a vacation does a body (& spirit) good…

{Original post date: 5/27/09}

we are back! well, we’ve been home for about a week & a half…but you know what i mean. 🙂 we had a fabulous time in the city of nashville, tn. people are really nice there. but, we did notice less that 5% of cars had turn signals that worked. quite sad! oh, & we saw this speed limit sign that made us laugh out loud, & we just had to take a picture!

we had to take a picture for proof. speed limit 24!! hahahaha!!

it was so refreshing to get away. even though we were only gone 3 days, it was enough. 🙂 after all the work on the house, it was a nice break. we didn’t keep a schedule. we just bummed around nashville & went to franklin, enjoyed the scenery, ate delicious food, slept in, & listened to some stellar musicians…it was great. 🙂

when we got home, i worked at finishing the buffet we bought off craigslist. i sanded it down & painted it. i think it turned out really well. you can kind of see it in the picture of the dining room.

we also made a stop at ikea during our get-away. all i can say is – “wow!”…we had never been to an ikea, only browsed online. the store is a little overwhelming, to say the least, but oh-so-fun & affordable! we found some fun stuff to accent our new space. 🙂

here are some pics of our continued progress…

still a work in-progress. but, it is so fun finding treasures to decorate our home with. 🙂

until next time…”keep calm & carry on”
