I knew it was time for a spring home tour when we’ve had enough rain that our poor old home’s foundation has to be checked AGAIN. #homeownerproblems
Usually I feel a little guilty constantly posting home decor! I’m not sure what it is, I mean I post outfits daily, but something about home decor makes me feel so ridiculous.
I just imagine people thinking, “Oh Katey, how riveting. You added a new couch pillow.”
But at least I can poke fun at myself and the things I like to do?! I just get so excited about rearranging. I’m always evolving, so why shouldn’t my home?!
But this time, there is no shame in my game. Inspired By This asked to feature my home and so I thought, “TO HOMEGOODS WE GO! TO HOMEGOODS WE GO!”
I was honored to be selected and this was such a fun shoot as I added in some spring color. You can see the feature and interview here!
The other reason I don’t feel guilty about this shoot? The entire time we were shooting I was having a terrible allergic reaction to a medication. I ended up being severely allergic to an antibiotic I was taking and was in the ER all night with a 104 fever.
The whole time Carmen and I were shooting I kept thinking, “I’ve got such a bad headache. Maybe I’m hungry.” I kept snacking and drinking coffee to try and curb it. Then when Paul got off work I told him I thought it was a migraine so I needed to get greasy pizza and a coke. I was so sick all night and every hour he kept asking to take me to the hospital. I would say, “Babe, I think it’s a migraine. If I eat something in the morning I’ll be fine.” After my fever wouldn’t break he took me. They wanted to do a spinal tap and he goes, “Seriously? You did a home tour during this and thought you were just hungry?”
I mean, yeah….?
All in all, thankfully it was just an allergic reaction and I’ll never take that medicine again. But looking back it’s [now] a funny story and I’ll never forget the day we photographed this!
Thank you so much for reading and as always let me know if you have any questions!
