Time to get cozy!

I love this season.

I get excited for jeans and scarves and sweaters and football and chili.

However, I also get a little spazzy.  Because to enjoy those things, I MUST clean out all the closets, organize everything, buy new clothes and possibly new furniture.  I tend to rearrange, clean, and rip out hundreds of pictures from magazines of what I want my cozy home to look like. It always happens this time of year.

I did do one awesome thing in my house this summer.  I made myself an office.  Here it is:

office

I already had everything I needed, I just had to put them together and paint the room pink. Actually there are two new things in the picture.  One, the chair from TJMaxx and two, the new Apple computer from heaven.  Seriously, miracles happen when you turn it on.

I’ve decided the rest of my house looks like crap and must be changed immediately.  I’m starting with this.

armoire

I don’t even know what to say.

I hate it.

But I need the storage and my room is the size of Texas so we need some heft in there.  You know what I mean? I need big pieces to balance out the cavernous space.  However, I have another armoire in there too so now it’s just like an armoire store except I don’t think anyone would buy them.

Those of you who know me can tell what’s coming next.  I’m painting it.  Damn straight.

If my husband is reading this right now, he is in a full body sweat and steam is coming out of his ears.

Remember the pink office?  Well, I kinda sorta started that with a lot of enthusiasm and then I lost steam.  I started listening to music and looking for ideas for the next project when the walls were half painted and the ceiling had pink splats on it.  So, being the kind, loving, generous and very handy husband he is…he finished it for me.  There was only a little huffing and puffing.

I promise not to get tired halfway through on this project.  I will commit to finishing.  Unless I start thinking about the family room.  We really need some new furniture in there…

On another note, I’m linking up to my friend’s blog today.  Susan is my Holy Yoga Sister and roommate from our instructor retreat.  I love her.  Also, I think her whole farm lifestyle is really cool and I’m encouraging her to build a barn for us to have yoga parties/retreats in.  Of course, we will need to hang chandeliers and paint it and have lots of cozy stuff in there.  I’ll start gathering ideas on Pinterest.  Oh wait, I’ve already done that.

Her link party has to do with music which of course I love!!  She is asking us to share music that is feeding our souls right now.  What is totally amazing but not really very surprising, is that the song she shared is by the same person who sings the song I’m sharing!  LOVE HIM! This is my favorite song that I play in Holy Yoga.  I also like to listen to it when I want to be totally inspired.

Listen here, enjoy, and check out Susan’s blog!   http://www.avintagefarmwife.blogspot.com
