feng shui?

so we finally have the internet... and i was so excited about it. sean was like "now you can update the blog all you want!" which is so true. but i don't even know what to write about. i think this break gave me bloggers block. i am not sure how to cure it....

we are enjoying the new house! sean is scared to put holes in the walls so we haven't done much decorating. he also doesn't want to paint any walls at all. so yeah. we are real exciting people, let me tell ya. lots of people have asked for pictures, but it just looks the pictures with the empty rooms, except there is furniture in them. i just ordered a new duvet cover for our bedroom, so maybe once we get that and make the room look more put together, i will post some pictures. we bought a new bedroom set right before we decided to buy the house, so you will get to see that too. right now our bedding is black and white. and we have dark brown furniture. it doesn't look terrible, but i am pretty sure that a designer on HGTV would tell me that it's not feng shui or something and i really don't even know what that means but if you could pretend that i do, that would be great.

i have never been really good at decorating, but i have some ideas for the bedroom, so i hope i can manage to pull it off. and i must say that overstock.com? pretty awesome. i found  our duvet cover with 2 pillow shams for $37. yep. and shipping is only 2.95 for all orders. even if you have 100 items! i only know that cuz i saw the commercial last night and thought that was pretty sweet. i was tempted to order over 100 items because it would be like i was saving a million dollars but sean thought that was stupid. to each his own i guess. here is a picture of the bedding i got. its the mocha color. the reviews on it were really good, and i want to accent it with some light blue or grey colors. not really sure if that will look good but i have this plan in my head and i hope it works out.


we bought our very first refrigerator. that was exciting. used almost my whole paycheck for it. it really makes you feel like a grownup when you have to spend your extra cash on appliances. i would have way rather bought a bunch of candy, clothes, and a puppy friend for moses but apparently a refrigerator is a more realistic. i hate being a grown up. although i do love the fridge. it has an icemaker dispenser thingy in it. and the ice cubes are so beautiful. i mean it. they are. they are shaped to fit into water bottles. so clever. and we even give mosey ice water now and he loves it. he is pretty spoiled if you ask me. the other night he jumped up on the counter and grabbed a towel. and i chased him around the dining table over 30 times. i am not exaggerating. and what did sean do? he just stood there and laughed. thanks for the help. how come mosey obeys sean but not me?

we don't have a yard right now. all it is is dirt and rocks and weeds, so it's been pretty rough for mosey. and by mosey i mean us because mosey loves dirt, rocks, and weeds more than anything. but when a dog pees in grass? you can't really see where all the pee is going and it doesn't look like they are peeing on themselves. i am sure they are but i just prefer to live in denial. well let me tell you, when it is on dirt? all four of their paws are covered in urine by the time they are done. and then they make sure that they step in it right after. it's super fun. and whats even more fun is when they jump on you right after that when you have a white shirt on and you know what is even more fun than that is when you come home from work and mosey has managed to get himself wet, *crossing my fingers it was from his water bowl, which is pink by the way(sean picked it out) and hooked on to his dog run* and then rolls around in the dirt. which then turns into mud. its so much fun.  

we are hoping to get some grass next month. sean is closing quite a few deals at work this month, so we should be able to finish our yard. or at least part of it. oh and if you guys need a mortgage loan officer? sean is your man! interest rates are really good right now... like as in historically low. so if you need to refinance? think about it. just sayin... anyway, i hope everyone is doing well! i have hardly had time to comment on anyones blogs, so please forgive me. work is going to be even crazier than last month, so hopefully i will still be able to find the time to update more regularly. hope you all have a great day!

oh chloe. have i told you lately that i love you? loved your email by the way. i can see how sean feels, i want a house so bad that by the time we get one... i might be a little afraid to put holes in the wall too! the bedding is super cute and i think your vision sounds awesome. and totally you. i love that color combination. and wow, i wonder what it is like to buy a fridge. especially one with ice cubes that fit perfectly in water bottles. annoying that it's not that fun to spend money on but i bet you appreciate it more and.. it sounds like an awesome fridge. you seriously scored with overstock. like... way. to. go. that is my kind of shopping. i'm excited to see the bedroom set. love ya!

chloe! i've missed your blogging. And your comment on my blog was so sweet. : ) You haven't been a bad blogger friend, just a BUSY one, and with good reason, girl! Very understandable. : )
So excited for you and your new house. I love the bedding and I think grey and light blue accents would be totally beautiful. DO IT.
: )

i sort of get blogger's block when i take a break, too. it's annoying!

also, i can totally understand living in an empty house. we've been here for almost three years, and we're just now getting around to hanging things on the walls! we had to do a lot of fixing up when we bought the house (and that included doing a lot of new drywall), so my husband feels like he doesn't want any holes in the walls, but i keep telling him we look like weirdos with a bare house!

Yay you're back! :) I'd love to move to Utah - so Sean can definitely get me a house! :)

Ashley said...

So glad you're back! I've missed your blogging!

The colors for your room sound amazing! I can't wait to see the pictures of how you decorated your new house!

By the way, my dog doesn't listen to me either, only my boyfriend. It must be a guy thing!

I really like that bedding. I'll have to check out overstock sometimes, that's so cheap for a duvet. I asked for our duvet for my birthday like 4 months before our wedding because it was expensive and I didn't want to spend that money..ha, I'm lame. Umm yeah, thanks for letting me know that and I won't buy a house without a yard unless I don't have a dog. I'd like to stay in denial too. maybe it doesn't run so much in the grass? Maybe? And if we ever decide to buy and house, maybe we'll use you guys!

I like that bedding! I hope it works out once it arrives! I bought a lawn mower at the beginning of the summer and I felt the same way about being an adult.
