A few updates... and guess what arrived last week..... AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

I'm a little bit excited.
I got the pillow in the middle on my doorstep today... so my bed was all dressed and ready for it's photo-shoot. Uhhh... I know we have an abnormally barren, large room, so pay no attention to the corners that show what it looks like beside that ONE piece of magic.

Better yet, pay close attention... just so you'll believe me...

I know. The rest of the room needs a little catching up. That tv's on the fritz... so I'm thinking we'll need a little upgrade soon (and by little I mean little... that beast makes me so nervous. What if it fell over???) We got a cheap but simple/modern ikea dresser a while back that we need to set up that will match the dark wood of the bed better... so that will be our first step. hhhhhhhhh (sometimes I just really want to spell out a sigh.. )... oh I can't tell you how much I love walking into my room right now... The closest thing we've had to a real bed was this twin head/foot board that I bought for $10 at a garage sale when we first got married and I'd hang from the wall with nails side by side to form ONE king headboard. It started brown, and got painted white AND black over it's lifetime with us. I'm happy to retire it.

Moving on: Here's a few from yesterday when my dad and Marybeth came over for dinner for a little late Father's Day celebration. Have I mentioned how much I love that they live RIGHT here in my town??? (pretty much.) There's really something to living near family. Like you've almost got a little root right where you live. It just feels good, you know?


ooh and one more thing. My friend, Shalaine's baby shower. Had it on Saturday morning at my house-- brunch... with quiche (Costco), homemade rolls, salad and yogurt parfaits. My friend Brooke, who bakes for a restaurant, baked me her DELICIOUS coconut cake for the occasion. Yum.

I know... and she's like 8 months pregnant. Darling right? You should see her little boy. I can't WAIT to see her little girl.


and WHAT would I do without little friends right now? Without preschool and with temps so hot, we can't play outside... having friends over to play is CRUCIAL. And there's something especially cute about darling little girls in a bunch. Oh and did I mention... Mia and Kail aren't moving after all? Hooray!

That's all for now. Oh and saw Sister's Keeper tonight... I liked it. Almost an entirely different story than the book, but still a great movie.

Wow, I have to echo your huge sigh. that is REALLY a beautiful bed. congrats, I'd say you waited long enough to deserve this beauty for sure.

and of course I loved the rest of the room too, because it means you're like the rest of us. so thanks for that too.

I love pictures inside your house..it's a little like sitting in your living room...something I'd really like to do someday.

you're great!
