has a fabulous Thursday!


  1. I have no sympathy for you because I'm being forced to watch a shitty town production of a play that Carl's friend's wife is in on Saturday night. I'm bringing a bottle of poison in case it gets that unbearable.

  2. First, Britt's comment above, hilarious! Second, I am pretty sad that I didn't win. Now I have to buy my Christmas cards at full price. Damn! Haha! Oh well! I have a coupon that I can use to lessen the blow I guess, ha!

    I am so excited to see what everything looks like finished. I wish I had as big of a house as yours. Unfortunately that won't happen for a few more years. And I hope you have a great time this weekend! It does sound busy, but also sounds like a ton of fun!

  3. Glad the upstairs is coming along! Have you ever had your eyebrows threaded?
