I've been wedding project queen these last couple weeks.  And our house is slowly but surly packing away into cardboard boxes that get piled up in the corners of every room.

I'm getting excited to have my husband all to myself...as we are moving to a place where we don't know a soul.  I try to think positive about this, because the thought of moving away from my family makes my eyes leak.

So I think about decorating our new place.  I can't wait to create an "our home." 

I'm thinking this pillow is too cute for words.  We had birds on our wedding invitation.  I wonder if every time I see birds I will think of us.  Enter to win a gift cert at August & After to win this!!

if i had $50

It's drawing near...our move to New York.  I'm getting excited, obviously, but the reality of it is starting to set in and it's making me a little on the uneasy side.  We have decided not to "move" our furniture...it would cost way more than any of our furniture is worth...we live among sweet garage sale finds and great old hand-me-down pieces.  Plus, we don't have towing capabilities on our lil cars.  So when we move, we'll have our inflatable mattress (which actually needs replacing as we recently found out it has a leak!) and our clothes and books and whatever goodies our wedding blesses us with! 


So then I started having a lil anxiety about this "choice" of ours.  We won't even have a lamp.  Or a TV.  Or a freaking chair to sit in!  My friend Jesselyn is hosting a $50 giveaway to CSN on her blog. I'm crossing my fingers that I win so I can replace our air mattress....or buy that pretty lamp.  Hummmm.
