Anywho, this past week has been one for all things new!
It all started with a pair of curtains!
I am the type of person that needs to sleep in near to complete darkness, but apartment living means pesky yellow street lights and pitiful aluminum blinds that seem to glow in the light rather than block it. Monday after work my wonderfully gracious mother and roommate journeyed to our Mecca, Target. We, and by "We" I mean "I", took forever picking out the right curtains. I ended up selecting a beautiful silver velvet pair with big-blocked vertical stripes where the velvet alternates from matte to shiny. They are so beautiful!
With the new curtains in hand, I got the overwhelming desire to redo my entire room! Even more time was spent picking out a new white comforter, a pair of euro shams, sweet bed skirt, and a precious decorative pillow that ties in the bedskirt and curtains. All of this went along with the new brown organic sheets I purchased just a few days before!
I will post pictures of my new bedroom soon!
In other new things, I went on my first hiking trip on Tuesday! I ventured to Oak Mountain State Park and was treated to a Subway picnic lunch on a picnic table overlooking the Mountains. So beautiful! After lunch we found our way down to the waterfalls , and walked hand-in-hand down the stream, jeans rolled up and feet soaking up the cool water. The climb back up was quite a workout! I want to go back regularly just for the physical benefits!
I am loving life, you guys. Thank you for sticking with me!
Again, pictures will be up soon!
