Happy Hump Day, y’all!
Well, the kiddos have another snow day. #imsooooooversnowdays
If you follow me on Instagram and watch my stories, you know that we had a “dusting” come through Kentucky Sunday night that turned into about 8 inches!!!
Although I am NOT a “snow girl,” I will admit that this was one of the pretties snowfalls I have seen in Kentucky in a long time! It was like Narnia in my front yard. haha!
We lost our power about 10:00 am Monday morning, which made for a looooong day home with the kiddos. My computer and all of our devices ran out of “juice,” and the tv was out too. So they usually things they do to keep them busy on a snow day were not available. They did go play in the snow for a bit, but boredom sat in pretty quickly.
Since we had no power, I couldn’t work in my office, or do laundry, or wash dishes, (okay, the last two I wasn’t very upset about!). :)
We ended up going to a matinee of Peter Rabbit, and it was so cute! Our power was still off when we got home, and we found out it wouldn’t be back up until the next day. We had not options for back up heat, so we got a hotel in Lexington for the night. The kids loved it!! haha!
Yesterday morning, I had to go to a friend’s house to shower and fix my hair, and then our electricity finally came back on after lunch. I have a whole new appreciate for electricity. And a whole new level of sympathy for people who are without it for much longer periods of time. We take for granted how much we depend on it every single day. And I’d like to give a big shout out to those men and women who work on our electrical lines to get them back up and running!! That is such an important job!
Anyway, I wanted to show you some of the light options that I’ve been looking for above the shelves in my office. I shared this pic on Instagram yesterday…
I want three sconces above my shelves to light up my workspace below so that I don’t have to use lamps on my desk. I like my desk as free from clutter as possible.
I ordered these swing arm scones from Wayfair, and they were GORGEOUS!!
But unfortunately, they did not look good above my shelves. The arms were too long for the space, so I had to return them. They are out of stock of this color now, but they do have black and silver still. You can see those HERE.
Wayfair also has this similar sconces that I love!
These sconces from Wayfair are the ones that I am expecting to love, but we will see…
I chose the brushed brass finish with the matte white cased. I’m hoping the come out far enough from the wall to light my desk space well.
I adore these scones from Ballard Designs but I don’t know if I will like them until I see them up on the wall. I’m a visual person, which is why I will order products that I “think” I might like, and if they don’t work out, I just return them. #noharmdone
If neither of these work….well, the search will go on! I have some I found on Amazon that I might try next!
I have a ton of work I needed to get done today, but it looks like I will be entertaining my kiddos!
Fingers crossed they have school tomorrow!
Y’all have a blessed day, okay?!!
