Weekend Round Up

Hi Friends! I’m writing to you from my patio with the sun beaming down on me and it feels SO PERFECT. Like seriously. Can every day be Sunday afternoon in the June sunshine?

This is the first time I’ve sat down for more than 3 minutes all weekend! We’ve been BUSY to say the least!

On Friday, as soon as I got out of work, we headed over to our house! We picked up pizza from our favorite local pizza joint, Slice of the 80s and watched the first (of many) episode(s) of The Office in our new place! Then, we got straight to work on getting rid of all the hideous outdated wallpaper!

At 8:00 we cleaned up and headed home for the night. We both had long days and were exhausted! I sat down on the bed after I got out of the shower and the next thing I knew I was waking up to the birds chirping on Saturday morning!

We slept in a bit on Saturday and had coffee and breakfast at home before heading to the house to do some more work! We made a quick stop at Lowe’s to grab a few extra things before heading to our house.

We spent the entire afternoon in our kitchen scraping at the walls. Y’all. It was TOUGH. We were very worried that the whole house (there is A LOT of wallpaper) was going to take a lot longer to remove than we were planning.

We called it quits around 3 so we could clean up before our favorite person on the planet (our niece Emmy!) and her entourage (her parents and new baby brother!) came to visit! We showed them our new house and went out to dinner.

Today we were up again to remove more wallpaper! We almost finished the kitchen when I started pulling at the wallpaper in the living room. This is where we discovered the wallpaper in all the other rooms is coming off SO EASY. Like it giant sheets! We were beyond relieved! LOL We got as much down as we could, but didn’t get quite as much done as we had hoped. (We were wanting to paint this weekend, but I’m thinking it’s going to take us this weekend to remove wallpaper, mirrors and paneling.)

We found wallpaper from the 70s behind the pink paneling! The good news? It was so old it literally fell right off!

When we left the house we did our grocery shopping, meal prepping and got ourselves ready for the week! Now, dinner is in the oven and I’m enjoying the sunshine!

I didn’t take a ton of progress pictures today… but I’ll try to take some to share later this week!

How were your weekends? I hope they were super relaxing and full of fun!

It’s a REALLY big week for me at work this week so I’m not sure how many posts I’ll get up. Please be patient with me! Be sure you’re subscribed so my next post is delivered right to your inbox 🙂

Alright my loves. I’m signing off for the night. I’ll (fingers crossed!) be back tomorrow!


One thought on “Weekend Round Up

  1. Yikes … so much wallpaper! I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can find a place without wallpaper. I looked at a house this past weekend which was completely redone (I think I mentioned that) but it was so small that I have decided to start looking at places that will require some elbow grease to make it exactly what I want. Do you guys have plans to completely redo and major areas (Kitchen, Bathroom, bedrooms??)??
