The past couple days I've felt incredibly motivated to get things done. I have tons of projects around the house I need to finish, but mostly my motivation channeled itself into starting and finishing new projects. Either way it felt good to finish some projects! I made a DIY bench out of an old pallet. It's a bit rickety and I sort of just winged it, but I like it! It might need some reworking in the future, but we have a bench on our porch now and it's awesome. I also got inspired to create some hanging flower pots, macrame style. And I strung up some fun lights in the backyard! Our house is truly starting to feel like a home. Oh, and Ruthy and I are organizing a fun blogger social event in late July, so that's happening too (deets hopefully coming soon)! I almost finished my coffee table DIY but I don't have the right length screws, so that will have to wait till tomorrow. Even Dan was tripping on the motivation fumes because he's been fixing up the El Camino like nobody's business. Fixed my broken ignition, choke, stereo, and subwoofer. Okay, well, some of those things only had a blown fuse, but it's still awesome to have stuff working. Feels great to actually get things done.

This dress is actually a nightgown, but when I saw it I immediately thought it'd be beautiful styled as a maxi dress. I just put a slip beneath it to keep it from being too sheer, and voila! A goddess maxi dress. And it's short enough that I don't have to wear huge platform heels to keep it from dragging on the ground. Usually when I wear maxi dresses I have to wear huge shoes, but this one is just right.
