Log Home Show
Yesterday, we went to the Log & Timber Home Show down at the Expo Center. The Barna reps that we had purchased our plans and logs from were working at the Barna booth and had reserved tickets for us...YIPPEE! So we headed out early and went to see what we could see...
which, unfortunately, wasn't much! The show was so small this year! But, Barry and I did get a chance to sit and talk with Robin and Denny for a bit about some future plans for our house and garage, and Barry got to sit and talk with the builder we used about some issues we have been having with our front windows. So it was still a fruitful trip!
I LOVE the log home shows! Usually so much to see, and so many good ideas...needless to say, now all I can think about is decorating! So when I got home, I got out all of the new bedding I bought for Noah's room and all the accessories and laid them out to see what all I had and what I needed. Then I unwrapped that awesome quilt and laid it out on the guest bed, which is in the room that will be Noah's. It is going to look sooooo good!! I am thinking I will paint his room a buff color, in possibly a suede-textured paint, with one accent wall of hunter green. Last week I was just cruising through Target (big mistake) and found these cute little wall pegs that look like bear paw prints...and they were on clearance!! WOO HOO! So, of course I picked them up! I am planning for Noah to move into his new "big boy room" for his birthday in May. I just need to go buy his cute log bed. And with his room done, the upstairs will be FINISHED! And that will make me so happy!
Now, I just have to pick the paint for the great room and entry way...and the powder room. And the office. And window treatments for our bedroom. And for the kitchen. It never ends, does it???
I'm a thirty-something mother of two, wife to one (haha), trying to live a simpler life in the log home my hubby built just for us. I've been called a tree-hugging granola cruncher by some of my friends, but I'm really not. I'm just trying to appreciate all the simple joys life has to offer...my rugged and handy hubby, my silly kids, good friends, great food, lots of fun, and of course, ICE CREAM & CHOCOLATE ! I love to laugh, so my day is not complete until I've made time to watch something funny before bed...mainly The Office! Come and spend the day with me... we'll have a great time, I promise!
