A little over a week left...

Man after 4 LONG months we will be closing on our house this coming FRIDAY!!!! I can hear angels singing. I am so excited I can hardly stand it. Ok so no one told me how frustrating building can be!! There have been so many things that I have not been super impressed about, but also there are something I am. I just wish that the builders wouldn't do things just to get them done, maybe take a little more time and make it look nice!!! That is all i'm asking. Just makes more work for them to go back and do it again! I will post pics and details on a different post of some of the things I was stressed about and let me know if you think I am being too picky or you would be the same way... (to be continued)
ANYWAYS I thought I would share some more fun photos of the house...

I cant wait to post pictures of it all decorated!! I am picking out a sectional right now. wish me luck, I have struggled picking one out!!! Thanks for stopping by.

My daughter Ally was the VIK (very important kid) at her school this week and she needed to do an "about me" poster. So I decided I wanted to design something she can keep forever. I wanted it to be very personal too, so I left all the writing for her to do, when it was printed. I didn't want to spend a bunch of money for the printing so I just sized this as a 20x30 and printed it at Costco for $8.00. SWEET!! It really turned out adorable....
Dont mind the blurry phone pics :)

Girl "about me" poster
I also designed one for a little boy. 
Boy "about me" poster

I thought they turned out so cute, If I do say so myself :)!! I have them both available on my etsy store HERE.
They are fun little keepsake, that you can even frame if you want to.
 Ally loved it so much and she said all of her class was "so interested, they were at my knees staring, while I was talking, they loved it so much Mom!"
I was happy she enjoyed it as much as I did. She will always be my little VIK!

Idea room

I literally have been on pinterest and scrambling at Tjmax, Homegoods, Tai pan, Target, Downeast home and many more in search for decorations for my new home!! EEk They are coming along quick. Stucco is now on and Sheetrock up and mudded. I think they will be painting next week! Although I don't have the MOST recent photos here are some from the other day.

I know you are so excited you can hardly stand it, right? HA HA 
anyways I wanted to share some pinterest ideas with you on what I am imagining for the house.

I'm LOVING the neutral tones with subtle pops of color and rustic accent pieces. SIMPLICITY is what I want to be surrounded by! I am getting so anxious and cant wait start pulling things together to see the finished product is going to look like. My mind wont stop, therefore I have lost a lot of sleep thinking about this dang house. I'm ready for it to be done now! Until then I will still be loosing sleep and spending money I shouldn't for decor. :) I am going on a date with the hubs tonight for ideas on a couch/sectional. Still cant decide what I want to do... We shall see what I fall in love with! :)
Thanks for stopping by, I hope I sparked some ideas!

Just some Ideas...

So I seriously have been wanting a project to do in a house of my own for a LONG time. The house is coming along but I am wanting it to go faster..

I know I need to be patient, at least that's what my husband keeps telling me :) 
I have been deciding what to do in the kids rooms and I thought I would share a couple ideas I had for...

 I have a new found LOVE for restoration hardware.  I absolutely adore the weathered rustic look but I do not want that as the main focus in my house (although I will have a few rustic fun touches), I decided to have Rhetts room will be the rustic room. :) I want it pretty rugged (I of coarse will add a touch of vintage football (request from Mr. Collins) yet still little boyish. Make sense? Anyways those were just some Ideas that I had for my little/big boys room. I do not want to spend a crap load on the decor, so I figure I can have fun going to yard sales and thrift shops to find what I need. This room is perfect for that! What do you think? If you have any suggestions on how to or where to get some fun rustic pieces in the Salt lake valley or online, please do share :) have a fantastic Easter weekend!

Non Existent.....

Want to know why my posts have been practically non existent the past couple months?

AND THIS IS WHY (of coarse among other things )
ahh exciting right? Ya I think so too, BUT it is also super stressful & nerve racking! Building a house is a lot different than I expected. I have cried quite a few times already! ha ha well I will be posting all about this fun experience more and more and once the house is done I have a TON of ideas and projects that will be sharing!! Thanks for stopping by!
