Fiddle Leaf Fig Tree!

I will be the first to admit that I do not have a green thumb by any means. However, I absolutely love plants and flowers. I grew up where my dad planted anything and everything in our yard. I spend a many of afternoons helping him spread the soil over the newly planted flowers and adding on new flower beds to the endlessly growing yard. When I lived in the loft I had may run through of a few potted plants that just didn't make it. So I gave up for awhile and just bought real flowers to last a few weeks or stuck with the reliable fake plants

Decisions Decisions...

As I have most of the items checked off the list for the front guest room: painted walls (and later ceiling), furniture, and new bedding...all check! Now is the fun part adding the decorative accents like art and lights. However, as much as this is the fun part it can also be overwhelming as well. There are sooo many pieces of art to choose from and I can get torn into what direction I want to go with. So I have been letting the room sit the way it is and get used to the layout and new colors and keeping my eye out on those few new pieces of art that will turn the room into a WOW room.

Day Dreaming of a White Kitchen

Well life has been pretty busy lately and so I haven't got to do any of the additional decorating in the front guest bedroom and the room has pretty much stayed the same since the last update. However, I did order a new duvet and pillow covers so I will fix up the bed this weekend. I also ordered a light for the hallway and as soon as that bad boy comes in I plan to have it installed and take the final hallway pictures I have been promising y'all. While I wait for the finishing touches I can't help but daydream about the other projects I want to do to the house. 

The main room, which I have talked poor Amos's ear off, is the kitchen redo. Our kitchen isn't bad, the cabinets are really nice and I love the white so I wouldn't change the exterior. The bottom cabinets would be nice if they had drawer inserts so it made getting kitchen supplies out easier and make it more storage friendly. The big change I would make is converting the peninsula into an island and making it all counter height instead of bar height. I would also want to add additional storage on the backside of the island. Then I would want to replace the backsplash and countertops with something more in my color palette. A kitchen redo wouldn't be complete without adding a mini wine fridge. So I guess while I am getting other rooms together I will share some of my inspiration photos for the kitchen and continue to daydream until at least after the wedding before we can start our kitchen renovation.

A New Blog Subject - Books!

Hey y'all! I had a really cool thing happen recently that I just had to share. As most of you have gathered based off of our massive book collection, you can see photos here, I loveeeeee reading. So when I got home after a nice weekend in Austin there in the mail was a book that was a prelease from one of my favorite authors, Sarah Addison Allen.  I don't really know how this happened except that I follow her on Goodreads and I have read all of her books and just absolutely love all of them. If you are a avid reader or want to read more then I suggest this website. It is a great way to find recommendations based off your taste, it is like what Netflix is for movies, Goodreads is for books. You can even follow your favorite authors and friends and see what they are reading and suggest.
