Need a Vacation!

I am in need of a vacation! I apologize for my lack of blogging but I have been busy with work and lots of things going on. Jeff and I have been looking for houses. I feel like I have seen way to many houses and none of them are really impressing me enough to purchase. We were planning on purchasing within the next year so we started just casually looking, but my cousin who is getting married in June is looking at doing her residency for med school at a hospital in Jacksonville. So her and her soon to be hubby would like to rent the house Jeff and I are in from my parents while she is here for three years which makes sense. But that means if they do that then Jeff and I need to get a house. I obviously will not be moving out unless I find something I love (sorry Melis, who I'm sure is reading this) but I really have been looking hard and coming up short. Lately Jeff and I have been talking and my dad brought up the idea of building a house which I didn't think was really an option for our starter house. But when I started looking into it, it didn't seem like such a bad idea. So this weekend Jeff, my dad, and I are going to meet with a local builder to see our options. We found a plan we like and all the specs look to good to be true so I'm wondering what the catch is so we will see how it goes on Saturday! It stresses me out and I'm over the process of looking constantly on the internet and come up with nothing.

I keep telling Jeff we need to go on a mini vacation. I have been stalking flights to Chicago to see if they are reasonable but they are crazy expensive right now as is everywhere else. The next trip Jeff and I have planned is New Year's Eve to Savannah with some friends and that seems like forever away!!

If only things could be easy! On a positive note I'm happy it's finally Fall. I got the Fall decorations out and the pumpkin patch candle burning every night. If only the weather would start to cool down. I can't wait to wear my authentic boots my brother bought us out in Oklahoma with some tights and a scarf!

Grammar Colorado House

Did anyone see Kelsey Grammar's mountain house in Colorado on the last episode. It was pretty amazing. I am not to big on cold weather, but my sister is trying to get me to go snow skiing but I sure wouldn't mind sitting in the hot tub at this house and staying for a week or two.

You wouldn't thinking an old wooden ladder would be something to useful inside your outside. But I love how they look and I am in search of one. I have found quite a few on the internet I can buy, but they cost quite a bit to ship. So my goal is to find one in an antique store hopefully soon or else I will just order one. I am going to use it to hang out blankets on in our living room. Jeff and I both have a blanket on every time we sit down on the couch then they just are either on the floor or the couch and it drives me crazy. So I figured this would be a great way to hold our blankets but also look good just like below..

Here are some other different ways you can use ladders in your house...

It's the Weekend!

It was only a four day week but man was I ready for the weekend! We have lots of things planned for this weekend so it's going to be a busy one. Last night I went to dinner with some of the mama's to have a late birthday dinner with them. It was great to catch up and start thinking our next football season already starts in less than three months.
Most importantly little Camdyn is turning one, my best friends baby girl. It is hard to believe how fast this year went but today we are going to celebrate at an everything pink birthday party. Here are some pictures of her over the year she is such a big girl now. She is not even Jeff and I's child, but we love that little girl like she is. She is one of the best little babies to be around. So we can't wait to celebrate with her today.

This is her last week on the verge of walking.
