Early Christmas Presents!

Michael surprised me with an early Christmas present - a beautiful ivory pea coat from J.Crew! Since it has been SO cold here, it was perfect timing. I sort of have a coat obsession, so naturally I loved this gift!
J. Crew Wool Harbor Pea Coat
But my REAL Christmas present is being installed today - new granite countertops in our kitchen! I am so excited - I can't wait to get home and see how they turn out. I'll be sure to post pictures :)

On another note, today is my last day of work until January 4th. It's ok to be jealous :) Merry Christmas!

Junior League!

I had my first Junior League meeting last night! It was so fun. I'm really glad my friends, Grace and Susan, wanted to do it! I highly recommend JL to anyone, especially if you are new to a city (like me). It's a great way to meet people and get involved in your community. Looking forward to all the fun things ahead!

Happy Wednesday!

Just wanted to share a few pictures of the cutest baby in the world.
My adorable nephew, Gates!
Just one of the guys...hanging with my brothers and Michael:
I love this little guy!

Updated house pictures!

So we are finally unpacked in our new house! We also had tons of rooms painted over the last week. We even updated the master bathroom some! Without further ado, here are some pictures...

Living Room - we painted the fireplace,mantle, and hearth (it was this horrendous painted red...)
View from the Living Room into the Dining Room. We still need to replace that ugly brass chandelier:
Another view of the newly painted fireplace:
Powder Room - we painted this room a light grey with some hints of green. It used to be this extremely bright sea foam green:
Kitchen - this was painted yellow (NOT my favorite). We painted it a greige (grey + beige):
Another view of the kitchen:
The sun room - this was also painted the yellow:
We removed this massive, outdated ceiling fan from the kitchen ceiling and replaced it with the flush mount light fixture:The hallway to the bedrooms. This was painted BRIGHT red:
And finally...the bathroom! We put in a new vanity, counter tops, and all new fixtures. Eventually we'd like to tile the floors, but that will have to wait.

You can see the before pictures in the post below. Next up on the list are new kitchen counter tops! Hooray! Also, do you like our Christmas decorations? If you can't tell, I LOVE colored lights!
