New Furniture

We got a bunch of our new furniture delivered today. It isn't situated yet and the paint isn't done on the walls but here is a sneak peak of what our new china cabinets look like. They are all reclaimed wood. One matches the dining room table and the other two are one-of a kind handmade. They are absolutely perfect I love them especially the one with the wrought iron work.

House update

So we've been hard at work putting the modern touch on our traditional house (see what I did there?) but we have not done nearly as much as I had hoped we would by now. 
For some reason I had this crazy idea that we would actually accomplish stuff on weekends but we really haven't been working as much on the weekends as I had planned. 
There really isn't a whole lot to do, and since we have time we are kind of taking advantage of it. 
Our to do list consist of painting every room, refinishing the hardwood floors, some minor updates in the kitchen (including a dishwasher) and the big projects-updating both bathrooms. So far we have painted the ceilings and the dining room. And we refinished the hardwood floors last weekend in every room except the kitchen. 
Ill post pictures soon. (I thought they were on my phone, apparently I was wrong.)
We are having our new living room and dining room furniture delivered tomorrow so we will probably paint the guest bedroom and kitchen while we are waiting on the deliveries.

Big News!

So I promised everyone a big surprise...then I completely forgot to update the blog-o-sphere... Hubby and I bought a new house.  We closed on February 26th and are currently working on making it our own.  The plan is to paint all of the walls, refinish the hardwood floors, make some minor updates to the kitchen, and gut the bathrooms.  So far we have painted the dining room, painted the ceilings and refinished the hardwood floors in every room except the kitchen.  I will post pictures soon I promise :)

Lent

So my bible study thing isn't going too well. I'm reading and studying more than I have in the past but I think I put too much structure to it for me to follow so I'm modifying it to 15-30 minutes per day of God time with the end goal of reading the entire bible and understanding the context and meaning behind what I read. 
With that being said I do not normally make Lenten sacrifices as it is not a part of my religious tradition. I love the beauty of lent and I do try to do something to better myself in God during the season but it is rare that I actually give something up or make a daily challenge type of thing. This year I am going to do something different though. I love getting mail and sending it. I just wrote a letter to my Grandmother which is something I do randomly because I know she appreciates them over emails and Facebook messages. And I'm sure other people appreciate them to. So I'm going to send a letter/card to someone different who I don't see as much as I would like to for the remainder of lent. Hopefully I can make their days a little brighter :)
