Wow. its been a while..again.

It seems as though every other post for the last few months has started similarly..  What can I say? Life is busy? eh.. I suppose. I've been lazy? probably more so.  I think really its just been a long stretch of bloggers block. nothing exciting to share..nothing interesting to say.   But  blogging is such good therapy!  Maybe I will try harder.

This week has been absolutely beautiful- finally out of the 100's - the windows are wide open on this lovely Sunday morning, and the curtains are blowing in the breeze. Perfection.   It feels like fall- finally..fall. 

I am probably jumping the gun a bit, considering next week will be in the lower 90's. I don't care. My pumpkin spice and apple cider candles are out, I've switched out a few of  my more summer-esque decor with a bit of burnt orange and dark greens..and I"m contemplating putting away the shorts and tank tops.  I should probably wait..

We did a bit of painting this weekend..and I must say I am happy with the results.  Quite a while ago, I blogged about the two ugly end tables we purchased at of that nature- and what in the world could we do with them! well ...earlier this year we did something. we bought a lovely yellow paint with every intention of painting those suckers.   ...5 or 6 months later I am happy ( and a bit embarrassed) to say that we finally got around to that! the weather was right, the wind wasn't too strong, and we  needed to be productive!

Here are a few pics- they look super blurry for some reason..not enough light i guess..?

1st end table by the door with our super awesome vintage lamp (one of my favorite antique store finds!)

Here is the other end table- just a closeup.   Yes. that is a Star Wars record in the background... " The story of Star Wars" to be of my husbands prized possessions..

I think I am pretty darn happy with the way the color came out.  that doesn't meant it will stay that color forever ;)

on my next post ( you know, in a few months..) I will FINALLY post pictures of our anniversary trip to colorado! yeah. that was in june ;)

here is a preview:
