Where Have You Been {All My Life}? A Blog Update

Oh man, I’m so sorry (not for the Rihanna reference, though. It’s bound to get stuck in your head like it is in mine). I just checked into my blog and realized I’ve left it alone for far too long! It’s been since August! How can that even be…

Either way, there’s been a lot going on over here. I’ve gotten through many different projects, which I’ve only really teased on my Instagram. I’ll hopefully get to posting all about them in the next few days. No more excuses!


And so, without further ado, my first project post since August.


One of my projects on my summer list included renting one of those massive carpet cleaners and doing a little DIY cleaning around the house. I’m not thrilled to have inherited off white carpeting in two thirds of our house, but for right now it’s what we have to live with and so I have to make do. I had a bit of time off from school so I headed over to one of my favorite places on earth, LOWES, and picked up my very own rented carpet cleaner. I decided to use the heavy duty cleaner with it because I assumed that they would really need some deep cleaning.

Boy was I right. I mean, come on, we’re not gross over here in this household but goodness the color of the water that came out of the dirty bin. YUCK!

But the project was surprisingly simple! I was so pleased with myself and how bright the carpets dried.  The rental was for 24 hours and I was able to get all the rooms cleaned and dried in that time. In fact, I turned the cleaner in almost 24 hours on the dot. So, needless to say, I didn’t flood the house or ruin the carpets. We’ve thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful, clean smell around the house and the lack of dirt stains for several weeks. Now, I’m wondering how often I need to do this without disliking myself greatly. Though, after lugging that machine around for several hours, my arms and legs felt awesome. It is certainly a work out carrying that machine up and down two flights of stairs.


So there you have it, I’m back and ready for more blogging! What have you all been up to? Any fun projects? Ideas?
