color crush

I LOVE neutrals.  Always have,always will.  I can thank my mama for that.

There is no doubt my house will be one neutral canvas. 
Just like my closet, my wedding, and about everything else I put my touch on...

BUUT in all the neutral wonderfulness I love hints of colors here and there.

With the house hunt coming to an end I am letting my mind run a little wild with possibilities.
(inspection today, pleeeease PRAY it goes smoothly and that N High St will be our new home)

And while this picture sums up basically everything about my style and fave colors...

these are some color combos I'm crushing on
all via pinterest

I am so excited to share my "inspiration" pieces for each room!  But I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch! Speaking of chickens.......we'll be getting some of those too!

(and bees, there will def be bees! duh)

I'm loving that we're one step closer to owning a home.

I'm loving our wedding is only 45 days away. 

I'm loving that I get to spend a weekend with this ginger
and all of our best friends, in our favorite Texas town.

I'm loving the way things are going!

I sure hope you're

must learn

You know what I don't know how to do?

Well that list is quite lengthy...

but what I am referring to right now is blog design.

and photoshop.

and photography.

but really just blog design at this exact moment.

How on earth do you make your blog cute?

I gave it an old college try and this is what I got goin...

I'm not even going to share with you how long this took. It's laughable. Believe me. 

who wants to do this thing the right way? for free.
i'll pay you in cute daily pics of my dog. or choc chip cookies. or miller lite.

everything and nothing

What in the world have I been doing? Everything and nothing at all it seems.

So much to update on.  Fun weekends, wedding plans and details, house news, babies, friends, family, life in general....and it's all coming...soon.

For now though you most certainly should follow me on instagram.  

I just discovered this little gem and I LOVE it.  Seriously, I get annoyed more of my friends aren't constantly posting pics!  You can follow me here.

All the going-ons deserve a post of it's own and that they will get but for now this is the number one thorn in my side point of interest.

A house.  This house.

We have been negotiating a deal on this beaut for almost 2 weeks now (I know, sounds insane to me too, small town biz I guess) and we are so, so close but after having 2 other houses fall through the cracks I am refusing to get excited about this one.

alright, I may already have it mentally decorated from wall to wall, but still not letting those ideas go to my head until we sign

As soon as this is done, I can relax and actually get ready for our new life. 

Now that everyone is back to work and summer is officially coming to a close, I am going to make it my job to cross things off my to-do list, and believe me, tackling that to-do list is a full time job in itself. 

Our hope is that by Friday we will have a deal on this house and will get to celebrate with best friends in RP,TX this weekend! And I feel confident saying that the second that happens I will be back in full "work" swing.  But, let's not hold our breath!

I'll leave you with 2 of the 300 reasons why I love the house above....

a HUGE closet
which is next to impossible to find in a house built in the 1930s

and this pretty little pinterest ready bathroom!

please, please, pleeeeease be mine soon!
