Earlier today i got the itch to do some flowers.  I thought maybe i would drive over to my mom and dads and pick a few things, but then as i was ready to walk out the door I realized that i had left my purse in the car last night when we went to the grocery store, which had my keys locked inside.  Also locked in was the stroller and carrier.  Since I was stuck I went ahead and put Rose down for her nap and looked to my yard for some things.  I found the white camellias tucked away on the side of the house, a few branches/bushes still had some fall foliage on it, and a few snips of foxtail fern.  I could see across the street that our neighbors yard, which no one lives there, had some beautiful hot pink/red camellias so I clipped some of those :).  The other day when I was out for a walk i had seen a few things (mostly someones kumquat bush hanging over in an alley), but since i didn't have any way to take Rose with me (all locked in the car) I couldn't go.  I thought about just holding her, but i knew my arms would regret that.  Then i remembered we had a small umbrella stroller!  So I loaded her up and we were on our way (with a mission).  I found a few berries and the kumquats.  Although the people with the kumquat bush were out in the shed so i felt very sneaky...i also quickly snagged the pink camellia too in their yard (all behind the shed that the guy was in)!  This lady was calling out some name at me, thinking i was someone else, but I wasn't and we talked for a minute.  She told me to watch out, she saw that monkey that was on the loose in town in her backyard! 

It had been overcast all day, which made the house dark and hard to take some pictures, but when the sun came out during that golden hour when it shines right in all our windows and the rooms have a nice glow, I was able to get some decent pictures.

a few pictures around the house

It was Thanksgiving morning when I took these pictures so the house is kind of a mess.  Well that really only explains the mess in the kitchen, everywhere else is just....everyday "I live here" mess I guess you could there was no tidying up before the pictures.  In the past month we got a lot of furniture to fill up the house.  A family friend was cleaning out her in laws house and kindly let us take home a bunch of furniture, I think that really helped fill the space!  Here are some snapshots of our new home in South Georgia...   the picture quality isn't that great, sorry.

This is the formal living room.  When we first moved in we hardly had any furniture to go in here, just a couple chairs and the bookcases.
The wall to the left is all windows all the way down.

One of my favorite corners in the house.  I love my little terrarium aquarium!

The green chair was Jeremy's grandfathers, it was in the back of their jewelry store and that's where he use to always sit. The orange lamp and the brass lamp (to the left -there are 2 on both sides of the couch) we got at an antique store.  Pouf from World Market.  The chest was Jeremy's parents. 

I have yet to figure out how i want to do this this is just kinda random stuff up there.  
We had brought in a couple plants from outside too.

Living room, Entry hall, Dining room
(that's a hall closet with the curtains.  None of the closets had doors so I either put up a shower curtain or window curtains to cover it up)

from the front door

The dining room was practically empty until the other week when we got a bunch of stuff from our friends.  

Four new (to us) chairs, cabinet in the corner, and the dresser.  
Jeremy also keeps his keyboard to the right, which is another wall of windows.

walking into the kitchen. 

We got this table from an antique store for a really good deal.
We had been searching for one and all the one we were seeing were either really nice and expensive, or not nice and expensive.

Little cheese ball over there...
I bought curtains to cover the shelves, but I didn't like the way it looked.  It kinda made the space look smaller. 

where Rose gets her baths since the tub is chipping

Rose's room was quite a mess! 

we usually have a cover on the pad but it was being washed ;)

Here is where we spend most of our time...the den.

back door to carport and laundry.
Ziva's bed....but Rose also sometimes plays in it (poor Ziva)

some random plastic eggs over there and a whoopee cushion.

Jeremy playing in the fire pit, 
Ziva out there too.

We had a fire in there the other week when our heater wasn't working and it still smells like burned wood in there 

Lots of windows in this house!!
(and toys)

Ziva howling at the smoke ;)

So that's our home! 
Well except our room, which still has boxes and clothes everywhere and also a guest bedroom/office. Maybe when those rooms are a bit more put together i'll do another updated post.
For the most part though i'm really pleased with how things are shaping up and I'm looking forward to decorating for Christmas!  
Hoping to get our tree this weekend!

Fall 2015 pictures by Lindsey

 Lindsey dyed my hair red the other month.  We tried to do some before and after pictures that day since she also did my makeup, but the lighting was really bad since it was already dark outside.  We decided to get together the next day and get dolled up and take some better pictures.  I love these pictures so much!  So nice to have these of me and Rose.  Here are a few of my favorites from that day...

Rose is just now starting to wear shoes.  I think her feet finally fit in the shoes we have and she doesn't seem to take them off immediately.  This day though the shoes were not staying on easily.
It was probably the first time she had really ever worn shoes.

I love the next two pictures!

little lost shoe

I think she was over picture taking by now

And the next two pictures are just me trying to model...try-hard serious -not serious face, awkward hands, don't know where to look...really, it was just a cute front yard so i jumped it!

Thanks Lindsey!!!
