Christmas isn’t even here yet and already I’m thinking of January birthday gifts! I just received this quilt in the mail (it only took a week!) for my Mom’s birthday. The three oldest kids in the fam are going in on buying it for her and we just know she’s going to die when she sees it!

Final Stretch

Done and done! Well…the paint part. But it’s a huge step in the right direction. And, even better, the flooring is getting installed tomorrow. Wow, that’s going to change things! I can’t wait!

We’re just about there, only a few more weeks and we’ll have it all finished!

I need to get away. My schedule is so full right now, and I’m not really complaining because it really is fun, but when this week is finished I need to get away.

It’s a good thing my sisters wedding is next week, at least we’ll be staying in a hotel and I won’t have to cook, or make the bed. And I’ll be able to soak in the hot tub in the evenings (hopefully…). Yes, it’s going to be busy getting ready for the wedding, but it’s also a different type of ‘busy’. I can’t wait!!

I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s my sisters wedding coming up so quick (three weeks!!) or maybe I’m just dying for something pretty, but lately I’ve been having the Wedding Fever. Here’s a few more links I am falling in l.o.v.e with:

We’re finally getting to the part of our kitchen expansion that I can be more involved with (will I regret saying that? Most likely…): The decorating!

The walls are drywalled and ready to be mudded and taped, which means that painting will soon be upon us, and then installing the flooring. Since this also means that within a few weeks (cross your fingers) I’ll be hanging curtains and recovering our kitchen chairs, I’m looking for options.

I’ve always loved these colors together, and since I saw it in a couple weddings on the Style Me Pretty Blog, I’ve been wanting to incorporate the colors into my home. If I can’t get married again, why not use in the home decor? Haha!

I’m going to be talking with my interior design friend to see if these fabrics would look good with the wall color I’ve picked out, and what she thinks about having them all together. Maybe a bit much? What are your thoughts?

I’m in a wedding mood today. A pretty mood. A “I want to be wearing a dress” mood.

And it’s Friday. Thank God.

Hubby has thoughtfully designed a inset bookshelf in my kitchen, right above the small desk that will hold the phone and laptop. And, as fluke has it, a potlight is right above the shelf to add a homey and comfy glow. Love it!

I was thinking today, it would be cool to do some texture on the wall behind the desk and something creative with the inset shelf, to make it even more of a feature.

And somehow I found this link to doing wall stencils! I’m really loving on the look in the first video there. I think that might be the one.

And some cool brackets to finish off the shelf? Yep, I’m really loving this idea! I’m brilliant…

The dresses came in!!!

They’re two weeks early, which is fantastic! We couldnt’ believe it…And they fit perfectly, the quality is amazing. They are exactly what we thought they would be, which is really saying something when you’re ordering them from a web site and really have no idea what you’re getting.

But we’re so happy they’re in and that worry is off of our shoulders!

Don’t mind the green color in this photo, I think the olive background made it look “off”, but they’re really a deep forest green.

I highly recommend buying from Lightinthebox.com. Highly.

Oh, and yes, they’re a bit long, but we’ll be getting them hemmed. We ordered them with more length just in case…longer is better than shorter!
