this and that.

rather than explain in lots of words what we have been up to lately like i normally do.. i'll let the pictures and the words on them and very few other words do the talking...mostly because i am lazy after putting text on all these pictures. why do i do this to myself? especially late at night?


{candle holders were $1 each from DI. add some spray paint and there you go!}



when i say everything but the tv, i mean everything but the tv. well and the wii and stuff ;) but all furniture and decor were less than $100. lets just say that the antique store and DI have been my best friends lately.


or does it just equal boredom? i'm no artist. but it was fun.


our lovely table that i am so happy with.


he told me not to tell anyone he was wearing it around the house.
 and no, he didn't just get back from a bike ride or anything like that. just wanted to wear it. 
inside. for no reason. 


for sean's birthday we went and ate at Malawi's pizza which was sooo good. then we had a group of about 25 people go bowling. after that we had people over for cake and ice cream. it was a fantastic day!

not my most flattering picture. and yes, if you can even read my name on the scoreboard.. it was spelled incorrectly. by my own cousin. ha.


and my latest, unfinished project...


inspired by this incredible woman whose blog i am obsessed with currently.

sick of my before and afters yet? well too bad, i have been in a crafty mood lately 
and i don't see it going away anytime soon! off to bed! :)

stop it. come over and decorate my house right now. serious. it all look so so cute! it is making me want to go to di. serious. maybe i just will today. can't wait to see the finished chandelier! and i'm excited to see where you're hanging that are you made. which i LOVE by the way! fun fun pictures. i hear ya on putting words on them. such a pain! it always takes me forever. i just love this post though. it makes me excited to decorate! i think i've said that on the last 3 posts. ha. i need to find out about this antique store! anyway. enough of me being obsessive and telling you how much i love it all. have a rockin' day at work! sometimes i want to switch lives and do your job to see what it's like. is that so weird? i mean...okay. i don't know what i mean. i guess i just wonder about your job for some reason. okay. and i'm weird. the end.

Your decorations look great! I LOVE that chandelier idea! Can I come craft with you??

Congrats on your bowling score. I am lucky if I get one strike per game and hit 100 points. I'm impressed. Looks like I need to hit up Jack and Jill's in Lehi to work on my skills.

Chloe! I'm so proud of youuu! and just think.. you weren't so into decorating! you just needed time to figure out what style you wanted for your home (:

samnhal said...

That's awesome! That chandelier was only $3? So cool! Are you going to hang it above your table? or in your entry or something? I'm excited to see what you end up doing with it. Your house is coming together so beautifully, it really is. I like the style of it a lot. I'm working on a craft project tonight inspired by Lauren...well, mostly copied from her, but hopefully it turns out!
