I hate that this has been such a recurring theme around here lately. I won't bother with the excuses, because you know how it goes. You're busy, I'm busy, we're all busy. If I'm honest, it's more than just that. Sometimes I just don't have the motivation to put time and energy into my blog. I always figured that Sweet V would grow with me and there would be times in my life that I would put more into it than others. This may be one of those lull times. The good news is that I'm 100% officially done with college classes! It was more than just a little sad to pack up and leave College Station for good, but I'm so excited for what's ahead. I finished my time in kindergarten and I start my student teaching in January. I'm happy to report that I'll be getting to know 20+ bright-eyed 4th graders in the upcoming months.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen a few glimpses of what I've been up to recently. I made a pretty drastic change to my hair and cut off about 7".
Is it bad that I'm already starting to miss it? Although, a fresh cut is always nice. And it does help that it's 50 times easier to style now.
Also, now that I finally have some time off, I'm excited to get working on some of my to-do list projects. First up is a quilt for myself. I've made quilts only a few other times, always for other people. This time I'm making one all for me, with some of my favorite colors.
I'm looking forward to posting pictures of the final product.
Another exciting thing is that I've found an apartment for the Spring! I've always lived in student living housing and have had to use whatever furniture they've provided, but this time I get to furnish it myself. I've been saving up for months to try and afford decent furniture. I'm quickly finding out that it's more expensive than I'd thought. We'll just have to see how it all comes together. Here's my blank canvas:
What do you think of this wall (below) as a chalkboard wall? Is that a bad decision as a renter? Opinions and expertise welcome. And on that note, I'm open to any inexpensive furniture/decor stores suggestions as well. Send 'em my way.
I've got some DIY decor projects planned. I'm even going to try my hand at some simple carpentry. We'll just have to see how that goes... I'll keep you in the loop. (;
