Fall Recreation.

There is something about Spring and Fall that gets me in the mood to recreate... or just create.
Our bathroom has been on my mind for a while now. Its just driving me crazy! Its organized, but it is so dull and has pretty much looked the same since we bought our house over 3 years ago. I say its time for a new design!
A couple months back my grandparents gave us their old bathroom sink/counter top/cabinet. It was hardly used and is a lovely white color, but the marble top is a few shades of pink. Which i think is very pretty, but a bit difficult to match. So i have been brainstorming....
When we got married and were shopping for a few essentials we bought this hideous looking shower curtain as a joke. Somehow it has stuck around for much longer than we had anticipated. I found a shower curtain from Bed Bath & Beyond which i love. I was hoping it would match perfectly, but its a little off. I decided that i don't care! Dan and i both like it, and that is all that matters. I have decided that "anything that makes our home feel like home, will be in our home". Make sense? There is no need to compete with Better Home and Garden, its useless.
So i have picked out the color for the walls, trim and cabinets. I can't wait to finish it! I spend so much time in our bathroom... as it is also the laundry room ;-)  I think i deserve a little cheery feel for the winter months.

So school has started, colds are going around (which Dan and Isaiah both have), the leaves are falling and Labor Day has come and gone. As much as i despise being cold, i really do have an appreciation for Fall:

Fall Harvest.
The air smells so fresh and crisp.
Warm apple Cider is being sold at the coffee shop.
People are forced to dress modestly HAHA!... sorry, ahhem.
The leaves are turning beautiful colors.
Our 3rd anniversary is 48 days away!
I can't wait for our anniversary! Originally we were planning to go up to the Niagara Falls and stay at the Hotel up there... but now we aren't sure what we are going to do. Leaving Isaiah makes it hard for both of us and so we have yet to decide our plans. No matter what we do i just can't wait. It will be nice to spend the day with my Husband.

We didn't do much for Labor Day, just relaxed around the house. Visited with both our families a little and relaxed some more. Dan works so hard, so he really appreciated having a day off. It made us both feel a little spoiled to just be able to hang out at the house as a family and have no where to be, which is always lovely! Isn't it nice to dream about having the ones you love always with you and free from other occupations..... yep, this girl is going to keep on dreaming!

I love baby clothes!
