Now that's what I call a successful lunch break!

My blog posts have been few and far between as of late.
I really hate that.

All day long I have a thousand things racing through my head,
I have about ten 'potential' posts filed away up there
but after an 8 hour day and two hours of travel
I am exhausted when I get home.

And I would apologize, but thats life right? Working, family and a two day rest.
I'll figure it out eventually. promise.
Until then, I'm trying my best to sneak in post at least once a week.

I did however manage to make use of my lunch breaks-
having a Mardens and Renys 5 minutes from work is dangerous....
Here are my latest finds. I am SO excited to decorate.
Decorate my new house. Decorate for fall.

Inspiration for the guest bedroom.
I love the vases I found, they are so bright and fun!
The curtains are a light blue/green with chocolate trim and a pretty scarf to overlay with.
I love it!
A rust colored kitchen towel that matches the wall color and dining room curtains.
Beautiful imitation blue glass I found to decorate the kitchen with.
I love the contrast between rust and deep blue.
Just a few things I've collected along the way.
I'm not sure what will go where, but I'm having fun playing with the color tones.
I'm so excited to get moved in and decorate for fall too!
It just so happens that pumpkins will match my kitchen perfectly.
Oh! I love fall!

Jumbled Mess

Ever have those days when everything goes wrong before you even touched your toes to the floor?

of course you have. it's called life isn't it?

Today is one of those days.

This week is one of those weeks.

You aren't really expecting an actual post are you? Because all I've got are jumbled thoughts and lists flying in and out of my scrambled brain. So that's what you get....still love me?

List 4 thousand 9 hundred and 64.

* I got a job! Not exactly the job of my dreams persay...but the people are fabulous and I am loving the office life again. Not so much the hours or the subject matter, but God truly had his hand in this. but more on this later because this is suppposed to be a list...

* My Soldier and I have been staying with my parents, our whole life stored in their basement...anxiously awaiting the closing of our new house.

* I am currently sitting (yes-sitting) on an ice pack. Why? 4:30 am trip to the little girl's room and I, in my delirious state, fell half way down the stairway. kerrsmack! yikes. It hurts bad. My chiropractor appointment can't come soon enough.

*I have nine gagillion things I want to do and NO time to do it.

* I haven't talked to my best friend in a week. (thats YEARS for us)

* My other best friend is having a precious baby girl in 3 weeks and I haven't seen her baby belly in a month. NOT OK.

*This new working woman- white collar thing- I am exhausted! Driving an hour to and from work is going to get old reallll fast. Thank God the office is fabulous.

* I realized yesterday that I have 5 saved posts, all of which aren't completed and all of which I really wanted to share with you! soon...

*It has been horrifically hot here the past week...we're talking high 90's and humidity. yuck.

Isn't it September in New England?

I am SO excited for fall weather! Pumpkin candles, pumpkin spice coffee!, apple-picking, crisp morning air, soccer games, scarves! (I love scarves!) ahh...Don't you love fall?!

What's on your mind this morning?
