This past weekend, my two best friends from high school were in town. I have known them forever and although we don’t see each other often, whenever we are together, it’s just like I saw them yesterday. Those friendships are the best, don’t ya think? I was so sad to see them go on Sunday, but they were also a huge help to me with outfits photos while Aaron worked all weekend, I love ya ladies!

On another note, Aaron and I stayed up late painting our new bedroom and master bath last night. Lots of rooms down, three to go! He asked me last night if we should have hired a painter for the rooms like we did for other areas of the house. It made me think: we are saving money, but we’re not saving time that’s for sure. But, with the windows open and the tunes on the radio turned up, it also makes me realize that later in life when we probably will have the money to hire help for painting, it will be these nights just the two of us that we remember, saying “remember when we bought our first house and we were broke and it was a labor of love?” Somehow I feel like these will be fond memories one day. One day. 

p.s. I am in love with this GAP dress that on major sale right now. Dress up or down and SO comfy!
Have a great day and thanks for reading! xoxox

  1. cute outfit, love your jewelry!!
    when we did renovation at my parents house, we all painted the house together and yes one day you'll look back on these days and think that was so fun!

  2. This reminds me of when I was a kid and we bought a house, and it became a family affair to scrape off the wallpaper in the whole house and get it all painted. That was a fond memory that I have with my dad when he was teaching me how to paint, so I bet you will look back on those memories fondly! P.S., you look really cute! I have those shoes, too - it's amazing how comfortable they are!

  7. Congrats on the house Amy! My hubby and I just bought a house as well, so I totally understand where you are coming from. It's all about saving money where you an and enjoying the process. :)

  8. This look is perfect! Loving those wedges!

  9. I love how the denim really accentuates the pink in the dress. Painting is tough work – definitely slow going. At least you're saving money while enjoying it though!

  12. Painting is easy! My Step Dad did it professionally his whole life, so I guess I'm just trained but for real, buy rollers. With extender arms. Your back will thank you. Or just get a paint sprayer, I bet you can rent one from Home Depot!
    You are right though. You'll remember the two of you painting your home forever. It's worth it to make the memories!
