Music Monday: This ain't no jive turkey

I hadn't heard of Mayer Hawthorne until a couple days ago.  Someone younger and way cooler was talking about him at work.  I'm hooked.  The video is good too, click here to see it.   He's got such a great 60s vibe.  

I know this blog has been super quiet and boring lately.  It's tough to pack up a house that you have lived in for most of your adult life.  Add to that a couple kids and a husband and we've got a lot of stuff.  Nuff said.  I may go through some peaks and valleys over here but can't wait to start some new projects when we get settled.  I do Instagram quite a bit though so you can always follow me over there in the meantime.    

We closed on the new house on the 15th and have been over there the past two weekends in a row.  When we got in we started ripping up carpet right away and couldn't believe what we found underneath.  This is going to be Sammy's room.  The carpet was old and gross.  I can't believe these beauties were waiting for us. 
We are sanding everything right now (which I might already be regretting)!  The floors are in great shape all things considered but could use some love.  If we don't do it now, it will never happen.  We've got until the 15th of next month to be all moved in but time is moving fast.  We only have the weekends to work on it so even though it seems like a long time it's really only about 6 solid days.  I am  still giddy with excitement.  xoxo, Amy


  1. No way!!! They look awesome! I'm just so freaking excited for you guys :)

  2. Love when you get a surprise like wood floors!! We were hoping we would find the same thing, but nope we had to recarpet the upstairs. Good for you for working on them now though, our last house had wood floors that had some mysterious (pet) stains, but we just covered them with rugs! Ha! Can't wait for you to get all moved in!

  3. Woo hoo! Did you ever watch "If Walls Could Talk" on HGTV? I love that show! So much cool stuff tends to end up in homes where you least expect it! I came across your blog and am your newest follower. I would love if you’d visit : the daily savant : and follow back (if you like)!

    I have a Betsey Johnson giveaway on now! I also have a choose-your-prize jewelry giveaway going on now, as well!
