Remember Me? + The ORC

April 2, 2014

hellllllooooooooooooooo. my how i have missed you, friends. it is not even the slightest exaggeration to say that my life is not the same without you. i mean, there's this presh little baby angel:


but there's not you. i can't promise to be here everyday, but i will be more present in general. and, you know, there will be occasional baby photos so it all evens out.

let's just get right to it, shall we? first, a bit of housekeeping. i got ambitious and decided that updating the look of BIA would get me all amped to blog again. not so. t'was a bit of a headache and i still haven't perfected all the bits and pieces so please try your very bestest not to judge. i'm sure i'll have it in working order by this time next year.

do notice that my new header is hella awesome (thank you, casey!!!!!) and may or may not remind you of a certain someone's brass fetish. i'm not saying that i have a problem....but others like to remind me that i do. for now, you can shop some of that goodness here so i can continue to buy without reaching hoarder status.

we can all thank linda for getting my arse back to blogging as i have the great great honor of participating in this round of the ORC. woop! i have followed this deeeelicious challenge since the very first round, so i am quite elated to be a player this time. (did you know that you can do it, too?)

while i thought i would finally address our master bedroom for the challenge, i've decided to tackle the office instead. and when i say office, i mean glorified storage room for brass shop inventory. this space has been neglected from day one (which was roughly two years ago). actually, i had it cleared and decorated-ish, but then we found out we needed a nursery so the overwhelm returned. i really just need this room organized and pleasant to be in. it is currently neither of these things. at the risk of scaring you all away immediately, here's what we're dealing with:

ummmmmm.....brace yourselves.







 
i know. so embarrassing. but i have a plan!
several to choose from, actually, which we shall discuss next week.

now let's go see where these fine peeps are starting out:

Loving the new brassy logo and loving to see you back at it sister. I am sure you have something divine planned for your office. If you run out of space to store your brass hoard, send them over my way. No such thing as too much brass in my house.

The best "afters" come from the..uh..lowliest "befores," right? Truly, though, the room has fantastic natural light, and so much PO-ten-SHULLL!
Can't wait! ;)

I for one am very happy you're doing your office because as it turns out that's next of my list of rooms to complete. I'll be looking to you for some great ideas!. Ava is adorable x 1000!!

You have the perfect 'excuse' to slack off on blogging dear, good luck with this challenge, I'm excited to follow along!

Reichel Broussard said...

Can't wait to see how you transform the space. I'll definitely keep an eye out on how you plan to keep things organized. I always need help on that front :)

A Perfect Gray said...

lawdy, that's a purdy baby.

Tiffany said...

First off, your baby is adorable. Mine is 18 months and growing too fast. I'm excited about your office makeover. I'm working on my own little office space right now so it's nice to have some extra inspiration.

Casa Vilora Interiors said...

What a beautiful baby!!! I can't wait to see your plan unfold for your ORC

Kimberly Hughes said...

Avabean is just the most gorgeous thing in the world - I'm not actually sure how you manage to do anything except stare into that squidgy face all day :) Saying that, selfishly, I'm THRILLED you are doing this! Can't wait to see what you do and honestly, that room isn't too bad (you should see my guest bedroom/dumping ground). You will be working some serious magic I have no doubt! Welcome back! xxx

designchic said...

So happy you are back and love seeing your precious little one!! Can't wait to follow along on your transformation!

Wonderful Life! said...

Thanks for showing the office pics! Mine is worse!! Cannot wait to see the transformation, and perhaps gain a bit of inspiration to tackle my own mess!

Oh hai!!! Missed you, mean it.

sarah sofia knepp said...

Can't wait to see what you do with your office, mine is a work in progress. What a cutie! Having two young girls myself, 18 months a part, has proven there is little free time. However, this ORC newbie is working on the master.
