Rando Post

Jan 11, 2012

Not a whole lot going on around here...Just here being pregnant and uncomfortable. ha! I've been racking my brain for post ideas but really all that's been going lately is getting ready for baby girl's arrival (seriously just 7 weeks away!) and trying to fix up our new casa as much as possible since we know we won't have the time for a while after she gets here...

Poor Ronnie spent so much time painting our house last week only to discover that the paint color looks pretty freaking different than we were expecting. The color is called "Sandstone Cliff" which to us looked very much like a beigey gray on the swatch and even on the test patch we tried out. But when the walls were fully painted, it looks more just like a light gray during the day and powder blue at night! UGH. So not the look we were going for. But here's a pic of it during the day. Not that horrible, right? But let me tell you, it's awful at night. I'll have to get a picture. One wall in the living room even looks sage green because of the lighting!

My photo shoot interrupted poor Sibley's nap. ha!
Needless to say, we're trying to let it grow on us and see how we can redecorate a little around that color... It sounds like too much work to me to buy new things and redecorate but Ronnie thinks it's way too much work to redo all the paint! Stop being so lazy and just do it, right?! ha! j/k But as much as I just want him to repaint, I know that's not a good option. Especially spending all that money again for paint. Oy vey.

Also on my mind lately? Shopping. (When is that not on my mind? :) I've been scouring through winter clearance sales on baby websites so I can load baby girl up for her first winter. It's my favorite time of year so I'm excited for later this year when I can get her all done up in cardigans, dresses and tights. Ronnie's sis from Dallas sent down a Christmas gift for V too.. Check it:
 

Ridiculous, right? :) They should fit her in time for winter too!

And last rando bit...I would LOVE a blog makeover! My design by Meg O. is amazing and I love it but I get so ancy and just want something fresh for the new year. She's booked for a while I think so if anyone knows of a designer who is awesome and pretty affordable, let me know! :)

Happy Wednesday!

That bugs me so bad about paint swatches. We had the same issue with our bedroom and were too lazy to repaint. It finally grew on us after a little while. I think the color does look nice during the day. Hopefully you grow to like it :)

Those little leopard shoes are so adorable! You're going to have one sassy little baby girl.

I've got my fingers crossed for you with the new opportunity for work!

I had a similar experience. We bought a gray beige color. We even tried a sample. It ended up
Being a warm tan color. I do not like it but we are just living with it. :)

I can't believe she's almost here!

I hope good changes are ahead of you on the work front. :)

Monica said...

OOoh that paint color situation sucks, maybe you can find a way to do something to it to change it up?

Meg O. said...

Yikes!! Sorry about the paint situation. But at least baby girl has some pretty awesome shoes!!!

I will put you first on the list for a re-design once I've filled these orders! Is that cool? I'm not sure how long it'll take but if you're willing to wait then I'd be happy to help you!

Courtney said...
