New boots!

So, for my birthday back in June, I received some gift cards to DSW. I decided not to spend them and save them for some boots this fall.

Last year I bought the Steve Madden Cybul boots in brown,

So this year I decided to get some black boots. I got the Zigi Soho Mixer boots in black.

I bought me some new Gap skinny jeans and the boots look awesome with them. Bring on fall! I'm ready!

New paint and other updates

Ok, ok. So it's been awhile since I last updated. Life has been crazy busy. With going back to school, work picking up, and trying to do a bunch of crap on the house, there's just not enough time to blog!

I mentioned in my last post that we had picked some color options for our front living room. Well we decided to go with Behr Antique Tin and I absolutely LOVE the way it turned you can see our pretty new floors.

The room still needs baseboards, the front door replaced and the trim, and some finishing touches on the floor, but I had to share the transformation.

Just to refresh your memory, here's what it looked like before.

We also bought a new dining room table. We didn't look at it in person, but after searching for one online for what seemed like forever, this one I really liked. What's nice about it is that the leaf allows it to expand into a square as opposed to a longer rectangle. The square works better for the space we have. The table is through JCP and should be delivered on Tuesday.

I need to take a picture of our hallway because its amazing what some paint and new sconces can do for a hallway. But I'll wait until we get the new closet doors on so I can show the finished product.

As for school, well, it's school. I hated school with every fiber of my being before, so I'm pretty shocked that I actually decided to go back. I am going for my Master's in Engineering Management but had to take an undergrad class in probability and statistics first (since my undergrad is in Chemistry and not Engineering) to be fully accepted into the Master's program. I'm also taking an online class (Managing the Engineering Function) toward my Master's degree which I am allowed to do since the prob and stats class is not required for this class. So yeah, homework sucks but I gotta do what I gotta do.
