On this week’s edition of Sunday Lately 2019: Week 1 is all about obsessing, perusing, and praising. Let’s share, shall we?
First, some housekeeping. From Wild & Wanderful:
Sunday Lately is a weekly linkup hosted by the Blogger Tribe! We e-hangout every Sunday, sharing a small glimpse into the past week of life in our own worlds. We’d love if you could join us! Simply link up below with your blog post! Not able to make it to your blog this week? Not to worry, you can link up your #BTSundayLately Instagram posts too!
Obsessing: over finding the perfect bud vase. I had a cute, simple white vase with a fake orange daisy in it that broke in the move. Actually, I knocked it off the table with my big butt. I was trying to maneuver around the mass of boxes in my studio/office and boom! It broke my heart a little, even if it was fake. I bought it back when I had a horrible job and needed something cheery in my office.
This is the currently barely organized chaos…
Perusing: all the online furniture and rug catalogs I can find. We moved from a semi-carpeted condo into one with nothing but hardwood. The floors are SO COLD. We desperately need a rug under the bed and in the living room. But first, we also need a new couch. The walls aren’t square in there but at weird obtuse angles. The main long wall is 12 feet long, and our old furniture set just doesn’t look right. It looks dwarfed by the room. When we got word the condo was ours, we promised ourselves a huge 3-sided sectional. But finding the right one has been a PITA.
Mid-century modern furniture is all the rage and I HATE IT. My fantasy couch is gigantic without those terrible the tapered wood legs (or worse, hairpin ones—UGH!!). But I wouldn’t mind this one, if I had a fancy house.
Praising: professional movers. The guys we hired are TOP NOTCH. We used them when we moved in together and they combined two homes into one in less than four hours. It was amazing. This time it took them just over four and a half with only three guys! Still worth every penny! Had we relied on the kindness of non-professionals, I can bet cash-money that at 12:30 pm on Saturday we would have still been loading up the truck…and probably broken a heck of a lot more than my little bud vase.
Instead, we moved on to trying to find my husband’s clothes since he threw them in random boxes, but that’s a story for another time!
Hope you enjoyed this Sunday Lately. What are you doing today, or how did you spend your weekend? Can you believe we’ve made it through the first week of 2019? Share down below!
