A day I will never forget

I know today is a day we will always remember and a day I will struggle with every year for the rest of my life. I can still remember that day like it was yesterday. I was in 8th grade this time 10 years ago, sitting in History class first thing in the morning when the worst terrorist attack on American soil ever happened. I couldn't process what was going on. I remember realizing how many people died but it almost didn't seem real to me. As time has gone on, I have realized the what really happened that day.

I pray for the families who lost loved ones that day and I am so thankful to the brave men and women who helped save so many that day and for our military who has been fighting for us since.

Decorating obsessed!

In the spare time that I have had recently, I have had only one thing on the brain... decorating! We have gotten so much done for the new house and I cannot wait to move in! We recently had a little "ladies sofa" redone for my bedroom and I am in love! When I first saw this bad boy it was covered in tattered green velvet and looked worse for the wear. But, after a little furniture polish and a new fabric, it is totally my style! I can definitely see Cupie lounging up there!
I love the old look to this, I think it is perfect for a lady's bedroom!

Here is an up-close of the fabric. I like that the more modern geometric print offsets the older styler of the sofa.
We have had several other pieces redone, but I won't bore y'all since this is one of my favorite! (Well maybe I have some other faces but those will have to wait for another day!)

I have been dying to pick out all of the fun accents like rugs, art, etc. but I think that is all going to have to wait until I get everything moved in and settled... Speaking of which, moving needs to happen ASAP because it looks like my parents should be on an episode of hoarders these days.
Exhibit A:
This would be their guest bedroom which has been full of my stuff for months! I know they are getting sick of it, as am I!
So, my question for y'all is, where do I get cute prints/ decor for my house? I love The Pink Pagoda and will be purchasing several prints there, but I am sort of lost otherwise. HELP!

I hope everyone has had a great Tuesday! I am so glad this is only a four day week, because I am already exhausted!!

It has been a while!

Happy Labor Day! Once again, sorry for being so MIA! I think I need to schedule in blogging on my agenda or it will never get done!

So, whats going on in my world? Basically school. I pretty much spend all my time during the school week and Sundays doing work, but I have had a chance to meet tons of fun people and go out with them a few times. I went out Friday night with some people from school and we had a great time! Like, didn't get home till 4 am fun. (That is so not me considering y'all know I like to be in bed by 9 pm) But being a little tired on Saturday was worth it!

The house is coming along slowly but surely! However, just as we thought we were entering the home stretch, we decided to redo the basement. I may move in by the time I graduate! Only kidding!

I also had a little ooopsie with my car. Ok, more than a little, I have to get both of my passenger doors replaced. I hit a pole leaving school one day last week and what I thought was a "minor dent" is actually some serious damage. I know it was my fault, but I am still blaming it on the fact that I was in a garage I had never been in, haha.
Not good!

Cupie is finally back to normal, praise the Lord! I was starting to really get scared when she was so sick and then she had a pulled muscle. If it isn't one thing, it's another, right? Well she seems to be a-ok these days and I am so thankful and praying that she stays healthy!

I have some fun projects for the new house that are in the works (if I EVER have any free time) so I will keep y'all up to date on those!

I hope y'all have a fabulous and relaxing day!!


PS- my Ponies sadly lost last night against Texas A&M, but I know they are going to be great this season!
