Random thoughts on a rainy Saturday morning:
1. I cannot believe I am about to type these words….we are heading to Waco to try stand up paddleboarding. You know. The kind of paddleboarding where you stand up on a board and paddle. Don’t tell my family, but I’m a little nervous about the standing up part.
I may just lay on the board and paddle with my hands.
And call it a paddleboard day.
2. It was an exciting week on the blog. We solved the problem of an off-center overhead light and took one step forward and two steps back and discussed the best tips on how to pick paint colors for an entire house and I showed you all my amazing Walmart finds.
3. We are about to pull up the carpet in our bedroom next week.
Fingers crossed for what we’ll find.
4. And in SUPER exciting news—-I have a new book coming out. I can’t WAIT for you all to see it because YOU were part of it. Remember about 2 years ago when I asked you all for all the decorating questions? Well, my friend Melissa and I put 100 of the questions into a book and answered them.
But that’s not the best part. I want to invite YOU to be part of the launch team for the book. Yes. YOU. It’s going to be so much fun. If you’ve been in one of my other launch groups you know how much we laughed and talked decorating and we gave out tons of prizes.
All you have to do is scroll down for your invite at the end of the post.
