All Jacked Up

It is almost weekend time, boys and girls!  Woot!  And boy do I have a lot going on.  Well, kind of, I guess.

First of all, and I am so excited about this, I am working on redecorating my den.  We just had the carpet replaced- and NO I do not even want to think about much less discuss the old carpet ::gag::- and now I'm moving on to the couches.  Instead of replacing them, I opted for slipcovers.  A much less expensive option, especially since there is nothing wrong with the couches other than the fact that they don't match and I need to brighten up the room.  Enter, my new sage slipcovers.

I hope they look good in person.

That will be project one for the weekend.  Then, we have this massive bookcase that just needs a major overhaul.  For years it held all of Jax's junk.  Now it holds all of our junk.  Mostly just DVDs, old VHS tapes, some books, pictures, and knick knacks.  It needs some organization and maybe some color because it is in the corner and really dark.  I need to Google some inspiration.  And then maybe hit Steinmart or Marshalls for some cute, cheap dustcatchers.

Oh, and I'm not really sorry to report this, but the deer are gone.  And I'm not sure that they are coming back.  However, Jax has promised me that the living room will be finished next year so that I will actually have a mantel to hang our stockings on.  YAY!

Other things on tap for the weekend: filing our taxes, attending a birthday party for one of LJ's friends (the kid is turning one, so it is really an adult party), and watching some racing.  Yes, I watch NASCAR.  And I love it.  The science behind it is pretty interesting.  And it makes for a good long afternoon nap if LJ will allow.  Oh, and the race is on Saturday night- Bud Shootout- but it means that Sunday racing is on its way!

If all that wasn't enough, I'm heading out early from work!  And picking up a keg!  And watching Tuesday night's episode of Glee!  Does it get any better than that?!  In case you are wondering, I got Jax a kegerator for Christmas year before last.  I'm a pretty dang good wife.  But he can be a good wife, too- cleaning and cooking and whatnot.  He deserved a nice kegerator.

Have a great weekend, y'all!


  1. Sage is my favorite color! I think that slip cover looks fabulous! I love that you are picking up a keg ;) Glee's episode was good too, you'll like it!

  2. Of course you are a great wife. Even I would marry you if it meant you bought me kegs!!

    I've thought about a slip cover, too. You will have to let me know how it holds up after having a couple of lazy asses on it all day..Have fun decorating!!
