Pinteresting Wednesday

Happy Hump Day!

Its been a while since I've done a Pinteresting Wednesday so I thought it was time!

How beautiful is this dress!?  I wish I owned this and had a place to wear it it STAT.

Since I am in the decorating mood, I would LOVE to have my living room look something like this:

Would also love to have a chair like this, but I don't think Doc would go for it....

And finally some quotes that stood out to me:

Have a great rest of the day!

Decorating, decorating, and more decorating!

Happy Friday everyone!

I'm a happy girl today because I get to fly to Miami for the weekend....finally some warm weather after this ice storm we had today!  This weekend is my new sister-in-law's bridal shower and bachelorette party so it will be a very fun filled weekend!  I'll behave....maybe....

In other news, we are still on track to close on our new house on April 1st so I've been trying to start boxing up stuff in our current apartment.  Every time I start, I feel like I don't even put a dent into all that we have to pack up!  Doc also thinks I'm crazy for packing "so early" but its not....and I know that April 12th {our move out date} will be here before we know it.

I've also been trying to figure out how I'm going to decorate our new house and I think I'm just totally overwhelmed! There is too much that I like...too many colors, patterns, styles, etc. I just need to pick something and go with it but for now, these are a few items that I know that we'll purchase:

Martha Stewart Saybridge couch in buckwheat:
I saw this couch on The Wanna-be Southern Belle's blog and loved it! I just love its elegance and I think it will really dress up our living room.

Z Gallerie Jameson Bed in bella grey:
Doc and I are finally getting a king bed so got super excited when I found this beauty!  LOVE a tufted headboard! I think this bed will be gorgeous in person...just trying to decide weather to get in in grey or pearl...I'm leaning towards grey.

{Obviously I'm into tufted materials....}

Z Gallerie Mimosa Bedding in white:
Love the all white bedding with the hint of a pattern in it.  I also like the idea of allowing the color to come from the rug, pillows, and curtains. That way it will be easy to update as time goes on!

That's all I've got for now....everything else I'm back and forth on!  I think I may just have to move and live in the house for a little while before I figure out how it will all be decorated? 

Any advice on narrowing down your ideas when everything looks good?

Have a great weekend everyone!

Thursday Randomness

Happy Valentines Day everyone! 

I've never been a big celebrator of Valentines Day.  I mean its fun and all, but I feel like its too commercialized.  I get the premise of the day, but I feel like you should show your loved ones you love them everyday...not just on February 14th, right?  Either way, I still like to do a little celebrating with Doc so tonight we are going to dinner at a nice Fish/Steakhouse here in Columbus that we've never been to.

What are you all doing to celebrate? Are you a big celebrator of V-day?

In other news.............Doc and I are very excited because we're buying our first house!! We went up to Royal Oak, MI a couple weeks ago to look for houses and surprisingly found our perfect home within 1 day of looking!  Since then its been a whirlwind going through the process of buying a home.  New territory for the both of us but very very exciting! 

We had the inspection last weekend and everything went well there so now we are on our way to closing on the house April 1st!  Our lease is up on our apartment April 10th so we will be moving probably around April 9th...its going to be a very busy/crazy Spring for us.  My brother is getting married in Miami on April 6th so I basically will need be all packed up prior to flying down there for the wedding.

I wish I had pictures I could show you but as soon as I do...I will post them!  I cannot wait to decorate this new house!  I have been growing increasingly restless with our current decor in our apartment, so I'm sooo ready for a change!  Posts to come on my ideas for the new house.....

Have a great Thursday!  The weekend is right around the corner :)
