You guys! I'm so sorry I left you hanging. This past week at work was insane. My job is so rewarding, but it's also completely exhausting at times. And that left me little time for cooking, cleaning, running, reading, spending time with Matt and Jack, hiking, and therefore just about everything else. But I spent the day yesterday deep cleaning the house, writing a menu for the week, and catching up on some R&R, and this morning we went for a long hike at Torrey Pines so I finally feel like I'm back into a routine with my job.
Anyway, my last post I said I would be revealing my desk and some St. Patrick's Day goodies. If you can't tell by our last name, Matt is Irish. And he's proud of it. So this year we are having everyone over for corned beef and cabbage (ugh) and green beer and naturally I needed some simple St. Patty's Day decor. So I made this simple little bunting with some burlap, jute, and green felt:
All I did was print off a shamrock , cut it out, use it as a stencil and I hot glued the shamrocks on. Then I just folded about a centimeter of fabric over the jute and used Stitch Witchery to attach the triangles.
Super easy, super cute. Do you agree?
Did you notice this awesome heart shaped succulent?
Simrin gave it to me for Valentine's Day and I think it's the sweetest!
And as far as my desk.... I finally decided on a paint color:
It's Vintage Teal from Valspar (obviously), and I think it looks much darker in real life, but that could just be my monitor.
But when I finished painting and put the hardware on (I ended up picking card catalog type label holder pulls), it didn't look anything like I was picturing in my head and I just wasn't satisfied. So I ordered some new pulls and I'm dying for them to get here so I can FINALLY reveal my desk!
And I have one more thing to share. My friend Nikki suggested making a Hootie and the Blowfish channel on Pandora. I mean I like Hootie and the Blowfish but really? Well please do yourself a favor and do the same. Lots of 90's awesomeness will be coming from your speakers and you will not be sorry! You can thank me later :)
