Today I made a list.  I even had a schedule to keep.  Things were going oh-so-well until Daniel returned from class.  Then he asked me to watch Food, Inc with him…oh how saddened I became!  I had to keep myself preoccupied to prevent a wave of emotion from striking.  I’m gettin’ the vapors!  [haha!]  But seriously, if I wasn’t already a vegetarian, I would have turned!
I took some photographs of the house today because I changed some things around and am really happy about it ๐Ÿ™‚  [it was also on my list! haha]
Click for enlargements!
The kitchen will be the last room to paint…and believe me, I am taking my time.  I’ve never taken down wallpaper and am not too excited to do so!  So white kitchen for a few more months ๐Ÿ™‚  You can’t really tell, but under that light fixture and passed the counter, you can see the living room.

This is the living room, and my view from the couch on the days that I decide vegging is my only option ๐Ÿ™‚

To the right of my vegg station, Buster is staring longingly out the window ๐Ÿ™‚

I couldn’t find a bigger “mantel,” but I kinda like the white shelf.  The white frame on the fireplace is going in the gap between the window and the shelf/mirror…I’m waiting on a photograph of Daniel’s nephew.  It will be adorable ๐Ÿ™‚

I finally put stuff up on my “inspiration board” – honestly, I just like hanging pictures up.  My inspirational magazines are on a shelf.  I love keeping my mags intact! ๐Ÿ™‚

some close ups…

Daniel and his dad took care of the closing process on our home.  I was in Miami, Fl for the holidays visiting my family.  When I came back Daniel had made me the card below: “Our Home!!  For Longer than a Year!”  [We used to move once a year…]  He also attached the pen with which he signed the contract ๐Ÿ™‚

The polaroid right below the card is actually the front of the house [and my bike! woot!]
Man, we haven’t photoboothed in years!  All of those photos were taken within the first year of our relationship.  This was all about 4 years ago!  CRAZY.

Across from my lovey dovey board…
I purchased my 1959 Singer a couple months ago and only recently [since “finishing” the house] have started using it.  Slowly but surely I am getting the feel for my new/old machine ๐Ÿ™‚

Lastly, also seen firstly, the bedroom, which is incomplete…my previous homes were a bit smaller than this one, so I kinda used up all my decor in the other rooms!  I have some sweet ideas for the bedroom, but it’s a bit of a project.
If you look into the mirror you can see my Stella im Hultberg prints that I adore.  I also have a Stella Ipod skin. haha


This television was in the guest room…but after Osa chewed the cable off my old tv set, we swapped ๐Ÿ™‚
and of course…
YAWN.  Okay dear friends, it is bedtime.  I want you to know that I am going to have a giveaway quite soon.  If you have any opinions as to what items you’d like to see, feel free to share ๐Ÿ™‚  I am easily persuaded…haha
I leave you with my cutest purchase of the day: an itty bitty camera [with itty bitty Easter slides that rotate when you click!].
