Vacation is getting old...but we have cable!!

  If your one of those fantastic mothers who believes in no TV during the week, or you don't watch it yourself, hats off to you! Your a better person than I am, cause I freaking love TV. Especially my housewives shows (or smut as Jake calls it). I had the best time tonight eating my leftovers, while Jake was at the gym, and catching up on the OC. What does that have to do with anything? Well I will tell you. Its getting boring around these parts. I am so hopeful for this job (my interview is Friday woo hoo!) because all this tanning, crafting, and swimming in the lake sure is getting old. (HAH! keep the eye rolls to yourself.) But really, we've been here almost 2 weeks, and while its totally awesome not having to wake up earlier than 9 am every day, I am getting bored. My house couldn't get any cleaner, and I am running out of things to spray paint! Like these lovely sconces:

not a terrible color, but we're in to more "cools" around our house so they just didn't fit

ahhhh, I sure do love Krylon ocean breeze. 
 P.s. how awesome is that portrait? Thats ME! My Aunt actually made it for me a few years ago, and its taken a nice place in our home ever since.

  Tonight i'm planning a delicious pinterest inspired treat to go along with mine and Jakes movie night:

This is not my photo, I can't find the source of it though!

um hello delicious. Its caramel marshmallow popcorn. YUM. Calories you ask? Don't worry about it! Its so dang hot around here lately, i'll probably sweat it all off in no time!

  So to sum this post up, I don't have a whole lot of new fun stuff to share with you. I need to begin photographing and editing some pictures of my slowly-being-completed home and get them to you very soon! Maybe tomorrow I can try to fit it in, between my oh so busy schedule of laying by the lake, and hot-gluing flower arrangements. ;)

  1. That treat looks delicious! Good luck with the job and finding things to do. :)

  2. I really do love those sconces! Such a pretty color. I wish I had that problem of my house not being able to get any cleaner. Ha! Hope the job search went well. :)
