Happy Mother’s Day {Updates}

Hi everyone! I hope you’ve enjoyed your weekend, and that your mother’s day was simply fabulous.


Hi mom, love you!

I bet you think I am writing because I have a new and shiny dining room to show off…but not quite. I’ve finished about 60% of the cabinets. I know, I know. Didn’t I devise a plan to get it all knocked out by now? Well, yes. But life doesn’t always go as planned, now does it?

I can give you an itty bitty sneak peek to hold you over.

A reminder of the before:


And a sneak peek of the after:


Gorgeous, ain’t it?

All the drawers are done, so I just have to get the cabinet doors done, let them cure and then hang them. So, yeah, hopefully by July. I hate painting. Hate, hate, hate it. I did not think I could feel this strongly about painting cabinets, but I can safely say I probably won’t be doing it again anytime soon. Smile

My husband and I also attempted to install crown moulding. Yeah. That’ll be it’s own post, but let me preface it by saying that crown moulding is right next to cabinet painting on my list of “Hire people to do that shit.”

Just sayin.

I know that I should just buckle down and FINISH THE CABINETS. Right? I will. I have to.

Other than that, coming up tomorrow is going to be a review about some kick ass, low calorie mix for margaritas, mojitos AND long island iced teas. You will NOT want to miss tomorrow’s post. The stuff I am reviewing is way better than that awful Skinnygirl Margarita crap, and it’s  affordable. And you’re going to love it. LOVE IT.

What else? Oh, on Wednesday will be a weight loss update complete with some info on a knee wrap that is probably made in heaven.

There will also be some free pillows and lots of spray paint.

What Monica wants, Monica gets, so this summer will be all about making my home a bit more beautiful one rant at a time.
