Packing and a Hot Makeover

1. You all. I feel as though I will never stop unpacking. Whenever I tell myself that YES INDEED THAT DAY WILL COME, the angsty lyric “never ever ever ever, don’t you even think it” plays in a loop throughout my brain. (At the end of “Joe Lies.” In Say Anything! Duh.) Here is a snapshot of the one room I FEEL as though I’ve spent days on.

This is probably the most organized room in the house as of 2:46pm PST.

(Long ass sigh.)

2. Since I will undoubtedly be huffing cardboard for the remainder of the week, please enjoy a new video series entitled Gone Style’s Five Minute Makeover. (Then you can explain to me how I got so lucky as to work with Rebecca Woolf and Josie Maran because, well, DUDE.)

    I should have come down this week instead of last so that I could help you unpack. Or take Wito to the beach with me.

    But DUDE – you’re finally in there! I can’t wait to see the final result after you and D have your way.

    Oh, I feel your pain. (Between 2003 and 2007 I moved 5 times. FIVE TIMES of packing, throwing away, loading, unloading, unpacking, throwing more away, and rearranging. Oh, the rearranging.)

    Like I said, I feel your pain. Best of luck…

    Awesome video! Loved your hair picks, and I hope we get to see the results of the makeover!

    Good luck with the unpacking…moving is always a rough ride.

    You made it out of your last house, so you will make it in to this one…one day :)

    Unpacking (and packing) is so one of those moments where you wish you could just wiggle your nose and poof, it’d be done.

    Love the Gone Style video, very cool!

    Good thing you’re not sporting a big baby belly yet. At least you can still bend over. Good luck!

    Great, now I have Joe Lies stuck in my head.

    First of all, love the 5 minute makeover. LOVE.

    Second, WHO is the second to last celeb you show in the hair portion? Because I’m afraid I’m gonna need that hair. So cute.

    I can’t watch the video right now, but I just had to say that your reference to that song in “Say Anything” just made my day….that was a perfect scene. (“Joe lies….when he cries….” LOL

    i suggest taking it all out of the boxes breaking them down and then putting the stuff away it seems to make me feel like the end is closer!
    love the nomad!
