Happy Monday! I wish I could say I am well rested after my long weekend but I am fighting some serious allergies or cold. It hit me hard Friday night and I haven’t shaken it yet. I didn’t let it stop me completely though I did take more naps than planned. I would never turn down a nap though. So what was I up to??
I stopped at Whole Foods after my hike, and this was what I came out of the store to, seriously sometimes Whole Foods is worst than Wal-Mart.
One of the places I stopped was Lowe’s for some wood for a new project. Dinner was a salad with some taco seasoned beef. So yum!
Friday morning I started a new book, while drinking my morning java.
Friday afternoon I met up with Maddie from The Whimsy One since she was in town visiting family. We went to Patriots Place and had lunch at Red Robin and followed it up with a cupcake. Of course we had to take a photo in front of the stadium sign.
I was starting to feel sick on Friday morning but by the night it got really bad. I think the melting snow just really brought out an allergy/cold. I ended up falling asleep for a few hours and then waking up and going to bed.
Saturday I wanted to get the desk built and stained so I could get it installed on Sunday, in between building and staining I was reading or napping.
My office has been re-done twice now. It never seems to work since it is a hodge podge of so many hobbies and many supplies from so many different places. I wanted something a little bit more coordinated and thought out and I really wanted to declutter and organize. I still have some art to put up and a leg to build, but it’s coming along.
I can’t tell you enough how much I love my little munchkin Seamus, he really puts up with me dressing him up and doesn’t complain. Such a doll face, love him!
How was your weekend?
Linking up with Biana from B Loved Boston.
Biana @ Blovedboston says
Ahhh sorry to hear that your allergies are bothering you – at least I hope that’s what it is and not a cold!! Aside from that looks like a great weekend! I watched Wild on the plane back yesterday and with the hiking it of course reminded me of you!!! I loved your wood office project – you’ll have to do a step by step DIY for us!!! Happy Monday! xo, Biana
I am hoping so, though my cough is getting worse. 🙁 Did you like it? I liked it a little better than the book since it moved faster. You know I will be putting a project post together soon. 🙂 Happy Monday!
you and me both the with cold/allergies thing. it’s awful! it’s pure yellow out here. i hope you get better asap. glad you got some naps in
It is horrible. Hope you are getting better too. Naps would make the world a better place! Hehe!
Oh no! I hope you feel better soon! Allergies are for real out in full force! Also? That car? ALL THE RAGE!
It is brutal this time of year, my whole office is sick. I couldn’t believe it, but I could too. So much rage!
Linda Sheridan says
Healing lights to you. That desk looks awesome. Brava for tackling all of these “construction” projects.
Have an easy, happy week!
Love SMD’s Momma
Thank you. I figure as long as I don’t lose a finger it’s worth giving it a try! 😉 This one happen to work out. Have a great week!
Bri @ My Life As says
I hope that you’re feeling better! Allergies are the worst.
Thank you. I’ll get there soon, today is not the day though. 🙁
ugh so sorry you’ve been feeling so crappy! my allergies have been pretty sucky but not that bad (they will be, soon.. i’m sure!). your desk looks absolutely amazing, seriously well done!! and yes totally agree, i never go to whole foods because the parking lot is always a mess!
It is horrible so much junk from the Winter in the air. Thank you. I am so excited with how it came out, and feels so much more grown up. Ha!
Sarah Emily says
Oh my goodness! Seamus is so cute! Our whole foods has a two story parking deck but, it is very dark at all times of the day, very narrow and I totally agree-worse than walmart! There are always accidents in there or people hitting the huge cement pillars! awful! I hope you have a great week lady!
Thank you. He really does put up with me dressing up so he deserves a medal. Oh many two stories and they still can’t park right! Oh boy! Hope you have a great week!
chelsea jacobs says
Allergies are THE WORST! I hope you get to feeling better soon!
Worst part about Spring for sure! Thank you.
Tori@Cupcakes & Crossbones says
The desk came out great! You really do so well with projects like that…they always end up looking amazing! Seamus looks so festive with his bunny glasses on!
Thank you. I have my hiccups but I love at least trying them. I need to make a leg but overall really happy with it. He is such a good sport! 🙂
My allergies were bothering all weekend too, I feel your pain. It’s the worse part of spring. Love your new desk, it’s so fantastic!! Oh Seamus is too cute! Hope you are feeling better.
Yes, the weather change is always rough. Thank you, I was really happy to get it done. Now to finish cleaning up the rest. Hope you feel better too
Jana @ Jana Says says
When people park like that, it proves why I hate people.
I love that Seamus lets you dress him up. Barkley and Dobie want none of that. We won’t even discuss the cat.
Are you loving You? Creepy as anything, right?
Haha! So true! He is so mellow about it, though he gets annoyed after the tenth pictures. Haha!
I did like it, very creepy and makes you think about our world today. I read the book Normal right before it which was very similar and creepy.
Brianne Bracco says
Ugh…our allergies were terrible this weekend too! Hope you’re feeling better today and your desk turned out so great! Love the stain you chose for the wood 🙂
Thank you. It is so bad, I think the snow covered a lot of the pollen and moldy grass. 🙁 Thank you, its one of my favorite stains, I love the deeper tones.
That desk looks so good! I am so impressed by your mad skills!
Awww thanks! It wasn’t too hard, luckily. I am getting a little bolder in trying things though.
Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis says
Your office is looking great! Lol @ the parking job. Really people? I would have left a note. lol
Thank you. It may take a few weekends to finish, lots of clutter to get rid of. I know, I couldn’t believe it. I had to squeeze in from the front.
