Home Office Update

It’s been awhile since I’ve updated you on my office… but, that is because … dun dun dun… it is finally done (enough) and I’m ready to just show you how things turned out! After this weekend, there will be no more sneak peeks and teasers! I’M JUMPING UP AND DOWN FOR JOY! I LOVE it and I hope you’ll see how it suits me!

I know it is summer and all and you are probably all out by the pool or heading to Haven (the blogging conference, which I am not going to and I know I’m going to be feeling all sorry for myself that I didn’t go because I know everyone will have a fabulous time. Woe is me.) but hopefully SOME OF YOU will be around next week to share my joy over my office because Tuesday is my reveal day! Yay!

I’ve got lots of big news on my upcoming house projects too, so starting on Monday I’m going to be laying out the plans for the rooms and let you follow the transformation taking place all over my house this summer! Pretty exciting, I keep pinching myself!

Contractors have been coming to measure and plan so I know this is REALLY happening! Painters are coming later next week. So yeah, I’d say this summer is going to be quite eventful around my house! I still have to pick out some paint colors so I better get off the computer.

So are you going to be at Haven? Am I the only one not going?


  1. Jen

    I’m not going either, so I’m excited to see your office reveal, and all of your revealed home plans! I’m sure your office looks fabulous, can’t wait to see it : ) have a fabulous day!

    • Melissa

      Thank you Jen! :-)

  2. Aili

    So excited to see your reveal! I can’t tell you how refreshing it is to come and visit your blog and feel Christ’s love pouring out. You manage to keep things in perspective while still having so much fun with design. Thanks for that!

    • Melissa

      Aw thank you for that sweet encouragement, Aili!! Blessings to you today!

    I should be going…it is only 2 hours away…darn it! BUT I will take consolation that I can follow along with you next week. Can’t wait for your reveal! Isn’t it great when rooms turn out like you want them to!

    • Melissa

      Ok good, at least some of us can hang out and commiserate …


  4. Maria

    I can’t wait to see your office reveal and follow along with the plans that you have for your home! So exciting! :-) Have a blessed Sunday!

    • Melissa

      You too Maria!

    NO Haven for me…but I think teaching VBS is pretty close right?
    Pray for me, I’m snack duty…and toddler food fights are almost guaranteed. HA!

    I’m really excited to hear about your big house plans and see your shiny, new office!!

    • Melissa

      Oh my gosh, Brooke, you are a SAINT!!!!

  6. Vidya Sudarsan

    I will be back here looking for your office reveal :) can’t wait!

  7. Jojo

    Not going to Haven and I can’t wait to see the reveal!!

  8. Sofia - WinterStays

    What an exciting summer, can’t wait for the day when I get to design a home for myself too.

  9. Heidi

    Ooo, can’t wait to see — mine has been a work in progress for a year, but I’m getting close! I’ll be at Haven (a nervous, excited wreck!) and look forward to sharing all about it! Wish you were going, Melissa!

    You’re inspiring me to stop procrastinating and finish cleaning out that big file drawer in the old oak cabinet in my office. The goal is that all my journals are stored in one place. Good-bye odds and ends of collected stuff ripped out of magazines and newspapers and jammed into folders and never looked at. Hello – ONE place for those books that chronicle my life!

  11. Kelly Reber

    Can’t wait to see your office tomorrow…. and all the other plans. I am very new to blogging and I am wishing I went to Haven! Blog Conferences sound like crazy good times…

  12. Garden, Home and Party

    How fun. I can’t wait to see your office and to hear all of your plans for your home this summer.
    I’ve never been to a blogger conference but I’m sure they are loads of fun.

  13. {darlene}

    super excited about your office.
    just remember, all of us who are going to Haven are getting NOTHING done around our houses!! haha!
    We WILL miss you, and it seriously will not be the same without you! virtual hug.

    Haven is in my backyard and I didn’t know about it till last week, and of course they sold out! So I am feeling sorry for myself too! Being a mama…..I can only go to things local, so I am really bummed, but maybe next year! Can’t wait to see your office!!

  15. Kim Paddleford

    I will be here in lovely Oklahoma anxiously awaiting your reveal! Exciting!

  16. how2home

    Excited to see your reveal!! Can’t wait!

    Hi Meg,

    I am really excited to see your reveal. By coincidence, I not only updated my website, I updated my office. My reveal is going to be on Friday. Hopefully you tune in.

  18. Diane

    Contractors!!!!! Gosh girl, you are serious!! I’m just catching this a week late. Now things are starting to make sense. You are a whirlwind of creative activity. Looking forward to every little detail. And wishing I, too, could have traveled to Haven. Maybe some day.
