This is not my first attempt at a blog, but it is the first time I'm taking it seriously.
HI. I'M EMILY. NICE TO MEET YOU.
When I was a child, I used to say that when I grow up I want to be a mom. That's always been my dream and now it's finally happened. I'm a mother to the most amazing daughter, my Annie. Now as I'm entering the next stage of my life, and as I continue riding the crazy train of motherhood, I insist (I really do...I INSIST!) on achieving a new dream as well. Compared to my first dream it's a little power nap of a dream, but it's still pretty wonderful.
Until now, I never knew what I wanted to do career-wise. I've thought about being a teacher or going back to working in computer management, and then a few weeks ago something clicked (it could have been the gears in my brain clicking back into place after being off-track all this time or it could have been my clicky pen...either way there was a CLICK!). I want to open my own consignment store and I want to do it in the next 5 years.
YES THAT'S RIGHT I SAID IT. 5 YEARS = EMILY OPENING STORE.
Along with consignors' inventory in the store, I want to have my own stock of refurbished furniture and functional (hopefully) home decor items. To meet this goal, I will learn how to repurpose and refurbish furniture and I will do it damn well. I know I need to learn the consignment process and what it's like to be a consignor so...there's this thing called a "blog". And in this so-called "blog", my adventures will be chronicled. I hope that they will all be successful (my adventures...not all blogs in general, well okay...I hope that too), but we know that's impossible because I mess up alot. Not only am I clumsy, I'm also impatient and often refuse to follow instructions. Thankfully for you it'll be extremely entertaining for you all to read!
I am making a promise now to write an entry every day and fill it with pictures that you want to see. I will link up to other blogs so you can see what others are doing out there because let's be honest, I'm probably not going to be the best at repurposing furniture or decorating/staging areas, etc. Hopefully you'll still like me anyway. And I know I'm at the very beginning of the process and there are doubts and worries that I will forever be struggling with, but no matter what happens, I know I'll be living this dream the way I want to live it.
THIS IS THE PART WHERE I THANK YOU AHEAD OF TIME BECAUSE NO ONE IS READING MY BLOG AFTER JUST ONE POST.
Thank you to all you future readers out there. I hope you like what you read and I hope to come to know you well.
I REALLY HOPE THIS LOOKS GOOD AFTER I'M DONE WITH IT OTHERWISE I'LL GO...KICK...CHOP...EH, I'LL JUST BE PISSED. YEAH. THAT'S IT. NOTHING REALLY DRAMATIC. JUST PISSED.
This is my upcoming project. Exciting huh? I bought this walnut dining set at the Antique Mall in Spring, TX for $93. It was 75% off the original price. That is an INSANE price for such a great piece (or really pieces).
This project may take a month just because I'm getting decorations ready for Annie's 1st birthday. But just stay with me and I'll keep you updated on the progress!
HEY. WAIT. HOLD ON. I WANTED TO SAY ONE MORE THING BEFORE PEOPLE ASK.
I'm well aware that the word "beasts" can sometimes look like "breasts" and therefore my blog looks like it's named "Lovely Breasts". I'm thinking that'll get me more readers...although they'll probably be pretty pissed when they find out the blog is full of pictures of furniture instead of boobs.
