Itâ€™s Fridayâ€¦which means I donâ€™t feel guilty about eating a cookie for breakfast. Vacation doesnâ€™t officially kick off until tomorrow but hey, why not start the indulgences early?
This has been a big week and Iâ€™m excited about so many things. I just did my first-ever podcast interview (more on that next week!), delivered a brand system to someone I hugely admire and today marks the day that construction on our bathroom is finished!
Speaking of the bathroom, I canâ€™t wait to share the full reveal with you once Iâ€™m back! There are always so many unexpected ups and downs when you tear a room apart. Years ago, someone told me that any remodeling project is guaranteed to take 3 times longer and cost 3 times as much â€” and now, I totally agree. Haha.
I canâ€™t show you the full room yet (shelves are being built in today and a few finishing items we ordered still havenâ€™t showed up) but hereâ€™s a close-up of my favorite part: this damn wallpaper (see below). Itâ€™s no longer just a dream! And, it turned out to be the biggest headache ever. Joey and I were bewildered that something so seemingly easy could be so difficult but Iâ€™ll save the full story for the reveal. Thankfully, itâ€™s done. Sweet relief!
I still have a lot of projects to wrap up before boarding my first fight (of many) tomorrow, not to mention figuring out how to pack my small carry-on like the ultimate game of Tetris to fit the maximum amount of shoes in. I love a good challenge. 😉
Have a great weekend â€” I hope youâ€™re managing to squeeze in your own adventures to make the most of this last bit of Summer!
