I think we decided to get a Golden Retriever puppy instead of an Australian Shepherd. Any name suggestions?

We move in to the rental house in the beginning of July. Don't get me wrong-I'm excited, but I think I'm going to have a really hard time having an "incomplete" house for awhile. I need to get to a place where I am content to shut doors leading to unfurnished bedrooms. I wish I didn't care, but I love design so much! I'm the kind of girl that would rather have an awesome couch than diamonds around my neck. Since money is an object, I resort to the blog-world of design... these are some inspiring pictures that make me excited for "someday"...

*I have kept these pictures in a folder on my computer for quite some time, so unfortunately I do not have photo credits. I need to better at that!

The Brothers Bloom

Saturday, May 23, 2009

Andrew and I went on a date last night (with our friend Joe), and saw The Brothers Bloom. Andrew has been anticipating this film for what seems like an eternity! I would give it two thumbs up--it was excellent! Go see the trailer.

*Also, people occasionally comment that Andrew looks like Mark Ruffalo. I guess I can see it--if i squint :)

A Big Kid

My husband was "helping" Ava and Cambrea build a sand castle, but from the looks of this picture, he was thoroughly enjoying himself. I love him

Megan's Grad. Party

My little sister is graduating on Thursday! Holy cow- I still think of her as a seven year old for some reason. We had her graduation party on Sunday, and I was feeling rather ambitious. I found cute "graduation cap" lollipops at Bakerella, and decided to give them a try. These are a couple pictures of the process...

And this is how they turned out!

I also made this display board of Megan's pictures growing up. My family always jokes that it looks like a memorial, or a shrine at the least.

I love my sister, and am super proud of her :)

I love J.Crew's "crewcuts." You can now view the catalog online

If they made these clothes in my size, I would buy them in a second.

Meet our new car!

Monday, May 4, 2009

After three long months of looking, and one atrocious month of being a one-car family, we finally bought a car! It's not the Xterra we were looking for (not even close), but it's great for us. It is ironic that we replaced Andrew's 1995 Honda Civic with this 06 Civic. We are really thankful to have reliable transportation!
