Our annual camping trip took place last weekend — we always love to camp—-probably one of our favorite things to do—and Memorial Day Weekend has become a tradition (mostly because it’s Ryan’s birthday!). We actually recently purchased some land South of Beatrice to build our own cabin (!!!), but until that happens, we were thankful to have our friend’s Rachel’s parent’s cabin to retreat to this year. (more on the cabin construction in another post coming soon!)

So here are some pics if you’d like to see…. Violet loves being outside and made it very easy on us during her first camping trip. Too bad it rained, but we made the best of it with lots of card playing.

Hope your weekend was just as sweet!

AND… if you see this guy, wish him a Happy 36th Birthday!!

Ryan helped me shoot some video of Violet on Sunday afternoon. Here’s some shots taken in between. What a ‘huggie bear’ as our neighbor boy calls her.

7 months old and she wants to crawl SO badly. She can get up on all fours, but only for a few seconds.

The story of our bedroom. Our master spa-like retreat.

…more like afterthought catch-all waiting for her desperate make-over addition in 3 years. : /

I couldn’t live with it this way anymore. SO BORING. Yeah, we mostly sleep in here, but I was never excited to be in this room. A mini make-over was in order and I saved up my Amazon points to do it. Here’s the breakdown (and the sad, sad BEFORE PIC)…

– new duvet cover (amazon $79)

– new happy red pillow cover fabric $20 (thanks, Aunt Nancy, for sewing!)

– new hot air balloon picture from an estate sale in Arizona last February ($7) sure, it was a pain in the butt to travel back with, but I really love it and it’s rare for me to find vintage art that I love!

– new steel grey curtains ($39 x3 from Ikea; plus shipping)

Everything else I stole from other rooms in the house. It’s nothing crazy awesome, but I’m very pleased with the new feeling it’s created. : )
