Update on Life and ramblings...

I sit on the couch in the peace and quiet as my baby sleeps and my husband is out hunting with "the guys"... It has been a whirlwind couple of weeks, to say the least! I have alot of things planned to blog about so I thought I would plant some sees and get everyone excited! I really hope to build my audience as I write daily. I started off my day yard saling with James. We went to at LEAST ten sales and at the LAST one I found two mesh feeders for him.. thats it! I also came across a shelf I immediately fell in love with, until I noticed it was broken and the owners were "Firm" on all of their prices. Sorry, but I can't pay $15 for a nasty, dirty, broken shelf. I would have had to put double that into it just to show it off in my kitchen! ha! Who doesn't make deals at a yard sale? Apparently there was some emotional attachment to that green shelf. :)

I rearranged our dining room tonight. How do you rearrange a dining room? Well, since you asked, you throw a rug from the entry under the table that now sits where the desk used to stand. Following that, you change up the place mats & center piece. Viola! A whole new space! (Picture posted on Instagram! Follow me: PTOLLE !!!

I bought some curlers today... I think I might give em' a whirl for church tomorrow! :) 

I also made a cake stand and painted it yellow.... Now I can't find it a home...because it is yellow :/ ha! 

Anyways! I hope you all are enjoying your evening, we will be having a yard sale in a few weeks, so our weekend is going to be mostly dedicated to preparing for THAT! Tuesday is James' 4 month appt and I think we are going to make a day of it since we will be working hard to clean out our storage unit tomorrow! 

Have a wonderful, safe, relaxing Labor day! And keep your eyes peeled for some updated Tolle House pictures, I just LOVE being home!

The Cabin

You maybe remember when I posted about Jimmy and I being blessed to have the option of living out at my family's cabin after our wedding. We were so pleased to be able to vaca out their again this summer! This year was a bit different, however. Last year consisted of late nights out on the Lake Bass Fishing and enjoying each others company; this year consisted of giggles, tears and infant sized life vests! Jimmy was working a few miles south of the cabin, so we opted to live out there for two weeks! While I had a ton of photo sessions while we were home, James and I enjoyed a few days relaxing by the water. Family came out, boats were driven and fish caught!

...we also did this :) Who doesn't enjoy a good nap?
