All quiet on the home front...

Oh my gosh... it's been 2 months since my last post. Ugh... I knew eventually I would get REALLY bad at this whole updating thing. Honestly, it's not that I've completely forgotten my blog, it's mostly that things have just been SO quiet I haven't had anything to talk about.

I did, however, complete one more item on my to-do list. I finally finished building my entry table. Sorry for the terrible iPhone pictures, but it's all I have at the moment. Once I get it all decorated I can post another photo.

It's definitely not perfect by any means. This one was a lot of firsts for me and I had a LOT of hiccups. This table took WAY longer than it should have, but only because it was my 2nd build (my first was my ottoman) and I was learning. On top of that, I didn't have a nail gun so I had to hammer each nail by hand. If you're interested in building your own, see the instructions here. Ana makes it so easy to build and gives you pretty much everything you need to get started (other than the tools themselves of course :) ).

My next build is going to be my bed. You see, Daniel and I went out and bought this fancy schmancy, big, comfy, pillow top king mattress when we first bought our house. It's sat in our guest bedroom since. Yup, you heard me right. Our GUEST bedroom. Why you might ask? Well, mostly because we forgot to buy the box springs with it and it doesn't have a frame. My solution was to build the bed. Since we didn't have the bed, it just sat. Such a waste. So, once I build the bed we can move our still new mattress and finish up our bedroom! 

I haven't been doing much practice with my camera lately, although I used it a lot back in April. I took some photos of my friend Lauren and her sister, Lindsey, and finally got to get some of my own family. 

This little girl makes my heart smile :) She is just such a happy baby... always. Giggling, laughing, dancing, singing. 

Such pretty girls :) I had a blast shooting with these two girls. 

Hopefully I'll be able to update sooner than I did this time. I'll be keeping you updated with my bed since it's probably the biggest build I'll do (maybe hehe!).
