When Husband Is Away...

...the wife will eat a lot of carbohydrates and spontaneously decide to do a mini-makeover on the master bedroom.


Once a year, Grant goes to a golf tournament for a whole weekend in Lake Charles. He plays golf for a few days, hangs out with some dudes, and I'm left here to get into trouble. Let's just say that this weekend I ate a LOT of pasta. I visited with lots of friends. And I also accidentally redecorated the master bedroom.

Okay, okay, okay, I didn't do a full makeover. The furniture is still the same. And the curtains are the same too, though I want to change those. But I did get new bedding, new sheets, and new lamps. 

I love these lamps!

Here's the problem... they don't really go with my furniture. My furniture, is big, heavy, formal dark wood. These are light and modern. But I decided to buy lamps that will go with the bedroom I want to have eventually rather than the bedroom I have right now :) 

I watched the movie "We Bought a Zoo" this weekend and I LOVE THAT MOVIE. 

Also, I spent some time over at Elizabeth's on Saturday so I could love on baby Avenleigh. There is not many feelings that are better than holding a sweet, sleeping newborn baby on your chest. 

I'm looking rough in that picture... but look at that sweet girl! Not gonna lie, she was making me ache for my little one. 

My husband is home now... Praise the Lord... and I'm so very glad. It's just better when he is here. He liked the bedroom and didn't get mad :) 

Plus, he made me some breakfast this morning and I love that about him. 


  1. I'm going to need some more pictures of the room redo, please ma'am. Can't wait to see the first pictures of you and your precious little one!

  2. Jen, I just got that exact same lamp for our house! :)
