A Pop of Color

My living room and kitchen are brown. Lots of brown. I love the dark wood, that's what drew me to this house but I felt like I needed some color. I found this rug and these pillows at Kirklands. I feel like it's just what the rooms needed!

Why We Can't Have Nice Things

I was so excited last night. I found two chairs at Target for $30 each (regularly $100 each!) to go with our game table in the basement. The chairs will also serve as supplemental chairs for when our kitchen table extension is in to fit eight.

 This picture was taken just after 9:00 last night when I got the chairs set up:

This morning I got the following text from Matthew at 7:32:

After school I come home to find this:

The lamp is broken as is the table leg. Apparently Molly had the great idea to sit on the table to read. Well at least it looked nice for ten hours while we were sleeping.

Added a coffee table to my living room for the first time since we've had toddlers. 

Took my students on a fishing field trip.

With cooler weather we broke out some fall outfits. 

Matthew had another soccer game.

Wedding Weekend

We spent the weekend in Iowa at my cousin's wedding. She was a beautiful bride and it was wonderful seeing so much of our family. It was also my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. It was so special to be with them in the same church they were married in 50 years ago.
