Rambling aka Blog Vomit

It's only Wednesday and I'm already going a little bit CRAY spending most of my time in my apartment cooped up while I recover from surgery. I'm tired of wearing t-shirts & stretchy shorts and not doing my hair & makeup. BUT I know that it'll be worth it in the end! Stitches come out Monday so I just have to hang in there until then. Plus, after my appointment, Adam & I are going on a shopping spree to find things that fit the new girls ;)

It's funny because I have so much stuff that I could be getting done for Glisten during this downtime, but I just haven't been in the zone to work on it...it makes me sad to see it all since I know that I can't really workout right now. But today I think I'm gonna suck it up and plan my little heart out. Wish me luck!

I guess I should probably go ahead and find a point to this post, huh? Well I mentioned Monday that Adam is moving this month, and I'm so excited to help decorate the new place! I've scoured Pinterest for ideas that mesh together both of our styles. I like the terms rustic & chic. We love earthy feeling spaces...lots of wood and neutral/clean colors.

I'll be moving in with him in October...that's when my lease is up at my apartment. We went and looked at a house yesterday and we both fell IN LOVE. It's called a "treehouse" and it's right on a river. It's perfect for us. Lots of fun outside space, a huge deck, and um hello IT'S ON THE RIVER. We're excited to take this next step in our relationship, too. Adam is gonna be doing a lot with Glisten...pretty much all the recording/editing of the videos so it'll be awesome to have this place to do that. He wants me to work less where we work now (we work together at an A/C company) so that I can focus more on Glisten! I'm excited about that :)

Adam is planning on building a lot of our furniture. Here are some pins that have inspired us:

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6

I'll keep y'all posted via Twitter how things go with us getting the rental house!
I'm linking up with Michelle for Oh How Pinteresting.



  1. Oh man, I want to live in a treehouse! Sounds like an awesome little place.

  2. Oohh, all kinds of exciting stuff for you!! Absolutely love all the pins! Same taste over here, girl!

  3. Yay on moving! It'll be exciting to move into a new place - especially on the water! And I think the fact that you work at your family's business helps with scaling back your time there to work on Glisten. They totally get it and you'll have more time for your passion!

  4. Those pins are great! Can't wait to see the finished place :)

    Also I totally understand when you say you're not in the right headspace to get things done - I was in hospital for 5 days a few years ago and looking back I'm like 'whyyy didn't I get all these things done?!' but at the time all I wanted to do was just sit there! Sometimes you've just got to take care of yourself :)

  5. So glad to see you back to blogging regularly!! I also need to see the new girls when you're all healed! (And by see I don't mean SEE, just you know see. lol)

    I need to follow your example and get back on the blogging wheel, so much has been going on that I want to share!!!

    And woo hoo to a house! So exciting!

    Ok let me know when you're ready to have some company in Tampa! Cuz I'll be there! :)

  6. I've been in a funk with my business too. I have so many ideas but its hard for me to nail down the details! But I'm making myself get a lot done today.

    *new website, you're mine*

    Good luck girl! Loving those inspo pins!


  7. Cant wait to see what Adam comes up!!!


  8. I love all of these! I can't wait to see what y'all decide!


I love reading your encouraging words :)
Seriously...every comment makes my day a little brighter!
SO THANK YOU for being wonderful!
