Home Update: Our Dining Room

The two tricky things about this room included the tight space and randomly placed electric panel. We needed furniture that would fit the area, but would still leave enough room for guests to feel comfortable when seated. Simplicity was the ultimate goal.

Because of the awkwardly placed electric panel, the wall was bare for almost 9 months. I ended up framing these Rifle Paper Co. kitchen prints and I really like they way they look in here! The chairs blended right in before the walls were painted so the light color really gave this room a fresher look.

The credenza is my favorite piece in here. We do not have a pantry, so it houses the majority of our serving dishes. I even have my parent's wedding china and my Gran's vintage dish set. I love the mix of old and new.

Everything Happens for a Reason

Oh boy, I love this.

Where Have I Been?

Hi there, have I lost my lovely blog readers? We have been busy over here with house projects, trips and lots of visitors! Let's rewind a bit...

My sister and her friend Allie drove over to Seattle for the weekend. We went to the beach, ate at Marination Station and visited a friend who just had twins!

Katie, Thayer and Addison came into town! We pretty much did every kid-friendly activity there is to do in Seattle. Grown up activities included strolling along Pikes Place Market, lunch at Lola, shopping at Nordstrom and dinner at 913 Wine Bar on the cutest (heated) patio ever.

Kid-friend activities included Ride the Ducks, Fremont Troll and cruising around at North West Trek!

We went to the beach almost every day!


Mya discovered a love for seaweed...

Addison got to see Baby!

We reenacted our wedding about 100 times, Addison was the bride of course.

We baked!

Tried on Dustin's glasses!

Broke into our own home!

Mya is going to star in a commercial, starting next week. Be on the lookout if you watch HULU, Pandora or KING-5 television ;).

We celebrated Kari and Drew's wedding on a beautiful day in Woodinville!

It's been a busy few weeks, but lots of fun! I am excited to get back to blogging on a regular basis :).
