this is my mom (see pic to the right). seriously. she is a stud. she came out to visit for the last week and you would think that she had been hired to do a home make-over or something. i think i will list all of the things that she did for my house: we painted the walls (huge, huge improvement over flat white walls), she hung two towel rods, one curtain rod, hung 17 picture frames, three box frames and one shelf, we made a fall wreath that is beautiful on my front door, made and hung a covering for my washer and dryer, made a cool fall vine thing to go on our bookshelf, she and luke changed the doors around on our fridge and freezer, she made yummy dinners and yummy birthday cakes, babysat a bunch, and i am drawing a blank but she did more, i know it! the woman is amazing! our little apartment is super cozy now and feels a lot more like home. so thanks again mom, your the best, come and visit whenever you want! it pays to have a mom who is into interior design and is total sweetheart!
so that is what was going on around these parts the last week. we had velzy's birthday party and went to the beach too. we have some cute pics but they are on my mom's camera and i will post them when i get some copies of them! these pics are of the apartment. our kitchen used to be a boring all white ugly thing, and with the new paint it has been given new life, and i love it.
the pics on the wall are my favorite! the idea came from a pottery barn catalog and we brought it to life, and it looks amazing!
fall is really setting in, all of the sudden today there is a bit of a nip in the air and it is a lot cooler, and all of the sudden it smells like we live in the moutains outside, like pine trees, and the leaves are starting to turn pretty colors. i am excited and a bit scared too because i don't want to be cold! i am such a wimp. my friend erin was telling me how she grew up in wyoming and they would walk home from school in the snow barefoot- barefoot! i used to think we were cool when we would wear sandals all winter in california.
