yes, i am a yoga instructor and i practice peace and try to live by it but by god i am also a human - and a taurus (bull) at that! i am stubborn and impatient and want things done right and right now. i'm terrible!
anyhoo, we've been taking loads of stuff in our cars over the past week and a half and are finally sleeping at the new place - hooray! i can already tell we are going to LOVE IT! it just feels better. i promise that soon i will do a big reveal but for now we'll start from the beginning and see how it goes from here:
totally unflattering photo of me squinting into the sun sans makeup on one of my many trips to home depot for paint
carlos, the paint guy, knows me by name and surely hates the sight of me by now
the brick color covering the living room & dining room that simply had to GO
this is a more accurate depiction of the color - i need excitement, not blandness in my home
here is the bathroom before i began painting it "mai thai" red by ralph lauren
lois made the trip too!
so i have this really bad habit of choosing paint colors because of their name... always gets me into trouble. well, the dining room is now our lounge/record room/office and the paint color has no name because the original one i chose was called "kumquat" (ha! cracks me up!) but it was too yellow-y so i took it back to carlos at home depot and tried to deepen it to my new color choice of "aurora orange" (in memory of our friend aurora) but the formulas weren't compatible so now i have a totally excellent but no-name orange in there. i think i'll call it "miranda orange" though... it's a long story and has to do with SATC and my best friend.
then i chose a lovely lavender for the living room but i can't remember the name now... only that i changed my mind and ended up with "dutchess satin" by ralph lauren largely because i can't wait to see the dutchess when it comes out oct.10th! it's going to be so visually decadent and grand!
finally, as mentioned above, i chose an awesome true red called "mai thai" for the bath because man, mai thais are good! and really, i want to have one in the bath with me tonight :)
ok enough boring stories... i'm beginning to sound like the bit on the soup called "cool story jeopardy contestant... that's bad.
in-progess shots coming soon! i'm off to the beach for the weekend for my bestie's bachellorette party - whooo-hoo!
glad to be back though - i've missed you guys SO MUCH! xoxox!
