Master Bedroom dilemma..

This summer has just been flying by, so much has happened already and there is still so much left to do! I have not update in a while because of how busy I have been. We have been working on the house non stop and I have been looking for paint colors for all rooms in the house. It is very hard to choose paint colors and even though it is not permanent I do not want to change it...

Here is my master bedroom dilemma...I can not figure out what to paint this room! The furniture includes: Black canopy type bed, white armoire, black night stands and all white bedding. I be live the only colors that would work are blues, grays and white or tans.... I am so overwhelmed by this! I want the room to be calm and beautiful, with a very classic look. Not too modern, but a little modern and still classic at the same time. If you have any ideas, please let me know!

Until Next time, I will leave you with a few bedroom photos I love!

Can anyone tell me whose bedroom this last photo is???

Move in Day!

Well technically we are not moving into the house-Nate will probably move in a few weeks from now, but we closed yesterday morning! YEAH!!

It was so exciting to finally get the house and be able to go over there whenever we wanted. We closed yesterday morning in Plano and our realtor brought us congratulations cupcakes and a balloon, and our lender brought us a house warming gift. After we closed we stopped to get a pizza and we ate lunch on the floor with no electricity (and no air conditioning) but it was perfect. We put a towel on the floor, ate our pizza out of the box and had our first meal at the house! :)

We have been working on it for a day and a half now, cleaning, scraping ceilings and trying to get it ready before the wedding, which is in 5 weeks! I can not believe it is so close, I get more excited everyday.

I will put up some pictures of the progress soon, but the pics below are of us going into the house the first time (as owners) and eating lunch...

wedding flowers

I know I posted earlier today, so if you have not read it yet scroll down and read! I mentioned that I met with my flower lady and I thought I would post some pictures of the flowers we chose. It is really a fantastic deal on my end because I have 3 ladies helping me plan this wedding who are just wonderful! The lady who is focusing on the flowers is able to get flowers for me from a wholesale flower place in Fort Worth so we looked today for a while, came up with a few ideas and now we have a list of flowers to go buy a few days before the big day! These are just a few of the flowers we really liked that stayed within our price range :)

(by the way we aren't using all of these colors-some of these were just the best pictures I could find)

The above flowers are called Lipstick Roses, and we are actually going to use these in the wedding-lipstick is the specific color of them...

I loved these peonies, we are going to use a few in my bouquet but that it it...they are pretty expensive!

Snap Dragons..We will probably get them in a white, they are neat flowers...we saw bouquets that had the snap dragons in them but the florist had torn off each flower so it wasn't tall like the picture you see.

These are called Dendrobium orchids and they are just beautiful!
Well there are many other flowers I could show you but it is time for me to go to bed! Until next time!

I can't believe it is already June!

Gosh it has been a while since I have updated, and it is definitely not because I am too busy because school is out and I don't have a job right now! I also can't believe it is June already! :) I have not been spending my days on the couch though, the wedding is taking up most of my time. It is a little over a month and a half away (I can't believe it!!) and all of the final details are needing to be decided. The past few weeks I have decided on the cakes for the wedding, decided on invitation design and received them, I am working on wedding programs, I ordered all of the candle stands for the wedding and these bead things for the reception, and today I met with the lady who is working on all of the flower arrangements to choose flowers.

About two weeks ago, Nate's aunt threw a party/shower for us and it was so much fun. She did such a great job with everything and it turned out perfectly. Nate got a ton of tools which he is very excited about (things I have no idea what to do with!). He got a reciprocating saw, circular saw (i think that's what it is called) a sander (I know how to use that one!), some other saw that I can't think of, tool box, tools ect. Needless to say he is thinking of all the things he can build right now! Oh! I almost forgot, we got a grill! It was funny because the next day we went to the store and Nate got an apron and chefs hat with the Dallas Cowboys logo on them so he will be ready to grill out the minute we move in :)

I got tons of great stuff also like a crock pot, house cleaning gift certificate, cooking pans, towels, china and much much more- I can't wait to use everything!!

That's about it for now-I will update again soon!
