So today I have been busy with lots of projects! I think I told you that Lindy wanted to re-do her room so we have been looking for throw pillows and ordering her comforter and sheets, etc. Next we will be matching paint.

And this morning Ashley and I went to Target, Linens and Things, and Bed, Bath, and Beyond looking for some new stuff for her bathroom which is also our guest bath. We are all totally over her teenage-y blue and yellow daisy theme she has had going on in there. Time for an update!!

We spent forever looking at different combinations of towels and shower curtains, etc. and couldn't decide on what we liked, so we ended up leaving with nothing. But then I went back with Laura and Lindy later in the day and we tried some different combinations and finally decided on what we wanted. I even got paint and have been painting all afternoon. I will show you some before and after pictures soon!

We also stopped by Pier One and got these pillows for my porch.

During our shopping spree we had to stop and get some ice cream to share. Here we are at Ben and Jerry's eating a scoop of Half Baked--a mix of chocolate chip cookie dough and chocolate brownie. Laura and Lindy picked it out.

Even Steve has been working on a project over at his parents house today! I guess we're all just feeling really productive!


  1. What an awesome porch! I would be out there all the time. The pillows are great with that couch. Those are the same colors I have all over my house. I just love them together. Now, I'm hungry for ice cream. That looked SO good. Can't wait to see the finished projects! You HAVE been busy!

  2. Oh, to sit on that beautiful porch. It looks so peaceful.
