Master Decoration

Remember how I posted pictures of our bedroom?
These ones?

well i finally got around to picking a bedroom color
i finally got around to painting the room
i also got around to painting & distressing our dressers...

wannna see?

i know you do...
so here it is!!!

don't mind the mess in the hallway.. mmmkay?

now i know it's not perfect yet.. but it is really hard to decorate when you live in the boonies.
decorating takes time and frequent shopping trips
i'm very limited on both of those things

but it's a start and i'm so glad i finally got rid of the ugly green

you want to know something funny?
i placed a grey paint chip color on the wall and ryan
asked why i would paint it the same color....
i sometimes forget he is color blind.
it all makes sense now...

it's still a work in progress...
but at least it's better... right?

Things that make me smile...

I made a list of thing that make me smile to make me feel better.
Here they are:

Things that make me smile:

-laughing so hard that I cry. {or snort}
-staying in a bubble bath until all the bubbles are gone.
-when a storm turns into a light drizzle right before I go outside.
-when everything you are cooking gets done at the same time.
-when my iPod shuffle reads my mind.
-when I forget I ordered something online and then it randomly shows up. 
{happens all the time, I'm just really forgetful}
-a little kid who is at the age where they say "hi" to everyone.
-catching up to a car that just passed me at the red light.
-when someone leaves a building at the same times as I do so I don't have to touch the door.
-when a red light turns green as I approach it.
-staying up so late that everything is funny.
-somehow waking up at the right time even though I forgot to set my alarm clock.
-when the person I'm meeting is even later than I am.
-dancing like a dork when you're home alone.
-when a cop finally passes me after following behind me for a what seems like forever.
-when my pup is really excited that I'm home.
-popping bubble wrap.
-when I'm really tired and about to fall asleep and someone (it's usually my mom... never my husband) throws a blanket on me.
-when you come home to a crock pot dinner that smells irresistible.
-when I wake up to puppy kisses.
-when I realized everything that happened, fell perfectly into place.

Happy Anniversary To Us!

So Ryan & I celebrated our 1st Wedding Anniversary!
Can you believe it?
I can't.
A whole year went by.
Somehow by having a wedding anniversary, I feel accomplished and old.
Accomplished because we made it a year (without Ryan dying).
Old because now I have wedding anniversaries.

We celebrated by traveling up to the San Juan Island and Orcas Island.
It is incredibly gorgeous up there.
That's saying a lot from a girl who grew up living in the Columbia Gorge area.

Here are a few pictures from our trip!
Sunset on "Grandma's Cove"
English Camp Beach

Moran State Park... This is one of my favorite pictures.

This is my beautiful baby!

This is the hubs!

They had Blackberry Barbeque Sauce. Yummmmm! I also had Hush Puppies for the 1st time. So Good.

I love the beach. It's one of my favorite places. So peaceful.

This is me... Hair all crazy in the wind and all!

Again... My beautiful baby.

Grandma's Cove Again

Rainey loves sticks!
