Entry Way and Boys

Coming to you on a Friday night and I m absolutely exhausted from this week! A good exhausted but my bed is still singing me. Probably heading there next, I swear sometimes I see Ace shake his head about how tired I am when I get home at night. My apartment has no designated entry, when you walk in my front door it just opens into the family room and I wanted to make a special spot for an entry.


Excuse the bad pic. After I painted my apartment last year, I just felt like the entry wall just blended in with everything else. So the way I cured this was painting stripes! I used Benjamin Moore’s Sea Haze and Grey Owl. I got a laser level at Lowe’s for $15 and painted them in an evening! Not as hard as I thought it would be but I have textured walls so straights lines were a lot more difficult to achieve.


The mirror is from Kohl’s that I painted and distressed and you can see from the above picture that this wall is in between two doors. One to the entry closet and the other is the door to the outside. So the shelf, that my grandfather installed had to be a little tiny, I think it is so cute though! After dressing up this area and staining the shelf, I loved the finish product. I have a designated entry and a place to set my keys!


On a personal note, I m turning 26 next week and I’m really nervous. I didn’t set any rules for myself as to the timeline to my life like some other girls do but with that being said, I m not where I thought I would be by the time I was 26, professionally or personally. Everyone tells me, your still a baby! But to me, all I keep telling myself is “you are not mid-twenties anymore, you are late twenties! Ahhhhhh!!” I m trying to embrace this birthday with happiness and accept where I am at right now.



In college I had a very toxic/awful relationship, and that relationship has left me with some really bad relationship demons that come up whenever I met a new guy, especially when I like the guy. Usually I over do it and the relationship is over within the week it started. Said issue just happened again to me recently and I don’t even blame the guy! I m just so afraid to have the guy drive, so to speak, because the last time I let the guy drive the relationship he led me into becoming a empty shell in the corner of a room. So to protect myself, I tend to drive the relationship and how I drive is at 90mph an hour on a tiny street that has a dead end, where as if I let the guy drive, it might be a nice slow drive with a nice light at the end of the road, but I don’t trust it. It’s a horrible habit that has come from my bad relationship and continues to affect my future relationships. I m struggling to overcome it, but hope that one day the right guy can understand why I have these demons and though, annoyed at times will help me through the horrible hump I have. I can only hope god has created that man for me and he is out there for. This recent situation is especially a little hard for me because I had a crush on this guy since 2006 and after all this time I grew up the courage to reach out to him and in true Kelsi Fashion it was over in a week, I’m so nervous of letting someone else drive.

But for now I m thinking about this 26th Birthday and make it a happy one!
