Fall Festivities

Tuesday, November 17, 2015

In September I blogged about the fun things I wanted to do this Fall. Here's what we ended up doing:

1. October 2nd: go to concerts on the dock with Finn
We didn't do this because it was raining.
2. October 3rd: Madison Street Festival is happening. Bring Finn.
Didn't do this. Raining again. We worked on our guest bathroom instead.
3. October 3rd: we're attending a farm to table dinner at Fly Creek Farms in Pulaski, TN.
We did this and I blogged about it here.

4. October 9th: photo shoot with Ashley. Our wedding photographer is coming over to our house for a photo shoot of our home.
The photos turned out great! I'll blog about my favorites in a couple weeks.

5. October 9-11: go to New Orleans
This was a very fun weekend! Earlier this year, I won at an auction a vacation package to New Orleans. The package included one night at the Old 77 Hotel, dinner at The Chophouse, tickets to WWII museum, and tickets to the Beauregard Keyes House. Also, I bought a really awesome hat.

6. October 15: see the World War I exhibit at the Art Museum. Admission is cheaper on Thursday.
I completely forgot about this and the exhibit is already over! :( We ended up going to a Street Food Festival and concert downtown that weekend. Finn had a really fun time!

7. October 17: Huntsville ghost walk. Bring Finn.
I'm not into anything scary, but this was more of a historical walk with a tiny bit of ghost stories.

8. October 23-24: go to Mississippi College Homecoming with my mom (she also graduated from MC). I have 2 pieces in the Alumni Art Gallery, which is primarily why we're going.

9. October 31: go on the Fall Color train ride.
We didn't do this. We worked on house projects instead.

Living Room Updates

Monday, November 16, 2015

Since my last living room post, I've done a couple smaller projects. I made these curtains from Waverly fabric. I ordered 13 yards.

Sam installed the light fixture from West Elm.

I primed and painted the fireplace brick.

I mixed together 2 sample cans (Maritime White and Grey Owl) from Benjamin Moore for the paint color.

 I spray painted the existing lamps green. The color is called Emerald, but it looks more Kelly Green to me.

In my last living room post, I mentioned that I wanted to get a yellow rug from Ikea. I went to Ikea over Labor Day, but didn't buy the rug because it only came in one (too small) size. I'm still looking for the perfect rug.

We've decided that our Christmas gift to each other will be the West Elm Finn loveseat, which I just ordered! Unfortunately it won't arrive until February. #firstworldproblems

Here's what our living room looks like right now.
