IT'S THE FREAKIN' WEEKEND! almost. things are finally wrapping up at the house and this weekend we can finally begin to put our lives back together.

here is a gander at the kitch/sink situation:

that backsplash is delicious. don't ya think? and i've always wanted a farmer's sink. we found this online for HALF off! PLUS a coupon code. seriously y'all. eBay and the internet are your bff's when you need stuff like this. never ever pay full price at a showroom. that's just my opionion though. also one thing i've learned- always google coupon codes for the store. 6 out of 10 times i find one and it's usually 20 to 25 percent off! GUHD stuff right there. rilll guhd.

let's move on to my friday finds.

i love me some anthro as much as the next girl, but sometimes their prices are just ridic right?

for example this new pillow: 300 bones.

and i'm 99.9% sure that it's the exact same as this pillow:

...just turned sideways.  and this one comes to you at just $65 bones.

cray right?  PS. contact me if you're interested in said pillow.
i'm going through a tribal/moroccan phase as of late.  like drooling over these fabrics:

delightful.  again, contact me if you're interested in said fabrics becoming a fluffy pillow.  starting at $18 bones (not including fabric). that's a steal, y'all.

i love eBay. + essie. so what's better when the two are combined? recently i bought one bottle of essie for 8 dollars plus tax.  i mean it's kinda worth it, but then i decided to search on eBay to see if stores/salons were selling some for a good deal. and voila. CLICK HERE.

5,000 options. make sure to click "new" on the left. not sure why people would put their used nail polish up anyways but ew.

this one is my fav. pick 10 colors (from their options) for $26.99. my kinda deal.

happy happy monday! i'm not too happy because once again, i am confined to the walls of our house morning until night afternoon, while they do more installations.

the nice thing about our weekend was mainly that no one was here. i actually got to breathe fresh air more than an hour at a time.  we got to drink chispas (our new fav SA drink) and live a normal life for a couple of days.  'twas nice. vewy nice.

let's take a gander at a the bath & kitch:

new cabinets! new vanity!!!!!
ignore the mirror etc. that is all goin bye bye.

subway tile DONE!
there is also white glossy tile hiding under the brown paper, but she will be revealed soon.

word to tha wise: not everything exactly works out as you imagine in your head. esp with an older house.  we weren't able to center the globes right over the "bar island" due to beams/electrical wiring. something you just have to get over and make on the spot decisions about.  i'm the type of person who constantly over analyzes and second guesses things like this, but after a marg or two, the anxiety goes away and you're just thankful you were able to add globes in the first place. ok that's enough of all that.

things with miss bluebonnet are coming along smooth.  we are in the final revision on the website and CROSS OUR FINGERS everything will be ready to go july 15.  i hope i hope i hope.  

how was y'alls weekend? any updates or gossip i need to know about? please share.  PS. i am now also addicted to RHNJ. Theresa sucks.
