A silly question answered.

You know those silly questions that you get asked every now and then...the ones that start like this: If you had an unlimited supply of money what would you do with it? Well, today I know exactly what I would *selfishly* do with it. I would use it to redecorate my home.

Every Spring I get like this. The decorating bug bites hard and I find it difficult not to drool over decorating websites, magazines and shows...and don't even get me started on how hard it is to steer my butt over to the diaper aisle rather then the home decor area at the store.

I love everything about decorating. I love decorating my face (makeup) and nails, my body (clothes and shoes), my home, even my food (garnishing, etc.). It's something that I can start and finish and see the final result. I've always been like that. One of my favorite channels to watch on TV growing up was HGTV - I loved watching people start with an ugly room and watch it transform into a gorgeously decorated piece of art. Fashion and human makeover shows came in at close second. ;)

I seriously can't wait to own a house where I can paint the walls and hopefully have more space to make it our very own. I'm looking forward to making Simon's room special and fun and making our room romantic and comfy. I just wish it didn't cost so darn much. I guess I'll just have to get creative with my spending; go garage saleing/thrift store shopping and make friends with criagslist. But oh it would be so much easier and way more fun to go on

  1. Hello! I love your blog design (esp. the owl) - so I couldn't help but follow your blog. =)

    I get bit by the "decor bug" each spring as well. Target is my worst nemesis!

We are His portion and He is our prize...

I've had this song in my head for a few days now. I love Kim Walkers voice and the passion that she portrays in this song. McMillan did a wonderful job in writing this song, the lyrics are so profound and encouraging and...different (the "sloppy wet kiss" part makes me smile). I especially love the first part of this song...

He is jealous for me,
Loves like a hurricane, I am a tree,
Bending beneath the weight of his wind and mercy.
When all of a sudden,
I am unaware of these afflictions eclipsed by glory,
And I realize just how beautiful You are,
And how great Your affections are for me.

And oh, how He loves us so,
Oh how He loves us,
How He loves us all

Yeah, He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves us,
Whoa! how He loves …

My favorite flower. The peony.

The peony is my favorite flower. They have always held a special place in my heart. For as long as I can remember, they've grown in my childhood backyard. My mom has a plant from the house I was born in, their current house - the house I grew up in - and a plant from my Great-Grandma. As kids, we would watch in awe as the ants crawled over the peony buds, almost willing them to open. It was a chore getting those little suckers off once the flowers were ready to be cut and brought into the house. But it was worth the effort.

My dad has always commented that the flowers smell like old lady perfume. Haha!  I still think of that when I bring the blooms up to my nose for a whiff of Spring. They're such a romantic flower. I wanted them for my bridal bouquet, but they had already stopped blooming by the time June 3rd rolled around. So sad.

Apartment living was dreary for me when it came to flowers. No lilacs, tulips or peonies. When we moved to our current house, I was …

Be Still, My Soul. Remembering...

My first post of 2014.

Looking back on my last post, I'm overwhelmed with many emotions. It was the last post before our world was turned upside down, before the cold weather hit hard, before doctor visits became our norm. Before Halloween, Thanksgiving, my 30th birthday, Christmas and New Years. Looking back at the title of that post, I'm struck with how appropriate it was for the rest of the year. I tried to blog a few times since October 13th. But I never got to the point where I felt like I could publish. I had a million and one thoughts constantly tumbling around in my tiny mind. Writing helped to unload it, but just like it is with my trusty old dishwasher, there's always dirty dishes to take the place of the clean ones and I found myself overwhelmed and overcome with both good and bad...clean and dirty. My brain has felt like mush since October. Add holidays, getting sick, taking care of sickies, being the strong one, being the brave one, being the hea…
