It’s the end of my first semester in grad school – which means I have a LOT of cramming, presentation making, and paper writing to do.

Before I lose all ability to put a sentence together, I just wanted to let you know that I’m planning on taking (most of) the next week off of home projects to study. It’s probably for the best – the amount of coffee I’m consuming would probably lead to some not-so-steady paint lines.

I’ll be back next week with more progress on the study-o. And just in case you were bummed about me making no new updates on the house for a little while, I can promise you that there are a few things that are still coming soon.

For instance:  I took a trip down to Atlantic Station to visit my local West Elm earlier this week.

Why? So I could pick up something in this picture:

And just because that wasn’t enough, I also picked up some matching SKAGERN hand towels from Ikea:

Ready to make some progress (when the steam is no longer coming out of my ears)? Yep, I think so. Wish me luck!
