Beautiful Bedroom...

Suzie over at Decor Pad has a stunning bedroom. I just had to post this beautiful room. I love everything about it. The art panels as a headboard, the mirrored doors and the white linens with those beautiful bolster pillows. So chic! :)

Get Away...

Next week we are taking the kids on a vacation to Wolf Lodge in Grapevine Texas! Let me just tell you how very excited I am. Funny how your idea of fun changes when you have kids! The thought of being with my family and watching the kiddos splash and have a blast all day long sounds great! Just thought I might share a video just in case any of you are looking for a fun place to take the kids this summer or any time for that matter. They have several location across the country.

Counting Down!

A Little Video Fun...

I had a little fun playing with this video site. Here are a few slides of some of the changes we have made to the house. You will want to scroll down and pause the music below before starting the video.

Warm Welcome...

Lovely Entrances... 

Love the painted mat on this one, along with everything else.

Happy Places...

Well the garage sale went okay, just incase you were wondering. I still have a few things to get rid of. But the larger part of stuff is gone. Yay! So I plan to get the Ikea chairs I have been coveting. And we are making out way to Texas a week from Wednesday. I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to some time off. That is a post for another day.

So onto a much prettier topic. Gorgeous inspiration pics.

Take a look at this bathroom. I may never come out if this were my space. So chic. The lovely dark wood combined with the crisp clean white. Swoon!

Freckles Chick, this pic so reminds me of your office inspiration pic.

Working On Making A Mess...

So today I felt like I did a lot and really got no where. How does that happen? I am, against my better judgement have a garage sale this weekend. I RREEEEEAALLLY don't want to. But I have all of these large things and baby things that I just have to. Plus, bonus...I will have made money. WAHHOO. So I spent most of the day pricing things and making a big ole mess. Then staring blankly at my living room with no real ideas thus far of where I want to go with it. Some areas I have down and others I am getting decorators block. Ever happen to you? How annoying. Anyhoo, then I came across the prettiest picture. And it made me feel all spring and relaxed. Thank goodness for inspiration therapy...

Refreshed Dining Room...

I thought I might show a photo of what our dining room looked like when we bought our house 5 years ago. Scary huh! It has had a few looks since then...

This chocolate brown I really loved and was almost sad to see it go. But I was ready for a change. This table I bought when I was pregnant with Rhett. Didn't really plan on having twins and out growing it. That's what I get for trying to plan everything. So that table is going on Craig's list soon. (any pointers?) 
Well here she is. I can't tell you how much the lighter, brighter color really does make the space feel so much bigger. Like a breath of fresh air to walk into this room. Yay, to be able to all fit at the table together and get rid of the highchairs. I am still planning to purchase those chairs at Ikea for the ends of the table. We are making the trip in May.

{Another Angle}
I can't tell you how excited I was to find these frames at Gordman's. They were perfect and better yet dirt cheap! And finally I got to put some of the pictures I have been taking around down in proper frames. Sure makes them look good. (If I do say so myself)
These curtains my friend Chris got for her house and the more I thought about them the more I had to have some for myself. Perfect for the look I was going for in this room. Not to mention they were $15 for the pair.
This room certainly has come a long way from what it started out as 5 years ago. Thanks for looking!

Sneak Peek...

Why do I heart Target? Why fabulous find after fabulous find of course! I scored the cutest bag on Monday! Nope I don't feel guilty. It's okay to do something for me every now and then. I am feeling fresh and springy ( a word?)!

Just a little sneak peek at what's going on in the dining room. Hope to have finished pics for you in a day or so. Remember those gallery photos in a previous post.
I usually like the chunkier black frames, but fell in love with the look of those skinny black frame and the large white mats. So the hunt was on. I thought surely Hobby Lobby would have something. Nope. Target? They had the chunkier frames with the white mat. Beautiful, but not what I was looking for in this particular instance. Next onto a discount everything store here in town. Just as I was about to give up (not to mention the kids were being totally embarrassing), I found the perfect frames for only $6.99! I'll take them! YAY!

Spring cleaning...

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. We had a quiet weekend at the house hunting easter eggs and eating goodies. I did get quite a bit accomplished. I painted the living room and dining room Friday night. So I am getting closer to having the two rooms spruced up. It really is a good spring clean type of feeling having fresh paint on the walls. I hope to have some pics of the dining room up in a few days. I am still putting the rest of my ideas together to finish up on the living room. It's all coming together nicely. Enjoy these photos, they were a google find. Just makes me feel like spring has sprung!

Fab Finds...

Paper propensity. Got to love Etsy and since  it has been a few days since I had done a post like this, I thought I must share these beautiful cards I found. Aren't they gorgeous! Darn I am getting low on the stock pile of cards I have. These are so coming home with me. 
{found at PixeLimPress}

I am a sucker for a pretty pillow and I found tons of fabulous styles over at 

OH, and one random note, I got my chalkboard up tonight. So pictures to come soon.

The Hunt Is On...

I am on the hunt for the perfect white summer dress. I haven't found much that strikes me. Although this lil frock I am loving. It is definitely in the running. And on sale, yay!

So you might have noticed that this isn't white, yeah... just caught my eye. Sooo my 
style. I am going to keep perusing the net and see if I can't come up with something white. Wish me luck.

Some warm weather, please...

I am craving some warm weather and to be outside! This place looks like the best place to soak up some much needed sun and relax.


This has got to be the most soothing serene color. What a beautiful space.

Design Inspiration...

Love the color of the wall, the desk, and the print!
Can I get a Swoon!


These number plates are tugging at me a bit as an option for above the cabinets in the kitchen.

Wall Paper...

I'm not sure that I could actually be committed to wall paper, (so much work to take down when I'm ready to change) but I sure 
LOVE this combination of wall paper and console table. So

I love these photo galleries. I am thinking of doing this with some of the photos I have been taking lately. I especially love this first pic with the slim black frame and all the white matting.
Are you into the gallery look?