Leeann @ Join the Gossip says
Haha that pic of Seamus!
You poor thing. I hope you’re feeling beer now. Sounds miserable. But you’re such a trooper and still got so much done!!
He is such a little cutie I can’t help it. It is full blown but hopefully goes away soon. I really wanted to get the desk done since that was my big to do for vacation. I did nap a lot though.
SMD @ Life According to Steph says
I love Seamus in his Easter gear.
Great job on the desk!
He is such a good sport. Thank you. Now I need to organize the rest of it.
Amy @ The Crazy Wise Woman says
My allergies are yuck right now too! We are getting rain so hopefully it will wash the pollen away! Love your desk idea. I hate my office, you are inspiring me!
It is horrible. Hope you feel better too! The rain just melted the snow and all the moldy grass was exposed. It gives me so much more room and takes up less floor space, such a bonus.
Tricia Coniglio says
Sorry you weren’t feeling well & hope you feel better soon! You were doing some serious business with that desk!! My condo is a tad bit too small to tackle projects requiring sanding tools and table saws! I really like what you did.
Thank you. I was determined to get it done. Still lots to do though. I really only used a drill and a folding table.
Someone parked beside me like that at Food Lion yesterday, I said bad words and the tourist parked on the other side of me shook her head at me and gave me a dirty look. I realized later she was parked in the middle of two parking spots but front to back not side by side. UGH!
Ugh! What is wrong with people! Why can’t they take the time to straighten out or park in the right spots.
Allergies have been out of control here, too. My oldest son has had some crummy days lately with them.
That desk is awesome – love how big it is!!
Tis the season for them. It’s been horrible. Hope he is getting better. Thank you. I love the extra space to spread out.
Allergies are insane lately. Mine is manifesting as migraines. Ugh! Hope you’re feeling better. Have a great week.
PS—Love that dress up picture of Seamus…that face! Perfect!
Ugh, mine started as headaches and then went into my sinuses and keeps moving lower. 🙁 Hope yours gets better.
Thank you. He is just too sweet and doesn’t put up a fuss. Love that little guy.
Loving the desk! I heard on the news that the pollen has started even though it is hard to believe since there is still snow on the ground. I got the Young Living Essential Oils and I’ve been using them for allergies and so far it has been enough. If you want to order some through me let me know and I can get you the wholesale price!
It has been really bad, but hoping it gets better! Thanks!
Meghan @ Champagne & Suburbs says
My allergies are completely screwed up! I hope you’re feeling some better. I am so jealous of your lunch date with Maddie! You girls are so fun. And WHY is Seamus so cute!? What a doll! xo
It’s finally getting better, thanks! We had a blast and we talk non-stop. Hope you feel better too! Thank you, he does have such a sweet face! 🙂
Im so sorry you feel bad! I feel your pain friend.. this pollen down here is killing me! Your desk looks AWESOME!! Sooo annoying when people do stuff like that! I have a friend that says “I hope you step on a lego” when someone does something annoying.. LOL! Cuz you know that hurts! Love Seamus as always!
It is the worst, hardest part of Spring for sure! Thank you, I am so excited to get the rest of it done. Oh that is a fun phrase, I may have to adopt it, stepping on lego’s are painful.
Kay R. says
That snow really needs to get it together so your allergies could get in check. Im glad you got some rest though and hope you are all better now. You office is coming along great. Seamus really is the cutest!
It finally melted but everything under it was moldy and gross. Getting better, thanks! He really is, I love him.
omg allergies are the worst!! i can’t believe you still have snow! and Seamus is just too cute!
It has been so bad but luckily the rest of the snow melted today! Thank you, I love his face!
Lindsay T says
the office looks amazing!! And how cute is Seamus.
Thanks, still so much to do but happy with it so far. So stinking cute but I am biased. 😉
nancy @ adore to adorn says
fun round-up! Too bad you caught a cold though. Boo!!
Thank you. It was rough but I am starting to feel better. Thanks!
Kate @ Green Fashionista says
How dare you say Whole Foods is worse than Walmart! LOL That’s always so frustrating. Hope you’re feeling better *hugs*.
I think I like Trader Joe’s better, the people are nicer. Haha! Thank you, I am finally starting to feel better.
Mm, I want that cupcake.
Sorry you felt sick!
It was so good, Samoas are my favorite. Thanks!
I would never turn down a nap, either! It feels so delicious to let yourself sink into that drowsy, heavy-liddedness and curl up under the covers 🙂 Hope you’re feeling better now; I’ve had a cold that’s lingered for two weeks now. Ugh. Seamus does seem to be a happy and willing participant in the dress-up!
Seriously if I could nap everyday I would be a happy girl! Two weeks? Oh no, hope you are feeling better. He is such a good sport!
You’re so talented with furniture! Your desk looks fab.
Thank you!! I am trying to be more brave and learn to build more things.
Kimberlee @ I Have A Degree In This! says
Love your office! Hope you’re feeling better. This weather has been messing with me too. Keep having to pump myself with emergen-c to keep energy levels up
Thank you. It has been rough with the weather jumping all over and the snow uncovering all the moldy dead grass.
Allergies have been really bad for me recently. I hope whatever’s bothering you goes away soon!
Thank you. Hope you aren’t coming down with anything!
Melanie at Ribbons and Rotor Blades says
I looooooove your desk!!!!! So envious of your skills and time to do all of this!!!
Seeing snow in your pictures makes me cringe!!! Yikes! Is it almost time for spring for you?!
Thank you. It gives me so much room but takes up less space. It was in the 70’s this weekend! Finally!
