Closing time, time for you to go out, go out into the world...

Who else loves 90's music as much as I do? I love that Semisonic song, but "closing time" for me these days is not as much about a bar, as it is about a house! Yep, we closed on the house yesterday so now I my parents are officially (second) homeowners! Exciting times, but stressful times for sure.

We have some serious decisions to make this weekend and in the coming weeks, and I will be glad when they are made. I did go down to the house yesterday afternoon, and it looks much different empty (read "looks like it needs much more work than I thought") I took pictures of each room so I can compare after all of the renovations are over. I might show y'all a sneak peak of the "before" this weekend, but you will have to wait until it is finished to see most of the pictures.

My dad is in Cali visiting my brother this weekend, so my mom and I are going to be doing some furniture/ decor shopping alone this weekend (dad usually has to approve everything). Our first stop is going to be Scott's Antique Market, you can read a previous post about Scott's here.

That will be an all day adventure, and will hopefully be successful! Otherwise it will be a low-key weekend for me. I am looking forward to some R&R, because I was going NONSTOP last weekend!

What are your plans for the weekend? Do tell!

I hope y'all have a great weekend!

Ooooh, that Scott's place looks so cool! You'll have to post your finds! I had a pretty low-key weekend which is the norm for me in the summer and it was nice!

Congratulations! You all are going to have so much fun decorating! Moving/buying/selling is so stressful. I feel your pain for sure. Hopefully you did in fact relax. Have a great week!

hey ruthie. thrilled I stumbled upon your blog. I'm following, I hope you will as well. I started my blog a little over 3 months ago after graduating from college in the south and moving across the country to LA. The site's all about celebrity fashion from the point of view of an LA stylist. I'd love if if you'd stop by to see multiple post a day on all the latest celebrity fashion news. Any support would be awesome. Thanks love. xoxo
