I finally chopped my hair!
Well... kinda...
I cut off about 5 inches
It doesn't really look like it but I can tell when I run my fingers thru it..
Its a little darker too!
I was going to take about 12 inches off and donate it to
Locks of Love but it cant be color treated at all...
I might take a little more off...
but I'm going to give it a week or two!

Just thought it was kinda cool!

Project Day!

Today was project day at the Wilkinson Home!
We started off wanting to change the hardware on our dressers...
Well.. once at Home Depot we decided a new coat of pint was necessary too!
I remembered while in Seattle I had seen some neat hardware at Anthropology
So off to Bridgeport we went!
Here are some photos of my dresser =)

Dylan sanding..
with his new sander.. lol!
We can never leave Home Depot without a new toy!
Here is a before
painted blue with chips of yellow and green, previous colors...

I'm defiantly going back for the 6 more I need to finish!

Welcome Fall!

Well, after much debate (with mostly myself)
I decided to keep up with tradition and start decorating for Autumn.
With the record breaking temps in the area this week
it just felt weird to hang a wreath in the 90's
Tradition trumped the temp!
Happy Fall Everyone!!!

We looked at a few litters of puppies but she

We were able to take her home on November 1st!

Emma and Jackson meeting for the first time!!
It was a little bit of a rough start but they are best buds now!

I cant believe it has already been 3 years!

I can honestly say it has been the best years of my life so far..

and hopefully many, many more to come!

Football Kickoff Party!

This past weekend we had our 3rd annual Football
season kickoff party/BBQ at our home!
We would like to thank everyone who made it over!
With almost 30 people in our little place,
It was the best yet!
Well, until next year....

The Bravern

So, If you know me well, you know I love Neiman's!
With the only store in the NW..
of course I would be at the opening!

It was everything I imagined!! lol!
And of course in true form and just my luck...
with money to burn, the only thing I purchased was
some gummy bears for Dylan..
I did manage to find a bracelet (more like a cuff) at Tory Burch!
It was a fun trip and a BLAST,
like always to see my friend Erin!
A perfect end to a great morning at the Bravern,
lunch at The Cheesecake Factory!
here is a link to The Shops at Bravern!!

Labor Day Weekend at the BEACH!

For the Labor Day weekend we headed down to the beach!
We really tried to go outside our bubble (Cannon Beach)
during this long weekend and try other restaurants
so when people ask me where to eat I can recommend
more that just places in Cannon Beach!
We tried a bunch of new places,
from Mexican to a McMenamins =)
The photo is us at the McMenamins Sand Trap in Gearheart!
I would defiantly recommend it!

Clean Carpets!

Well, apparently all most of all the furniture we own can fit into out kitchen..
My hubby was great and read my mind and moved it all before I got home from work!
hes a keeper =)
Poor Emma, she didn't know what to do..
You can usually find her underneath anything...
but with all the furniture in the kitchen,
she just sat in the middle of the living room..
