First of all, I am absolutely, completely, and utterly enamored with my new job. Working for the American Cancer Society and doing my part to make a difference in the fight against cancer - how can life get better than that? It has absolutely been an adjustment, but I wouldn't have it any other way. My first big event happened last week and I was very pleased with how it turned out (blog post coming soon) and it made me fall in love with what I do even more! I can't believe that my BIG event is less than two months away! Good gracious, I have some SERIOUS work to do!
Speaking of having tons of work to do, there's some big news in the world of Wally and Jules! G and I bought a house! Not only did we buy a house, we bought a 1960's-hasn't been updated in 50 years-covered all over in wallpaper-olive green and gold adorned house. It may be dated (and that's an understatement) but there is so much potential!
|The outside is pretty cute as is...there are a few updates that are needed (and some serious landscaping) but overall, not too much to do here.|
|Wowza! Those are some AWESOME 60's style wrought iron room dividers! And see all that glorious wallpaper? Nice.|
|The kitchen, complete with the original wall oven from 1968! Still works! Appliance updating, cabinet painting, new flooring, and new hardware will be starting soon!|
|This room might be my favorite in terms of wallpaper. So. Much. Green.|
It's a work in progress, but I can't wait to show you all the after pictures. If it turns out even close to how I'm imagining it in my head, it's going to be a great end result!
