Busy Week Ahead

I won't be posting much this week. On Sunday, we are hosting a housewarming party for ourselves. We are inviting Tom's faculty and some people we have met here in Wilmington. It should be fun. I have a menu of small plates planned. usually I make a lot of food but I decided to make some fancy appetizers in shot glasses and tiny plates and cups. Thank goodness for Pinterest and some great ideas.

So this week will involve me finalizing the menu and making a shopping list. I also have to completely clean the house. This weekend it rained all weekend long so we actually got some good work done on the house. We finally got our office in order. It is actually a proper office with a desk, chair and supplies. I cannot believe it. But this also involved my room getting switched around.

I got rid of one of my bookcases to put into the office and a huge chair we have went into my room. That changed the feel of my room. I had to move my photography table to the other side of the room and had to take down my light box. But all is good because I still have a place to take photos and a place for my toys and junk. So photos of my room and office are on hold for now.

Also this week, my dear friend and "little brother" Dion is coming to visit us this weekend. Dion is an architect and one day many many years ago he said if I ever needed design work to call him. So I did. When we bought this house, we knew we were going to renovate our Master Bathroom. We also wanted a covered outdoor space. Well, we also want a den so we were thinking of making an addition to the house.

It's crazy but Tom got crazy and is really considering it. So Dion is coming to take a look at the house and give us ideas on what we can or cannot do. It will be nice to see him since I think it has been ages since we have seen each other. I also hope he can give us some ideas on what we can do for the house.

That's it for now. The good thing is I will have recipes and pictures of my party for next week.
