Some grass, paintings and wrinkles.

Our little seed grass has grown! While it looks nice and thick...

Most of it looks like this. Spotty, and filled with weeds. I'm hoping that it will continue to grow in and the weeds will get pushed out. Its nice having some grass. It feels more like a home!
I have been in a painting mood. I painted the wall in my dining room a darker grey. Although it has turned out a little blue. 
On to the other paintings. I have been painting this year.  I have found such a sense of accomplishment with every painting I finish. It fuels my creativity and help me focus it on something, rather than a hundred things. 
I finished these two a while ago, but finally hung them up today. This is our updated bedroom. It is still in the process of being finished. Maybe I will get some good ideas on the new season of Design Star!
Lastly, I would publicly like to thank my dad for these lovely wrinkles he gave me on my forehead. With out them, I would look so much younger, and more lady like! Thanks Dad!

What? When you say that you are painting do you mean the two pieces of artwork I saw hanging on your walls? Wow girl, those are really really good. I mean, I shouldn't be suprised, look who I am talking about. Do you wanna paint something for my house? You're welcome to come down here anytime and help me with design tips. Heaven knows Jaren and I need them. Anyways, died laughing when I read the wrinlke comment. don't worry, I got the never ever go away tummy roll from my mom. I'd switch you with the forehead rolls anyday.

About Me

My photo
I always had aspirations to make it big. Learn French. Move to Paris- for good. Instead, I met my soul mate, and our two lives became one. We decided to make it small, and moved to a little city. The inspiration for this blog came to me, while I was driving on an old country road with the top down and my man at the wheel. As the fields flew by, and the the Wasatch Mountains glowed in the Sunset. I realized that I may never be able to speak French and I will never move to Paris but I had made it big after all. This blog is dedicated to all the little things that make small town living beautiful.
