a bunch of something

So, there's progress on the house, and we actually have a deck attached but I don't have pics of it.  We've enjoyed sitting up on the deck during this unseasonably warm November we've been having, even though there isn't any railing yet.  It's a little scary, but the breeze is wonderful and the stars are beautiful.  I've also kept myself occupied with dreaming of what might be in the new bedroom. 

Yes, we're moving along with the renovation upstairs, but I'm dreaming a year ahead or so when I can sit in a bathtub and read a book and listen to Sara Bareilles and relax.  I'm going to get passed this time period of construction and live in my blissfully designed master suited.

Here are a couple other things:
  • I celebrated my 35th birthday on Sunday and managed to get through it by buying a new pair of black boots and not looking into the nursery and feeling like I've just entered the "high risk" category.
  • We bought our Christmas tree today and I love the smell.  Love it!
  • School is going really well and I'm loving the kids, my classroom, and the school.
  • We're hosting a gingerbread house building party for some friends from church and I'm excited about it.  We had some friends do this years ago and we loved it, and have decided to host one ourselves.  
  • I've put a food processor on my list for Christmas.
  • I've put a massage gift card on my Christmas list.  
  • Charlie wants a Shop Vac and outdoor garden heater and he bought them both today, so I guess my shopping is already done.  
  • I ordered our Christmas cards today and had to say goodbye to the dream of sending ones with a baby in them this year.  Another year gone.

Happy birthday! Gotta love being in the club of post-35 mothers (and yes, I am being an optimist for both of us!).

I LOVE the rooms you have pictured. The colours are so beautiful!

Happy Birthday!!! I know it's not an age you want to celebrate, but I wanted to wish you the very best.
Your remodel looks like it WILL look like the finished pictures you have shown. They are gorgeous ... and I may have to borrow them for inspiration. :-)
Praying for a wonderful year ahead for you, always. I hope you had a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy (belated) birthday. I know they stop being fun after about 25, but we're glad you're here :). And I love your inspiration photos!
