- Hartsburg Pumpkin Festival 2013 -

Isn't funny how the simplest of events can eventually turn into family traditions?
From the time the boys were babies, we have been taking them to the Hartsburg Pumpkin Festival each Fall ... circling the same pathway, enjoying the same sites, food and music.  It seems like every year is the same, but each time we develop different memories.  I wouldn't' change it for the world!

For the first time, both boys rode a horse ....

They actually acted like they enjoyed each others company ...

and of course the Straw Tradition was kept ...

Love these boys ... how did I get sooo lucky?!

Master Bedroom Progress

Tuesday, October 8, 2013
Our room is finally starting to feel like "our room" again.  That feeling of comfort and relaxation!

With all the updates going on in the house, it's nice that our bedroom is almost complete.  There are a few things here and there, but basically, it's just about done.

We'll be adding a nice black dresser and TV along the long wall facing the bed itself.  And I am still trying to find some of my nice pillows that belong on the bed.  I am sure they are still in storage!  One day!!

We went with our old wall color for the last house - Gravity. It's by Valspar, however, we get the Benjamin Moore paint instead and just have them match it!

Little by little it's feeling like home! :)

Our Newest Addition ...

Tuesday, October 1, 2013
Introducing ... the newest member of our family ... our over-sized, lovey lantern!
I can't tell you how many hours I searched for a lantern exactly like this one.  I mean, I spent days, months even, trying to track down a moderately-priced hanging interior lantern.

Would you believe that this guy was a stones throw away from me the whole time?
I work near a small, high-end interior design & furniture store.
I walked in there with the hubs one day after lunch, saw it from a distance and knew it was mine!

Can you believe I paid only $250?

If you look online, these bad boys go over over $1,000 EASY!  This particular one had been installed in a clients home, which later was taken down because she felt it was too big for her space.  SO, to move it, they priced it to sell!

From this ....

to this ...

And FINALLY ... to thisss...

So far, it's easily the best addition we've made to the house thus far!
