What a week! Ahhhh! Do you feel that year-end rush of holiday parties, last minute gift buying and wrapping up loose ends on work projects all hitting at once? I sure do! I feel like the last few weeks have been on fast forward and admittedly, I’m barely keeping up.
I expected the end of the year to be quiet (what was I thinking?!!) but things at Branch have been picking up steam much faster than expected. I can’t complain on that end — it makes me happy that things are shaping up quickly since we’ve only been around three months now. Bring on the busy!
In other news, we’ve been trying to get our house together for our party but of course, nothing ever quite goes as planned! While some rooms of our place tend to look picture perfect, there are a few I’ve never shown (and for good reason.) The worst by far is the bathroom on the main floor which probably hadn’t been upgraded since 1928. Cue leaky pipes, terribly wallpapered shelves and layers of peeling paint. Joey just demolished it yesterday and it’s a pretty shocking sight. Hearing a crowbar go through the wall directly below my office freaked me out! Rome wasn’t built in a day and for my dream bathroom to happen, it had to be taken down to the rafters. Thankfully for our party revelers, we have two more bathrooms. 😉
Tonight, I’m looking forward to catching up with family and friends and being a legit gown-up for once. I’ve never been great at party planning or entertaining and it’s time to start changing that.
Have an awesome weekend, everyone. I’ll see you back here on Monday with party photos!
