March. Madness.

These words mean a few things to me:

1. Bye Bye husband!  Basketball madness will be on all day and all night!  I know that I am in for more than I bargained for this year since this is my first married march madness.  I don't know how much basketball I can take.  We shall see!

2. Work has been crazy!  We are short handed right now so we are all picking up extra shifts.  This is great for my paycheck but bad for my sleep schedule. 

3.  Our social life has also been madness.  On my off days we have been very busy.  My family visited last weekend and this coming weekend we are going to Denver Colorado to visit Justin's family.  I am excited but a little nervous how I will do snow skiing.  Hopefully I do not break a bone! 

4.  Spring is here!  This gives us a taste of what summer will be like right around the corner.  I don't know about anyone else but after blizzard weather this winter I am ready for some sunshine! 

Love my new bedroom decorations!!

Living. Room.

For most of you the last time you were in our living room it was either white or white with a few sample paint colors we were trying out.  Here is the new and improved living room of the Wolfe's.  I have a few more things I want to do with it before it is complete but I am loving the way it looks so far. 

The newest addition: White curtains from the Pottery Barn and our wood blinds!

See Louie peeking in the background.

Another new addition from Mrs Melanie Blair!  Super fun! 

Next post will be pictures of the new and improved bedroom!  I ordered our new duvet from  I am excited for it to get here! I hope it gets here before my mom and Rodney get here on Friday. 

One more thing!  Friday is mine and Justin's 6 month wedding anniversary!  How crazy!!! I can't believe how time flies!  I love that man!

I am obsessed with HGTV and fixing up our house.  Not that it needed fixing up but when Justin purchased the house 3 years ago it was brand new and everything was white.  I have taken over the house one room at a time!  I started with the kitchen before we were married.  I just recently did touch ups on the kitchen and have perfected my edging on textured walls and ceilings thanks to some creative thinking and Lowe's.  :-)  We hired the living room to be painted since it is a larger space and where we spend most of our time.  We were going to hire someone to paint the bedroom as well, but I felt more confident in my painting skills and decided to take on the task.  I spent last Friday painting the bedroom "milk chocolate."  While I painted my husband was in the basement working on framing the walls of his new Man cave.  It took me 8 hours to paint and I finished at 1:45 am on Saturday morning.  It turned out great!  

We then decided that maybe we had too much brown going on in our bedroom.  Brown walls, tan floors, brown furniture, brown curtains, and a brown duvet.  Obviously I like brown.....but it is a bit much!  :-)  Shopping time!  Justin agreed that I could use our state tax return to purchase a new duvet and linens to spice up the bedroom with some color.  The verdict is still out on which duvet I will pick!  I ordered some swatches of fabric and they should be in soon!  I will post pictures of our new and improved bedroom once we actually purchase the duvet and get everything settled. 

This Friday my husband and I plan to work on the basement together.  I am not sure how much help I will be since I am not exactly a master contractor. :-)  It should be a great learning experience for me as long as I don't injure myself in some way, which is always possible with me. :-)  We are looking forward to getting the basement finished so we can start enjoying it!  Hopefully this time next month it will be finished!! 

Next week will be a busy week as I work 4 12 hour shifts, but we are looking forward to my mom and stepdad coming to visit for the weekend!!
