late to the party

sweater: H&M; leggings {gift} {similar}; belt: Kohls; boots: UrbanOG {similar}

I'm late.
I hate being late, remember?
{I giggle at that word every time {grow up me}}
But I'm still linking up with one of my faves, Shanna for Random Wednesday.
On Thursday.  
Because it's my blog and I dowhadIwant, yo.
And random is my middle name. Not really. But I bought a freakin' five-foot horse canvas. If that's not random I don't know what is. So this link up is right up my alley.

{horse canvas: Home Goods; pillows here, here, here {and bird pillow not online}: Kohls; floor lamp: Target}

 1. I enjoy animals - birds, especially - as part of home decor. Shawn does not. He thinks we have enough animals in our house, i.e. the live ones. But I do the decorating {except in his man cave}, so I win on the issue. But I have limited the bird-ness during our little home makeover to that one pillow you see above and two prints that will be hanging in our bedroom soon. It's all about compromise, people.

2. I HATE dirty cars. Especially when the inside of cars are dirty. Not just mine. Everyone's. I got into Shawn's car to go to my wisdom teeth surgery last week and there were chocolate crumbs on the seat I was going to sit on, empty water bottles and coffee mugs, clothes, papers, wrappers, you name it. Needless to say, I voiced my disapproval. My car isn't spotless right now, but I my dad {spoiled much? He likes doing it and he's pretty damn good at it!} cleans my car regularly, more regularly than Shawn. Tisk-tisk, buddy!

3. Shawn is a NEAT FREAK when it comes to our house. I guess the buck stops there. But I'm not complaining. Except when I have to ride in his dirty car ;)

4. Gosh, I want a house. With a garage, a big yard for the dogs, and an extra bedroom I can turn into a huge closet. We're not close to buying a house yet - we're getting there slowly - but I look for them almost everyday. And I get so disappointed when I find ones I love! I really need to stop torturing myself like that. It's not normal. Good things come to those who wait, right?! Does it still count if I'm impatient? Jeezums, I hope so.

5. I will not have been home before 7 p.m. any day this week. Gives me the sads. And Saturday, I will be gone from probably 8:30 a.m. til at least 10-10:30 p.m. Right now, I'm in a love/hate relationship with being busy.

Congrats are in order for Kristin and her hubby on their new baby girl!

It's funny- I think bird decor is SO super cute, but yet I hate birds in real life... a LOT, lol!

And I hear you on the house thing. We do have a house, but it's TINY and although I try to be grateful, I find myself day dreaming of our 'next' house which is a loooong time away!

I was late to Shannas party too. I love this outfit!

My car is always disgusting and my hubs gets SO mad at me! In my defense (ie excuse) I wait until I can recycle my diet coke cans when I get home...

I so miss my clean car. I once had a clean car. Then my car got old and gross and then we got Sherman. So now it's an old ugly car covered in dog hair. It's been a crazy week over here too. Bring on the holidays!

i had a love/hate relationship with busy too i long to be busy but when i am busy i just want to not be, is there ever a happy medium?

Amanda said...

What is it with men and coffee cups?! My hubby leaves them EVERYWHERE!!!

I also love bird decor but hate live birds as pets, is that random?! Sure!

The Students Wife said...

Katie said...

"And random is my middle name. Not really. But I bought a freakin' five-foot horse canvas." HAHAHA I got a good chuckle out of that :) And, yes, I am super guilty for looking at houses. It's bad. ONE day...

I used to live out of my car {practically}, so it was always dirty, but now it is much easier to keep clean. It's amazing how growing up makes you want things clean.
