I'd rather have thirty minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special...

I'm baaaack! I took a little haitus from the blogging world to enjoy the last days of winter. A bunch of us headed up to Vermont to a gorgeous house up on a mountain (thanks Brianne!!) and basically had a blast. I haven't laughed so hard in forever. Between sangria induced rounds of Catch Phrase and Scattergories, scouting the outdoors for great shots, a little bit of Top Chef: Stewart's Edition (pretty much like a glorified 7-eleven), snowmobiling (I actually drove my own and friggin LOVED it) and just plain 'ol vegging out, it was just what the doctor ordered. We're planning a camping trip next. Can't wait!

I'm desperately trying to get this house ready for Easter. There's so much I want to do, so much I want to buy, and so much I want to refinish. I'm hoping to get somewhere near my "vision" before the holiday arrives. I think my problem is that I"m always buying the accessories for a room (frames, vases, candles, decor items) and not the bigger pieces that bring it all together. Which is probably good since I'm on a budget afterall. After some wainscoting in the formal and some new paint colors, I think things will feel more pulled together. I hope.

BTW, that's Kelso in the photo. Basically the coolest dog, besides my Dixie ;)

I'll be back tomorrow with my Label Tulip layouts! I LOVED this kit, yet again :D
