This week has been insanity. I have an install later on today and the week or two before hand is always madness.

Highlights of the week have been:
- Handful of seamstresses flaking out on me when I need curtains/pillows/cushions made.
- Fabric on backorder that has yet to arrive and I need 4 pillows made with it!
- Massive graphic designer problems as we tried (actually still trying) to do a little DIY project we dreamed of doing in one of the rooms.

Plus my house looks like this:

and this:

and my office looks like this:

Still need to run out and grab a couple more items, head to the new seamstress (yay!) and pick up everything and head to clients home and get it all put together.

While I would love to say I'm going to relax over the weekend it's not happening. I need to finish my bed, finish a paint project and hang a bunch of things in my house!

What are you up to this weekend? Please say you will be having more fun than me. :)

I so wish I were doing what you are doing this weekend, but I am not. My family (husband & two kiddos) and I will be traveling 3 hours away to attend a wedding outside on Saturday. Oh, did I mention I live in Texas? It should be outlawed to have a wedding outside in August in TEXAS!

Try to get some rest!

I feel just like you! I'm having a party tomorrow and have 1 million things to do, work my normal job, and at some point take a shower??!!! All those bags make me happy inside.

I feel like my house always looks like as of late haha! It makes me feel crazy!

I will have a little fun on Saturday... but when we're not out celebrating other people's milestones, we'll be knocking some projects off our always growing to-do list, and cleaning!

Try to enjoy it at least a little! :)

Maybe I'll be having more fun than you, but I doubt it.
My family is insisting I go camping.

Don't fret my friend, the fruits of you labor will be worth all the effort that goes into making an interior a home. Good luck!

Sounds like you had a busy week, Camila! Hope you get time to recoup this weekend. No big plans for me -- hoping to get a few small things done around the house but R&R is definitely on the top of my list!

Phew! Good luck!! I have a bunch of nursery projects to finish up including finishing bumpers, crib skirt, organizing the closet and changing table and hanging my giant CB2 abacus in there somewhere. Nesting in full effect :)

Perhaps it is just me, but I think your weekend sounds really good. I'd love to be a fly on the wall, or an additional set of hands to help! You're doing great work up there next to the big city!
