A good & a Bad!

The good:
I had my first real live paid decorating consulation yesterday with my first real live paying client (a sweet friend from church)! 

I was a little nervous, because when I am decorating my own house, I have so much time to think about how I want things to be.  I was nervous I wouldn't be able to come up with ideas and solutions on the spot for someone else's house.  But I DID have ideas, and solutions.  It was SO FUN!  We worked on her living room first, and made a few small, but impactful changes.  Next we worked on her bedroom and COMPLETELY rearranged it in about 20 minutes.  It was a transformation.  We've still got lots to do in there.  I'm having a blast (and I think maybe she is too!).
Thanks, friend, for trusting me with your home!  Maybe she'll let me blog about the results!

The Bad:
Okay, maybe it's not THAT bad, but I had to take BeiBei to the groomer today to get a summer cut.  I am so sad about having to cut off her adorable shagginess!  We tried to resist it, but as June has come into full swing, it's clear that she is just too hot.  I asked for a puppy cut (which means just a little shorter all over, but NOT SHAVED).  I hope they do what I asked!  I anxious/scared to see how my precious pup will look when I pick her up.

*I have also read on sites like this one that it's best not to shave your goldendoodle down to less than a 2" coat, because their skin is very sensitive to sunburn, and their coats help to insulate them from the heat.

I'm crossing my fingers.  I'll keep you posted!

  1. We have to do that to our miniature goldendoodle. My husband takes him to the groomers while I'm at work and when I come home our shaved dog comes jumping all over me and scares the hell out of me. He looks like a little rat. But he looks more puppish than most goldendoodles, and it actually looks very good on him
