How has your week been?? This week has been SO busy over here! I got off the plane from Seattle and stepped right back into more. More life, more work and more projects.
I get asked all the time, “don’t you ever get tired?”.
Answer? Yes! But I know what I want and I know that the only way I am going to get what I want is to dive in and JUST DO IT!
Plus I love to take advantage of these summer months to get stuff done. I know that once October hits I will want to be doing all the cozy things – lighting candles, baking cookies, curling up by the fire with a book as he days begin to get shorter. I will want to be getting ready for the holidays and the chaos of large DIY will need to be put on hold until after the new year.
So I dive in!

I bet you were wondering why some random guy is in my photo. That is Mario. If you have been following along @aprilcolleen then you know that this week we had our garage finished.
Bare studs and all. You heard me. We had it finished by someone else.
Everyone is so surprised that I am not doing it myself. Are you??
Truth? Our ceilings are over 12′ tall in there and I really didn’t want to do it.
There. I said it.
I would probably still be hanging drywall and the crew got the whole thing completed in 5 days from beginning to end! So I left this one to the pros. For me, it was totally worth paying them to do.
However, I am painting it today myself!
They left all the paper covering on the floor (we have a nice epoxy floor) and left the scaffolding for me to paint the ceiling and will come back to clean everything up next week! Then I can organize all the things and I can’t wait!
So join me over on the ‘gram to follow along. I got an 18″ roller instead of the standard 9″. How long do you think it will take? Think it will go twice as fast since it is twice as big? I am planning to paint it ALL and get it done in one day.
Think I can do it??
What are you reading lately? I have begun another murder mystery by Lucy Foley called ‘The Hunting Party’ and it is so good!
I got a Kindle for Mother’s Day and have been loving it! Are you team Kindle or team actual book? We have a beautiful library in our home, so I am torn. I love adding to my collection, but I also like the ease of the Kindle. I can read in bed and not disturb my hubby who needs his sleep. I also got this adorable pop socket for the back to make it easier to hold on to. Isn’t it cute?
Here is what I have read lately:
I have been working on projects for work @shopvitality and building things for our big Pop Up Shop in September in Denver. It is SO exciting and can’t wait to see it all come together! So, YES, I have been so busy but it is so fun!
I hope you have the best day today and accomplish what you set out to do. Even if it is just reading one of those books on my list and relaxing by the pool.
