weekend review.

before h and i went to spain we bought our first place- it's a 2bedroom, 2bath with parking, a deck and a gorgeous kitchen! here is a quick sneak peak:: 


we still have to buy appliances and paint but i cannot wait to move! we worked on the condo all weekend and visited home depot more times than i care to share. hopefully we'll be able to start moving in our stuff soon. i doubt we will have a lot of extra money left to decorate but that is always in the back of my mind. i have been pinning things like crazy onto my 'when we have a house board' on pinterest and i have a few special interior design guest posts scheduled this month to get inspired. i also started cleaning out my closet and i have a number of coach bags + wristlets to sell (email me if you're interested in more info). new condo aside---i got some v happy news from my baby brother--he is engaged!!


how was your weekend?!
do you have any great interior design blogs you'd like to share?  

xo, 
jillian
