{A Little Bit of This, A Little Bit of That}

It Friday! We are still patiently waiting for our proofs from last Saturday of little Bayler. I can't wait to get them back, and put them up around the house. I LOVE newborn pictures, and I think everyone who has a baby should do this, because you can never get that time back. This picture of Bayler and I was taken a few moments before our photographer arrived ... hopefully her's will be better :)

In the meantime, I captured a few pictures from this morning. The first is for the Grandpas, and the second is a picture of Braeden getting ready to give Bayler a big juicy kiss :)

I mentioned in a couple posts back that I am going to be "painting our counter tops." Yesterday I grabbed the kids and piled them in the car for a fun trip to Lowe's! I ended up taking this picture of the granite I like, hopefully I will be able to recreate this... what do you think? My goal is to start on this project in August.

Another project I am going to try to get done in August is this door. Now, a black door will not look so good at our house, but I am going to do this on the front door so it faces the street. I haven't picked a color yet, but I am hoping it turns out something like this ...

And finally, many of you know that this has been a LONG year. First year of marriage, being pregnant the whole time, exhausted all the time ... yeah, I'm craving a Vacay ... BAD. Although we don't have any planned at the moment, I am thinking that I could just spend a couple of afternoons/evenings on something like this ... with sweet tea and book in my hands! My kids would never leave me alone out there for course, but it's a nice thought ... and looks "oh so relaxing!" You can see more pictures of these hanging porch beds here.
