Yet more blog filler...

This time the Pinterest kind :)

I usually am on Pinterest everyday, and now that the holidays are here (meaning September to December, the most awesome time of year), I'm getting really inspired by all the Fall-goodness (and Halloween-goodness) that I'm finding on there lately.  Here are some of my most recent pins:

I CANNOT WAIT to fit back into normal clothes, and just in time for Fall's awesome and comfy fashions! This look would be flattering post baby (anything with leggings, haha)

These look really yummy, and are relatively healthy!

Craving apple crisp like nothing else lately.

I've decided that although I like white walls IN THEORY, in real life, I need colour in my home/rooms (with lots of white accents instead). We just painted the mudroom a bright yellow, and I'm seriously debating painting the den a dark autumn orange...I may hold off though until Fall is over to make sure it's not just a seasonal thing.  LOVE this bedroom though.

Oh I could go for this right about now (reminds me of where we went for our first wedding anniversary).

I need a good wreath for our front door, and if I had the time/patience, I would attempt this because I love it.

Pretty and simple Fall decor (planning on getting some pumpkins this week!)

And just because they're cute :) (I'm hoping that one lives nearby in the fields...)

Well, those are just a few of my fav pins right now, I plan on doing another post just for Halloween pins, because I have a ton, and will be collecting them like mad from now 'til then (only 6 weeks 'til Halloween, yay!!)

Also, I've seen lots of other bloggers writing posts about things that they actually DO with their pins (meaning they don't just pin and forget them, they attempt the recipe/craft/photo idea/decor), so I plan on doing that as well (I already have one done, just need to take a pic).

Ok, blog filler over, next post may very well be an introduction of our little girl!

Until then,

 Before there was her (only 1 week to go!)...

Before there was him (at the Balloon Fiesta fair)...

Before there was her (and soon to be another little kitten)...

There was just us.

5 years ago today I married a young man who wasn't sure what he was doing with his life (who am I kidding though, neither did I!). We were young, but already had 3 years together under our belts, and were ready for the next step. We had no idea what would happen in the following 5 years, but several moves, career changes, and now 2 kids, 2 cats and 1 house later, here we are, still happy and building this life of ours.  I feel like we're at the point where we have the major building blocks 'done' (kids, house, jobs, settled in NB, etc), but I'm sure that there will be lots of changes to come in the next 5, 10, and 15 years. It's no longer just the two of us, but at the end of it all, we'll be the ones left...together.

Happy Anniversary babe, I love you.

(Ps-I've been meaning to blog (oh my have I ever), but I just haven't had any photos to share...awesome photographer I am, I know, ha!  Soon though, we're starting to paint this weekend so I'll try to snap a few before and after shots...and update on the rest of this crazy busy life we have at the moment.  Back soon!)
