Okay Maybe I Decorated a Little my previous post I talked about never really decorating this house....Well of course today I got the urge to semi-decorate. And with that I give you this! 
I wanted a cheap and easy way to display some of our engagement pictures without buying 1500 picture frames. So, I went to Walmart and bought some gold ribbon for 97 cents (boom) and 100 clothespins (overkill) for $1.88 and pinned them to the wall! With the help of my friend Mallory we had them hung in roughly 10 minutes. I painted the clothespins with coral paint on the tips to just add a little somethin-somethin and wallaaaah!

As I was browsing the craft section I found this cute "&" for $1.87 and my heart just couldn't even handle it. I. Love. Cheap. Shit. Soooo of course I decided to paint that too and hang it above the pictures! So cute. Although, when Shane saw it and walked in the door he said "why is there an and on our and what" AND I THINK IT'S CUTE OKAY? Men.

Decorating/Moving Ramblings

Shane and I will be moving into a house in August and I am so excited. We've been living in a house/apartment for the past year and a half and I am beyond ready to be out of here. It's just....not great. With our moving coming at the end of this summer I can't help but get excited to redecorate! I never really decorated where we are now because it just never really felt like home; it just always has felt temporary......But now I am ready to decorate! Pinterest has really been inspiring me lately...And here is kind of what I'm thinking for our new little house :)
I LOVE this living room. Our living room with be a relatively small space and I just love how light and fun this room is, but still being practical for a small space. I'm currently in talks with my Mom to take her new grey sofa off her hands :) 

I'm thinking about really getting my Tim Taylor on this summer and attempting to make this table. I love it....And have no clue where to find it, so why not try to make it?! Have I ever built anything? No....But Shane built a gun cabinet once that doesn't fit his guns soooo we are off to a great start. But seriously, it looks relatively easy and I am not totally incompetent so I think I should give it a try.

I would definitely go in a different direction with the beddding but I am obsessed with the curtains and the mirror above the bed.....So cute and easy! I like instant gratification when it comes to decorating...So this would be good. I would say that the polka dots are just a little too cutesy for Shane's taste though, so we would probably skip out on those pillows :) 

Well, there is a start to my thoughts on decorating our new house. It's going to be our first time having....wait for it....A YARD! I am so excited to get off our busy road and to have a house on a dead end...It's going to be like a whole new world. Though this won't be our forever home, it's going to be the home that we start out our journey into the married unknown...and that is just exciting :)

I have always wanted to make a blog, but I could never decide if my life was interesting enough to blog. Well, we're just all going to pretend that it is interesting because I MADE A BLOG. I just decided that exciting things are starting to happen in my life and I wanted a way to look back on these things and see how far I/we have come. I have approximately 326 days until I'm a Mrs. and I plan on documenting it every step of the way!
