Bokeh Goes Exploring

  • The New House

living our house building experience through pictures right now. It’s a little nerve racking to think that we’re missing a full week and a half of work but we have some great house sitters (aka, our parents) who are keeping us up to date on the progress. Building a house is just a crazy experience…. and we do love it! We are just so thankful for the advice that we received about visiting the site everyday and taking a ton of pictures (like I would really have an issue with that). Right now they’re probably finishing the stone on the front and who knows what’s happening on the interior!

Our Visit to Vegas in Instagrams

  • Vegas 2013

five days have just flown by! WPPI seems like a blur. We’re out of sin city and we’re headed out on our RV adventure!! If you’re in CA and pass a “Cruise America” RV that looks lost, just wave, it’s probably us!!! We loved our time with friends in Vegas but if we’re being completely honest, this is what we’ve been looking forward to the most!! We’ve had this planned for SO long!! Buddy and Jill are with us for this adventure and we are so excited to spend some time together!! So wish us lucky and be sure to check out some of our instagrams from VEGAS!!!

Paint Colors | A Million Shades of Gray

  • The New House

moving right along with the new house! The walls are drywalled and spackled, the shake siding is on and all of the windows are in! It’s just insane to watch this take form. We came back from our CA trip two weeks ago and it was like it was a totally different house! We’ve had several bumps along the road but they have been corrected and we’re getting so excited to see all of our interior selections start to come in! We picked a dark wood floor for the downstairs. It isn’t a traditional hard wood, it’s hand scraped with random width and we love it! The trim and the molding will be white and the downstairs is pretty wide open. So naturally, I have a painting dilemma.
