It's about time...

...for me to show you our new place right? Gah it feels like it's been FOREVER since I've done anything on here. I miss you guys! I *think* I'm ready to get back into the swing of things...

So here it is. Our new place!

When you first walk in you enter the dining room. Nothing fancy.

View from the door into my new office area... I LOVE all the natural light that this apartment offers!

We sold our old couches... Come on who wants to move two couches up to the second story? Not I said the fly! When things calm down a bit and we get our cash flow situated again we'll look into purchasing new ones. For now we use the vintage love seat.

The kitchen is my absolute FAVORITE room in the house! It's HUGE! There is a TON of cabinet storage here, which is great and hard to come by in most apartments! Plus it's decorated with a bunch of vintage goodies!


Want to know a secret? The "shower curtain" isn't really meant for a shower... it's two window curtains!

Our bathroom is painted the same color as the kitchen, which is a golden butter color. Didn't think I was going to like it at first but it's really growing on me!

So there it is... well minus the bedroom anyways. Because let's face it... The bedroom is usually the LAST room you complete right? Anywho... Later this week I'll show you all the nity gritty, and some Pinterest ideas that I've utilized in the new place!

I'll be linking up to some of THESE awesome parties!

Another Week...

I'm NOT excited to say that our move has been postponed a week...{It is actually working out for the best since we just had our yard sale this past Friday... But I'm ready to move!}
That means another week of not blogging... And I'm dying to! There are so many great blogs out there posting their fun fall decor and I can't wait to get started!
I have about a million different ideas floating around in my head for projects to share. On top of that my projects are now going to be "take away designs" as Momma Hen likes to call them! Plus I'll be working on organizing tips and tricks... I know if my brother "Tom" saw that he would laugh. But really, one of the whole reasons we're moving is to change and better ourselves. So why not start at home?

On another note... I've had this song stuck in my head ALL WEEKEND LONG! I can't listen to it enough!

LOVE me some APC!

I'll be linking up to some of *these* rockin' parties!

Happy Fall Y'all!

 Happy Fall Y'all!

Sadly I'm not working on any fall decorating quite yet. Mainly because all of my decor is neatly packed up in moving boxes and storage tubs.

 Lordy lordy! I can't wait to get this move over with so that I can unpack, re-decorate, and get to crafting again! Even the hubs said last night, "Don't you have anything to be working on?"

Ugh yea babe I do... Packing up this house! What are YOU doing?!?!

Anywho... How about some "Pinspiration" from my Autumn board on Pinterest?!

Love the acorns and candles!

*Dreaming of monogrammed Pumpkins and burlap!*

Soft lighting, galvanized buckets, branches, and pumpkins. What's not to love?

How's your fall decorating going? Are you lucky enough to link up over at Laya and Kevin's?

 So you know how I told you HERE that there's big changes coming? HERE I told you the hubs and I are going through a bunch of our stuff. Last night hubs and I decided to go through our storage boxes...

G says that I'm not "sacrificing" enough for our move, he says I'm not getting rid of enough stuff. He has no idea, I guess he can't see all of the BIG BLACK TRASH BAGS FULL of TRASH throughout the house... All filled with stuff that I'm sacrificing! I guess he can't see the boxes and boxes of stuff for our garage sale either... But now he's just being CRAZY!

Last night he pulled out 4 storage tubs of ,yes, my stuff. My grade school memorabilia that my mom has collected for me over the years. Cards and coloring books, school pictures and grades for each year, and even some old homework and assignments. He told me to get rid of my stuff...

"The Scary House"
and the REALLY scary cat? Haha

I learned how drugs can be harmful at a very young age.

Even as a youngster I knew that "interior design" barbie must match her surroundings...

Virtual high five to the person who can find me in my second grade class photo!

How can he think that I'm going to get rid of this stuff?!?!? It's memories! 13 years of school memories folks... you can't replace this stuff... So what do I do? Get a REALLY BIG box and put 4 storage tubs of stuff into 1 box... That's ingenuity!

Come PARTY with me!

$5 Fall Wreath {From Pinterest to Life}

How about some "pinspiration"!?!

Mom and I both had this wreath pinned on our Pinterest Boards!

So we decided to re-create ours for fall.

We found these grapevine wreaths at Wal-Mart for around $3.

I picked up some fall foliage from Michael's for half off. (Around 50cents a stem)
We gathered our stems and wrapped them in twine.

Figured out our placement and hot glued them down.
Then we added some tulle and created a bow, leaving enough tulle at the end of the bow to wrap around the entire wreath.

Hung it up on the door and we're good to go!
For around $5 each we have a cute fall wreath!

I'll be linking up HERE!

P.S. I fixed the links on the right side so you should be able to snoop around now!
P.S.S. Who knows how to center your blog header?!?!

Meanwhile this handsome devil and I are headed to Big D! To put forth in motion some of those...
