Planning Time!

Just a few inspirational boards that I've been using for reference the last couple months!  Remember how much I love using Paint to plan?

Can't wait to show you the afters!

PS- Tim and I finally decided on an actual carpet choice last night!  Can't wait to actually get it ordered this week!!!!

Summer Lovin, Had Me a Blast

It's only mid-June and it already feels like summer's almost over!  I hope it's just beginning!

We kicked off summer on memorial day weekend by driving up to Vancouver, BC to see our favorite band, Mumford and Sons! They seriously put on the best concerts! 
 It was totally worth the freaking NINE hours of drive time we put in, thanks to this bridge collapsing the day before, and there only being ONE boarder guard on the way back into the US. 

 Then the next morning we hopped out of bed and made the two hour drive in the other direction to go camping at Lake Cushman! 

....Unfortunately, the lake didn't get the memo about it being summer and we spent only one night huddle under tarps in the pouring rain before packing up camp and heading home the next day!

Mia had lots of fun trying to escape into the woods, getting soaking wet, jumping on big dogs, and throwing up from the gallons of grass she ate!
At the end of June, we packed our bags and ran away to NYC for the weekend! 
As what always seems to happen, we ran into a couple old friends and had fun running all over the city in the intense heat and humidity!! 

On 7/11 we skipped the free Slurpees and celebrated our 4 year anniversary! 
And then there's all the days in between:

Oh yeah, and Mia got her first haircut!  From furball to fancy fella (girl fella):
How are your summers going?


Well the good news is that I have 90% of my condo finished to where I like it!  The bad news is, I took pictures of about 3% of all the redesigns I've kept myself busy with over the last two months.  Mostly because I can't stand looking at my carpet long enough to take a picture, and partly because I was trying to keep busy and not think of certain events.  

But the bestest news....

We're officially planning on having new carpet installed in two and a half weeks!  Ahh!  I'm so excited to finally get this giant to do off our list!  I can't wait to start sharing pictures of our totally made over home!

In the meantime, here are a couple preview pics!



 I can't WAIT to come back with some pictures without ugly carpet in the background!
