let's just stay in and hangout

We had a long week with a shoot I was managing. It went really well. The more I do the managing gigs, the more confident I feel every time. It's all about getting the experience right?
Anyway… since it's raining all weekend, I think I'll just stay home and get some work done and then start going through the closet in the nursery, seeing what's a keeper and what's not. I'm in the mood to purge, best take advantage of that mood.

Oh wait… Sunday my sister and nephew come into town and I can't wait to meet him! I've got a serious case of baby fever at the moment which luckily I only caught once I found out I was you know, pregnant. Good timing baby fever.

LJ hopes you all do whatever it is you humans do when it's raining outside.

the office right now

There's been a few tweaks here and there so here's my favorite room in the house.
I guess I'm adding pics of it since I haven't done much to any other room in the house but I'm starting to get the itch to. I just need some serious time off but then again, time off costs money and right now, I really need to be working since this alien is a coming in about 4 months.

two toned kitchens

I've mentioned that eventually we'd love to have a two toned kitchen eventually and as I searched Pinterest to see how trendy it is I realized, wow, it is trendy. Then I thought about resale value on our home and what sort of kitchen a future young woman buying her first house would like and what may persuade her one way or another and thought maybe the kitchen renovation should look a little more traditional than modern. Though even this sort of "traditional" look is a twist and turn away from making it look modern with a few touches here and there.
It's funny when you like something you saw awhile ago and then it becomes so popular that you wonder if you are just following the crowd or actually like the thing you're liking. Ask me again in a few years when we actually get around to remodeling the kitchen.

the innards of the new console

I've been living with it for a few months now and realize I never took pictures of the set up and the insides. There she blows and predictably enough I was watching Golden Girls, it was not staged…  However, I moved the litter box and the cat food for the photograph (and the cats).
It looks pretty great against the green wall and not much has changed with the accessories.
The drawers don't hold anything pretty. Trash bags for the dirty litter.
And the clean litter.
The console has one small section and one larger one. This is the smaller one.
The top shelf has two drawers with cables and such and the games for the PS2. Speaking of which I'm getting rid of it soon. I want a blu-ray player instead. The Wii… meh, I dunno. I got an Apple TV for my birthday last year and it has Neflix, Hulu, my purchased shows and movies… it pretty much replaces the need for anything else in here, except… a blu-ray player.
Bottom shelf has the hard drives and some misc. DVDs and CDs.
The larger side holds the printer, printer accessories, and other assorted things.
Ink and such.
Cameras, other stuff...
And that the tray holds the accessories to elevate my laptop.
It works out perfectly as a sort of entertainment unit in the office.
I love it.
