1st picture: the Instagram version of my life.
2nd picture: my reality.
We’re moving out of our rental house in 2 weeks but getting all our stuff packed into our rv starting this weekend. Total insanity doesn’t even begin to describe my life right now. 🤪And to top it off, we’re heading to #lasgaviotas Mexico again for a week before we move. It’s either a really good idea, or a really bad one...

We interrupted our shopping trip with a little salvage shopping for the house, but with no success 👎🏻. I’m searching for 3 different sizes of doors and didn’t feel like paying $650 for my favorite.

Day 2 in San Francisco. Starting our day off right at @thecrepehouse11. Our plans include Lombard street, Ohmega salvage, the painted ladies, and of course more shopping!

Celebrating (a month late) this girl turning 13 with a shopping trip in the city. She is such a delight!

Early morning check-in at the property. The barn siding is looking 👌🏼. The French doors are getting installed in the main house now, stairs are being built, rough-ins are getting finished... #soexciting!!!

Tip: I always keep my leftover paint swatches from my own projects and client projects - it’s amassing to quite the collection 😳. Even if I find a color that’s not carried in the store, @homedepot has been awesome about color matching whatever I bring them.

How am I already at this point?! I’m choosing exterior paint colors for the house and barn this week. The barn will be black (#blackbarn) and the house white ⚫️⚪️. But that’s still a lot of choices for just those 2 colors! I’m starting with @behrpaint because they’ve always been so good to me, but tell me what are your favorite white and black paint colors?

I think we might have chosen our flooring for upstairs today 🤗! Sean and I picked out 6 different samples and they all looked nearly identical - apparently we knew what we wanted! These 2 samples are the final contenders and at this point it all comes down to price 💸. @monarchplank vs grand pacific hardwood

22 years ago, this boy asked me out. Best thing I ever said yes to.

We spent all day “cleaning the house” yesterday, prepping every space for drywall getting delivered this week - eek!!! We decided it was quitting time when the temp reached 92* 😓. That’s what fall on the central coast is like!

I finally chose the exterior lights for our house! Possibly the hardest decision yet, for some strange reason 🤨. @barnlightusa

Windows are in and I’m all 😍😍😍! For those that are curious, these are @andersen_windows 100 series. .
