What's happening around here...

With the husband traveling for work (and evidently checking up on me when he's gone), I decided to start a little segment I'm calling What's Happening Around Here. Which is the best possible way for the husband & I to connect while he's away. That is when he's not dining with clients, shopping in San Fran (his current destination), or you know...working. In all actuality, I kid. The husband is legitimately working while he's away. I have to say that, he's reading this. And I kid again.

So without further ado, I give you the first (and likely last) installment of What's Happening Around Here. And I warn isn't pretty. But well, that's reality.

Our herbs have died. Hey, what can I say...we're not indoor plant folks. But at least we have stylish DIY planters! And the sun is actually shining!

We may not be able to keep plants alive, but I do love me some blooms! These were a lovely gift from my cousin Allie. It's ranauculous & peony season! The best time of the year. Period.

The stairs aren't finished. I had you fooled! It's a good thing we don't regularly use this staircase. Especially since I think it's the most ideal place to "hide" the paint cans.

I know, you have no clue what you're looking at here (except for our window treatment-less dining room windows...we're going on FOUR years here now...). So let me give you a closer look...

Yep, that's all sorts of lovely water damage. We're set to replace the roof in the next week (if it would ever stop raining...the reason we're getting it replaced in the first place!), and then we can focus on repairing the ceiling. The fun never ends around here!

And this is the reason no one has seen photos of the "finished" kitchen. Whether or not anyone actually sees that I still need to paint the teeny-tiny area above the cabinets, remains to be seen. So until I finish that up, I won't be officially revealing the kitchen just yet. Which will likely happen in 2013. You're welcome.

I realized I still have the easter eggs on display (the only easter decor I put out this year!). I can't bring myself to put them away just yet. I love the color these wooden beauties bring to the mantel! Don't worry...once they start competing for space with the christmas tree, I promise to put them away.

And that concludes today's What's Happening Around Here tour. You're welcome, husband. Now get back to work!

  1. I'm in the same boat with my herb garden. Apparently herbs need ridiculous amounts of sunshine and well, Buffalo, we ain't got it.
