Memorial Day Weekend

every year i look forward to Memorial Day weekend. not only is it a time to pay tribute to those who serve our county, to many, it is also the begining of summer!

for the past 3 years that i have known my roommate, we have gone up to Long Beach Island, NJ (LBI), where she is from. it is about 18 mi long and at its widest point, .5mi wide. it is scattered with georgous houses and bungalows. it has great beaches, shopping and more than 100 restraunts. i would say that it is about 100x better that Ocean City, MD or Rehobeth Beach, DE.

this year we took advantage of the Memorial Day yard sales and i found a great table, for only $40. i plan to sand it down and restain it. similar to this one... i love the black chunky legs and the natural color top.

it will be great and so much nicer that the table i currently have. the one i have now is so small!
there are some big changes going on here. we are currently living without countertops in our kitchen, oh, no sink or stove either. IT TOTALLY SUCKS!!!

we are eating off of paper plates with plasticware and plastic cups (feel like i am in college again) and washing whatever dishes we use in a small 1/2 bath. hopefully this week we will get a phone call to schedule an install date. it has been almost 2 weeks!

a lot of my inspiration has come from Layla over that The Lettered Cottage... I have posted about her before and i ADORE her kitchen... and basically all of her room makeovers... CAN'T wait to see her guest room makeover that is going to have it's full reveal shortly and on her blog she is giving away some of her Quote Jars... this would be so cute to put in the guest room!

To sign up for your own quote jars... visit The Lettered Cottage and follow her directions...

Good Luck... I am crossing my fingers....

You can also visit this other great blog and look at more great giveaways! I love free stuff...
