Early Christmas

Tom and I have been desperately needing a couch since we moved into our house.

The couch we were using was one that I bought from IKEA when I lived in Logan. That couch has since moved several times and was quite beat up. Not to mention, meant for one person (OK, maybe two really skinny people.)

Anyway, it was quite uncomfortable and not very accommodating to guests. So when my mom said "What do you want for Christmas?" I thought... A COUCH!

And guess what she bought for us two weeks ago as an early Christmas present?!?

Our AWESOME new sectional!
We love our new addition to the house and looking forward to having guests over now! (Rather than dreading them because people end up sitting on the floor!) 

Thanks Mom and Dad for the WONDERFUL Christmas present! We will enjoy it for years to come!


Presents from Debbie

My future Mother-in-law is the best. She is always thinking of others and is so genuinely sweet. She makes some of the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever had. Bakes delicious pies, cooks amazing meals and is always so welcoming to guests in her home. She is beautiful, smart and fun to be around. 

Last weekend, she took us out to dinner and surprised me with some darling things for our new house.

Fat Cat Creamer & Sugar Set

Fat Cat Salt & Pepper Shakers

Aren't they the CUTEST?!?! I absolutely LOVE them!

She also gave us the most darling throw pillow and blanket for our living room. Which, I STILL need to take pictures of the house now that we are moved in! So hopefully I will get my butt in gear and take pictures of our new home!

Menu Board

This week Mom and I made a super stinkin' cute menu board for my kitchen. We have been trying to be really good about planning meals and packing lunches the last couple of weeks and I hope that this board helps! 

The Scarlet Pimpernel

My grandpa Max gave Tom & I tickets to The Scarlet Pimpernel on Tuesday night. It was a fantastic show. Thanks so much for the tickets Grandpa!

Candy Corn Cookies

Megan, Kenzie and I made the cutest Candy Corn Cookies. Ok... They weren't as cute as the picture on Pinterest, but they were still pretty cute.


Shut the Front Door!

Tom saw this on one of my Pinterest boards and he really wanted to do the same thing to our house.

So we pulled out the cricut last night and got to work.

Even Mufasa wanted to help. 

This was our final product. I think it turned out pretty stinkin' cute! We didn't have as much space to work with as the original, but he liked it, and that's all that matters!

Officially Official

Tom popped the question!!! We are both so excited to get married. Not sure on a date... or any details for that matter! We will keep you all posted as the details unfold.


Better After?

This is a dining room set I purchased at DI for a whopping $35. Pretty good deal, right? It may not look like much, but I had plenty of ideas and paintbrushes. I think it turned out way better after I got my hands on it. 


 Drum Roll please!?!?!


What do you think? Is it Better After?


Tom's New House

Tom is buying his very first house! The house is an older house that has been remodeled. It is absolutely darling! I can't wait to help him move in, maybe he will even let me help decorate! I took some of the pictures from the original listing. I hope the previous owners don't mind that I am posting their darling house on my blog! Can't wait to post pictures of the house after Tom has moved in.  
Isn't it sooooo cute?!?
The backyard is HUGE!

The great room. 

The kitchen.

My mom and I have been shopping at DI and on KSL to find furniture that we can redo. We have been having so much fun with our DIY furniture. Before and After pictures to come!
